I recently stayed for 3 nights on a Priceline deal. I am more trhan happy that I got a good rate as I would have been very unhappy to pay the normal rate based on my experience there.
I arrived at the hotel at around 3.30pm and was asked to wait a bit longer to ensure that i had a "quiet room" as I had requested. The "quiet room" faced directly to the main road and a very loud construction site! I was moved to another floor facing the back of the hotel facing a park which was great, nice and quite. However, next morning, at around 8am i coudl heasr loud drilling coming from a floor above INSIDE the hotel. I called reception who informed me that there was indeed some work going on in the rooms 4 floors above me! So i coudl only imagine how noisy the rooms above must have been. I was then asked if i would like to move room again. Unbelieveably they wanted me to move to a room facing the construction site again! (Outside the hotel they are building a new metro line). Eventually i got a new room that was quiet.
Although rteh room was quiet, it was very hot and teh air con woudl not go below 24.5 c, which for me is too warm to be comfortable. When i enquired, I was told that it was no longer the hot season in Korea, and that the air con did not drop below a certain temperature now! I asked for a fan, and they sent me a small one and informed me that i was lucky as it was the only one in the whole hotel! Thsi did make teh room comfortable though, so i was pleased.
The room itself was adequate , although the carpets, furniture etc looked quite tired and worn. They do need updating. The towels in the bathroom also seemed cheap and thin. Room service prices were just rediculous, but there is a mini mart just opposite the main entrance.
There is a metro station about 10 minutes walk away. They do provide a shuttle i think, but upon enquiring about timetables, I was told that it was being used only for a wedding party that day.
The staff were on the whole were very friendly, although some were professional but not so approachable. The doormen were all very pleasant. There is a bus stop for the airport just outside the hotel, which is very convenient.
Based on my own personal experience, I would not stay here again.
