“Good location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Location of this hotel was great as it's just on the opposite side of Myeongdong shopping area and just within 5 minutes to convenience stores and the metro station. Room was not spacious but clean and comfortable. Sound-proofing was not good as you could hear doors banging from early morning in your neighborhood on the same floor. We wondered if there had been renovations going on somewhere inside the hotel during our stay, as there had been noise (though not really loud) of drilling and hammering from 8:30am. Front staff had been friendly and helpful. No direct shuttle bus to and from the airport. However, they have free shuttle bus (sometimes in nice private car!) going from the hotel to Sejong hotel nearby, where you could catch the bus to the airport.

I stayed at this hotel for it´s GREAT location if you like shopping. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the breakfast is delicious however the bed is very hard and i had to stay only one night and decided to stay at a different hotel for the next day as I had a hard time sleeping.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2011

This hotel was booked for us by our Korean suppliers. When we heard that its a Korean hotel, we were a bit apprehensive but had no option as other hotel international hotel chains were fully booked during that period. However, we were not dissappointed by the hotel given its excellent location close to a hustling market with lots of restaurants. The Metro station being just opposite the hotel also helps matters.

The spa/pool seems to be only for males and going with your wife/girlfriend is an absolute no no.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2010

My Fiancee and I stayed here during our first week in Seoul. It is incredibly clean, with good service, and is very close to Myeong-Dong shopping district, where you can buy high-end merchandise (Chanel, Polo, Ralph Lauren etc). Having said that, it is a typical asian business hotel geared towards male business travellers. One of the things that drew me to the hotel was it's amenities - Sauna, indoor pool, massage etc. However, these things are only available for male guests, and my fiancee was not allowed into them, which kinda defeated the object of the stay. I also got the impression that there was a rather exclusive but seedy 'full service' massage option available at the spa, or in your room, which is typical of such hotels in Asia. My overall opinion was - not worth the money. There are hundreds of fantastic hotels in Seoul (and lots of very cheap motels too if you don't mind roughing it - 'love motels' are an acquired taste, but only cost you 30,000KRW a night), that paying the 120,000KRW a night seemed immensely extravagant.
