No better service!!
It was great experience to me. First, i reserved as smoking room but as a gesture of kind, front desk lady suggests non smoking room for my convinience. later as my requests, (because i really need a cigarette-_-) she changed room with smile face!!

just hot bath!
wire of temperature indicated 43'c, was off from the wall.

Hotels can be very pricey in Seoul and for those not daring enough to try the non-established chains this might be the perfect option. OK you're not going to get the high class amenities you do in the other luxury hotels but you're going pay at least half the price!
Very well situated to City Hall and just opposite Lotte Hotel makes it very convenient. There's an airport bus that will bring you from Incheon right to the front door (almost). I ALWAYS use the airport bus whenever possible, again it saves you a small fortune compared to a taxi.

Hotel is very clean, and both my wife and I enjoy the location so much, as it is located in the shopping belt area. Food is never a problem as there were alot of small eatery around the hotel. The only setback that I feel is the elevator. Though there are like 5 elevator in the ground floor lobby, but only 2 is usable. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely be coming back to Seoul again during the Autumn.

Best merit, I think, is location and amenity. Location was so good for shopping. And amenity, especially spa and cell phone rental was nice. Spa, it’s my first experience and I began to loved it. It was so amaging. And cell phone rental was uinque. I stayed one day so I didn't used, but it seemed to me stylish. I think it is a good service for long stayed guests.

Lovely hotel, great value for money and couldn't have had a better location, it was right across the street from the Lotte Store. Would definitely go back. Can't comment on the food as we ate out. If you go in the winter make sure you have plenty of warm clothes, it was -12 on one of the nights we were there.

Room Tip: Ask for a view if you want one, can either be of the Lotte or the Tower (some rooms just have a vie...
