This hotel was probably built in the 70's and nothing has been updated since. The non-smoking room smelled like old smoke and the carpet and fittings looked like it came out of an old movie. It was amongst one of the cheaper deluxe hotels listed on a few internet hotel websites - and you do get what you pay for. If I had to do it again, I'd pay twice the amount to stay in a nicer hotel in a better area.
The hotel is located in a light industrial area with scattered high rise housing a short hop away. A couple local restaurants in the vicinity but nothing to shout about. The only good thing about the hotel is that it's right next to a subway station so getting to and from the hotel is no problem at all (15m from Exit 3 Bangogae Station on line 2 of the subway system). And trust me, you want to get away from the hotel as quickly as you can!! There really is nothing much to shout about!
Having said all that - I also have to compliment the helpful front desk staff. I couldn't get the free internet service working (bring your own laptop / no wifi). She came up to the room and we worked out the problem in a matter of minutes. All this was done with her not speaking a word of English and with me not speaking a word of Korean.
At the end of it all, a helpful staff doesn't make up for all the other shortcomings of the hotel. If you intend to stay here, keep your expectations low.
