“Decent, but remote”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The hotel itself is great and not overly expensive.
My package didn't include breakfast, and it was fairly pricey. Walking to a cafe 3 blocks away is a much better alternative.There is a decent amount of restaurants and several bars 3-4 blocks away from the hotel.
Getting to the hotel is fairly simple: there is a bus (once every 40min) from Incheon Airport to the hotel, and there also is a subway right next to the hotel building. It takes about 1.5hrs to get to central Seoul, and that's the fastest option.

The room and meal vouchers were compliments of Korean Air. I had been expecting to stay at the Hyatt and so was disappointed to end up here, but the room was very comfortable and the wifi connection was very good.

The dinner and lunch were awful, especially since I had decided to skip any fresh fruits and vegetables for the sake of my stomach. I ended up eating spaghetti. Breakfast was better.

The staff were very polite and helpful but startled me when I borrowed some ordinary, not very sharp scissors. They called me and insisted I return them immediately since guests were not allowed to have sharp objects in their rooms. That incident and the view of soldiers in camouflage as we rode across the bridge to the hotel reminded me that I was in a high-security area.

In the morning I walked around the outside of the hotel and thought the landscaping was very well done.

I stayed at this hotel courtesy of Korean Air on a recent trip to London. As others have mentioned, the location is not great. As I arrived early evening I had time just for dinner and then off to bed. The buffet breakfast in the morning was wonderful and a large selection.

I walked the streets around the hotel and, as it was a Sunday, there was not much open.

As others before have said this hotel is located is in a newly developing area so there isn't much of anything but tall buildings. The surrounding area is well laid out – neat and nice with flower beds, trees and a small lake but it lacks any feel the Country itself. If you are here for business or a conference it is fine. The hotel good, very comfortable and well equipped. The standard rooms are small to medium sized but have all you need including a clothes iron, ironing board, hair dryer and tea/ coffee making facilities – if you are finding it difficult to decipher which is coffee and which is tea the sachet called ‘ Jardin’ is coffee! The breakfast is seemingly a good spread but for those of who would like a western breakfast ( I do) the choice is bit limited but its ok. The buffet lunches are dinners are ok but without significant variation day to day. If you want to sample a change there is a small cluster of restaurants a short walk from the hotel – just about five minutes. This is a sort of a park area around the lak which is good for walking. The gym is pretty basic.
Shopping – Seoul is a good 1 ½ hours away on the metro and you have to switch lines once. If you don’t know Seoul and you have only limited time I wouldn't advise it. The e- Mart which is in Dongchung gives you a Wallmart type of shopping. It also has a good Samsung and Apple store. Across the road from it is ‘Square One’ - a new shopping mall that has come up in the area. It houses some international and Korean brands – H&M, Zara, Adidas and a collection of little Korean shops in the basement. Dongchung is just 5 stops away on the metro and metro station just behind the Hotel itself.
I would certainly stay here again but not if I am on holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have a good view of the park below - the higher you go the better it is!

Korean Air put us up in this hotel overnight, including a buffet dinner and breakfast, en route from Australia to Europe. It was a 30 minute bus ride from the Incheon airport.

The twin beds were large and extremely comfortable. The shower had fantastic water pressure. The towels were thin and ragged, and sorely in need of replacement.

The buffet dinner was a disgrace – a mix of inedible, lukewarm Western dishes presented in bain maries, and a few decent salad items. We shared a bottle of Spanish tempranillo (40,000 WON).

Breakfast was also disappointing – heaps of Korean options, fruit, yoghurt, dreadful croissants, chewy toast, and watery cold scrambled. The coffee was undrinkable.

The highlight was the ride across the world’s 5th largest cable-stayed bridge, more than 12 km in length.

Had Korean Air placed us in their other option, the Hyatt, which is only 5 minutes from the airport, we would not have seen the bridge. However, I would assume that the food at the Hyatt, would have been far superior!

Very nice hotel at decent price, front desk is polite and convenient location, walking distance to convention. First day I had dinner at first floor, instantly feel uncomfortable after eating the small dishes, vomit in the mid-night and still sick the second day. The 19th floor breakfast is good at $14.

Walking distance to the convention centre, right beside the park and subway. There are restaurants and cafe nearby. The front desk crew can do a bit more training language-wise. Other than that, the place and rooms were very clean, breakfast was good although they clear up your table exactly @ 10 am.
