The hotel is a solid business hotel with terrific staff and a very clean and modern environment. The room, though small, is well appointed and very efficient. The concierge is very helpful - especially since Google maps doesn't work in Seoul - and the overall atmosphere is strong. It's about 10-15 min walk from the major sites l, which is... More

The staff is very friendly. The location is great for shopping and restaurants. The hotel has easy access to the subway. The kids love the indoor swimming pool. This hotel is one of our favorite places to stay when we visit Korea.

Good bussiness hotel well located close to the commercial center with a lot of dinning possibilities next to it. The evening buffet is great, with large variety of asian and western foods.

This is a centrally located hotel which caters to tourists - both Korean and foreign (American, European, and Chinese). Although it is the oldest hotel in Seoul, it is nicely renovated and has several restaurants, multilingual employees and all amenities for a 4-star in the States. The restaurant prices would be on par with a 5-star. Service is at best... More
