I was on the conference trip and the school paid for the room so I am not sure what type os room it is and how much it cost. The room looks amazing in my opinion. Everything seems to be new and decoration was great. I had a good view from the window too. Be careful and prepare for plug... More

The location is great. Basically just across the street from Seoul Plaza. You have the subway around the corner. A few restaurants as well. And a CU convenient store. About 10-15 minutes of walking distance to Myongdong shopping district. When I first arrived after 12 I was told I had to wait another 2 hours in order for the room... More

The hotel is located walking distance to Myungdong shopping and Namdaemun market areas. The lobby of the hotel is nice but the rooms are very outdated and the beds are small. But they do have free wifi and parking which is great.

Stayed for 2 nights for business. Greeted poorly by the reception who frowned during the entire check-in process. The room is quite old and dirty in some areas, regardless of asking for non-smoking I can still smell signs of smoking in the room. Asked for extension of the stay due to business plan changes, got the same receptionist and continually... More

Hotel is a great location. Overlooks Seoul Plaza. Next door to Lotte for meals and Myongdong for shopping. Room size was large. Furniture is old, worn, and cracked. Really need to replace. Free wifi was good. Lobby and elevator give good impression. Would stay again based on price and location.

The location is very convenient, subways, Korean Air Airport bus stop the shopping district within very short walking distance. My room was small and in a very odd shape. The bathroom was rather small, but functional. The room was quite old and there wasn't enough outlets to plug in my iPhone and iPad. The wifi was relatively fast in comparison... More

I stayed in this hotel on 2 occasions in the same week, in different rooms. The location is fantastic, within walking distance to department stores, Myeongdong shopping area, Insadong, Seoul Museum of Art and Deoksugung Palace. Getting to the hotel from Incheon airport was easy too, via the KAL bus that cost 16,000 won one way. The bus stops at... More
