Really not a bad a deal for a hotel so close to the City Hall. I stayed here for three nights and was generally satisfied. Was a bit surprised by lack of closet space and not drawers to unpack. Things look a bit out of date, carpet is about shot, but it was OK overall for the price. I see...

Hard by City Hall - you are well placed for the delights of central Seoul. The hotel were helpful, finding a room quickly on early arrival. The location and price make up for the odd shortfall - slightly confused concierge in English and very aggressive (high) pricing on room service and the in-hotel cafe/bar - certainly relative to what you'll...

The hotel is central to everything in Myeongdong.....probably the busiest shopping district of Seoul. It's only 5 mins to Lotte Dept store and duty free. But President sits in a unique corner overlooking city hall which is a quieter side of Myeongdong. The room was very well furnished (typical of Korean hotels..ha ha), with a modern/boutique style to it and...

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...

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 The lobby of the hotel is nice but the rooms are very outdated and the beds are small.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.
