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

First of all, the staff are very friendly (as is usually the case in Korea). Also the location is hard to beat right on the door step of the main tourist Myeongdong area. For us, that was about as good as it got for us. Given the hotel shares a foyer with an office building, it gets quite busy there... More

This is not a luxury property but it has all you may need for a Seoul visit. I openly recommend it and these are the reasons: 1. Location: Unbeatable in the middle of Seoul, right next to Lotte Shopping Mall, in front of the main square, walking distance to the most lively pedestrian malls in the city and with restaurant,...

Sitting right next to city hall and the old Lotte Hotel and department store, the President Hotel is somewhat of a Seoul legend, yet a rather bland one reminiscent of the 1980s in South Korea. However when I recently stayed in the President for a few nights (on the 17th floor), I was in for a pleasant surprise at first.... More

This hotel is located in the city center of Seoul, between Lotte Hotel and the Plaza Hotels. You can go to Cheonggye Stream, palaces, and shopping malls easily. Nearby, there are lots of famous restaurants which are famous for a hot dish called stir-fried octopus.

If the standard definition of a 4 star hotel is paper thin walls where you can literally hear guests next door sneeze and eat their food, then this is it! No closets in the rooms where you can hang clothes. Only a bar with hangers on the wall next to the TV. There is also no iron in the rooms... More

First of all, the staff doesn't speak English very well which in my case turned into them charging me for their mistakes. Secondly, the room had to be changed because of the smell of cigarette, so they gave me another room, supposed to be an "upgrade", with a huge stain on the carpet and looking quite old. Breakfast is nothing... More
