First off I have to say I love this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and the hotel itself is fairly well located and accessible. The amenities provided are high quality and it houses a sauna, pool and fitness club. Breakfast was above average but they do not change their food items. On the final night I ate something wrong for dinner. I called them at 2 am asking if they had charcoal pills. They didn’t have any - that’s fine; they are not a hospital or pharmacy. I spent the whole night throwing up and having toilet runs, hydrating myself carefully with the two complimentary bottles of fresh water. When I had finished them both that night (and I had a third from my workplace), I called to ask them if they could provide me with two bottles of water. The response I got was what I did not expect from this hotel. They haggled with me on water - at first offering for me to buy the two bottles I requested at 3,300 KRW (about US$3) each. I told them I was really sick and the receptionist put me on a long whole and said no, I had to buy. That’s when I asked if the tap water safe to drink, and that I’d record this on TripAdvisor. She finally said she would offer one free bottle. I asked for it to be sent up immediately ‘please’. A manager came up and said I could give them a used bottle and they would refill it for me (heaven knows from where). I asked where’s the one bottle they offered. He didn’t have it. Another supervisor came and finally believed my story cos I showed him my puke bag (he grimaced). The first manager finally came with one complimentary bottle. It is not the cost. In an emergency when I’m really dehydrated and all I want is clean water so as not to aggravate my stomach upset, 3,300 KRW is nothing. But it’s the haggling that was unacceptable, and it reeked of a lack of compassion. The supervisor was slightly better, but the rest, from the phone girl and the manager, revealed no emotions and would stick to policy if I hadn’t put up a fight. It’s a great hotel - comfortable, spacious, but if anything goes awry, don’t count on them, or be prepared to explain through feeling unwell.

Stayed here for about 2 weeks. Nothing wrong with the hotel and the staff are friendly. The area around the hotel is not to great as there are very few restaurants and shops. But in most ways a good hotel to stay at

Hotel was located near Coex. If you plan to attend a symposium there, then i can suggest this hotel. It is also not far from the subway station, the bus station, and there are taxis available in front of the hotel.

Stayed here for the 2nd time – the room was okay. Restaurant was too expensive for me, but there is a shopping centre nearby with plenty of food choices. Breakfast was okay but nothing better than okay. Haven't stayed in any other hotel in Seoul so can't compare.

Went to stay in this hotel due to the global package (EXO concert)... the hotel is good not that great and not that bad. We also got to check in right away. The breakfast buffet could have been better. The thing that I dont like is that it's a bit far to the subways, it's like a 6 mins walk to the nearest subway...
