I stayed in this hotel in September 2016 whilst on a trip in Seoul. The room I had was spacious with lots of added extras. (TV, phone, WIFI, fridge - which is replenished with water everyday for free, a kettle, excellent view, air conditioning) Room service everyday! Its location is ideal for visiting Seoul with the station just down the...

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times. It's at the heart of the financial sector and next door to the National Assembly. Reasonable restaurant options and amenities. Wifi is a bit choppy but for the price a good place to stay.

We are currently staying at this property, and if there is one word to describe the room we are in is "OUTDATED". There appears to be 2 types of rooms here deluxe/executive and standard.

Staying in Yeoido

Neighborhood Profile
Yeoido
Along with Gangnam and Samseongdong, Yeoido completes the trifecta of Seoul’s three main business districts. Steel and glass towers are the most visible sights, reflecting Yeoido’s general association as a business hub. But Yeoido is also where Korea’s laws are debated and enacted by Korea’s legislators within the iconic National Assembly Building. For an escape from urban life, the Yeouido Hangang Park is one of the most popular parks along the Han River for Seoulites. Each spring, cherry blossom trees go into full bloom and the sight of the rows of pink trees and cherry blossom petals blowing in the air is a magical one that shouldn’t be missed if your timing is right.
