I contacted the hotel through two different channels requesting to charge in advance the reservations I've made for my clients in order to avoid they have to pay for the accommodation at check in since they already made the payment to my travel agency. I made the reservation myself and I can provide the hotel with all the information they need to proceed with this charge, but they have shown enormous ill will towards us under arguments that are not justified and they have also stopped responding to emails. I am very concerned about the experience that our clients will have at this hotel if it all starts with such a rude internal staff.
Helpdesk were very friendly, and my roomview can see namsan tower, located in myeondong and near the subway shower was powerful as welll, but their refillable handsoap and shower gel was dirty, so I used my own instead. Room was also spacious
This is my third stay in this hotel. Stayed a total of 6 nights. Wonderful location, airport limousine stop outside (but not operating now). Few steps to the Myeondong subway. Taxi stand right outside, a few steps to the optical shop, Korean supermarket, and my favourite Myeongdong Kyoja! Helpful and friendly staff helped me book an international taxi to the airport. Promotion during my stay with the daily perks comprising a bagel and oat milk. Microwave and laundry services are available and appreciate the water dispensing machine. Good quality toiletries and even provided body lotion. During my last visit in Summer, the air conditioning was not working well but I had a different experience this time. I was able to adjust it to a suitable temperature. The only drawback is the breakfast. I would advise against having breakfast at the Butterfingers cafe. Quality and quantity were disappointing.…
This is a relatively nice hotel with great service. Just be aware this is not a full service hotel. What you will get is a clean room (smallish) with comfortable beds. If you are looking for a full service hotel book the Lotte hotel down the street. Its analogous to a Hilton Garden Inn vs. Hilton Hotel. One thing to note is that the rooms are small. I shared with my daughter and wife and pretty much bumping into all the time. That said, you'll be mostly sleeping there so its bearable for the cost. Location is great, right next to a subway stop and one block from the airport bus (when running). Myeongdong dong shopping district starts one block away and the Cathedral is about a 10 min walk.
This was one of the best hotel stays I've had. The L7 staff was friendly, cordial and helpful. A fully bilingual staff helped me with any assistance I needed in my week-long stay. It is just steps outside of Myeongdong Station Exit 9 - and yes, Myeongdong has been hit hard, due to COVID, but this hotel made the stay worth it. Breakfast boxes were provided, and the coin laundry facility came in handy, as well. The rooftop provided excellent views of Namsan Tower. The only gripe I can mention, beyond their control, is that there are only 3 lifts, and they can take quite a while. Will stay again when I return to Seoul.
A very nice hotel, very comfortable bed with soft pillows and a duvet. The staff were very helpful and friendly. However, the area Myeongdong is very quiet and not much happening. The location is good though because the subway is right outside the hotel, plus there are many shops, cafes and restaurants nearby.
I booked this hotel because of its location and called it home for 12 nights. It did not disappoint! Only steps away from the Myeongdong station entrance and located in Jung gu, it's quite central to most places we wanted to visit in Seoul that can easily be reached by train. Some tour groups central meeting places are also by the Myeongdong station so there's no additional travel just to meet up. I loved it here because everything I needed were conveniently in the streets and alleys next to L7. The room we stayed in was spacious enough for 2 twin beds with a pleasant city view. Being on the 15th floor and in the corner it was nice and quiet. Housekeeping is top notch. 2 bottles of water daily was appreciated and if we needed more there is a water dispenser nearby outside the room. I thought the dispenser water tasted better than the bottled water. Everyday I looked forward to the rain shower. It's so rejuvenating and calming. Bathrooms are modern with bidet toilet. The bathroom is on the smaller side in my opinion but is sufficient for its purpose. Their lounge on 3rd floor and roof lounge are both relaxing and inviting for hanging out. While we were there, and I'm not sure if it's ongoing, a Daily Perks program offered each guest a free breakfast box per day (bagel, banana, oat milk drink.)…
Hip, trendy and chic L7 is smack right in the Myeondong shopping paradise, sans the loud street sounds as it’s pretty high up affording a panoramic view. We had the cathedral view. It’s a bit of a squeeze here but they make up for the lack of space with Malin + Goetz toiletries. The most exciting part of the hotel is the foots that faces the Seoul Tower. There’s also a rooftop bar and restaurant. There’s a perky breakfast box every morning. It’s literally across Myeongdong station making this super accessible. Also, all the shopping streets are behind. Unfortunately, I was tested COVID positive and sent the results late afternoon upon arrival. So I managed to have a quick walkabout before quarantine.Here are the quick lessons in a nutshell if you find yourself COVID positive while staying there: 1. The protocols are unclear. Front desk gave me conflicting information such as the need to do a second PCR test at 9 am the next morning (thankfully I slept through it). I was told not to leave the room. Then told to vacate the hotel as they aren’t a COVID hotel. 2. Koreans can be rude and cold. As we are living in Singapore which is super efficient and English-speaking, we aren’t used to the third-world citizen treatment the moment you’re COVID positive. You’re literally ostracised as lepers. Even taxi drivers refuse to take us (before I found out about COVID status) and taxi drivers will not help with your luggage into the boot. 3. You can’t just be hospitalised. The national health centre will contact you once you’re COVID positive. They will monitor you (I literally got a text from them saying “Mapo-gu public health centre will control you”. You have to apply for permission to be hospitalised. Even so, you will get rejected. My young son who was with me was vomitting so bad that he couldn’t be hospitalised. 4. At the Inje University Paik Hospital, 2 Beavis and Butthead security guards REFUSE to let us into the hospital. We had a very quick audience with someone kitted up outside. Thankfully, a foreigner who spoke Korean helped us negotiate for medication. People don’t speak English much in this country. Add COVID ostracism to the mix, you’re doomed.There’s seriously a lack of empathy in the cold city. 5. You can’t stay at a hotel while under quarantine. You got to pick a homestay at Wehome. It’s all pretty last minute so expect cut-throat prices with sad options. 6. Invest in a good insurance plan that gives you lump sum if you’re diagnosed with COVID. I found out ours only gave us medical coverage so the quarantine miserable days are out of our pockets. 6. It’s 7 days of quarantine then you are sent a notice 2-3 days after which you are then clear to fly. So be sure to buffer the days in.…
Location is excellent, right in the heart of Myeongdong and just steps away from exit 9 of Myeongdong metro station. Many cafes and food options around the hotel. Room was spacious and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again.
Thumbs up to the location, very near Myeongdong subway exit, its important if u have bulky luggages. Alot of tours have meetings points near the hotel as well. As for room itself, its acceptable but i wouldnt say it's was very memorable. The amenities are pretty basic but kudos that they use branded in room shower foam, shampoo. Even comes with nice moisturizer in the cold dry weather so definitely a plus.
