“Fantastic view”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

The hotel is modern style with an elegant oriental touch. Rooms are really comfortable, big and clean, with 1st class complimentary bath products and all comforts.
Hotel staff is extremely kind and they all speak English.
Breakfast is a bit boring, mainly based on eggs and pork, but the view from the restaurant (and many of the rooms) is stunning: beautiful skyline and the adjacent park.
Very good position too.

Room Tip: Request a room with view over the park.

Overall, it was decent. For about $100/night, it was worth it. I would stay again because of the great location and the vacinity of the metro rail and also to the Korean Air Limousine bus that takes you from/to Incheon International Airport.

PROS: location was great, it overlooked the Lotte man made pond and it was pretty. Good view of some skyscrapers. It is within walking distance to Lotte Shopping Center which has the Jamsil underground metro rail. Great, location! The staff was curteous also.

CONS: wi-fi not available, bathroom needs serious caulking, can be a little loud when you open your window since we were situated in front of the Lotte amusement park (screaming from roller coasters), bed a bit hard. Breakfast offering was a bit bland, but the view is good from the 10th floor. Towels were so dirty, I would suggest bringing your own travel towel (seriously).

Great location right on the lake a short walk from Lotte complex. Hotel room was good - bed a little hard, but that's probably the asian preference. The room amenities were good and with a well equipped bathroom - large bath, lots of hot water etc. The only negative was a pathetic breakfast offering. I have eaten in the restaurant (great views overlooking the lake) on previous trips and its ok, but not great.

Overall, a good standard hotel.
