Hotel Lake
Ranked #240 of 529 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Stayed at the hotel for four nights during a business trip to Seoul.
Hotel room is quite Ok, although the view of the backside is not so beautiful.

Breakfast is something you better skip, costs around 10$ but this is not a buffet, just serving of what you ordered - American, Local or continental type, very minimalistic.
Around there is variety of coffee shops that possible to get descent espresso and light snack.

Hotel lacks of a fitness club, there is sauna region but it looks very suspicions...there are also two underground floors so called business services, usually used by locals.
BUT! it is located just across a street from a great lake which is surrounded by special round route for jogging and walking - best option for fitness.

In general, if the region is convenient as a start point this hotel is OK for affordable price.

Room Tip: Try to get the lake view

I stay at the Lake Hotel at least 8 times a year. It is consistently good. The rooms have slightly different themes, but similar layouts.

This is not a luxurious holiday hotel, however it has everything you need, very spacious rooms and is exceptionally clean with very efficient staff.

Well located hotel with large,comfortable, scrupulously clean rooms with great tub, shower and bath supplies. Fridge and coffee/ tea station and well regulated heat/cool and television all remote controlled. Pleasant accommodating staff. Didn't try the restaurant because there are great soup restaurants, a coffee shop on the park and a dessert cafe to die for within less than a block. No Wi Fi but a computer station in the lobby.

Room Tip: A view of Lotte world ( Disney knock off) is very pleasant.

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.
