Definitely the right choice to move around seoul! Very easily reachable from the airport, take the bus mentioned many times in the posts, the stop is the palace one. It takes more or less one hour to get there. Get out of the bus and you will stand in front of a big building, without moving turn your head to the left, on diagonal you will see the sign of the hotel in the roof. Start walking 2 min and in the first alley (where the parking of the building ends) turn right. You will see a small alley and in your right a parking lot (always empty), go ahead 2 more min and you will see a convenience store, turn left and the main door of the hotel is straight there. Very easy. Perfect location close to the palace, the subway, the area with a lot of shopping, the "as seen in TV area" meaning the traditional korean houses, the royal palace, the opera.... everything very close by. Friendly staff, clean rooms, small of course, you get toiletries in a bag, some chocolates and juices en el fridge and very apologetic staff indicating that breakfast is coffee and bread, it was so funny. Apparently they read the reviews and they were trying to manage expectations when I asked at what time breakfast was available. Indeed coffee and toasts, simple. Many hotels advertised in trip advisor are in that area. Highly recommendable if you want to wonder around the city. And the price? Unbeatable, very cheap compared to other options. Of course it is a 3* so don't expect a luxury hotel for that price. I would happily go back there if on a budget. Subway perfectly located, exit already mentioned in other posts, the machines have an english version, people is so well educated and happy to help you, really liked visiting Seoul!
