My husband and I stayed a the Hill House Hotel for three nights over Thanksgiving and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk uphill from the Namdaemun and Myeongdong street markets, the best markets in Seoul in our opinion. The bathroom was very spacious, and enclosed in glass, an elegant look. No shower curtain which got the floor wet everytime we showered, not sure if that's a Korean thing. The room was a little on the small side due to the large size of the bathroom. There wasn't a small table for my husband and I to sit and enjoy tea together. The floor was heated and the temperature seemed well controlled. Good thing since we weren't able to adjust the temperature. The room did have a slight smoke odor although it was a non-smoking room.
As other reviewers have stated, the hotel was hard to find. Our cab drove up and down the streets asking pedestrians and ended up charging us an arm and a leg for his random searching. If you cab it to the hotel, make the driver call the hotel before leaving to get directions. None of the cabs we took knew how to get there. Fortunately after the first time, we were able to direct the rest of the cabs where to go.
The front desk people spoke English and were really helpful in guiding us on where to go. We appreciated their guidance. The breakfast was a simple fried eggs, toast with butter and jam, and shredded cabbage. Nothing to write home about, but it was nice to have the convenience of breakfast before leaving the hotel.
