Amourex Hotel
Ranked #316 of 505 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed October 28, 2010

Prior to booking this hotel, there were only 2 reviews in TripAdvisor. The 2 reviews looked ok for us since we are not really fussy in details as long as there is a clean place for us to stay and with good convenience. Oh horror when I decided to look back to TripAdvisor the day before arriving at this hotel. Out came 2 bad reviews! =(

Arriving at Wangsimni metro, exit station at Exit 2, walk past the fire station and pass Café Bene and you will find a small backlane of low rise clusters of houses. Walk up and you will instantly find this hotel. 3-5m away from Café Bene, there is the bus stop for the Airport Limousine bus. As this hotel is my final stop in Korea, I was happy with such convenience. And yes, the hotel is situated together with all the love motels. But IMO this hotel is like a mixture of tourists hotel and love motel. However, Amourex has proper TV channels (no ‘adult channels’). Oh, and I must caution that within the underground subway link to exit 2, it has many stairs and no escalators, a good 5-10mins walk and climb, be prepared if you are lugging baggages.

Location was good as there are eateries 10m away from hotel and buzzing with locals during evenings. There’s a shopping mall nearby with E-mart. Wangsimni is also one stop away from Cheongnyanri station via Jungang Line and easily accessible to Myeongdong or Dongdaemun via Line 2.

I guess since we are tourists and we booked early, we got the highest floor at level 11. I assume that the lower level rooms are for the couples because I flipped through an album from the reception and all those themed rooms are at lower levels (flamboyantly decorated types). When going up the lifts, I caught a glimpse of different levels’ corridors and I would say level 11 is very decent and brightly lighted compared to other levels that are dark and you know what it meant. Our room is the last at the corner and hence it was rather quiet.

The room was very spacious! Looks like it was newly renovated as it differs from the photos I saw from the web. A couple of lights not working and the layout is a bit weird because the bathtub was opposite of the toilet separated by the entrance door. The washing basin was outside and in the room itself, thus washing always leave the room floor wet. The room was decorated with fake flowers! At least the bath area has a glass shield (no doors) from the bed. From the floorplan map, I realize the room next to us had the bathtub beside their bed (open concept). Lucky I didn’t get that room as I don’t like my bed wet! Our bathtub was a 2 persons tub. No jacuzzi but had a rain shower. Computer with high speed internet is available in the room on a computer table but they didn’t provide a chair! Unsecured WiFi is available, so I could use my laptop.

One very bad complain I had is with the housekeeping department. They do not vaccum the floor! My partner cut his toenails and dropped some on the floor. Those nails were there throughout our 4days stay! Needless to say, I developed sinus problem on the 3rd day as the room became very dusty. They only change the bedsheets/bath towels and dry the bath and toilet areas, other than that nada. Oh, the auto-bidet system was not working and the toilet bowl leaked. Even with windows shut, there were always these pesky little flies surrounding the toilet and bath area.

I don’t really recommend to others and I chose this hotel instead of Hotel Vision because of its close proximity to the subway exit. But when I was there, Hotel Vision is not that far off from Amourex. So next time if I need to stay at this area, I would definitely choose Vision rather than this hotel.

We booked and fully paid for this hotel for 6 nights. After we checked in the hotel upon arrival in Seoul. We regreted the decision for this hotel as the taxi drove pass a whole lots of "love motel" on the same street. When we get into our room, it smells like the smoking room in an airport and the bathroom/toilet does not look clean at all. So we use the computer provided in the room to book another hotel and luckily we found Ibis in Myeong-Dong. Because we already checked in and fully paid, we could not get our money back but it was the best move that we got out of this hotel. The surrounding and the hotel itself does not feel comfortable or give us the right vibe at all.

I wouls not suggest anyone to stay at this hotel. My father and I stayed at this hotel and we found used condom wrapers on the side of the bed. We also had a sofa in the room and there was also open condom wrapers in the in between the cusions where you sit. The bath tub didn't have a shower curtain so the water was all over the bathroom floor. Then the mini refrig, didn't even work. This place is only good for a one night stand quicky! I would never stay here again and I would not suggest anyone else to stay there.

Booked a standard single room and got a free room upgrade (probably because of non-season and low-business) to a twin Room. The room is very spacious with Bathroom (Bathtube) and seperated toilet, 2 Queen-Size Beds, floor heating (typical korean), huge Flat-TV (52"), a computer with free Internet access, Small Sofa, Working Desk, Mini-Fridge, 5.1 Sound System., Lights are controlled by Remote Control only, WIndows can be opend. nice view.

Save neighbourhood, many small restaurants. The hotel is located near Wangsimni Station, providing access to 3 Metro Lines and several Buslines. There is also a Airport-Busstop only 50m away.

Downside: The employees hardly speak english, but they get the essentials.
