Location, location, location. That's what they always say. Let me explain. The 6001 airport bus stops right in front of Co-op (not sure if that's a motel or hotel). Walk west towards Hotel Acacia then turn left (south) and you'll see the Ramada on your left. Total walk (stroll) time is less than 5 minutes.
From the hotel, walk north (past Hotel Acacia and then keep going) and you will reach the Gwangjang market on your left. That's also where the Jongno 5(o)-ga station of the dark blue subway line is located. AKA station 129.
From the hotel, walk to Hotel Acacia and then turn right or left at the intersection and you will find the Euljiro 4(sa)-ga station if you turned left/west or the Dongdaemun History & Culture
Park station if you turned right/east.
2 lines run through the Euljiro 4(sa)-ga station: green & purple. 3 lines run through Dongdaemun History & Culture Park station: green, purple, blue (not dark blue).
The metro cost about ~US$1 per person per trip if you do not exceed 10km. I had a group of 4 so it made more sense for us to travel by taxi as a lot of attractions are within a US$6 ride from the hotel. Examples include: Gyeongbok Palace, Changdeok Palace, Namsangol Hanok Village, etc... The Dongdaemun special tourist shopping zone (or something like that) is at the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park station which is made up of shopping buildings like aPm, Goodmorning city, Migliore, Doota, etc... you can walk there from the Ramada or pay a US$2.2 taxi fare.
I had 2 rooms on the 11th floor and both were large and clean. There is no bathtub. The bed is comfortable and I had 5 good nights of sleep. OR did I had too much fun in the day? (: There is a washing machine and a full sized fridge in the room. The staff is very nice and would help you write your destination in Korean so that you can show it to the taxi driver.
I didn't try the cafe or restaurant in the Ramada since there are so much good food around the Ramada. Overall, I would recommend the Ramada and would stay there again if I visited Seoul again.
