“Great location!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Loved the location of this hotel. Stepping out of the hotel, you're already at Myeongdong, across the 7-Eleven and a row of restaurants, shopping and currency exchanges. The room is small for 3 people, but we were only there for sleeping. There is a coffee maker, fridge and safe, which was a plus for the room. The concierge is super helpful and the other main reason I would stay at this hotel again. They're helpful with directions and very friendly. The hotel is 5 mins walk from the airport shuttle and 5 mins walk to the entrance to the Myeongdong Shopping arcade. The subway entrance is a little further, but can still be accessed through the Myeongdong Shopping arcade entrance. All in all, it was a great hotel to stay in, and the prices are reasonable for the location and service.

Hotel Skypark generally receives favorable reviews from travelers. I can believe that; the average traveler will probably like it. The location is great, the staff is friendly and courteous. So why do I rate this hotel "terrible"? The total inability to deal with a problem. I had a reservation for six days - prepaid. Because of bad weather our plane was late and the family had to stay overnight in Beijing. Chaos ruled; there was no way I could get a message to Skypark that we would arrive one day late. When we finally arrived we were tired, and had not eaten for a long time. This was apparently no concern of Skypark's. We only received one message: you have forfeited your reservation - go away. I did not ask for a refund for the night we had already missed; Skypark's position was that we had no right to stay the other five nights in a room that I had already paid for. The room Skypark had already rented to somebody else. After a very unpleasant argument lasting one hour, I finally said that I would go to the police. Only then did Skypark miraculously find a room - a much smaller room than I had paid for, mind you. So, the welcome was not great. The rest of the time the staff was all smiles and very helpful. I believe that unless you get delayed because of bad weather you will probably have a good time at Skypark. I, however, will never go near the place again.

Pros:
- Great location as it is in the shopping and restaurant area of Myeongdong.
- Easy to get to via Airport Bus 6015 or 6001(get off at the Seoul Royal Hotel stop) and it's just 2 mins walk from the stop. You can go to the same stop when it's time to go back to either Incheon or Gimpo Airport. They also have free shuttle from Seoul Station to the Hotel and back between 9am - 6pm if you take the AREX (Airport Express train).
- 5 mins walk to the Euljiro-il-ga subway station
- Rooms are clean with individual airconditioner that you can adjust to your own liking
- Free wifi internet in the room
- Personal fridge with free daily bottles of water
- Bathroom is nice and clean with amenities (shampoo, conditioner, toner and moisturizer). No toothbrush so make sure you bring your own.

I really don't have anything to complain about this hotel. Yes, the rooms are pretty small, but is good enough for two people. If you've been to hotels in Hongkong and Japan - then the room size will not surprise you anymore. Take note though that if your hotel reservation has not been prepaid before you arrive, then you'll have to pay for it when you check in as opposed to when you check out. This actually makes the check out process very, very fast since you just need to return your electronic key cards and it's done.

Overall, I only gave it an average rating because of its price. It's a little bit more expensive compared to other hotels of the same size in the area (like Metro Hotel). If it was priced better, I'd rate it very good.

The initial concern was that it was difficult to get to and from the airport. But if was found out the bus station is just round the corner. It's in the heart of MyeungDong where you can shop and eat till late night. The hotel rooms are very clean and excellent wifi speed! The receptionist was friendly but sometimes have mis-communication due to language. Hotel room was really small but general a good deal for the price!

From Incheon Airport, all you need to know is "Euljiro 1(il)-ga." That's the station you need to get to. And 4300 KRW is all you need. Just make sure you take the Commuter A'REX train, the express is more expensive and won't stop at Hongik University, the transfer point. Once at Euljiro 1 station on Line 2, exit via exit number 5 and walk to the hotel in the direction the exit points. You will pass two of what look like subway entrances, but actually they are entrances to an underground shopping mall. Turn right at the second corner. The hotel is past the Starbucks on your left.

The desk you see at the entrance is actually the information desk. The front desk proper is in the basement. Regardless, the information desk had everything ready for me as I was a late arrival so, the check-in was done quickly. No language barriers between me and Mi-Jin and I was even able to ask how to call home from my room.

The room itself was a bit cramped. Due to the beds, the walkways from the door to the desk and then to the window were very tight. The beds were extremely comfortable. And, as a bit of a futuristic touch, there was no light switch. The lights in the room and bathroom were controlled by a touchscreen panel instead.

There was no curtain in the shower but a glass door instead. Don't worry about water going all over the place. There's a drain in the floor next to the tub.

The two free bottles of water were in the fridge under the desk. All in all, an absolutely wonderful stay!

As I booked my accomodation only 5 days before arrival, I had not much of choices. However, I'm glad that I had chosen Hotel Skypark II given its fantastic location.

Likes:
- The location is in Myeong Dong which has lots of shopping and lots of eating areas. It is near to a subway station, the airport bus stop (Royal Hotel Euljiro stop) and a taxi stand, making travelling around Seoul very convenient.

- The hotel is very new. There is free wifi in the room.

- There are two free bottles of drinking water in the fridge. There is also drinking water readily available on each floor.

- The hotel staff are friendly. They gladly stored my luggage even after I checked out. They can speak basic English and fluent Japanese (probably due to the many Japanese guests in the hotel).

- Safe. You need your room key card to activate the elevator.


Dislikes:
- It doesn't seem to be a well known hotel as many taxi drivers had difficulty locating it despite us showing them the address in Korean language.

- room rates are a bit costly probably because I booked the rooms too late.

- Like most of the reviews here, the rooms are small! I have booked a room with two twin beds. And I was really shocked to see that the two beds were placed side by side with no space in between. On one side of the bed is the wardrobe... and guess what... there is no space for you to walk between the bed and wardrobe. To place stuff into the wardrobe, I had to climb on the bed.

Nevertheless, as the room is clean and I am pretty used to staying in small hotel rooms (in Tokyo), I am pretty happy with this hotel given its FANTASTIC location.

Location wise, it is very accessible, and comfortably located in the center of fashion center in Seoul. Many brands (international and local) are literally a few steps from your hotel entrance. The hotel is also surrounded with food places (local or otherwise). The only downside to it is the size of the room. It is particularly small for people with big luggages who intent to be in Seoul for the shopping!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with windows, since the inside room has no windows and no fresh air.
