Stayed here for one week in a triple room. Check-in was smooth as reservation was prepaid with Booking.com (early check-in not allowed but luggage can be stored near the reception), staff are friendly and helpful who can all speak good English.
Hotel is rather new since 2011, centrally located in Myeongdong near the whole row of cosmetics shops area and only 3-mins walk to Euljiro 1-ga station (exit #5).
Room is small with 3 single beds next to each other and no space to walk in between the beds so the person taking the center and wall-side bed has to get in & out from the foot of the bed (wonders how the housekeeping cleans the room but it's amazingly clean and tidy everyday). Nevertheless, you can still move around the room with 3 big suitcases lying on the floor, unlike some Japan hotels I had to walk sideways at every corner of the room. Toilet size can fit 2 persons at one time and a bathtub (no shower curtain so the floor gets wet every shower) and has a Japanese style washlet.
Hotel provides free shuttle to & fro Seoul Station (every hour from 10am-8pm), Dongdaemun (every hour from 9pm-1am) and Namsan cable car. Also free wifi and we got strong signal in our room and a hot & cold water/ice dispenser on every floor.
At the basement lounge is breakfast place, some computers for free internet surfing and some coin-operated washing machines & dryers (4000won each if I recall correctly). You can buy washing detergent from a separate machine and hotel thoughtfully placed a coin changing machine in case you are likely to run out of coins. There's also a luggage weighing machine (free of charge) which I find all these extra features very handy.
From Incheon airport, it's much easier to take the airport limousine bus #6015 (rather than train to Seoul Station and change to the hotel free shuttle). Alight at Royal Hotel bus stop and you will see KEB bank. Walk backwards away from the bus stop, turn left when you reach a small driveway, walk pass KEB bank on your left and you will see the hotel straight ahead. It's an easy 3-mins walk from the bus stop. There's a Paris Baguette café on your right, good to grab some breakfast or dine in upstairs.
Overall an enjoyable stay and I highly recommend this hotel.
