Great location in the heart of Myeongdong with tons of shops and eateries around. Close to the airport limousine bus stop (bout 3 min walk) outside Ibis Ambassador Seoul which serves TWO buses to Incheon airport- bus 6015 and 6001. Attached photos of the bus schedules. To get to the hotel, once you alight at same bus stop, facing the road walk down on the left side, turn left at the next road (there may be an alley before that can't quite remember), walk all the way down past the police station in the middle of the street. It's a pedestrian only street at night. You'll be able to see the Hotel J HIll sign at he top of the bulding from afar, together with Seoul Royal Hotel sign. Hotel itself has a lift access card to go to your floor. There are maps of Seoul in the hotel lobby which are useful for getting around. It's also near Lotte department store where we encountered tons of other tourists shopping for duty free items, the souvenir and foodstuff shop is on the 10th floor. We bought our ginseng from here.
We took a deluxe double bed room with a window for more space but the room is still rather small, with space for probably only a moderate size luggage bag...we had to place our haversack and shopping bags inside the wardrobe cabinet. We stayed in June so didn't have many bulky coats or stuff...I imagine it might be a bit more difficult in winter if you have a lot of luggage. Room amenities wise, J Hill has everything you need- luggage rack, toothbrush, flatscreen LCD tv with quite a variety of channels, toiletries inlcuding disposable shaver, bedroom slippers, hairdryer etc.Loved that they give you 2 complimentary bottles of water each day. The remote controller for the tv is able to control the aircon and lights in the room as well..cool if you want to off the lights while still in bed. The toilet sink is in the same cubicle as the shower which is a bit wierd (it means that your sink will get wet if you shower) but we didn't have an issue with this.
Overall, it's a small room but we enjoyed our stay here...great value for money compared to other hotels in the area.
The only downside was that breakfast time is only from 7-9am which is rather limited. Breakfast was included in our booking but we ended up not eating it at all because twice we had to leave before 7 (once for the DMZ tour, another to the airport), and once we simply overslept and came down only at 915am. There are many eateries around though so that's ok. Try a chain restaurant very popular with the locals called Bongchu Jjimdak just round the corner (in the alley behind the hotel)...they only sell one type of dish (seasoned steamed chicken kind of like a stew, you can google it online), we enjoyed it very much, costs 22000won for 2 pax.
