“most amazing hotel room ever”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

The hotel is really 2-3 minutes walk from Jungno 3 ga station, which is connected to 3 train lines hence it's easy to go around. There is no major shopping places near the hotel, but it's near Seoul cinema, where one can watch JUMP performances. There is also a 7-11 nearby. At night, there are roadside stalls on near the roads which is quite lively. The airport limo is within walking distance as well (feel free to ask the counter for directions).

GS hotel is relatively new, and I'm truly impressed with the hotel. the room is a little cramped, but it's very well equipped. I stayed in a room meant for 3 people, and the beds were nice and comfy. the aircon and ventilation is good as well. the huge flatscreen tv is a joy to watch, and there is wifi and an actual PC in the room, so you can go online and check stuff whenever you need. 3 bottles of mineral water and 3 canned drinks (of different flavours) are provided free each day, which is something I've not encountered in other hotels. Moisturizers, hair-styling cream, soap, towels, shampoo, body wash, hairdryer are provided. The bathroom design is a little queer but it's big. The staff are helpful, and there's free breakfast provided each morning. It's simple food though (like bananas, cereal, bread and instant noodles) but it's sufficient for us. The room is cleaned each day, and it's really clean and nice.

I would highly recommend this place for one who doesn't mind travelling a little bit to go myeongdong, No doubt it's near the train station, but the train stations in seoul are huge and you'll have to walk for a while (up and down the steps etc) to get to the platform

We stayed 3 nights in this brand new hotel near Jongno 3 Metro-Station. You can reach it from the Airport by bus no. 6002 (10.000 WON). You can walk to many sightseeing attractions like Gyeongbokgung-Palace, Changdeokgung-Palace or Insadong.
You also can relax at the 8,2 km long artificial river "Cheonggyecheon" which is a few minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms have wifi for free, a huge TV Screen and very modern furniture and are very clean. The breakfast will be offered from 7-10 am. The choice is very limited (toasts with butter and marmalade, fruits, cornflakes, coffee, juice). For us it was absolutely satisfactory.

During our holiday we also stayed 3 nights at Doulos Hotel (quite near to Hotel GS). We would prefer Hotel GS.

Room Tip: hotel has rooms without window or rather a wall a few centimeters in front of it (eg. room no. 301...

I stayed in March 2012 for 2 nights. It is a new hotel just off the main road in a small street, so have the address and phone number handy when you take a taxi. My cab driver had to call and ask for directions. It is very near Seoul Cinema, where 'Jump' is showing.
The location is pretty central, near the Cheongye stream, and walking distance to Myeongdong and other attractions. The Jongno3 station is just 5 minutes walk from hotel and a few subway stops from Namdaemum and Dongdaemun.
My room was small with no window but adequate. Nice in room PC and free wifi. Heated floor and toilet seat. My only grouse was no wardrobe.
Breakfast is very simple with self-service coffee/tea, bread, cereal, juice, etc. It is sufficient for me but those of you used to buffet spreads might be disappointed.
Although most staff cannot speak English, simple words and gestures should suffice. I was offered an umbrella on my way out on a rainy morning, very lovely service.
Overall I would say it is great value for those looking for a safe and quiet place to sleep.

Room Tip: I was a solo traveler so I got a small room with no window and wardrobe. Perhaps you can try to ask...
