I booked this hotel due to its value and location. Took the train from the Domestic airport and got off at Mapo, and then it is 1 or 2 blocks from the Mapo Subway station. It is very easy to get used to the subway in Seoul. Lots of beer joints, eating joints in and around the hotel. The hotel must have been very grand some years ago, but needs a re-do.
Rooms are clean, but a bit small (but then this is Seoul), no wireless internet and need to hook into a LAN cable, again very irritating.
For those wanting to eat subway - there is one across the main road, a 711 is also there next door. Stayed here for 3 nights and might stay again due to its price and location. Recommended to business travellers but not to families.
Make sure if you are travelling to Korea to get a CEll phone from the airport as the country is CDMA and outside phones do not work in Korea.. big issue.
