I chose this hotel because it was a pick up point for one of my tours (a day trip to the DMZ). It's in a really central location, within walking distance of many of the major sites, the subway (it's near a direct line from Gimpo airport) and the Seoul City Tour bus. The hotel is also only a short walk to the pick up point for my second tour.
The staff spoke English and were helpful and friendly.
My room was small and didn't have much of a view (at least it had a window - I noticed, as have some other travellers, that some internal rooms have no windows) but it was clean and well-equipped and the bed was very comfortable. it was also very quiet.
The hotel has two restaurants - I didn't try the Italian one, but the Korean buffet (with some Western and Japanese items) was convenient and varied. I think I got my money's worth on a couple of evenings when I hadn't eaten much for lunch. There are also many cafes and restaurants in the area too. The American breakfast was good, although the continental breakfast didn't strike me as good value. I tried the Korean breakfast too and it was tasty - it was more like a risotto than a vegetable porridge, which is the rather unappealing description.
It was a bit of a surprise to discover that the sauna ismen-only (no women-only hours), not that I was desperate to try it out, just curious.
I would stay there again (as long as I had a room with a window) because it was convenient and clean, and the staff were pleasant.
