This hotel is excellent. It is stylish and modern, and feels like a luxury hotel as soon as you walk in. The staff are extremely attentive (and there seemed to be a lot of them in the lobby!) and we found everyone to be helpful and friendly. The room was quite big, although there was only room to put one suitcase. There was a huge picture window looking out over the City Hall, and the bathroom was also separated from the room by a large window – although you could close the blinds for this! There were high quality toiletries provided and also tea and coffee and the usual mini bar. There a choice of restaurants (although we didn't try them). The lounge bar area serves food, although it is very expensive – probably about normal for a hotel but felt all the more pricey compared to the general cost of eating out in Seoul. Likewise the bar.
In terms of location, the hotel is perfect, with access to the City Hall metro station via a connecting tunnel from the hotel. There is also a lot to see within walking distance, although taxis are really cheap for getting around too.
This hotel is not a bargain but I would definitely recommend it for the quality of service and the standard of the accommodation.
