I stayed at this hotel from March 3rd to 6th in their blue twin room, I was in room 1004. The room has a single and a double bed and is of decent size. I booked this room through booking.com. The room has a great HD flatscreen TV, normal room amenities eg safe, wifi, green tea ( no coffee or English tea though), but please remember to bring your shampoo and body wash as they do not provide this in the room. My room rate did not come with breakfast. The bathroom has a bath tub and a glass shower and is of decent size.
This hotel is located right beside line 4 of the subway which can bring you to most Seoul sights. The Seoul Tower Cable car is a mere 10mins walk from the hotel. The friendly front desk staff can provide guide. However the walk to the cable car are not for those with prams or for the elderly as there are many steps and a steep alley.
Right beside the hotel is Paris Baguette which make fresh sandwiches and nice coffees, we had our breakfast at this cafe which costs about Won 18,000 for two almost everyday.
The best thing about this hotel is that Myeongdong is right across the hotel, Myeongdong is a shopping paradise. There are so many alleys and streets to explore. You can find most international brands here which include Zara, New Balance, Adidas, R Lauren. Lotte and Shinsage department stores are within walking distances.
At night the streets of Myeongdong comes alive with street vendors and their famous Korean street food. We also managed to sample the famous Korean Ginseng Chicken. This restaurant is located right of Laneige ( Korean Cosmetic) .
Subway line 4 will also take you to Dongdamon ( 4 stops ) - the famous 24 hours marketing heaven.
We did not take the Airport Limo Bus as we have big bags to carry and taxis are surprisingly cheap in Seoul ( not the black deluxe taxis).
The taxi fare with toll set us back Won 60,000.
Seoul is a nice city, but most sights needs loads of walking so if you plan to go please bring good walking shoes.
