“4.5 stars! Great Location and Excellent Service!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great location!!!! Only 10 steps away from Myeongdong station exit 2 and 3. There's also a bus station across the street that takes you directly to Incheon airport for 10,000 won/pp. The service is excellent! One day, we stepped outside the hotel lobby and it was raining. While we tried to figure out what to do, the front desk personnel came out and lent us umbrellas! We were so surprised! Also, they picked up our laundry/dry clean items around 10 am and by the time we got back to our room from lunch and touring Myeongdong at 4pm, our stuff was on top of our bed, folded and packed into smaller bags, which made it easier to pack into our luggages! The only reason why we didn't give them 5 stars was because the hallway outside our room smelled like cigarettes and the room was quite small but we didn't really spend that much time in our room anyway since we were out and about so it wasn't a big deal. I usually don't write reviews, this is actually my first but I felt that I had to give them credit for their excellent service and the great location.

Actually this is a delayed review. I went there in 2011 Jan with 2 other girl friends but I decided to write this review since I went to Seoul this month and realized that there had been some improvements to the surroundings of the hotel.

1. Location - across the road from Sejong Hotel where you can take bus 6001 or 6015 from Incheon airport. The timings of the return trip can be found at hotel lobby. What has improved is the roads. There is now pedestrain crossing from the road along Sejong Hotel which means you do not need to lug your luggage passing the underground! Great news! It is also across the busy shopping streets of Myeongdong and there are plenty of restaurants around the hotel. One of the popular restaurant is TwoTwo Chicken. Order is garlic fried chicken. Is so delicious.
2. Rooms are spacious and we love the fact we were upgraded to a corner room where we get 1 single and 1 double bed for 3 ladies. There is also a living room besides the bath and toilet plus dressing area. No complaints since we had the views of N Seoul Tower except the bedsheets are really tired and pillows are flat. The bathroom's drainage also had some minor problems.
3. Value - really cheap! about 70SGD per night per person with breakfast. Breakfast offering is inclined towards western style and is not too bad.
4. Safe with no dodgy occupants in the hotel.
5. Concierge and staff are all very helpful and polite. Thumbs up esp. the guy who will always wait for us who just dashed in 5mins before the breakfast restaurant closes due to our late night chatting and shopping.

This is great when you travel in 3s and find that most hotels offer only twin/double bed rooms.

Room Tip: Kindly ask for upgrades to corner "suite"

Stayed at this hotel on 19th August 2013 for two nights and must say this is a gem.First impressions was Wow; as it contained all the comforts one would expect from a 4 star hotel. It was great that the hotel gives you 3 bottles of complementary water which was very well received coming off an 11 hours flight from the UK. Room has a fridge, coffee making kit, a safe, 42 inch flat screen tv and the best toilet in the World. The toilet is electric , so has a built in bum washer and drier. Come out of the hotel ; cross the street and just walk down the side roads to get to all the action .Hotel deco is nice and modern and staff are very helpful and friendly. I just love this hotel and would highly recommend it. I would most definitely return to this hotel when I return to Seoul.I forgot to mention the comfort of the beds and pillar. I would love to own one of their pillows.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in room at front , we stayed in room 704 which was at the back with no views. Doesn'...

We stayed here for 4 nights from 20/8-24/8 are we were very satisfied with everything from the location which is just in the middle of Myeondong shopping district to the comfortable bed and daily clean towels and free bottled water. This hotel has all you need if you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay while you explore Seoul. We also took the Seoul City bus and there was a stop along Myeondong area and we were pleasantly surprised that the stop was just outside the hotel so we could go up and rest for abit before we continued the tour. The airport shuttle was also nearby. Only gripe if I had to have one was that there were only 3-4 English channels on the tv and it would be great if there were more.

The price and location of the hotel are the big draws. Airport shuttle bus is just a minute away, across the street just outside Sejong Hotel. You can find shuttle timings at the hotel lobby.

The hotel staff speak good English, and are friendly and helpful throughout our stay, esp the bellhops (as we observed) who are very prompt with helping guests with their luggages and instructing taxi drivers with directions.

Our room is large enough for two of us and relatively soundproof. A large dressing table (great to dump your shopping on) sits by the bed and a flat-screen TV mounted above the edge of bed. The well-maintained bathroom comes with a bathtub and an electronic bidet toilet. The signal of the free wireless internet connection inside the room is excellent.

There is no breakfast provided for our booking, which is no big deal as there's a bakery just across the road, and we often explore other areas for eats anyway.

There is only one gripe that I docked a star off for: I am normally not particular about hotel beds, but the bedsheets and quilt fabric used in this hotel rustled too much and badly affected our sleep. If this can be improved, I'd gladly return to the hotel every time I visit Seoul.

Stayed there in May. Booked a triple sharing room direct from the hotel and got upgraded to a corner room which is bigger. The bed was comfortable and also a 42" LCD HD TV. The best part of this hotel is the location. Just opposite Myeongdong shopping area. You can get everything there. Restaurants and food street are all around there. No need to go other places for shopping and eating.

Room Tip: Try and book direct from the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in February this year. Hope the information is still relevant.

The hotel is located very close to the Myeongdong shopping area and some of the big department stores are just across the street. Yet the iconic Lotte Department Store, which is at the other end, is 20 minutes walk away. There are also plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and fast food shops around. Myeongdong Station is just around the corner so you can get on it and transfer to other lines easily.

Hotel wise, the size of the room is just al-right but pretty decent. We did not feel disturbing though our room is facing the main street. The staff was nice and capable of speaking English. They gave some good advices that really helped.

The city’s subway system, in my opinion, is probably one of the most tourist-friendly. The stations are assigned with a three-digit code which is started with the line number and followed by the station number. The Myeongdong station of 424, for instance, means it is the 24th stop on line 4. When you travel, all you need to do is to remember the station number of your destination.
