Hotel Aventree is located close to jongakk metro station which makes it super easy to catch the AREX train from the airport to Seoul station, and then transfer to line 1 and go two stops to jongakk station. Beware the big walk between the airport train and the metro station though! A taxi from Seoul station will be between 5000 and 10000 won, so quite cheap. The hotel facilities are excellent, with clean, tidy and comfortable rooms. Insadong cultural street is really close to the hotel, and it takes less than 5 minutes to walk there. You can also use the metro station Anguk (orange line) to easily get around Seoul. The concierge at Aventree booked a tour for us, and were friendly and helpful. I'd happily stay here again. We didn't pay the extra for breakfast, so I can't comment on that, although the kiosk within the hotel was basically a 7-11 where you can buy snacks, breakfast, supplies etc. Enjoy Seoul

I stayed in the Aventree for a few nights, and have had the opportunity to try many of its amenities.

On the pro-side, it is excellent value for money, the rooms are clean, relatively spacious. The breakfast is excellent, yet not included n the room and more expensive than the brunch deal that they propose at midday. The cleaning service was good. The location of the hotel is perfect for tourists... The staff is very courteous and helpful.

On the side to improve, the amount of trainees there is too much, since they come unsupervised at odd hours. I arrived early in the morning, was met by a trainee who made a mistake regarding my rate, opening my credit card, etc. Then on the day of check out, I was attended by two trainees who had no idea that my room had been paid for before, etc. Their english was not enough to respond to my simple instructions regarding payment and I ended up having money debited from my account... which remains to be returned as of today, even though their boss called the bank to fix it... So, an obvious need is for trainees at reception to be backed up by a ergular member of staff, this will avoid such type of mistakes. understand that this is a new hotel and that people need to be trained, but not at the customer's expense...

Another important point, for travelers with children, is that their windows are not equipped with basic security normally present in hotel rooms, and open completely: very dangerous for children. There is no security for windows at this hotel, and they are very reachable to children due to a bow-window type of arrangement... My daughter could have fallen to her death if she had been unsupervised while she tried to open the window out of the blue... The matter was quickly corrrected by the hotel, which dispatched a team to block the window completely.. which meant no fresh air for the next 6 days... still, a priceless compromise while being faced with the possibility of a dead child.

Stayed four nights in this very modern and clean hotel which has a nice location in Jongno-gu district - there are temples, shopping streets and subway station etc. within walking distance.

The room wasn't too big but still well equipped and comfortable. This has to be quite new hotel as everything looked so tidy and clean. Staff was friendly but had a bit limited english skills (which is common in Korea).

Breakfast buffet was comprehensive with both western and korean stylish food.

Can highly recommend this hotel, good value for the money.

The Aventree Jongno was a very plesent stay for 10 days on business. The rate was reasonable for Seoul with excellent service and modern well appointed rooms. While the rooms are not large by western standards, they are well equipted and very modern. I worked out of one for ten days and never felt cramped. Rooms were well cleaned and services every day, including 2 water bottles every day. I especially appreciated the hotel water kettle and coffee supplies.

It is in a convenient location for the subways, busses, key government offices, plus some of the major shopping areas in Seoul. Breakfast is buffet with a large range of choices as well as the ability to have egg dishes cooked to order. In the lobby is an accompanying Tea Oreum, with great teas, coffee and modest snacks. There is also a small 7/11 off the back entrance which is very convenient when on a longer stay such as mine

The hotel is located between two subway stops about 3 blocks in either direction, for seperate lines, a third line is only 2 additional blocks. It was all very convenient as the weather was below freezing every day. I liked everything about this hotel and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: My room faced the street with very little room noise. I am not sure what room would have been better...

I like the warm greeting from the staff members at the check in desk, and the room was meticulously kept. In spite of sitting in the right in the middle of the busy areas of Insadong-chogyesa temple, the hotel gave quiet and serene feeling, beyond the bustling city. The local phone and internet was free, and morning buffet style breakfast was included, so it was an excellent value to stay!

It is situated smacked in between Anguk Station and Jonggak Station which will get you anywhere else in Seoul. It's also walking distance to Jogyesa Temple, Changdeokgung, Changgyeongung, Gyeongbokgung, Jongmyo Shrine, Insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village.

The staff are super friendly and rooms are very comfortable and modern in design. However, WIFI is lacking but the Business centre which consists of 2 computers at the reception area is sufficient.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay where sightseeing is on the itinerary.
