“Best value hotel in central Seoul”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

I've stayed at this hotel a few times. It's especially convenient to stay here if you are flying out of Korea, because the airport bus stop is just outside of the front door. The Aventree is located a 8-10 minute walk from the subway, and is very close to Insadong, Myeongdeok, and the palace. The hotel amenities are standard, the room is clean (aside from what others mentioned with slightly stained beige carpets), and the beds are comfortable. Bring instant coffee with you (there's a convenience store downstairs) if you need a cup of coffee before facing the world-- the hotel only provide teabags in the room.

We stayed here for five nights. The hotel has modern decor with clean rooms. Complimentary items such as bottled water and shampoo etc. were provided on a daily basis. The staff is quite helpful and they can generally understand both Mandarin and English. The place is top-notch location-wise: it can be reached from the airport via Bus 6005 (the last stop); it is within 15-mins walking distance to Gyeongbokgung and Myeongdong shopping centre. Insadong is 3-mins from the backdoor of the hotel. The only complaints are that the pillows are too soft and that the room can get real hot at night with its heating system since the air-con does not work during winter and I once checked that the room temperature was around 30 degree! We simply opened the window at night to let the cool air come in at the end. Nevertheless, good for value!

Room Tip: try to get a higher floor with street view

The location is excellent for the royal palace area and traditional shopping streets. The rooms are functional and quite large for Asia. Staff are helpful although their English is limited - as it is in most of the service sector here. Good value for money.

I was a little disappointed by the room - a bit dark and had stained carpet. There was also a rediculaous number of LED lights illuminating the roo They could also not supply a non feather pillow which is a quite a big problem with asthma allergies. However it was a comfy bed and a nice modern bathroom - loved the heated toilet seat! Enjoyed breakfast a lot and the location was perfect for bars and restaurants. Hard to say if it was good value as not stayed at other places in Seoul. Seemed quite expensive to me for the quality of the room and being in Asia but then maybe it's an expensive city.

Wonderful hotel in great positions: Insadong is the best place to go out for a walk and have dinner in Seoul. All the hotel is brand new, nice style for the rooms. Staff very friendly, shuttle bus to airport in front of the hotel.
Only negative point rooms are on the small size and breakfast is a bit expensive.

Having stayed all over Seoul while on work travel I was inetrested in staying somewher emore budget friendly while traveling on my own dime. The Aventree is (as has been noted before) perfectl;y located just a few blocks from the "tourist heart" of Seoul. The rooms are comfortable and they even had a reasonably priced triple, great for my family. There is a handy little coffee shop attached for a quick breakfast. But the staff proved hit or miss. Positive: I was looking for my favourite Korean junk food and asked for a reccomendation, the lady at the desk was kind enough to order and have it delivered. Negative: When we were checking out at 5am on December 18 with 2 kids, 6 suitcases, a stroller and trying to get to the bus on time, I left our key in the room...the guy at the desk cursed in Korean (my wife speaks Korean) and made nasty faces at us. The keys are simple cards and from experience at many hotels EXTREMELY easy to reproduce/reprogram. Why the need for the nastiness? Not sure. Just shows the hit or miss quality of 3 star hotel staff.

A good value hotel in a great location. It is very easy to get to from the airport, taking bus 6005 for 15,000 won to the final stop, which is right outside the hotel. Insadong is one block out from the back door, full of restaurants, tea shops etc. Even better, 3 or 4 doors to the right when you leave the hotel is the bhuddist centre, complete with vegetarian cafe serving an amazing lunch buffet of six dishes plus soup and rice for 8,000 won! The historic area of Seoul is an easy ten minute walk away, well worth a look and adding to the benefits of this great location.
