My wife and I checked into Hotel Icon on 22nd February for our honeymoon. The hotel is conveniently located between 2 subway stations, 2 convenience shops, numerous eateries and attractions. Right from our email correspondence up to the moment we left the hotel, we can truly feel the warm hospitality and outstanding service from the hotel owner and CEO, Mrs Jung. She offered numerous tips and suggestions on how to get to the hotel from Incheon Airport, all of which were clear and the instructions easy to understand.
We were given a room with a double bed as requested, on the 8th floor. The room was comfy and all amenities provided for. Daily housekeeping was done and each day, we returned to a clean and tidy room after a long day out sightseeing and shopping. What was most memorable was on the 3rd day of our stay, the hotel owner Mr Baek called personally to our room, welcoming us and checking with us if everything as ok. He even remembered that we were on our honeymoon and prepared a special gift for us, a beautiful vase of flowers with a personalized note congratulating us. Mrs Jung personally cooked for us a traditional Korean meal, offered numerous tips on where to go for shopping and sightseeing. It was indeed a very memorable experience of Korean hospitality that left a deep impression in our hearts.
Mrs Jung went beyond just cooking and giving us tips, she even personally chaffeured us, not just once, but twice during our stay to our destinations. She recommended us a famous ginseng chicken soup place and personally drove us to the location. When she learned that we wanted to visit Namsan Mountain, once again she offered to bring us there. My wife and I had such a lovely time travelling in Mrs Jung's car and we had a great time of chatting along the way. Along the way to our destinations, Mrs Jung would often point out places of interest, and even stop the car just so that we can catch a quick glance of the places. Mrs Jung went beyond the extra mile in ensuring that we had a good time in Seoul.
I highly recommend Hotel Icon, firstly due to its convenient location, but more so because the service provided will truly enrich your stay and trip to Seoul.
