When I was looking at a holiday in Seoul, all I wanted was a hotel somewhat central to Seoul city proper to allow for walking access to tourist sights. Fraser Place Namdaemun absolutely fits that as it's roughly a 10 minute walk from Seoul Station, 5 minutes from City Hall Station, 15 minutes from Gyeongbukgong, 5 minutes from Deoksukgong etc. etc. etc.
The Namdaemun in its name refers to the fact that it is basically opposite the Namdaemun gate (Sungyemun to some others). My room faced South and I had a towering view over the gate, a picture is as below.
Staff were extremely courteous, towels were changed daily and rooms were cleaned daily as well (a bit overkill personally, but when it comes to good service, who's gonna complain?)
Breakfast was provided as well, from 630am onwards and while the selection was limited, it was enough to choose from. Choices ranged from the typical continental type breakfast buffet spread to a bit of a Korean style breakfast - rice and small dishes at the side.
Facilities in the hotel included a gym and a sauna/spa on the 16th floor, and it's absolutely a beautiful place to work out as you get to see Seoul from high up. The spas are your typical cold and hot pools, with one hot pool indoors and one hot pool outdoors if you're into spa'ing in the great outdoors. It was a very relaxing place to go to unwind after a long day's sightseeing and loosen out the leg muscles.
All in all, I greatly recommend Fraser Place Namdaemun and would return in future.
