“Good Value!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Good and affortable downtown location, the room was clean and quite large (korean standard).
The service was friendly and they spoke decent english. There is a subway station close by and you can walk to Lotte department store. It will take you 10 to 15 min. We will happily come back.

Astoria is an old hotel but well maintained. Room is spacious even a coffee table exists. Bed is comfortable but double size is a bit small for two. Toilet is huge with bathtub and a heated bowl which makes using perfect.
Location is superb - few steps away from chungmuro station which i think has 2 lines passing thru it. It is better if you are using the subway as means of transportation because transfer is easy though i find the myeongdong area better because of the shopping. Anyway. Myeongdong shopping street is roughly 15mins walking...almost 2 blocks away from the hotel.
Bus to seoul tower stops almost in front of the hotel.
Staff are very corteous and accommodating. Check in and check out is a breeze and we were able to check in at 1pm. There's a free shuttle from hotel to sejong hotel where the airport limo bus will stop.

This was OK considering we got a discount on Venere.com but the hotel is nothing special. The restaurant is hardly ever open and when it is there is not much on offer. We had breakfast at the "Paris Baguette" cafe about a block away. The airport shuttle bus stops at the Sejong Hotel, about a block away and across the busy street so you need to ask for the bus that goes there - the Astoria is not on their radar. The room was small with just a small window so got a bit stuffy but it is clean though very plain and dated. It is just a short walk to the metro station so convenient for getting around and also close to the shopping district. WiFi on the lobby only but an adaptor was provided in the room so we could keep electronics charged.

To be honest, my friends and I picked this hotel because of the location but when we arrived it was not really near the train station! Well probably if you dont have big luggage and dont mind walking for a good 15mins, then that's fine. Aside from that, the rooms does not have wifi, flat iron and the power sockets were very limited too. We booked a triple sharing room which was big but the interiors were dull and very old. I'll probably stay somewhere else next time.

Stayed here in the cold winter of January. The room is cosy and clean, not cramped even with 2 big luggages. Very affordable deal through Agoda, very value for money. 10 minutes from the main shopping area, Myeongdong by foot or just 5 minutes by cab.

The location of the hotel is an advantage, near the subway station and walking distance to the shopping areas and restaurants at myeongdung. The staff are okay although we found it very hard to communicate as they are not conversant with English. The room we were given is just the right size for us - we were 4 adults with 1 child , 6 yrs old. We were contented with the room but our problem started right after our check-in - the room air con control seemed not to be working. We requested for assistance and they sent 2-3 people one after the other but still the aircon was no good - very warm. They gave us different explanations why the temperature is warm and stays at 23 - 24. We had this problem all throughout our stay to the point that 1 very early morning, around 2 AM, my daughter woke up sweating. In the end , all of us adults woke up and had a hard time going back to sleep.
