We just returned from our first trip to Seoul. We had a wonderful experience, alot to get used to travelling from the USA! We had 2 rooms for our family of 4--we also travelled with a group of approximately 80 people from the American Taekwondo Association. The accomodations were average. Our room consisted of 2 twin beds, a small desk (no dressers), a small closet, mini fridge, and bathroom. Climate control was a problem during our 8 day stay---they still had the heat turned on in the hotel, even though the daily outside temperature averaged 70degrees. The rooms were stifling hot, with no ability to turn on a fan or open a window. The beds were ROCK hard.....but the rooms were clean, housekeeping was adequate! Meals were a little short of average---we had a mixture/choice of American or Korean based breakfast. We were never at the hotel for lunch/midday or evening/dinner meals.
Internet access was TERRIBLE. The hotel does have a SMALL business center with, I believe, 1 computer with internet---a must for a business traveller. The hotel does have wifi, that was $9 per day, supposedly, but we were never able to get it to work. There wasn't even free wifi in the hotel lobby, which was a major disappointment. We had to walk several blocks to a coffee shop to use free wifi.
The staff was friendly, very little English speaking, but still friendly.
The hotel is a short walk to the subway, which was convenient.
It was also largely populated by school-age groups...there were teenagers everywhere all week. Elevators were slow at certain times of the day, when everyone was going to meals. The hotel also had a very small gift shop--would have liked to have a larger shop to pick up snacks, magazines or other items.
One nice perk for the hotel was the optional American electrical plugs. Our rooms had both American and Asian plugs, even though it was only one, but it helped because we forgot our converters. Flat screen TV in the room. Rooms were very small and cramped.
