Tiffany Tourist Hotel
Ranked #364 of 500 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed April 2, 2010

Close to a train line. Rooms look old, probably have never been renovated. They do a good job daily cleaning the room daily but everything looks so old that it really is in need of a renovation. Showers are not separted from the rest of the bathroom so when you shower the enitre bathroom is wet. Only stay if you want to save money cause I paid $40 a night for a six night stay. Free wired internet.

The word "hellhole" does a fair amount of justice to describe the Tiffany Tourist "Hotel". For about $35 a night, you can find some rather reputable hostels around Seoul - particularly north of Anguk Station - that are of invariably better quality than Tiffany. She's just terrible.

Check-in was easy, and the staff seemed fairly friendly, however that's where the compliments end. Upon the opening of the elevator doors to our floor, our noses were assaulted at the stench of what seemed to be a Marlboro cigarettes convention. We booked a non-smoking room, and the entire floor (including our room) smelled like an ash tray. I went downstairs to ask for a non-smoking room, but to no avail. The man at the front said that it was already a non-smoking room and there was nothing he could do about previous guests smoking in the room. That explanation didn't account for the ash tray and the box of Tiffany Tourist matches in our room, however. And quite frankly, the whole room was one errant match away from being set into oblivion - there were wires running out of the wall that seemed to have no other purpose except for frightening us. The beds were harder than a bottle of tequila, and they were bunched up right next to each other. The television was very small and had access to an array of local Korean channels; no CNN or BBC, however. The shower was rather limited, however it got the job done. The icing on the cake had to be the piece of chewed gum that was stuck to the nightstand; a very lovely touch indeed.

After arriving after 20+ in transit from the states, we found this hotel to be very unacceptable. I don't expect much for $65 a night. That's a very reasonable price for a room in a good location (which it is in, near the COEX and Chungdam Station), especially in the capital city. But trading $65 for a bed of nails and a mild case of second-hand emphysema isn't worth it. Pay the extra and stay at the Riviera, or try the traditional guesthouses around Anguk.

P.S. - the phone seemed to be for display only, as it didn't work.

Great location near the COEX and the subway. Hotel staff were friendly and most spoke English. Front desk was very helpful to a foreign traveler and wrote down names of places for me to show taxi drivers.
Room itself was clean and as advertised. Suggest specifically asking for a room with internet if that's important to you as otherwise the rooms do not have it.
Diner near lobby is small but standard dining fare with some Western food available.
Prices are reasonable.

This hotel was fine but difficult to find. Don't believe the transportation info on the company website or Expedia. Don't take the 6006 bus from Incheon. It doesn't drop you off by the Rivieria Hotel but instead It drops you off at the COEX Mall. Instead, take the 6010 bus from Incheon and get off at the Rivieria Hotel and walk about 5mins up the street and across the street is the Tiffany Hotel. The Tiffany is directly across from a building with a GE (General Electric sign) on the rooftop. OR, if getting off at the Cheongdam train station, use exit 14 and continue to walk straight and the hotel will be on your right! I found this the hard way. I walked around for 1.5hours looking for his hotel. The nearby residences and people on the street have no idea where this place is.

The hotel hallways and building itself are old but the rooms are clean with hardwood flooring, mini-bar with comp water, and clean bedsheets. The tv gets CNN and BBC and an all movie channel. The pillows are hard on the bed. There are also comp toothbrush, comb, etc. The rooms are very quiet.

The COEX mall is a 15 min walk and the hotel staff are just OK. The older manager guy is not all that friendly or attentive to guest needs. Overall, the hotel is fine and in a good shopping area and close to transit. Just make sure you take the 6010 bus from Incheon to save a lot of time.

Decent hotel. Free ethernet supplied internet in each room. Western style (though more of the European-esque) bathrooms. Right off of the Cheongdam subway station so quite accessible. There's a bus stop right outside which runs a few direct buses each day to Incheon airport for only ~$10. Never tried breakfast so can't comment. A bit dirty in the halls.... I mainly utilized this hotel as a base station for sleeping and was out travelling/exploring all day. Excellent prices available on Hotelwide.com....I booked for ~$65/night...
