I attended the World Voice Congress at the COEX and was looking for a cheap hotel in the area. I travel no frills, and the hotel is pretty much just a place to stow my stuff and to sleep in. I saw this hotel in the Agoda website, and, being only $47 a night, it seemed perfect for my modest needs.
From the airport, it can be reached by taking the 6010 airport bus, which cost only W15,000 a trip. You come down at the Riviera Hotel stop, walk a bit more down the street. You will see a building with a Hite Beer billboard across the street. Cross the street walking toward that building, and the Tiffany Hotel is right there. Just reverse the procedure on your way back to the airport. Bus comes every 20 minutes or so.
I was given a Japanese style room on the 6th floor, with no chairs and a low table. The AC took some time to cool up, but that is OK. The room had TV with CNN, BBC and English movies. It also had a small ref. This first room had no internet cable, but there was a public computer near the front desk which had free internet use. The bathroom had a bathtub and hot shower.
Inexplicably, they wanted me transferred to another room on my third day because they needed to repair my AC. I did not argue anymore because of language difficulties with the staff, and just requested to be transferred to a room with internet connection (which they did). The bathroom this time had no tub, but it had a rain-type shower overhead. No curtains, so the whole floor will get wet after your shower.
Anyway, there was a Family Mart just around the corner for basic needs and quick meals. It was a 15 minute walk from the COEX, which was not bad on a cool dry day. It is very near the Cheongdam subway station, very convenient. The front desk guys were generally friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was no hassle at all.
