I and My Family were staying one week in this hotel (family room).
The hotel staff is very helpful in responding my email prior we came there when we asked about
the way to reach the hotel from Incheon airport.
The breakfast was also delicious and fresh.

Room Tip: Family room's equipment is complete,nice and clean

Stayed her for two weeks and it was o.k. Its central location near Gangnam city centre makes it ideal. It is also near to corner shops and the subway making it quite convenient to get around. I like the fact that there is a kitchenette (although I didn't use) and washing machine in each room.

Except for one day, cleaning service was efficient. They really make an effort to keep the place clean and fresh.

Breakfast and dinner was mainly Korean food which I enjoyed for the first four to five days, a little more variety would have been good. It is nice to promote the local cuisine but thought should also be given to international guests who would sometimes want an alternative. The good thing is that there are other restaurants in close proximity.

The free wifi was a plus and the staff very helpful. I did not like the fact that there was only one TV station that is 50% English. I was at least expecting to be tuned in to CNN, but I made do with watching some Korean Dramas which I found to be pretty good.

Overall, it was a reasonably good stay.

Room Tip: If you travel in the fall or winter, rooms on the east side warms up early in the day.

I stayed at the Seoul Residence hotel for 11nights during my stay in seoul. the hotel is conveniently located in the business hub of the city, therefore was very convenient for us to commute to Coex center which was about 2kms from the hotel. The little glitch was that it was not on the main road, but on the 1st back lane of the main road. We had to walk out til lthe main road to take a taxi or reach the metro station, but it was a short walk.

The hygiene of the hotel was well taken care of. There was a daily house keeping except sunday. The staff was cooperative. my trip was a business trip extended as a holday with family.

Room Tip: this is a service residence hotel and one should take care of choosing the size of the room. the roo...

The hotel was super super clean. We did not find one spec of dust anywhere!! Very clean. The location was super nice. We did not have to pay that much for the hotel which made out experience even more amazing.!

Stayed here for 5 nights on a work trip with a group. The hotel is in a good location in Gangnam with easy access to the metro line (only a 3 minute walk). The surrounding streets are full of coffee shops (like most of Seoul) and a variety of restaurants. There is also a convenience store right outside the front door of the hotel.

The hotel itself is quite tired - the lobby has zero character - just an open area with a front desk. The hallways themselves are really dirty and a bit smelly (perhaps because people are smoking in the stairwell...). After walking down the hall, I was nervous to see what the rooms would be like, but luckily they were clean and rather spacious - although lacking any charm. There was hot water but the pressure in the mornings was a little weak.

Breakfast was pretty good, although the space is really crowded so get down there early!

Would stay again if I was traveling for work with a group, otherwise I would look for something a little bit more "fresh."

Stayed here 1 night, arranged by tour group. Did not have chance to see the surrounding but room & corridor itself is very much like Japanese apartments. Hotel reception & coffee house (breakfast) area is really tight when it's crowded. We had a twin room. Though its very compact, it comes well-equipped and there is floor heating as well. Room is very white and gives a very clean feeling, definitely a good stay if on a budget.

We had a great time staying at Seoul Residence - not only this is far more affordable than hotels - but also because service is reasonable, rooms are like small apartments, and location was very convenient to us. We had meetings in COEX - either we can take a train - just one stop down from Sellong station is Samsung station where CoEx is there, else one can walk too - 20 minutes walk by the watch! seriously. was very convenient walking - except one evening when it was drizzling but still we managed to walk back!

ROOM!
great - fully equipped kitchen - with utensils, microwave oven, grill, two burner stove, dish washing area, etc... refrigerator, deep freezer; washing machine; very comfortable sofa area, dining area (good enough for two); work desk is very good; and well lit; and good bed, very good airconditioning with heated floors!; bathroom is good too - and house-keeping is good as well. The breakfast is okay - with some western and some Korean choices - so we were happy - except that I craved for coffee - so either one can get coffee or tea from convenience store right outside the reception (open 24 hours) or go to coffee shop hardly 30 seconds walk from hotel!

Will surely stay here next time too.

HOW TO REACH: Either take a bus from Incheon Airport to Renaissance Hotel - and walk towards Sellong Station (hardly 5-10 min walk) and hotel is BEHIND Mr Pizza or Paris baguette... the sign board is not very visible so be careful not to miss it! Taxis often miss this hotel despite GPS!

Room Tip: go for higher floors perhaps?
