I stayed at Han Suites with a friend for about 6 days in July 2009. First of all, the people at the front desk are EXTREMELY helpful and they speak English very well. They always stood up and bowed whenever they saw us (which was quite unnecessary) and were very courteous. Whenever we went out they would wish us a nice day and because we visited during the rainy season in Seoul, they would stop up before we went out to offer us an umbrella.
When had booked a Studio with twin beds but when we arrived they had upgrades up to a two bedroom apartment! They even sent someone up with us to show us around. The apartment itself is quite nice. There is a living room area with a TV, ironing board and iron, sink, stove, washing machine, fridge, and plenty of dishes and utensils at our disposal. The cleaning staff comes 5 times a week I believe, but not on the weekends. No problem since you can always call down for more towels. There is air conditioning in both the living room and the bedroom. Also, I liked the firm mattress.
There were some things that bothered me but nothing that greatly affected my opinion of this place. First of all, it is not as "high-tech" or up to date as other hotels. The TV is not a flat screen and the equipment for the golf driving range is a bit worn down. Also, the apartment itself smells kind of old, but opening the windows for about 10 minutes solves that problem. The water system is also a little wacky. When I took a shower it would shift from hot to cold water and was very inconsistent, the staff acknowledged this as well, I believe they were in the process of fixing it.
This place is really great for the price. A great place to stay in downtown Seoul. You are walking distance (literally less then 10 minutes away) from Myung Dong. Namdaemon market, Dongdaemon market, and Insadong are a bit further but still easily reachable. You are also close to Seoul Station so you can take the subway and you get a great view of the Seoul Tower. I never tried the food down at the restaurant but there are many cheap and good eats in Myung Dong. We went to Crown Bakery to get breakfast most days. I highly recommend you book this place for your stay in Seoul.
