I stayed for 7 nights in July/August 2013.
Location: At first glance, the location of this hotel is very rough. As everyone has mentioned, it's located in a district that specializes in lighting equipment, so it feels rather industrial. However, the Airport Bus 6015 stops directly in front of this hotel.
Ease of travel: The hotel is located between two major subway stops (Euljiro 3-ga and Euljiro 4-ga) which means you have a total of 3 metro lines to choose from. Most of the popular tourist areas such as Dongdaemun, Myeongdong, Insadong, Gwanghwamun, etc are just a few subway stops away. This makes getting around really easy.
Dining options: There isn't much dining options in the direct vicinity of the hotel. However, the Gwangjang market is just a 5 minute walk away for great and cheap mungbean pancakes, bibimbap, knife-cut noodles, and dumplings. For those who dislike rough-and-ready type of dining and prefer Michelin-type restaurants, please go stay in Gangnam.
In-hotel dining options: Not much in-hotel dining options. The room service menu is also very limited.
Hotel comfort: The hotel is certainly up to par. The rooms are big and spacious; the beds are comfortable and the housekeeping staff highly diligent about their jobs. Certainly value for money.
Quality of service: Someone else has mentioned this before - the reception staff is kinda blunt. But the awesome concierge staff makes up for this deficit.
