The biggest advantage of this hotel is its spacious room and relatively low price. You may take Bus 500 from the airport and get off at after around 3-4 stops (there are two 500 going to two directions so make sure you take the one to Eunnamdong) But taking the taxi is also very good. We took a taxi from there to the airport and it cost around 5000 won only. If you choose taking the bus, get off at Eunnamdong, Then walk down the street until you reach Milano Crown hotel and Starbucks, you will see a horizontal pedestrian walk full of Chinese seafood restaurants called 寶健路in Chinese. walk down that traffic-free road and turn right at the first block, you will see the hotel. The hotel is indeed surrounded by restaurants but I feel that they are over-priced. for example we asked two seafood restaurants how much a king crab was, they charged 100,000won/kg, which was 50% higher than what you would pay for back in Noryangjin Market in Seoul. If you want more affordable seafood, you can take a taxi to Dongmun Traditional Market where you will probably get good sashimi and abalone at a more reasonable price. The location is far from most popular tourists sites so you will have to either take a taxi to different places or take a bus (but you need to know how).
The room is very spacious and clean. But the cleaning lady forgot to wash our cups. Also despite we paid for three persons, they only gave us two sets of cups and towels. When I asked for one more glass, the counter staff only pointed at the coffee machine and told me to get paper cup over there, so don't expect high quality service. Also the male hotel staff does not speak English but he did understand all my request such as lending me an adaptor, a knife, and calling a taxi for me. Wifi in room is rather unstable. You won't get warm service but you get a very spacious and clean room at a pretty good price.
