Decent and worthy

The hotel is not brand new and even it is a little old if you look inside. But my room has a big twin bed for myself use only, space is big enough and the environment is clean. The price is decent,even for one person. I definitely will visit this hotel again

Good location

It was good for the money. They will tear down the whole building to rebuild a nice one. Airport bus stop need to cross the street. All good for our stay.

5 thumbs up and employees served us from the heart.

I stayed at Hotel Astoria for 13 days and I think that I can give overall fair reviews about the hotel. I also personally believe that “Treat others as you wish to be treated” That being said that before expecting kindness from anyone including the hotel employees, show your kindness first. Front desk: I didn’t know that there were so many people working shift. I expected that they were so tired but they never fail to show me their kindness whenever I need their help from finding places and how to use public transportation to even ordering my wife’s favorite chicken. I will give them 5 thumbs up for that. Room Services: I remember that the lady’s name was Ms. Song who was very considerate that when we needed extra soaps to wash under wear and socks after used up the supply, next day when we came back, there were extra soaps and towels in the shower room. We were so impressed and were thankful to her. Restaurant: the buffet breakfast was simple but was good enough to satisfy our need for the morning. The man in charge and the kitchen lady were very polite and impressed us every morning. We could read their heart. He even loaded our luggage on the shuttle when he saw us leaving. We stayed at Plaza, Vabien suite 2, Ramada Namdaemoon, in Seoul, the so called classy hotels, but not any better than Astoria in terms of service of quality. I also travelled in many foreign countries for work or pleasure with my family and stayed mostly in 5 star hotels while on business, but they were only professionally kind hoteliers and nothing more than that. I plan to visit Korea again next May but unfortunately, they are going to tear down the existing Astoria building and build a whole new one that will take about 2 years before they reopen the hotel. Then after that I think I will visit the hotel again. I would like to take this opportunity to thank to all the employees of Hotel Astoria who served my wife and me from Oct. 24, to Nov 6, 2014.

I found that the staff was a bit rude to our party, considering we were guests at the hotel. Other than that, I found the hotel to be good & decently priced.

Business hotel? Absolutely not!

This hotel is marketed as business hotel however with no internet in the rooms, no complementary breakfast, no room service, decadent decor & smelly/stinky room & unaccessible bathroom cause of the stink/drainage spillage i don't see how a businessman could possibly stay here. The averadge tourist may be ok with it, but given the offers around, this hotel has to be excluded from the list of choices. I do not reccomend anyone to stay here untile the hotel is refurbished! Don't be fooled by pictures, room experience is not what you see in the lobby of any hotel
