Excellent hotel - better than 5*!

The hotel is excellent. Staff is friendly and amenities really awesome. Even the doorman was helpful in loading unloading our luggage and holding the airport shuttle for us and didn't accept a tip! That's rare. Shuttle from airport drops off right outside. It is truly better than a 5* and worth the price. Only downside is its a bit away from the center of activity but a $3 cab ride or a 10/15 minute walk gets you there. We asked for a room with a view and we're given the 19th floor. Wonderful stay - highly recommend and will visit back.

Nice hotel

Very clean and friendly staff. Pretty close to main downtown areas and sites. Also easy access to the subway. Breakfast was over priced and with no options nearby you have no alternatives. Other than that its a good deal and a very nice place.

A little on the rough side

This hotel is not to far from central Seoul but the neighborhood is not very nice. For Seoul I thought the area was rather run down. I only stayed here because my hotel of choice was booked out. The staff was friendly and spoke good English, but I don't think I will stay here again. Alan Sacramento CA

Taxi drivers know "Kukdo"

As a foreigner, Korean is not my mastered language and I had a hard time verbally telling taxi driver where I want to go...i had to write everything down in han-gu....except for this place, just say Kukdo Hotel (with an accent) and most taxi drivers knows this place...ahhh...what a relief! Staffwise, it was pleasant, above global average, but I have meet so many more friendlier Koreans in and around Seoul. Location is very close to subway station, use exit #10, and you are literally steps away! Nothing really closeby to eat. Theres a small ajumma street food cafe to the left of the hotel as you walk out, if you need some food to hold you over-not the best though. I got a partial view of N-tower, which was nice. Make sure you press "Privacy" botton ON, if you plan on sleeping in. There is no added chain lock like most U.S hotels, to keep unwanted or unexpected guests out. I have seen other comments saying that the cleaning ladies got in while they were in the shower, this is the reason why. Rooms are small but adequate. Party of two people, would be crowded if more stayed together...maybe need to upgrade to larger room. I love the vanity space for all my stuff! The lock box was unbolted (like someone else had commented), but my belongings were ok...i felt like it was safe during the whole stay...

Great value, beautiful room!

The room at this hotel was incredibly quiet, clean and relaxing. While the location wasn't ideal to walking to the main sights/shopping, it was certainly close enough to everything (10 minute taxi ride) and for the value, couldn't be beat. The money I saved by staying here more than made up for the $3 - $4 taxi fares it cost me to get to/from the main sights (that I couldn't walk to). However, if you are a walker, you can access some of the main areas within a 20 minute walk. I didn't mind walking as it gave me an opportunity to experience the city as it really is, not only in the touristy/shopping districts. I was a woman traveling alone and this city is VERY safe and non-threatening. The only downfall, there is NOWHERE to eat immediately surrounding this hotel so you have to plan around your meals. I ate two meals in the hotel and they were both overpriced and the food was edible, nothing more. There are only two convenience stores located adjacent to the hotel where you can buy beverages, snacks and soup. The hotel room has a small refrigerator.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Shopping in Seoul is an experience for sure although, as an American, I didn't find anything to be so much less than what I can find it for here in the USA (if you know where to shop). Clothes were about the same but you can rarely try them on. They were stylish however. Knock off pocketbooks and watches were overpriced and you can find them cheaper in Chinatown in NYC. My thought was "Why buy stuff in Seoul, to save a few bucks, when I can buy in closer to home, try it on, return it, etc for only a few dollars more".
