Perfect for long family stay

Stayed here for 9 nights while visiting Seoul for adoption meetings and sightseeing. Stayed in a deluxe 1 bedroom. Location of the hotel was perfect, a few minutes walk from multiple subway lines (lines 1,2, and 5). The Seoul train station is also close, which has a Lotte Mart (like a Target/Walmart) and shopping and eating areas. It is definitely a business area though, but easy to get to nearby tourist areas. The hotel pool was perfect for our 4 year old, had a smaller kiddie pool about 2 ft deep that she could play in on her own. Breakfast at the hotel was decent, a mixture of western and eastern foods. There was some confusion about if it was included in my room rate...I believed it was, but was told at check in that that it wasn't. I showed them my reservation, and they said ok, but then was charged for breakfast at check out. I again showed them the reservation, and they were good about taking off the charge, but I don't know why all the confusion, and if it was the hotel or the reservation. The front desk was friendly and spoke pretty decent English, but was not so helpful in suggesting places to eat. There are lots of places to eat around, but most are traditional Korean fare. I don't know if they figured we didn't want to eat at any these places or one was no better than the others, but we pretty much were left to try random places. The room was spacious and neat, and the washer/dryer was perfect for a longer say with a child. The kitchen/dinning area was also perfect for a few family meals in. It truly felt more like a home than a hotel. Outside noise was minimal (11th floor) but there was noise from the room next to us. Overall, a great experience, and perfect for what we needed. We will be traveling back to Seoul in a few weeks and hope to be staying here again.

Couple Stay for Christmas Eve

Great Residential hotel. Was full booked I supposed by looking at the size of the crowd there. We came on time for check-in but they had problems with the plumbing. Was told to wait in the cafe upstairs with 2 free drink coupons but after 10-minutes we were picked up by the staff to our room. Had christmas eve dinner with room service for every romantic place seemed to be book near by. Was a great stay, got a room 1-bedroom deluxe was great experience.

Great experience

We recently returned from an eight night stay at Fraser Central. It was the perfect fit for our needs. My husband and I found the location very convenient. Located a short cab ride away from Insadong on one side and Namdaneum on the other. Close to City Hall, Lotte Mart, Starbucks, 7-11 directly behind the hotel, along w/ 3 very good and affordable restaurants. The subway stations are also close. However, in the cold, we preferred to catch a cab. Cabs stopped in front of the hotel constantly, and and we never waited even three minutes for transportation. We paid the extra $ for the morning buffet and found it a very good and convenient option. I have seen reviews commenting that the menu needs to change, but we were very satisfied at everything offered. There is also a Coffee place located inside the hotel, but we like the buffet much better. We utilized the pool, hot tub, and sauna. It was a nice way to end the night after exploring the amazing city of Seoul in the cold weather. My husband used the gym several times and felt it suited his needs. It was open 24 hours, so he could fit his workout into our busy schedule. We stayed in a one bedroom deluxe and found this to be very spacious. The bedroom was separate from the living room and kitchen. It included two bathrooms, one in the bedroom, and one near the entrance. The water pressure and hot water was better than we have at home! The towels were changed daily and our room was kept very neat. Housekeeping was very understanding, as we were often in our room at the times they came to clean. They never forgot, and always returned later while we were out. I would really like to note how extremely pleasant and helpful the young women at the front desk were. Every morning we would give them the addresses of where we needed to go. They would write the addresses down for us in Hangul so we could give it to the cabdrivers. They always remembered to give us a card w/ the hotel's address in Hangul. We used wake up calls every morning and never had an issue. We had several questions about locations and adapters, etc., and they were so gracious and attentive. This was our first international trip, and their assistance was greatly appreciated. In fact, we expect to return to Korea in the next month or two and we plan on booking our stay at Fraser Central again. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling.

very covenient and roomy

The hotel location is very convenient. It is about 10 minute walk to the center of the city. Also it is 10 minute to the subway station. You can go any place by subway. Also airport limousine comes to front of the hotel from Inchon International Airport. The space is a lot roomier than regular hotel room. It has washer (combined with drier), dish washer and all utensils. Breakfast is good. I highly recommend this hotel.

Home Away from Home

We were in Seoul for a long weekend and needed a place to stay. Two adults, two kids. The rooms were huge, well appointed, and very comfortable. Though the location was not ideal, it was not a deal-breaker as we spent most of our time out and about. The hotel staff were professional and courteous, though the front desk was the only service point, where staff doubled as concierges, too.

The Myeongdong Market area is fun for people of all ages, especially in the evening. A great place to experience Korean pop culture. Naemdemong is not as polished, but offers more of a street food/street vendor experience.

Great for family

LOVED our stay at Fraser Place Central Seoul. Pros: Huge rooms, washer/dryer (although the drying clothes takes a very long time), kitchen, swimming pool is perfect for kids, the sauna and hot tubs in the "locker rooms" are awesome. We had an issue with our toilet and literally, within 4 minutes of me hanging up the phone, someone was at the door to fix the problem. Room service was QUICK! first time, it was less than 10 mins, the second time less than 5 mins. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Cons: I thought the rooms could have been a bit cleaner (esp the floors). It was surface clean, but when you really look, it could have been cleaner. The breakfast buffet was great the first time. The menu doesn't change much. It's in a business district, so keep in mind that a lot of the restaurants don't open on the weekends. Definitely recommend Fraser Place Central Seoul for families.

Lotte Mart is near the Seoul Station. Has everything you need, including a Toys R Us. Dongdaemun and Namdaemun are also pretty close by.

What more could you need

Stayed for 9 days in May and can't recommended this hotel more highly. Convenient location only 4 minute walk from Metro station, 7-11 across the road. Room was spacious and extremely well appointed - cant think of anything I could have needed that wasn't there.
