Staff speaks superb English

Good location, 10min walk to Hoehyeon Station. Comfortably sized rooms, with wifi. Breakfast was simple but satisfying - toast and eggs freshly prepared. All the staff I've communicated with speak English really well, really helpful as well providing maps and directions. :) A little suggestion for them to separate smoking & non-smoking rooms though. The room I've checked into has smell of cigarettes. But that's the only flaw.

A Good Place to Stay

Trip Overview: one night layover in Seoul and wanted to see a little bit of the city before heading out (Jan 2014) How I Got to the Hotel: Took the Airport Rail from ICN to Seoul Station (4550 Won), then did a transfer to Line #4 to Hoehyeon Station (1650 Won). I then walked from the station to the hotel. The walk was kinda tough but doable with my 20 kg luggage. I pulled it up a slight incline for a couple of blocks (Toegye-ro 10-gil), pass the 7-11 (on Sogong-ro 3-gil), take a left up a steeper hill, and finally, a flight of stairs to get to the lobby. Note there was an express train from Seoul Station to ICN for 8000 Won, but I took the all-stop train instead. What I did: I had until 11AM on a weekday to walk around, so I took a quick stroll around Namdaemon and Myeondong areas, which are roughly 1-2 blocks away from the Hyeohyeon station. Unfortunately, not too many shops and stores were open, so i just grabbed some coffee and enjoyed my walk around the area. Room: Room was very clean and very warm. Bed was firm like other beds in Asian countries. I had the double room with a window. But even then, the window had a frosted decor, so it wasn't much of a view out the window. Room had a hot water heater, fridge, and a toaster oven (or something like it). Staff: Spoke English quite well. All the staff were very friendly. For the complementary breakfast, just tell the lady how many eggs you want, and she'll make it for you. I had toast and coffee with my eggs. It was nice to have a Western style breakfast there. Hope this helped you out a bit. Have a safe and wonderful trip.

Right around the corner, there's a 7-11. I got into the hotel late at night, so I went out to grab some food there. Lots of stuff from sandwiches to many varieties of Asian cup-o-noodles. The hotel has a hot water heater, so you're all set for the noodles.

6 Nights Free and Easy

I enjoyed my stay in the hotel with the friendly staff who have good command of English. It has a centralized location where you can walk to Myeongdong and Namdaemun in less than 10mins as well as the Famous N Seoul Tower. However, the uphill path is quite a challenge when you go back with many bags of shopping goodies. Moreover, if you're planning to go back to the airport on your own with those heavy luggage by their subway, please prepare for the staircase challenge! All in all, the stay was pleasant one except for a loud auntie at the breakfast area who is real direct and at times get fierce too(:

OK for short stay

The hotel is located within walking distance to the largest shopping district of Seoul. There is also a nice trail about 30 meters from the hotel which leads to Seoul tower with spectacular views. My main complain is that I couldn't switch off the heating in the room, so it was getting very hot at night (had to wake up several times and open window). The rest was OK -- good for its price.

Seoul stopover

We found the Hill House Hotel conveniently located and had all the amenities required for a stopover. We were able to get a true Korean experience as the hotel is located in a non tourist area. The staff were wonderful and the room clean and with good amenities. Good Wi-Fi in the room. The breakfast was good but very limited(you have to like eggs and toast) and perhaps more variety, especially Korean food would be appreciated by all. I would stay here again.

Catch the airport train and walk to the hotel, otherwise catch a 6015 bus and get off near Ibis hotel and walk.

Ordinary hotel

Location - good, close to shopping centres, markets and plenty of good restaurants. Metro station 5 minutes walk.. Room - clean with huge bathroom and TV but no bedside lights, All lights controlled by an electronic touch pad on the wall by the door that worked with difficulty, sometimes taking minutes to turn off or on. Window glass is frosted so unable to see outside. Breakfast - AWFUL! The woman who serves the fried eggs and toast (all that is on offer) barks at you like an army sergeant and expects you to clear your own table, then shouts at anyone who doesn't. Staff (apart from beakfast cook) - helpful to a point and certainly always pleasant but could do with more training. I asked for assistance to book a DMZ tour and it took some time to convince them that whilst it said minimum of 3 on the tour leaflet that referred to the numbers on the tour not the number required to make a booking (only 2 of us). On making the hotel reservation given directions from the airport that advised to take the bus 6015 and get off at Hoehyeon station. We ended up taking a taxi from the last stop as the bus didn't stop anywhere near the station. It is possible to take the train from the airport to Hoehyeon station, you just need to pick up a metro map and make a line change. It is also cheaper on the train. Overall - any good points are outweighed by bad, making an ordinary hotel.

DMZ tour - be aware that tours operating on Sunday and Monday don't go to all areas. If you want to go to where the truce was signed and also the joint security area then plan to go another day. It's still worth a visit If Sunday or Monday are only days possible for you.
