Premiere class stylish business hotel in the center of Seoul.
Newly opened Hotel Elleinn is located in the center of Seoul, which is the heart of Korea in terms of business and culture. In terms of transportation, the location provides excellent advantages since Seoul station, which is the central hub of KTX line, and Yongsan station are reachable within 10 minutes on foot, and Metro line 1,4 and 6 run nearby.

For the sake of convenience in business,newest computers and broad-band internet are available in all rooms, and independent meeting rooms and business center are operated by hotel. Underground bar can be also used for business meetings and conferences.
Locational advantages include enjoyable shopping areas such as Myun-dong,Itaewon,Sungryemoon market, Dongdaemun market and Yongsan electronics shopping center, and attractive places worth going such as Seoul Tower, the war memorial of Korea and National museum.Addiionally, Sookmyung women's university is only 15 minutes away from the hotel. We always serve fresh food and various menus for breakfast with our best. You will enjoy the unique and excellent services of Hotel Elleinn. The hotel also offers the amenities like Lobby and Reception.

Odd little hotel

The place was a little odd, but I have not stayed in any other hotels in Seoul, so I can't say if it is the hotel or the city. The room was tiny with barely enough space to walk around the bed. But it had a largish jacuzzi tub and only window was in the bathroom. Everything including the ac, lights and tv were controlled by the same remote control. And even after three days I could not figure out the lights exactly. I settled for clicking at random till the lights were close to what I wanted. The hotel itself is not particularly close to any attractions, but is very close to Seoul station, so if you take the very convenient train from Inchon airport, it is a very short cab ride. It is also very close to the Sam... Univ station (#4). (The subway system is quite comprehensive, and can be a little daunting with the transfers, but for the English speakers, everything is clearly marked and announced in English in addition to Korean. ) I walked to itaewon from the hotel, but it was a longish walk. Everywhere else I took the subway. I had asked the front desk to book me a cab at check out one day in advance and they said they will do that. But at checkout time the person at the reception said they don't do it. In any case I had lots of time and it was very easy to flag down a cab outside the alley.

Definitely take the airport railroad to Seoul Station and then cab it the rest of the way. Note that the hotel is in an alley and the cab driver may not know it. So if you are not a Korean speaker, get the name and address of the hotel and if possible directions written out in Korean. My cabbie ended up calling and talking to the hotel for the info (once I figured out he was asking for their phone number).

Great location

This hotel is in a great location. It is very close to the Seoul station, and 3 subway lines are available within 5 minute walk. No safety deposite box is in the room but available at the front desk. Coin operated washer and dryer are in the basement (They even had free laundry detergent!). The room has a very spacious bathroom and shower (Jacuzzi tub for 2 people).

Three subway lines (line 1, 4, 6) available within 5 minute walking distance, and many major attractions are on these two lines. There are many good restaurants between this hotel and subway stations.

Love Motel

Located next to the main Train line and tucked in an alley way. This Hotel is truly a Love motel. Small room felt unclean, and had live mosquito in the hotel room, I ended up with few bites. Not recommended for business, but good for budget traveler.

Excellent

Couldn't really ask for much more. If you are a foreigner from the USA, you will find the beds less plushy then back home. But they are surprisingly comfortable. Also, everything is in Korean including the remote controls all (lights, television, air purifier, and air conditioning). Wi-Fi available in the room. The only Downfall is that there is only a curtains separating the bathroom from the main area, if you are super private probably not the place for you. But I was there on my honeymoon so that made things very interesting! =)

pretty good, except for room layout

Location was great (just a few minutes walk from Namyeong station), but if you have lots of luggage make sure to take the taxi from Seoul Station (taxi should be ~$5 wheras Namyeong station doesn't have escalators). We are high-intensity tourists, so we only used the room to shower and sleep. Ups: - location. Taxi rides from Dongdaemun market or Coex mall were <$7 (subways close after midnight) . - visibility (tall lighted building can be seen easily from train station/taxi) which made it easy to find. - pretty clean. basic room with fresh towels and bathrobes. - their english service was good enough. - wifi was good (in-room computer station was usable but definitely our laptops were better). - definitely one of our cheapest options. Downs: - room layout: no door between bathroom and beds in our twin room. One of us had to turn our back using our laptops while the other showered. - shower curtain: a little dirty. - a little hot/muggy even though we went in Feb, but was mostly corrected by opening the window.

We found a lot of Korea restaurants closed after 11pm, but many restaurants (not bars) by our hotel were still open. The one we tried was just ok, but at least they were open after midnight.

OK for a short stay

The hotel is very close to Namyoung station which has it's good and bad. Just one stop from there to Seoul station where you can take the airport railroad to Inchoen (~50mins ride). The downside is that you can almost hear the jingle they play every time the train arrives at the station. (I was on 8th floor). The room was nice and they provided a PC in the room (which will be useful if you can use korean windows) Also the bed was quite hard. Other than that everything's good

Great quiet hotel

this is a great hotel, I have stayed here a few times. The staff speak Korean and English. Everything in the room is in Korean, with English translation from the hotel amenity guide to the remote control (which controls, lights, a/c, tv, and more!!! All with one remote. Room had a Jacuzzi tub... a two person tub which is a great amenity. The room has business type cards with the directions to the hotel in Korean and English that you can just show to a Taxi Driver or other Korean in case you get lost. Centrally located for sightseeing, business, and military personnel in Seoul

Nice,clean and centrally located

we arrived at Incheon Intn. Airport and simply took the only railroad/subway line to Seoul Station ( Central Railway Station in the city of Seoul ). From there take the line 1 to the next station called Namyeong - from there you find the hotel within 400 meters. Elle Inn is centrally located and close to many attractions. The Seoul City Bus will stop at the USO/nearby the Elle Inn and this bus drives tourists around for 10 USD all day long - go on and get off the bus whereever you want - great!

Many restaurants around - local and foreign ones. We loved the korean grill restaurants where one grills meat right at the table with many small dishes like vegetables/kimchee served aside -6500 won(.All shopping areas/malls (clothing/electronics..) can be easily reached with the subway.Korean Subway homepage has excellent tourist infos and suggestions!
