Definitely NOT 3 stars - more like 1 star!

When I arrived at 11:00pm, the receptionist knew very little English, so it was difficult to explain to her my reservation. When I received the keys, they gave me a room that I didn't pay for (I paid for an upgraded triple room). After a few minutes of being lost in translation, she gave me the keys to the room I paid.. but when I entered the room, the room STUNK so bad with cigarette smoke. I then proceeded downstairs to exchange the room to a non-smoking room, but to my surprise there wasn't a non-smoking room! She did change me to another room but it still stunk. The room was very basic, but it reminded me of those 1970 hotels, with its very distasteful array of color and technology. The A/C was NOT working. The bed sheets made me itch. The beds were uneven for the back (it lopsided to one side). The pillows smelled. The only redeeming thing about this hotel was that you could take a hot shower. That's it, folks! Also, the walls are paper thin, so I heard everything from the neighbors, including those above and below me. It was truly a hellish experience. I would NOT recommend this to anyone, especially since I paid close to $100 USD for this hotel on a weeknight.

Issues w/ A/C

Room was okay value for the money considering the other options that were available in Seoul. Very near a subway station and about a 20 minute ride from many tourist areas downtown. However, if you are going in the summer expect it to be hot. They only operate the A/C from 6pm to 9am, and even then it barely works, our room never dipped below 26 degrees C even in the middle of the night.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Cheapest way from Incheon Airport--take the commuter rail line to Seoul Station, it follows the same tracks as the express, but is only around $4 for an adult vs $13 for the express train, and only takes about 15 minutes more, and departs more frequently than the express, so it actually can end up being faster. Then from Seoul Station transfer to the No. 4 subway line north to Miasamgeori station, go out exit #3 and walk straight for a few hundred meters to reach the hotel.

Best price in Seoul/Close to Subway

Best price in expensive Seoul...excellent location, 2 minute walk to subway station (Mia samgeori)Blue line #4. Exit # 3 and walk straight for 2 minutes, hotel on your left. Hotel and furnishings are a little outdated but for under $100 it's unbeatable. Staff was very helpful and spoke good english. Only complaint was that they advertise free WIFI which was not the case but they will provide you with a LAN cable for free internet in the room should you bring a laptop. Bonus was the whirlpool tub that proved to be usefull after a 12 hour day of sight seeing. All and all this was an excellent hotel and I will stay there again.

Good value for price

From the descriptions of the Hotel Victoria, I was a bit apprehensive: I thought it was going to be far removed from the city and have shoddy furnishings. Thankfully, these impressions did not mirror reality. The hotel was very close to both airport bus and metro stations, giving easy access to the city. The front desk staff spoke English and were helpful and friendly. The furnishing were okay, not 5 star or anything, but definitely clean, sufficient, and efficient. I have no complaints!

There are many restaurants, including American chains, and locally run typical Korean places around the hotel, within a 5-10 minute walk. Definitely take a stroll around the neighborhood and drop in to try a couple of them!

Victoria Hotel, Seoul - Good value

The large clean rooms allowed for a comfortable stay in Seoul. The location was easy to get to being close to a large subway station and airport bus stop, as others have said. Very good value compared with other hotels in the area. Our room was on the 8th floor and was quite modern, although the bathroom was a little on the dated side.Would be happy to recommend to others.

City with Energy

Hotel is located near metro and bus stations (5 minutes walk) and three major department stores are within 10 minutes walk. Downtown is about 20 minutes metro ride and we used metro (a basic fare is about 80 cents) every day to visit museums, theaters and other shopping centers around Seoul. The room requires a key to operate every electrical functions including AC (I understand that utility bill is very high in Korea) and only one key was issed and I wish the hotel would provide at least two keys. The room did not have a chair and thus we had to sit on a bed. Staff members were very friendly.

Hotel Victoria Seoul near MIA

The staff at night was very friendly and helpful, but the morning clerk was not really interested in being nice. The AC DID NOT WORK DURING THE DAY - it was VERY HOT, and when I told the clerk this she said she'd send someone up to fix it, and never did. My taxi driver, when he was bringing me there from the airport, kept saying I shouldn't have gotten a room there and that there are plenty more guesthouses that would have been better. Bed was HARD (might just be a Korean thing though). Mold in caulk of tub, tub leaked heavily unto floor. No free breakfast.
