Business Trip

Aside from chronic traffic congestion in the area around the hotel and lack of direct shuttle to the airport, no significant shortcomings. Pleasant and well-trained staff, clean and modern environment with many shopping and food options nearby. Prices on the expensive side but in line with comparable hotels in Seoul.
