Decorated in traditional Korean style with a splash of Western modern influence, the 303 rooms here are good for any traveller seeking mid-range lodging. The location is a primary reason to choose this hotel as it is within a stone's throw of City Hall and major metro and rail stations. There are ancient palaces, financial institutions, business and shopping streets nearby, so whether on business or visiting for tourism, the city is literally at one's fingertips. The rooms on the higher floors have astonishing views of busy, bright, vibrant downtown Seoul.

Nice room with great view

I got a corner single. The triangle shape was interesting and I had a great view of the city. I even could see the Seoul tower with beautiful light up! The location was excellent! You can walk to the center of Myongdong in five minutes or so, and Lotte hotel was next door.

Grand Dame in a Great Location

This hotel is a grand, but dated property. That said, the location is excellent, with easy access to the main palaces and central Seoul. Staff were helpful. We loved the built in stereo even though it is set to only four radio stations. We slept really well here thanks to a comfortable bed.

Essentialy missing in the room

Essentialy missing in the room is free water supply and free internet. 19.000 won per day is crazy and outdated. There was no connection with the price I had to pay and the hotelclub reservation

This hotel is certainly not a

This hotel is certainly not a 4-star hotel. At best it is a 2-star hotel. There are basically no amenities in the room. There were two small bottles in the bathroom which I thought were shampoo and conditioner. In fact, it was some kind of lotion. There wasn't anything written in English. When I called and asked for shampoo, they said none was available and that I had to pay for it. What kind of hotel asks its guests to pay for shampoo? All the other hotels that I have stayed in Korea have provided shampoo, conditioner, and more. The President Hotel Seoul should be taken off the Recommended Hotel program immmediately. The only thing good about it is its proximity to the Lotte and Namdaemun shopping areas.

素敵なホテル

一人旅で3日間滞在しました。ロッテホテルの隣、地下鉄1号線、3号線の駅から近く、明洞にも歩いて5分程度と最高の立地です。部屋は一人には十分過ぎる広さで、テレビも冷蔵庫も大きめなものが備え付けられていたり、暖房の調節が細かく変えられるようになっていて快適に過ごせました。 110vのプラグもあり助かりましたが、ついていたのがバスルームだったのが唯一不便に感じました。

次回も利用したいです

3度目のソウルで、今回は観光目的の滞在でした。このホテルを選んだのは、近辺の地理を知っていたこと、あたりのホテルの中では価格がリーズナブルだったことからです。空港バスの停留所が近いことも理由です。 ロビーなどは、有名ホテルのようなゴージャスさはありませんが、フロントの方や案内の方は親切で手早く、気持ちよかったです。バスタブもあり、蛇口の湯量、水量もたっぷりです。 しかし、四基あるエレベーターが一基は従業員用と書かれており、残り3基が客用なのですが、三基とも上まで行ってしまっていると下で長く待た ばならないし、速度も遅い。急いでいるときは最悪。また、壁が薄いのか、夜室内で隣の物音が気になることがありましたが、許容範囲内です。

明洞の方へ行けば、日本人観光客をターゲットにしたたくさんの食事処があります。日本語メニューがあったりして便利ですが、日本人のみを対象としている店は、割高でいい点もない店があるので気をつけた方がよいです。このあたりはどの店でも日本語併記するなどの対応をしているので、地元の人も入っているような店を選ぶことをおすすめします。

今回は特に悪い

このホテルは何度も利用していますが、今回は、特にひどかった。 室内に天井および冷蔵庫の上にあるライトだ。通常は人の動きに反応し、必要な時に点灯するはずだ。しかし今回宿泊した部屋のライトは、夜中でも約15分ごとに自動的に点灯し、しばらくすると消える。そのためよく眠れなかった。3日目にハウスキーピングに連絡したが、電球を外すだけで、これだと、必要な時にも点灯しなくなる。 ハウスキーピングは、この電灯はセンシティブだと言っていたが、over sensitiveだ。 このほか、バスの湯が温かくならず、またもハウスキーピングを呼ぶ羽目になった。
