Great Tourist-y Place To Stay

If you're looking to be right in the heart of Seoul, I suggest this hotel to stay at... however the only downside is that the traffic is quite heavy because it is downtown. I like that the hotel includes free bottles of water daily, and the staff is very nice, friendly, and helpful. I was disappointed that they only offer free wi-fi in the hotel lobby and not in the rooms. The hotel is located very closely to many eating places, a pharmacy, convenience stores, and shopping - especially to Myeongdong and Namdaemun Market.

what a steal

with less than 60$ a day, u get a fabulous room in the center of expensive Seoul. The room is spacious and the bath room has a huge tub. The only thing that prevent it from getting a 5 is it does not come with free wifi (it's 27$ a day).

A Good Tourist Hotel

This hotel is in a convenient location to Seoul's most popular shopping markets and sites... however, if you are looking to avoid heavy traffic (because it's downtown Seoul), you may want to stay in a different area. The hotel was conveniently located to some great restaurants, a sauna, and even a pharmacy. Everything else was great. The only downside was that free wi-fi was only available in the hotel lobby.

Well located, very friendly, good service

Room very roomy and comfortable. Staff extremely friendly and helpful in every respect. Only drawback was that the breakfast restaurant was situated on the 24th floor and taking the elevator was often long as it stopped at many floors along the way to pick up and drop off others. Also, the breakfast locale on the 24th floor was rather basic and cafeteria style, not at all up to standard of other comparable hotels.

Spacious and Clean

Spacious and clean room in a decent location. 5-10 min walk to City Hall station. Washer/dryer in room was extremely helpful. Wi/fi situation could be improved, as you have to pay for in room connectivity. Lobby level has a strong and free wi/fi connection, though clearly a bit less convenient. If you can get a good rate (around $120 / night or less), it's an excellent value relative to comparably priced options in Seoul. Taxis waiting outside of hotel always seemed to be the more expensive / international taxi service...so just be aware if you're going that route. Didn't try the restaurant upstairs, but after looking it over, I think you'll be better rewarded eating local options nearby or elsewhere. No complaints with staff, cleanliness, or otherwise.

I'd pass on the Korean Barbecue restaurant across the street on left side of exit. Convenient location and pretty good meats for grilling in front of you ...however, it was lacking in atmosphere and seemed overpriced.

Fabulous Korea stay!

Welcoming staff! Awesome concierge staff---helped us make air arrangements within Korea, gave clear directions to places, and helped us secure baseball tickets for game at Jamsil Stadium! Comfortable beds and spacious room! Great bathroom! Airport express bus dropped us at hotel and picked us up at hotel for return flight home. Very convenient! Loved that this hotel was walking distance to big markets. Ate out daily so we did not try the food at hotel.

Great stay

Was for a 2 stay, perfect location, clean room, just as advertised. No issues....except Clould have been a bit cheaper than the US $100/night for a 3 star hotel.
