GREAT place to stay in Seoul

Our room was more like a studio apartment than a hotel room - which was wonderful as we were there for 2 weeks. We had 2 oversized twin beds (I believe there is a single full bed option if you're traveling as a couple), a desk, flat-screen TV, kitchen with full stovetop, microwave, teapot, toaster, plates & utensils, and fridge. There was a washer/dryer in the kitchen as well, and a large shower in the bathroom. There was no tub, just a shower. The room was air conditioned, clean, and had lots of storage for our clothes and luggage. There was also free high-speed internet access via firewire cable. We purchased a multi-country outlet adaptor from amazon before our trip which was essential for plugging in our laptop. It was super cheap and worked great: http://www.amazon.com/Insten-Universal-Travel-Charger-Adapter/dp/B001MGUB9Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1312944344&sr=8-2 The staff at the front desk all speak English and were very helpful in the instances we needed a little extra help with directions to our various excursions, and arranging the occasional taxi. The bus from Incheon airport stops right in front of the hotel - we got curbside service to/from the airport 10000 wan (approx $10) each way. So easy! There is a 7-11 located inside the hotel as well as an Outback steak house (WAY overpriced and a bit of a weird menu) and a small Korean eatery. The subway entrance is less than half a block away from the hotel. We purchased a popout map before our trip and it was ESSENTIAL - it has a map of the major metropolitan area and a subway map - all in a map that collapses to pocket size. http://www.amazon.com/Seoul-popoutmap-Popout-Map/dp/1845876288/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1312944921&sr=1-1 I would absolutely stay at the Vabien II again.

The subway entrance is less than half a block from the hotel entrance. We rode the subway EVERYWHERE in Seoul and beyond - and it was always easy, clean, inexpensive, and convenient. We recommend purchasing a subway map from amazon in English prior to your trip - makes navigating the subway and Seoul very simple. Purchase a travel card from one of the kiosks and reload as needed.

Good value, excellent location

Pros - Under 1-min walk from Seodaemun subway (Line #5) station (exit #6); Incheon Airport limousine bus #6005 makes a stop in front; lots of eateries nearby, including Outback Steakhouse and a Korean restaurant in the building; 7-11 on 1st floor; in-room safe & microwave; plates & bowls (but no utensils) 15-20 min walk to City Hall, Cheonggyecheon, Lotte Hotel/Department Store, Namdaemun, etc. Cons - No WiFi in the room (WiFi only in the lobby area); stained towels; dirty/stained carpets and walls OVERALL, good value and I would stay here again (although no WiFi in the room is a border-line deal-killer for me). However, Vabien Suites II is definitely a level below Fraser Place (which I would give 4 stars but costs $30-50 more per night).

Take Incheon Airport Limousine Bus #6005 to Vabien Suites II (runs every 30 minutes and takes about an hour). When coming from Incheon Airport, you're dropped off on the opposite side of subway, and you must cross street twice (not fun if you have heavy luggage). Going to the Incheon Airport, the bus stops right in front of the hotel.

Convenient hotel needs updating

Room was clean, but part of ceiling was hanging down and wooden floor was stained. Kitchenette was well stocked, but did not have coffee maker (only hot water pot). Location was good - Number 5 subway line is half a block away and airport bus stops at front door. Staff is friendly and helpful.

a huge modern apartment

We did not expect it to be so big! Plenty of room for the family of 4. The A/C and water heater controls were not the type we are used to in the West so it took us some try and error to figure. Pretty clean. Locations is within a pleasant walk to City Hall.

Great location

Overall we liked the hotel. The Vabien II really needs to replace or at least clean the carpets in its hallways. They are dirty and unsightly. Adding some chairs in the lobby would also be a good idea. Kitchenette area is very nice. Convenient to all Seoul sights.

Beautiful, modern hotel

This hotel is designed as a long-stay hotel, but we found it at a great rate. Room was modern and clean, had almost a whole kitchen, including dishwasher, and very modern bathroom. Beautiful view from upper floors. Airport limousine picks up every hour right in front.

Very much value for money

Super near subway Station. Room is relatively cheap and big compared to other service apartments. Washing machine, dish washer and cooking stuff are all in! Will come back for a short term or long term stay next time! Only minus point is the freidliness of the frontdesk and inconvenient to check in on 3rd floor.

Convenient to Subway

The hotel is literally steps away from the subway which was awesome! Other than that, it's not really a hotel, more like an extended stay facility. The room had a mini kitchen and washing machine which was great. The building contains a hot-pot eatery, steakhouse, Outback Steakhouse, and 7-11. Not a lot to do in the area but really good for getting to the subway to go to all the different attractions and shopping. The staff was nice but not overly helpful, it's kind of a do-it-yourself kind of place.

There is a $10 bus that takes you to Incheon Airport. It may seem like it's a bother and a taxi would be faster but I got to the airport quickly because the bus has it's own lane. Not a lot of people got on, there were just three of us, so it was really quick.
