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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.

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.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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 Location

The location of this hotel is the best aspect of it. The subway is just a 1 minute walk out the front door. Very easy to get around Seoul from this hotel. The room was very large, about 100 square meters. The staff seemed less attentive to helping with issues that we needed but they were not completely useless.

Great location....I'd chose it again

Subway stop was very close so used it to get around the city. Subway was clean, fast, and comfortable. Picked up at hotel by bus companies for day tours. The airport limo bus stop was also in front of hotel costing about $9 per ride. Appreciated that this hotel was away from the hustle/bustle of large deluxe hotels or major shopping markets.
