Called hotel at 9 P.M to coordinate a airport shuttle. The hotel staff said that all the drivers had gone home for the evening and that I should have called a few days earlier to schedule the pickup (what?!). Note: I called 3 different hotels after learning a needed to find a different hotel and all of them could send a shuttle. On top of that they recommended that I should take a taxi for the 30 min. drive from the airport. I asked if this would be reimbursed by the hotel and they quickly replied no. I told them that I would like to cancel my reservation and asked for a refund...since I did not have a way to get to their hotel. I was told be the hotel to get in touch with Agoda. Agoda then blew me off and basically said they needed to get with the hotel and get back with me. They never did! I called them back and they were giving me the run around. Agoda was ZERO help and I can tell they are out to take your money along with the hotel. I will never use them again!!
Close to airport with free shuttle (runs only every 30 minutes). The rooms are typical of a mid-market hotel, pretty cheap furniture, dark bathroom, not clean enough, .... The bed is typical Asia very firm, though they provide both soft and hard pillows. I was on low floor and could hear the planes as well as noise in the hall easily. The breakfast, however, was very good with many choices. Be careful of reserving "traditional" room: this is Korean style with no chairs or desk.
DO.NOT.STAY.HERE Listen, I've been to my fair share of hotels/motels at every price point and that includes many Best Western Hotel experiences. Not only is the 'Royal' in the hotel name deceiving, it's not even up to the regular standards of this brand. If you told me this was a USD $20 box with nothing but a bed then I'd say it's fine. But there's some minimal expectations that come at approx. USD $100 per night. First, lets talk housekeeping or the lack thereof. I stayed 10 nights and only had my room cleaned 2 times!! Before you ask, OF COURSE I went to front desk to complain literally EVERY SINGLE DAY!! The 'make up room' sign and digital buttons (they had both) did nothing. I literally had a pile of towels as high as my washroom sink from going to front desk and getting fresh towels so many times. Even crazier, with my door sign saying 'do not disturb' the cleaning lady actually came into the room while I was undressed (1 of the 2 times she came to clean). Upkeep was poor. My desk was going to fall apart any moment and internet security was so bad my business laptop wouldn't connect due to unsecured internet. Korea arguably has the world's best internet so this was odd. Chair was falling apart (see pic). The in-room safe (see pic) is basically useless. It's a metal box that is NOT attached to anything so you can literally pick it up and walk away with it. The front desk staff either don't care or have heard so many complaints they can't be bothered anymore. But don't expect them to watch out for thieves or actually tell housekeeping to do their jobs. 10 other colleagues stayed here during the same time period and had the same terrible experience. We won't be back.
Stayed one night. Very clean. Nice hotel, good breakfast, and comfy. Seems new. Clean and modern decor. Lovely room, bathroom, and huge closet space! Would definitely stay here again! Just wished their staff knew some english!
Visited the hotel with friends for an evening out. Very ambient as you enter with very professional and welcoming staff. Sure was a great place to stay. The drinks section is also well stocked for any type of engagement
We stayed here on a stop over, hotel was lovely, service was wonderful. It is a little way out and shuttle bus did not go at weekend. Food was excellent and staff very attentive. Rooms very comfortable.
Stayed here as a stop over travelling back from Chuuk to the UK. It had a free shuttle bus from the airport. I'd slept through my flight meal so was hungry. A little noodle restaurant was open next door. Room service did finish at 11pm so if I hadn't eaten I would have stayed hungry. However breakfast would have made up for it! Had possibly the best breakfast I've ever had here. Hot foods, fruit, Aloe Vera juice, coffee, everything. The spicy chicken wings were delicious and the beans had chick peas in them which were also delicious. The toilet had a control panel!! Had a great nights sleep, I would recommend staying here.
Stayed at the Incheon Royal Hotel overnight as we were flying out of ICN the next day. The hotel is located in an outer part of town but accessible via subway. The nearby subway exits (Ganseogogeri) don't have elevators or escalators, so watch out if you have luggage. We stayed in room 720 which faces the back of the hotel. The room has two queen beds so can sleep four people, but there's very little space left over so you'll be stepping over each other to move around. It's still nice to be able to sleep a family as many rooms in Seoul will not accommodate 4 people. The air-conditioning in the room is very weak and struggled to cool the room below 25 °C, despite setting the thermostat lower and setting the fan to maximum. There is a lack of water pressure so the shower is does not work well. The room smelled of smoke and an air freshener was unable to mask the scent. Perhaps the smell of smoke was from a previous occupant or from the neighbouring service corridor. Two bottles of complimentary water was a nice touch, however was not enough for the four of us. There is a small convenience store nearby, and a bakery across the busy road in front of the hotel.
The room I had on the 9th floor was wonderful especially for the price that I paid for it. Was spacious and there was a good bit of furniture in the room making it easy to sit on the couch or desk. The bed was firm which isn't my preference but worked. Had a great fitness area that was great for the one night I was there. Was very impressed with the location by the subway and the service during checkin. I showed up thirty minutes before checkin but that was not an issue as they had my room paperwork already printed and only had to sign it and get my key. Was shocked to read some other reviews and it may be that it had been renovated recently or that the 9th floor was a better one. I would consider it a four star hotel.
Pro You will be able to take long hot shower. The hotel is next to the metro. Room is old but clean. Con The room is tiny w/ alot of furniture. The room thermostat doesn't work. HARD Bed, Few electrical outlets
