Hotel MANU

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good design of the hotel, nice and helpful staff . The room is tidy. But I just live in a short time, hope I can get a longer time to enjoy more of the service of the hotel. The location is great as near the station

Large construction site nearby. Noisy at the very early morning. Apr 2, 2018 is very hot and air conditioner only provided warm air. So we woke up at 3 am. The front line told us to open the window and I saw the construction workers were still working. The bed is too soft and so I felt from the bed twice.

Me and my wife enjoyed our stay at Hotel Manu Seoul. The hotel itself was located in between Seoul Station and Hoehyeon Station, which made it very convenient for us. And it was within walking distances to Lotte Mart and Namdaemun Market, both roughly 5-10min walk away. The room was also very clean and made us felt like home.

I saw this hotel seven months ago when I visited Seoul for a cycling holiday and decided it would be a nice place to stay if the price was right on my next visit. Hotel Manu is a short walk from Hoehyeon and Seoul subway stations and the main Seoul railway station. This makes it incredibly easy to use the city's subway network to get around. And, it's easy to catch the Arex (railway express) from and to the airport without having to lug your bags a long way. There are airport buses, with stops at the doorstep of some hotels, but the journey times are a bit more variable because of the traffic. Arex is also a bit cheaper. Many of the city's attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. The Namdaemum market is practically next door and Myeondong a little further on. It's a nice 30-minute walk to the Contemporary History Museum, Gwanghwamun Square, and the Gyeongbokgung Palace. There is some food available at the hotel (pizza, fried chicken, and craft beer) but you'll find lots of stalls all over the place. I booked directly with the hotel on the website and was able to get a good deal. It's location make it very busy during the high season so you may want to book early. There is a big construction project next door now so a room facing the front may be quieter. I had one at the back and it wasn't a problem. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Hotel Manu location is ideal. It is located between Seoul station and Numdemum station and just 15 minutes walk to Myeongdong. The entrance to Hotel reception at Level is linked to skypark which another plus point for hotel guest.

Stayed here 1 night prior to our transfer to Busan via KTX, so this was a good location given proximity to the Seoul Station. The hotel is connected to the Seoullo 7017 on the 2nd floor and this leads you to the Seoul Station a short walk away. Rooms are small but standard with necessary amenities. We arrived late after midnight, front desk service was adequate though not exactly friendly (maybe it was late), there was no explanation of things like free Wi-Fi and response to a request for possibility of later check-out was additional payment required.

This is a great hotel for the price. It's quite comfortable even though the rooms are a bit small. The TV set is quite large though. The hotel is close to several pubs and restaurants (some of them in the same building). Very well situated with respect to public transportation (train and transfer to/from the airport). Ideal if you need to stay one night and get an early flight the day after. Very fast internet!

I booked this hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor and did not like the hotel. Staff were friendly however after arriving in my room I found the room really warm. The controls were in Korean so I asked the front desk for help. The man who came to the room said the air was centrally controlled and suggested I open the window. Had a hard time sleeping the 3 nights we were there because room was to warm. The hotel is located next to a large construction site and they start early in the morning. In the hotel elevator they suggest ear plugs. Beds are really bad you can feel the springs. Pillows were really flat. Only real good thing was water pressure for the shower. I would compare this hotel to a Motel 6 or Red Roof Inn in the States. I would never stay at this hotel again.

My family and I were looking for a quick last second weekend solution nearby Seoul station and were very pleased to have chosen this hotel! We were a little doubtful when looking at other online reviews and available photos Vs cost of accommodation for 2 nights but were happy to discover that Manu Hotel exceeded our expectations! Friendly staff, large and spotless rooms, great location a few minutes walk to Seoul Station and Myeongdong with lots of shopping and dining choices! We did not have breakfast in our rates and, although available for a very small extra, we decided not to take as it seemed a little poor. No parking is available at the hotel in case you are thinking of coming in by car. Would definitely consider coming back!!

Great place to stay & will highly recommend to my friend to stay. Hotel location is accessible from Seoul station . Seoul city Lotte martket and outlet is vey near the hotel & we spent every night shopping in the market where you can get everything.
