Hotel MANU3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had a great time going around Seoul due to the close proximity of the hotel to the places we want to visit and see. It was easy access. We wanted to go back again and stay in the same hotel, Hotel Manu.
This hotel was in an extremely convenient location. It was gorgeous and very modern. It was super pleasant and we wanted to stay here longer!
First of all, I think this hotel is more like 3 stars or 3.5 stars as far as the building overall, furniture and amenities. The location is pretty good, right between Seoul station and Hoehyeon station on subway Line 4, only one stop away from Myeong-dong and 3 stops from Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. And you can walk to Namdaemun market too. If you're transiting from/to ICN airport and plan to take airport limo bus, the hotel staff will tell you to take bus # 6001. Even you will get to the same proximity of the hotel, it is better to take 6015. The reason is 6015 is cheaper for 10k won(one-way), while 6001 is 14k won(one-way). The other thing is when you're leaving for ICN airport, 6015 stop at YTN building right at seoul station line 4 exit 3. There are elevators on both sides of the street across Namdaemun-ro, i.e. exit 3 and exit 4. If you're like us having 4 pieces of luggage and 2 young kids, these elev help big time. On the 6001, you need to walk down/up stairs to cross the street or you need to walk much further down the loop to avoid the stairs. Unfortunately on the arrival airport bus stops(different than the departure bus stops), for both 6015 and 6001, they are on the other side of seoul station, I found no elevator nearby, you need to walk down/up stairs to cross the street. I found it to be an issue with elderly or many pieces of bags and with kids, especially after many hrs of flight in an unfamiliarized environment. If you're taking subway line4 to/from this hotel, as another reviewer had mentioned, Hoehyeon station exit 5 is a better stop, unless you need to switch to other lines at seoul station which you might want to walk to/from seoul station. Especially if you are arriving with many pieces of luggage, Hoehyeon station exit 5 will lead you to a lightly inclined downward road directly 3 mins away from the hotel. Couple issues we noticed, for some reason, the bathtub curtain is mounted too inward that an average size adult will have the shoulder/arm constantly touching the curtain while taking showers. The other thing is they dont provide wash-size towel. They provide bath-size and hand-size towels(USA sizing terms). It is a good value hotel, we booked the corner suite which is what we got, good size room with spaces to put our luggage and stuff. Bathroom is clean, toilet is great and water pressure is superb. Good location close to subway stations and within walking distance to 24-hr stores, restaurants, coffee shop and namdaemun market. Recommended.
Free upgrade. Free WiFi. Walking distance to Seoul station and namdaemun market. Short subway ride to most major attractions.
i liked the location and staff were very helpful and freindly i also liked the toilet seeting but the rooms are too small the irroning is abit far from the room i hoped the guest can iron in the same room in the future all the accomodation in the room are fine
We stayed here for 4 nights and booked a triple bed room. Room was very spacious, modern looking and very clean. The location was very convenient near the Seoul station. I would recommend this place to others and would stay here again if I visit Korea. The only thing is everything around the area closes at 9:00pm and not much of a night life.
