Outstanding hotel. Very very nice but not fussy. The service was amazing - they went above and beyond every time we needed help. They helped us with Covid test site, with taxis, with recommendations, all were excellent. And the breakfast was fantastic.

My family and I stayed in two rooms and absolutely loved every part of this hotel. The location is great and is steps from a Seoul subway stop. The rooms were beautiful and luxurious and the service was absolutely top notch. On check-out the bellman even insisted on carrying our bags all the way down to the subway stop for us! One of the best hotels I've stayed at in my life. Don't miss the pool, the breakfast in the hotel restaurant or view from the executive lounge.

The hotel staff is super friendly. Nearly everyone speaks English . Everyone at the front desk spoke very good English. The gym was well equipped and they had an area for private exercise lessons. They also have a swimming pool and Spa. The restaurants were very pricey , but if you venture out into the neighborhood you can find food at very reasonable prices. There is a subway station practically on the property on the hotel which made traveling around Seoul very convenient . A bus station for Seoul Tour was just a few blocks away . The only draw back for this hotel was they do not have a Shuttle pick up from the Incheon Airport. Korean Air has a Limo(Bus) service from Incheon but this Hotel is not on their route. A regular taxi will cost you about $65.00 but the Hotel made arrangements for my pick up from the Airport to the Hotel, they sent a private car service, that cost $160.00. The Hotel is just across the street from a beautiful River Walk where you can hang out or jog.Overall I really enjoyed my stay at J W Marriott at Dongdaemun Square.
