Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the Lotte City Hotel Mapo as part of a group of Asia Pacific visitors doing a study tour of Korea. This hotel was very central and well located as it was connected to a subway station, which made it very easy to go to almost every part of Seoul. The room was not very large, but was quite comfortable. Breakfast was good with a choice of local and western dishes.

The hotel located downtown. easy to go to tourist places. The room is cozy but very homely atmosphere! staff was super friendly, everything was very clean. If I have a chance definitely stay at Lotte city hotel mapo.

During a professionnal trip in China / Korea, staying few nights il Lotte City Hotel Mapo Very nice bedroom, clean, confortable and quiet. We had a nice diner with colleagues. Every one is lovely and ready to help.

The hotel is clean, has a decent swimming pool (heated water), a small fitness centre, and is well located, less than 20 minutes away from Yeouido, Hongdae, Itaewon, and Gwanghwamun. The food is okay, and the rooms are - as you'd expect in this part of Asia - pretty small. Staff are friendly.

The service in the hotel is excellent. There is a very nice sauna at hotel where you can relax a tired body after a long day of work, and plenty of nice places to eat nearby in Myeongdong. The room in itself is not very big. I also stayed at Hotel Shilla at Mapo-Gu. Same room, less bowing, and not the nice sauna, but half the price - if you want to indulge yourself choose Lotte City Hotel, if you want something slightly more cost effective go for Hotel Shilla.

Great location, above train and subway station and there are many stores, cafes, and a supermarket all within the building. Very convenient. Found taking the subway much easier than cab/Uber in Seoul. Really quiet, comfortable room with great rainfall shower. Indoor pool was great too after a long flight. Staff was helpful with making dinner reservations and with directions. Overall perfect-

Nice, clean hotel, well located and reasonably priced...good quality breakfast! Agree with previous comments, lack of choice ENG channels on TV is disappointing as is supply of iron and board...provided iron and board by housekeeping was simply inadequate!

Very good hotel, clean and high quality rooms, with all needed equipments. English TV which is something that sometimes missing in Korea. Fine Breakfast. Easy transportation to the airport. Well Packed sponge in the bathroom, very unique and efficient. Never saw it before.

we have stayed here two times now- in 2012 to adopt our first son, and again in February 2017 to meet our youngest son! The hotel is extremely clean, comfortable, and convenient! especially with young kids, it was nice to have the grocery and restaurants in the basement of the hotel, and not have to walk far for food. There is a Paris Baguette pastry shop, and Subway Sandwich shop, a waffle shop, plus several restaurants with tradtional Korean dishes. we also found a Starbucks and McDonalds within a couple blocks walk. The subway is right out of the door of the hotel as well, making it extremely easy to tour the city. The rooms are very comfortable-- we liked the rain shower, and the tub was nice for our young son. was always cleaned and restocked with towels, etc. Staff at the desk is very helpful and speaks English, which is nice for international travelers, like us. The indoor pool is very big and was nice and relaxing after a long day of touring the city. would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

Conveniently located next to an underground station, with easy access to buses also. Decent size room and the indoor swimming pool is a bonus. Facilities are clean and staff are friendly. Definitely recommended.
