Recent guest reviews

I have sent request to hotel for room in new decoration for my stay of six nights before I check in. However, the room in the first few nights is old and dark. Finally, in the last two nights, I request at the front desk, they actually can arrange me a room in new decoration.

This hotel is located at the heart of Seoul, close to city hall, financial centre, shopping centre and interesting places. You can visit those areas by walk. This hotel is good for business or alone traveller as the room is just enough for 1 or 2 mediun guys. It is not suit for family. Toilet and bed are too closed and not separated properly. Breakfast is not to variety but just enough and definately have a Kim-chi and noodle. Room is clean and no noisy at night. Good and safe to stay. Bus station to airport is just behind the hotel.

It is well located in city center adjacent two subway lines and major attractions. There are a lots of choices of restaurant around and it gives you variety of choices for foods and it is kind of pleasure. You can anywhere by metro lines in seoul and all provinces connected so many subway lines. I would recommend this hotel to stay and you do not need any car to drive in this crowded city.

Stayed here for 6 nights. Very happy customer. Front desk. Very helpful and spoke English. Helped me buy a sim card and mailed letters for me. Room was good size. No windows which I expected so it's ok. Bath but a bit small. Good hot shower. High tech toilet. Usual room amenities. Cleaned daily. Good selection on the TV. I was happy with my stay. Location. City hall metro on line 1/2. Exit 4. Walk straight ahead for a couple of mins and you'll see it on your right. Can walk to myeongdong shopping street. Walk to the palace. Walk to namsam park. It's a good location tbh

I stayed at this hotel back in November of 2016. I used my best western points for a free stay and while it was a good experience there were some things I would change. We had one of the rooms without a window which was fine with us as we were only using it as a place to sleep. The hotel was very clean and there were no issues with cleanliness. Although the room that we had was a little dated and looked to have water damage or mould on the ceiling. I feel that this should have been fixed. The front desk staff spoke English very well and had no problem recommending a restaurant to us. Overall the stay was good and I would say it is a solid 3 star hotel. The location can't be beat!

The rooms are nice and the beds and bathrooms are good. The hotel staff is very helpful. The hotel is in a quiet street at walking distance from metro stations, restaurants, shops, etc. and several nice attractions.

We were stayed for 4 nights here. After we reviewed the hotel location then we selected this hotel Our together with flight ticket via AirAsiaGo. As the hotel located in the convenient area, it can easily take KAL Limousune Bus No. 6701 from Incheon Airport. The bus will stop in front of Koreana Hotel, opposie with New Seoul Hotel and it only 2 minutes walk to City Hall MRT Station Exit #4. There are lots of grocery shops, 7-11, restaurants, coffee shops as well as government center nearby. We booked a standard room with 1 double bed and window. The room is very funcional, completely amenity especially bathroom we never experienced the hotel providing huge shampoo, condition and body eash bottle like this hotel. Skin lotion is good smell. However, there is no seperate bathroom it may difficult to the a shower in the bathtup. Another point is bed size bit small for 2 person if you are western guy please be aware, recommend you to book king size or 2 single bed. The receptionist is very nice and helpful. They prompt to assist us every when we need help. Due to different electronic conection, you cam borrow the adapter at reception desk by deposit cash 10,000 KRW. There are fews restaurant in the hotel but we never tried it as we much enjoyed local Korean restaurants around. This hotel is highly recommended for your next destination at Seoul.

Good hotel. Clean and good location. Close to transport links. Airport bus stops almost at the front door of the hotel it's going there and from hotel back to airport. Subway is close too. Less than 8 minutes walk. Staff were very friendly and helpful with great English !

Stayed there for three days from 2/8 till 5/8. Location of the hotel is great as it has everything nearby ie. Metro station, city hall, Central Park, palace etc. Indian travellers PL note there is a good restaurant by the name of Durga in the next building on 4th floor. Rooms are ok but no good view. Also one night we stayed in windowless room which is quite bad as room is small and the double bed is also small for two adults. Breakfast is not included & I paid 10000won for breakfast one day but the food is very bad with no options. I found better hotel for my remaining days at a much lesser price. Can avoid.

Just spent 4 nights here, rooms are clean, air con is great and service is excellent, they replied really quickly to any queries we had before we arrived. The best thing is the location, you can easily walk to the palace and other sights. The subway is 5 mins away as is the city hall area where we watched some free open air concerts. Walking north you get to the river where you will see the locals paddling when it's hot and on Saturday evening they shut the side road to part of the river and had stalls and food stands. Just north of the river running parallel you will find a long street full of lights noise and good food. Insadong is just a bit further north. Also near the hotel itself are a few cafes for breakfast we liked Mammas. If you walk passed the "Angel in us" coffee house from the hotel, you will quickly finds lots of local places to eat, everything from Chon (local savoury pancakes) to octopus skewers and more.
