Recent guest reviews

Close to main shopping area and confortable. Would recommend my friends

Very convenient location, subway station is just minutes away, meyongdong shopping area is also within minutes walking, excellent location!

Great for being flexible and convenience for the activity through day and night.

Perfect location for our sightseeing. Subway entrance at the front door. Large shopping district behind. Namsan tower in walking distance. Beautiful views. Quiet. Staff is very friendly. Room kept clean. WiFi worked well as did the TV. Room was great for us. Not extra spacious but we were only in the room for sleeping. Too many sights to see to sit in the room. Front desk was able to change USD to Korean Won.

Hotel is okay. The staff can speak English well. The room size is quite specious.

Good price, great room, great staff, did not eat food there, but a perfect location. Would highly recommend.

I needed to stay at a hotel for one night. The hotel was right on the main street and about 5-10 minutes away from Lotte Shopping.

Staffs are friendly and helpful.... Front desk speaks English and extremely helpful. Hotel is in perfect location. Subway is right in front of hotel, and airport bus stop is like 2 minutes away. Shops and restaurants are minutes away too.

This hotel has a great location and staff. When we arrived, the front desk upgraded our room, since we were staying 5 nights. The upgraded room was spacious, clean, but a bit tired in decor. The room was non-smoking, however, the hotel re-circulates air throughout, and the room always smelled of smoke. An electric heater was provided because central air con was not sufficiently heating the room. Overall, a good value, but I would not stay there again because of the smoke and room heating issues.

Sejong has one of the best customer service and friendly staff. Where ever you want to go, they can look it up for you and tell you how to get there. Or they can write down the address in Korean for you to give to cab driver. The cabs are also right in front of hotel. Also, this hotel's location is so convenient. It is right in front of Myeong-dong subway exit 10. It is also like 2 minute walk from airport bus to Incheon and to Gimpo. It is surrounded by restaurants and shops. And this time we were lucky...we even have a close up view of Seoul Tower in front of our room's window.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sejong Hotel. The lobby was pretty as compared to others that we had stayed at and they upgraded our room to a beautiful view of the Namsan Tower. Free Wi-Fi was a plus and it's not far from airport limosine bus stop... last year it was in front of the Sejong Hotel but it moved two short blocks down. The subway is just outside the door and cabs are always passing by so you would not have a problem waving down the cab if needed to. The hotel is also very convenient to all the Korean cosmetic shopping, Korean cuisine, and then some.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location is perfect for visiting Seoul's major atracctions, and the subway and airport limos are half a block away. The room is somewhat small but comfortable. Heating, internet and cable tv work very well and the staff is very proffesinal and ready to help. I will stay here again if I return to Seoul.
