Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chose this hotel for 2 reasons, its proximity to people I was meeting up with, and its proximity to the airport train. For both of these reasons this hotel was perfect.

The hotel staff were nice and kind (and seemed very young). The room was heated nicely with underfloor heating. It has a typically Asian "wet bathroom" with the sink in the bedroom. This works nicely. The double bed was comfortable, and there was a large TV in the room. I had a slightly larger room, as it was one of the only ones left that night. I would recommend that, as it gave space for suitcases. The larger room also had two very large windows, which meant I had some great city views.

Overnight I did make the mistake of leaving my suitcase open on the floor. With the underfloor heating on, this made my case Very warm in the morning. It was nice to have warm clothes, but a warm computer? Yikes.

I was woken up in the night by a toilet flushing in the room beside mine - and then the rather loud 3 AM sex next door kept me from falling back to sleep. So, the walls are not that thick.

Other than that, it was a nice hotel, and a good location. I felt safe, and the convenience of it outweighed the negatives.

Very good room design, most reviews say that it's too small.
But for me and my friend it was pretty much ok space.
Staff was very polite and helpful. Thre safety box was provided at the reception.
You get daily tea, coffee, water bottles and there was also drinking water on the floor.
Nice city view from the room.
Location is great 5min walk to subway 3min to the restaurants and nightlife street. Money exchange across the road.
One thing that was not good is the smoking smell occurring sometimes, I suppose it's through the air conditioner when the neighbors were smoking. Otherwise all windows and doors were closed.

This hotel is located at the very heart of hongdae area. The room is very clean and quite private, since there are only 6 rooms on every floor. Bathroom amenities & minibar are refilled everyday. And they provide a water dispenser on every floor! So you won't have to worry about running out of water in the middle of the night. Only. 5 minutes walk to the subway station. And 5 minutes walk to the bus station which will take you straight to the airport. You can find pretty much anything in the neighborhood: food, convenience shops, cafe, bakeries, fashion, entertainment, nightlife, you name it! It was worth every penny you spent for the night. I will definitely come back to stay at this hotel!

I found The Ore by reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Those reviews were spot on. The Ore is in a great location from a couple of perspectives. It's very close to the Subway line that brings you from the Airport to downtown Seoul. But even more importantly, it's in the heart of the very vibrant Hongik University neighborhood where you can find great restaurants, shops and just a generally fun vibe.

Also, the staff was nice and very responsive. Shout out to Mr. Ko!!! I was having a credit card problem when I arrived in Seoul. The staff was very patient with me and helped me get in contact with the right folks to get the issue resolved.

I had a beautiful corner room with floor to ceiling windows with a view of the Hongik area. The bathroom was a tad small, but since I was traveling solo it was not an issue for me.

Hotel The Ore is definitely the place to stay at. It is close to all of the nightlife in Hongdae, yest nicely tucked out if the way just enough to not hear all of the noise. There is a 7/11 fairly close downstairs, as well as a Starbucks. Directly behind the hotel is a Italian/fusion restaurant that is AMAZING! Pictures of the nightlife on Hongdae Street. I went for Indie bands. Will definitely stay again.

Small hotel in a very busy part of Seoul, next to Universities. Good access to public transportation (subway and buses). Rooms are small but well organized and clean.
Main complaint was getting the smoke from the smoking room below ours in our room through the bathroom ventilation system. Hotel was being renovated during our stay so there was no restaurant (no breakfast) which was not clear when we made the reservation but there were many cafes nearby, so it wasn’t too difficult to find breakfast. These are the reasons I only give it 3 over 5.
Otherwise it was good value for money.

For my first time in this part of the town, I'm lucky to find the Ore hotel.
It's not so easy to find the lobby but I was tired.
They said it's a 9m~ s room but it's more than 12 and it's suits very well.
The decoration is rather raw and vintage and I like it very much.

A friend recommended this hotel, so I booked without much thought. But I have to thank him for the great suggestion. It is next to the Hongik University stations. There's a direct line from the Incheon Airport, and the green line, too. That makes this very convenient. It's a couple of blocks from the station. Take Gate #1 and it's fast to get there. The rooms are very pleasant and modern. Quite small, but that's to be expected. I would not recommend this place for handicapped people or those who have issues with stairs. Overall it's a nice spot. Hope this was helpful.

I checked in quite late without a reservation, but the staff were very accommodating. They took the time to show me how to connect to wifi and use the remote to control the TV and air conditioning. They spoke English fluently and were quick to notice any need and offer help.
