“Nice, clean, and friendly service”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed 11 nights at this hotel for a business/tourist trip. The room was very functional and comfortable (great wireless, good bed, awesome shower). Very friendly and helpful staff with decent English skills too! Hotel is within walking distance of hundreds of restaurants (best near the sunae station) and close to the subway that takes you anywhere in Seoul.

Not a bad hotel- fairly new. Very clean- not that this is a luxury in S.Korea. Rooms we a bit small and overall felt a little sterile. Decent spec laptop in the room and good internet. Overall a solid B

I stayed in Mate Hotel Bundang 2 nights. This time I was travelling alone on business, which is why I chose to stay in Bundang. If you are a tourist wanting to see Seoul then Bundang is not a right place to stay, as it is far from Seoul. For business trip or if you have reason to come to Bundang this is good hotel to stay.

Like said before, it is right next to AK Plaza so shopping, dining, supermarkets they are all basically next door.

Room had high speed wifi internet and good bed & armenities. Bathtub is separated by glass wall which can be plus or minus depending of your company ;) Anyway toilet seat and shower can be separeted by curtain, I liked this design.

Breakfast was excellent including several different kinds of foods. Car parking was free which was a plus for me.

The only thing I did not like was the price. I booked through hotels.com which most likely increased the price but still I think 155 000 won/night was a bit too much. Another strange thing was that the concierge woke me up by ringing my doorbell at 11:30 pm when I was already at sleep! And when I oppened the door he had small soap bottle on his hand and he asked to I have enough soap & shampoo... He apologized this incident next morning on breakfast, but still it felt very odd.

The room is clean, ours was noisy due to the nightclub next door and outside, but it was a Saturday night. The big turn off is the glass encased bathroom. If you have guests in the room, I would not suggest using the toilet, taking a bath, etc... because it is all glass encased. Some developer may have thought it was cool, but as a guest, I don't like it. They may be able to have a computer in the room, but they do not seem able to offer a baby bed. It was a very clean room, and the staff was amazingly friendly.

Room Tip: Ask to keep away from the side that has the night club entrance outside.

The Mate Hotel is a great place to stay if you're a single or couple. The rooms are small, very clean and well appointed. Free same day laundry is a definite plus. The staff were fast, friendly and always there to serve. The hotel is situated in the middle of Bundang and there are tons of shops, restaurants and coffee bars within blocks. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Good location, very close to AK Plaza / metro station / direct bus from airports. Staff were without any exception very welcoming and friendly - seemed genuinely delighted to help us.

The room was large and clean and freshly decorated. Indeed the whole hotel seems very new and spick - and - span.

One quirk is that to enter the toilet you have to step through the shower.

I don't think that many of the rooms have a view: certainly ours (and all on our side of the corridor) looked out directly ito an adjacent multi-storey car park.

Breakfast was a quite large selection of both Korean and Western style food. The coffee machine was a bit tricky to use. There was a chef available to cook omelewttes etc although we did not do that.

There are lots of shops, restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk: the hotel is very well situated.

Central Seoul is around 45 minutes or more away by metro.

If I am in the area again I will most definietly stay here.

The good:
Clean & spanking new, great bed, fantastic plumbing, fine internet connection, computer on tap, fine TV, good value, very helpful staff, 5 minutes walk to Seohyeon station and Bundang center, decent air conditioning (essential in summer).

The bad:
Walking through shower to get to the toilet (!?), breakfast, all in one remote only in Korean, all in one coffee mix.

The ugly:
Only one bed side light, short of mains connections for your stuff.
Beware the brand; some Mate hotels are much seedier than this one
