“One of your best experiences in Seoul”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

I was on the 6th floor and had perfect (the usual Korean speed) wi-fi internet; in fact there were no wires in my room.

The staff was very friendly and more than willing to help me get to my destinations in Seoul using public transportation (usually through subway line 9 at Gayang station, which is the closest to the hotel) during my stay, no matter where I wanted to go. The front staff is generally multilingual (as this hotel is visited by foreigners more than Koreans), and will provide you with whatever you need.

I stayed in the one-bed room, and while the bed was a little on the "hard" side, it was comfortable enough and provided good rest (but I was also exhausted from everything else related to travel so...). It can get pretty loud until... 9PM (because there is a bar lounge on the 8th floor). After 9PM, it's DEAD quiet (although the hotel is in a busy street corner of the city). I found it amazing that it could be this quiet in a city hotel.

The food served at the restaurant is very clean, tasteful, and reasonably priced for a hotel. They also provide discounts on the food served at the hotel restaurant (on the first floor usually during lunch time) for those staying at the hotel.

The water in the refrigerator is complementary, and you do not get charged for drinking the water in the hotel room, a very nice change.

I highly recommend this place, and will be staying here again when I come back to Seoul!

Wifi only available on 1st floor. Wired internet in the room. Everything was as one can expect in a good hotel. Breakfast was not "american" breakfast that I have had at other hotels in Korea, but there are many places to walk to, including a starbucks within 3-5 minute walk.

The people were nice.....the room was very small-hallway and room had shabby (dirty) carpet. Bathroom was clean and had decent shower and granite counter. We chose this location because it was the best hotel in the area. We would probably not stay here again.

At first glance this seemed a good idea for a cheap night in Seoul. But the htel was hard to find , the breakfast was poor. The best feature was the sushi reasturant opposite.

Reviewed 30 December 2009

Seven River West Hotel (apparently in the process of changing its name to Hotel Nostalgia) is a comfortable and attractive hotel about a 20 min. drive from Gimpo Airport. The hotel runs a free shuttle to Gimpo three times a day. The hotel is a 10 min. walk from the subway station.
The rooms have free WiFi, refrigerator, hair dryer. Wish they would have had an electric kettle so we could have made hot tea or coffee in the room. There's a beautiful bar on the top (8th) floor. The staff at the front desk speak English and are very courteous. We stayed at this hotel about seven days, left the country for a few days, and returned for another three days at the hotel. The hotel was most willing to store our excess luggage for us between stays. There are quite a few small restaurants in the area; street vendors sell food in plastic-walled stalls as late as 11 p.m., and that's on cold nights in December!
