Mate Hotel Seoul
Ranked #221 of 504 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed 9 April 2013

The location was a bit far from the action from Downtown Seoul but as you get to the subway which is quite of a ride and really need to understand so you will not be lost :) you will find Mate as a good and cozy place to stay in. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful in one instance i forgot to zap my burgers and they helped me once they saw the burgers were frozen. The room was big enough for me, my son and sister all in one room and 2 beds (1 family and 1 single bed). The jacuzzi was a sight especially for my son who was just ready to jump in once i was able to set it up for him. I also tried the steam sauna inside the shower room and it too was ok as an add value to the room. The two issues i had was the rolling curtain instead of an actual door going to the bathroom so make sure you know whos in the area. Second is the breakfast which is always the same throughout the week we stayed so hopefully theres more variety on the menu and good thing we didnt experience the full house during breakfast like what was mentioned on previous reviews of the hotel.

Good hotel located at east side of Seoul. Very clean and spacious rooms. Jacuzzi with TV in the bathroom, powerful jet shower and good warm seat toilet. Huge tv in the room, soft bed with towels. The towels are white with blackish spots nevertheless its clean. The restaurant serve decent breakfast but can be very crowded with huge groups of tourists as its relatively small in size. Close to CU convenience store. Friendly staff and helpful.

Excellent hotel for 3 star standard. The hotel is near the subway station and Gimpo airport. Free WiFi internet. The hotel room is big with big screen TV and big bathroom but uncomfortable for colleagues sharing the room together as there is no door for the bathroom. It is more like a lover hotel.
Very clean room and comfortable bedroom
Will stay here again if I come back to Seoul

Hotel is located about 300 meters from Kkachisan station (exit #3). I stayed 4 nights here with my friend. The room is tidy and clean. And the staffs speak enough english and very helpful. The bed is very comfortable with a huge television in front of the bed and the other television is in the bathroom. Complete with two desk computer with free wifi, coffee maker (hot/cold), mini freezer with free drinks and huge bottles of shampoo/conditioner/shower gel in the bathroom.

Hotel located at subway Kkatchisan (5mins walk). Do not book this hotel, if you dont have the hotel map and address in Korean language because most of the Korean taxi drivers do not speak foreign language.
Hotel is quite cozy and clean, looked like a "love" hotel. Room is a not bright enough. Three of us shared a deluxe room.
The only reason we booked this hotel because it's one of the cheapest hotel near Gimpo airport, we have to catch a very early flight at Gimpo Airport the next morning.

Room Tip: Booked via www.booking.com (map is wrong!)

We stayed 5 nights. Each flloor has diferent style. The rooms have not wardrobe, but hangers. Staff speak enough english to understand each other. Cleaness was superbe, and the beds extremely comfortable.
The hotel is located far from the city center, a good 20 minutes ride on the subway, but subway walking distance, arund 10 minutes. Plenty of cafés and korean restaurants around the hotel open until late.
Overall the hotel was ok. If you are the kind of traveller that leaves the hotel in the morning and come back by night, is a perfect value for money, but if you planed to come back to the hotel to relax and then go out again, is not convinient
