“Best location ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

I`ve stayed here for a couple of days and was impressed by the location and service of the hotel. There are many convenient ways to go to the incheon airport. I took the 6015 to come to the hotel. this one was cheaper than the kal limo. it took approximately one hour and it stops right in front of the hotel. Also, the subway was connected to the basement of the hotel building and it had many lines that went through the center and other hot places.
Other than this there was many more. The staffs were very thoughtful. They cared about us throughout our whole stay.
One of the things i liked the most was the swimming pool on the 4th floor. The temperature was just right and it was quiet as if it was my private pool (not many people were using it). It was a very nice hotel that made my travel perfect. I would like to comeback if i have a chance to visit Korea next time.

I stayed 1 night on last monday with my husband and child.
When I checked in, I didn't know why they set my room the smoking, and I requested to staff to change my room .
Staff prepared for us non smoking room with appologize,
Staffs were very kind with a big smile every time, and took care of my little child very much, I was so touched.
Staffs are professional!
Room also was very nice and enough for us(3 people), breakfast was excellent as well.
If I have a plan to visit seoul next time, I'm sure I'll defenitely choose this hotel.

I just checked out and waiting my flight in the Incheon airport.
This is first time to visit Korea, I`m very satisfied with my whole trip and love Korea!
Lovely&interesting country.
Also lotte city hotel mapo was the best place for my trip.
Very polite and helpful staffs can speak english well, perfect location and clean room.
Definitely close to 5star hotel!
I recommend someone don`t need bell man or room service.
Supermaket downstairs is really convenience.(quite big and you can get every kind of stuff there. just try cupnoodles)
I hope to come back there again!

Tip1: I stayed roadside room(857) with good view but it can be noisy to someone, I was good.

Tip2: if you go to supermarket around 10pm, you can get some food like sushi, law fish, gimbab and chicken at discounted rate.(close at 11pm)

I visit to Korea 5,6times in a year for my business and this is first time to stay there.
I Stayed for 3nights last week. It was 4th floor with gym. Frankly speaking I wasn't prefere Lotte hotels brand cuz too expensive even business hotel levels,that's why I didn't try to stay there.
But it was great stay!
Most of staffs spoke Japanese fluently and English was excellent as well.
Staffs of some hotels I stayed,couldn't speak English and Japanese well also they didn't have smile on their face and try to take care of their guests.So I thought every Korean business hotel is not kind cuz it is low grade and low rate,but Lotte city hotel mapo was different!
The rate is a little bit higher than others(but it is still cheaper than deluxe hotels) but you can have great service and very good condition facilities.
I just asked to one of staffs about tour spot,she was really trying to help me,I could feel her kindness,it was a small thing but she was a professional!
I definitely will stay there again and recommend lotte city mapo everyone.
(Tip "Gym is free and shoes,socks are also free)

I used this hotel to break a journey between Australia and Europe. It was excellent for this purpose. Despite the fact that the hotel is located on a busy road, my room was quiet, and just right for a short business stay. As a Western visitor, I could have done with some English-language entertainment channels on television (and also the BBC world service in addition to US cable news); in addition, there was a -to me- baffling automated bidet feature on the WC. All told, however, it was really good; a short phone call to Australia was also reasonably priced. What particularly impressed me, was that a doorman assisted me - when it has started to drizzle with rain - be carrying a piece of my luggage to the nearby airport bus service, so that we could each use one of the hotel's umbrellas. The ease of subway access is good, and there is a mall under the hotel, although this did not look particularly interesting. One additional tip: I was able to access the hotel using the 'Seoul Stopover' service, which packaged a choice of this and other hotels, together with transport to and from the airport by coach: I am looking forward to staying again on my return journey

Love this business modern hotel. Though it costs slightly pricey compare to other hotels and guesthouses but it was really worth the stay.

First, the location is good, the subway is just below the hotel. it is near to Seoul Station where you can transit or shop at the Lotte outlets. I did all my last minute shopping there and it was convenience to get back to the hotel.

Second, there are many shops within the hotel building. Breakfast can be at the Paris Baguette at the basement or even a dinner at one of the restaurants. Plus, I like having supermarket just within reach - same at the basement.

Third, the room is huge with spaces for your many luaggages. Bed is extremely comfy and room was kept warm when it was really cold outside during the early April. Love the bathroom with the ceiling mount rain showerhead, toilet bowl that you can adjust the temperature to warm your butt. There is a bathtub too if you want to soak yourself after a long day of traveling. Will definitely go back again when I'm back in Seoul.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Loved they had laundry, a decent fitness area and a real lap pool. Small-ish rooms but everything you need and a great breakfast! Found it easy to commute around from there. The hotel is right above the subway station (exit #2) making it easy to take the train from the airport. That is one of its best features!
