“an budget hotel with a not-so-cheap experience”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

the location is convenient.(close to dongdaemun but without the noise at night)

the price is cheap(a 3-night stay cost less than 200USD - with membership card)

the room is a bit small but well-equipped(love their PJs...so comfy!! i regret not getting one home)

free breakfast (not exactly the best food you'll ever have but it'll do)

all in all, it's a must-stay budget hotel for those who are not feeling like spending big bucks

one down side-no convenience store near by. so if you are feeling like having a late-night snack, better get them prepared then head back to the hotel.

good value for money, really clean and good breakfast, a lot of shopping arcade and place to visit near the hotel (the hotel is in the city)...
to go to the hotel we can get a limousine bus from the airport (both Incheon and Gimpo)
don't forget to make a member card for discount...

We stayed at the hotel in a double A room for total of 3 nights. Although the room was not spacious but cosy, extremely clean well equipped with all the necessities such as pyjamas,slippers, cable HD TV, supply of shower gel...and further impressed us with a bath tub & a retractable clothes string hanger! The hotel also offered quite reasonable breakfast range for its complimentary breakfast!
We chose to stay with this hotel for its good location (in Dongdaemun) near to subway stations, walkable distance to shopping centres such as Doota, Migliore, Am/pm..and the pickup point/bus stop for airport limousine bus transfer was right infront of the hotel. Its good to purchase your airport limousine bus tickets early (upon checkin) and also be slightly early to board the bus as we were advised by the hotel staff (who spoke excellent english) to avoid overcrowding of bus & risked taking the next transfer and delay catching the departure flight.
Needless to say, we were impressed with the overall and will definitely be back! It certainly completes my memorable experience in Seoul :)

I have stayed in the Toyoko Inn of Sapporo and Tokyo. Seoul's is an exact duplicate of those. But it offers more items for breakfast. The location is excellent and the neighborhood is safe. But unlike Japan's where there is always a convenience store near by, I can't find any in the vicinity. Since this is the last stop for the airport limousine, the driver will usually take several minutes' break before he departs. So there was no need to stand at the bus stop and we just waited in the lobby.

Stayed there 2 nights. Paid 73150 WON for a Double-A. The hotel is clean and good.
Request for a Double-B room, if you need a slightly bigger room (additional about USD5 more). Free Japanese breakfast is part of the deal. You get a quality HD TV in your room with numerous channels ranging from Korean drama serial to western programs, including BBC news and movie channels. To access the hotel from Incheon airport, you may use the Airport Limousine Bus Number 6001~ located at Exit 6A/12B ~ 14000 WON for one way bus fare. The ride is comfortable and takes about 80 over mins to Toyoko Inn. The bus stops right outside the hotel entrance. Very easy and convenient. But if you prefer the subway, you may take Line 3 and stop at Euljiro-3-ga Station with escalator access. However, if you take Line 4 and stop at Dondgaemun History & Cuture Station; you will have to climb a very long and steep stairway. Suggest, senior citizens use the former access to get to Toyoko Inn safely. Overall, we rate the hotel very good. Like it!

This hotel cost me $57 US for each night, and for that price it was a bargain. The airport shuttles from both Gimpo Airport and Incheon stop right at the hotel's front door, which is very convenient. The room did not have a window, and was tiny, but the pluses outweighed the negatives. Hotel was very quiet allowing me to get a good night's sleep. Shower had solid water pressure, and there were three free internet stations to use in the lobby. The Metro was a minute's walk away from the front door, and they had beers and newspapers available in the lobby. The staff could have been a tad bit friendlier, but overall, I did not regret my choice.

PROS:
VERY clean
Airport limousine stop just in front of the hotel (take bus 6001 for 15,000 won)
Helpful and English-speaking staff
Fast internet (free internet in room via LAN cable, free wifi at the lobby, public computers with printers at the lobby)
1 minute walk to the nearest subway station
Nice location
Not as expensive as other hotels in Seoul
2 subway stops away from Myeongdong :)

CONS:
So-so breakfast. Not much variety
Small room and bathroom (typical Japanese size. But not too cramped)

For the price, convenience and cleanliness, will definitely stay here again.
