Best Western Premier Guro Hotel
Ranked #106 of 504 Hotels in Seoul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2013

I stayed at this hotel for a week at the end of March 2013. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They gave me maps to the subway when I needed it, and even gave me recommendations for dining and locations for shopping. The Patio restaraunt has been replaced by a Starbucks, so there is only the one buffet restaurant which does breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rooms are nice and clean, the Lobby looks nice, and it is altogether a nice hotel for business or Family.

Stayed: March 2013

Stayed here a few times on business. Modern and very clean. Breakfast and evening buffets are very good. Internet is fast. Only bad point is that there can be large tour groups staying, so if you catch them at breakfast or check-in / out time this can cause a long wait.

Me and my husband stayed here for 4 nights during Feb 2013 on a business trip and found every aspect of the hotel amazing. The room was on the 13th floor with amazing views over Seoul. Dressing gowns, slippers, and all toiletries were in the room along with kettle coffe/tea etc. The room was very comfortable and had a flat screen TV too :-)
The breakfast in the mornings was all very nice and fresh with a massive variety of all different foods.
We ate at the buffet restaurant one evening and again was very pleased with the variety of different foods that was available.
All in all i would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 1302 on floor 13 has amazing views :-)

This hotel is about 4 minutes walk from our global headquarters and I've stayed there twice now, once for a fortnight and on this occasion, for three days. I stayed in one of the Executive rooms. My room was spacious enough, had an extremely comfortable bed and a great shower.

The staff are always extremely attentive, the breakfast offers a huge selection of European and Asian cuisine, mostly very pleasant. I had not had grilled snapper for breakfast before but can speak in praise of it now!

As many other commenters have pointed out, this hotel is still new but it is in a now-established part of the Guro digital complex and is surrounded by literally dozens of places to eat and some decent bars. The Miller Time bar is nearby but I recommend the Wa Bar opposite for a more ecumenical range of world beers. It's well connected with the rest of Seoul via the Guro metro station and the 6004 Airport "Limousine" bus drops off opposite the hotel and picks up right outside the front entrance. The bus only costs KRW10,000 (about GBP6) for an hour-long ride, very good value.

The fitness centre is the only mild let-down and I'm still searching for a non-UK hotel which does a proper British cup of tea, so the quest continues. But the facilities (which include free Wifi) are top class and this hotel is a pleasure to stay in, for short and long trips.


I paid just under GBP100 per night and that kind of money certainly wouldn't buy such a good standard in our British capital. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on one of the highest floors and if it's important to you, ask for non-smoking...

The hotel is located a block away from Guro Digital Complex Subway Station and it's surrounded by places to eat and hang out.
The hotel itself looks quite new, it's clean and it has a modern look. On the first floor you'll find a Starbucks coffee, and in the 2nd floor the Fitness center (rather small and unattended) along the Hotel restaurant called "La Stella" where they also serve breakfast every morning. on Weekends as usual in Korea, You'll see big crowds of people celebrating "Dol" or the 1st birthday of an offspring which is a meaningful event for korean households.

About the rooms, they are quite comfortable, nevertheless venting is an issue and the room gets quite dusty. (Consider that I traveled during winter with minus degrees outside).

To wrap up this place is a nice option if you don't have to travel downtown very often. If you plan to visit Seoul, I'd recommend something closer to the city.

I was recommended this hotel by a colleague when I needed to spend one night in Seoul for a meeting near by. This hotel is conveniently connected from the Incheon Airport by bus (take no 6004 costs 10,000 Korean Won (about US $10) one way, takes about 1 hr 15 minutes. Drops you off right in front of the hotel. There is a Starbucks in the lobby, and there are good eating places nearby. My colleague said that this neigborhood used to be the textile hub many years ago. It has been transformed into a IT Hub and there are plenty of IT related offices nearby making it convenient for business travellers.

The room was very nice with free wifi and wired internet, something not very common in Korea (the 'free' part, that is). I did not have local Korean currency for my return trip (the bus accepts only cash if purchasing ticket on the bus, unlike at the airport where you can purchase it by credit card) and the hotel staff helpfully gave me 10000 Won in cash and charged my credit card. In all a pleasant experience, and if business brings me again to this part of Seoul I'll gladly stay here again.

Have a nice trip and hope you found the review helpful.

Our travel agent booked us for this hotel. We stayed 2 nights there. The rooms were good nice and clean. It's a new hotel I was told that is why everything were quite new. The breakfast provided were quite decent. The location was quite ok, where you walk out at night there are many cafes, bars, convenient stores and also nice bakeries. Only setback was on the 1 morning the hotel forgotten our request for morning call. It was rectified after our tour leader made a complain. The hotel sent a maintenance crew to rectify all the our room's phones. Overall a nice and convenient place at a decent location.
