This is a very large hotel and is part of the COEX convention center. However, the place is run beautifully. All the staff are very courteous and efficient. The room (2 doubles) was on the small side but this is a big city. The beds were great, the bathroom was large, the WiFi worked really well. The rooms were cleaned promptly and well. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet which was truly wonderful. It had everything from standard Western fare to kimchi and noodles. The location of the hotel isn't optimal for sightseeing (although there is a beautiful temple right across the way) but it's a 10 min walk to the nearest subway station (the subway in Seoul is easy to use, clean, safe and runs like clockwork).
One last comment about the fitness facility at the hotel. Huge Olympic-sized swimming pool. But what's even better - they provide free shoes, socks, and gym clothing in case you forgot to bring your own! Just use whatever you need and then leave them behind.
