Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

An average hotel located in a central location.

Don't bother with breakfast as it is not very impressive.

Overall a little bit overpriced but if you are in Seoul for a layover this is a convenient hotel!

Reviewed 21 April 2014

while location of this hotel is great, however, since it is actually located in a small alley, therefore you cannot get a taxi in front of the hotel (need to ask front desk staff to call one, but they called a black cab/expensive cab for me!), and for the same reason, most of the taxi drivers will not drop you off in front of the hotel either (they dropped me off at the main street and told me to walk in the alley), although it is really very close, still an issue when you’re returning to hotel with lots of shopping! also, there are a few stairs at the only entrance of this hotel, that is very annoying when you have heavy luggage. last but not least, please note that this hotel will have NO AIR-CON AT ALL for about 2 weeks time during early spring or late autumn, when they stopped the heat and before providing cool air-con (or vise verse), during these transitional periods of the year, all the rooms in this hotel will simply have no air-con at all.

This hotel was comfortable, clean, and has a very helpful staff. The rooms are standard size for this part of the world (small compared to other areas) but it worked for my short 3 night stay. Everything worked and the location was great. Close to subway lines, historical palaces, museums, food, and shopping. The AC and internet worked great and my room had a small window. Next time I will request a full window but I will stay here again. I booked on Agoda and got a decent price for Seoul realizing that everything in this city is expensive from hotels to food.

I took the airport bus and got off at the City Hall stop....less than one block to the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a full size window

Seoul is very expensive in general. I would have preferred to pay more for a better hotel. Price quality value is not ok. Tiny rooms, some without window and AC! This is 2014!!
Staff is friendly and helpful, location is good. If you just need a bed than it's ok.

Hotel is a basic Best Western, well located. Expensive as everything in Seoul.
Staff does not communicate clear in English and are not friendly to help you booking any tour. Only one lady was helpful.

We stayed for 5 nights toward the end of Dec. The main reason picking up this hotel was the location. It is within walking distance to the Gwanghwamun Square, Cheonggye stream, Gyeongbok Palace, Seoul Plaza outdoor skating rink (winter). Further stroll will reach Myeongdong, Namdaemun Market and N Tower. The subway entrance was near but had to walk a bit for Line 2.

The hotel can be reached using the limousine bus as it stop infront of the Koreana Hotel (opposite the road). However if you have large bags can be cumbersome carrying down the stairs through the underpass.

We stayed on the 14th Floor, triple room. The room was spacious for our big luggage and the beds were comfortable. The room had windows but the view was offices in the next building. Good pressure hot shower 24 hours. Didn't even try breakfast at the hotel as there were so many restaurants (including fastfood) within the vicinity and some were open 24 hours.

We enjoyed our stay and couldn't have ask for more.

Room Tip: Larger room, more space.
