The hotel is good and I think it offered good afternoon tea in lounge as it is always filled with people.. No communication problem with staff, room is spacious, location is good, but it just won't attract me come back again if I am a sightseeing traveller. I think there are more comparable or better options if you will pay for the same rate. This is a business hotel.
The room is spacious with a large window looking out to the traffic road. Nice town view. The room is classic or you call it dated? One thing I don't understand is there is no kettle in the room? But they provide tea bags in room? Cold water for tea? Of course, you can always call for one to send to your room.
The hotel is situated in very down town area of Seoul. It is connected with a department store and downstairs will be the bus terminal, and further down is the subway. It is convenient, as we manage to get to the gangnam station very easily and quickly from the subway station underneath the hotel. However, easy as it sounds to get to the subway, we would rather prefer hotel with subway station next to it. I am thinking it could be lot more easier to get to the subway station if you actually walk out from the hotel and walk towards the subway station. Hotel like this which is connected to the subway may means a lot of walk inside, and you probably won't remember the way back when there are similar stores on the way.
The airport bus station is close if you are travelled light, but far if you are travelled with lots of shopping. We could see the heavy traffic in the area, so airport bus don't come on time.
I would said this hotel is a business hotel and I believe it serve businessmen needs very well. As a sightseeing tourist, I think there will be other better choice. Again, nothing is wrong with the hotel. It just don't fit with my traveling purpose.
