Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip.
It is a great place for business travelers - quick check-in & fuss-free check-out, spacious and well lit room (stayed on executive floor), free (& fast) wifi, quick and friendly service.
I was especially impressed by the friendly, approachable but not intrusive staff. They deliver the services fast and always with a SMILE.
I went to the concierge an evening to find out the location of a shop in Myeongdong but the concierge was not there. As I was about to walk away, a staff at the check-in counter walked over to offer her help. As she could not find the shop on the map, she took the trouble to 'google' and even call the shop to find out the exact location. And all the while, she was apologizing for taking a long time. She eventually found the place and draw it on the map... This is customer service at the highest level!
There is big and well-equipped gym on the 3rd floor too (one of the best I have used in my years of traveling). There is an indoor swimming pool too.
The hotel is also within walking distance to the shopping areas (Myeongdong & Namdaemun) and the palace (did not have time to visit). Hence, we were spoilt for choices of food....
Overall, a great hotel in a great location.
I will stay in this hotel again he next time I visit Seoul.
