The location of the hotel is bang in the middle some printing factories/companies. Walking to the hotel from the underground though is not far but if you're doing this late in the evening you might feel unsafe since the streets are quite dark and you might get lost in the maze. Therefore, it's best to stick to their shuttle sevices in the evening. Plus if you have big lugguages, it might be very painful since the underground in Seoul do not have much lifts or escalators!
Stayed on the lady's floor. Room was big but the air con did not quite covered the room causing the room to be abit damp, likewise with the bedding. The bedside lamp was broken too but they did have some nice touches like the foot massage machine next to the sofa for you to pamper in after a long day shop around town. Bell service was excellent and friendly, check in lady was a bit moody but check out was very smooth.
I actually only used the shuttle service once as I noticed taking the underground to different tourist sites are more convenient and quicker. Traffic jams can be quite hectic in this busy city. Airport bus stop is quite near by, again you have to drag your lugguage for 10 mins to the bus stop on this very rocky, narrow, dark road with lots of local small restaurants' food or cooking equipment on the same path. Unfortunately, I had to do this in the drizzle, dread to think if I had to do this in heavier rain. You could cut this mess by taking the shuttle but if you have big lugguage and there are a few of you, it might be quite inconvenient to get on the small bus.
It actually took me 1.5hr to get to the airport on the bus vs. if I take the Airport train from Seoul station + underground, I can do it within an hour with big lugguage.
If you are looking for a night to stay to cater your shopping chores, this might be the place for you. But if you are looking for comfort too, you might need to go for somewhere else. Definitely not a 5 stars hotel, I would only give it a 3.5 or 4.
