A clean and functional hotel in a wonderful location. It is not a cheap hotel but given this is Seoul, the price is rather reasonable.
It is located very centrally within walking distance to Myeong Dong shopping district (where you can go to in the evening for the night market) as well as Deoksugung Palace (5 mins walk).
The airport limo shuttle bus also stops here making it very convenient and economical to get to/from Incheon Airport.
The room is spacious with the usual amenities including a nice bathroom with a toilet seat warmer.
Bed is comfortable and there is a welcome fruit basket as well. I had the room facing away from Euljiro Road so it is quiet but I heard from other guests that rooms facing the road can be quite noisy.
Don't expect too much from TV channel choices as while this is a high end hotel, English channels are rather limited but it is a minor inconvenient when you are likely to spend more time outdoors anyway.
The Lotte Department Store is next door for those who fancy some retail therapy.
All in, I don't really have much criticism. The check-in was smooth and service impeccable as you would expect in Korea.
I would consider Lotte Hotel again if I want a hotel with a great location.
