“Very good hotel, good location, good service but no gym”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is a very good hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious. Good-sized bathroom with really nice toiletries (Acca Kappa shampoo and lotion).

The lobby is a bit small though. I travelled with people from work and it was too crowded whenever we're waiting for each other. The hotel has free wi-fi but you have to log-in every time. The hotel has no gym, which is bad if you're going to stay there for a while.

I enjoyed the buffet breakfast (but then I'm not that hard to please when it comes to food). The dining area is pleasant and big.

The location is awesome. It's very very near the shopping districts. We went there early December and so I was able to buy cheap beauty stuff (BB Cream, masks, makeup) as Christmas gifts for the women in my life. There are also a lot of good restaurants in the area.

We booked a triple room and the room is very spacious with one double bed and 2 single bed. The room is tidy, clean and comfortable. However the bath room is really small even for Asian people. The staff are very polite and friendly. Check in was fast and efficient. The location is unbeatable, very closed to the attraction myeongdong shopping arcade just one block behind the hotel building. The shuttle bus from the airport just stopped in front of the hotel door. Subway is also a few step from the hotel door.

The hotel is located right next to the shopping area. The airport bus stop is just in the front of the hotel but beside that we are not too impressed with anything else. WiFi is fast but you wil have to sign in every time you use. There is only a few chairs on the lobby which is not too convenient when there are too many people. The room is too small according to the price we paid . The bathtub is freaking small, we think it's for the kids. The smell outside of your room is not too pleasant. It smells like fresh paint but not exactly. Honestly, I wouldn't come back to this hotel again.

Staff are very friend and let us checked in early. The airport shutter bus reach the Door step of this hotel. Posh and clean and even though it's aged, everything is still spanking clean. Myeong dong is just around the corner!

The Myeongdong shops & restaurants are just round the corner. You can get taxi or MTR easily from there. The rooms are more spacious compared to other hotels in Seoul. The only drawback is it's too old-fashioned.

Good size room but beds are old. Need more update on decor and bathrooms. Very convenient location with being the last stop on a direct bus from Airport. Hallway carpet is old and smelly.
It's a good value hotel !
