Uljiro CO-OP Residence
Ranked #154 of 500 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed 13 May 2012

The hotel location is spot on. Taking the Airport 6001 bus from Incheon is like taking a taxi. You get a door to door service. The fare is 14,000 KRW/person and the trip takes about 80 minutes on a Sunday morning. The hotel lobby is very small though and usually piled up with luggages from early arrivals or people checking out. You can only check-in the rooms after 3pm. There are seats for only 6 people in the lobby, with two of them for people using the PCs provided. So, if you arrive early like I did after a long flight, you have to find somewhere else to catch up on your sleep before check in. The reception staff are polite but not so friendly as to make you feel at home. Probably because of the language gap. They are quite helpful when asking for directions but do not expect any help with the luggage. I don't think the hotel employ any bell boys to help guests with the luggage.
The room is quite small for two person but it is adequately furnished with a kitchenette and very clean. The bathroom is a bit cramped though. There is a split unit air-conditioner but you need to ask for the remote control unit from the reception. But best of all, broadband LAN and WiFi is provided free of charge 24 hours a day unlike a more upmarket and expensive hotel in Busan, about which I will submit a review later.
Location wise, the Dongdaemun Cultural and Historical Park Metro entrance is five minutes walk away but you will have to walk an additional 10-15 minutes, underground, and negotiating the stairs to get to the tickets hall. Forget going anywhere using the Metro if you have a very heavy luggage to carry. Shops and eateries are plenty nearby but there are no halal restaurants nearby for Muslims.
Overall, this hotel is clean and safe, conveniently located, has good room facilities and if you have meal restrictions or prefer to prepare or brought your own food from home, the kitchenette facilities is very welcomed. The lobby size or reception staff are small matters considering other pluses.

Room Tip: Room facing the back are presumably quieter. It is quite stuffy in May so you need to open the windo...

Located a couple minutes walk away from Dongdaemun, this place was so easy to get to via an airport shuttle bus which takes you right in front of the building. This place is a minute or two walk to the subway system (which was awesome as Seoul has an excellent transit system).

If you love to shop, its a great place to stay. During the day, we would go sightseeing and during the night we would drop our things off the Uljiro and walk to Dongdaemun to shop shop and shop. Really very convenient. Lots of restaurants nearby. Price is excellent for its location. There's a kitchen in the room which is super convenient if you want to eat on a budget. Only drawback is that the room is a little small and there is no separate wall for the shower, which means when you take a shower, the entire bathroom becomes soaked. Staff were pretty nice.

Stayed: September 2011, travelled with friends

Looking for hotel in Seoul?

Look no further, Uljiro Co-Op is the best choice!!

Location:

Located at Dongdaemun shopping district.
Take Airport bus 6001 stop right at the hotel entrance.
Exit from hotel, turn right, walk all the way straight reach a escalator,take the escalator down to the subway - Dongdaemun culture & historical park
Exit from hotel, turn left, within 2 mins walk u reach Korea Post. U can post your goods back to your home without worry about exceed baggage... Take note, Korea Post closes during weekend!
To Dongdaemun shopping district, exit right from hotel, walk straight u will see Lotteria opposite u on your left. Cross the road walk pass Lotteria you will see alot of lighting signboards. Plenty of BBQ restaurants and local foods can be found.

Service:

I'd say their service is excellent.

I told my sis that we our luggage couldn't carry any more stuffs. That was Friday night. So we pack those goods into a box for time being. We went to korea post on Saturday (our last day). To our horror it was CLOSED! Feeling panic and lost, we went to the recep check with them does airport provides shipping services. This staff went all out to call and check any available services. And so lucky that he manage to get a man to collect our goods send to HQ to pack for us.. Really appreciate!

Room:

Some travellers' reviews said that the room are small. Personally, i have no issue about it. Big wardrobe to store your clothes. Table for lappy. Lan cable provided. Small kitchen with necessary equipments and cutleries provided. Microwave. Bathroom is big enough, with a small closet mount on wall. Bed is comfy. Heated floor during winter season.

I book this hotel again if i go Seoul again!

Room Tip: Hotel air con will be off thru out winter season. Open the window if u feel warm.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Great front office staff especially the night shift one has helped & advised us on how to move around in Seoul. We saved a lot of transportation cost & time.
However, the other people in shopping complexes are just friendly because they needed our business. Whenever we say no/think about it to their product, we can see & sense a disturbed look on their face.

Free internet access and near the dongdaemun shopping area. Midnight shopping is always so convenient with Uljiro Co-op. There's laundry services at their basement with minimal charges too.

Room is small though, with a small kitchenette once you stepped into the room.

Booked a double room and a single room and the prices are different (they explained saying the room size is different, but I doubt so) haha

Overall, convenient to shop at dongdaemun if you like late night shopping! (:

Room is extremely small but its alright for two person. The bathroom/toilet is so small that you think the basin was in a mini size. Nevertheless, the room serves its purpose. There's a small fridge and oven in the room. There's a stove too but we did not use it. The room has floor heater as well so you will be comfortable during winter.

Room aside, the hotel location is great. Its just two or three minutes walk to the subway and Dongdaemum shopping area. The hotel is located opposite a hospital and its next to a police station. There are several money changers, eateries and convenient store just beside the hotel. There's also a bus stop in front of the hotel.
