“Great Location and Clean Room”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

Hotel:
Good thing is the receptionist can speak english, although is not that fluent but at least you can understand. The room is clean and neat. good condition hotel. This is my 2nd time staying here and the hotel improved a lot compare to the 1st time which make me really happy with it.

Location:
This hotel is 5 to 10mins walking distance from subway. Many nice restaurants available nearby with resonable price. Convenient store just few minutes away form the hotel. 10 to 15 mins walk to Dongdaemon.

A friend and I were visiting Seoul for a few days last January on our way to Vietnam. Another friend who lived in Seoul for a while recommended Dongdaemun as the place to stay and we found this hotel. It's about 60-90 minutes from Incheon by bus and the bus stops right by the hotel or it's about a $90 cab ride which is about 50 minutes.

The lobby is tiny but there's a computer for using the internet. The staff was very friendly and accomodating and patient, even with the language barrier. The also helped us pick out some stuff to do with our free time.

The room was clean, simple, and comfortable. There was a small mini fridge and plenty of space to keep food and drinks. The floor was heated which was nice in the freezing winter but I made the mistake of leaving my chapstick on the floor and it melted. The bathroom is small. It's just one room with a drain in the floor so I recommend shutting the toilet lid before showering.

The location is great. There's markets, bars, stores, restaurants, rides, the subway, a mall, pretty much anything you'd need nearby and if you want to use the subway it's very simple and cheap.

We booked this hotel with a travel agency who highly recommended this place as a modern hotel located in a fantastic area, they were completely right.

The room and toilet is small but enough for the two of us, they even fit in a well equipped pantry which we were extremely pleased with when we came back late one night craving midnight noodles.

The room is simply furnished and with clean colours, making the room feel more spacious than it was. Everything was also clean.

Just across the road from the hotel are many restaurants and food stands, not the mention the famous shopping arcades, perfect for women seeking retail therapy.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who would want to visit Seoul.

As already mentioned in the other reviews, the biggest plus of this hotel is its location. Airport Bus 6001 stops right in front of the hotel which is situated within minutes of walking distance to Dongdaemun, where shops are open into the wee hours. Our room was small and compact, but comfortable and quiet, and very clean. The heated floor was a nice touch during the cold winter when we were there. I particularly enjoyed the multi-head showers with good water pressure. Also on every level there was a hot/cold water cooler so it saved us the trouble (and money) of buying bottled water. The front staff spoke good English and was very helpful. All in all it was a very good stay and good value for money.

I really had a pleasant stay at Uljiro Co-op Residence Hotel.

From Incheon International Airport you can take Airport bus 6001 Dongdaemoon Fashion Town to the Hotel. It cost 14.000 won (10 euro/ 13 USD) to take the bus. The bus stops in front of the hotel. It wasn't crowded and it takes 1,5- 2 hours to the hotel. Check in went fast.

The staff of the reception are really nice and helpfull. They have a restaurant for breakfast and lunch, but you have to pay extra. It was not included in our booking. We didnt use the restaurant, because there are supermarkets closes to the hotel.

The hotelroom
The rooms are clean and big enough for two. We had a kitchen with refrigerator, a watercooker with coffee and tea. A big desk and tv. The tv has a lot of different channels. Also a big closet to put your clothes in. A lot of people find the room small.. but we only use it to sleep... not to hang in the hotel. The bathroom contains a washtable, shower and a toilet. For some its inconvenient that these three are open.. but we didnt mind. Towels and bed get changed every day.
We got a nice view from our hotelwindow.. we saw the Seoul Tower, but also a huge billboard.. which i find kind of funny instead of annoying. Also acces to free internet through WIFI was really good in the hotelroom. You don't need a password.

Transport
There are two subway entrances near the hotel..
One across the street in front of Lotteria and the other right on the left when you walk out of the hotel. Here you can take subwayline 1 (blue line) and subwayline 2 (Green line) Its easy to the subway which can take you anywhere. You can buy tickets at the ticketmachine, but we used a t-money card (transportation card) .. Its handy because you can use it for buses and the subway.

Surrounding of the hotel
The hotel is close to a lot of shoppingmalls: Doota Mall, Hello Apm, Migliore and dongdaemun market. There are also lots of restaurants.. the Dongdaemun Design Plaza& Park is 5 minutes away from the hotel and you can see the famous Cheonggyecheon Stream if you walk less than 10 minutes.

We really liked staying in this hotel.. its clean, not lot of noises, close to shopping malls and restaurant. Airport bus and close to the subway. This is not a luxe hotel.. just a good place to sleep and rest.

And yes we would stay again in this hotel... we actually plan to book this hotel again for our trip to Seoul this year...

Airport bus drop off right at its doorstep!
Its a 5 mins walk to the subway and about 10 mins to miligore and dongdaemun.
Hotel is very well maintained. A water dispenser on each floor. Sink, microwave, cups, utensils.
Downside however is, to wash the dishes ourselves..

Will definitely return!

First of all, the tripadvisor map is displaying a wrong location for the Uljiro Co-op.
(Check agoda or hotels.com or booking.com map for the correct location)

If you try to search the address using google map, it will show a pin of Western Co-op. This is another residence on the same straight road but about 250m away (Uljiro is 250m nearer to Dongdaemum History subway).

The location is almost perfect. It is a short walk (less than 200m) from Dongdaemum History subway station. Just across the main road are plenty of restaurants (including Lotteria burger - 24hr) so you will be quite spoiled for choices. Also a short distance across the road are a number of shopping complexes, all packed full of shops / stores. (typically operates from 1030am to 4am).

Rooms are small but very clean. Lots of space saving features that in a way compensates for lack of space (i.e shoe cabinet, doors that open outwards). Showers are right next to toilet so might be a challenge to keep the toilet seats dry.

There are water dispenser on each floor (dispenses hot and cold water). Bottled water supposedly only provided on first day.

Washing machines, dryers and iron / ironing board are provided in basement.
(Cost 500 won for washing powder, 1000 won for wash, 1000 won for drying.)

Airport bus 6001 stops right at the hotel entrance. Frequency is about 35 minutes. (There is a full schedule at front desk). Took us about 1 hr 40 mins journey to reach the airport on a Saturday mid-afternoon.

At the nearest subway entrance we can see ongoing renovation works for escalators but for now, to reach the subway, need to climb around 55 -60 steps.

Definitely will stay here again if I come back and do not wish to spend too much on hotel accommodation.
