I stayed at the Uljiro from May 18th to May 28th and found it to be clean,comfortable and reasonably priced. As i was travelling solo I just needed a place to relax in between sightseeing so I would not recommend it for families who want a more spacious room and more in the way of facilities provided at their hotel.
A fridge, microwave oven,kettle and cups and dishes were provided although I had been forewarned to bring my own utensils. There is a desk and chair as well as chest of drawers atop which sits a TV. Several stations available-mainly in Korean although I could get CNN and one or two other English stations. Be aware that the showerstall contains the toilet and the sink so these get pretty wet after a shower! My son is teaching in Korea and had told me this was the arrangement he had in his apt. so I felt like a native!
Staff at the desk were friendly and helpful. (Get a map of the downtown area from them.)
The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the Dondaemon Stadium subway station. Korea has a very comprehensive subway network (over 265 stations and growing!) and is very easy to use. All signs are in Korean and English and it is well worth getting a "pass" for a few dollars. (You just add money to it as needed and with it, you avoid having to stand in line for tickets each time.) The subway is very inexpensive and convenient. As well many of them are lined with stores. I got myself and my husband eyeglasses at a store in the Myeongdong Station (exit 7 as you exit the station)-presription lenses and frames for a total of $40. each (total price for 2 came to $80!) You can't beat that!

I chose this hotel as it's of low price and proximity to subway station. The room is nice, with kitchen (with all eating and cooking utensils), big wardrode and spacious desks. The bathroom is good, except it's without bathtub. Everything's the same as their website described. The cable TV there offered a good variety of programmes, including English and even Chinese programmes (movies/dramas). It makes me feel like staying at home. Staff are helpful and can speak English.

I booked this place for 5 nights through the internet and regretted it the first moment I entered the room. Nice slick images and description of the facilities on the booking site homepage were obviously misleading. Rooms turned to be tiny and new furniture - of cheap poor quality. I had to change the room in the middle of the night as the bed was so badly assembled that it shacked and squeaked with every slight move, even a staff engineer could not fix it when tried on the spot. The toilet/shower was more of a kind suitable for backpacker dormitories, not a place advertised as a 3 star hotel (although the price was genuine 3 star). The location is very noisy due to heavy traffic around but no sound insulation was in place. Furthermore, with air condition equipment visible but NOT functioning (just for pictures, probably!) – opening a window was not a good option. I moved out to another hotel early next morning. IMPORTANT NOTE - the staff was quite understanding and sympathetic.

Spent 6 days at the Uljiro a very conveniently located business short term residence hotel. Staff spoke good english and were efficient. Your room is like a tiny apartment they are very very clean and new. You get a tiny glass shower and toilet. sleeping area with business centre and a little kitchen with microwave, fridge, stove,
storage dishes pans etc we shopped at wonderful markets and the whole week only cost us around $27 for simple rice meals and fruit and patries.

You cannot buy early breakfast out as Seoul does not wake up till around 11am so makeing our own gave us a good long day for our sightseeing.

They have washers and dryers and iron for guests.

It may be tiny but it was a good value we were on a seven week trip to India so it fitted the bill
