great rooms, service and amenities. Great location near Seodaemun station, and close to downtown and Seoul City Plaza. Many artsy type movie theaters in the area and great western restaurant. Free parking at the hotel.

We booked a 2 bedrooms apartment during our Aug trip.

Hotel location:
1. The airport express bus stop is conveniently nearby, especially the trip back to airport. It is just a doorstep away from the hotel. However, from the hotel, one would have to walk about 5-8 mins from the bus stop.

2. subway station is only about 3 mins walking distance away.

3. with the hotel name card, all my taxi drivers are able to get us back there. myeongdong is 5 mins drive away.

Hotel facilities:
1. apartment is spacious. has a full sized fridge and many cabinets.
2. wide variety of channels on tv. only 1 kid channel and it is not sufficient to entertain my toddler.
3. cleanliness/housekeeping needs improvement. In the master bedroom, we put the 2 single beds together. granted, the carpet beneath the bed collected quite a lot of dust and dirt over time but it wasn't cleaned until the 4th day.
4. beds are way tooo soft and pillows are way tooo flat.
5. frontdesk attendants are not very interested to welcome or help out guest.
6. washer/dryer took 2.5hrs for a load. on the 3rd use onwards, the dryer doesn't work and we have to hang the clothes all over the room to get it dry.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. We selected the hotel because it has its own stop for the airport limousine (shuttle bus); we didn't want to mess around with looking for the hotel at night. It's also right by the metro station, making it really convenient to go anywhere in the city. Checking in was a breeze. The suite was very spacious and clean. Some furniture showed signs of aging though. We didn't like the fact that there was no wi-fi in the room and we had to use cable to connect to the Internet. That means only 1 laptop can get online at a time. Staff was polite and helpful. I was advised to take the express train to the airport, which took a bit longer than the airport limousine (shuttle bus) but saved me a few dollars.

Nothing special to report. Things worked as expected.

The Vabien II residence is a hotel/residence located on the periphery of downtown Seoul (North of the Han River). It is conveniently located next to the number 5 Metro and the Incheon Airport shuttle stops directly at the hotel. The room we had, 1308, was a 2 bedroom suite. While reasonably priced for Seoul, the room was very worn but clean. The wood floors are completely worn out, the bathroom fixtures are loose and in need of repair. Let's say that the room condition is old and in need of renovation but the housekeeping is good. The hallways are lined with stained carpeting and are not climate controlled. The service is mildly pleasant. I turned in my laundry 2 days prior to the promised delivery date and the housekeeping manager neglected to have it serviced. In fact they said nothing and did nothing. I had to ask repeatedly to have the dirty laundry returned. it was returned at 9pm 2 days later. This will be my first and last stay at the Vabien II or any of the Vabien residences.

Currently staying here. Have stayed here for 5 days.

Room: Size is fine for us. Safety deposit box is not working. Oven is dusty. Washing machine is dirty. No dish drainer. No cleaning cloth to wipe the table. Look at the pictures posted.

Cleaniness: The overall cleaniness is just ok. Other than changing the bed linen, toilet towels and clearing of rubbish bin, basically they don't clean the dishes in the sink. (Another service apartment that i stayed before does wash up the dishes.)

Location: Good location. Near the metro station. Airport bus stop is just in front of the building.
7 eleven at level one of the building and a supermarket at the metro station. Very convienent for making your groceries.

Overall, for the price and service, is ok for short stay. But for long stay, probably not as the cleaniness for long term will only make you feel more and more uncomfortable. Will not be staying here again.
