Very nice hotel, with friendly staffs and attentive staffs. Asked for a late check-out by a hour and it's done immediately, very efficient. Close to 2 subway stations, City Hall and Seodaemun stations. Quite a distance to these 2 stations (around 5 mins or 10 mins if you take a slow walk) but the hotel is still conveniently located. You can take a cab to Myeongdong or Dongdaemun market as it's around 5 - 10 mins ride only, and it's cheap. There's a 7-11 opposite the apartment too, and nearby there are cheap and local food restaurants that are family run-ed business. No English menu but it's really cheap if you managed to order the food. Kimchi Chigae is the one that I have ordered and it's one of the best meal that I had ate in Korea.

Room are clean and there's room service too. We booked a studio apartment so can't comment much as it's only a 1 room apartment. Toilet is small though, but the toilet bowl is the Japanese high tech kind. Note that studio apartments (twin beds, not sure about the single queen bed room) has no dryer or washing machine. There are laundry services but it's expensive.

Price is a little pricey as compared to nearby serviced apartments like Vabien Suits, or Brownsweet apartment. But money is still well spent as the room are nice and very friendly staffs too.

Astounded that some of the reviews I have read complain about this place. Sure, English is not their first language however, the staff here are some of the most helpful we have come across in all of our travels. Nothing is too much trouble and they appear genuinely happy to see you when you return to the hotel after your day out. The rooms are very large by western standards with cooking facilities available if you are on a budget. Centrally located to endless dining options and shopping opportunities to suit every budget. Get out of your comfort zone and get over the language barrier, be nice and they will bend over backwards to help you, to the point of writing down directions for the taxi driver to where ever you want to go. Absolutely love this place. To the point..........we went out for a pizza dinner and brought one back for the late shift staff. YES.......they are that good.

Room Tip: They are all good :)

In Seoul for a business trip and our business partner's office is right by the hotel, so the Fraser Place Central being a logical choice. It is also close to the Central rail station and subway. A convenient store is right across from the hotel. You can get almost everything you need there.
I also noticed the hotel has a lot of Russian Nationals as it is very close to the Russian Embassy. The guest service agent was very friendly and helpful. Basically the hotel is a service apartment with a restaurant. The apartment was basic but has everything, TV, DVD, sounds system. It also has a kitchenette and laundry machine so in case you want to cook yourself a breakfast or serving a noodle for nightcap. You really feel like you were living at your good old apartment at home. I said this because: a) Fraser Place is not really new (can I say a bit old actually). b) The furniture selection really gives you that 'home' feel. c) The cleaning lady cut a lot of corners on cleaning, exactly like what you would do your cleaning at home after 5 days of exhausting office work.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your comments on your stay at Fraser Place Central Seoul.
Your comments are very helpful for us to see where we are up to and what needs to be looking at in order to improve guest's experience.
For the furniture, we are in the process of planning of refurbishment of apartments as it is getting tired, we will push harder to move it fast.
Housekeeping service has been addressed to department head to improve cleaning standard, especially blind corner that can be easily missed out when cleaning, I am sure that it will be improved.

We look forward welcoming you in the near future.

Sincerely

I've actually stayed here for about 3 times. The reason I kept coming back was because of how comfortable this place feels. It is not luxurious, but clean, spacious and homely. It feels great to be going back to somewhere homely and comfortable after a tiring day out shopping or site seeing. There is airport bus that goes straight to the door, and hotel is very conveniently located to many shopping or dining areas. Staff are overall very helpful.

I have originally booked my 4th stay on December 2013, but due to personal reasons (very sick), I wasn't able to go on this trip and had to cancel last minute. The staff were very nice, understanding and helpful with the cancellation process. Instead of short time profit, they definitely focused on long time client relationship building. I will definitely be back and refer this hotel to all my friends who want a comfortable homely stay in Seoul.

Stayed here for one night for the one bedroom apartment after staying for 2 weeks in another 5 stars international brand name hotel. Compare with previous one, this is a 7 stars choice! Room is very huge, just like home with every thing you needs. And we even make a real home cook meal after eating out for 2 straight weeks! Great location with bus stations downstairs and subway not too far away. It's close to Seoul station with only 10 mins walk. Th hotel's front desk staff speak very good English and can understand yours very well. 7-11 is just opposite to the back door of thw hotel. I will definitely stay there again.
