Really good located, but some times hard to find. Not far from Muendong and Railway station. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are well furnished but restroom not big. The re are a lot of coffee shops around. Shapping mals and subway are also in walking distance.

Centrally located, suites are large and plenty of space. Two bedrooms, kitchenette and living room provide enough space for a small family that has to stay few days before a relocation.
For a normal traveller, the place is little lacking of charme, decoration of the rooms is really basic and certainly not highly sophisticated.
Rest of the facility is rather simply and breakfast is correct.

Room Tip: High and backside of the hotel. Front side is a bit noisy.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom super deluxe with my family. We were 4 adults and 4 young children. I wrote to inform the hotel beforehand of the large number of people and asked about extra charges. Since my children were all under 6, there were no extra charges.

The hotel-apartment looked just like how it is shown in the pictures. I was expecting the hotel pictures to be glammed up but I'd say the maintenance was pretty good. It was really spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped. I wish there were instructions to how to use the washing machine and dishwasher though. Wasn't too sure how to use them. The beds were really comfortable. I was surprised they didn't provide toothbrushes though. There were the usual shower gels, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Do bring your own toothbrush. If you didn't, no problem. 7-11 is just next to the hotel.

Coffee bean is located next to the hotel lobby so I had my lovely coffee fix every morning.

I'm full of praises for the lovely receptionists. They were most helpful and I'd say their command of English is really good given that everywhere I go in Korea, nobody understood English. There were a couple of nights I was really tired from the outing and we didn't have anymore strength to get dinner. The recept actually helped us order delivery. I wish I wasn't too tired to catch her name.

The subways aren't really that close by so if you have young children, it's probably not that convenient. The 2 subways close by, however, are the central stations. Which means you can easily assess different coloured lines from them. So they are actually worth the walk. Lotte mart is about a 10mins walk away.

With 4 children under 6 I went on the taxi most of the time. Now, this is the problem. Most drivers have no idea where the place is. Luckily I read reviews on Tripadvisor and I printed out the address and phone number of the hotel in Korean language. Even then, the taxi drivers had to pause for a while and think. Some had to call the hotel. A couple went the wrong way. None of them knew immediately where the hotel was located. So if you are staying here, print out the hotel address and phone number in korean words. Not English. It'll be useful whereever you go.

The sauna, I must say, is the most underrated facility that is mentioned here. Do make time to go to the sauna. I regretted only going the day before I left the hotel. I should have gone there every night. If you do not have time for Jjimjilbang, just go to the sauna located next to the swimming pool.

Overall it was an extremely pleasant experience. I would stay here again if I'm returning to Seoul.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor. I stayed on the third floor and missed out on the beautiful views.

We stayed one night at Fraser Place Central Seoul in a clean, spacious double studio. As others have mentioned, the location is great but the washing machine was what made all the difference. Seoul was hot and steamy when we were there in May 2014 and being able to easily wash (and dry-the machines are also dryers) the clothes of my sweaty teenage sons and husband meant that I was spared the usual assault on my nostrils when we returned home and they opened up their luggage. I would definitely recommend this hotel (- though the floor to ceiling windows could be a bit unnerving to someone with acrophobia).

One of difference that we have from other conventional hotel would be the washing machine and kitchen in the room with proving hotel services such as cleaning, concierge and 24 hours reception service, this is definitely well received to travelers.

Once again, thank you for the comments and we look forward welcoming you in the near future.

We spent 4 nights on double studio room, and found the accommodation to include all necessary items with some nice additions too.
Double studio was very spacious and comfortable. 14th floor apartment was on non-smoking floor, and there was really not any cigarette smell. The nearby construction site didn't bother us at all.
The hotel is near Seoul train station and City Hall metro station, so it was very easy to travel forward.
Wifi worked rather good, but could have been better.
I'd recommend this hotel to persons who would like to stay in main city area, but would like to avoid the most busiest areas.

I always stay at this place when in Seoul - it's close to our offices, a short walk to Seoul station, city hall area, Lotte Outlet for shopping and subways. The apartments are clean, bright and spacious and have limited cooking facilities and a washing machine. Breakfast, although extensive, isn't appealing to me but includes western and Korean options. You can also book without the breakfast option and buy your own stuff - the large fridge is very useful for this, especially for long stays. The only downside is that the room walls are very thin and noisy neighbors can ruin your sleep! Free and reliable wifi as per
normal in Seoul.

The hotel was in a great location. Only 5 minutes to 2 different subway stations and conveniently located in central Seoul i.e. not more than 5 subway stops from most of the main tourist attractions in the capital.

7 Eleven just behind the back door made it very convenient for groceries. We especially liked how we were given a new little bag of laundry powder each day so we could wash our clothes.

The room is spacious and the Japanese toilet is also a nice touch. Overall great, wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay here again.
