The staff were very friendly and helpful, desk clerks spoke English well, bellmen always made sure taxi drivers knew where you wanted to go. Hotel also provides a shuttle bus every 20 minutes (prime time and less often non-prime time) to/from the Yang-jae subway stop. But it took me 3 days to find out where the return pick-up location was -- it is hard to describe and one really has to be shown in person.
Taxis are reasonably priced but traffic is often heavy so the cost of the same trip can vary widely. Some taxis flagged down near Yang-jae subway couldn't take us to the hotel, which was legitimately outside their "zone" of operation. It is best to take the subway to/from Yang-jae for the fastest trip because it avoids vehicle traffic slowdowns, then from there take taxi or shuttle to/from the hotel. From the airport take the Express bus to Yang-jae, then taxi to the hotel.
Our very comfortable and clean room was a "Western suite" with king bed, larger than a normal "twin", and had plenty of space for a twin bed to be added if you want 2 beds. Beds are hard. Ask for more pillows if you want them. Shampoo and conditioner are mini-bar items for which you pay. Bathroom lighting is poor for shaving or makeup.
