      This hotel is very well maintained and is located approx. 10 mins walk away from the euljiro 1-ga Metro subway station. There are many Korean restaurants outside the hotel. Lotte Duty Free and Shinsegae Duty free is ~ 20 mins walk away and so is Myeongdong shopping street. Room is spacious and very clean. Great place to stay.

      Me and my parents (66y.o.) stay for 4 nights and this is our 1st time visiting Korea. On our 1st day of arrival, the taxi driver couldn't located the hotel (from Seoul station) and it took hours to round-and-round, driver tried to call up the hotel but no one pick-up the phone and end up we paid krw15k for the trip. We told the receptionist and the girl answered us without any expression that "maybe is because of lunch hour"! There's quite a distance from this hotel to Myeongdong (for elderly n children), this distance is a bit embarassing that some drivers don't willing to drive the passenger to Myeongdong. There was a time that my 66 y.o. mom knee is pain and I wanted to call a taxi to Myeongdong MCD to wait for our day tour guide, the hotel staff insisted that we should walk instead (he mentioned 15-20 mins fast walk, slow walk then?). Hence, this hotel is not elderly friendly enough! The Delux twin room is a bit too small for 3pax, the other 2 hotels we lodged is 388sft same type.

      Excellent hotel in good location”
      Hotel is located in a quiet area near Myeongdong. Has good facilities for washing clothes and gym. Only one bad point is the shuttle bus driver when we left the hotel to transit to the airport at the Airex, which he dropped us at the main road despite the rain and a drop zone near the train terminal at Seoul station.

      Staying at aFirst with family for 4 nights on our first time Seoul visiting, the hotel gave us very good impression, very clean room and comfortable bed, very closed to Subway station and Myeongdong shopping area, but in a quite street - Super location! Around hotel, you can easily find a lot of restaurants, hotel shuttle bus is also convenient to go many main places like Seoul Station, Nam Shan Tower cable car, etc., Hotel Staffs are all nice to response all our requests! Thanks and we definitely recommend this hotel! will be back here if we have next chance.

      We booked for twin bed room for 1 adult and 1 child (10 year old). The room was equip with chargers for all sorts of brand cell phone/devices. They have "meet & greet" tea /coffee and cookies Mon-Fri from 5pm-7pm. It great location 15 mins walk to City Hall, and 10 minutes walk to Lotte Department store & Myeongdong underground shopping. Many eateries near by, Paris Baguette, 7Eleven, ect. They also offer shuttle service to near by locations, Seoul Station, Namsa Tower, Gyeongbokgung Palace, however even with the set displayed schedule, you need to let the staff know. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only thing was the "aromatherapy" scent as you enter the hotel, it can be strong, and the walls are a bit thin as we can hear other occupants close the door or talk loudly in the hall way. But overall great deal, location and staff.

      Great location with plenty of local eateries serving the office crowd in the surrounding buildings. Located within the city office zones, presumably banking area. Local eateries serve authentic korean bbq just around the corner. Lotte shopping mall / Myeongdong shopping street is just the next block away.

Kami kembali mencoba ke staf wanita untuk dicarikan taxi. Ketika staf wanita sedang berusaha mencarikan kami taxi, muncul staf pria yang seperti baru bangun tidur, sepertinya memberi tahu staf wanita untuk berhenti mencarikan taxi bagi kami.

      Nice Hotel at a convenient location in Myeong Dong”
      The hotel looks really modern and clean. Even though the room is small but the design and architecture made us feel spacious. Very close to Lotte Department and Shopping area.
