      awesome experience”
      The hotel is close to city center. There's a lot of restaurants around the area. However, the taxi drivers are unfamiliar with the hotel. Once they get the address, its easier to tract using waze. Staff are very helpful, know how to speak english. Room size is decent and bathroom is nice. Aircon is not too cold but since we went to korea during fall season, room temperature is acceptable. We stayed there for 4 days 3 nights. Everyday, they clean and fix the room. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Til next time.

      Not for families with children”
      I would have given it a perfect rating if not for the rude front desk staff who kept giving us judging stares each time one of my kids would make a noise in the lobby. I’m sure it’s not the first time they had guests with small children. We travel a lot and I’m not really the type who tolerate bad behaviors from my children especially in public places but kids will be kids - sometimes they can be really playful. A little understanding from the staff comes a long way - not the constant smirks that makes you feel unwanted! Hope this won’t happen to other guests with young children.

      The airport bus station to hotel , need 10 to 15 mins walking. The weather in Seoul is getting cold so no air conditioner in the room only have hitter and the hitter you can’t turn off or make it lower. Finally we got a fan at the first night. The good point of this hotel is many restaurants around the hotel.

      clean hotel in a very convenient location”
      This hotel is less than one year old so everything is clean and nice. The room is nicely designed and all amenities are provided. However, the pillows are too low, therefore did not provide a good support for the neck. In addition, the room temperature is set at 28c, really too warm to get a good sleep:( the hotel provided free shuttle to make attractions which was a bonus. All in all, a good hotel if they could improve on the pillows and lower the room temperature.

      Disappointing!”
      We stayed here for 5 nights. The location was perfect, very closed to Lotte Hotel, Myeongdong & the train station. The housekeeping did very good job on cleaning. The only thing that I hate is the hotel's management decided to turn off the A.C of the whole hotel since the weather was getting cold. The reception told us to open the window if the room was too hot. I think that the money I paid for the room already included everything? I am sure that the guest will only turn on the AC when the room is too hot or too cold. I tried to open the window when I was awake only but it didn't help much. Also, I am a light sleeper so I cant open the window the whole night. We couldn't sleep for few nights because the room was too hot. Advice for the hotel: If you are in hospitality industry, CUSTOMER'S FIRST! please don't try to save that such money because it will affect your rating. I think you should train your staffs that let their manager know if there are to many complains!

      The location consider average. Reception staff can speak English. Other than that not much interaction with hotel staff. They do not change bed sheet everyday. Pillow too soft. For the 5 nights I stay there could not sleep well. The bed consider too short for me because I am a tall person. I dont think I will stay there again on my next trip.

      Comfortable stay”
      Despite being in Myeongdong, it is a bit of a distance away from the crazy shopping streets most tourists have come to associate with the name, so that is a big plus. The location is a short walk from a number of train stations and just a short hop to the stream which runs through the city. It cannot be faulted. The beds were also comfortable as was the general cleanliness and organisation of the room. We were in a family room, and the beds were large enough to accommodate all 3 people. It was a comfortable stay. Do note that this is a 3-star hotel, which is displayed in front, and not 4 which is indicated on Agoda here. Also, one thing I did notice in both the lobby and room was the perfume used was overwhelming to the point of being offensive. We did get used to it by the second day, and luckily the windows open in the room so we were able to get some fresh air in. The air conditioning worked well as well. Each floor has a water and ice dispenser, which was invaluable.
