 Front desk was very helpful and spoke English very well. They were very accommodating. Room was very small and had a unpleasant smell - particularly in the bathroom. The bathroom and room were clean. Television service wasn't very good, no movie channels. Plug-in internet service was a good in the room. There was also a hairdryer. You will need power converter if you want to plug in your electronics. Good location - Good hotel if you are not planning on spending a lot of time in the room.
 Rooms not as nice as advertised. Cost was high for room quality.

 People were great and room was nice. Great location. Reasonable price considering you are at the heart of Seoul. No Dining experience because I was upgraded to a way bigger room. So I guess, in the upgrade, they cancelled breakfast. No big deal for me.
 I would have rated Value and Rooms higher, but no internet. Wifi only available in the lobby. Maybe it's a new hotel? Not sure.

                The hotel manager was excellent! We thought we needed to make a last minute reservation online in order to complete some business at the embassy, but just after we checked in, we got a call that we didn't need to stay. The manager allowed us to cancel our reservation at no charge even though the cancellation policy stated that we had to cancel 48 hours in advance. He said he understood our situation. Because it was a last minute booking, we never had the option to cancel 48 hours in advance, so he made an exception. He was so friendly!

                You should be aware that you have to pay for the bottled water, tooth brushes, etc. Not all of the hotel staff speaks English.

                I had booked a roon without window because Seoul hotels were pretty much sold out during the period of my stay. The air in the room was overheated and terribly dry; the air conditioning control didn't work properly, the air was sticky and the roon smelly; the run-off pipes of both the sink and the bathtube were blocked.

                The location was really great, all within walking distance. Once check- in, conveniently I walked to the palace, and insadong, then myendong. With restaurants around (including a McD), stone throw away to City Hall subway, its just strategic. The room was nice and comfy. Clean.

                No breakfast provided, no windows in room but no issues as it was still cold outside. Not sure about summer though.

                location (near center of down town) rather quite,

                bathroom is not wide, noise from refrigerator is annoying a bit.

                Front desk was very helpful and spoke English very well. They were very accommodating. Room was very small and had a unpleasant smell - particularly in the bathroom. The bathroom and room were clean. Television service wasn't very good, no movie channels. Plug-in internet service was a good in the room. There was also a hairdryer. You will need power converter if you want to plug in your electronics. Good location - Good hotel if you are not planning on spending a lot of time in the room.

                Rooms not as nice as advertised. Cost was high for room quality.

                People were great and room was nice. Great location. Reasonable price considering you are at the heart of Seoul. No Dining experience because I was upgraded to a way bigger room. So I guess, in the upgrade, they cancelled breakfast. No big deal for me.

                I would have rated Value and Rooms higher, but no internet. Wifi only available in the lobby. Maybe it's a new hotel? Not sure.
