    « Lovely 2nd visit »

    This hotel is excellent everything about it we liked as before on our previous visit. The rooms are very good we stayed in the Executive Suites on the 14 th floor the views across Seoul are fabulous. Food very good prices for mini bar are OK. The staff are very helpful and everything went very smooth with checking in etc. Would definitely use this hotel again if we needed to visit Seoul again.

    « Great modern hotel »

    Great accommodations in a exciting area for local techies. Street food across the street in alleyways to the train station. And train station is only 2 short blocks away that will get you anywhere. Gangnam station is 4 stops away. Not much of a lobby but the rooms are excellent.

    « Nice Hotel, Good Location »

    Stayed here for business for 1 week. One of the nicer best westerns in the world I would think (way above anything in North America). The rooms are quite large, with soft beds and pillows, complimentary water and 1 x 110V AC outlet. I found that the air conditioning wasn't great (probably my only compliant about this hotel). There is a Starbucks on the ground floor, and the breakfast buffet on the 2nd floor did not disappoint (was a good breakfast buffet by North American standards). Located close to many restaurants and bars, about 1 hour from Incheon airport. If you need a hotel in this area of Seoul, I can't recommend this place enough.

    « Modern & efficient with a great supermarket nearby! »

    I stayed here on two occasions, both for only one night each, at either end of my business trip. The hotel was clean and modern, and staff were efficient and friendly. The buffet breakfast was average as the variety was limited, but there was a chef on hand to cook fresh eggs anyway you liked. The wifi was decent. The location is not in central Seoul, but there are an abundance of shops, places to eat and drink, a very big supermarket (E-Mart) and a subway station nearby, making everything very convenient. There is a Starbucks and a pharmacy adjacent to the lobby and an airport bus stops out the front. There was absolutely nothing to complain about, I'd stay here again.

    « A very relaxing place! »

    I stayed at the hotel for 7 days and was very refreshing. It has a large supermarket and other shops which was convenient. The staff from the cleaners to the front desk were very helpful. One even taught me a few Korean phrases :)

    « Very good location and comfortable room »

    Good security and front desk service was friendly and helpful. Lack of varieties for breakfast. Wifi with good speed was available in the room as well as in the public area. The Hotel 's location is excellent. The hotel located near a MRT station, a local supermarket - eMart (very good price), a lot of local shops nearby selling food, fashion and accessories for ladies.

    « Nice and Cozy Hotel, nearby culinary spots »

    My wife and I travel in group tour. Our room is spacious and have nice city street view. Within a walking distance to food arcades that open until midnight. We really enjoy the evening culinary walk. You must try nearby pork barbeque restaurant, very delicious. The toilet is really innovative, with options for cleaning up and flushing ??. Breakfast is fine but it seems that they are lack of waiters at that time. Really recommended hotel if you plan to stay in Seoul. Two thumbs up.

    « Good for a conference stay »

    The room was comfortable and quiet. My only major complaint was that the A/C was not working well. But if I left my window open there was too much traffic noise. Finally the third night I asked for fan and that did the trick. Should have asked for one the first night. Lots of stores and restaurants nearby and the airport shuttle stop is directly in front of the hotel.

    « Decent hotel in East Seoul »

    Stayed here on business and had a good stay. Room of good size and well appointed. Price was reasonable and staff pleasant albeit with little English. Breakfast ok with reasonable selection but as to be expected with a smaller western selection. Restaurant ok, but again orientated to local cuisine. About one hour taxi ride to Incheon airport.

    « Very nice hotel »

    Great and clean hotel in very good neighbourhood. Close to metro line no 2 and to limousine bus to the airport. Very nice and helpful front desk stuff, who let me check-in before check-it time. Room was very nice, quite and clean. Mattress was little bit too soft but i had really good sleep. Big plus was scale in room so i could check my luggage before departure:)

    « Comfortable and clean »

    The hotel is neat, clean and orderly. In other words, it is like most Seoul 3 and 4 star business hotels. It is not the best hotel in Seoul but it does everything in a most satisfactory way. The rooms are comfortable. The bathroom is functional and well-maintained. The buffet breakfast is adequate, although a little more variety of fruit would be good, The staff are polite, well-groomed and helpful. I was on an executive floor. However, the executive lounge has been closed. One slightly odd thing is that the airconditioning of rooms is turned off in April (or some of April), and it could get stuffy in the room. Opening the window meant street noise as the hotel is on a busy street. One glitch while I was staying was that I was caught in a stuck lift/elevator. It took about 45 minutes (it was late at night) to get us out as we were stuck between floors. The hotel staff were apologetic, but these things do sometimes happen. Perhaps the staff could provide a bit more information to those in stuck lifts, so that we know what is happening. The hotel is convenient for the airport bus (6004). The local area has plenty of coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Staff in most of these do try to help English speakers. I would happily stay at the hotel again.

    « VERY AVERAGE »

    Not sure how people can give this place a very good rating as it is clearly not at that level but on the same token it is not bad either just very average. Or perhaps its just my expectations. Stay here for 4 nights in March on a business trip. Front desk service was very friendly, helpful and they spoke fluent english. However, the wait staff at the restaurant including the supervisor/ manager have room to improve on their courtesy'ness and attentiveness to guests . I am not saying they are rude, but they generally lack the acknowledgement of your presence. Having travelled to Korea many times, this seems surprising given their excellent service culture. Gym is small with limited equipment but at least whilst I was there, not many guests used the facility thus was fine during my stay. Sufficient enough for me to maintain my routine. The A/C in my room was HOT, literally, despite adjusting the thermostat to no avail. When I informed the hotel, their technician came to check, couldn't fix it so asked me to open the window. Which is fine with the exception of the constant construction noise that propagated into my room despite being on the top floor. I was trying to work in the room, so it was not helpful with all that noise. Few hours later, my room then stung like cigarettes and on closer inspection the smell was coming from the A/C vent. Clearly whoever is smoking, the smoke has made its way into the ducting into the rooms. It turns out it wasn't an isolated case as a few of us had the same issue at precisely the same time. This took place over a couple of days. Breakfast at the restaurant is lacking variety and they are slow in topping up the food. I had to prompt them couple of times, after standing there for 1 or 2 minutes (another example of non attentiveness).

    « Nice »

    The rooms are standard with a spacious bathroom and corresponding amenities with the exception of a dental kit, which you can buy for 3000 won, a price higher than that of smaller shops within walking distance across the road. The surrounding area is rather quiet but there are nice shops nearby, such as Tony Moly and Yankee Candles. There is also a variety of restaurants nearby which the concierge is happy to recommend based on your taste and preference. The breakfast is very nice, better than what I expected, with a large variety of food. The staff speak English, which is great for travellers. There is an airport shuttle, 6004, which costs 10,000 won per person. It takes around an hour and twenty minutes to get to the airport. Overall this hotel is very much worth it!

    « Best Western in Non Westerners country.... Guess what ? Its still the Best »

    Great hotel with great name and friendly Korean English speaking front desk make all the different. The location absolutely great - near to few convenience shop with 24 hrs services. E Mart at walking distance to the left of the hotel.

    « A Good Business Choice Hotel in Seoul »

    This was my 2nd visit to this hotel, the visits about 2 years apart. The hotel seemed even better this time. The hotel is super clean, well maintained, quiet rooms with adequate closet and drawer space, good wifi connections. Breakfast is very varied with many western choices and with eggs made to order. Dinner can be their typical buffet, again with many interesting choices, or dishes ordered from the menu. Location is in a heavily trafficked area with lots of local restaurant choices and shopping. One final plus is that the Incheon airport bus stops right outside their door.

    « A little local flavor »

    This place is far from the tourist areas that are congested with pushy travelers. That's what makes it perfect. There is also an awesome food street within a 100 meters that had two really good restaurants on it. It is within 200 meters of the line two subway, which can get you into downtown within a half an hour The room was very clean, and was cleaned everyday that we were here. Only thing that I could complain about is that you have to pay for toothbrushes and toothpaste. Then again, every country is different on this. I would like to recognize one of the young ladies working at the desk who is a baseball fanatic (Sorry I never got her name). My wife and myself being foreigners, it seemed impossible to buy tickets for the Nexon Heroes baseball game. While, it was sold out online, she went out of her way to help us. We were able to get to the game, buy tickets, and had a great time. Without her doing more than what her job required, we probably wouldn't have the experience. Overall, we were very happy with this hotel. Really nothing to complain about.

    « Reasonable for the price paid. »

    Short review. Reasonable for bead and breakfast; but nothing fancy. Staff at the front was welcoming upon check in, I was wondered why he/she didn't ask for my ID.. who knows I could have been a threat to the hotel?

    « Clean, Convenient and Good Breakfast »

    We were very pleased with this hotel as it is situated at a location where food and shopping are easily available. The room was well equipped and house-keeping did a good job. There was free wifi at the lobby as well as the room and the signal was strong everywhere. Buffet breakfast was good with a great variety of Eastern and Western spread. But we hope the reception could be more friendly. We stayed for two nights but the personnels at the reception did not wish us good morning when we walked pass. Our tour guide told us that Koreans are not too confident in speaking English but staff in the hospitality business should do better.

    « Nice, clean and comfortable for business trip! »

    Nice hall, Very clean, Excellent service, Wi-Fi, net, TV, parking for free, Good location: metro line 2, a lot of restaurants around. Excellent for modest business tripper :) English speaking staff. Have nothing to say about hotel restaurant (prefer to try authentic food places).

    « Definitely not 5 star »

    This is definitely not a 5 star hotel. Maybe 3.5 star at best. I was on a non-smoking floor, but you can smell the smoke from the floor below in the room. The room service was also terrible. Nachos cost 20,000 won ($20) and consisted of corn chips, this sauce with a few pieces of beef mince and then separate servings of sour cream (tasted like watery cream), guacamole and salsa. Melted cheese was on maybe 3 chips. Then the 'cheesecake' (10,000 won / $10) was actually just a butter sponge cake. I like a firm bed, but the bed was beyond firm to hard.
