I stay at this hotel often, normally at least 20 to 30 nights per year. The hotel is getting tired and in need of an update. The beds are extremely hard and the breakfast buffet is terrible. Behind Lake Hotel are 2 Izakaya's. The one which is slightly further away is one of the best restaurants in the world. It... More

Nothing special here, but a really great location. Breakfast had a really small selection and did officially start at 7.30. I found that a bit late, when I have to go to work and even at 7.35 they just started brewing the coffee and 7.45 I got a cup. Checking out was quite strange, since I asked about the bus... More

Lake Hotel is not a traditional western hotel. It is however extremely comfortable and located in a convenient position close to many restaurants, coffee shops. LOTTE world Theme Park and the New LOTTE Tower Mall. The rooms are large with vinyl floors (extremely clean) large bathroom bath and separate walk in shower. The beds are firm but surprisingly comfortable. Rooms... More

The Hotel has a great location for amenities in front of yhe lake and Lotte playground. The view on the Lotte tower is outstanding. Room with very good space and Internet connection. Breakfast a bit poor. Credit cards with chip only are not welcone.

The hotel is in a good location about a pleasant ten minutes walk to the Metro and to the Lotte department and Amusement park. Quite a few restaurants around and also a 711 just below the hotel. Neighborhood is very safe and I did not feel vulnerable whilst walking. One odd thing is in the room the lighting is not... More

Hotel Lake is a perfect place for short stay in Seoul. Great location, clean rooms and nice staff. Near to shopping and many restaurants. Moderate price, good deal for the money. You can't go wrong by staying here.
