We stayed for one night. Nice room, enough space, quiet, good bed, clean, very friendly service, not so easy to find for the first time by taxi. Better to go by subway and then walk according to map. There is a good Italian restaurant no far off, slightly expensive, nice atmosphere.

Hill House is one of our favourite places to stay. Yes, the hotel is at the top of a laneway that is a bit steep. No, it hasn't got world-class views. But what it does have is 'location'! It's close to N Seoul Tower, Hoehyeon station, Namdaemun Market and Myeongdong. If you like walking it takes only about 20 minutes...

We recommend this hotel to Seoul visitors. This is a good hotel with good breakfast served by a very good lady Ms. Yoo Zangmi! Rooms are clean and cozy; price is reasonable: and, the hotel personnel are extra nice too!

I stayed here twice. It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood nearby Namdaemun Market and the shops in Myeongdong. Clean rooms, some bigger than others. Not luxury, but fine to us (budget). Instead of the free breakfast in the hotel I would recommend Starbucks, a 5 minute walk of the hotel, right in front of Shinsegue.

Had a great time staying in this cozy hotel. Near small restaurants that serve delicious Korean food. The best thing is that its location is near Myeongdong and the subway. Friendly staff most especially the kitchen crew.

the room is spacious and very comfortable, especially there is a table, handy to use laptops. It is convenient to cafe and groceries. Within walking distance to Ming-dong and metro stations, but with a little bit climbing! With nice breakfast! We enjoy our stay.

We booked this hotel through AirAsia Call Centre for a Hotel+Flight package for 5 pax from 28 May - 2 June 2016 & requested for an extra bed for the 5th person. The request was not conveyed to the Hotel & we were not given the extra bed as requested. However, the staff was nice as my young child was...

I've stayed at the Hill House Hotel twice. It is in a good location, but not the easiest to find if you are new to Seoul. Make sure you have some directions or the address on your phone before you try to find it. There are a lot of cool things nearby, restaurants, a cool mall downtown, and N Seoul...

I loves their outdoor lounge. It`s so nice to be there in the evening drinking wine =) Very nice&friendly stuff! Great location near Hoehyeon station (about 5 mins walking), it`s very comfortable when you come from Incheon or Gimpo airports. It was a little problem with hot water, if somebode use it on lower floor you get cold water =)...
