Great location to the city centre of Seoul, located close by Myeongdong which only 5-10 walking distance. Gym will be at the other tower next to the hotel, you have to walk thru outdoor (most of the people do) for gym and swimming pool etc. Somehow, not as 'friendly' if you plan to be the easiest to get to gym...

We spent 6 days there in April and we loved our stay. First of all, the location is perfect if you want to visit the many beautiful palaces in Seoul. The hotel is very attractive and we were glad we chose what they call a Premier suite, which is 100 sqft more than a regular room of 323 sqft. We...

The hotel was conveniently located in downtown, just on top of the City Hall subway stop, and close to some tourist sites and shopping. The hotel itself is great, and the staff was very engaging and welcoming. I really enjoyed my stay.

This hotel is located practically on top of the Subway stop for City Hall. It could not be more convenient. The hotel, itself, is very nice, and all of the staff were extremely helpful. The bathroom does have a curtain covering a window into the shower; however, we were able to manage privacy even with 3 people in the room....

The location of the hotel has high accessibility to most of the tourist attraction in Seoul. Myung Dong is just next to the hotel and it was located just outside the exit of the subway station. The room, amenity, and food were delightful. Importantly the staff here is very considerable, front desk manager Mr. Brian Kim was very helpful to...

Wondeful boutique-like hotel in a superb location with subway entrance and airport shuttle bus pickup/drop-off point right in the back of the property! Overlooking the Presidential Palace and easy walking distance to Myeong-dong shopping area as well! I got upgraded to a junior suite: while the space is not super big, it is nicely decorated with beautiful modern furnishing and...
