Location opposite city hall, well connected by subway and taxis. Can walk to lot of top attractions in the city. Restaurants have a special menu for solo diners :), helps have a proper meal. Pricey but nice bar though in the basement. Friendly staff.

Was in Seoul recently to catch the Cherry Blossom. Hotel is centrally located and along the many routes run by the KAL airport transfer services. Getting to the hotel is a breeze at an affordable price of Korean Won $15,000 per pax. Hotel is linked by underpass to the subway, Lotte Department Store and MyeongDong Shopping street. Probably about 10-15mins...

I doubt that many travelers could want for more. The rooms may be a little high tech for those who avoid the internet and smart phones? A small touch screen beside the bed controls everything! Curtains, lights, TV the whole lot. Cabin style shower with curtained glass panel to the main bedroom made me wish I wasn't traveling alone! Funky...

Perfect location. Minutes away from the subway and walkable to Myeongdong area. Price is abit steep but service was great and room was nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. Loved the bed and the view of the cityhall! Was a delight to be there during winter and seeing the iceskaters enjoying themselves. Highly recommend this hotel!

Location is excellent! Walking distance to Myeong-dong & also the Palace. Stayed in a suite and room was very well sized and huge bathroom!
