The hotel is quite small compared to other Holiday Inns but it is quite comfortable. Spoken English among staff is very basic. So it may be a while to get through what you wish if it is slightly more complex. The rooms are clean and more than adequate. A couple of complimentary bottle water is provided each day. Around the... More

It's the smallest Holiday Inn I've ever stayed. One bus stop is 10 meters aways from it, but if you don't know Korean, you don't know how to take bus. The closest Metro station is about 15 minutes' away by walking. So it's not so convenient to go out and come back to hotel. When I arrived, the front desk... More

Hotel room was wonderful. Not very big but felt comfortable and warm. Lots of good eateries nearby which are open until late at night. Staff were generally friendly but their standard of English was not exactly the best, and I had to take out my phone to use google translate. Breakfast was tasty and had a wholesome variety of choices.... More

To my surprise, this HI turned out to be an excellent fully equipped hotel with all the amenities one would need, which included a washlet, pairs of slippers, bathrobes, dental, manicure, hair, lotion, and sewing kits, three complimentary bottles...

I had a good stay here. The facilities were modern and the location is right smack in the CBD. The breakfast buffet is tasty. Oh, and I still keep the see through umbrella that they so thoughtfully provide.
