I stayed in the hotel for three days and I could not able find anything that missing in basic amenities list.

Good sized rooms with very comfortable beds and pillows. Convenient for travelling to and from airport as shuttle bus stops right outside. However, if you want to go into centre of Soeul this hotel is quite far out and is a ten minute walk to nearest subway. Lots of shops and coffee shops nearby. Staff were excellent and always went...

We stayed in this hotel for a week during our trip to Soul. The hotel is on the way to the Incheon airport and the airport shuttle buse service has a designated stop at the hotel, which was very convenient.

Stayed here for a nite in Aug 2015. The hotel is not located in the central of Seoul. Also a bit far for the subway though taxi in Seoul is not that expensive. Many shops and eateries nearby. Rooms looks a bit outdated and needs an upgrade. Rates are reasonable. Overall average stay may not be ideal for visiting central...

We were provided with a nice and comfortable room in the Holiday Inn Seongbuk Seoul. However, even with its Seoul name, it is distant away from the center of Seoul. It is more than a 10 minute walking distance to the subway station near Korea University. From that subway station, you must pass several stations until you get to city...
