    I was surprised by all the favorable comments given by your guest. I was your guest from June 19 to 22. Overall the staffs are friendly. The one thing that upset me is that we have 4 luggages. We asked for help but got a reply that there is no luggage assistance. I saw in one of your guest's comment, that there is one instance that they helped carry the luggages down, of a lady guest. That is very helpful and caring of that staff. Nevertheless, we were not helped, and no care on our circumstances. I am 62. That is what upset me. So when I see almost all of the reviews appreciative of your services, I was dumbfounded and makes me look like a liar. I then realized that there are push carts for luggages during my stay, which the guy in the information on the ground floor did not even bother to offer or suggest that we use that during our check in. All he can say is we do not have luggage assistance. I was really upset and disappointed. Other than that, everything is okay. The extra service you do not offered sometimes you should take into consideration of the circumstances of your guest. That I think will be truly 'great' service. I used to booked at Lotte Hotel Seoul, just adjacent to your hotel, but I was attracted to your price and the big savings i can saved and thought I would make use of my Accorplus privileges. I have no problem with your hotel, maybe only the aircon temperature, which is also a problem to many of your guests, but foremost your service. I am just after your good service of helpfulness and care which you bragged on your flyer, brochure or on the internet that you give the best service.
