Clean, basic hotel with comfortable bed in a great location. Close to transportation, lots of bars and restaurants and between the two main temples in Seoul.

Great spot for short stay.
This hotel is in a perfect spot, the room is comfortable and clean and a great value for the price. The hotel is clean and staff spoke english so communication was very easy. Great options for food even right outside front doir so if you are staying for a night or two plenty of great places to eat. Easy to get to from airport bus or subway.

Okay Hotel
It's an average hotel. It doesn't provide free bottled water but there's a 7-11 shop across the street.

Staff isn't as helpful, and local calls cost me $77,000 won. But for the price it's comfortable and close to shopping areas, restaurants & a subway entrance

Clean, modern and well-located
This hotel is everything you might expect from Accor brands, clean, modern and totally sufficient. Location was perfect for us. One metro stop from Imperial Palace and easy connections to pretty much everything else. Short walk to Insadong-gil, the perfect strolling street with shops and restaurants. Paris Baguette a few doors down. Cab driver from Seoul Station had to call hotel for directions, so have their number handy. Hotel shuttle to station and major sights a definite plus (though it didn't work out for us to use it, timing wise). Room was on the small side for our family of three, but that is to be expected whenever a rollaway bed is required.
