    Very Good 8.4 From 312 reviews

    Fair 4.0
    Not a 5* hotel if you ask me
    Tiny rooms that are quite non-functional. Hotel looks good in the pictures but I would not consider it a 5 star establishment. Restaurant food was very bad. The location is good.

    Excellent Novotel in Dongtaemun
    The overall experience was excellent. We especially enjoyed the bathing facilities and the gym/sauna. My only minor complaints was the relative lack of closet space for a “king suite” (the two of us were there for 6 nights and there was not enough space to put away our clothes) and that the gym was too hot for working out. Otherwise, this was an top notch hotel and we hope to be coming back in the future.

    New hotel with teething problems.
    We arrived 3 hours before checkin opened. No attempt was made to check if our room was ready. The checkin lobby is located on the top level but you can't get there until checkin opens. We left our bags downstairs and returned 15 minutes after checkin opened and joined a long queue on the top level of the building. The checkin process took far too long. In the room, we received calls for the next door room because the phone lines were wired incorrectly. The water was not connected to the washing machine. We had to ask for towels each day because not enough towels were provided for each person to have one towel. The phone was not fixed during our stay but the washing machine was attended to promptly. Instructions to flush the toilet in English would be useful - there is a remote control for the toilet. The elevator system needs work. We found it easier to walk one flight of stairs to get to the breakfast room or swimming pool. Outdoor rooftop swimming pool is only for adults because of it's proximity to the bar. You have to wear a swimming cap in both pools. In room information says they are free, but reality is you can purchase them from the store. Breakfast was plentiful but there were no posted opening/closing times. We headed to breakfast 5 minutes before opening and the dining room was at least half full. This hotel has only just opened and appears to have teething problems on organisation. Hopefully they will listen to comments and make changes to improve.

    Great experience
    Very new hotel and very comfortable stay. The service is great and the transport is super convenient as well. Although it is located at Dongaemun area, the hotel is very quiet.
