Beds are comfortable and clean. rooms are large enough for the triple room for 3 pax. Toilets are clean and large enough. Concierge and front desk are helpful and friendly if you require more water just ask for it.

However the rooms are not sound proof so if children are playing at the corridor, do wear your ear plugs.

The Recenz is a fairly good for the price hotel. The room are nice and comfortable, though their are some dust throughout the entire room. The food isn't that great. Maybe it's because Korean's food culture for breakfast is a bit different. The tivi's can mostly acess to your average streaming network. My room doesn't have any good views to the city. Over all, a good place for you to stay in a budget.

If you look from the outside street, you will say "wow" for this very tall building. However, the inside service is not quite as classy as it may look. Because there is not enough staff at the Front Desk as well as the Restaurant.

The Front Desk looks messy with a lot of papers, documents, luggages, hangers, clothes..

The Restaurant is operated with staff in random uniform. Not uniformity!

I would recommend this hotel for the location and well equipped rooms. They are very worthy, I love it!

we check in for 6 nights stay during our trip to seoul, stay at room 1802
Room size, not really small and not big too
showers works ok, heater working properly which really help during winter
Access from incheon airport : take airport limousine bus 6013 to janghanpyeong station cost 10.000 won, when u reach the station u need to walk about 10 minutes to reach hotel.
if u are taking subway, take line 5 (purple line) get off at janghanpyeong station exit 1 but i’m not recommend to use subway if u bring large suitcase or luggage because u will climb a lot of stairs😫😫
so if possible from airport take bus then when u explore seoul take subway!
hotel surrounded : there is convenient store CU and lotteria also seven eleven
which really nice
since this hotel is newly open, i hope my review will help those new bookers
breakfast at second floor, choice of food good but very crowded around 7-8 am because of group tour

We took a land arrangement tour and we were booked at this hotel. We were told that it's a newer hotel. Since our tour operator arranged our check in prior, we got our keys immediately.

Our room was very very small. There's not much wiggle room so we cannot move around. The bed was very close to the window for space. Bed linens were clean. Bathroom was clean. Wifi is fine.

Free breakfast was bad. Not many choices, and the same food every morning, very boring!

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my friends nor will I stay here if I visit Korea again.

If you walk out of this hotel and turn left, the metro Janghanpyeong station is literally 3 minutes walk on the same side of the road , and no roads need be crossed.
That station is line 5, and you can take it for 3 stops to get to line 2 which will take you to all the central stations
Just outside the hotel is a convenience store that is 24 hrs and has snacks,and all else.
Nearby the hotel, there are a few restaurants, some 24 hrs open.
Regarding the hotel, it is brand new and feels like it. Everything is clean and polished and smart. This is a business hotel.
My room was on 12 floor and was fantastically designed,minimalist,modern,comfortable,bright.
So ac was in the ceiling and quiet and worked perfectly, lighting and ac control was by the bed. Lighting was excellent and modern. Bed was big and comfortable. Room was of a reasonable size, with nice space to put your bag.
The window was huge with a great view of Seoul and few mountains behind. There was sufficient plug sockets,nice new lcd tv with some English movie channels, no news channels as of yet. The internet was super fast and my room had its own router.
Room was very cleverly designed, providing everything well, very cosy and comfortable. Basically a perfect brand new room which is very rare.
Bathroom again was excellently designed with same attention to detail. Walk in shower was on right, toilet to the left and sink with good mirror,lighting and sink space in middle.
Only thing is water pressure could have been a little stronger , but was sufficient.
And all this was for a price of approximately 30£ with agoda per night in a 4 star hotel in central area of Seoul.
There was a restaurant on 2nd floor that did buffet breakfast and lunches for a very reasonable price that I didn't get to try.
Overall excellent

It’s a great looking hotel but far from tourist spots. It is on main road so easy to get a taxi. Very close to the subway station. The city view is ok. You are about 10 min taxi ride from Seoul. Hotel is more designed for families.

As a frequent traveler to seoul, I strongly recommend this hotel.
This hotel is well managed brand new hotel with a friendly staff. Clean rooms with a cool simple feel. I was given the treatment as I got in 5 star hotel. Close to subway station is plus. I will definitely make this hotel my top choice. Definitely stay here whenever I go to Seoul.

The hotel caters to so many tourists from different countries,its always busy. I commend all the staff,because they are all hardworking. And even their hotel is busy,they still accomodate guests smiling. Though the breakfast is always the same menu,but its delicious so its ok. Near convenience store and bus stop.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room is clean and tidy, but feel a little bit outdated. I stayed in another hotels near Dongdaemun before, and I found out that many other hotels provide more modern amenities compare to this hotel.

Breakfast was good, although they tend to serve the same food everyday.

During my stay, wifi didn’t work properly. Sometimes the signal was loss, and reconnecting took some times.

Overall, if you just stay for one or two night only, then its okay to use this hotel.

I'm sorry I cannot help you. I took the land tour and was promptly picked up from the airport by our tour guide. I suggest that you call your hotel and ask for airport transfers. Good luck
