I stayed in room 718 from 04Feb17 to 08Feb17. The room had a terrible smell when we first checked in, like the smell of a sewage. We called the hotel front desk and they have advised that the only room available is one level down, on the 6th floor and they have mentioned that it may be noisy on level...

This is a fantastic modern hotel in the heart of downtown Seoul. The service is very good and the rooms are large and clean. The breakfast buffet is almost too large with full western and Asian fares. There is direct access to the subway system and a block walk to Myung-dong shopping area which is full of retail and restaurants....

This is seriously the best place to put your money, Lotte, Plaza and other hotels in this area will offer similar pricing, but will not mount up to the quality you will receive at Chosun. Their in house restaurants are considered much higher than its competitors in the area and the hotel is not built to only maximize their room...
