Hotel, very clean, bed very comfortable and spacious. The restaurant food are very nice specially the spaghetti. buffet breakfast have a lot of varieties and delicious.highly recommended. But Not walking distances to myeongdong shopping area. However, very convenient to get taxi which cost around 5000 won one way to shopping centre and the hotel location also easily access to the subways.

The location is very strategic, it is located close to 2 subway stations on different line, convenient to get around the city. The front desk officers speak English well and are willing to accommodate our early check in requests. Highly recommend!

How did this hotel get best of the best? The pictures are an exaggeration. The room was dingy, the AC was not working (I had to leave the patio door open), and the WiFi was sitting on top of the TV! The lights were also controlled by some panel on the night stand. I do not recommend. Moving tomorrow to another hotel.

Money well spent. I chose the hotel base on the overwhelming discount provided by Trup.com on 1111 Sale! Location wise the hotel is super near to subway exit, even if it’s raining it would not hinder u much Twin Room is super spacious, equipped with coffee maker, LG styler& sufficient tv channels for you to spend the chilly winter nights We can’t really appreciate the balcony, but it will be useful during other seasons Service is crisp & effective. Reception area is spacious, with a Wow card kiosk & plenty of local maps. Every floor is equipped with an ice machine, water dispenser & microwave

Here are my points for my visit to Seoul!!!! 1) Check-in Arrived on early morning but was told that room not ready. Fair enough as per any other hotel. Met up with close relative who has arrived a couple of days earlier. When we met them, we were told that they arrived early as well but was offered a super early check in if they write a good review of the hotel. Seriously?!!!!!! How do you review a hotel when you have not stayed yet???? This was offered to several other guest as well. Hmm.. why not me? maybe just my luck. Oh well 2) Room logistics There is no clear indications to how the rooms were managed in terms of housekeeping. One instance, it depends on the housekeeping mood as to whether to give us water bottles for the room. But I casually ask for the same. To which they give bit some of them say we should reuse the bottle to fill up at the station near the level lift lobby. Errrr.... Isn't that a bit unhygienic to reuse a plastic bottle over and over again? 3) Front Desk The Front Desk houses a bunch of weird people on certain days. Some are absolutely useless if I may say so. I have seen guest coming in with little kids and big bags and no such offer to assist was made even though these guests were struggling. The information given out were of variations. For example the mini bar was listed with prices and after a day I requested that it be removed so I can use the space. I was then told. that the mini bar was for us to consume for free. When we did so, it topped up again. I felt weird and then I queried again on the 4th Day and the minibar chargeable. Luckily we didn't consume anymore. The walls of the rooms were quite thin as we can hear the neighbours hustling and grunting at times. 4) Storage of luggage for short trip to Busan and back to PJ We stayed for 11 days and was off to Busan for 3 days and would return for another 8 days of stay at PJ. My close relative did similar but different dates. We were told that the Hotel could hold our main luggage for us so that we do not have to carry everything to Busan. This we were very grateful. My relative stayed with 3 kids. When she was checkin out in the morning to head for Busan for a couple of days, she came down to the reception struggling with the bags and the 2 front desk guys just looked and had no initiative to assist. Where is the Hospitality standard? or even worse.. where is the common sense? When she asked where she should place the bags as offered by the Hotel, the front desk guy just pointed it to a corner. No tags. No indication of where to keep them. This I strongly believe is very unprofessional standard even for a 3 star hotel. Let alone 4 star. I was then worried that I would have the same treatment when its my turn in a few days. True enough, when it's my turn to fly off to Busan for a couple of days, the guys at the front desk had the same attitude. SO I insisted for bag tags so that I can claim my bags when I return. I asked him to show me where it would be stored. The reply was "it will; be stored and is there a problem?" or words to that effect. I told him I need to be ensured that it will be stored properly. Reluctantly I showed the storage space. 5) 11 mins late to check out and a fee was charged My relative was checking out on the day she was flying home. She came down with all the luggages and her 3 kids. Check out time was 1200hrs. She came down 1211hrs. She was charged 11000KRW for late checkout. Seriously? Every hotel gives a bit of lee-way when people check out. Even the hotel I stayed in Busan gives us some lee-way time to check out given the number of lifts they had and luggages. But this is ridiculous. She messaged us when we were in Busan. Upon our return to PJ, I checked with the front desk on the same. I was surprised to hear that the hotel do not charge guest like this. So why was she charged for 11 mins which she had to take to come down with 3 kids and luggages? Receipts are available if there's doubt. This is baffling!!! There is so much inconsistency where the hotel logistics are concerned. This doesn't earn or justify a 4 star. Even budget motels do not do this to you. 6) Staff The Bell guys/lobby man, the housekeepers and the Engineering peeps that my family and I encountered have been great. No issues Just to highlight one particular Front desk lady, Ms Ji-Hyun Lee who was very instrumental in making our stay as comfortable and good as much as possible. Her response time and type of reply to queries are spot on and are commendable. She is the only one we can see very consistent in her managing the guests and all queries that we seen and heard. Another older gentleman whom we encountered one night at the Front Desk was also commendable. I cannot remember his name unfortunately but I Definitely remember his face. 7) Late checkout After the mishap with my relative with the 11 mins late charge, I had to check how I can do a late checkout as my flight was 2300hrs. Ms Ji-Hyun Lee assisted us and we were able to check out at 1850hrs. Don't get me wrong. We are NOT freeloaders. We were willing to pay for the late checkout. Ms Ji-Hyun Lee's assisted us and we paid what was necessary. 8) Hotel location It's a good location. Not smacked in the city but walkable about 15-20 mins. My family and my relatives family's speed at walking that is. Train station close by via 2 different colour lines. 24hrs convenience stores around. Pizza Hut etc. Safety is more or less assured as the neighbourhood was brightly listed. 9) Rooms Rooms were decent as we stayed in a Triple Premium Room. TV channels have English movies or shows to watch. As the TVs are in line with the channel ratings, you need to adjust the ratings level on the tv itself. Want teach you here though. The whole stay was pleasant very much attributed the staff I mentioned above. I would only come back again the attitude and consistency is looked upon by the management. Hope the hotel management is reading this. I am coming back to Seoul again in the near future. Would like to see if any changes would be made to assure me that it's worth staying again
