Excellent location and within walking distance from the Lotte Department Store. I stayed three nights. The room was clean and functional. The room decor is old and the carpet worn. The windows in my room did not seal well, so there was a draft when sitting close to the window. Also windows did not prevent the street noice and especially...

This is my first time to stay at this hotel. The location is great and close to main shopping area - Myeong-dong. From the Incheon Airport, you can take the airport limosim bus (6701) to Lotte Hotel station and take 1 min walk to the Hotel President. The room space is quite okay for business trip.

We asked for and were given a family room, good enough for our family of 2 adults and 2 pre-teens. Facing the N Seoul Tower at the 28th floor, we decided we got a room with one of the best views. Situated right across City Hall, Line 2 of the subway was just a few steps from the doorway. KAL...

The lobby and restaurant areas are nice but the rooms are dated. The rooms have stained carpet (I was in three different rooms) and are,by North American standards,small although sufficient for one or two people.. The wall paneling also looks old as does the furniture in the rooms. On a positive note the windows open which is just as well...

2 mins walk from subway and the Lotte Hotel and department store. Neat, clean and tidy; hotel concierge left much to be desired, but would highly recommend accommodations for the value. Note: hotel occuppies a few floors in an office building (it's not as weird as it sounds.)

A basic hotel with clean rooms. Smoking in the rooms doesn't seem to be regulated so cigarette smell was disturbing. The prices in the cafe were very expensive.... eat somewhere else. The location was excellent... close to a variety of things to do, shopping and restaurants.

Our room was fairly nice, the hotel is centrally located. The breakfast buffet had a great deal of variety. However, the window in our room did not seal well, and there was significant street noise both Friday and Saturday nights, even though we were on the 16th floor. Both nights involved people dropping metal on concrete in the process of...
