Stayed for 2 nights, you never had to worry much when you stay in a holiday inn hotel. Clean room, nice ambience, English speaking staffs. Shuttle bus service from hotel to dongdaemun cultural park station,myeongdong etc. provided. Alternatively get to town by metro,the nearest station is gireum. If you take a cab it costs around 3000 won. No WI-FI service...

The bedroom was large. The size of an average double king in the U.S. Very clean. A couple odd things. The drawn bedroom curtains did not cover the middle third of the window. Seemingly standard in this hotel. Even on a business floor. When asked they replaced them with curtains wide enough to darken the room. Welcome after a long...

Early morning 3 of our arrived on the airport shuttle which stopped at opposite Holiday Inn Seongbuk. We drop our luggage at the hotel reception and take shuttle bus to Dongdaemun market. After shopping at Dongdaemun market, we return to hotel around 5.30pm afternoon to check-in. The staff told us the third person has to pay extra 33,000 won per...

I was doing business at the Korea University and this is the closest hotel. Luckily, it is also a great hotel. The rooms were great, the breakfast in the morning that came with the room, was very good as well. The service was also very good. The entire place was very clean. The only minor set back was the gym,...

Holiday Inn Seongbuk is a nice, clean, pleasant hotel with very friendly staff members who made me feel very welcome. Before I arrived I had asked for an additional cot in the room for a third person, and when we checked-in they had already placed the cot in the room ahead of time so there was no waiting needed. The...

I stayed a few nights in Seoungbuk Holiday Inn. It was as reviewed, comfortable and clean. I had a king junior corner suite which was quite well appointed. The room can be dark but with playing around on the light adjuster box next to the bed, this can be remedied. The room is big and the bathroom as well. The...

We stayed 1 night in a King corner suite. The suite has a living room, work desk with PC system so you don't have to turn on your laptop. Room size is decent, bed is comfortable but the room is on the dark side, need more lighting. Hotel location is not close to any of Seoul attractions. It is located...

Stayed 5 nights in a King bed Junior Suite (the above rating and the review are hence based on that type of room - you may have a different experience in a smaller/cheaper one). Check-in is efficient with very good standards of English. Surprisingly, I was informed that they stay would not qualify for Priority Club points because it had...

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times over the past few years and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The service is very good and the staff go out of their way to help you with anything you need. There is a good restaurant in the hotel, and outside there are numerous traditional Korean restaurants.
