“Nice Hotel - Good Stay, but what is it....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Stayed on business for two nights. Room was good size with king bed. Two bottles of water were in the mini fridge each night. I thought good size bathroom, shower in tub. Hard to tell what image the hotel would like to project. You step into this Classy lobby, beautiful styling in the elevators, high priced stores, yet connected to a theme park resort as well as a 10 floor department store.....so pleanty to do right at the hotel.

Nice place to stay, would stay again, although I would have the package where the breakfast is included as the prices for the hotel restaurant and coffee shop and bar are rather pricey. Approximately $30 USD for buffet breakfast and $25 for continental breakfast in bar area

stayed with my family in Aug 2011 for 3nights. Chose this hotel because we wanted to take the kids to Lotte World theme Park. The hotel room was a bit dated, nothing wao, really.
Served the purpose of proximity to the theme park. Has a train station and departmental store, all linked to the hotel. Departmental store has food courts and fast food restaurants and fine cuisine all inside and around the underground station.

Even though the staffs working at the hotel was excellent, I've seen stains in bathtub and dusts on the carpet of the room.
Room was too tiny to unpack 2 large-size luggages at once.
Bathroom was tinier and closets and cabinets in the room and bathroom were not functionally organized, and marble finish didn't give much impression.
Housekeeping seems that they just literally made up the room, when I came back after they came to my room, I still had an empty bottle on the floor which I accidentally dropped under the desk, meaning they even didn't vacuum spaces near to the window area.
There wasn't an 110V power outlet which you need to expect to do prepare for that.
Lobby area didn't have enough seats to wait and greet people, so whenever I need to see someone at the lobby, I had to stand and wait at the hall.
Also, the lobby area was always busy and noisy, well it is supposed to be like that up to a certain level, but it was different from the business and noisiness that I experienced at other 5 star hotel - I felt I was at a market place.
Sorry to add this comment, but while most of the staffs were extremely nice, one who was speaking on the phone talked in the way that I, as a guest, wouldn't expect to hear at their level of training.
Maybe this hotel is better for families, not for business travelers.

Room Tip: Real tiny and narrow hallway from door to the bed.

I was there with my family last December 26 to 30, 2011. Lotte world is just beside the hotel, with department store attached to it. Breakfast is very Korean, but ok. I was able to get late check out at 2 pm. Very good location

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

We stayed here from 15 December till 20 december because we wanted to be near the Lotte World theme park. Hotel rooms are nice and modern and cannot be faulted but you have to pay for Internet which is a bit disappointing so my kids hung out in the lobby which seems to be the only place to get free wifi. We did not eat breakfast there as it was pricey but there are food aplenty at the basement of the shopping centre. In terms of location though this hotel is rather far from Myendong and the rest, Dondemun or Nandemun, you need to take a train and change line, takes about half an hour or so.My kids stayed in the character room for which we paid extra but the room size is rather small and after one extra bed there is hardly any space to move around. So no point opting for this. Other than the fact that it is far from the shopping areas, we enjoyed our stay here.
