Stayed in December for week-long work trip. Chose hotel based on it's central location. It is literally across the street from City Hall Plaza, couldn't be any more central to places in Seoul, very close to the temples, almost atop the City Hall metro, very close to many shoppping areas, etc. Room was small but well set up, had free fast internet and OK cable TV. Overall, a very typical business hotel in East Asia, no problems at all but not anything special. At ~US$200 / night, not an especially good deal, but not bad for the area (the comparable Westin across the street was like $250).
Can be a little noisy when there are demonstrations at City Hall, but during the winter they have a skating rink set up, which limits the size that can gather there.
A good tip - hotel is on the tunnel system, so easy to get around without having to go out into the cold and rain.
