Booked this hotel as a last minute alternative as i made a wrong booking date for another hotel and it was completely full! Royal Hotel is located in Myeong dong, not really near the train station but further in, nearer to eul-jiro 1 ga station, and Myeong dong cathedral, which is away from the craziness of everything yet close enough to all the shopping and food.
Hotel staff were polite and helpful, well-versed in Japanese and Chinese. Hotel also offers free shuttle service to airport, namsan tower etc, which i utilized and found extremely helpful. Though other reviewers said no free wifi was included, i was able to tap on the lobby wifi for free (my room was on the fifth floor)
Only slight disappointment was that i was given a smoking room. I hadn't specified it in my haste during booking but i was disappointed that this wasn't clarified upon my check-in. Also, when i asked for a air freshener, their staff just gave me a spray, which didn't really clean out the smoke smell. Nevertheless i agree it was error on my part, so i didn't complain and just settled with the room i was given with.More
