HEY Backpackers: In the nightlife district of Seoul

I stayed in this hostel in fall of 2009 for 2 nights with a small group of 4 people. It costs about $15-$20 a night to stay here if you're in a dorm room, and they very much accomodate several group sizes: there are priovate rooms for 2, 3 and 4 people, and then mixed (co-ed) dorms for 6 and 8 people. Its a good place to stay if your intent in Seoul is to go out, dance, and party. Its located in the centre of the Hongdae area, very close to Zen Bar. Wifi and linen included, but not breakfast.

Feels like a second home: Hongdae Guesthouse

I stayed here for 3 nights in the fall of 2009 for a Halloween trip to Seoul. I was in an 8 bed mixed dorm which only cost about the equivilent of $20. This included a free breakfast of toast, cereals and juice. Wifi is also included.The hostel isn't a small building on its own, but rather a collection of rooms located in one very large (appears to be some sort of office) building. The owners are extremely friendly and kind, which is why I say it feels like home.

If you're coming to Seoul to shop, party or visit the touristy things, then this is a good place to stay as its only a short walk from the Hongdae area, close to three universities, and not far from the metro station. Their website is very informative with exact location information, current contact info and photo gallery.

City Park Hotel,Seoul: Small,well located and friendly

This hotel is really small and they don't know much English,but it has all you need,and is slap bang across the road from the Changdeokgong Palace.It is 10 minutes walk from 2 different subway stations and has a/c,free wifi and wired internet and is comfortable. THe breakfast is useless but there is a great coffee bar right next door and plenty of restaurants nearby. We enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic location.

MVL: Excellent and brand new hotel on the ocean

New hotel. The rooms are very nice with a view of either the show or the Bay of Yeosu. Bathrobe, slippers, hi-tech equipment. By cons, almost exclusively Korean channels. The hotel is very clean and has several restaurants. That the 26th floor offers a magnificent view of the bay and piano bar in the evening. a service ...

Great location for the hotel. MVL offers beautiful views, a short walk trail leading to the water, and a short drive from many great eats. The room was cleaned well, good facilities and a nice view. The thick down comforters were a little too hot for June weather,...

Fraser Place Central: Serviced Apartment

5 minutes from City Hall station. Airport bus stop 20 meters away.

Spacious and very clean. The unit was equipped with a washer/dryer, kitchen, utensils, etc. Best of all, it had 2 bathrooms (never mind that they were small). Everything considered, it was excellent value.

Concierge service was so-so, not consistent, but you have most of what you need in the room anyway (except electric adapters).

Breakfast at the coffee shop on the ground floor was ok. It had less variety than the usual hotel buffet, but just the same, it offered a reasonable, filling breakfast.

For lunch, we tried the family-run hotpot restaurant 2 buildings away and were pleased with the quality of the food.

Ben Hur Hotel: Business District Hotel

Business/leisure hotel in pleasant business district near riverside parks. A welcome change from the bright neon lights. Large comfortable rooms but not much of a view. Computer with free internet in room and bathroom equipped with steam sauna and jacuzzi. Easy access to metro, however need to change lines to access most city centre attractions. Adequate breakfast .. if you get there in time .. as breakfast ceases at precisely 8.40am.

Hamilton Hotel: Love Itaewon

Each time I visit Korea, I do try a new place. We stayed at the Sofitel Ambassador, Seoul Youth Hostel, Best Western and Prince Hotel. The Hmilton is straight up because it is where the expat walk and stay. Very covenant. A bit pricy but it is a great walking place so convenient to all.

SAVOY HOTEL SEOUL: NICE MID RANGE HOTEL

We made the reservation on line and did not know what to expect. As we got closer to the hotel, it seems like a mob of people outside and very festive. Little did we know, the hotel was in the middle of a shopping area where they had wide walkways for people. many students and young professionals around, Upon check in at the small counter, we were led up to a small but very comfortable room at under a hundred dollars. The restaurants and shops nearby all over, the hotel was great on the location, location, location.

location, location, location....everything you would want is right outside your door,

Hilton Hotel - Seoul (Millennium): Comfortable & Efficient

Maybe I am a simple commoner but the people here dressed up very nice!

Stuffy atmosphere. So, if you're looking to make friends then don't.

This is a hotel targeted for business and government types.

The decor is tough to recall other than the holiday decorations. Really nice. The actual building architecture was sort of sterile modern cold look.

Lost of security.

No complaints.

Great security.

jeju lotte hotel: Romantic and luxury hotel in Jeju-island

This hotel is my best hotel I've ever seen in South Korea.

You can enjoy fully all the attraction in safe and comfortable way.
jeju lotte have extremely romantic landscape. I think it is good for honeymoon.
In front of hotel, it have beutiful pond and windmill and garden. you can share landscape of real sea with it at the your terrace.
and also you can attend fire dragon show like show in lasvegas with your dinner.
This hotel is also famous site for filming location.
It have clean and luxury room and delicious moning buffet too.

It have luxury interior both inside and out side. A lot of useful facilities.
But best of all is amazing views in terrace of course.

Novotel Ambassador: An Enjoyable and Relaxing stay in Pusan

The Novotel Ambassador is located right on Haeundae Beach. From the airport you can reach Haeundae Station by bus (1500 won) or go straight to the Novotel Ambassador by express limousine (6000 won). The Novotel Ambassador is a very easy 10 minute walk from Haeundae subway station exit 3 making it a good location for getting around Pusan.

The staff at the hotel were helpful and friendly. You can change money there at a reasonable rate. The rooms are comfortable and modern. They have an in room safe and tea/coffee making facilities. You have to pay to use the internet.

There are quite a lot of sports facilities at the hotel. We frequently used the swimming pool which was open till 10pm. There was also a hot pool, gym and saunas.

Bars, restaurants and room service in the hotel are pricey, but if you don't want to use them there should be no problem, there are many restaurants and bars nearby. There are also lots of convenience stores for stocking up on resources.

Good location- right on the beach.
