Nice hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 29, 2007

Nice hotel but a little out of the way from the main tourist areas. None the less, it's close to Wangsimni Metro station and the airport. Bus stop is right outside so the inconvenient location doesn't hurt much.

5-Star Quality Room in authentic Korean area, $70

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 26, 2004

When my friend who picked me up from the airport (he lives in Gangnam) found out I was staying in Wangsimni, he immeaditely asked why am I staying in such an average area. When I saw Wangsimni too, I was intially dissapointed as it was nothing compared to Gangnam or Yeouido. The area is a typical middle-class neighborhood of Seoul.

The Hotel Room however was amazing, it actually looked like the images provided on the website. Each room had a 32" Flat Screen TV.
They had English and Korean channels for free. No PPV. There was AC a big plus in sultry Seoul. Everything about the room was more than you could ask for (considering the price) and can easily compare to any 5-Star accomdation. The Bed was extremely comfortable and the big leather sofa could easily fit two.

Everything in the room can be controlled by remote control: 6 types of lights, TV, AC, etc. (except Curtains)

The only problem is that the Breakfast isn't too great, and there was nothing vegetarian. (I would just eat leftover pizza from the night before in my room or go out early in the morning) Also some of the staff do not speak English or are very poor at it. Initally one lady at the reception said I hadn't paid and took a deposit, but the next day there was a lady who spoke English fluently, and she said that indeed I had paid, and gave me my money back.

Their "Business Center" is simply a small room with a computer with a T1 connection. It is free which is a big plus, and if you are a westerner you most likely will be the only one using it in the middle of the night =). Printing and Fax Services however incur a cost

I would definetely recommend this accomadation for someone who is travelling on a slight budget but wants excellent quality. At $70 a night, it seems better than most accomadation in Seoul. However if you do not want to stay in a normal area of Seoul, then you may not like the surroundings, intially I didn't but later you will enjoy it, as the locals believe you are one of them =)

Unique Quality: Ministop 24 Hour Convience Store behind the hotel. Has a Global ATM Machine a huge plus considering Global ATM's are quite hard to find. (there is also one in the subway station) Has hot food, as well as other items found in a convience store.

Dominos, Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonalds, Burger King all under 10mins away.

Shopping street 10 mins away.

Wangsimni Train Station a 5 min walk away.
Major subway station with Line 1 (Dark Blue), 2 (green) and 5 (purple).

Directions: Opposite Seongdong-gu Govt. Offices (Tall Jade Green Building)

Wangsimni Exit 2 - Walk straight for 3-5 mins.
