This hotel is perfectly adequate for what it is, and is well located, walking distance from the Myeongdong area, and within sight of Seoul tower.

Recommended for the location and price.

Seoul's Best Situated Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2010

For my first time in Seoul, I chose Astoria Hotel because of its price first and foremost. It turned out to be a great decision because of it's near Chungmoro station. If you're a first time traveller to Seoul, I would definitely recommend this hotel since it's near all the major tourist destinations (the palaces Gyongbokgeung, Doksugoeng, Changdokgeoung, Namsangol Hanok Village, Namsan Seoul Tower, Myeong-dong.) The Seoul City Bus Tour also stops nearby since it stops at the Namsangol Hanok Village. The internet is also free! Just bring a LAN cable with you - the hotel sells this but it's overpriced.

The negative points about this hotel are: Room service is not 24/7. No buffet breakfast available. The rooms are pretty old but they are well maintained. The airport bus (going to Gimpo or Seoul) doesn't stop here. You need to walk to Sejong Hotel in order to board one.

Unique Quality: Location! Location! Location!!! Free internet!!! Perfect for people like me who need to check emails for work from time to time.

Directions: Exit 4, Chungmoro Station.<br/>The hotel has no website.
