Cheaper, new hotel in Yeouido

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 23, 2004

First, the price. Most nice rooms in Seoul are $100 to $250 a night...not at Kobos. A room is 80,000 won (USD 70). Free DVD player and 30-40 to borrow (not rent!). Free coffee, minibar/fridge, hot/cold water cooler. Cable. Internet access: 3,000 won (USD 2.50) for like 6-8 hours worth. Whirlpool bath, shower with steam bath. Some room with big-screen TVs.

Best of all, Ben Hur Hotel is opening next door and Hotel M is also coming soon in the area so competition should keep prices in check.

UPDATE: Ben Hur and Hotel M just opened closeby. See their review too.

Unique Quality: Price. Location is pretty good (40 mins to airport, all highway driving; 30 mins to downtown, 45 mins to Kangnam). Staff are light on English but there are some good Western bars nearby: Wa Bar, OB Park and Wingswing (great sandwiches!). Subway, Tony Roma's and Outback Steakhouse are a 10-15 minute walk away (just across lovely Yeouido Park). Also 5 min walk to Hangang (Han River) riverside park.

Two things: window is like 2x4 feet large, and no balconies (but no view anyways) and bathroom door is frosted glass...which is a little weird, but for a 1/2 price savings these are pretty petty things.

Directions: Take subway to Yeouido Stn. and/or take cab to "Manhattan Hotel in Yeouido" then don't go to the Manhattan, walk behind it 2 streets, take a right and Kobos is on the right. Can also take airport limo (Hannan Bus) to Manhattan and walk from there.
