This hotel is located in between two subway stations, where we could easily access 3 of the metro lines, namely lines 2, 3 and 5. If you walk in the direction behind the hotel for about 10 minutes, you can reach Chungmuro station where you can take line 4.
Took the airport bus 6015 for 15000won from Incheon airport, and it stopped right in front of the hotel. Same for when you are going to the airport, you can take it straight from the same stop. There is also an hourly free shuttle from the hotel to dongdaemun and myeongdong. Hence location wise, it was literally perfect.
We booked a standard room and were pleased to find it up to the standard of a 4 star hotel. We were given a room on the 20th floor where we had a fantastic view of the city. The room itself was clean, comfortable and spacious enough, although the tv was a little small by Korean standards. Bedroom slippers were provided, as were shower gels, shampoo, cotton buds, sewing kits etc, but you should bring your own toothpaste and toothbrush (though alternatively you could purchase a toothbrush from the hotel for 2000won). The room also had a safety deposit, hairdryer, bathrobe (though a bit mouldy looking) and high speed free wifi, as well as a kettle with free tea bags and coffee mix.
We used the gym a couple of times and they had most of the upper body building equipment, although there were no dumbbells.
One thing I should highlight is the impeccable service of the staff. We had to print something urgently one night and the reception staff kindly allowed us to use the workstation and printer at the lobby for 5 minutes for free. Also, we had a bouquet of flowers with us, and initially, we had unwrapped it to put it in a bottle of water. However the next day, we returned to find that the housekeeping staff had thrown away the plastic wrapper for the flower. We didn't think much of it until the day of check out, until we decided to take the flowers along. So we called reception to ask if they could provide some plastic/paper wrappers, and they apologised for accidentally throwing the plastic wrapper away. In fact, the housekeeping team actually called back a few minutes later to tell us that they were going to buy a new plastic wrapper for us, and to check with us the size of the bouquet! In 10 minutes, they came to the door with a big plastic sheet and a few ribbons, just in time for us to wrap up the flowers before checking up. We were very much impressed with the prompt and efficient service of the staff and would like to commend the housekeeping team here. less
