I was there for Christmas. I stayed there for 5 nights, reached the hotel as early as 12pm. Check in time was 2pm. Luckily, they allowed us to check in early, and even let us to view 2 rooms, smoking and non smoking rooms. We decided to settle with the non smoking room on the higher floor. The smoking room has a small window and large mirror beside your bed which i find it weird. While the non smoking room does not have that large window. What you see in the pictures is the same. The room is small not much space. Toilet size is average, with the water spray functions.
The room is clean, the housekeeping did a great job but i realise they dont clear the rubbish you put on the table (tissue paper and scrunched up paper). The aircon that acts as a heater too, doesnt really work so i get block nose every night and wake up feeling cold. The winter period on christmas can be cold and unbearable for people who are not used to the cold weather,
The staff are friendly and can speak decent english.
The hotel price on super peak period is definitely pricey but okay as compared to the other hotels since the location is good too.
Location wise is good. 5-10 minutes walk to City Hall station. City hall station compared to Seoul station, is less busy and crowded. There is 2 Starbucks just outside the hotel. Burger King and Macdonalds about 3 minutes walk away.
10minutes walk to Cheonggyecheon Stream which displays amazing lights and decorations.
15minutes walk to Lotte Department. Also 15minutes to Myeongdong, where you can find the famous street foods and also alot of shops to buy your cosmetics and clothing. less
