Check in was smooth & efficient with staff who spoke English well. Lots of elevators. We had a fantastic view of the Namsan Seoul Tower from our 19th floor room. Beds and linens were comfortable. Bathroom was western style with a shower/tub and curtain, so no flooding issues as in some Seoul hotels! Very modern toilet with all the electronic bidet functions but there is an ordinary flush handle if you just want what we are used to in N America! Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in a large wall dispenser plus bars of soap & lots of towels. Free water in room plus bar fridge with pricier items for purchase. The 24-hour convenience store on the first level of the hotel has a really great supply of different beers, liquor , sandwiches, coffee, chocolate etc. Very convenient and good prices!! We ate dinner at the restaurant twice;
Really excellent steak with buffet and beer or house wine included, so that made the 55000 dinner good value! I had forgotten that the service/ dining culture is very different here: staff do not constantly hover and interrupt as we are accustomed to in North America, so at first you might think you are being ignored. The onus is on the customer to get the server’s attention and then the service is impeccable. This is just the culture. Really wonderful staff in the restaurant. Breakfast had a wide variety. Not quite what we are accustomed to, but as good as one is likely to find in Seoul. Scrambled eggs and bacon were part of the buffet. 19,000 seems a little steep though, compared to a North American breakfast price where eggs & sausages are prepared to order. I counted 140 strides to the subway, located to the right after you leave the hotel! So close. That’s exit 10 on the green line, Eujilro 4. Taxies in Seoul are cheap, only 5 or 6 000 won most places we went. Myeongdon and the DDP (Dongdaemon Design Place) are walking distance (20 minutes) or one stop away by subway. If we are lucky enough to return to this amazing city of Seoul, we will definitely stay here at Best Western Premier Hotel Kukdo again. less
