I have chosen this hotel after reviewing several hotels for its location in Myeongdong district. True enough its location is indeed great next to the Lotte Departmental Store and Myeongdong shopping street. There is a foodcourt at Lotte that serve great variety of food costing an average of US10 per meal, I ate there almost everyday as there are so...

Good value for your money. Hotel in located in the center of Seoul. Our room on 12th floor was not small but ok size. It was well cleaned. Only the carpet looked stained. (Slippers provided.) I wish hotels would opt wooden floors nowadays when they remodel their rooms. Bed was firm with too thick duvet since room temperature was too...

The room is very small, a single bed with basic furnishing like that of a hostel. The furnishing is also dated, like in the seventies. This is a no frill hotel, minimal service and the only positive is the good location in the CBD area. If you have a slightly bigger Budget, suggest the Lotte hotel next door.

Great location with subway & bus access just steps away. Bright, clean lobby and friendly staff. Large comfortable (king bed) room, minimalist decor (looked new) is understated, which I found calming and inviting. Bathroom fixtures are a little dated, but everything was in perfect working order and clean. I had a delightful stay and would choose Hotel President on a...

Excellent location and within walking distance from the Lotte Department Store. I stayed three nights. The room was clean and functional. The room decor is old and the carpet worn. The windows in my room did not seal well, so there was a draft when sitting close to the window. Also windows did not prevent the street noice and especially...
