The hotel is central to everything in Myeongdong.....probably the busiest shopping district of Seoul. It's only 5 mins to Lotte Dept store and duty free. But President sits in a unique corner overlooking city hall which is a quieter side of Myeongdong. The room was very well furnished (typical of Korean hotels..ha ha), with a modern/boutique style to it and...

We stayed here a few time and both times were nice. The first time we stayed we were on a high floor in the standard room and the next time they upgraded us to the deluxe. Both rooms were nice, the deluxe was newly renovated so the decor was very clean and modern, but to tell you the truth I...

I was on the conference trip and the school paid for the room so I am not sure what type os room it is and how much it cost. The room looks amazing in my opinion. Everything seems to be new and decoration was great. I had a good view from the window too. Be careful and prepare for plug...

The location is great. Basically just across the street from Seoul Plaza. You have the subway around the corner. A few restaurants as well. And a CU convenient store. About 10-15 minutes of walking distance to Myongdong shopping district. When I first arrived after 12 I was told I had to wait another 2 hours in order for the room...

The hotel is located walking distance to Myungdong shopping and Namdaemun market areas. The lobby of the hotel is nice but the rooms are very outdated and the beds are small. But they do have free wifi and parking which is great.

Stayed for 2 nights for business. Greeted poorly by the reception who frowned during the entire check-in process. The room is quite old and dirty in some areas, regardless of asking for non-smoking I can still smell signs of smoking in the room. Asked for extension of the stay due to business plan changes, got the same receptionist and continually...

Hotel is a great location. Overlooks Seoul Plaza. Next door to Lotte for meals and Myongdong for shopping. Room size was large. Furniture is old, worn, and cracked. Really need to replace. Free wifi was good. Lobby and elevator give good impression. Would stay again based on price and location.
