We stayed in a standard room for 2 weeks which did not have a kitchen. As others posted, you can get larger rooms with Kitchen if you have more than 2 people in your party. The standard room is very spacious with separate sitting area which you will not see in Seoul unless you pay for a suite. The price was very reasonable and the staff were friendly. Some people complained that the bed was hard but I found it to be quite comfortable. Many nearby places don't open until 8 or 9 AM but you can get early breakfast at the hotel for W12,000 (about $11 USD), very reasonable for Seoul. Breakfast is buffet style with standard toast, yogurt, milk and coffee but also includes Korean style breakfast with daily salad, soup, porridge and 2 main dishes. Menu changes daily.
It is located right next to subway station at the junction of lines 2 and 7, very easy to get to many tourist attractions. Lotte department store and Star City mall is practically attached to the property with many restaurants, grocery store and cinema. You can also experience small eateries and street food if you venture into many small side streets on the opposite side of the main road. The mornings are relatively quiet for Seoul but afternoon and evenings are bustling with people and activity but the hotel itself is very quiet.
Airport express bus (6013) from Inchon International Airport drops you off in front of the hotel for only W10,000 ( less than $10 USD). I think it's a hidden gem and I would definitely stay there again.
