Hotel Samjung

Reviewed 20 January 2013

It was my 1st trip to Seoul and looking at my bidget constraint and higher cost of living in Seoul especially Ganganm District, I dint go there with high hopes.

But I must say this 30 year old hotel pleased me with everything, spacious well lit room, nice lobby and stafff and the best thing was their fitness centre with Gym, Steam, Sauna and best is Hot and Cold Jaccuzzi.

Positives
Location - Right in the heat of Gangam District, near to metro station, resturents n convenience stores

Rooms - Nice room, with everything for a business traveller

Breakfast - Wide Spread Breakfast (once I just wanted to have a cofee n then go to spa and come back for breakfast, they allowed)

Spa and Fitness - Best Equipment and facilities

Negative
Only one the use of Gym is charged even for the guests (may be because it is attached to the spa)

Room Tip: Chose rooms on heigher floor, avoid left side rooms as it has adjoinning nightclubso gets noisy duri...

We stayed at the hotel for a week. The room was clean, adequately furnished and the staff helpful But neither one of us got much sleep Friday-Sunday the adjoining very loud nightclub went boom, boom, boom from 7 PM to 7 AM non-stop. The rooftop restaurant is very nice and while not inexpensive, good value for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the nightclub which is to the left of the hotel and upper floors would be much bette...

This hotel is undoubtedly popular with the locals. During our 10 days there were at least 5 weddings, 3 anniversaries, and maybe one funeral ...

Simply put, there were not many foreigners, but many locals. That is a usually a good sign. However, the staff is not used to speaking English. Although the hotel is not located very close to the COEX centre, it can be used for business purposes; there are numerous conference and meeting rooms within the facility. And one more important information regarding the location - the hotel is in Gangnmam district - about 8 minutes of (steep) walk from the metro station.

The breakfast is astonishing in terms of selection. And also astonishing in terms of price (it costs 35 dollars !!)

This hotel was great until Friday night when the nightclub started at approx 10pm and continued until 0700 the next morning. I was on the 7th floor and all I could hear was the base booming out all night.
Hotel was clean, everything worked and I would have given it a very good but not now.
