Hotel Samjung
Ranked #230 of 552 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed 27 November 2015

I stayed here for 2 nights will attending a meeting. The hotel is in Gangnam, and is thus reasonably accessible. There is a KAL shuttle to ICN, and the express subway line 9 gets you to/from GMP in ~30 minutes.

The hotel itself is a little dated. The furniture, etc., is fairly old. The carpets aren't particularly clean, and the rooms smell of smoke. My first room, despite being non-smoking, had a particularly bad smell of smoke; I immediately requested a change. My second room was *much* better, but the carpet still had a faint smoke smell. The bathroom was functional but dated. Overall, a decent hotel, but nothing spectacular.

Free wifi was included, but speeds were poor. Free breakfast was included, but service starts @ 7am, which was too late given my schedule, so I couldn't partake. However, food in the restaurant for other meals was generally good. The staff was generally helpful and friendly.

Good hotel, warm and good reception
Easily accessible.
I liked the toilets very modern and had a room located at a very strategic location.
Had variety of food to serve yourself and the serenity of the restaurant is something I liked.
Was able to visit the city and the guide from the hotel was helpful.
Improvements to include the room lighting system, electric plugging, especially closed to the bed. Probably to provide two keys, that will provide alternative charging even when one is away from the room.

I was staying here for short winter trip with friends. I stayed in 10th floor. The view from my room was nice. I loved the breakfast although the restaurant is a bit small. But overall, this is a good hotel with affordable price considering its location

Pros :
- good location, near mrt
- very fast wifi
- good breakfast
- clean room and nice bath ammenities

Cons :
- unfriendly hotel staff
- lifts are narrow and slow

Room Tip: Level 10 or more will give you better city view

I booked since i was only after it's location.
Was surprised it wasn't too bad at all.
4.5* hotel for the price of 5* , in a city with many of good options isn't the best deal in town, but reasonable.

Nothing to write home about.
