Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent service and awesome hotel room. My regular place to stay when I am in Seoul. I would like to mention a special commendation to your service Staff Mr LimGiSun for his assistance to my child who lost her mobile phone, he took extra effort and went extra miles to bring us to the restaurant to find the mobile phone and to the police station to lodge a police report and finally we managed to recover back the lost iPhone. We are grateful for his assistance and he is an asset to your esteemed organisation. Thank you very much.

Pros: Excellent location. We booked a triple room and the size was comfortable. Cons: Mosquitos in the room. My son was bitten multiple times by mosquitos. Noisy aircon. Dirty carpets, thank goodness they provided bedroom slippers.

Stayed there for 11 nights with run of the house room. Shower pressure was weak. Seems some rooms were ok but others may not be. Stayed here for the 4th or 5th time, a mix of experience regarding shower pressure. So when i approached a staff, he claimed it’s the same for all rooms, when it’s clearly not the case. There were mosquitos in the room, seem to escape from the various vents in the bathroom. Might be a problem during summer. But previously there weren’t such an issue. Some disagreement between housekeeping standards. Upon check in, staff at reception claimed housekeeping will be done once a week but towels will be changed every day. but another day another staff said no, towels will only be changed when housekeeping was carried out, including bathroom amenities like shower gel and shampoo. So when i said the very small tube of shower gel won’t last till the next housekeeping, he told me my rate is a very cheap rate. And raised his voice at him when we were arguing over this. It’s only when i said he’s raising his voice at me that he backed down a little. And then agreed to change towels, and shower amenities and provide drinking water every day, but only as a sign of goodwill. I accept that there’s no need to change bedlinen or vacuum the room etc, but consummables should be replenished and this is after all a hotel. Not to mention a hp was mysteriously lost in the room, though i really didn’t think it’s mischief or intentional. But after housekeeping did a rather thorough investigation, there was prob some miscomm, bec it was comms to us that if they checked the cctv again, and found nothing, we must leave. So not sure if they meant we had to leave or we could choose to leave. But language was perhaps a barrier.

This hotel had everything we needed for our first visit to Seoul. The room was spacious and well fitted. Complimentary coffee and tea got us started each day. Room layout was good with ample space for us. Hotel is well located to the city centre with evening food markets.

This is our third time staying in this hotel and I think will be the last! They cannot help you with advance prior restaurant reservations unlike lotte and marriot. They suggest you walk to their concierge and ask . Other hotels should gladly help you since you have a paid reservation and they have your details. So we complied and went to the concierge to ask for help. A kind girl helped us and happy she found a table but it required a KRW 20,000 deposit so we paid her in cash and spelled out our names in a baggage tag she wrote on. She used her own personal catchtable app to book the table. When we got to the restaurant the next day we had no reservation good thing there was a vacant table. No reservation meant our deposit was not reflected . When we got back at the hotel we informed the front desk and so they called the restaurant . The name that reflected on the reservation was the girls name so it was considered a no show so they won’t Refund the money . The man at the desk also said the girl who booked for us was not picking up her phone . So he said he will inform her. Then we left and he followed us asking if we needed the money back! I know it’s a little amount but my issue was I wanted that girl to learn her lesson and so that this will not happen to other guests again. But my husband said not to get the money back . We never heard about the issue no apologies whatsoever from that girl nor the hotel. One our way home we called to ask our bags to be picked up from the room and we mentioned we had 4 luggages. A man named Minho I think arrived looked at the luggages and said I will comeback to get my trolley . Did he think he can carry 4 luggages without a trolley. Then he came back and we asked if he can book a taxi which he did. He asked us what our destination was and we said incheon airport terminal two . Then he asked again in an unfriendly tone.. what is your final destination and we replied again incheon airport terminal 2. So he booked for us and said we need to pay 68,820 and we said thanks. The taxi driver brought us to a seaport !!!! So we were running late and asked the driver to bring us to the airport additional 40 minutes !!! And in the End he charged us 110,000 KRW so we lost another 30,000 and time. Since we were late already we could not do our tax refund amounting to about 120,000 won! Lastly the room Aircon is 24-36 degrees only so hot especially at night. Carpet needs to-be replaced or shampooed well. Dust can be seen especially below the tv area. Also lounge that offers only cocktail hour NO afternoon tea and NO breakfast opens quite late unlike other hotel lounges and they should help in restaurant reservations too! we also requested a feather free room since my husband is allergic but they dont have other pillows but the korean traditonal pillow that is non feather :(

This hotel is in the bustling heart of Myeongdong, across from the church a bit up the hill. The hotel itself is clean and neat and the staff are very friendly. Cleaning service was a bit inconsistent but overall we were satisfied. The bar and the lounge are a bit overstated… but luckily there are always other places to go in Myeongdong. If you book a Premiere King room, you can get a free hour if you request a late checkout. Every other hour is about ₩11,000. The rooms and the bathroom were a bit small but location wise it’s really good.

Very good attention and Service. Excellent point for shopping. Near important subway station to take tours. American breakfast could have more options and some fresh fruit. Double room with standard size and twin room more spacious than double room.
