We stayes 5 nights. Basically, our airconsitioning did not work. Or we don't know how. Gladly winter is coming so it was so cold. Bathroom jacuzzi not functioning. Too bad 😥. But there are real size lotion, toner and shampoo and liquid soap. Which is the best thing. I bought them back home lol 😁.... Price is fair enough specially...

The problem is that this is advertised as a 3 star hotel. It certainly isn't. It's a decent 2 star motel in an ok location. But for the price you can do much better in Seoul. The Ibis hotels downtown are in a similar price range and look like 5 star luxury hotels compared to Elle Inn. The location is...

This hotel is clean, has nice rooms and an excellent location in a cool and nice neighbourhood of Seoul, located close to the Seoul main station which is a quite central place. Moreover staff is friendly and rooms are very well equipped and are cosy.

We stayed there for 5 nites. Yes, the hallways are dark and warm, but the A/C in our room worked perfectly. The room even has a dehumidifier. The big flat screen TV is nice, they even have desktop computer. Wifi worked great. But the weirdest thing is the jacuzzi tub. I am one of those who is a little leary...

We stayed here after 24 hours of travelling from he UK. The hotel reception staff were very friendly and offered to carry all 60kg of luggage we had. The room was very modern, with a jacuzzi bath (which didn't actually work), large flat screen TV and a computer in the room. Plus all the other mod cons kettle, air con...

I was very excited to stay at the Elle on the advice of a friend....a drunk friend. While the location was fabulous, the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. I really should have read the reviews first. The hotel room was spacious yet musty and run down. There was a ice laden fridge, dusty everything and the spa...

This hotel is cheap compared to many in Seoul, which is great if you're on a budget, but it's not the nicest place as far as the rooms go. My main issue was that I asked for a non-smoking room, but the room I got smelled like it was a smoking room. Apparently, people ignore the non-smoking signs, and the...

We booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and close to the DMZ USO tour start. It is really perfect for this as the tour starts very early. It is also close to some central subway stations and near the War Memorial of Korea and Itaewon . Still we were glad we only stayed there one night. The love...

Older hotel but easy to get to from the train station and a quick walk for an early morning USO tour to the DMZ. Would recommend if that is your plan. Hotel doesn't have a lot to offer though if you are planning on staying over for several days. Bathrooms were big and beds were comfortable. Hotel is aged and...

I stayed here a few years back and really enjoyed it. This time around it had seemed to lose it's comfortable feel. As I was coming in, I kept noticing couples of all ages coming in and out with a bit of paranoia and secrecy. It had become a love motel basically but besides that, it wasn't too bad. Staff...
