My production team and I from Los Angeles stayed at SLA hotel for 4 nights. The moment we arrived to the location, the staff was really friendly and accommodating; as they even tried to help us with heavy video equipment to our room. The Loft was great, it was clean, and really looked modern. They were very immediate about fixing any issues. When we arrived around 9pm to the loft, our WI-FI in our room was not working. So they immediately came and resolve the problem, and had the WI-FI back up in 30 minutes. The beds were comfortable, as I was able to get good nights rests after long days of shooting. Also it was really nice to have a washer as we were able to wash our clothes. I would definitely come back and stay here anytime I'm back in Seoul for work or vacation.
It's a kind of new hotel and many taxi drivers don't know this place. So make sure that you have the address of this hotel if you can't describe the location.
All staffs were out standing
Pool was great and you can rent swimsuits for free.
Best service, good location for shopping in dongdaemoon and myungdong
There's a new design plaza near the hotel. Don't forget to check that out.

Enjoyed our stay here. Was much cleaner and newer than other hotels we stayed in. It was simple in the room, but clean and modern looking. Enjoyed the tub. Very close to the center of Seoul and to Insadong, where it was fun to walk around and shop.
We were in 2 bedroom "apartment" - essentially 2 connected rooms through an opening (no door). 2 Queen beds, a dining table in one room and a coffee table in another. Each room had it's own bathroom and a refrigerator/freezer. There was a kitchen (sink + 2 burner stove + microwave) in one room. Place was clean and comfy - we enjoyed our stay.
Only down side to us, was that we can see each other's bathroom lights when from the bed, because of where the connecting doorway is located, since there is no door or drapes over the doorway.
Staff was extremely helpful, or at least tried hard to accommodate us as much as they can.
We had free breakfast for 4 of us every morning and free wi-fi during our stay. For the Wi-Fi service in the lobby, be sure to have them type in the password for you. Room Wi-Fi does not need password. You'll need an A/C adapter to charge your iPhone/Android devices. There were plenty of outlets in both rooms and in the bathrooms.
We'd definitely stay here again. Great experience!

A lovely hotel close to the subway and close to many tourist attractions. It was clean, warm, bright, good Wi-Fi, the staff were friendly and attentive, and I have nothing bad to say about the hotel itself. HOWEVER, it is tucked in behind the Sutton Place Hotel, and taxis can't take you right to the front door, and it can be a bit of a challenge to find, although the name of the hotel is easily seen way up high. GPS will take you to an inaccessible alley around behind it, so don't rely on it completely.
