Don't know what previous reviewers were complaining about - if the comforters were too hot they could have turned up the AC to make the room colder :) close to Insadong and subway; clean comfortable rooms. Problem with AC was fixed within minutes.
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.
Wonderful hotel, clean, modern with a friendly staff. It has a huge and well equipped spa and fitness center. It is very close to a major subway stop which in Seoul is very important. My only complaint is tha t the restaurants, lounge and coffee shop/ bakery are expensive.

We stayed there for a business meeting. Customer service was beyond expectation even before we got there. Even though the hotel is hard to locate, you can always call the hotel and the staff will fetch you if you're nearby. The hotel facilities are clean and better than we expected. What is great about this hotel is that the subway is in walking distance and the place is also safe.
I booked this place exclusively from Expedia reviews. I was not disappointed.
There are a couple very minor things to note but overall I strongly recommend this place and I will stay here again whenever I am in Seoul. I paid a great rate for the amenities, location, and quality of the room.
Large comfy beds, spacious rooms and bathrooms. The breakfast included with stay is quite a deal.
While it is limited, it includes a good range of hot items, cereals, fruit, yogurt, bread, coffee and tea.
A great way to meet on the terrace or inside to plan the day. There was a coded safe, large screen television,
refridgerator, hot water maker, and large jacuzzi in my unit. This hotel is very centrally located in the Insadong shopping district. I could walk to several shopping and tourist destinations within 30 minutes in any direction.
The easy access to Cheonggye Stream Park allowed for a morning run and the next door Jong-No Tower (Samsung Tower) is a well-known building that every taxi driver knew when I needed to get back "home" after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. It's a great little hotel in a sweet location. Staffed 24 hours by helpful people. Minor complaints: 1- Dusty room fixtures. 2 - I was refused access to a restroom by the front desk after check-out. 3 - They required the entire $2000USD paid in advance when I booked the room in June for my October trip.
Very welcoming staff. Room spotless and comfortable. We had probably the smallest room, one double bed. When you book a double room you actually get a double in Korea not like in America where you often find 2 queens or a king. But it was really comfortable and well equipped. Fridge refilled with 3 drinks daily. Great shower and toilet. Big towels. Ac and window. Everything you need in fabulous location. And did I mention quiet. Amazing quiet, like an oasis. Just 5 or 10 minutes away is bustle of Seoul yet hotel is so quiet, night and day. Perfect!
