Great location for everything at great price

Located 2 minutes walk to the Namyeong subway station (one station away from Seoul station and the Airport train to Incheon), walking distance to I-Park in Yongsan and close to Itoewan and other attractions. Rooms are spacious, and the bathroom especially luxurious complete with well working bidet toilet and jacuzzi bath for two. The hotel itself is quite old, and there is no option for breakfast inside, but plenty of breakfast choices just outside including several coffee houses, Krispy Kreme, Paris Croissant, etc. etc.. Highly recommend it and will use it again. Wifi connection was excellent!

A Great Place to Stay

We stayed 7 nights at this hotel, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. It is right next door to the USO where you can book tours to the DMZ, Joint Security Area, Tunnel #3, palaces, fortresses, river cruises and more. It is near good eating places (both Korean and American food), near the National Museum of Korea, and the Korean War Memorial. The express bus 6001 takes you to and from the airport and the bus stop is about a block from the hotel. The staff speaks good English and is willing to help in any way possible. If I were going back to Korea, this is the place I would stay -- especially for the closeness to the USO Tour site.

Needs a lot of work.

The hotel looked pretty good on the Internet but it doesn't even have a lobby. It was tucked away few blocks from main streets. This is first time I ever saw a self service coffe shop, took me a while to find the light switch. The room had some upgrades but wall paper was peeling off and the floor was vinyl. The only thing I like about the room was the size of their tv (40' flat screen).

Value of money

Very nice and cosy rooms. The hotel has a good location with easy transfer to Incheon airport, restaurants and shopping-areas. Friendly staff with good skills in English. Only con is the noise from the nearby train station, but you only notice it if you open the windows.

The hotel needs major renovation

Upside: The hotel is a stone throw away from Namyeong station Line 4, one stop away from Seoul Station. You will be able to see it as you exit the railway station. Hence, it is very convenient to get around in Seoul. Downside: You will need to walk through a quite/dark alley to get to the hotel, so it might not be the best choice for single female travelers. Besides, the hotel needs major renovation even though it provides you all necessities with a jacuzzi. It's furnishing is VERY outdated and the floors are not carpeted. Don't be fooled by the pictures on the website, because the room we stayed in doesn't look anything like that. The room services needs improvement. Our cups were washed but tea stains were left on our basin. Our toilet flush did not work well too, we had to call to get it fixed. On top of that, all electronics (including air-conditioning and lightings) are controlled by a remote-control that was labeled in korean. Hence, it was not friendly to korean-illiterate travelers like us. Conclusion: If you are looking for a hotel that provides basic and outdated needs within SGD140 budget and its centrally located, this is your choice. But i think i'll rather look somewhere else on my next trip.

This is a good hotel

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. It is in a good location and easy to walk to lots of places. Turn right and you can walk to the War Museum and Itaewon and turn left and you can to seoul station. If you don't like to walk take subway or catch a taxi. All so easy from here. The rooms are a little dim but I guess this is for Romance!!. We read other reviews about it being a Love Motel and if it is well that's fine as it made no difference to us. You have computer in room. Large TV with some English channels. DVD which we did not use. The Spa worked fine and so did the shower above the spa. The staff were helpfull and wrote places in Korean for us. Would definitely recommend for value for money.

Great hotel in a great location

The hotel although hidden from street view, is rather quiet and cosy. It is not far from many tourist places including Myueng Dong and Lotte Duty Free, etc. For the price, there's nothing much you should complain about this place. Be informed that there is no door dividing shower/toilet area and bedroom.

Luxurious room and toilet with poor lighting

My friend and I stayed in Hotel Elle Inn for 5 nights. The hotel is located near Namyeong subway station and it is less than 5 mins walk away which makes it very convenient. Check-in was hassle-free even though the front counter staff could not speak much English. Our room was on the 12th floor and when we reached the level, we were surprised that there were just 2 rooms on every level. The room was spacious and the TV in the room was huge! There was even a coffee table and sofa in the room. Amenities in the room was good - dehumidifier, heater, computer, wifi access, fridge, a jacuzzi bath tub etc. However, the lighting in the room especially the toilet, needs to be improved on greatly. The lights in the toilet were so dim that we could not even see clearly while we were bathing. We had a hard time putting on our make-up in the day because of the poor lighting as well. The bathroom is an open concept one and had no doors. Fortunately, they have installed curtains around the toilet which we can pull over when any of us was bathing. The next morning before we left the hotel, we put up the "Make-up Room" tag on our door knob. We came back in the late afternoon to leave our shopping bags before going out again and to our horror, the room has not been made up. We called the room service number and a guy came up to check. We told him the room has not been made up since morning (only the beds were tidied but the toilet was still in a mess, with no new towels and rubbish bins were not emptied). He told us he would get the cleaners to clean up the toilet and provide us with fresh towels. We believed him and went out again to do our sightseeing for the day. When we came back at night about 10pm, the toilet was still not cleaned and there were no toilet paper and new towels for us to bathe. We had to go down directly to the front counter on the first level to make a complaint before they finally sent two cleaners up to our room to clean up the toilet and provide us with fresh towels and new toilet paper rolls. It was a bad experience for us. For the rest of our stay, however, this did not happen again and we are grateful for that. On the overall, the amenities in the room is really fabulous but the dim lighting and big jacuzzi bath seems to me that the hotel is more suitable for couples to stay in rather than with friends or family. I will not probably not stay in this hotel again as the lighting in the room is really bad and for the same rate, I believe I can stay at another hotel with better service.
