Average Place

I was disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. The toilett had a permanent stench and the carpets were very dirty. They remained in that state even when I complained the carpets were not cleaned. Rather they send me water bottles to apologize. The frontline of the hotel is amazing but the rooms are a disappointment.

Close to Full Gospel Church

Great. I like the twin room with a good size bed. It is close to Full gospel Church and near to the free shuttle to prayer mountain. The staff are efficient and polite. The room is nice and complete but abit dated. Transport from airport is easy, the airport bus stops at the hotel.

The foyer is the most impressive

The foyer is the most impressive aspect of this Hotel. Our room was small but well appointed. Bathroom was adequate. What was most significantly missing was air conditioning. This room became unbearably hot at night and in Seouls muggy weather this was a major negative point. Also got eaten alive by bugs as window was open to compensate. Staff were friendly and helpful and had no trouble speaking English. Internet was provided in room (a little overpriced) and also on the conferance floor for a much better hourly price. Location was good. Close to Airport & subway stops. Yoido has alot of parks so the surrounds were nice in comparison to the rest of Seoul. Overall could've been a bit cheaper based on room size and lack of comfort in the room but not too bad

The quality of the hotel is towards

The quality of the hotel is towards the lower end of a 4* hotel. The price is also very much to the lower end of a 4* hotel. So, it's not a bad deal. It's certainly not as bad as some of the other reviews claim.
