It was a good hotel. It pretty much in the middle of Seoul and in close proximity to several subway stations and buses so it is a good choice if you want to travel around. Myeongdong, Lotte and Shinsegae Department stores, and several traditional Korean sites are also all within walking distance. The hotel itself doesn't have a lot of amenities unless you are willing to pay for them but it's clean and quiet. There is also a sauna, but I understand it is only for men.
The hotel room is clean and well maintained. The bathroom is clean and quite big as well. Our room was spacious with a good view of the Seoul Tower. The staff is polite and very helpful. They did not have our reserved room available so our room was upgraded for free. The hotel has a couple of restaurants and they server breakfast. I found it a bit expensive but serves the purpose if you want the convenience of having breakfast without any hustle. The location of the hotel is central to major attractions that can be reached by foot. There is a subway entrance right outside of the hotel and the airport bus stop a block away. The subway system is excellent and can get you everywhere in the city. Make sure you have a subway map as it can get complicated if you can't read Korean.
It can be challenging to find american or european breakfast places outside of the hotel, also most of the restaurants open around 10:30 am. For the real Korean experience we decided to have traditional Korean breakfast and found few good places. I do not recommend to go to the Korean restaurant that is in the same building, we found it to be over priced in comparison to places you can find a block or so away. The city has tons of coffee shops and seems that it has more Starbuck shops than New York city.
Not only is the Sejong Hotel centrally located in Seoul?s down-town corporate and governmental business district, as well as …More
That was an enjoyable experience at shinshin hotel. The staff in particularly are very helpful. Although that was some misunderstanding whether to clean up our room, they offer us an apology and quickly correct the mistake. They also picked up our sunglasses which we left in the hotel.
I think this is the best hotel i stayed in korea so far. What i like is the wifi and the close location to other train station
Great location near Central Business District, and conveniently has a Starbucks located right next door. The overall area is heavily stocked with business office towers, including AIA and ING located on both the right and left of the hotel. Cabs are always available, and Korean Air Lines runs a shuttle to and from Incheon airport to this Ramada for less than $20 (takes about an hour by bus). Very close to Presidential Palace and Namdaemun gate. International Breakfast Buffet was great and filling for about $18 or so. Overall, great value and great location for my business trip.
