    The apartment was very spacious, breakfast was excellent. Location for sight-seeing and restaurants was excellent. Access from airport using limousine bus was easy

    Cafes and restaurants in hotel very expensive. After booking, an email request for directions to the hotel was not responded to, however the airport information desk was very helpful.

    English speaking staff who are professional and helpful. Nice rooms with a view to one of the main palaces in Seoul.

    Breakfast @ $15++ was expensive considering the limited choices available. The cafe just outside Little Jacob's has coffee/toast for under $4.
