    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.

    인사동 및 고궁과 가까워서 위치가 좋았어요~ 방도 깔끔했고, 가격대비 좋은 것 같습니다.

    Good

    Prettige locatie, veel leuke dingen op loopafstand.

    Ontbijt was vreselijk. Bovendien bleek mijn eerder geaccepteerde credit card bij inchecken ongeschikt en werd ik gedwongen voortijdig te vertrekken.

    Good

    部屋が広く、最高にリラックスできる。この空間がなんといっても最高です。スタッフもみんな、真面目な対応で、好感が持てます。

    日本語が、通じないので、混みいった話になると、やや難です。

  • 6.6
    Good

    部屋が広く、インテリア、調度品のレベル設定が、良く非常に快適な移住空間を生み出しています。長期滞在に適したホテルです。ホテルサイドの対応も、付かず離れずといった感じで、こちらから言わない限りは、何もしないって言う感じですが、それがいいかもしれません。

    日本語対応のスタッフがいないので、カタコト英語では不便な場合もあります。

    Superb

    部屋は広く、無駄な装飾もないのでとても心地よかったです。長期滞在したくなりました。次回もぜひ利用したいです。下のドイツビールのレストランは美味しいそうです(現地の方が言ってました)

    地図内のホテルの場所が違っていました。親切な現地の方がいなければ、たどり着けませんでした(あんなに大きなビルなのに…)。部屋内に無料のwifiがあればもっとうれしい。

    立地条件が良い・

    以前は清掃が良かったが、今回の滞在ではレベルが下がっていた。相変わらず若い男のスタッフは教育も語学もできていない。以前を知っているのでいろいろサービスの低下が感じられがっかりしました。

    今回は、価格の割りに狭い部屋になってしまった。 シーズン性もあるだろうが、居心地は悪かった。

    ロケーションも良く、スタッフの対応もとても良かったです。

    2部屋利用しましたが、1つの部屋のテレビが薄型タイプではなかった。
