                              location next to Namsan Park and availability of shuttle bus to main attraction in addition to variety of selection at breakfast buffet.

                              Gym was small for a five star hotel and congusted.

                              Standard chain hotel. All correct as expected.

                              room minibar too noisy.

                              I liked the friendliness of the staff and the toilet, which was like a spaceship.

                              I thought the food was OK but overpriced.

                              We got an upgrade to the Executive Floor. It was incredible--you get a lovely view and terrific food served in a private hall just meters from your room. One of the best experiences ever in a large hotel!

                              Nothing to claim. Rooms are very comfortable. No noise at all. Breakfast is really reach!

                              They book 500 EUR for occasions but don't release these money after checking out even after one week.

                              The only good thing abt this hotel is location. They hv nice seafood in the king restaurant.

                              Do not allowed early check in.. I reach hotel at 6am..even though there is an empty room, the reception do not allowe dus to early check in. The room carpet was dirty. Renovation was run down. I book a twin room accidentally, requested to change to a double room but was rejected due to I hv book a twin room from Booked.net. The front desk staff was not flexible enough.

                              Airportbus stops at hotel.

                              For wlan they charge 21 usd (19k Won plus tax) per day which is ridiculous and shows that they did not yet arrive in the 21st century. For me that's a reason not to book the hotel anymore because there are plenty of hotels where wlan is free in the rooms.

                              Expensive food and drink in hotel bar and restaurants.
