Positive Reviews

Great, easy to reach location

The best thing about this hotel appears to be its easily accessible, prime location, overlooking the river Han. Indeed, many guests vouch that they get incredible views over the river from their rooms. The hotel adjoins onto the City MRT and the Sinsa Station is literally outside. Getting to the airport is simple too thanks to the availability of buses and limo-buses on the street outside.

Sumptuous buffet food

The hotel’s restaurant appears to be its principal attraction. Guests love the variety and quality of its buffet lunches. There is a huge and diverse selection of foods, available for a reasonable rate.

Good wellness facilities

The experience of a typical Korean spa is something that many guests relish. They like the sauna and gym facilities.

Negative Reviews

The hotel is getting old

Guests are often disappointed to find that the flattering photos that they have seen online bear little resemblance to the current state of the hotel. They think the place has had better days and is in real need of renovation. They reckon the hotel is not worthy of four or five stars, and warrants no more than a three-star rating.

Small dingy rooms

The hotel’s bedrooms do not seem to be very large and not kept to a high standard of cleanliness. Guests pick out specifically unpleasant odours and heavily stained carpets and walls. The rooms and corridors are also very badly lit and unwelcoming.
