    Lobby and main entrance area has a constant smell of sewage. The only seating available in the lobby is a small wooden bench in a corner. The staff has limited english and no service skills. The non smoking rooms smell of, yes you guessed, stale cigarette smoke. The beds are rock hard. There is no coffee making facilities in the room but green tea is complimentary. The minibar only offers water and some soda. The cleanliness of the room is not great. There is no breakfast included and the restaurant only opens at 6.30 am. The hotel has a very shabby communist era feel to it. I would not stay here again - it's not value for money as this would at best be a 2 star hotel in the western world. There are only a couple of airport shuttle buses offered and the one we chose didn't even leave on time.

    Convenience to shopping areas and tourist spots and ease of public transport.

    Charge for toothbrushes which are usually provided free. Also, extension of check -out time is chargeable, no grace period given.

    Excellent location, the room was on a high floor and had great views. It is a nice hotel although rooms were small.

    Prices are high for what it is. Breakfast buffet is limited to Asian Food. Staff is not very helpfull and english is limited.

    the hotel staff was not good as other people said, Maybe I have teh bad one. She was showing her bad mood to me , when I was check out< when I ask her why tooth and razor on my bill( becareful they charge you and without inform) Because I use my own. She was not happy to take it off and also for the WIFI, as the rate they told me W500 per minutes, I had use 10 mins one day and 2nd day 20 mins< but they chage me more more than What I use was Wan 18500I was in the hurry and as her, she just show me the ignor face> I won't like to see that kind of face again.My friend form travel agency told me the room very old and not nice. I should trust my friend's suggest.

    The location was very good and the staff there was very nice. The room was very clean and nice. The view was nice (we were on the 17th floor), it was quiet at night.

    They did not speak english but I spoke japanese so we were able to communicate. The room was very nice but very small. They charged us for toothbrushes... The air conditioning did not work but the windows opened. concierge was not helpful.

    Location was great for shopping and there were many restaurants around the area

    Breakfast in the hotel was a bit bland.

  • Couple
    8.8

    perfect location in myeong-dong. breakfast was good, but vouchered only for 1 in a 2-bed-room. staff was always very forthcoming.

    executive lounge on 14th floor was rarely staffed (you have to call the reception for internet password - no phone at the desk provided) and closes off at 10pm. so when you come home late there's only one free internet-pc at the front desk in the main hall, which is always in use in such a crowded hotel (seems not to be too appropriated in 2010).

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Excellent location right in the center. Shops, restaurants, walking streets, etc. Room comfortable and nicely furnished.

    First room offered had a smell. Room actually taken had carpets that were badly stained but otherwise hotel was excellent

  • Single

    Hard communication and reluctant to assist.

  • Single
    7.4

    Modern and up to date with room features.

    Carpet in the room was a bit old and dirty.

  • Single

    The rather good, central location, the free airport shuttle (though only 4x per day), free umbrella-service for rainy days, and generally hlpful personnel.

    No free wifi internet!!! <-- although in Booked.net description clearly mentioned, there was no free wifi but only one terminal pc for hundreds of guests. Expensive 24h-charge applied. Rooms tiny and mouldy smell. Bathrooms outdated. Hotel certainly not up to the standards of 150 EUR/night.

  • Family with children

    For me, Seoul Royal has the best location especially if you will be travelling with your family. Very accessible, surrounded by all that a tourists need, good shopping stores, restaurants, church, etc.etc. I would highly recommend it especially if its your first time in korea.

    It has no lobby.

  • Family with children

    Location is great in the middle of shopping area and downtown and its close to two metro station line 2 and line 4 very nice and great location , hotel staff is friendly and helpful

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    It is really have a good location, it only take 5 mins to the station, and from there can walk around 15 mins to the seoul tower, and one of the famous porridge and beef soup restaurant is just oppsite. It is in the heart of the myondong AREA,you can just shopping around the hotel and take back to the hotel, and continue to shop again,,,,i will be there again. And one I need to say, it got a free shuttle bus between the airport and hotel, that is greatly appreciated service!!!

    The room is a bit small.
