    Good hotel especially for sweet lovers

    The hotel is in the business area but front facing rooms have nice view of the river, bridges and other part of the city. The room and bathroom were pretty clean and spacious. There are two American style restaurants on the ground floor. One of them is extensively decorated, and serves as the frequent place for shooting of the popular Korean drama serials. The only issue is the quality of their service, and it's not about lack of smile. Let me give you a couple examples. I came to breakfast area 30 min prior to their closing. There were not spare caps for tea/coffee. I asked the girl who seemed to administer the process. She checked first if my complaint had any merit, and after some absence came with ... plastic cups. I've got permission from the reception to check out 2 hours later. The cleaning lady checked on me twice during that time, and got visibly puzzled by my presence in the room after check out time. Eventually, she brought another lady and I got a call from the reception. The person sounded surprised that I would check out at 1pm as agreed with his colleague but did accept that. Last but not least. The block behind the hotel is occupied by numerous cafe. Besides US chains (Starbucks, Coffee Beans), there are locals. So, if you have a sweet tooth - this hotel is for you :)

  • 2.0.Poor

    The staffs are always very friendly and professional. Check in and out is always smooth. However, I booked and paid for the executive floor where is more expensive than the standard room, and which the breakfast is only available at the executive lounge, the food choice were just very little, only 4 hot dishes, very bad. and I stayed in this hotel for many many times and the internet connect is getting worst and worst , the TV also , discounted in every few mins, it is very unacceptable.
