Very good 8.0
Close to COEX City Check in centre. Comfortable room. Simple breakfast provided only.
Patrick, hk2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The first night it was 83F in our room. The thermostat does not work. Finally ask the front desk and they have control of the room thermostat and would turn it off. Came back in the afternoon room was at 84F ask again and they said they would shut if off. Didn’t sleep the second night because the room got up to 85F. Asked again how to cool the room and they front desk said there was nothing they could do. We checked out two days early because we could not get the room to cool down at all. :(

Nice stay, although not perfect
Not too close to Samseong station or COEX, but it was still within walking distance. Was not able to get the exact room I wanted to stay at, but the room condition was not bad at all.

Had to switch room twice because the condition of the rooms was not good. There was construction going on every day (not at night). Front desk is very helpful and nice

Good but not perfect... some work can be done
Booked only 1 night due to such tight bookings in the area for the busy weekend of events. I was given a choice of rooms, I took the one I figured best matched my style. The room itself was awesome however my only complaints were the bed was VERY firm and not in the good way. Secondly the TV was having issues with channels so ended up on my iPad watching NetFlix for my night while in. Customer service could use some polishing as there were some instances where I was not getting the service I should have been getting as a guest.

Not too bad room
Not too bad, room a bit dull without table light lamp on. Walkable distance to two train station.

Quite a comfortable hotel
Our overall stay at Hotel the Designers Samseong was great. The staff at the reception were very helpful. The room was quite comfortable and very cool with all the technology (automated toilets :)). However, there was not really any natural light coming in - the room had a very small window which was converted into a mirror. This didn't really bother us since we were not in the hotel much. It would be nice if the bath tub had shower curtains to avoid the whole bathroom getting wet when having a shower. Location was great for us - quite close to the metro station and Coex exhibition centre.

Cracked walls
Pillows were too soft, room too dark and toilet walls were cracking so badly. I wonder why they used tapes to secure the cracks.. how will that even help.

Frustration at reception checking-in.
Checking in was a hassle. The receptionist didn't really know what he is supposed to do. Very dis-organized.
