GLAD Hotel is the first member hotel of 'Design Hotels' in Seoul. GLAD Hotel Yeouido is conveniently located right outside of Exit 4 of National Assembly Subway Station (Line 9) and offers a 24-hour access fitness centre. Property-wide WiFi access and on-site parking are available for free. Featuring a minibar, each room is fitted with a work desk, seating area and 42 inch LED TV with cable and satellite channels. Private bathroom comes with Kudos bathroom amenities. 24-hour front desk and free shuttle services are available at GLAD Hotel Yeouido. From the hotel, Korean National Assembly Complex is a 5-minute walk and IFC Mall is a 15-minute walk away. The hotel is a 25-minute drive from Gimpo Airport and a 50-minute drive from Incheon International Airport. In the glimmering skyscraper-filled district of Yeouido, aptly nicknamed Seoul's Manhattan, GLAD Hotel Yeouido is already turning things on its head. The hotel's facade, with its unusual brick pattern, at once stands out from its neighbors' modernist glass buildings. Bricks have also been wittily used in the hotel's interiors. And to create an "on the street" experience, street signs help guide you home to your room. Thanks to an honest approach to design, rooms are cozy and practical with no hidden or confusing features, and the hotel's Greets restaurant and cafe revels in natural materials and pure forms. Bar Mark T, inspired by Mark Twain's favorite tipple, serves up the city's most extensive and unique collection of Single Malt Whiskey. The cozy rooms feature practical open shelving for storage, desk space, and even a lounge sofa for relaxing. High quality natural materials give the spaces a sense of calm and warmth. Posters in each room play on the hotel's 'glad' motif with amusing quotes from renowned thinkers such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Shakespeare. A local type of brick was chosen as the dominant structural material to give GLAD Hotel Yeouido the warmth and soul of a traditional South Korean home. But thanks to award-winning Joh & Company's singular vision, the bricks are expressed throughout the property in unique stacking patterns. The brutalist-interiors are rendered light thanks to a playful use of the material, giving depth and texture to the lobby. The hotel also adheres to the national environment-friendly standard and proudly uses geothermal energy.

We arrived at the GLAD hotel after a long journey from London and we realised straight away that we were in a good place when Hale, the helpful young man at Reception, went out of his way to secure us a room as we were too early to check into ours. He seemed genuinely pleased to help and that attitude prevailed from everyone at the hotel. The place was spotless and efficient yet welcoming, much like Seoul itself. The breakfast was a treat every morning and its location right outside the Metroline stop made it an ideal base to explore the city. We will certainly look to stay here again when we next visit, thank you GLAD for contributing to a wonderful city break.

Great location, airport bus and metro entry are just right in front of the door of the hotel make it very convinenent, especially under cold weather.
Room is clean, warm, and confortable. I like their seperated toilet, shower, and sink, which make it's more flexiable for usage.

My experience with Glad is always fully satisfying. Last time I visited the one in Mapo and it was great, which got me to book another night in Yeouido this time. Although I made my booking through Agoda and accidentally booked a twin bedroom without knowing it couldn't be replaced to a double, Kevin generously offered us an upgrade and a double bedroom. The room is neat, modern and cosy. If you are looking for a "not so pricy" option but would want to get most out of your budget, Glad is highly recommended for any type of vacation/business trips :) Definitely will visit again.

Honestly, the hotel settings, decorations and the rooms are all quite nice. But I had my worst customer experience here ever in Korea. We tried to ask the front desk staff Jess Kim to help us order the take away chicken but she denied us simply saying that they don’t do this. We ask if she can help us call and she got a lot of excuses asking us to buy it outside by ourselves because she was taking care about her paperworks. I and my friends tried several times by asking the staff from other hotels help to order take away, all were very smooth and nice but this is the first time we get denial. Being denied was not feeling well but her attitude was the worst. My whole Glad experience has been ruined by her.

Incredibly convenient location just steps away from metro station and airport bus stop. A modern, stylish, clean, quiet, and comfortable property staffed with professional employees with proficient English and excellent training in guest services. Rooms are large and full of amenities, including comfortable work spaces. Breakfast buffet is definitely worth the cost: A wide variety of fresh, high-quality Asian and Western dishes, served with a smile. I certainly look forward to staying at this property on my next visit to Seoul.

It was a very satisfying hotel for our trip to Korea, and it gave us a good start!
Mr.Hale's attitude was warm, professional, and responsible at check-in.
Rooms are very large, as soon as entering the door was attracted to the bathroom and bathtub, really like the design, the bed is also comfortable and soft! and 220v socket, which is very important
The location is also convenient, both by airport bus and by subway, in front of the Glad Hotel.
It's perfect anyway!

Hotel is generally adequate. Disappointed though when I left one day early I asked if they could refund me that day’s room cost. They said they could not as it was booking.com who booked it. They said if booking agreed to waive they will. Booking agreed to waive but Glad reneged and did not waive the fee.

Simple, very accessible and clean hotel. Near to the mrt station and has a No Brand supermarket to grab necessity during day time. Has a starbucks nearby too but if you have chosen take away drink/food make sure you take away if not you will be chased out.

Answer from GLAD_HOTEL_YEOUIDO
Seoul, South Korea
Warm greetings from GLAD Hotel Yeouido. This is Nick from concierge. Firstly, if you'd like to take a limousine bus #6030, suppose to come out the gate 7A or 3B at the terminal 1. And for terminal 2, you need to get to "B1" floor, then buy a bus ticket for #6030. You can take a limousine bus at the platform 32. Stop at the "National Assembly subway station", which is Exit no.1 and GLAD is right in front of Exit no.4. It would take about 1 hour 20 minutes and cost KRW15,000 by #6030. and we have IFC mall near by hotel 10 min by walk

It's about 2.75km, quite tough to walk. I'd recommend renting a bike at the rental station just next to the hotel or front of the Yeouido Park.
