Stayed for a couple of days before leaving Korea, the staff was super accommodating, all my luggage was easily stored until I had to go to the airport. Room was clean, the bed was comfy and the location next to line 4 was very close, making it easy to reach the airport via line 4 and Transfer to the airport express rail at Seoul Station. Would stay here again. Also there is a discount at the Café in the Lobby for people staying in the hotel

Good location. Airport bus stop nearby. INTL ATM, subway Station, bus stop, Olive Young, Coffee Shops and restaurants all nearby. Don't even need to leave the neighbourhood.
Guests get 15% off at the Twosome Cafe inside. 2nd floor seating also nice, if there aren't many aunties around.
Gym is decent. Rooms clean. View amazing.
Definitely recommend.

✨️Special shout out to Mr. Jung, who helped me drag my suit cases to the airport bus stop.

I don't like the hotel's attitude. they allow only 2 room cleanings during a stay of 7 nights or more. also, they don't provide AC services during the transition season (?!).
considering the odd terms, the price is not that attractive and you can definitely find better hotels with higher standards of service for the same price. it sounds more fitting for a hostel and not for a hotel.

I emailed the hotel before booking after seeing several reviews saying that the AC wasn't working during their stay. I got confirmation that the AC would be working for the entirety of my stay but when I got there all 8 nights were stuffy and hot in the room as the central AC was off. When I informed the hotel staff on my first night, the man on night shift was rude, unhelpful and just sounded exasperated with my feedback.

Location is also farther out from central than you think and room is not well-maintained. Stains and holes on linen and rust around the stove.

Family of 4. Two young kids in elementary school.

Located next to a subway stop, so public transport was very convenient. Parking is free as well, but they use a parking tower, so it's slow getting in and out.

Didn't try the breakfast buffet as there are many other options outside. There is a Twosome Place coffee shop, but it didn't look like they offered discounts for guests.

Seems to be a very busy hotel and popular with tourists.

Hotel staff are competent and efficient but not very welcoming. I guess it's because they are so busy.

Rooms were clean. Everything was in working order. It was a little crowded because we stayed in a triple room. Single beds were a little small, but they were comfy.

It is a good option for a short stay in a very convenient location.

Large Hotel 1 minute from the metro station, with connections to myeongdong and Seoul Station. The size of Seoul means that it is impossible to be near to all attractions but the metro is expansive and efficient (although crowded).

Staff are friendly. Room has all you need & higher floors have nice views over Seoul.

The is a small gym, although it does have free weights and a bench press machine, which I liked. There are also laundry services for 2-3000 won.

There is a nice Longue on the second floor - you need to buy a drink at A Twosome Place on the first floor but is is quiet and spacious.

I had a best experience and they are very friendly and hospitality. We had an issue with our next flight ticket and the receptionist called the local airline, spoke for me about 15-20 minutes and helped me get the ticket. I thought i need to get a new ticket, but he helped me sort out the trouble. I think asking a local for help was the only way.

Thanks to the service of the Best Western Arirang Hill, i did spend special moment with my mom. We planned to have a bath time in hotel, but there was no bathtub in our room. Then, the staff changed our room into one with a bathtub!! How kind she is. It was my third time to visit here and every time i visit I'm always satisfied with this hotel.
