Absolutely horrible hotel. Booked 3 rooms for 6 nights, paid for early check-in. Walked into one of the rooms to a horrible bleach smell, it looked quite dirty and ran down. First thing we did was check the bed sheets and found hairs on them. Left the room within 5 minutes without using it. We complained to the hotel staff and they confirmed the rooms are not as they seem on the pictures. They offered us an upgrade for one of the rooms but the whole place looked absolutely awful. We explained this is far below expectations and we would instead look for a different hotel. We asked for a refund but the hotel charged us for 3 rooms first night. We assumed they’d only charge us 1 night for 1 room as we had entered it already but they insisted that we will be charged for all 3 rooms cause of hotel policy. So we ended up paying almost $500 for rooms we didn’t use cause of false advertising. Very poor job on Agoda’s part for claiming this hotel was almost an 8/10. Obviously Agoda says they can’t help out cause it’s “hotel policy”. Overall very bad experience. Pretty much feels like I got scammed.

i was trying to see any luck on me to see the experience on this hotel even I seen those bad reviews before I book this hotel. finally, I need to write a bad comment as well. Room - i booked the big room, the room really big but EMPTY and useless, just a big room with some non sense furniture eg. the TV just above the sofa, you will hit your head when standup from the sofa.. chairs at the corner without any thing. Windows = no windows , see the solid big big wall of other building, can't even see the day light. Location = Very good location but i think there have better choice. SHOWER - DISGUSTING, all shower water leaked out from the bottom of the bath tub to the floor. the whole toilet water become a pool after shower.

We booked this hotel because of its excellent location. 1 minute walk at the front you have Sinnonhyeon Station, exit from the back & there are lots of restaurants. Having booked, I became quite nervous after reading so many bad reviews, but we decided to stick with it. So glad we did! I don't understand what the complaints are all about. We were checked in promptly & the staff were pleasent. The room was a good size & clean, comfortable bed, decent A/C & shower. What more do you need? The room was serviced on request & a lite breakfast was included in the rate. It was perfect for us as we were near everything we needed. Forget the other reviews, there's nothing wrong with this hotel & the location is hard to beat

This hotel is just few steps away from the subway station making it an ideal choice for me since I travelled with a luggage on a rainy day. Hotel’s appearance is classy and there are big coffee shops around. The only concern I had was with their spa area as they didn’t allow me in. When I asked for the reason, I was told that the spa and massage service is only for “namjadul” or men. Inside the room, I love the bed the most. Next is the big size bath tub. Dining wise, I enjoyed the buffet which are mostly Korean foods.

I have been to Seoul more than 10 times, and I have never been this disappointed with the quality of service at this hotel. This is the first time I have been so disappointed, that I decided to write my experience. My disappointment and bad experience with this hotel can be summarized as follows: 1. The lobby staff were very rude and could not speak fluent English or Chinese or Japanese. They looked as though they are really shocked if you ask them any questions. 2. Every time I asked for help their default response is they are unable to assist or they don't know. 3. Other staff members were talking behind our backs while we were speaking to a staff member (one of my travel companion can understand basic Korean). 4. We asked for an extra towel as the bathroom was leaking and it never arrived. 5. The sheets were not really clean, and due to this, one of my travel companion had allergy from the first day. The room designs were nice on the homepage, but I only felt that it was well-designed in the lobby. Great location but unfortunately they weren't so polite to the taxi drivers when telling them the directions. I will not stay with this hotel or any series of this hotel due to the quality of their services, mind you that this is the premier series, and will not recommend this hotel to anyone who is in Seoul for the first time or cannot speak Korean.

LYJ suite is big, location is great but you have to beg the cleaner to make the room everyday. Very rude cleaner who will 'scold' you and give you an attitude when you ask them to clean the room. Extremely disappointed when you come back to the room late at night only to realise your room is not clean.

This hotel is 3 star level hotel with cheaper price. No luxury but provide basic hotel service. The good part is location (near subway station and many restaurants, etc) and cheap price level (compare to other hotels in the area) Sadly there are many bads. - The rooms are very noisy. I am very sensitive to noise especially when I sleep. When I check-in, I always ask for a quite room. However, they gave me a room right beneath a lounge which played a loud, club like music with heavy base sound. I could hear/feel the music loudly in my room. After 3 calls to front desk, it changed my room. I didn't hear the lounge music, but could hear other noises, including toilet flush noises from other rooms. - I couldn't control room temperature and the pillows were uncomfortable.
