Editorial review:

This hotel has a great central location. The lobby is made with marble, the staff is amicable, and the artwork is chic. The well-maintained rooms were recently renovated—they're decent, but nothing really stands out. They are often offered at a discounted price of W170,000. There are a few restaurants offering cuisine from around the world. Guys can relax and unwind in the lavish sauna and exercise room.

                        The room space and the TV channels :)

                        The Italian Peninsula Restaurant provides very authentic italian cuisine (sicilian and florentine) at a reasonable price. Italian executive chef, Marco Torregrossa, knows exactly what he's doing.

                        While rooms were spacious there is a need here for a style makeover.

                        Nothing to dislike - the hotel and staff were excellent :)

                        Great location - easy to get to from the airport ( kal Limo Bus #1, first stop) and, right downtown near all the royal palaces as well as Museums, Cty Hall and the financial industry.Our room was super comfortable and had some nice amenities - heated toilet seat, total control of the room lights from a control unit near the bed, both tub and shower, nice robes and slippers and a comfortable seating area. We were upgraded to the Executive Floor because our intended room had been given away, so we don't know what amenities are standard, but we were happy.

                        Would like to see wifi availability (not jut by cable).

                        Efficient staff, excellent breakfast content and service and value for money food in the Sunshine Coffee shop.

                        The room would have benefited from having two bedside tables and lamps. The lighting was poor on the side of the bed furthest from the window.

                        Best location in Seoul, right in the center, very close to City Hall and Palaces. Subway is 100 yards away.

                        Good location, good for shopping and business

                        Air conditioner was not good enough for day time to reach 22degree C.

                        Check-inn and check out very quick. Conveniently located near city hall, metro access and within 5 minutes walking of my business address.

                        No complaints

                        Nice clean hotel in central location

                        There was no "do not disturb" sign in the room and the cleaning staff rang the door bell several times when i stayed at the room getting some work done The a/c was turned off, the fan not working while the room started to heat up during the day due to direct sunlight I thought the rooms were overpriced

                        It is really an excellent hotel, with helpful staff and comfortable accommodations. We especially appreciated the fact that it is fairly centrally located, at the end of the bus line from the Seoul- Incheon airport and at the begninning of the City Tour bus for the city of Seoul.It is also not far from the Seoul Station I would recommend it for anyone who wishes to have a very positive first introduction to the city!

                        The staff were not friendly and not very helpful. Internet was 'temperamental'

                        The room was clean, wide. Then all things I hope were in the room.
