I had a great time. I asked for a HDMI and a VGA cable to hook up the monitor and the TV to my computer. Don't hit the elevator button twice. Then it cancels. Took me a day to figure out. Breakfast is OK.

The hotel is quite small compared to other Holiday Inns but it is quite comfortable. Spoken English among staff is very basic. So it may be a while to get through what you wish if it is slightly more complex. The rooms are clean and more than adequate. A couple of complimentary bottle water is provided each day. Around the...

It's the smallest Holiday Inn I've ever stayed. One bus stop is 10 meters aways from it, but if you don't know Korean, you don't know how to take bus. The closest Metro station is about 15 minutes' away by walking. So it's not so convenient to go out and come back to hotel. When I arrived, the front desk...

It's very well connected with the airport -the shuttle bus service has a designated stop by the hotel.The room for three persons was comfortable, the beds and all equipment were very good.

Hotel room was wonderful. Not very big but felt comfortable and warm. Lots of good eateries nearby which are open until late at night. Staff were generally friendly but their standard of English was not exactly the best, and I had to take out my phone to use google translate. Breakfast was tasty and had a wholesome variety of choices....

I spent 2 nights at this hotel and was very happy with my stay. The hotel itself is not overly modern, but neither unclean nor not well taken care of, but the main highlight of my stay was the staff, from stepping into the hotel to heading to the airport they had the best service. They were very polite and...

When I heard 'Holiday Inn' before I arrived in Seoul, I expected to see an average HI in Canada and USA. To my surprise, this HI turned out to be an excellent fully equipped hotel with all the amenities one would need, which included a washlet, pairs of slippers, bathrobes, dental, manicure, hair, lotion, and sewing kits, three complimentary bottles...

I had a good stay here. The facilities were modern and the location is right smack in the CBD. The breakfast buffet is tasty. Oh, and I still keep the see through umbrella that they so thoughtfully provide.
