Good for business and/or pleasure
We had a mixed situation where wife had to tend to some family business while, at the same time we both had to continue working (in US time). We both had to be on the phone or Virtual meetings during night time in Korea. The only thing we had to adapt was to move to a larger room (suite) where we could each talk without disturbing the other. The hotel had no problem accommodating that. Accommodations are great, and, if you have access to the lounge, you have your breakfast and dinner. Subway stations are steps away, so you can be anywhere anytime. Great staff!

a very sound and enjoyable stay
We stayed for two nights and had the most enjoyable experience. Great service, wonderful room with view on the ancient city gate. The Executive Lounge offered nice food and drink options during their "happy hours" and it was nice to also be able to enjoy the indoor swimming pool (after vaccination check). Overall one of the best stays we had in Korea. Would always visit again.
