    Good

    Clean room, nice location, friendly enough staff.

    Tiny room. Only one power outlet, and its in the washroo am! Loud! I didnt get a good night of sleep for 3 days, as I could hear everything from the hallway and the other rooms, showers, sinks etc. Head of bed was 2ft from nois, busy hallway. Kettle provided barely fits under tap, funny! Motion detecting light above entrance would light up in the middle of the night when I turned in bed, yay!! Design flaws like this...had me laughing but also disturbed my stay. Especially for the price.

    Good location - 5 mins walk from the Airport bus stop at City Hall and the City Hall station and 10 mins walk from Myeongdong area. Room is clean and tidy. Convenience store and restaurants nearby.

    Room is too small.

    Location and easy access to the airport by Airport Bus.

    the small bedroom and poor quality breakfasts. also staff's command of english was to be desired.

    Very good

    central location, although a bit hard to find. friendly and helpful staff.

    – the bathroom was smelly and the shower head holder was loose. very small room without any windows, but nice interior design. – the wifi didn't work in our room, only in the central area. cable (ethernet) internet was working in the room. – the room was extremely hot due to the non regulatable floor heating and could only be cooled by turning the a/c on (which is a ridiculous waste of electricity in february with outside temperatures of –10 degrees) – the breakfast spread was minimal considering it was called a continental breakfast and one had to walk to the other irene hotel

    Very good

    Its central location. Walking distance to major market and easy access to bus and metro lines.

    Room Service option to be incorporated with menus for late night dinning. The local resturants around hotel create so much of aroma the hotel corridor smells with the same aroma.

    Fabulous

    Location is perfect. within easy walking distance to Myeongdong and Nandaemun

    The room is too small. No much space for luggage

    Very good

    The location is excellent with lots of bars and restaurants around the area. Also, many of the popular Seoul areas are within walking distance, or just one metro stop away. The room was clean and nice. But we would not stay here again.

    We were very happy with the room and location of the hotel, but we would not stay here again. There was a motion sensor in our room so that every time we rolled over in bed, the lights would flip on. Also, the heat was on full blast (and we could not control it) so we had to also run the air conditioner. I think the hotel may run a zoo, or have a bowling alley on the above floor, because it was so incredibly loud all night long with crashing and banging. My husband and I got the worst night sleep ever. I think the rooms may actually be made of cardboard.

    Very good

    The location was very convenient for the places I needed to get to. The price was affordable for the city it is in.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The location was very close to the City Hall underground station. The palaces were also just a 20 minute walk away and the main shopping area just a 10 minute stroll. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room seemed to be brand new and very well kept. If you just need a place to sleep in, this hotel is just fine.

    When I arrived the quilt cover had a semen stain on it and the sheets were specked with dried blood. However, these were promptly changed with clean ones. The smallness of the room can be a problem for anyone with a lot of luggage. I've previously seen small rooms in Japan but this one took the biscuit. I was travelling by myself so it wasn't a big issue though.

    Fabulous

    Very nice hotel to stay one night. rooms are rather small. Good price for down town room.

    -Breakfast was very poor. If I would have known I would have gone to a coffee shop. (available on walking distance) -Irene City Hotel should not be confused with Irene hotel. (hotel around the corner)

    Exceptional

    Location was really convenient. 3 minutes walk from the City Hall exit 7, and located right where there's a food street, cafes and convenience stores.

    The bathroom was all glass, so if you're staying with friends you may wanna check if there are rooms that don't have glass bathrooms. It was a little difficult to find the location on the first try. So you may wanna call the hotel staff. Otherwise, just exit at City Hall station, exit 7. Walk straight and cross the road. You should see Plaza hotel on your left across the road. Turn right into the first small street u see. This should have many cafes and restaurants. Once u see gs25, turn left and you'll see the hotel.
