cheheehan TripAdvisor review

I just completed my second stay at the hotel after a 3-day interim for a domestic trip. This is a follow-up to my review titled “Most Convenient and Comfortable Hotel in Seoul,” written on Nov 11, 2023. I still highly recommend the hotel to all types of travelers with a budget. I was actually given the exact same room as my first stay, which made me feel like coming home. After having more time to experience the hotel, I wanted to add to my first review, which is lengthy and detailed. Visitors may notice some barren areas around the hotel as the Yongsan area is being developed into a major business/transportation hub. It in no way detracts from the hotel's proximity to shopping, eating, entertainment and businesses. A positive is that it reduces traffic around the hotel. Compared to hotels located in downtown Seoul or Kangnam, transportation to Incheon or Gimpo Airports is about 20-30 minutes faster as the hotel is located right next to a major artery leading to the airports. A risk for travelers staying at downtown hotels is the frequent demonstrations and protests held near City Hall. This results in road closures and congestion around the hotels and delays transportation. The convenience store at the hotel gets crowded during busy times. One tip is to cross the large street at the entrance of the hotel, where there are many restaurants and convenience stores. There is also an E-Mart (Korea's Walmart) at the IPark Mall (5-10 min walk), where you can find almost anything a traveler would need. On the flip-side, I also noticed some areas where things could be better. Fitness Center - I used the gym daily and found the Fitness Center reception staff to be less welcoming vs others. They didn’t pro-actively offer access to the sauna facilities and their greetings are erratic. They seem to cater more to the health club members rather than hotel guests. Note that there is a policy of not allowing in people that are heavily tattooed. Room - The in-room laundry machine is a luxury but I recommend allocating at least 3-4 hours to completely wash and dry clothes. There is also no large clock in the room, which I found inconvenient. Rooftop - I went to open-air Sky Park lounge on the roof of the hotel to take pictures. The views are fantastic but taking pictures was a challenge due to all the glass windowed walls being dirty. In conclusion, I highly recommend the hotel to all types of travelers except those on a tighter budget. I think the hotel is a great value but if you want to save money on hotels, then this is not the best option. The overall service quality was consistent with my first stay….impeccable. Some staff I'd like to thank are: Receptionists Jennifer Song, Clare An, and Jalynne Lee and Mr. Jun Hwang (Sales Manager). I have already booked 2 more stays for Dec 2023 and Mar 2024 and look forward to those trips.

Thank you for your detailed feedback on your second stay. We're glad to hear you had a positive experience and appreciate your loyalty. Your insights into the hotel's surroundings and transportation benefits are valuable for fellow travelers. We also appreciate your constructive feedback on the Fitness Center, in-room amenities, and rooftop cleanliness. We apologize for any inconvenience and will address these concerns. Thank you for acknowledging our service quality and specific staff members. We look forward to welcoming you back in December 2023 and March 2024 for more enjoyable stays. Safe travels! Cecile, Guest Experience Manager

현재 노보텔스위트 35층에서 일년째 장기투숙중이고 하우스키핑담당자분 너무 친절하시고 정리잘해주셔서 덕분에 일년동안 너무 편하게 잘지내고있습니다~ 장기투숙이니까 물건이랑 옷 되게 많은데 수납이랑 옷정리도 너무 잘해주셔서 너무 좋습니다. Currently I’m having my long stay in Novotel suites, it’s the best long stay experience I have ever had, all the employees and housekeeping managers are so kind and arrange my stuffs perfectly.

The hotel's location is great, close to Yongsan Train Station which will take you pretty much anywhere in Seoul. The service is good too, although the food variety could be better.
