Good hotelPosted May 9, 2010
The hotel was pretty nice. The rooms are warm in the winter, however the lobby is very cold. I think it is too bad that the hotel clerks do not have adequate heat in the winter, they should take better care of their workers. Don't buy international phone cards from the store in the hotel. They do not work, and they will not refund your money.

nice place to stayPosted Oct 30, 2009
i enjoyed staying here. it is true that the bathroom walls are glass and see through. it was a nice location and i had no problems with getting around via subway. i also enjoyed the park conveniently located across the bridge just a few meters from the residence. i was also able to borrow some adapters for my laptop since i forgot to bring some myself. overall i enjoyed my week long stay here.

Great deal!!!Posted Feb 24, 2009 on Hotels.com
For the price I paid I was quite happy with the hotel. The room was somewhat spartan; a double and a single bed, a kitchenette with microwave and stove and a small TV. Nonetheless it was very bright and clean. The front desk staff spoke English and were very helpful. I spent two nights there and they helped me booking a cab to the airport, finding the subway station and changing the Korean keyboards on their computers. The location is not necessarily central but it is about two or three blocks from a subway station on the line 5; within 25 minutes I was in downtown Seoul. The neighborhood is not touristy at all; it's feels like a suburb, not a lot to see but you will have the opportunity to see Koreans going about their daily business, which I found quite interesting. Anyway, if you're looking for a luxurious hotel with tons of tourist attractions nearby, this is not the place for you. But if you're looking for a reasonably priced, spacious and clean room, I recommend the Oh-Mok Gyo Co-Op Residence.

Close to Gimpo AirportPosted Sep 25, 2008
We stayed in this hotel because of its proximity to Gimpo Airport (both are on line 5 of the subway). If you are interested in tourist sites of Seoul, you should book a hotel closer to the city center. The hotel is old but clean, with a 24 hour minimart in the basement. The bed was very comfortable. The front desk staff is conversant with English.

Not impressed.Posted May 22, 2008
Price is right, but the location is bad. Even Taxi driver had a hard time to find it. Subway station(Line 5) is two blocks away and far away from downtown. ROOM IS CLEAN. Has cooking facility. Shower room.

Pretty good for the moneyPosted May 7, 2008
The room I stayed in (studio) was nice - small but efficient! The hotel staff was very nice, accommodating, and tried to help if I had questions or needed something. In-room Internet usage is about $10 a week (10,000 won). I saw a small "business center" (a few computers on one side of the lobby), but I think you had to pay to use those too (not sure because I wanted to be able to check my email etc. in my room). No printers available, but the front desk people told me that if I could save whatever I needed to print on my flash drive, they could print it out for me. I think I read somewhere that they only clean the room every other day (if you are staying multiple days), but someone came in everyday and cleaned and tidied the room. In terms of the condition of the room, it wasn't brand new - you could tell that it's been stayed in (very small stain on wall near desk), but I wasn't planning on staying there 24/7 either, so it was fine - VERY clean otherwise. Bed was comfortable (nice and firm) and not sure about the appliances since I didn't use any of them (room came equipped with microwave, minifridge with 2 free bottle of water, stove, dishes, silverware, cups, sponge and dish soap, hot water boiler). also, if you are planning on doing laundry there-there's usually a wait, so if you can, bring enough clothing for your stay if you're only staying a week or less. you need to have your own soap too and no dryer sheets around there.

Nice clean small roomPosted Mar 3, 2008
The room price is reasonable. Oh-Mok Gyo Co-op is near an access bridge to Han River Park which is perfect for running and enjoying Seoul's Han River. There is also a 24 hour convienence Family Mart in the building which was great to pick up snacks at odd hours if jet lagged. The fitness and laundry center are great, also. The front desk even had transformers free for American guests to use laptops etc. The mini kitchen allows cooking of small meals. The television is a small 13 inch. Internet for the room is a small additional cost. The bathroom is Korean style. Hairdryer is provided. Room has ondol heated floor and is nice to walk on. Beds are low to floor. Linen is changed every other day. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

CO OP - A Great PlacePosted Jan 11, 2008
A great place to stay, but the location is a little further away from Seoul than I thought.

Okay for the pricePosted Nov 12, 2007
This hotel was okay for the price. The bed was very hard and felt like you were sleeping on the floor. The room had a clean kitchenette and some staff was helpful.

Hidden SurprisePosted Sep 1, 2007 on Hotels.com
From the price and the look it seems too good to be true. The lobby of the hotel is very nice and the staff at the front desk is very friendly and can usually speak English. Upon entering my room I was taken back by the shower/sink/toilet combo which are all in the bathroom and get wet when you take a shower and I wasn't sure of the quality since I usually only stay in very nice rooms in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. After the first couple days I got really used to it and eventually started to love my room. I have very high standards and eventually they were all met. I felt very comfortable in my room and it even started feeling like "home." Overall, if you are very picky, I would give this hotel a chance because you can't beat the price. Eventually, you might love this place too!
