We arrived at the Somerset Hotel early in the morning as we had an overnight flight from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolis. We were given a room soon after 9 am, and then enjoyed a bountiful breakfast in the attractive dining area. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet and we were able to get some much needed rest before embarking on a tour of Somerset Palace--well worth the visit. We had a delicious dinner in the Italian Restaurant on the premises and then sat a bit in the small, delightful park outside. After a very restful night, we were picked up by our dependable driver from International Taxi Co. and taken to the Incheon Airport for our early flight. We found our entire experience in Seoul to be a pleasure and would love to return for a longer time. Jack and Jane Anderson, Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania, USA

The staff was friendly and helpful. Most spoke enough English to communicate needs. Must have had power surges because several night the AC shut off but staff was always helpful to get it back on. Room was straightened every night but we stayed 9 nights so by the end the bathroom needed to be cleaned and floor swept.
The location was great for lots of sight seeing, I would stay again... I would just ask to have to bathroom scrubbed!

Pros: proximity to subway, walkable to many tourist sites, good restaurants nearby, good value hotel, friendly staff
Cons: definitely not 4-star as described, more like a solid 3-star; thin walls (heard everything), very poor bed
A solid 3-star hotel, a good value in the middle of the city. The property is maintained well. Room was tiny but this was expected. Would stay here again if we needed a budget hotel, otherwise we would upgrade to something larger with better soundproofing.

Stayed at hotel for 10 days and was truly impressed. Clean spacious room and the staff was beyond kind and professional without exception. Unlimited Free bottled water, WiFi and Air conditioning included in room price and also access to free laundry facility. Access to subway line 1 & 6 only a 5 minute walk away. Several korean restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores within a block of the hotel. I would choose this place again in a heartbeat.
