Pros: location, in room facilities
Cons: maybe breakfast.
Location: great location, seoul cinema to watch movies, cheong yejeon river.
Staff always greet you when you enter or exit. room is small but the room facilities are great. Breakfast is very basic, cup noodles and bread but enough to get you going. Availability of other food is very near to the hotel. location is great, very short walking distance to jongno 3-ga metro. Tv channels are aplenty. a computer in the room in case you need to do any work or research, a pity it does not have a speaker else it will be great.

Pros: Complimentary bottled water and easy to access Wifi.
Cons: Some misadvertising regarding breakfast. The simple breakfast was fine, but advertised as "continental breakfast". It is simple but perfectly adequate
Perfectly adequate room, booked a twin and received room with double and single beds. Good standard of cleanliness. ( By Japanese standards )

Great hotel! Great location in the center of Seoul

Pros: Clean, Great location, Helpful staff, Good breakfast, Reasonable price.
Cons: It was a little challenging getting a constant temperature on the shower.
Location: Very close to many of the Palaces and great shopping areas of Seoul.
We loved the GS Hotel! We were picking up our son after he served a 2 year LDS mission in the Korea Seoul Mission. The hotel was right in the center of Seoul and close to many things we wanted to see. It's also close to the subway system. We originally booked a few night in the GS Hotel, but ended up staying there nearly the whole week. It was well worth the extra few dollars to get the breakfast. The room was clean. The hotel staff was extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Seoul area.

Near subway and would have been difficult to find without a gps and other reviews on Trip advisor. The room was small but we were not in the room except to sleep so it was fine. For the price you can't beat this hotel.

Pros: Location and friendly staff.
The GS hotel is great place to stay in Seoul. It is close to everything, very reasonably priced and the staff were most helpful. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for value for money. The room was a bit small but it is not a glitzy 5 star hotel.

We have stayed her twice. It is in a really great central location. Walking distance to most of the sites, and excellent subway connections. Staff are helpful and friendly and the room is very clean. We like the traditional style decor. Our son loved the large tv with lots of baseball channels! It is simple, but all one needs to have a comfortable stay. Will continue to stay at this hotel when passing through Seoul.

Decent hotel close to subway station

Initially my experience was really good... the room was a good size and cleaned daily. It really started to suck when we noticed some cigarette smoke smell coming into our room. This is weird because the whole hotel is supposed to be non-smoking. We were very upset so naturally we complained to the front desk. They acknowledged our complaint and said that they would talk to the guest staying in the room above our room, but the next day we could still smell it. So disappointing.

The best hotel I stayed in korea so far

5 out of 5
by from Singapore
Posted Jul 27, 2015
Cons: There is no washing machine, but well there are shops available around the corner for laundry.
Pros: 1. The hotel staff is polite and professional. They are also fluent in English, this allow us to find some places easily. They even went to the extend to call for us when we needed to get some famous Honeybutter chips. Excellent service! 2. The breakfast is simple (cereal w/ milk, banana, orange etc) but just what we need before heading out. 3. The room is rather spacious and the TV comes with many channels! Some days we felt that we shouldnt go out and simply stay in the hotel and chill. 4. The bathtub is in the living room (*shy*), there are also shower heads in the toilet, but it is a must try for the experience! 5. A computer is also available to surf the net, mainly to prepare ourselves for the next day's schedule. 6. The location is pretty centralize, it is near dongdaemum, insadong and myeodong. 7. The hotel is easy to locate, there is a sign board near the main road. 8. There are also drinks free for consumption in the fridge. 9. The bed is also fluffy, so much better than the other hotels that we stayed in. Overall I find this hotel to be excellent, instead the name GoodStay Hotel! Worth every penny :)
