              9.2

              Just one bus from and to the airport, when you get in Incheon with 9 jet lag hours a simple way to get to the hotel is a huge plus.

            • Single
              7.4

              The hotel is conveniently located as it is near subway and shopping areas. The airport bus (6055) also stops outside the hotel.

            • Couple
              3.8

              The room is spacious. On the exterior, it looks like a 5 star hotel. The location is good for airport bus and subway. It is good especially if you have many pieces of luggage and the limousine bus service is regular and in front of the hotel.

              The central air-conditioning of the room cannot be adjusted. It is heater all day. We would prefer it to be adjustable and at least an air-conditioner option. We find it too stuffy even when the windows are opened all day. Due to the design of the windows, air couldn't flow in easily as the windows are flipped on the top. It is no doubt spring time and certain days were quite sunny and the heater was on. The toiletries (eg shower gel, shampoo and shower cap) were not replenished daily. A small bottle of shower gel for 2 persons to share and we showered at least 2 times a day. The comforters were not clean, it had some sort of blood stains on it. The TV reception was not good, the TV programmes were mostly HD, but it wasn't of that quality. The deluxe twin room located at 4th floor (we were given room 412) looks grand at the lift lobby with a private entrance. But the bathroom door couldn't be closed, the vanity top light wasn't working when we checked in, we have to call housekeeping. The bedside table light was not working either. Shouldn't all these essentials be checked before the guests arrive? And worst of all, the toilet bowl choked after day 1 and we had to call the maid for service. We also couldn't understand why a 5 star hotel could not provide free Wifi service in the room. Free service is only available in the hotel lobby. We paid 220 000 won per night for the deluxe twin. Breakfast is not included either. With this price, it falls short of our expectations. I will not stay in this hotel anymore given a choice.

              6.6

              Staff of the hotel is very kind.

              Maybe because of the tourism season, the price was much higher than I stayed before. It was too much higher. If they have the same policy, I will never stay there again.

              Everything is clean and tidy. The staff is very nice and courteous. I really like the idea of having a rental mobile phone available in every room. The hotel is nicely located next to Myeong Dong metro station and Myeong Dong shopping area.

              There is nothing I dislike on Sejong Hotel.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Location is perfect, near shopping areas and all sightseing are at a walking distance. Metro is at 10 meters as well as bus stop for airport. Room is comfortable, good bed. Nice view on Seoul Tower hill.

              The price for breakfast ( 27000 WON ).

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              The location.

              Staff doesn't speak much english which is a problem. We had booked 2 nights in 2 double rooms and 1 night in a twin room ( due to lack of availability for the 3rd night) but upon check in reception confirmed we could stay in our double rooms rhe whole stay. On the first day of our trip they locked us out of our rooms because we "had not answered the phone" all day, and they wanted us to take the twin again for the 3rd night. Which we refused as the double rooms were still available! My room had a horrible smoky food smell coming through the air conditioner , i really felt nauseous every time i came in. I do not recommend this hotel.

              Good location

              Checking out time is too earlier. Too noisy outside window.

              Staff were extremely polite, courteous and helpful. I purchased the membership and got complimentary meal tickets (daily breakfast buffet, two vouchers for Chinese restaurant, two vouchers for Elysee restaurant, vouchers for cake & wine), the meals were execellent - I would highly recommend purchase of the membership, as we also received free night of stay. A must when in Sejong. Take a hike up to the Namsan. Various walking, cycling trails as wells as the stairs to the tower. I went up daily during my 2-week stay and enjoyed every moment. Make sure to take your camera. Centrally located. Very convenient for shopping, restaurants and transportation.

              The gym was not accessible as renovation was under way. However the staff recommended the Namsan - close by.

              Very good location as the bus from the airport stops at it's doorstep (and likewise). Walking distance to shopping and eating places. It's near stop to hop-on-hop-off bus which can take you around the city's points of interests (for new tourists like us). It's an old hotel, but was comfortable and amenities were ok (I like the soap!). The staff were helpful with regard to requests for early check-in and accommodating late check-out to some degree (e.g. allowed us to leave our luggage in some part of the hotel), and giving directions to places. It was a good stay for me and my family.

              We came in autumn, and the heater was on already . . . well, we turned it off and opened the window. Though sometimes you would want it cooler especially when sleeping. There was one time when one of the bath towels was already frayed . . . perhaps their quality control didn't see this. Perhaps also bigger bath towels.

              Most part of the stay in this hotel was awesome Except no free wifi in hotel room n no free toothbrushes Which was pain in the arse.

              Nice position, you arrive just there from airport bus and you have subway in front of.

              Old furniture, breakfast so small quantity. Price due mainly to the position not to hotel service.
