a very sound and enjoyable stay
We stayed for two nights and had the most enjoyable experience. Great service, wonderful room with view on the ancient city gate. The Executive Lounge offered nice food and drink options during their "happy hours" and it was nice to also be able to enjoy the indoor swimming pool (after vaccination check). Overall one of the best stays we had in Korea. Would always visit again.

Outstanding hotel. Very very nice but not fussy. The service was amazing - they went above and beyond every time we needed help. They helped us with Covid test site, with taxis, with recommendations, all were excellent. And the breakfast was fantastic.
