    Value for money

    Good room, service and location.

    Th Shill hotel is located in a strategic center of Gwanghuamun. The D tower and the US Embassy are only a 5 minute walk. I chose this hotel because we had to do our son’s citizenship application. So this was perfect for the location and price. Parking is easy, there is a Starbucks next door and good restaurants surrounding the property - just go to D Tower for food and shopping. The only problem was that the lobby is on the 8th floor - it’s a bit weird. Family rooms are a bit small but does the job if you are there for 1 day.

    My room was slightly dirty and there were some stains up the towels so I wasn't sure if they were clean. The staff was friendly and very polite. :) The breakfast was kind of expensive but good food.
