Overpriced, not bigger than hotels right inside MD
Stayed because of their Line rooms, nothing special. HOtel is about 10 mins walk to the west end of Myeongdong. Stayed 5 nights, They do not review shower, bath, shampoo soap. Need to call each night for refill. But they instead provide new tooth brush each day that is totally unncesssary. We changed room in our 3rd night. The room bath tub was extremely dirty. Also the room does not have much room. Myeongdong hotel rooms are usually small, but this hotel is way out of the main shopping area already. We misplaced an ordinary white room key and they insisted on charing KWR11,000. This is the 1st time I have been charged for loosing room key. Unless there is no other rooms in the area, suggest that you look into any other hotel in Myeongdong since the price and space will be similar, and you stay somewhere truly convienent.

Lovely Nice Hotel
I really love Sotetsu The Splaisir Hotel. Every single time I come to Seoul I stay at this hotel. I find its location great. It is located very close to the street market and the main shopping area. The City Hall (and the metro station) is also 7 min away from the hotel. The hotel is very modern and completely clean. The front desk staff is always helpful and sweet. Each time I try to stay in a LINE Friends Room. Previously I stayed in a Brown Room (blue color room), and this time I requested a Cony Room (pink color room). I must say, I liked the Cony Room more than the Brown Room. It was more fun for me to stay there, pink color made me feel happier. The only negative that I can mention about this room is that there is no bathtub. Also I find the bathroom amenities not of the best quality (they don’t leave any fragrance on your body). I do not have any other issues, even small ones, with this hotel.

Poor service with Staff who doesn't speak Eng
When I proceed to check-in after the queue, I ask the staff about my reservation in English but he insisted and repeatedly requested me to speak in Mandarin instead which I don't. I am very disappointed about the service he offered me. If he doesn't speak English, he should ask for assistance from other staff to serve me instead of strongly requested me to speak in Mandarin. The beds of the room is large... so large that I can't pull out the chair and sit at the table to have my ordered fried chicken... which I have to sadly sit on the bed to have my supper... Location is convenient that it was 7 mins away from CityHall station and only took me 15 mins to Myeong Dong shopping area

Poor 2.0
They could not handle my reservation well. My reservation was 3 night, but they just said my reservation was separated 2 night and 1 night because of their system. It took 30 minutes to check in.

Early arrival
We reached in the morning and no rooms is available for check-in till earliest 10am and subjected to additional charges. They upgraded us to a deluxe room instead. Requested that they process our check in 1st so that we can get our keys immediately at 3pm. But still delayed when we return in the afternoon. Allow renting of umbrellas with a deposit.

Location, location, location
1. Shower - both a handheld shower & a rain shower head and the water pressure is great! 2. Location - located at the heart of Seoul. Close to bus & train stations. Walking distance to Myeondong Street Market, Namsan cable car to N Seoul Tower, Shinsegae Dept. Store, Namdaemun market, Deoksugung Palace, Gwanghwamun Square & Gate, all of Seoul's museums and many more. 3.
