How to Get There
Had a relatively short stay in Courtyard Seoul Namdaemun, location is great and staff throughout this hotel are friendly and service oriented. What makes the staff in this hotel really stand out is that they all speak excellent English which makes communication is breeze!
Have to give a special thanks to Sam, from Concierge - who is friendly, attentive and helpful with my queries on taking the Metro!
Keep up the good work!
Great stay! Well trained staffs at all levels, speaks good English and extremely polite. Good location and great breakfast. Near city hall metro that takes you to all part of Seoul easily if you want to experience local network.
I was in Marriott Namdaemun on business trip. Location of hotel was perfect, very close to main shopping areas, business activities and public transportation. Beautiful view on TV tower from room window. Perfectly designed, very clean and comfortable rooms in hi-tech style. Great selection of continental and Korean dishes at breakfast, and wide range of juices, descent coffee. Very friendly, helpful and polite employees.
There are only few issues i could mention: I missed very much possibility of opening window and breathing fresh Seoul air in the mornings. Strange, because there was self-rescue kit in the room (!), which allows to evacuate in case of fire, but to do this you probably need to break the glass. Besides, windows were fronting the busy street with traffic day and night, and insulation from street noise was not enough. Second: not all drinks in the bar are available in glasses. For soju or rice wine, for example, the only option is to buy full bottle, which is too much for one person.
Except for the mentioned points, everything else was either very good, or perfect. Thank you for the wonderful stay i had here!
