Four Points by Sheraton Seoul, Namsan is conveniently situated in the heart of Yongsan-gu, in central Seoul, making it a perfect gateway to this dazzling destination. Just a 10-minute walk through a linked underpass will get you to Seoul Station, which connects to the rest of the city. From there, you can visit Seoul Tower or Namsangol Hanok Village, or even take a hike through Namsan Park. Getting to the hotel from the airport is easy too, with the Airport Express Train located at Seoul Station.
This modern and sophisticated hotel shares a building with a small shopping center, so you’ll never go hungry in the middle of the night. In the morning, pop down to the Lotte Mart or Starbucks for a quick coffee fix to prep yourself for an exploration of the vibrant city. Be sure to come prepared to shop at Dongdaemun Market and Namdaemun Market, two of Seoul’s most popular shopping districts, just a few stops away from the hotel.
How to Get There
Stayed here for three nights on business. I met with a client in the bar area and ordered 4 small Americano coffees - it came to $37.50!!! The coffee wasn’t even that good!!
The hotel is nice enough, good breakfast (luckily the coffee is free!!) pleasant staff and rooms. Great location a short walk from Seoul station.
The hotel is 400 m from Seoul Station, directly connected via subway line 4 underground passage exit no. 12. The rooms are new, clean, though slightly small. No bath tub and the shower is quite tight with fairly low water pressure. Other than that, great value for money and very convenient to sightseeing places and Incheon airport. If returning to the hotel after 10 pm, it is recommended to walk on the street level as many homeless seek shelter in the subway. They're harmless though and another reason is that the subway exit may be closed. From Seoul station entrance, go down to street level, turn right and walk straight for about 5 mins until you see KDB building across the street. Do press the button at the pedestrian crossing (it's quite a wait) and cross the traffic light to Four Points on the right of KDB building. Pick up Korean chicken wings for supper from restaurants along the way.
If you need to do business and need quick access to subway, train and buses then this is a good choice. The rooms are new and clean and comfortable. The staff were very attentive and helpful. They helped me book taxis a bunch of times. Overall very nice stay.
I spent here 5 nights on a business trip. I had to travel outside Seoul by train almost every day, hence the location less than 10mins walking from Seoul Station is just great! Rooms are not ok in size, very clean and super comfy bed. Spacious bathroom, also impeccable. Fast free WiFi. Nice view from the 26th floor, overall extremely quiet. Very nice check-in area/lounge, fast and efficient personnel. Behind the hotel there are several cafés and restaurants, convenient stores just downstairs next to the entrance. One of the best hotels in this range ($120/night approx) I’ve ever stayed in Seoul!
Four Points is a pretty basic hotel chain in general, and this hotel looks really impressive on photo. Actual room is ok, bathroom is good, esp if u get the deluxe room. Views are limited as it's surrounded by 3 buildings but Seoul station view is breathtakingly unblocked.
Breakfast selection is fantastic , except it doesn't change for the 5 nights we were there.
Being connected to Seoul station is a major plus, though be aware it's a pretty long walk to AREX the airport railroad.
Limited people use the shuttle but I found it convenient to get to shopping at Dongdaemun.
Everything is a plus, except they are the first hotel that didn't do a thing for us (I'm platinum member) even when I explicitly said we are celebrating a birthday during one of the 5 nights.
