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.

How to Get There
We weren’t expecting much but this hotel has taken us by surprise at how modern and clean it is! We chose this hotel for efficient travel and convenience as it’s connected to Seoul station.
The bedroom is not big but quite spacious for the two of us and very modern with a neutral palette. The desk comes with built-in plugs of various volts compatible with all of our chargers without the need of adapters. How thoughtful ! The room itself is modern and super clean. Plugs are everywhere which is important for gadget lovers like us.
We slept extremely well. Mattress and pillows were comfortable. Bathroom was clean although not as modern as the bedroom.
AC worked well. Free Wifi is excellent. Our room number is 2525.
Front desk staffs were all very courteous and helpful whenever we needed any information regarding our travel in Seoul.
Location of the hotel is connected to Seoul station although it can be quite a walk. Taxis are plenty once you hit the streets. Beware of walking around the area at night, there are many homeless! Otherwise, we love the hotel. As well as its location which is near to many tourist areas.
Overall, it was a very good stay!!
The hotel itself was a little tucked away but was very near Seoul station and is interlinked to the station, however it’s around 5 mins walk from outside of the hotel and 10 mins through the interlink. The staff were pleasant and service was good. I would definitely rate as a 4 star and I would definitely stay here again!
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and I was a happy camper. The room was furnished simply but it was well-appointed and clean. Sleep quality was also very good as the sheets were of good-quality and the bed was quite comfortable. They give 2 free bottles of water each day and the room had a water kettle so you can prepare coffee or tea.
The bathroom was very clean and there was a hair dryer in the cabinet. The shampoo and body wash were in a dispenser attached to the shower area.
We had breakfast at The Eatery and the selection was adequate. I ordered an omelet from the guy at the egg station and was surprised to be given a plain one. I had expected it to have onions, green peppers, mushrooms, ham and cheese but it was just pure egg and folded into an omelet. I did not get the chance to try the Korean fare and mainly stuck to the bacon and french toast.
I have to commend the Front Desk Staff who were all accommodating and spoke excellent English.
The only thing I found wanting was the location of the property. I had thought that it would be within walking distance of the Myeongdong shopping street but it wasn't. There were also not many restaurants near the area.
Overall however, barring the expectations on the location, it is a wonderful hotel.
This is our first visit to south korea. We stayed at this hotel as the last stop in Seoul. The location is excellent with connectivity to Seoul station subways, trains, airport express. The room was quite spacious for a city hotel that is housed within a office commercial tower. Check in was smooth. Staff was friendly and helpful. We tried the breakfast buffet once and thought the range was relatively limited compared to other hotels of similar branding/class. But no complains. Check out process was fuss free. The overall feel is peaceful, quiet and uncrowded which was what we liked. No time to check out the gym.
We think the location and connectivity factors really make this a good choice for us. It made a difference for us as we made our on own to visit the various attractions and dustricts in Seoul. On the day to checked out, we got onto the airport express train through the underpass, walk ways links and then into Seoul station and on way to the airport (via KTX normal stops train) at incheon all within 1 hour 30mins from hotel check out to stepping into departure hall. We will stay at this hotel if we go back to Seoul again with our kids in future.
On the surface, the hotel would not look like a top notch hotel. It is a Four Points hotel. However, it exceeded my expectations! The room was small, however. The staff were always smiling and considerate! The buffet in the morning was one of the best I had at a hotel. Yes, it is pricey, but it was excellent and worthy. The electronic control in the room was very modern and efficient. Of course, its location is perfect, the middle of Seoul!
