Perfect Balance of Location/Value for Tourists
Fantastic location for the first time Seoul visitor. Right in the heart of the Myeong-dong area. If you are interested in shopping, street food options, and being relatively close to major attractions you can't miss. We booked a standard room with King Size bed which was accurate, the room isn't huge, but it's large enough. The complimentary Airport Shuttle was a bonus, it only runs twice a day, so make sure it works for you. Also they participate in Tax Free, they will issue you a receipt that you can take to the airport and get immediate cash back. That was a very pleasant surprise. The only issue was the carpeting. It was a bit stained but that is likely just an issue with the age of the hotel and it being winter. I would stay here again.

more frequent shuttle bus needed
Everything was great except that the shuttle bus to and from both airports is not frequent enough. As far as I know, there is only 1 shuttle per day and I think that is certainly an area for improvement.

Royal Hotel
I am very pleased with the services provided by the hotel especially that my daughter left one of her airpod headphone in the shuttle bus to the airport, i then email the hotel to see if they have found it. The hotel quickly responded saying that they have found it and kept it for me.
Quang Vi, hk3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Everything was perfect at this hotel. Good location, clean, very good service. However free shuttle bus service is kind of misleading. They only provide service twice a day to the hotel once at 6:30 AM and once at 3:00 PM. They should put this in their website. Also there is no airport shuttle service from the airport to the hotel.

Decent hotel located in a prime spot for shoppers
Checking in was really fast and the room was as shown in the photos. The room was clean, comfortable and located right in the heart of Myeongdong which is perfect for shoppers. However, the bath towels had brown stains on them even though they smelled like they had been bleached. Glad they offer free parking for guests staying at the hotel.

Value for money in the heart of the city
This was more than adequate for the good price paid. I had a twin room with my daughter whose primary reason was to shop for cosmetics and skin products, so this hotel being smack bag in the middle of the best area for this was an absolute life saver. The hotel is clean, modern and professionally run. Check in was faultless and they have a free shuttle bus to and from the airport twice a day which we used to get to the airport. While you don’t need to book from the airport you do to return to It and I nearly fell foul of that one. Our room was in places a bit stained and dated but the cleanliness, air conditioning and the really comfortable beds more than compensated for this. I’m sure there is better and there is most certainly worse but for the money spent I feel this more than provided.
