Just book it!
I was a bit dubious when I saw Holiday Inn Express in Seoul. It was top-notch in every way. Terrific breakfast, great elegant room. Wonderful views. Close-in to Hongdae neighborhood and university area and all that it offers.

6/10 Good

The design of the bathroom was terrible. There was this wall front of the toilet and almost had to sit sidewards. Property itself was clean.

8/10 Very good

Nice, safe and convenient location for first time tourists. Will recommend others and will stay there again on my next visit to Seoul. The only inconvenience I have is not having in room iron and microwave. Have to go to some other floor to iron.

6/10 Good

The location of the hotel is great and in general the stay was nice. However, the room I stayed was not very clean and it looked as if they had not been taking care of it much for a while, it also needed some rennovations, particularly the bathroom. There were some stains in the bathroom, I asked the staff to give an extra clean up to the bathroom but they did not, even when they say they did. There were also some stains in the carpet. It was a very hot week and the AC was not working properly. Breakfast was okay but could be better, there were not a lot of options.

4/10 Fair

Light switch is on a weird position on the head side of the wall where the pillow will accidentally press the switch. Room was dirty and lack of basic amenities like comb, laundry bag.
