The greatest asset this hotel has, off the bat, is being right off Gongdeok Station which has the Airport Express line stopping here making transportation to, and from, Incheon International Airport very simple.
The hotel, with its height and shiny exterior gives it a luxurious feel as does the spacious interior though the lobby is rather simple. I was told they don't allow room checks but was still given a thorough explanation of the rooms offered. But the feel I got with the descriptions provided, such as the standard queen-sized beds, lively buffet, hotel indoor swimming pool, and such was that it was a luxury hotel which the Lotte Hotel chains are known to try and aim for. Business, family, and luxury travelers should feel at ease here.
On the other hand, Gongdeok isn't known to be a terribly exciting neighborhood (think largely residential and office buildings) although with its location and transportation, it should be fairly easy for guests to travel to nearby tourist attractions and more exciting neighborhoods.
Underneath the hotel is an arcade of shops and restaurants which should offer some convenient and standard Korean dining options.Recommended for:

Though I find that this hotel is pretty expensive for the area, you definitely get your money's worth. FIrst of all, the hotel is situated directly above Gongdeok station, which is a transfer station for Gimpo and Incheon airports, which means you can be there in under an hour. Gongdeok Station is also on Line 6, which makes it a great place to connect to the rest of the city (Itaewon is on the same line, and Hongdae is just a transfer away at Hapjeong). The hotel is lovely, and there are different types of rooms you can get, including a city view room and a garden room. There's also a quaint park in front of the hotel which is perk during a temperate spring/fall afternoon. All told, this is a great place for those who have a little bit of extra money to spend and want the rest of the city to be easily accessible!Recommended for:

This hotel is both close to fun, central areas of the city and right on top of a shopping mall and a direct line to the airport. The first thing I noticed was the small park they have built in front, which is a lovely place to just sit in and relax if the weather is good. The next thing that stood out to me was the helpful staff. They were really helpful and thorough. The rooms themselves were spacious and modern, equipped with desks and even a range of international plug sockets. The bathrooms were also generous. You can request 'city view', 'garden view' or 'bath view', which gives you the luxury of being able to sit in the bath and look out over the night sky. The hotel also boasts a gym, a laundry room and best of all a large pool, reserved exclusively for guests.Recommended for:
