Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn from Wichita, KS Family of 5 vacationing in Seoul
Our family had a very pleasant stay at the Holiday Inn Seongbuk. We booked 2 rooms for a family of 5 with teenagers/adult kids/parents. The rooms were very nice and the room fridge came in very handy for there is a nice little grocery a few doors down. My ONLY caution is that the hotel air conditioner is NOT controlled by the guest, but we found that the hotel staff had floor fans delivered to our rooms and that made all the difference for the hot May nights. The hotel is about a 15 minute brisk walk from the nearest subway so the hotel may be better suited for the business traveler who will be using a taxi for transportation rather than tourists utilizing public transportation (to save expenses with a family of 5!), but the city bus stops right in front of the hotel, as does the airport bus, which turned out to be wonderful! Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't offer complimentary breakfast, as Holiday Inn does in the U.S.A. On Sunday, our family walked to church down the street to Seong-Bok Central Presbyterian Church for an English speaking service, we felt very welcomed and it was one of the nicest things we did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peter P. Good experiences
Staffs, especially housekeeping, are very responsive. Excellent room. Despite the location which is not near the subway, the hotel shuttle is very convenient. Perhaps, more seats in the lobby would be helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey01 Probably the best Holiday Inn I've stayed
I arrived very early after an overnight flight, well before normal check-in time, but the staff organised a room as soon as possible and gave me vouchers for free coffee in the cafe while I was waiting. I was given a room on the Executive Floor, which was as well-equipped as you could hope for.
The food both restaurants was very good - the only suggestion I would make is that for the more adventurous eaters, there should be an explanation on the menu of what the Korean dishes are, not just the dish name.
I only wish every Holiday Inn caeup to the standards set by this one

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peter8210 Room Cleanliness
I always grade the cleanliness as good. But during this trip, I found that the area around the TV and surrounding are not clean for a long period, thick dust had accumulated.
The water in the De-humidifier are not refilled. Even we requested, only 1 to 2 cup of water were refilled, so it does not work for more than 1 to 2 hours
