          Deluxe Triple Room without View
          Stayed 5 nights in March 2023

          It was a very comfortable 5 nights and 6 days.”

          Highly recommended accommodation overall. The location is great, right next to Chungmuro Station, which is next to Myeongdong Station. It's a 10-15 minute walk to Myeongdong Station and only 3 stops from Seoul Station. We stayed in a triple room for two people, and it was very spacious. We were able to communicate with the staff in English, so there were no communication issues. Even if you don't speak English well, they can still understand simple English, so there's no need to worry. They can lend you a transformer (plug adapter) if you ask, so you don't need to prepare one. Our room only had a shower without a bathtub, but it was fine for a few days of travel unless you're picky. They also provide daily cleaning, towel exchange, bed making, and 3 bottles of water. They have toothbrushes, razors, and hair dryers as well. There is a household-sized refrigerator and freezer. You can also use the free laundry and gym facilities. We were able to watch YouTube on the TV, so we enjoyed watching KPOP music videos and getting excited with friends. The only downside is that the rooms with windows facing the atrium have only basic blinds, so the room can be seen from the atrium. I had a room without a window, so privacy was not an issue for me. Also, when I went out into the hallway, I noticed that sound leakage was a problem. It's not a problem when you're inside the room, but you can hear conversations from other rooms clearly in the hallway. The sound of couples being intimate also leaked out. Overall, I think it was a cheap and very good accommodation.

          Awesome!”

          It was very impressive that when I oomunicate to the hotel, the did response me instantly. Whenever I communicate, thei response rate is very fast and excellent! The location is good to get subway or walking distance to Myeong dong tourist spot. Airport shuttle is just around the corner. Room and facilities are good enough for our 3 families. They do room cleaning every day. Dining table, fridge, microwave, plates, glasses and cutlery were great. Especially the staff at the reception area were very friendly and helpful. When we need to find a hair salon, they helped to find us a good one, we love it. When need a taxi, they helped us to get a good service driver as well. W stayed from 14 Feb to 17 Feb for 3 nights then we went to Busan and Jeju. Then we back to this hotel on 22 Feb and back to Australia on 26 Feb, total 7 days we stayd there. They kept our luggage while we visited to Busa and Jeju. We were very happy to stay in there and definitely we will come back again for the next visit. We recommend that hotel for everyone and you won't be disappointed 🙂

          Clean hotel & excellent service!”

          This was my first trip to Seoul and I felt very well-taken care of. Staff were attentive to our needs and also ensured my transportation to and fro to the airport was taken care. I initially had some issues with the pick up to the hotel on the first day (driver was missing) but it was settled within 15 mins upon enquiring with their front desk. Things like this can’t be avoided but just very glad to see the situation resolved quickly. It was just slightly inconvenient as I was travelling with a family but thankfully it was all good. Will be back to stay here again in the future! Location was great, a good 5-7 mins walk to Myeongdong Main Shopping Street and also easily accessible to Chungmuro, another metro station. Thank you once again. And special mention to Dani Park, who ensured my booking was smooth. ❤️

          A gem of a place in Seoul!”

          We struggled to find accomodation to suit our family (two toddlers, grandparents and myself) so Oriens was a real gem to find as it ticked all the boxes. The two bedroom units are spacious enough for families with kids, equipped with all amenities (cooking facilities, washing machine, dishwasher and bath). The location was perfect being situation a two minute walk from Chungmuro station and the airport limousine bus stop. The room was serviced each day and very clean and comfortable with super friendly staff. For the price point I don’t think you can find a better option in the heart of Seoul. We stayed for two weeks and will definitely stay again if we come to Seoul without hesitition!
