Hotel Mare was a wonderful hotel to stay in. Considering the cheap room-prices, the standard was excellent! We found our room to be cozy and clean. The staff was so nice and they knew english very well. The subway was ten minutes away. I recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Seoul.
Room dark and dingy. Mini bar sparse. Window opened onto air condition unit and brick wall of building next door. Unable to open window shutter as mosquitoes came in - got many bites! Used soap bar + toothpaste left in bathroom. Breakfast poor. Expensive for what we thought was deluxe room
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Of course not forgetting the 52 inch TV in the room.
The water pressure from the shower is a bit too low.
Really excellent value-for-the-money hotel! I stayed at the deluxe room with my friend and the staff gave us an extra bed without any extra payment which was really friendly. I don't have anything bad to say about the staff, they were really friendly and it was easy to ask things as they all understood English well. The free breakfast wasn't bad either, some omelette, ham, toast, salad and rice with vegetables and some orange juice. What I liked the most in this hotel was the extra luxury amenities like big 52 inch plasma tv which was connected to the computer and a service that had lots of free movies to watch. Also the bathroom was quite nice with a jacuzzi and a Japanese style high tech toilet with bidet. The location was good, too.
The rooms aren't the cleanest ones possible and sometimes there's some noise from the outside but most people can cope with that.
