Good hotel but needs updating
Location is excellent. The hotel is decent. Looks upper class but dated and there's signs of it looking a bit (just a bit) run-down.

6/10 Good

Were quite disappointed on the first night stayed in this hotel, as there is a cockroach in the room. Immediately I asked to change the room. And yet hotel did change a new room straight away. But hotel and room there is a funny smell like a old antique kind of smell. After all everything is ok and is near the station.

Honest Opinion
Hotel staff very helpful and accommodating. Hotel need to be updated though. Our Bathroom very smelly, needs to be sanitized because it smells like pee. Floor Rugs need to be removed because it’s very dirty. Just leave floor aisle with no rugs. Please take this as constructive opinion not criticism . Hotel has very nice, friendly staff with big lobby. Hotel is convenient very close to food/ shopping area.

8/10 Very good

The Sejong is a solid, comfortable place to stay. We especially appreciated the double room with four twin beds, since there were four adult family members. It's an excellent location just steps from the #4 subway line and the airport luxury bus stop. It's showing its age just a bit, but all the amenities are there and it's a very clean, well-run property. Recommended.

The hotel is too old and the toilet cover had stains, the bathroom door's edge is ripped and dirty. Not like to book it again. NEVER!
