About Hotel Aropa - Seoul

Smoke-free central hotel, blocks from City Hall

Metro: 4 blocks

Hotel Aropa places you on a residential street in central Seoul: a 6-minute walk from the steps of City Hall and a block or 2 from restaurants. Guests praise the location, a 3-minute walk from the subway, where you can speed to attractions or reach Seoul Station in 10 minutes.

Minutes to Namdaemun gate

Popular Myeong-dong retail district, filled with beauty and clothing shops, street food, and narrow alleys, is a 10-minute trip by metro. If you’d like to explore local history, a 7-minute walk takes you to Namdaemun, a 14th-century pagoda that once helped fortress the city.

A café and a men’s spa

The window-lined café, with indoor and outdoor seating, is a nice spot for a latte, fresh juice, and a snack. For men looking to freshen up, there’s a barbershop plus a spa with services that include massages and shoe shines.

Free WiFi and a minibar

After a day out, you can check email with free WiFi and relax in front of the cable LCD TV with free bottled water and a treat from the minibar. 127 guestrooms feature minimalist, dark-wood furnishings and ensuite bathrooms, and include free tea, plus a bathrobe and slippers.

Reasonably priced hotel at a good location
This is my 4-5th time staying at Aropa Hotel as I find the location vv convenient. Walking distance to Myeongdong and Namdaemun and is so accessible by subway (City Hall Station Exit 7) and Airport Limousine bus is just across the street at Plaza Hotel. This time round I gave “comfort” just 3/5 as my room felt stuffy. It’s autumn and the AC might be switched to heater mode. However even when the AC/ heater is switched off, the room still felt warm that I had to open one of the windows to let cool air in. One thing that I would say is that whenever I stay here I often hear doors banging especially in the morning and at night. It could be the way the doors are designed? Perhaps the hotel management may want to look into this. Or could be the walls are thin? In any case - if you are a light sleeper you may be affected by the noise. That said, I would still choose to stay here again mainly for the location and the pricing is reasonable.

Great location, amazing staff
The hotel location is great, within walking distance to Myeongdong, Namdaemun, and also the Palace. Most of the staff are able to speak English (a plus point for me) so it helps with our communication. Right across the hotel, you may also use the Airport Shuttle bus to go to the Airport (if you're carrying lots of luggage back home).

Good stay at a great location
The room is small but was within our expectations. Hotel is near to train station and walking distance to myeongdong and nadaemung. However, we are disappointed with the air conditioning system. We are unable to adjust the temperature or blower and we end up having to open our window to allow the air to flow in and cool the room. Luckily it is just entering spring so the outside wind was cold, if the same were to happen during summer we would have made a serious complaint about this
