    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Simple, convenient and comfortable.

      It was really a pleasant stay, just above Gongdeok station where you can easily access popular spots such as Myeongdong or Hongnik University. Around the hotel there is plenty of food choices to choose from, with even a 7-11 at the hotel lobby for the most lazy tourist. As the trip was for my wedding anniversary, the hotel staff was so nice as to provide me with a complimentary free upgrade. As for the room, it was very clean and modern. Shower facilities are sufficient with the exception of toothpaste and toothbrushes (they are not provided). You have complimentary bottled water and tea/coffee as well and there is a gym too. Overall, my stay at GLAD MAPO was excellent and I highly recommend it.

      The bedsheets should be changed daily and not just tidying up. Overall the hotel is quite convenient to metro.

      There was unpleasant smell in rooms. First room was really bad so I moved to next and it was better but still has the issue sometimes. Temperature in the refrigerator was too high.

      Hotel was in a great location and the room was nice. In the family twin however, the desk placement was poor. Gym was also closed despite booking mentioning that it was available during stay

    • 8.0.Very good

      The interior was excellent. Facilities were almost unavailable due to COVID 19 situation and the distance between the parking lot and the hotel was a bit inconvenient.
