Modern tower block hotel, can be little bit tricky to get to if you’re new to the whole Korean Overground/Metro system.
If traveling from ITC airport ensure you purchase a ticket to Yeongdeungpo. It’s on the Navy Blue Line (Metro Line 1) and will require you to change at Seoul Station whether using the KTX express or the all stop train. You’ll be wanting the line 1 train towards Incheon and Yeongdeungpo is about 5 stops from Seoul Station.
Some popular travel sites will say that Singil Metro (Line 5 - Purple), is just as close to SB Hotel. Do not get off at Singil it’s a good walk if you have luggage and confusing due to the busy road system.
The hotel is listed as having a hot tub, we thought this meant Jacuzzi but turns out they’re referring to the fact that rooms are equipped with a bath tub. :)
The area around the hotel is busy, plenty of restaurants, pubs and appears popular with the locals. Didn’t really hear much noise despite our room facing the main area, but we were on the 12th floor. See picture below.
Room is cleaned every day, very modern with some high tech toys such as remote control lighting, large flat screen TV and Japanese style toilet with varying electronic bidet functions. There is a small fridge which included complimentary water and fruit juice. Also free coffee and tea.
If sightseeing, get used to using the Metro or local taxis (not super expensive, but the Metro is obviously much cheaper) as SB Hotel is a good distance from the famous Itaewon nightlife and Narman Park/Seoul Observation Tower etc.
All in all we enjoyed our stay here.
