Situated in the Southwest of Seoul. the location is very vibrant, clean and easy access to the subway on line 2 & 5.
The area is full of good restaurants so much choice.
We only stayed in the hotel for one night having travelled from London, so very tired travellers. We found the staff at Maru very helpful, so friendly with a bit of English spoken.
It's a new hotel with some very modern trends in the rooms, it's better to be a tiny bit used to using gadgets to turn on lights and hot water, the staff at check in mad it look so easy, and it was!
We found the bed a bit on the hard side. A fab wet room, with all the facilities you would require on a business trip to Seoul or just to visit this great city.
The breakfast located in the restaurant in the basement was traditional Korean, help yourself and plenty.
Sadly I can't comment on the value for money as this was a business trip so the hotel was paid for us!
But I would pay to stay here, great location and very clean hotel.
One footnote: Dear Hotel Maru, please do not phone your guests at 7am to advise us that breakfast is now being served!!
