New hotel, nice stay
The hotel is a two minute walk going straight from exit 4 on the Sinseoldong subway exit. The staff was helpful and spoke English fluently. There is a 3pm check in that was enforced during my stay due to a booked hotel. The staff "upgraded" my room due to this.. The upgraded room was spacious with two love seats, a desk and a bed. In the room you have control of the air conditioner but it is a single unit installed in the ceiling. Which is very different from what most hotels in America have, a major ac unit with multiple vents. I think this one unit air conditioner is typical in Korea. Liked the western style bathroom even though I didn't fit the tub. The bed was very plush with a sink in effect, which was nice since the other two hotels in Korea had hard beds with light sheets. Very clean and the cleaning lady was very attentive!
I really did not have much of a compliant about the encore hotel. There was a breakfast buffet which had satisfactory food, little flavor for the price. Also note that a hour to ending the buffet food is not replaced, just gone. But this i believe is cultural too I noticed in Paris baguette, dunkin donuts and other restaurants that they made only a limited quantity for the day.
