President Hotel Seoul Review : Biggest Quadruple Room For Families

 


Looking for a hotel in Seoul for a family of 4?

If you ever searched for a hotel to sleep 4 pax in Seoul, you would probably get a mixed bag of hotels. 

There will be a combination of 2 separate rooms, a room with 3 beds and if you are lucky enough a 2 bedroom hotel. The latter would usually be smaller at about 200-300 sqft and comes only with 2 double beds. The double beds are usually 137 x 191 cm smaller than a typical queen-size bed at 152 x 190cm. This can be a tight squeeze if you sleep with 4 full-size adults/teens.

Hotel President Quadruple Room is a whopping 685 sq feet with not 2 but 3 beds consisting of 1 extra large double bed and 2 double beds. If space and affordability is what you are looking for, you have to check this out.

Hotel President

For our recent trip to Seoul, we found a room with 2 Single Size beds and 1 large double bed (similar to king size) at Hotel President. Hotel President is right in front of Seoul Plaza, next to Lotte Hotel. 

Close to everything

The hotel is within walking distance of 2 subways, City Hall and Euljiro 1, and about 7 minute's walk to the Myeongdong shopping district. The hotel is in a good location with a convenience store next to the hotel, eateries around the corner and major Seoul attractions within walking distance.

Check-in

Check in Counter

We arrived early in the morning. Check-in time was at 3pm. However, we could leave our bags at the concierge before check-in.

Hotel President Lobby

There is a waiting area and a cafe should you wish to wait. The cafe prices are a tad pricey, so it may be better to head out to the nearby coffee shop for a drink instead.

The Room

Our room was a quadruple room and was meant to accommodate 4 adults. The room size is about 678 feet², and it is probably the largest 2-bedroom hotel you can find in Seoul.

Quad Room Hotel President

The room is interesting. It technically has 2 rooms. 

Living and Large Double Bed

Upon entrance, you will have a large room with a large double-size bed, a sitting area with couches, a coffee table, and a flat-screen tv. This is useful and provides a space to eat and interact with the family. 

Half Toilet

There is a half toilet in this room.

Mini Fridge

There is also a coffee/tea counter that comes with a fridge.

Bedroom


The other room is only accessible through the main room. It comes with 2 comfortable size super single beds. 

Writing table

There is also a work table and chairs on the other end with a separate flat-screen tv.

Dresser

The room has an attached bath and a make-up area. 

View from the room

You get a city view with the street heading up to Myeongdong and Isadong as your view.

Landmark View

On the side, you can also see the N Seoul Tower.

Daily Room Service


There was daily room service to clear up the room. We find the room spacious and very comfortable during our stay. It felt very homely to return to a hotel where everyone has personal space. This is great, especially if you are travelling with teens.

During winter, the hotel offers a cooling/heating system. Depending on your need, you can opt for a warm or cool room. The decor may be a little dated, but it was fine with us. The hotel does provide smaller renovated rooms.

The price of our rooms was around $200 per night. It was not the cheapest, but it was affordable compared to getting 2 separate rooms for the 4 of us.
