8/10 Very Good

Bad First Day, but overall OK
We had a lovely stay, however, we've been sent to a different hotel on the first night due to booking the hotel via The receptionist insisted that we are not booked in their system, and therefore, was sent over to a much uglier and uncomfortable hotel nearby. This disrupted our first sightseeing day as we had to pack our luggage again to transfer back to Hotel Icon. They also provided the same breakfast every single morning (toasted bread, jam, coffee, cereals, muffin, orange juice)

Excellent subway station nearby, just use exit 6 of Jong ro3 station since the hotel is tucked in an alley and there are swarms of alleys in the area or the first time will be so hard to find even locals have a hard time helping with directions here while map apps will have you walking in circles. On the other hand, these awesome alleys are filled with crowded, authentic, charming eateries where natives are socializing until late so it is great to get away from the commercialized tourist zones and see a bit of what the locals do here at night.

Two of us stayed in a room with 1 double bed and 1 single bed for 4 nights at end of October 2018. I would highly recommend this hotel for the elevator facility and the locality within 10 minutes walk to food and subway station at budget hotel price. The one thing it can improve on is the hot water shower. It is not consistent and you get surprises as it can become too hot or too cold intermittently.

This hotel was basic, but very clean and friendly. It was in a wonderful area - close to the shopping and arts area, and also within walking distance of palaces.
