Glad Hotel Yeouido Seoul
The Glad Hotel falls in between boutique design and practical business hotel. Simple and modern rooms have niceties such as bathrobes, a selection of pillows, and Bluetooth speakers while maximizing small spaces with open shelving and separate showers. A traditional ondol
room is available for travelers who want to experience a more classic Korean bedroom with low furniture, and apartment-style Glad House rooms have cooking and dining facilities. The restaurant serves a variety of Korean and Western buffet options from early morning until late night, and the Mark T bar (named for Mark Twain, a whiskey aficionado) is known for its selection of single-malt whiskeys. Yeouido is the financial center of Seoul
and can be quiet in the evenings and on weekends, but trains make easy connections to Seoul's more lively and tourist-friendly neighborhoods.
