To say that my stay at Kensington Hotel was horrible would be an understatement! This hotel puts a black stain on the bright reputation of 4-star luxury hotels in Korea! I was looking forward to staying in Yoido next to the river, but I couldn't even stay one night! This hotel is in urgent need of remodeling and updating on every level! You can clearly smell the mold as you enter the hallways and rooms to this hotel. The design and furniture are not only old, but look unkept. The lamps in my room were full of dust! The carpets are ancient and have holes in them! The doors are stain-ridden and they look like they are never cleaned! There are tears and holes in the walls! There are mold spots on the floor and in the bathtub in the bathroom! The stench in the room was so unbearable, I checked out only three hours afters after checking in! In the meantime, I dared to order a salad from room service and received one with raw eggs! This stay was the absolute worse way that I wasted my hard-earned money! Never again!

Located quiet area. Overall service was great but quite old hotel rooms. It stays in 90s. Bedsize was super-small.

Kensington Hotel Yoido, Seoul
Everything was great. Clean room and excellent service. Two things can be improved: 1. Parking staff - didn't offer any help. Indeed, I had to look for the staff to get the car key. 2. Executive level - was asked to leave the room by certain time. Usually, at other hotels you can stay till the closing hour (usually 10 pm) and allowed to finish food and drinks. Here, you must leave without finishing your meal and drinks.
