As it was my first trip to Seoul and South Korea in general, I searched for hotels on agoda by the map view to pick one near Seoul Station since I would be using it the most often for the 3 full days that I am in South Korea. I settled on K-Grand Hotel & Guest House Seoul based on location (and price) since it seems to be outside a station exit on the map.

The entrance to K-Grand Hotel & Guest House Seoul.
Seoul Station Exit 13 is just a few steps away from the main entrance of K-Grand Hotel & Guest House Seoul. Looks like the map was quite accurate.
Upon entering the building, there are no elevators up to K-Grand Hotel & Guest House Seoul, but just a set of stairs.

I tried to check-in the moment I arrived in the late morning, but unfortunately, the check-in time was followed strictly. Nevertheless, I could leave my luggage here first while I went to take the KTX train to Busan.
Once I came back from Busan at night, my Single Room was ready for me to check-in.

Hangars are available on the wall.
Electricity is activated by the key card. Along with the usual switches and air-con remote control, there is also an emergency torchlight.
The signs pasted on the door on the room information and emergency exits.
The welcoming single bed after a long day.
Quite a few amenities are available in the room including a minibar and a hairdryer.
A bottle of drinking water is provided in the minibar.
A small television is also available.
Instead of following the emergency exits, looks like I could use my own personal emergency exit through the window.
While the room may be a bit small, I think it’s just right for 1 person and the air-conditioning unit cools the room rather effectively in burning hot Seoul.
An emergency call button for a guest in wheelchair. Looks like I’ve gotten a wheelchair-friendly room.
The view of the toilet and shower, which is wheelchair friendly.
A variety of soaps are available, placed on top of the toilet bowl.
A bath towel is provided on the hanging rack.
To keep the shower head at a low level, the water tap is split between the sink and the shower head.
In the morning, a free simple breakfast is provided at the dining area beside the front desk.
Coffee, tea, cereal, butter, jam and cutlery can be picked up from the main table.
Bread and eggs can be picked up from the kitchenette, and you can cook the eggs any style you like yourself.
Overall, a simple and pleasant stay in K-Grand Hotel & Guest House Seoul for the 3 nights that I was there, with the convenient access to Seoul Station less than 5 minutes away, which gets me from and to Incheon Airport and other parts of South Korea conveniently.
