The hotel is quite outdated. The internet connection was very slow. Considering the room rates no business person should be considering this hotel. I am not entirely sure why, but the taxi fee back to the airport was a ripoff! The meter was showing 95 US dollars.... This is absurd considering the taxi I took from the airport took about... More

This is a very good hotel. Visited this hotel in 2010 and recently. Very friendly staff and very good dining experience. Wish the staff could learn to communicate in English. Breakfast choices are very good. Fresh, healthy and hygienic.

If you manage to get a decent rate, i'd recommend it. it's not the nicest up beat hotel in asia, far from, but the staff is friendly and the hotel offers some nice features. I especially like the big swimming pool and in house golf facilities. The room could do with an uplift to bring them into the 21st century.... More

It was overall a good stay even if I haven't tried many of the hotel features. The room is okay, more on the vintage style than modern style. Washroom is not that big but still very okay. Checkin - checkout was very smooth and staff was nice. Location is okay for business, still a bit far from Hongdae if you... More

This is a really nice property. It isn't modern luxury, but it's a special style of comfort. A large hotel located near the other large hotels. But the best part of my stay was the caring staff. They're constantly asking about the rooms and services. As a Marriott elite I had the red carpet rolled out - lounge access, room... More

Just returned this week from a business trip to Seoul. Stayed at the Renaissance Seoul Hotel. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel is clean, very nice, modern and updated. Beautiful lobby, and a nice selection of restaurants inside the hotel. The breakfast buffet is great. We had it every morning. The buffet is actually nice for dinner as well.... More

Dear Nicole222, Thank you for your review of the Renaissance Seoul hotel. Nice to read that you enjoyed our variety of offering in the buffet, the breakfast is honestly substantial and dinner is popular with locals as much as in house guests. Did you try the Korean oysters in Manhattan Grill? They are simply incredible. Safe travels, merry Christmas, and... More

Well if you liked and miss the 80's you should head to the Renaissance in Seoul. I guess it has been left untouched and it shows. Used carpet in executive lounge decoration of another area and defective heating making noise now and then. Engineer unwilling to fix. Stay away until they renovate.

We stayed at the Renaissance Seoul in April, just now getting around to writing a review. There were many things that were great about our stay, but perhaps the most lasting impression was the outstanding service, always very friendly and thoughtful and responsive to our questions or requests.

In a part of the world where things can be tricky for a Westerner, the Renaissance in Seoul provides an environment that you'll find comfortable and simple. There's almost nothing Korean about this place, actually. It strikes me more like an early 20th century American hotel...down to the tastefully decorated rooms with "antique" fixtures. The bathrooms are small, but well-equipped... More

I liked this Hotel. It lacks any local Korean character, it actually reminded me so much of something form 1980's New York. But be realistic, this is an international business hotel and a good one. Hotels in Seoul are fairly expensive and as this is a bit older than some of it's competitors I'd say it is a little expensive... More
