Great service, good location and a good place to do business from. From reception to departure the service level is good. The room is clean, fresh but small. Free wifi and a good working desk and a great view of the green hills. Food is exceptional and well served. A surprise for what is a older hotel but the maintenance... More

After hearing the great experiences from my friend, I brought my family here to have a few relaxing days to end my busy trip in Seoul. The executive business room is very nicely designed with every single detail being set up correctly. The view of the Namsan and Tower is spectacular. And service is nice and quick. But the most...

Smooth and quick check-in / check-out. Extremely comfortable and clean rooms (I have tried several room types). All rooms are very functional and well decorated. Breakfast & diner buffet is excellent, however diner buffet is served until 21:30 that might be early for many. However, there is a smaller dinner buffet at The Library on the ground floor and other... More

Having visited the Shilla Hotel on a number of occasions, I have to say that the rooms, restaurant, and service levels are consistently faultless. The extensive breakfast is without doubt the best I have experienced in any hotel. The only slight negative with this hotel is location which has little of interest within walking distance, but given how inexpensive taxi's... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Shilla and enjoyed it very much, especially the concierge service is exellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The fitness center is one of the best we have ever experienced, all new machines. There is a great pool too and a nice indoor bath.

We stayed at the Shila for 7 nights and had a wonderful experience. Staff is attentive and the staff to guest ratio is very high. Checkin and checkout was quick and smooth. Concierge service was thorough and quick. Room service was done with impeccable manners, pool maintenance was fantastic (they checked the temperature and PH level hourly, so different from... More

I have stayed at the Shilla several times per year for the past several years and consider it my home away from home in Seoul. The gracious service is impeccable and the lounge is a great place to grab a drink and relax. Compared to other hotels in Seoul, the quality of English in the lobby and lounge are excellent... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. You enter the room and the hall way light automatically switch on and the vertical blind on the window slides up. Very clean room with 65 inches smart TV. From the room, has view of the swimming pools and the university. Very quiet in the room, would not think there is anyone else staying on... More

I have stayed many times at the grand Hyatt while in Seoul. This time I decided to try the shilla as it was recommended by some colleagues. Well I was pleasantly surprised. I liked the grand Hyatt but I like the shilla better! In short, they know about the needs of their guests. From the second we walked in with... More

We had a room upgrade as a Leading Club members. Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms. Quit big outdoor swimmingpool area. There is a shopping centre just in few steps from the hotel. Luxury and comfortable!
