Stayed for just one night but everything was perfect: fast and nice check in on the 23rd floor lounge, large and good quality room, bed, bathroom, furnishing, everything clean and tidy, simple but great and very fast breakfast in the lounge again. Will definitely be on my short list for future stays in Seoul.

after like 10 years working and living in Asia and taking up a job in Moscow, we decided to visit a country in the region which was worth a final visit.. it was beginning December and we needed too cool off before going to moscow.. so Seoul with probably some snow was the right place.. in a cold climate we...

This is probably one of the most high-end hotels I ever stayed in. Large and spotless rooms with amazing views (especially from floors 15 and higher). The pool area is amazing, just like the fitness and sauna, which is more of a spa with different temperature baths.There is a metro station, Donguk University, on the Orange Line nr 3, is... More

Believe it or not, in my experience, this hotel offers the best quality food in Korea. From the moment I stepped out of my car to check in and get into my room, service was impressively seamless and attentive. Breakfast is simply amazing but quite expensive. Outdoor swimming pool was beautiful and gym was managed professionally clean and tidy. One... More

Great hotel -nice quiet location (albeit not very central), Moulton Brown in the rooms, fabulous service from staff that are attentive without being overly servile (which I hate). You need a firm hand on your wallet though - drinks and food are VERY pricey. We loved the pool area - we were lucky enough to stay when they had some... More

the Shilla has to be seen. The hotel and property are second to none. I have stayed here several times and this past october I came back to newly remodeled rooms. Everything was perfect. That's what you expect from the Shilla. The staff are completely professional. Breakfast in the morning is an experience. Do not pass up the buffet. there... More

It is definitely one of my best experiences ever. The facility is exceptionally great and friendly. Room is of reasonable size, all amenities are available. Very comfortable and good sleep quality. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The breakfast needs to have more variety to cater to all tastes, however, it has the basics. The staff are friendly, very polite and... More

I absolutely loved my stay here. The room size was good. Hotel is located in a fairly quiet area but with many restaurants nearby. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was spotlessly clean everywhere. All in all if I were to Seoul again this would be my first choice.
