This was our second stay for a short trip. Nothing has changed much since our first visit 3 years ago. The service and quality remained slightly above Starwood Westin standards. Location was superb as we were able to walk to the Myeongdong area or the subway within 5 minutes. The room was clean and well kept. The only complaint we... More

I just stayed 2 nights here and it's an exceptional hotel with excellent service. Buffett breakfast was great with a huge choice of food. The good thing is your are walking distance to most attractions and shopping. And staff were very helpful to plan and book tours. Worth it.

It was the first time I had visited Korea in some years and the hotel had been refurnished since my last stay. The rooms are well appointed with a good selection of TV channels and on demand movies to keep the business traveller happy. Breakfast selection is also good with the hotel itself close to some excellent restaurants (though it... More

The suite was fantastic, everything super clean and where it should be. The water was amazingly hot and gave me the best shave ever. Staff were very helpful and easy to reach. I felt like I had my own safe home there.

On a recent business trip, I enjoyed the comfort of the Westin Chosun. It is a luxury hotel in the busy Myeong-dong shopping district Seoul close to competitors like the Lotte Hotel.

I have stayed here twice for work in recent weeks. Westin is generally a very solid choice and the Westin Chosun is no exception. The entrance is fairly grand, checkin (and checkout) swift. Bellboys are very helpful getting taxis and really like their fur trimmed outfits against the biting cold. Rooms are very comfortable with the standardised Westin bed. Have... More

I definitely will stay here again on my next visit to Seoul. The location is the best I should say about this hotel. Its in the heart of a popular shopping district of Seoul with walking distance to Lotte Plaza, Myeondong Street, Shinsagae Department Store and NamDaemun Market.
