Only reason to stay here is the proximity to my office. I do like the breakfast selection, and the room and service aren't bad, but there's nothing exciting in the immediate vicinity. (There is a great Korean bbq place around the back though)

I have to admit that I was a bit worried when I looked this place up online.... Images showed dated furniture and kitschy at best decor. But when I was scheduled here for work I had a pleasant surprise. Yes the lobby is old fashioned in style with dark wood and marble clubby feel. Fairly classy other than the golden... More

I was very happy to once again stay at the Imperial Palace Seoul. Years ago it was the Amiga Hotel. It is in an older area of Gangnam but very accessible to Tehran- ro and Samsung Dong where the action is in the evenings by a short taxi ride. Taxis are always waiting on the street. Nice outside Bar beside... More

The elaborate guestrooms are outfitted in antique furnishings. Overall, it’s like royalty staying here. Definitely would like to come back here in Gangnam this time with my wife. Seoul... More
