Seoul is an absolutely massive city so pinning down where the middle is is rather hard to do, but The Plaza offers just about the best compromise of things to see and do, especially if like us you're only there for a couple of days. There's lots close by that you can walk to, and a good range of dining... More

The Plaza used to be a great hotel 5 years ago until someone decided to renovate it in a modern style and the managed to kill the hotel spirit Although I stayed in a club room the corridor is darker and intimidating!!! One you enter the room you get the feeling that you enter a phonograph movie stage Red leather... More

Modern and chic hotel in the center of Seoul with easy access via underground walkways to the subway and shopping/restaurant areas. Service was attentive and professional. Common areas and rooms were functional and well maintained. Breakfast was fantastic with a wide variety of western, Asian, and Korean choices, all well presented and constantly stocked. Only con was the small room,... More

Had a wonderful stay in this hotel. it starts with the Korean air shuttle that stops right near the hotel. staff is very attentive and helps you in anyway they can. The rooms are uniquely designed and not like regular hotels, the bed is right in the center of the room which seems nice but make it very crowded to... More

I was there for a business trip. They offer a really good service as event management and also a pleasant stay. The room is very clean and the hall is really nice. Very good location to visit the city.

The Plaza is a truly exceptional metropolitan hotel. It has been modernized with a very chic decor (both in the lobby and restaurants, as well as the rooms themselves), but what really stood out for me were the staff, particularly the very knowledgeable and helpful concierge staff.

Hotel in dire need of a refurb in order to keep charging current rates. Good location but hotel amenities (pool, gym etc) are across the road! You can get much better value for money in Seoul. Service is pleasant but nothing 5 star.

Very conveniently to explore the city as markets are near by, Lotte department store is in walking distance, the river walk is not far and the City Hall underground station is in front of the hotel. We liked the rooms design also it was a little small. Recommendation to everyone: Make sure your room does not face the City Hall... More

The bed is smacked in the middle of a modest sized room. This accentuated the view of City Hall but it was irritating to navigate around it on a busy business trip. The square in front of City Hall seems to be a destination for noisy protests and policemen in riot gear. I did appreciate the in-room latte and rain-forest... More

This modern hotel is well placed near City Hall and the subway station. The rooms have modules next to the bed that control many aspects of the room - curtains, lights, temperature. It is also a phone. The breakfast buffet is very comprehensive with both Western and Asian specialties including bulgogi. Fitness and the pool is in a different building... More
