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

The staff are extremely professional and helpful. The rooms and decor are modern, fancy, and generally nice, though certain things are a bit chintzy. For example the fixtures for the sink, shower and bath are coated in a shiny material that looks like it is metal. Except it is wearing off in places, so you can tell that the handles... More

I have stayed in Seoul before on a few occasions and was looking for a smarter hotel. I was surprised how good the rates are for this place. The rooms was great - it felt spotlessly clean and modern. It is quite high-tech with everything controlled by an ipad, but it all worked. The bathroom was also very clean and... More

We stayed on the club lounge floor and loved the expertise of concierge staff and bonus of dedicated lounge. Views of city hall from north-facing rooms are great. One club floor room we saw was an awful design--pink walls and elaborate lamps as if Barbie's decorator decided to redo a Vegas casino. The suites were more grown-up, understated and refined....

I had stayed in this hotel during the 1st week of Dec, 2014. Temperature sudenly dropped to minus 10 Degree Celcius, for which i was not prepared. The hotel had excellent heating facility which saved me from the surprise. Staff are the real asset for this hotel. When I was going out in my suits, they suggested to put a... More

This is a very comforatble place to stay. I stayed here for two days and nights, having a short conference within the hotel premises. Staff is very friendly and helpful from the moment you enter: taking your luggage, pointing you to the elevators and indicating the location of the buttons on first arrival, and so forth. The rooms are luxurious,... More
