I stayed at executive suite room and the view was so good. The hotel is in the heart of Seoul and it's so close to everywhere. The breakfast buffet wasn't bad but not very impressive. It was very crowded and noisy and hard to find seat if you go there after 8. The hotel is not a resort so it's... More

Stayed 4 nights in a deluxe room with access to the Club lounge on the 18th floor and thoroughly enjoyed it - definitely worth the extra. Staff throughout the hotel are very welcoming and attentive, our room had a lovely view over City Hall, and the fitness suite is the best of any hotel I ever stayed in. Yes, the... More

The service at this hotel cannot be better. Staff are well trained, informed and attentive. Rooms are small ( standard room), but comfortable and with all the amenities. Several good restaurants in the hotel, but they are substantially more expensive than what is available in the immediate neighborhood. The terrace bar and restaurant between the main hotel and the annex,... More

Dominating the City Hall plaza in the financial heart of Seoul is The Plaza. While it appears to look slightly dated outside, inside is another story. The staff are all wonderfully friendly and courteous. The check-in was excellent and the tour of my suite facilities was brisk yet knowledgeable. My suite, overlooking two quiet corners of the city on the... More

It is a very tiny room. But delivers on style and impressive amenities. I stayed here with a friend during Chuseok. We were looking to be more centrally located and near shopping and fun for the holiday. We got a great deal on a Twin room looking out over the city. We really enjoyed all the techy features of the... More

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in: perfect service from all staff, excellent amenities and facilities (check the fitness club), very fine and high variety breakfast. The rooms are spacious and very modern with large LCD TV. The Plaza is located in the center of Seoul - within walking distance from all major attraction: Namdaemun market, Insa-dong street,...

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!!!
