My mother and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Seongbuk Seoul Hotel from January 21-24, 2015 when we visited Seoul on a leisure vacation. As a Platinum IHG Rewards Club member, I booked our stay this time using IHG Rewards Club points. We booked a standard non-smoking room with two beds.

Stayed in this hotel because of a meeting. The hotel is decent and clean and staff are nice, but it's by no mean a hotel that I'd return to. The location is not central, the decor is classic and unimaginative. Overall an average hotel, but staff are very helpful and nice.

Stayed here last week on points. Was received warmly by the Front Office Manager who very efficiently sorted out bedding configurations for my 3 kids. The hotel shuttle was a great value add service. Would highly recommend this property for families with kids.

Within 10 mins walking distance of the university but easily could have caught a taxi. The staff was so helpful: extra coffee for our room, kept our luggage before check in time, and they greeted us at the door when we returned to the hotel.

I stayed in this hotel for four days for business (a university colloquium and a conference). It was a very pleasant stay. The room was quiet and comfortable.The buffet breakfast was excellent. However, it is outside of the tourist attractions so if you are in Seoul for leisure this may not be the best hotel to stay. It compensates this... More

Every member of staff spoke excellent english which really helped when giving advice on how to visit the places I had planned.
