The Executive Floor is a great escape & quiet respite from the Coffee Shop & Lobby restaurants - where one can enjoy & quiet breakfast or glasses of wine at night for winding down full-programmed days during our visit. the staff are courteous, helpful, & kind. Shuttle service from Incheon airport is convenient as it stops right on this hotel.... More

The hotel is undergoing renovation work, but to be fair this was explained and for me at least no inconvenience, all work conducted between 8am and 6pm. I guess if you're a tourist, this maybe more an issue. It's the 1st time I've stayed at this hotel and I must say the staff were happy and excellent, not always the... More

The hotel is in Gangnam area, near subway and directly acessible from Incheon airport by KAL bus. The service is fine and the room amenities are good (though the room is small. But I would advise avoiding it for now because it is currently under renovation. The windows are blocked by scaffolding. No gym or other facilities until end of... More

The hotel's USP was great service, minimalistic decor and quiet small rooms. The hotel seemed more like a business hotel and there is a airport limousine bus service that drops you on the doorstep but be careful the departure by the same bus service takes longer to Incheon. I was checked in on the higher executive floors and had a... More

Good quality and reasonably priced business hotel near Gangnam and very convenient to the Express Bus Station metro. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the first floor restaurant is quite good. Be careful if visiting the Chinese restaurant, though - it is fine dining and obscenely expensive. They've got about half a dozen English language TV channels including... More

this hotel is quite far from the city center. so you definitely miss the city test. But within five walking distance there is metro subway station. Buffet breakfast is better than lunch or dinner for Indian test lover. Good accommodation. wifi available every floor but you have to pay.

This was our first visit to Seoul and this hotel was booked by our company. The airport limousine bus comes directly in front of the hotel reception. As we had booking of executive floors we were directed to the other reception. The check in formalaties were completed in 10 mn and lifts were very polished and fast. As soon as... More

We checked in at Seoul Palace Hotel on a group tour, and we liked the location so much, very safe in an upscale area. They provided a very convenient group check in at the lobby. Room sizes are just enough, although corridors are quite dimly lighted. One thing that the hotel needs to improve is the bathroom, and shower area... More
