I was a little bit afraid about the location after reading some comments: W Walkerhill hotel is not in the center of Seoul, but honestly it's not such a problem as there is a shuttle bus (common with the nearby Sheraton hotel) that brings you to metro stations every 10 minutes. And the metro in Seoul is very efficient, convenient,... More

I was there for 3 nights for a business trip, the room, amenities, restaurants were great. I shared the room with a colleague and our room overlooked the river. I traveled there in Oct 2012. And there was a dutyfree shopping at the nextdoor hotel! Those it was very happening at the lobby, but in the room it was truly... More

The W Walker Hill is a beautiful happening with motion detected art on each floor and in the lobby, the whole hotel a study in red , from the neon spiked front to the inside lounge to the beautiful room decor. I even brought home a fire engine red robe, with slippers to match, all with the W logo. I... More

It's a nice fancy hotel, but I cannot agree on their value-for-money promise. I read below that the management claims they are equal to other 5-stars, but for me that's a very incorrect answer. The price-level is ok, but the quality they offer for that money is ridiculous. The drinks at the bar, the food at the brunch place.....I have... More

Generally a terrific hotel. Nothing to complain about on the room condition, service, amenity (except that they don't provide a toothbrush!), etc. We stayed at a basic Wonderful room facing the mountain on high(10+) floor, and it was pretty cool. Room was clean and well-maintained although the tone looked a bit old to be "trendy" as W seeks. (Rooms with... More

I don't think this level of quality justifies the pricing. I am not used to paying 25 USD for a glass of bad low quality white-wine or 100 USD for a weekend breakfast, just because I am sitting on a fancy sofa-chair. I am a frequent international traveller, but this is out of ordinary and not acceptable. If you ask... More

I was thrilled to say here on a solo trip to Seoul. While it's a little outside the city it just looked so trendy and fun I chose it anyway. It was was simple enough to take the subway/taxi to get into central Seoul. Since I planned to be out all day and evening in the city I really didn't... More

Don't do it. I was so excited to stay here. The pictures are beautiful, the views look spectacular...but it is all an elaborate facade. I left with a very bad taste in my mouth.
