The service level of hotel is awesome. One of the concierge spent a good 40 minutes helping us book transportation to a ski resort. The rest of their staff was wonderful too.. Always ready to help out. One of them ran after the shuttle bus to help us catch it. Big shout out to Tag for helping us so much... More

We were only here for one night, but the service was great and the rooms were well done. We had two adjoining rooms and had plenty of space. The area is very nice. There are several nice places to eat either in the hotel or on wlkerhill. All are a quick walk or a hotel courtesy car away.

We stayed just a night since we wanted to try out W but knowing the location is far from everything.. Beautiful corner room. Weird bathroom though.. A curtain closes off the bathroom from the bedroom. However, there's a foot-long gap to the curtain so if you are undressing outside the shower and your friend happens to be passing by that... More

We stayed for three nights at the W Seoul Walkerhill and we're thrilled with our experience. The rooms are very well appointed, clean and comfortable. We were on a high floor with views over the city and the beautiful River. Red Colorado in the room was omnipresent, very stylish, with a round bed, a big bathroom with a round tub... More

My husband and I stayed from Jan 1-3 for our first anniversary. We got there around 4pm and had to wait 30 mins for our room but we were given a free coffee at the bar and they brought our bags up for us so we didn't have to keep them at the bar with us. The receptionist made a... More

This was not my first visit back to W Seoul, arrived late at night with my colleagues and was greeted with the familiar warm welcome and genuinely delighted to be surprised that I was a remembered visiting guest. Many guests (even returning ones to the same establishment of their preference) generally do not write more than one review. I feel... More

Stayed one vacation week at this hotel using SPG points. Was upgraded to a wonderful corner room. Ok round bed was a little awkward but the view was fantastic! The staff went out of their way to make you feel right at home. One even ran three blocks chasing a cab down to retrieve a hat I had left inside!!... More

The W at Walkerhill has always been good to me. One of the better W's in AP. A bit older but still swanky - and a good location just out of the city to get away after a day of meetings. Cool bar, serene view and good food. Service is impeccable.

This hotel has very stylish and trendy lobby with egg shaped chairs, very modern. All hotel staffs were courteous and helpful, I enjoyed the stay but location is not that convenient even though hotel provide the bus ride to metro. The hotel itself is highly recommended but the location is something to be desired.

Seoul is known to be fashion and tech forward. Don't worry about that here. Pop in a VHS and sit in the retro (non-ironic) 90's plastic bench and enjoy your expensive retro flashback. The property is distant unless the casino is your intent. They charge extra for everything. Two of you checking in? Better be retro computing because you'll only... More
