I had a wonderful 4 night stay here in April 2015. The studio suite at his hotel is one of my favorites. Spacious with a large bathroom featuring a separate walk in shower, and a giant round red bathtub.... It's as impressive as the modern decor and big round bed. The fitness center at this hotel is one of the... More

The W Walkerhill is simply one of the best in Seoul. Perfect location on the hill and by the river. Close to the freeway. Good strategic location. Meeting and catering - top, top quality all around. Lunches (box or a la carte) - always with a flair and unique touch. Rooms - funky but not crazy. Had a suite (1467)... More

I have tried staying other hotels in Seoul.. But none like W Seoul. Servicing staffs there are very friendly and warm. There's always someone at door greeting and helping guests. In the evening when i am back, there's always some small little surprises on the table. Tried the Korean scrub at the Away Spa. It's simply relaxing and comfortable. Don't... More

Am a military service member moving to Seoul. After an entire day of traveling, we made it to the hotel. It was impressive in every way. From the unsolicited upgrade to a corner room with a river view to the staff squaring away our pets with treats and dinner. It was a great start to our time here in Seoul.... More

The hip twin to the neighboring Sheraton Walker Hill, the W-Hotel is clearly the hip younger sister, lots more fun, style and with pizazz to boot. We stayed for a 1 night staycation over the holiday, and what a great respite.
