Great views of Walker Hill area and awesome bar in lobby. The brunch on Sunday is one of the best. Also, great spa, gym and medical staff including some of the best concierge. Ensure to book spa in advance and leverage star points for hotel stays Ensure to include a weekend stay if possible.

I just can't warm to the uber contemporary design. It's as if they've thrown considerations for ergonomics out the window. I liked the view though. It's pricey generally and because it's so far way from downtown you feel like you are stuck on an island with so little to do on the premises. This place seems to be designed for... More

Stayed in a corner room where I can see both river and mountain - what a nice view! The room is very spacious and all amenity in bathroom is also great - products of Bliss. Pre-ordered champagne and chocolate were well prepared in the room. Breakfast needs to be improved a bit more to reach its competitor's level such as... More

The hotel's design is quite contemporary, not the typical hotel room layout, with its open concept. Upon entering the hotel, you will already notice it's contemporary design with the bar greeting you near the reception. The elevator is dark colored rings hanging from the ceiling. The contemporary design is refreshing, but there are a few disappointing things about the hotel.... More

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 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
