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 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
