I've stayed at many W hotels throughout the world and I was looking forward to checking this one out. The entrance, lobby, and elevators were very cool. Our room (River View) was ok, the white and red decor were interesting, but not really my taste. The service at this hotel was excellent. Yes, they are a bit out of the... More

It was an amazing hotel. Great for business and having a rest in between travels/meetings. It is located a bit far from the airport but in a nice location with river views. Service was amazing, hotel is beautiful and very very trendy. I definitely recommend staying there more than one night and enjoy that area of Seoul.

I have been staying at the W in Doha several times so I am familiar with the futuristic image the brand attempts to project and I quite like it. However, it comes with a significant premium when it comes to paying the bill. English knowledge beyond front line staff could improve as well.

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
