We stayed in a "suite room" which is absolutely huge by any hotel standard with a separate living room/kitchen away from the bedroom. It's really a fully loaded (two tvs, frig, washer-dryer, convection/microwave oven, dishwasher, lots of closets and drawers, automatic adjustable bed) hi-tech condo with hotel accommodations. Everything looked new and clean. It's was also super convenient since the subway/metro is on the same block downstairs. Even though the hotel was sold out, it was very serene (we seldomly had to share the elevator with anyone else). We visit Seoul frequently and prior to staying at the Classic 500, we've stayed at the Intercontinental Seoul COEX and JW Marriott. The Classic 500 make these other two feel like 3rd rate hotels. On top of all this, the rates are lower than the other two mentioned hotels...taxes/fees are lower too (10% @ Classic 500 vs 21% @ JW Marriott). Now that I found this gem, I will not stay anywhere else in Seoul.
PS - I' not rating "room service" since we ate out almost daily or cooked up something for ourselves. I'm actually not sure if room service was available or not. If room service is important to you, you should double check it's availability before booking. Also, I didn't try the SPA so I can't rate that either.....
