“Good hotel good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed my stay here but I struggled to get the temperature right in the room. The breakfast is fantastic, among the best.
The room was good and don't you just love the heated toilet seats !
Location was good for business and shopping.
Good barbecue restaurant right next door.
There is an iPhone in the room to help stay connected. Take it with you to avoid the problem of your phone and blackberry not working.

i recommend this hotel especially during winter...very close to Lotte Department Store, Myeondong and underground shopping. There is a Starbucks right outside the hotel . It is very convenient because the airport limousine stops here every 15 minutes.

The hotel is located fantastically. You can walk to Lotte Department store, the connection to the Airports is excellent and you are very fast in Myeondong to go for a shopping tour.
We stayed 2 nights to explore Seoul center and for this purpose the hotel was ideal.
We had a club room, so we could access the club lounge at the top floor and enjoy drinking and eating almost all day long.
The room was clean and nice and the staff always friendly.

Room Tip: Club Rooms offer a lot of additional service

What can I say.............right in the heart of the shopping district of Myeongdong. 5 minutes by taxi to Seoul Station and walking distance to Lotte Departmental Store and Namdaemun Market. True to a Westin, rooms are very well appointed and service is excellent. Breakfast was fantastic and had dinner at the Chinese restaurant which was tasty and authentic.

Will stay again.

This was my first visit to this hotel, and my impression was very favourable. The hotel is very well situated for exploring the centre of Seoul; the service is first-rate, and the rooms quiet. I particularly liked the fact that the room had windows which opened sufficiently so that I could cool it to the (cold) temperature in which I like to sleep, rather than having to try to sleep in a room at a temperature chosen by the management. I would certainly come here again, and would strongly recommend the hotel to someone (like myself) who had not been to Korea before. I was particularly impressed by the fact that one of the concierge staff was able to identify on the internet (from my somewhat vague description) an item of Korean Hangwa (a traditional sweetmeat), but also discover where I could purchase them. The breakfasts and dinners at the lower ground floor buffet restaurant had a particularly wide choice of food.

Excellent hotel. Booking a 5 star hotel comes with sky-high expectations. Of course, the basics like a clean room will be fine. But small things can make or break your association with a hotel. For example in Seoul, the Park Hyatt is excellent, whereas the Grand Hyatt is terrible (despite huge reputation).

The Westin Chosun just gets everything right. The lobby is nice, the hotel feels like being built just yesterday, breakfast is nice and not too busy, and most of all: the location! Right in the city center, Lotte department store, and all other shops around the corner. Rooms are not too big, but fitted with all things you need (except for a walk in shower, standing in the bath is not so great). The nespresso machine in the room is excellent.

I was staying here for 60% of the room rate of one of the Hyatts, but would definitely stay here again even at the same price!

General 5 star property with excellent services/good restaurants to boot. Located in Central/Jung-Su District it's a close cab ride to many multinationals and shopping/metro. Bus from ICN to hotel takes about 1hr. Hotel is an older/low rise property that has been well maintained. Good wi-fi. Rooms are fair sized and while not super modern, comfortable with the added benefit of Nespresso/music station. Gym is very good and there is also a spa/pool.

If you can get a good rate, it's a fail safe choice. Location is a big selling point. More business hotel than vacation spot though fits the bill for both.

Room Tip: Very quiet hotel. My room was near elevator and there was no noise.
