Grand Hilton Seoul is approximately 45 minutes from the airport. I took the airport shuttle from Incheon Airport and it was cheap and convenient. The bus stops across the road in front of the hotel. As the hotel is on a small hill, a hotel minivan waits at the bus-stop to ferry guests arriving from the airport up the hill to the hotel reception. That was a plus point.
Check-in was a breeze. The hotel lobby is beautiful and the conference/meeting rooms are in a separate building that is linked via the upper level.
I wished that the rooms were better. The bed was too soft and springy; the pillows were not firm. Toiletries that were usually present in the other Hilton Hotels were sorely missed. Signs of wear and tear were noticeable on the furniture and bathroom.
I was on the executive floor so I had breakfast in the executive lounge every morning. A very limited variety of food and the sitting area was small too. Evening cocktails were really average with limited choices.
The hotel is a distance from town but there is a free shuttle service on the hour that drops guests at various location. The final destination is Itaewon.
On the whole, the experience here was acceptable. I would try other hotels if I come to Seoul again.
