Excellent Hotel, excellent Service. Is linked to the department of Lotte as well as with the amusement park. Good running track just next door with 2.5km around 2 lakes. Nice to do at sunrise.

Why does Tripadvisor insists to put mmore that 200 letter in? blablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablablabla

Check-in: Signed the 300.000 Krw credit card authorisation (equivalent of 208 € or 282 US$). Just after signing it the kind receptionist told us that it doesn't include the taxes. When you ask for the price you expect to be given a total price which includes the taxes, but I guess that's not the case here. We ended up paying 60.000 more in taxes (which is more then 40 €).
A concierge took us to our room and told us, what sounded like a routine speech, that the shampoos are complimentary. He also told us that we have two bottles of water for free. Now, isn't that generous.
Note for the management: When in 5 star hotel, the guest will expect the conditioner to be included in the price he's paying.

The breakfast: The concierge was a warning for what was to come the following morning when we discovered that, although the shampoos and the use of the towels and the sheets was complimentary, the breakfast was not. They charge it another 30 € per person.
Now, maybe I was wrong, but I was expecting the breakfast to be included in the price of the 250 € per night room. The receptionist on the check-in forgot to mention it was not. And I didn't ask, just like I didn't ask for the shampoos. Note for the management if you are reading this: Manage expectations!

The room: Pretty small in comparison with the average 5 star or even the 4 star hotels in Europe.

All in all, to rephrase something I recently read, I'm gonna pay more for a certain brand because it guaranties me a certain quality. I'm not gonna pay more for a butter because it's been refrigerated.

The opening says it all. We stayed 3 nights in early September traveling with Daedong. Subway is right outside the lobby. Easy travel in and out of the city, as long as you know where you are going or have a guide. Amusement park on site so kid friendly. The food is wonderful and they offer plenty of American choices. Breakfast is wonderful. The inside is spotless and has many shops...higher end, but nice to view. In the basement levels of the hotel is a fabulous food/grocery store. You have to walk through to see what I mean. They have fresh pastries, different kinds of sweets and munchies made on site. Well displayed and I even had a Krispy Kreme donut here. The staff at all businesses visited were friendly and tried their best to speak English. They wanted to accommodate the americans. The rooms were clean, beds extremely comfortable and easy access from one of the many elevators. All in all if you go to Seoul, or anywhere in South Korea, look for the name Lotte...it is a very common name for business. This location is great!

We had a pleasant stay at the Lotte Hotel World. My parent live in jansil so I chose this hotel to stay with my family. The overall hotel lobby has been kept in v.good condition and located at Jamsil MTR it is 1 minute walk the main shopping and food areas. Our room was a little tired but the bed was fantastic. Staff service was excellent and nothing was too much.
The breakfast in the hotel will cost you about $28 per person. You could not eat that much food! Go to the bakery located 1st floor in this hotel. I had a baked bred with coffee for $10.
Do not make an international telephone call from your room. You will be charged an extraordinarily high price.

Looking from outside of the building it looks wonderful. Then you enter and a man helped me with my bags, you notice how clean and fresh the building looks with open space. The reception lady spoke wonderful english and she was quick in checking me in. I had asked for a smoking room, I was a bit worried as I know thease rooms normaly look a bit grotty due to the smoke but the room was wonderful. The minute you wake into the room you could not smell smoke but an airfreshner, which was lovely. The bathroom was brill from the black sink to the tub. Everything was wonderfully clean and in the right place. the hairdryer was a little hard to find but it was in a lovely bag in one of the draws. I loved how the draws were laid out so tidy and easy to find the bottle opener and other bits you may need while staying in the hotel. I had been to a concert the night of my stay and I had to show my friends the lobby of the hotel as the lights at night made it look magical. In all I loved my stay with the hotel and will do so in the future.

Room Tip: The view was not nice but I could see the lake beside.

I live in chicago, United state but actually I am Korean. I've just been Korea last month with my lovely wife in honeymoon. This site helped me to choose a great hotel in Gangnam, Seoul.
The hotel is in a very nice area, Gangnam, very close to great malls and below the hotel is a huge underground mall with lots of facilities and shops, etc. The hotel itself has many dining options. The rooms are nice size, very clean and the general service is good. The decor and design of the hotel is also very nice. One disadvantage is that it is quite far from downtown Seoul and to get to all the different tourist attractions, you would have to cross the river to the other side of Seoul. This can be a hassle but we found the travel ok except during peak hours. The concierge service can be better, the staff won't very enthusiastic about helping out with ideas, etc. It was efficient but not out of the way. Great stay, enjoyed it much and a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: the lobby is very much crowded.
