“Leisure days in Seoul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Excellent hotel with a nice and good connection to the airport. If you there, do not miss the chance to visit their fitness club. Very good facility with swimming pool and golf. Try to go to sauna. It is an amazing place with carpets and (sic!) TV in the sauna room. You do not need to have sport clothe over there in the club - all you can loan.
Dinner time you can can go to the buffet at the first flour. Good and broad choice of all kind food: sea food, chinese, korean and european. Lobsters, crabs and suchimi are beautifull and tasty. Do not miss a chance to eat as much as possible :-)
More over there are possible to organize conference and seminars. The stuff of the hotel is very helpfull and serviceminded.
At the same building there is a big shopping mole. Enjoy it!

Room Tip: There is a Club lounge at the hotel. You can ask about it. Rooms are "connected" to the lo...

Stayed at the Lotte, Seoul at the end of March for the first time in quite a few years. It remains a not cheap by any means, but a rather nice, well located hotel

First off will say I arrived during the last day of the big global nuclear summit at a very busy time - 6pm. It was chaotic, but I was spotted from getting of the airport bus and guided through the chaos from security to check in to my room. Excellent!

The rooms have been completely redone from what I remember and where very nice, if a wee bit over the top, although I did like the chaise lounge at the end of the bed!

The gym is better than previously although still has some odd equipment by most countries standards. At least the faux Greek statues have gone!

Overall a really good stay if quite expensive, but then again Seoul has never been cheap.

I stay here when I travel to Seoul, which is once or twice a year. Club is the best and only choice. 5 star all the way. Planning to return in the next few weeks and my only choice. Centrally located and easy access to all you need. Extremely safe city. Great staff.

I don't see the hype.. It is near the department store, but there are better hotels in myeongdong nearer to the airport bus.. The hotel has its own airport bus, but is more expensive than the 6015 airport bus..

Plus no free wifi provided! Even have to pay for this

I've stayed at Lotte Hotel, Seoul quite a few times and they never fail to please. Service is absolutely impeccable. Seriously some of the best service anywhere in the world. The hotel is centrally located in Seoul within the Myoung-dong area, and allows for easy access to the entire city. The subway station right in the basement of the hotel department store is particularly nice for getting around while trying to avoid the traffic. Rooms are well furnished and feature varying designs and themes depending on where you stay within the hotel. The standard rooms are a bit small, but adequate for most business travelers. The suites are very nice and roomy.

The hotel itself offers a vast array of dining options from casual food court (in the basement) to upscale french cuisine at Pierre Gagnaire. Pierre Gagnaire is a very elegant restaurant with top notch chefs in the back. The food is mainly french with some Japanese flavor profiles expertly tossed in. This generally pleases the many Japanese tourists who visit Lotte for a quick holiday. Being an American, I was thrown for a loop initially, but then learned to appreciate their unique style. I must say that the chefs in Pierre Gagnaire are truly masters at what they do. The buffet is also not to be missed. Yes, its a bit pricey for a buffet, but it is one of the best in Seoul. The lobby cafe is a great place to have casual meetings or if you just want to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Conference/event halls are large, well decorated, and well staffed. Weddings in the hotel are very popular, and Lotte is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious venues in Seoul.

This is a great hotel for business travelers and vacationers alike. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

I travel to Seoul a couple of times a year for work and try to stay at the Lotte when I go. The hotel is a great location and the service is absolutely impeccable. I usually stay in the New Wing and the rooms are a great size and last time was upgraded for a reason I don't know. There was a separate sitting room which was great because I was spending the day working from the hotel. Room service was impeccable.

I also used the business centre, which was very small but had all the services needed to conduct a meeting.

Will definitely be staying again.
