“Clean, Comfortable and Modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Stayed for 5 days in seoul palace, is quite impressive, although, using a very dense schedule trip. The rooms are very clean, and modern design. Only a few tiles in the bathroom there is a crack. And overall everything is ok

The Seoul Palace Hotel is a modern, well-equipped hotel in a convenient part of Seoul. The immediate neighborhood has some nice local restaurants and shops and there's a great city park just up the hill that connects to miles of walking trails. The facility itself is very clean and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The executive floors have some nice additional amenities, like breakfast, afternoon snacks, a meeting room, etc. but they are overly strict about the RULES and hours of operation. The room was adequate, with a decent desk and comfortable bed. The bathroom had all you could hope for and was very clean. One needs a GPS or guide dog to find the gym, but once you there, it is fairly well equipped with treadmills, weights and a few other machines. The room was a little on the expensive side, but otherwise it was a very nice place to stay

Modern,comfortable hotel. Rooms are large with modern design, good size bathroom. My room was overlooking the highway but very quiet at night. Easy access to public transport.Airport bus will stop infront of the hotel lobby.

Room Tip: High floors, away from the highway.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour, and it was the best of the whole bunch. With 3 people, the room was certainly too small with an extra rollaway bed in the room but would have been OK for two. The room, though, was clean and the bath was adequate.

We did not have a chance to explore the area, as we got in fairly late in the evening and had to be out early the next morning. We did not use the restaurant for breakfast, which was not included anyway. But we did have a good night's rest here.

For the price of this hotel, there should be some amenities included. Basic things like breakfast and free wifi. However, not here. You are even charged for the in-room internet connection. I stayed at a cheap layover hotel in Incheon at 1/3 of the price that provided breakfast and free internet. Staying at the Seoul Palace was a truly disappointing experience. I would advise anyone thinking of staying here to steer clear.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I stayed in the club level and loved this hotel. The room was small, but so thoughtfully put together. Everything that a business traveler (especially) could need seemed to be right at hand--a desk with ample plugs, wifi, decent lighting, a comfortable chair and footstool, an iPod dock for music, kettle for tea or coffee, etc. The bathroom was equally well laid out with nice amenities. The bed was comfortable and the curtains blocked all the light. The best part though was the food in the lounge, which while not extensive, was very tasty. The smoked salmon was some of the best I've ever eaten. Service was excellent. The location of the hotel was also good, as it was about a block to a major subway station (express bus terminal) and a mall.
