The hotel's shuttle service (both from/to airport & shopping area) are good. Really helpful. But for the 5* hotel, the facilities is so standard. Room space quite spacious, swimming pool not to good, hotel's crew are helpful.

This is a beautiful international hotel. The rooms have built in 110 outlets so no converter is needed. The breakfast buffet is amazing. The croissants are flaky and delicious. The staff is kind and courteous. This location is walking distance to Seoul tower.

There you can find Myeongdong which is a famous shopping and dinning area. If you wish for an exercise, it is about 20 minute walk... More
