JW Marriotts are the top of the Marriott range but I’ve generally found the global JW experience to be very inconsistent. The JW Marriott Seoul (176 Sinbanpo-ro) has some great staff but the building is dated and just not up to the standard that meets my expectation. The bed was comfortable but no match for the luxury of its main...

I hope this review will reach the eyes of the Bell/Door hotelier in this wonderful hotel called David. Honestly speaking, I was not a guest in the hotel but as I had difficulty in finding a taxi, I walked all the way to this well-known hotel hoping that there would be some taxis in the entrance. Unfortunately it was a...

Stayed here for 3 nights in early November. Located at Gangnam, didn't have a chance to explore the area. There's a convenience store (family mart) & Starbucks near the hotel. Room is very spacious and comfortable. Bathroom is very spacious with nice toiletries. Bed was comfortable but pillows are too soft for my liking. Breakfast spread was great with both...

Marriot hotels guarantee a qualitative and glamorous status. Rooms beautiful, makes you feel special. Excellent breakfast for all tastes, amazing buffet for lunch. Of course extremelly expensive. Personnel should be more flexible and willing to assist. They are to have under mind a regulations book and can't cope without it.

I have lived almost every single 5 star hotels in Seoul, and I can clearly say that it is the worst hotel among the other hotels.
