This was the first time I had visited Seoul. My husband and I came for a friend's wedding. I did not know what to expect, but the wedding was at the Westin and so I chose to stay here. First of all, you don't need to take an expensive taxi trip from the airport. The major hotels are serviced by... More

This is a very large hotel with all the amenities you'd expect. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. Really appreciated that. The rooms are nice and have lots of nice amenities, but they are outdated. Food quality is good and expensive as you'd expect for Seoul, but not outrageous. Taxi service to/from airport is nice as well but also... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel, it is right at the city's center. The staff is fantastic and the breakfast was delicious. It is within walking distance of many of the attractions in Seoul. I loved this location, although it didn't have the views the Conrad could provide.

The Westin Chosun is probably the perfectly located hotel for a tourist in Seoul. It is steps away from all the stuff in Myeongdong, and within 10-15 minute walking distance to palaces, Insadong etc. Seoul is a massive city so there are places north of the river you still need a cab or subway ride to get to.

This is an older but very well maintained hotel with prime location. This property is located in between the financial center and the shopping district of Seoul. It is right beside the high end Lotte Department store and hotel (check out their food market in the basement). Across the street from the back entrance are numerous (rather overwhelming) options for... More

The hotel is expensive and showy, but fails to deliver the 5* luxuries and comfort promised. The lobby and lower lobby floors boast refurbished eateries and high end dining options (high end for prices anyway - out of any proportion even for London or Tokyo).
