This is a fantastic modern hotel in the heart of downtown Seoul. The service is very good and the rooms are large and clean. The breakfast buffet is almost too large with full western and Asian fares. There is direct access to the subway system and a block walk to Myung-dong shopping area which is full of retail and restaurants....

This is seriously the best place to put your money, Lotte, Plaza and other hotels in this area will offer similar pricing, but will not mount up to the quality you will receive at Chosun. Their in house restaurants are considered much higher than its competitors in the area and the hotel is not built to only maximize their room...

I travel extremely frequently, annually doing about 80 nights with SPG alone. So naturally, when I visit Seoul, I choose The Westin. ----- 1. Location in downtown is very close to the Myeongdong shopping district as well as the Lotte Department Store / Duty Free next door. However, the central location does have a downfall because I could not reach...

We stayed there at the end of November for my birthday. My husband when he made reservations did mention the special occasion and throughout our entire stay everyone on the staff wished me "Happy Birthday " I will say this qualifies as excellent customer service not to mention great memory. Room was well appointed and very comfortable and included all...

First off, the rooms are generous (business deluxe king). It's roomy enough for 2 and even had enough space for a full work desk and a small couch. However, the rooms are in dire need of a refurbishment and some works have been done (but not too well). Crusty white deposits on the shower head, paint chipping from the frames...

Pros: Good location if you're a tourist Good gym Front desk responds to 'issues' promptly in most cases. However some of those 'issues' should not have arisen in the first place.

I have always stayed at Westin Chosun Hotel during my business trip, given its close proximity to government buildings and its central location, even to touristy area like Myeongdong.
