This is a great location and a good hotel. However I found it abit expensive and lessor value than the Shilla Hoetl where I normally stay. Where they fall down is on teh renovated rooms (the whole hotel was renovated in 2010) The bathroom still has a tired old bathtub with a low depth meaning you cannot have a proper...

I really liked almost everything about this hotel - the rooms were modern, spacious and clean. The bathroom was small, but similarly modern and with some really nice amenities. The location is also very good, close to the shopping area and food. And of course the service was good, and staff all spoke English very well. The only downside was...

The hotel is located just behind Lotte Department Store and near a subway station, so it's very convenient. There is even a 24hour convenient just across the road. The room is clean but the furnishings are very dated. The toilet is very small and the service is ok.

The room was ok, service quite good. The prices in the hotel restaurants are pretty high compared to the US. The swimming pool is a bit small but the actual problem is that out of 3 lanes, one was blocked completely because of swimming lessons! I didn't expect this in a 5 star hotel and as the instructor was very...

The service at the Westin Chosun was outstanding. Unfortunately on my last trip I needed medical attention during my stay and I cannot say enough about how helpful they were. They arranged for a in-room doctor and even sent a staff member with me to translate when I needed to visit the hospital. When I left, the gentleman from the...

Nice hotel, there's no denying that, but the question is whether it's worth the money. And for me, it's not. It started when I phoned to enquire about prices and they told me it was KRW270k "plus 20". Now this is my own fault for not clarifying, but I thought that meant another 20k... In fact it's another 20% And...

My first time to this hotel. Nice and cozy. Service is excellent and staffs can all speak English. The gym is fabulous and there is also an indoor heated pool. You can take the bus direct from ICN airport, which is more convenient then taking the train. However, the journey is about 1hour and cost KWR16000. Myeongdong shopping street is...

It is a very nice and great hotel that I most enjoyed during my holiday in Seoul. Wish to come back and stay there again. Swimming pool was gorgeous. Bakery downstairs was so delicious. Location is very strategic. The mall, convenient stores, cafe and the tourism spot are in walking distance.

I am a big fan of Westins. This one (at $180 per night) was no better or worse. PROS - central location is good for tourists: 5 min walk to subway which can take you throughout Seoul (e.g. Itaewon, open food market) and to several surrounding regions. Very close to Lotte food court which is worth seeing. - Outstanding service....

Love it. I was really impressed with attitude from all the staff. Every single staff I had conversation with was super-friendly. Mr. Yun at the front walked me through the property and gave me a complete introduction. One of the staff brought a humidifier in 10 mins after I asked for it on the phone. The room was nice as...
