Stumbled upon a free concert during summer. Although located in the middle of 3 busy main roads, it's quite nice sitting in front of the stage listening e.g. to a big band concert. Conveniently they even have a free picnic blanket service for a small security deposit.

It took me a pretty long time to find the perfect hotel; luxury, great location and service are very important to me. Guess what, found it! The hotel is extremely convenient located opposite the City Hall. An Underground station is next to the entry (one stop from Seoul station where you arrive from the airports) and next to Deoksugung palace... More

I recently stayed at The Plaza and am very impressed with their level of customer service, from the moment I checked in. While there I had a situation in which I lost my iPhone and needed to get emergency passport, which required me to extend my stay. The team in the business lounge on the 18th floor as well as...

This 5 start hotel in Seoul has many plus points, great location, right next the City Hall station, walking distance from Myeongdong shopping area, a small traditional palace just outside and lots of restaurants / convenience stores and coffee shops near by. Also the gym and breakfast are amazing. The draw backs are it is expensive compared to other hotels... More

This could have been a five star review but for the executive lounge of which more in a minute. The hotel itself is very stylish and well located. Rooms are small but well appointed. Bathroom again small but modern with a cool toilet which has Japanese style buttons and functions. Room service was fast and tasty. Service by staff was... More

Pros: - location is perfect, facing the city hall, easily connected to multiple metro lines. 20mn walk to the Palace, and 5mn walk to Myeong Dong pedestrian areas full of shops and eateries. Cons: - this hotel is a factory. Don't expect personalized service or particularly friendly staff neither at front desk or restaurants. - bar is gloomy, ground floor,... More

Great hotel, superb rooms at a very convenient location on 2 subway lines. Also shuttle bus to some main destinations. Downsides: a standard tea in the lobby bar comes at 13 USD. Seriously? Even for a 5 star hotel that is not acceptable. Also the breakfast isn't really worth the money.

Best vacation ever! :) Great view from the gym. Comfy bed. Good wifi. Nice friendly staff! Fresh smell in the elevators and lobby. Nice products in bathroom. Quiet awesome premiere suite. The swimmingpool area on its way to get shabby but still ok. Too bad small children are allowed in the swimming pool. And the guests are wearing long shorts... More

Very nice hotel centrally located with a metro line next door to the property. The staff was very nice and there were no issues with check in/out process. The city hall is across the street, which is nice if there is an event, but can also be bad if there is a demonstration. Many things within walking distance. The room... More
