Hotel is what you would expect of W. lobby and rooms are elegant and modern. Stayed here for 2 nights. Location is not ideal, as it is bits out of the way from all the tourist attractions. Concierge desk was very helpful in arranging the tours for us. Overall great property and will recommend and stay next time when I...

I stayed at the W Walkerhill in October during my first trip back to Korea in eight years. Eight years ago, I only stopped by the W bar and it was so cool - the scene, the people, and the service. It was THE it spot then. I was looking forward to finally staying there and found my visit to...

Have to visit W Seoul one of my favourite hotels, at least once every few years (I probably have stayed there over 30nights in the past 7 years). Totally stylish, chic, love the breakfast, the views and the wonderfully styled room. The service is super amazing, upon my departure I already made a mental note to come back again but...

I was ready to love this hotel, it is very nicely designed and the staff is friendly. And I am almost ready to forgive this luxury hotel for not giving me free wifi - if it isn't also painfully slow, which sadly it is. The dealbreaker for me however was discovering that they nickel and dime for every last item....

This is my second stay at W Hotel. My first stay is at W Taipei. Location wise, W Seoul is a bit distant from the city and I have to take a hotel shuttle to the metro station. But it also means you have much quieter stay compared to living in the downtown. There is a casino right beneath the...

I stayed in December 2015 for a couple of nights, due to a work event organized there. Boy the room was fantastic! All set in white and red, and it was kind snowing outside - it so felt like Xmas! The lounge is pretty spot on and it is an ideal location for a cocktail party with some dj /...

I spend a night there and it was wonderful, besides the amazing staff that are very friendly, it was just an amazing environment! Even though it seemed like a hotel with a lot of Business guests it was nice that the staff did not treated me like a number in a system but actually seemed caring.

Being Starwood members sometimes pays off in the most wonderful ways, this being one of them. We were upgrade to a beautiful suite and the customer service was amazing. The only downside of using points to pay for luxury hotels is, more often than not, EVERYTHING encompassed by the hotel seems grossly overpriced. As it is quite far away from...
