“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

This hotel is right in the middle of downtown and means you can walk around between many of the touristy areas. Rooms are older style, but beds comfortable and all clean. We were upgraded on check-in to an executive suite (we had booked a junior suite, as we needed an extra bed and previous reviews suggested the standard rooms were too small) so that was a great surprise.
Breakfast is excellent, loads of choice. The breakfast room was just a bit too hot in our view, as we were all layer up to explore the city, so a couple of degrees cooler would have been good for us. Staff are great, very helpful and freindly

I stayed on 3-5Jan13 with a good promo rate with free extra bed for my kid and free wifi in the room. Nice hotel with nice location with Myeong Dong and Lotte dept store just steps away which very convinient to get some foods and drinks. Nice staff with quick respond and the airport bus go directly to the hotel.

Spent a long weekend at this hotel from 14th to 18th December 2012 with my wife and friends. Had a suite on the Executive club on the 19th floor, the room was good, bedding nice. There is a turndown service but did not use it.
The Executive club was open from 5.00 till 8.00pm and had all kinds of wine & whisky etc. Self service snacks were nice. Breakfast in the club was very good but for a wider choice the restaurant downstairs is exceptional.
The Hotel is very central and the large Lotte Super store is next door so are some very good restaurants and many shops etc. The open very large market is about 15 minutes walk away.
Loved the Gym and Sauna etc.

Room Tip: Large Central Hotel with 2 entrances, Nice service but a little expensive

This is my 4th stay at the Westin in as many months and I get more disappointed with every stay.

I travel to Seoul on business and my stays are between 7 and 10 days so some hotel room space is therefore appreciated. It have just arrived for another 10 day say and it seems that the more often you stay at the hotel and the higher your SPG status, the smaller the room they give you. Be very careful when booking as some of the rooms are extremely small, even on the Executive Club floors. I have a wardrobe with enough space to hang 6 pants and shirts, hardly enough space for a 10 day stay. It may be that I have just returned from a stay at the Four Seasons on Hong Kong at roughly the same rate as the Westin, but but the rooms at the Westin feel rather "Hilton" like to me. No proper headboard, no bedside lamps and no curtains. Not what you would expect from a Westin.

The executive lounge and gym/spa is a plus and the service and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, but it's time to move on!

Room Tip: Some rooms are extremely small and certain rooms have no curtains, bedside lamps and soft headboards...

Spent a weekend, Friday and Saturday at the hotel celebrating with my wife. The rooms are well furnished, modern, clean and very comfortable. We booked into a Executive Club room, so we had access to the Club Lounge. The snacks during the day in the lounge were sparce, but between 5PM - 8PM, they have a good range of light food and good range of drinks. Certainly makes the premium you pay for for Executive Club, well worth it. Get there early to ensure getting a good table. Breakfast in the lounge is very good, you also get access to the main Breakfast resturant for free breakfast of you are in an Executive Club room, but get there early on weekends, as the main breakfast resturant had a queue when we arrived there at 9.30AM on Sunday morning, and we had to retreat to the Club Lounge for breakfast.

Location of the hotel is great if you want to explore downtown Seoul, with palaces in easy walking distance and the new City Library is just a few minutes walk away. Whilst hotel is expensive, but then is all the downtown 5 star hotels, it makes for a great stay and well worth it if you are celebrating something special with that special person in your life.

Room Tip: Executive Club Floor is well worth the extra cost, ask for room facing the mountains and palaces.

Just 5 minutes walk to Lotte Department Store & Myeongdong, one of the favorite shopping place in Seoul.
Also not so far to Dongdaemun, 24 hours shopping complex.
All the rooms are smoking free, so you have to go outside the hotel for smoking.
Don't forget to bring the hotel's name card to show to the taxi driver, because most of them can't speak English.
