“Nothing I can complaint about :)”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This time I was going with girlfriends with a mission- shopping and chili out. The Hotel Location did not dispoint us, it came out we have made a smart choice. The location in the main shopping area of Seoul Myodong and the subway station is just right beside the hotel. We felt very safe even we coming back in the mid-night after party. The hotel have carried their standard Westin excellent services and all hotel staffs were very friendly and tried their best to offer any assistance!

Room Tip: Book it via Starwood :)

Its not cheap but its good. The service is impeccable the staff discreet yet friendly and central location is great for seeing the city of Seoul. If it has a fault it is with its staff training, we found them less attentive in the bar and restaurant leaving one sitting in front of an empty glass, plate or coffee cup for far too long. Mind you that help me with a slightly lower drinks bill!

Room Tip: Ask for one over looking the old building that is the view we had and I found it most pleasing

A great hotel in a great location. Stayed here for 6 nights in May 2013 for vacation and never regretted it. I booked the hotel car service, while expensive, is great after a long trans-Pacific flight. I stayed in an executive king room, which was on a corner, so windows on two sides, nice. I had access to the club floor, which had a great breakfast, mediocre mid-afternoon snacks, but a very good evening lay out. The room is first rate, clean, well maintained, etc. The hotel seems very security conscious (not sure why), and you have to use room card to access elevator. While some reviewers have complained about the English language skills of the staff, I never had any problems. Location is great. You can access the subway immediately outside the lower level of the hotel via an underground mall (which you can also use to get to Deokung Palace, City Hall, shopping, etc., great when raining). The subway goes everywhere, cheap and easy to use (completely bilingual); taxis generally cheap, usually honest, and easily available (except after subway closes, then some offer off the meter rates). Across the street from the lower level is a 7-11 and a local convenience store (so don't waste money on expensive minibar). Close to Myungdong, great for shopping and restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again (and get a club room if you can).

Room Tip: Try to get a club room on an upper floor, on a corner.

Immediately before staying at the Westin Chosun I was in Tokyo at the Grand Hyatt so perhaps my expectations were high...after all travellers would think Westin and Hyatt would be at the same level.

On the upside the hotel is centrally located and has a good gym and pool. Service was very good and staff responded to requests quickly.

On the down side the room (standard room) was a little tired which was a surprise given how beautiful the foyer is. The breakfast buffet was expensive as was food generally in the hotel. However there are masses of restaurants close by so you can save considerable money by walking five minutes.

Would I return? Probably not. I have stayed in better Westin hotels than the Chosun.

Room Tip: Go as high as possible to avoid street noise.

I stayed in an exec room and I thought the extra cost was worth the breakfast and happy hour drinks in the evenings. There is an airport limousine bus that takes you to and from the hotel to the airport which runs every 20 mins and the hotel itself is in a great location. I think the myeongdong district of Seoul is under appreciated by tourists who come with only Gangnam on their minds. You can walk to many of the historic attractions - palaces, museums - and the shopping is great but also you are just a few minutes from the underground which will take you to most places.

The swimming pool is great and the toiletries in the room smell really nice. The rooms are large, perhaps a little dated but not uncomfortable in any way. WiFi is good and they run a laundry service that operates overnight if needs be. The rooms are quiet and during my week's stay I was never disturbed by noise from the corridor. Probably the only downside is the price which would put this hotel out of my price range for a purely leisure holiday.

A special mention to the porters who stand outside and help get taxi's and give directions etc. They are super friendly and go out of their way to help you.

I am supposed to have meeting in Gangnam but both Intercontinental hotels were full, so I decide to stay at Westin Chosun. . The taxi ride to Gangnam is about 30mins so it is bearable. This hotel is in a very good location, right next to Lotte Departmental Store and cross the road is Myungdong shopping area. In general, it is a very nice hotel. The rooms are getting aged though. In comparison to Lotte Hotel which I stayed there a couple of times and I felt the rooms in Lotte especially the new wing rooms seems better. I chose Westin as I am SPG platinum member..

Room Tip: Select room that is facing the shrine, the room facing the road can be a bit nosier.

Ignore the hype about Gangnam, if you want shopping, ease of moving around Seoul, this is the location to be, and it doesn't get any better than Westin Chosun.

Granted the price is a little on the higher side, but the location, right next to Lotte Departmental Store and the Myungdong district, where you will find pretty much all the shopping you will want to do.

The sights and sounds of Seoul are all within walking distance, so you are never too far from an attraction.

Service at this hotel is simply amazing, lives up to the Westin brand.
