I usually stay at Seoul Millenium Hotel, this time i stayed for the first time at the Westin Chosun Seoul and I was impressed. The rooms are of adequate size and very well maintained, despite the fact the building is already older. The rooms are of adequate size and I stayed in a Executive Guest Office room which comes with free internet as well as access to the Executive Club Lounge. Particularity of the Executive Guest Office is that it comes with an installed and full functionable Laptop on the desk. In this case a very fast 19 inch (!!!) Samsung Laptop with full HD cacpability which is wonderful for to look watch your own movies. The laptop is also very fast.... very very good... there is also free moile phone which you can use( of course calls are chargeable) during your stay.... if you dont have a necessary 3G phone with you....

The bathroom is of good size unfortunately without a separate shower which i normally like in particular. Plenty of Bathroom toiletry make this hotel also very good. The turndown service unfortunately is a bit spotty...

The Executive Lounge is wonderful - good breakfast, nice cocktail hour with plenty of food, and the lounge is a nice place to sit and very modern, it doesnt feel overcrowded at any time...

Overall a very very good hotel, which i consider better thatn Millenium Hilton Seoul. For the time being it will be my hotel in Seoul where I will stay in the future.

One of the most respectable addresses in town, the Westin Chosun is very well located for people visiting central Seoul. It has been regularly updated to keep pace with the competition, and its rooms and fitness club are very good indeed.

The public areas are not the largest, as is the building, but I appreciate the view over the little garden in the back of the hotel, an unexpected bonus in busy Seoul.

The standard rooms are not especially spacious, but very well equipped and decorated; do no count on free upgrades to larger rooms unless you are a Starwood Platinum member, as Starwood hotels tend to be stingy with everyone else. Some rooms are equipped with a desktop computer. The executive lounge is however nice and serves an excellent breakfast.

There is an underground shopping mall under the hotel, through which one can walk to the nearby Lotte shopping center. The immediate vicinity of the hotel is otherwise not very pedestrian-friendly, because of the wide streets and traffic.

Booked 3 nights, smooth check in. standard room. Very small bathroom. 12th floor overlooking the small temple. aisle where rooms are is quite sad. There was quite a noise at night, sounded like some strong a/c. Breakfast was ok, seen better. I waited for the omellet chef to turn around and face me for 1 minute, then a chef from another dept. told him a customer was waiting and he still took 5 seconds to turn around. I asked him if he could put salt and pepper and he told me: "at your table".

We used the concierge often, helpful, but did not tell us that normal cabs do not go up all the way up the hill to Seoul Tower (and it is one steep hill). I don´t think an elder person could make it. They did not tell us that to return to the hotel there are no cabs and that the only way is to take a bus (there a re 2 or 3 that drop people off in different points of the city... not what you expect from a 5* hotel concierge . There was no turnover service until we told them, and I am sorry to say it wasn´t as in other 5* hotels (i.e. they do not open up the bed). Apart from location, these are the small details you look for in a 5* hotel. The rest of personel in the hotel were nice, and the bed is very good.

Have stayed at Westin Chosun numerous times. Have also stayed in many other hotels in Seoul but the Westin is best for business trips unless most of the meetings are in Gangnam area.

As most of my meetings are in the Sokong-dong area, this is the best hotel.

Great service, excellent restaurants and good gym/pool.

Night life not the best but the party areas in Apgujeong-dong and Cheongdam-dong are only 20-30 minutes away.

I will most likely stay in this Hotel on future trips to Seoul. The location is fantastic - right next to an interesting shopping district and with a 7-11 down the street for snacks. The room was average but the service was excellent. The mobile phones they have in the rooms, since my Blackberry didn't work in Korea, was extremely useful. The staff were very professional. I like this Hotel much better than the Hilton (fairly old and dated) and while not quite as nice as the Hyatt, I thought the location more than made up for the difference. The Hyatt feels like its in the middle of nowhere. The main street can be a bit noisy early in the morning as the motorcylces buzz by - but only a problem for those of us with jetlag!

This hotel ranks with the best of the Westin Hotels in other locations and is centrally located. The conference facilities which we used were flexible and easily accommodated a number of conferences on at once. Transfers to and from the hotel are cheap and comfortable, via the limo buses. I would not take a taxi.
Close by you can walk to a traditional palace, the underground and to the subway shopping.
