“Excellent hotel, great breakfast”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I came to the Ritz on business with a group of colleagues. Overall I was extremely satisfied with the hotel. Friendly greeting upon checkin, first time I have seen 3 employees check in 6 people at once, more efficiently than nearly every other hotel. Typical Asian extreme friendliness and courtesy. Room was nice, equipped with the fastest wifi ever. Included breakfast buffet was well above average, maybe even great (I had one phenomenal breakfast at another hotel on this trip, which is coloring my appreciation for what was at the time an excellent included breakfast). I will definitely stay here again.

From the time of arriving to departing all the staff were attentive, rooms, restaurants and facilities first class. Any requests made were met with a willing smile with a sense that the member of staff really wanted to help. Luggage was taken to our room without requesting and collected on day of departure and put in our taxi. Only negative was we could not stay longer !

I have stayed at the ritz last month for business trip. Overally, it gave me fantastic experience. Very clean facilities, nice and kind staff and extraordinary gangnam views. Additinally, i wanna recommend spicy seafood noodle at the chinese restaurant there to all of you guys those who want to explore the ritz cuisine. I have tried most of chinese food all of the world, but there the ritz-carlton,seoul gave me a chill (lil bit spicy tho, but it was alrght since im addicted to spicy food). It was awesome.

I've visited Seoul for my business trip and stayed at The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul for 5days. During my stay, I really enjoyed the newly renovated fitness center which is well equipped. Not only good facilities but good employees and service was there, also.
I also like balcony in my room. I could see nice city view and could refresh ! Overall, I satisfied with my stay and definitely will stay with The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul for my next visit again.

Stayed here for 4 days in November visiting clients in Seoul. The stay was outstanding, the service impeccable and the experience was just enthralling. The food, the rooms were all all Classic Ritz. The staff starting from the reception to the attending staff in the Executive lounges were just fantastic. Of course the location (Gangnam) helps!

A constant traveler, I stay mainly at the Ritz, JW Marriott Marquis and the likes and have stayed at almost all the major properties all over the world and this one just takes the cake in terms of service! cant wait to be back!

Kudos!
