“Clean& Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Fast check in, very attentive staff, check out was easy too. Rooms clean and comfortable. Restaurant, I had only breakfast here, but had good choices with continental and asian varieties along with fresh fruits. They served Cuppuccino if you choose (otherwise regular coffee) so liked it. First two days raining heavily, the hotel umbrella was quite handy. Gangnam streets are near by for shopping and restaurants, good location though little pricey.

It was exactly what I expected from Ritz-Carlton. A clean comfortable room, excellent service friendly staff. The breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious. My only negative experience was when I sat at the bar one night. I waited for an extremely long time without being acknowledged. Long enough to peruse the menu and see the ridiculous prices being charged for drinks (even for Seoul). I decided to buy a bottle of wine from the lobby deli instead.
Otherwise, a wonderful hotel.

The hotel is beautiful. We got a room upgrade at no extra cost (thanks AmEx). Breakfast has a great variety of both international and local delicacies. We had a dental (inconvenience, should I say?) and the hotel handled it as if it was a serious medical emergency. They assigned a driver / translator that took us to the dentist at no cost whatsoever.
We are deeply impressed with the kindness of the wonderful South Koreans !

All hotels should strive to be like this. More than the attention to detail is the hospitality and sheer excellence. I was toasting bread on the club for and this sweet girl saw this and she said she would bring it to me when it was done. She did that plus she brought tea. The Ritz Carlton staff certainly know the meaning of a warm welcome.

Requested special care for my wife since the wedding anniversary
and staff at the front recognized us when check in and even set up small amenity in the room.
Of course they did not forget warm farewell wishing us coming back to enjoy the Ritz.
Appreciated very much!!!

The location is perfect- close to my work location in Gangnam and everything you want to get from Seoul is near the hotel
Guest rooms is tidy and has everything that I need, great bed
Service- Staff were helpful and extremely polite, typical Ritz standard we have come to expect.

Enjoyed my stay very much and would recommend to others

I've been in several hotels in Seoul, and my experience at the Ritz was one o more enjoyable. The hotel staff is exceptional in their hospitality, the hotel is very closely located to the Gangna shopping area, with brand names and great food scene. My room (a Suite) was welcoming, and the shower (the rain shower head with soft bath) was addictive. I would highly recommend and will come back again in my next visit.
