I spent several days with my friends from japan at this hotel in april. We decided to stay at character rooms where I could see lotte themepark inside through a window. It was so much fun for adults like us staying at kids room!!! So fancy and cute!! I could access free wifi service from the room and the hotel has perfect location only 1minute from subway station. Especially the station is quite centre in Seoul so it was really easy to travel around the city. Also, staff at lobby was very nice to us and has wonderful language skills to communicate both english and japanese!

We were stayed there for 4D/3N.our room is on 17th floor. We quite amazed with the service of concierge and bell staffs welcomed us once reach the lobby. My booking is request 1 double bed room but they give us a family room type where 1 double bed + 1 single bed room. After we c/in our room and we found out quite troublesome to have an unused single bed fill the space of the room. We requested to change room but unfortunately no room is available. Might be due to last minute booking we made. The water level for shower head in bathroom was not enough strong.

We quite unhappy with 1 of the front desk staff working night time (Chinese speaking with Chinese name) were he unhelpful to answer our question and solve our problem. Another is the hotel operator staff were keep asking me same question where they didn't understand my simple English question. Some more they put me through helpline and no outcome and end up pay for the local phone bill call during c/out.

The only thing good is the hotel location where Lotte World, Lotte Dept store and Lotte Duty Free all in same building. There is a free shuttle bus to Myeondong (Lotte Seoul hotel) via Itaewon.

When it comes to Lotte Hotel World, I just can say "All staff there gave me their kindness as much as they can."
Nowadays, Showing kindness or giving kindness to customers is general all over the world. However, all of staff at the Lotte Hotel World gave me their full support for me wholeheartedly. I stayed 2nights at the hotel. And It was my first visit to Korea. So, I had been very curious about so many things. I asked lots of things like how can i get the subway station, how much is it to get into Lotte World(an amusement park) and so on. They answered me everything with smile and very good English.
I'm just wondering how the managers train staff to be kind.

At this moment, while reminding myself of those days, I am just feeling happy.
Lotte Hotel World equipped with great things gave me the best convenience I've ever gotten.
Staff there was not only kind servants but also good friends.

I want to recommend this hotel to all of people who will visit Seoul in Korea.

I had stayed lotte hotel world in seoul last month for 7days on a 28th floor. Room was clean and comfortable, location was so great that I could go everywhere without any problem.
There is a club lounge on the same floor so it was easy to access the lounge.
Breakfast and snacks are great and cook was humorous. Lounge employee provides careful service. I really appreciate that.
Price is reasonable and would be back if i had a chance. ;]

I spent 2days in seoul staying at this hotel for business. From check-in process to checkout, all staffs were so motivated to help me. Especially when I had a problem with the temperature in my room even at mid night, one it the staff straightly came up to my room and tried to manage it. (Not much had been changed though...) nice location to take metro and it's close to the olympic park about 10mins away and has a jogging course around the lake just next to the hotel. Lovely stay and I would like to recommend this hotel!

I stayed at the Lotte World Hotel in Jamsil for over a week for my Wedding.

It was a perfect location for my Wedding ceremony as parking was ample and those who didn't have a car could get there easily via the train.

I used almost every service and was delighted with all.

Emerald Room - My wedding reception was held here. Personalised and unique right down to the slideshows and lighting. Everything went off without a hitch and the Wedding planner service on the 3rd floor was very helpful and cooperative.

Mega CC Restaurant Bar - I had several family get togethers in this bar that lasted long until the closing hours of 1am. It was great to have this place available and conveniently on the underground floor of the hotel.

Internet was simple to log on to with phones etc. and connectivity and strength was perfect.
The Lotte Dept. Store is nearby with a food hall at the bottom underground floor and also proper restaurants on the top floor. Good choices all around.

The staff of the hotel was cheerful and willing to help and was fluent in English, Chinese, Japanese and of course, Korean. There was, in particular, a very helpful Chinese man at the Reception whose name I have forgotten (Choi?). He is particularly pleasant and will make you leave with a smile.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room for the view!

It was my first time staying over in Lotte Hotel World. I was there on April 29, 2013. I would like to appreciate all hotel managers and workers. First of all, thank you all for taking extra care of me for my first visit. And it was too late to eat breakfast so I have to skip it but, they managed me with the roomservice so that I can eat. And also thank you to the front desk with Check In-Out Service. They were letting me know couple of times about the CheckOut time so that it won't delay the schedule. I would love to visit and stay over again in Lotte Hotel World. I appreciate your Care and Services! Thank You
