We spent a very comfortable and reasonably priced stay at Hotel President just before returning home to Seattle on July 4. While the entire 3 week trip in the southern part of the country was wonderful, we were very much surprised each evening of our stay in Seoul to have entertainment in Seoul Plaza, right outside our window. The first night featured K-pop and the second traditional Korean music and dance. It was fun to be part of such a lively city, from the comfort of our room. There was construction on the new Seoul City Hall, but all hotels in the area are affected by it.
Since there are so many delicious places to eat in Seoul, your choice of room or dining service has to be due to exhaustion and convenience. The breakfast buffet was not as good as other luxury hotels in Korea (Daegu and Gyeongju resort and business hotels were much better, especially in the area of Korean food), but food was fresh.
We appreciated the professionalism of the staff and the attention to our needs, especially with transportation. One of our hosts in Daegu had been married at the President many years ago: we understand it still is the only place with wedding facilities on the top floor, a definite plus for a memorable event.
