A really great place to stay. Friendly and very service-minded staff (adhere to strict no-tips policy). Room nice, quiet and big (stayed in Executive Business Deluxe Double). Great executive lounge with a nice and varied selection of food and drinks. Lounge a little crowded during peak hours, but it was always possible for us to get a seating. Easy to...

Club-level room was comfortable and clean. Lounge was roomy and smart and snacks and drinks and their variety was excellent. Staff was polite and helpful. Price according to level was a bit too high. Transport from Hotel to Myengdong and Dongdaemung was good. Near the Hotel was shopping center and it was full of things to buy, but be ready...

Stopped in to have their fabulous buffet lunch. Great selection foods, well worth the price. (About $23. US). They don't serve dinner, but have yours mid day. Get there early as it is quite popular. There is a bar as well.

The Shilla Seoul is perfect, and I do not use that word lightly. The hotel combines Korean tradition, hospitality, and technology in perfect harmony. I need for nothing in this hotel because its staff has already thought of everything I could possibly want. Everything just feels simultaneously planned and curated. My room window overlooked the city from the West, and...

I used this hotel on multiple occasions while traveling for a global company. I worked long days and it was always great to be welcomed home each night by the superb staff. The food was good and catered to my American taste. When you travel the globe having food that is familiar is welcomed. Rooms where spacious and well appointed.
