We live in Seoul and decided to treat ourselves to a weekend break at The W. We were greeted so warmly by the team when we arrived and throughout our stay we continued to be treated with real warmth and courtesy. Just can't understand the reviews referring to unhelpful staff - I wrote to the Manager and commented that I...

Stylish hotel! The room is beyond praise. Bed very comfortable. Everything you need and even more (I bought a music CD) is available. Staff very attentive and friendly. . The territory is almost all of the casinos and duty free to the pharmacy. Have more to these hotels!

This is a hotel you won't forget......from the moment you walk through the entrance you enter a totally different hotel experience. Relaxed but efficient and smart staff....well you can't really call them staff....more like the W Team.....plus an amazingly trendy, modern, open, light and musical entrance area. You just want to party from the moment you walk in! And the...

Staffs were very kind and tried to do their best. The modern style room was very comfortable and the music from the ceiling in bath room was fantastic. It was unforgettable memory to see Han river through window. I couldn't believe I could hear the sounds of some birds from the mountain in this metropolitan city Seoul. The restaurents served...

AGree with some of the other reviews below, the wrong place and a party location. If you want top notch service with similar price, go for Shilla or the Hyatt. They are definitely professional. This place is run mostly (not all) by a bunch of immature, condescending, arrogant children staff that you will be wasting your time and money. They...

If you are in Seoul on business or traveling, this is definitely the wrong hotel. I think this is a stage to be seen but nothing else. Everything is so extremely over-pretentious, over-priced, over-done, over-played it made me feel uncomfortable. the view is supposed to be stunning but found nothing special, i only saw a grey river and a smog...

If you are a party lover, staying in this hotel is a must. The music start from the the hotel lobby to every corner you can get, must spend your night at the Lobby bar. Room are very spacious with a good bose sound system, swimming pool is very modern and the breakfast area come with a very nice view....

I'm not a W fan, but this place really was a winner- despite the 40-minute car ride into center city. Not sure why the other reviews are so love and hate on this hotel. As Madrid says, the most impressive part of this hotel- aside from the great views back into Walkerhill and of the river- are its staff. They...

I'm a very picky traveller. My work takes me off the beaten track to some less convenient places around the world. Thus the finer details of service make all the difference to me. Having been with SPG for a while, I decided to give the W a try on my next trip into Seoul. I was more than pleasantly surprised....
