Fantastic Hotel and Location - great rooms and service.
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed here for business but mixed in a few days of vacation as well. The rooms were super nice and spacious. The location was ideal and near many important shopping districts. There is a subway station close by and plenty of restaurants. The service at the hotel was excellent and the restaurant had one of the biggest buffets I've ever seen. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seoul on business or vacation. The food in the hotel restaurant is expensive - probably the only downside - but there is a small bakery in the B1 floor where you can get a coffee and a snack for a reasonable price.

Incredible Experience at the Griffin! Thank you Brandon!

I'm in Seoul alone and wanted to treat myself to a nice evening with a couple of good cocktails. After reading the reviews, I had high expectations, but I did not expect the service and quality to be this good. I sat at the bar and met Brandon, who is a phenomenal bartender. He made me a drink called a "Lucid Dream" and it was without a doubt the best cocktail I've ever had. Brandon made me feel like the only guest there. He was incredibly welcoming and wonderful to talk to. I will definitely be going back.

Two tumbs up for JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul Hotel.
Although the location is in the old town of Seoul, but other then that is perfect.
The spacious room, delicious buffet breakfast at Tavolo 24, all the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We booked for 2 rooms for 7 nights and we borrowed a wheel chair for all the time of stay.
The twin room have two double bed which is big and comfort but pity we cannot control the air conditioner in the room which make us felt cold at midnight, fortunately that again the staff accommodate us with the portable heater (which we should request from the beginning) and it solve the problem.
The hotel location Dongdaemun very near to wholesale market for clothing and ladies fashion (some of the department store open until 4AM in the morning) and also very near to subway station too.
Really impressed and surely will recommended and will choose the same hotel if we visit Seoul next time.

It’s a nice property in heart of the city around the East gate. A bit far from the airport, almost 80 mins ride.

Though I didn’t explore the nearby places, but it seemed to be surrounded with shopping areas.

Good restaurant with a great buffet spread. The room was nice overseeing the East gate.

Perfect as Usual

It’s hard not to give this hotel a 5 star review . As always I had a great stay , staff are extremely attentive, hotel is immaculately clean and the location is perfect for shopping and public transport links . The underground station is right outside and the airport shuttle bus should you wish to use is right around the corner . The griffin bar on the 11th floor is brilliant with most nights having a live jazz band . Well done to all the staff at this brilliant hotel .
