Stratospheric retreat inside Lotte World Tower, with a stylish spa and sky-high bar
Seoul’s glittering skyline takes on new heights at this swanky sanctuary, set on the upper stretch of a 1,820-foot high-rise. The wow factor is unmistakable in the 101st-floor lobby, where double-height ceilings and local woodwork set a polished tone. VIP treatment starts with the seamless check-in process, which can be handled from the comfort of your sprawling suite—cavernous cocoons adorned with hand-painted cherry blossoms on the walls and spacious bathrooms where even the marble tubs gaze towards a jagged and dynamic cityscape. It’s a similar view that beckons at the stylish spa (don’t miss a dip in the emerald tile-lined pool), which offers Alps-inspired treatments such as hydrotherapy and water immersion. Seeking even more privacy? The sky-top salon offering Han River vistas, bottomless tea and coffee, and a steady flow of gourmet snacks is devoted to hotel guests only. Award-winning chef Yannick Alleno masterminded the experience at STAY, the hotel’s 81st-floor French restaurant, which spotlights regional ingredients such as Gongju chestnuts, Eumseong beef, and Yeosu peninsula clams in its refined and unforgettable plates.
In the Area
As a resident of Seoul’s ritziest neighborhood, the Signiel shares its upscale surroundings with other popular city sites like the Seoul Olympic Park and Korea’s biggest underground mall. The hotel’s Lotte Tower address puts guests within easy reach of attractions including a duty-free shopping center, concert hall, and onsite indoor theme park (the world’s largest), Lotte World, complete with an ice-skating rink and aquarium. If you’ve had your fill of futuristic fun, don’t fret: you’re very close to an 8th-century Buddhist temple, Bongeunsa, where visitors can participate in an array of cultural workshops centered on everything from lantern-making to Zen meditation.
How to Get There
Its a really beautiful hotel and the service is excellent! We stayed on the 90th floor with the Han river view and it was simply gorgeous!! The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfortable, the room amenities was of good quality and it came with 2 complimentary shirts/top pressing service per day. Only downside is that being located in Jamsil meant that the hotel was far away from most of the shopping areas and being a new hotel, alot of taxi drivers did not know where it was. On the day of our arrival, the taxi driver (from Incheon Airport) stopped us outside Lotte World Mall, and because it was around 9am, the mall was not opened yet. And we had to walk around outside the Mall to figure out where the entrance to Signiel was... and walking around with luggages and all was not a nice experience. So will be good for first timers to the hotel, please ask the hotel for the GPS destination in Korean, so that the taxi driver will know to alight you at the correct entrance.
Room was nice and spacious and with internet speeds at well over 100mbps! Beds super comfy. For a business traveller this just works. There is a large desk with plug points. Super clean as well. Nice bathrooms with good pressure and those lovely Toto do it all toilets :-)
Room was well prepare before my arrival.
The room was big and classy with top notch service provided.
The view from room was spectacular.
The TV and sound system was good and amenities was perfect.
I will come back again.
Stayed here 1 night and were really impressed with the total package.
On arrival, we were upgraded to a room on the 100th floor with an even better view. Room was very big, high-tech toilet seat, and large shower and bath. Guest lounge has a great sunset view and in general is high enough to skip the actual skyview lounge. Swimming pool (inside)and gym have a great view.
Breakfast offered lots of options, both local and continental. Overall, it’s not cheap by any means but surely worth it for the experience itself.
Only slight remark is the fixed position of the tv, which somewhat obstructs parts of the otherwise great bed-to-city view. Perhaps this is something to make flexible?
We stayed here for 4 nights on the 99th floor and were truly blown away by everything Signiel has to offer.
Great location with a mall and train station nearby, staff were friendly and helpful, room was so spacious, clean and well equipped, and the view we got from our room is to die for. Everything is impeccable it makes it so hard to leave...
Signiel is definitely the best and we can't wait to return!
