Best hotel I've ever been to!
Reviewed 1 day ago

Positives: Ideal size rooms with a terrific bathroom | best breakfast I've ever had with hundreds of cold and hot dishes (from traditional food to continental buffet) | very large and luxurious common areas | the hotel has a duty free | free shuttle service to myeong-dong several times a day | metro station just in front of the main hotel gate | attentive and dedicated staff without being intrusive | live music every day in the hotel bar | Conference spaces and coffee breaks of the most beautiful I've ever seen | best heated interior pool I've seen

Negatives: bar price table is very high (+/- 12 euros for an espresso) | the level of English of the employees is not all the same (only those of the reception communicate competently in English) | you have to pay a fee to use their external pool

Shilla - great hotel but weird pool policy
Reviewed 1 day ago

Had a great long weekend in Seoul with our family with older children. We’re members of the Leading Hotels of the World and had 2 rooms.
The rooms were very nice and the beds great. Also the service was very good and everybody was very attentive and helpful.
My wife and me wanted to chill at the outdoor pool one evening for less than an hour and we heard that there is a fee of 60.000Krw (approx USD 60) per person. We argued that this was not indicated anywhere and we were guests of the hotel that the pool must be free of charge as we have never experienced this on any continent in any hotel in the world. They let us in and we got lounge chairs by the adult pool which was forbidden for children under 13 years. However, the pool had tens of screaming kids with their parents which is fine for us but not if it is supposed to be an adult pool!
It seems Shilla is selling some Pool packages to outside guests, but please change this for guests staying at the hotel as it is expected that Hotel guests have full access to all the pools. Also, please keep the small children in the children’s pool.

Wonderful experience

The Shilla is a great hotel. The rooms are nice and the service is top.
Especially the indoor swimming pool is nice.

Obviously the hotel is a little bit pricey. Especially drinks and food are expensive.

Thé shilla is a big name which deserves its positive comments . Great rooms , outstanding service . Depending on your room rate you have access or not to the spa , indoor or outdoor pool ..... I like all , great volume and decoration , the hotel is quite old but great quality materials always age nicely . You feel fresh air , down town but with a lot of space. Once again.i tried many hotels the 2 Marriotts Sheraton Hilton Conrad .... all in all Shilla is the best .
