Top notch service

All I have to say is when my mom and I were being a hot mess and ran for our airport shuttle, the entire front desk plus the taxi driver were working together to get us there. They checked us out quick, carried our luggages and jackets and ran with us, and even stayed at the bus stop to make sure if we made it. We were very impressed by the level of service we received.

Awesome service

I booked the hotel room for two nights over a weekend stay. Anyway, the room was spacious, clean, and I had a great view of Namsan. Anyway, the front desk and the hotel staff were super friendly. I usually like to hop to different hotels every two or three days when traveling abroad (just to try different rooms and for a change of scenery), but this was the first time that I stayed all four nights at the same hotel (booked two more nights at Shilla). So, I must admit that I enjoyed my stay there).
The friendly staff even dropped me in front of the airport bus stop when I checked out.
One of the best hotel experiences I’ve had in awhile.

Great place for both a business or pleasure stay

This hotel is probably one of the best in Seoul, and as well the most rated! The service is perfect, rooms are big, many facilities and small details which make the difference!
The hotel is not necessarily located is the greatest neighborhood (as far from most business / shopping neighborhood) but benefits from great views in Seoul and beautiful gardens around.
The entrance and lobby may be sometimes crowded with the adjacent duty free mall and the numerous summits; but the staff is very dedicated to make you feel home!

The Best for North Seoul

Beautiful mix of traditional and modern with lovely grounds. Quiet, clean rooms with amazing pillows and views of Namsan. Great food including freshly blended ginseng milkshake with honey at breakfast. Innovative roof top golf with views. 7 star staff who looked after me so well including arranging access to the fitness spa for changing after picking up my luggage from the concierge. All the subtle touches and attention to detail was evident all through. Will be back for sure.

Great comfort but...

The room was great, the bed was excellent. I had a lovely and comfortable sejour at the hotel. The staff were friendly but not too much. I also appreciated how the room was efficiently equipped. Even the fact that there were no password needed for the wifi pleased me. However, I had a major complaint about the hotel’s restaurant: the Parkview. The nursing room was inside the lady’s room! Impossible for fathers to use. It was a huge and unacceptable disappointment. I sincerely hope to see change in the future.
