beautifully appointed hotel with attention to important details. Numerous staff are very well trained and go beyond basic requirements to meet guest expectations. At the busy breakfast room our server practically sprinted to refill our coffees, not wanting us to wait in the least. One small criticism is the reliance on one coffee station which is a barista-type counter from...

I had the luxury of staying at Shilla Hotel a year ago. They have this rustic yet modern feel. While the room I stayed in felt a little cramped, the amenities were just about right. They even refilled their welcome gift: a box of various chocolates! The staff were also multilingual so they could converse in English, Japanese, and Chinese....

Stayed at 17th floor with separate check in, breakfast and extended happy hour at 23rd floor. Room was very fine with so many fine details appealing to minimalistic Nordic countries' citizens. Really appreciated an authentic, Korean way of running a hotel highly attractive to an international customer. Would be happy to stay there for an extended period in Seoul.

A really great place to stay. Friendly and very service-minded staff (adhere to strict no-tips policy). Room nice, quiet and big (stayed in Executive Business Deluxe Double).

Stopped in to have their fabulous buffet lunch. Great selection foods, well worth the price. (About $23. US). They don't serve dinner, but have yours mid day. Get there early as it is quite popular. There is a bar as well.

The Shilla Seoul is perfect, and I do not use that word lightly. The hotel combines Korean tradition, hospitality, and technology in perfect harmony. I need for nothing in this hotel because its staff has already thought of everything I could possibly want. Everything just feels simultaneously planned and curated.
