Absolutely amazing hotel nestled above the upscale IFC mall. Easy assess to Seoul's highly efficient subway system. Great dining options within the hotel and in the mall. Would definitely stay here again!
"First Class Hotel"
My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Conrad in late March. We were in an executive corner suite with club access. The suite is huge, approximately 86 sq. meters, with a separate living room and bedroom. Clean, nicely furnished with good lighting in all locations in the suite. Good storage space for a long stay with the latest gadgetry to control the lights, temperature and blinds. The club lounge is well managed. It is very large with an excellent and friendly staff. Very good breakfast with wide selection of buffet items and made to order hot selections. Reasonably good selection of drinks, canapes and hot selections in the evening, though I expected better quality of wines and scotch----this is a Conrad, not a basic Hilton. Also, very crowded at cocktail time and although staff was able to serve and replenish, seating at a table comfortable enough to eat at was limited. This is a huge lounge and more thought could be given to the type of seats and tables, many of which are not suitable for people trying to eat something other than finger food. The hotel is located in a business district a good distance from the tourist sights. However, the hotel is connected to an upscale mall with plenty of shops, restaurants and coffee places (yes, including a Starbucks). It even has a movie complex. The mall is connected to a metro stop. You don't have to go outside in bad weather and it makes getting from the hotel to anywhere in Seoul pretty easy and inexpensive. Trains run frequently and are clean. However, don't get on an express train during rush hours----you may not be able to get off at the stop you want due to crowding.
"Gorgeous Gorgeous Hotel!"
To start the staff was warm and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were upgraded and we had the corner room on the 36th (the top floor could be wrong on the numbering) which had an amazing view! As soon as we entered the room we noticed there was a welcome note to us in candy. The hotel has an amazing pool area, gym and indoor gold course. The room was stunning, the staff was so helpful, the only thing I could change was the honors lounge was full our first night and we couldn't get in. The staff felt terrible, but remembered us for the rest of our trip. Loved this hotel and hope to return soon.
"Excellent for solo getaway, but may not be the case for couples"
The staff didnt know im a hilton member at all, until Ive entered the room as request for the .complimentary Wi-Fi service offered the members. Nothing was prepared or offered to us for our anniversary. Somehow I chose conrad seoul beecause we spent our last anniversary at conrad hongkong where they were so kind as to give us a complimentary bottle of champagne. We felt valued by the hotel. To this end, the exp with comrad seoul has been a bit disappointing.
"Best hotel we ever stayed at"
My family and I are loyal gold-level Hilton Honors members and stayed at the Conrad for our vacation in Seoul. This was our third time staying at this hotel and we were beyond satisfied. We stayed at many other very good Conrads, Waldorf Astorias, Hiltons or other high end hotels all over the world before and just have to say that the Conrad Seoul is the best we ever stayed at! The location is perfect in Yeouido, a central business district in Seoul. There is a mall right underneath the hotel with many stores, a cinema and many food & beverage outlets. Moreover, there is a direct access to metro line no. 4 and 9 stations. You can reach shopping areas like Myeongdong or Garosugil within 20 minutes and get from Incheon airport by subway without even getting outside once! The facility is very modern and beautifully designed. We had a Grand King Suite with lounge access. The Executive Lounge on the 37th floor is the best executive lounge in the hilton network with great changing food offerings. But most importantly everything is well organized and the staff of every department is beyond professional. We never had any issues at this hotel. From Concierge, Reception, Executive Lounge to Housekeeping, everyone is very friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Eva from the Executive Lounge and her team for the great hospitality! We will be back!
