of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
This a very good up market hotel however be aware that the in house food is extremely expensive. However In saying that the breakfasts which were a part of the room rate were excellent value and very good meals
"No wifi in rooms"
For a 4-star hotel, it is surprising that wifi is not available in rooms but only in the lobby. Upon checking was informed that room wifi was being installed and was able to access it about an hour later. However speed was slow. Something to note for business travellers.
"An eye-opening whole new experience in Seoul"
I am a frequent business traveler to Seoul and have stayed at many different five star hotels located around downtown Gangnam area and the Seoul City Hall in search of "the one" hotel of my choice for all my upcoming visit to Seoul. This hotel was far down in my list because of the location which seemed quite distant from where I do most of my business in Seoul, and I regret that I had used the distance as my primary criterion. This hotel has the most unique flavor and atmosphere among all the hotels in Seoul mainly attributable to its location! Something that has made me put this hotel aside for so long turned out to be something that I like the most about it! First, one of the best things about this hotels is its location on a beautiful hill and the sense of isolation from crowded and noisy streets full of cars, lights, and people. It gives you the peace and the relaxation almost to an extent that you are at home, a much better home than I have in Canada. I even felt that I was home when I came back to the hotel after a long day of back-to-back meetings :) You can even hike the hill full of trees and beautiful flowers! Second, in terms of the distant to downtown Seoul in Gangnam and the City Hall area, it was not too bad at all. In fact, it only took 30 minutes to 45 minutes to downtown - though I would still recommend to avoid the rush hour traffic. In terms of the room condition including the quality of bed, amenities, etc., I almost found it slightly better than that of other hotels in Seoul - I might have been deluded because I already fell in love with the hotel and the distinguished services by some of the kindest staff. I am just so happy to find "the one" hotel in Seoul. I am calling it my home in Seoul and can't wait until my next visit in late Spring when the hill is even greener and more colorful. Come and join me at this loveliest hotel in Seoul!!
Wow! The bed is probably the best thing from my whole trip. So comfortable! Room is neat and tidy. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast buffet was great. Definitely recommend if you are staying in the area.
"luxury Hotel in quiet natural surrounding in centre of Seoul"
The Walkerhill Hotel environment is a park on a Hill close to the centre of Seoul. The Hotel is a luxury hotel adjacent to The Vista Walkerhill (which is now not open). The Grand has a seperate building called the Douglas. I stayed in that building, which I really loved. The building is build on the mountain slope so all rooms have a terrace, which is conveniant when you are a smoker as all rooms are non smoking. Alltough the price is lower I think it is better it feels like a private club in the Hotel Park. Breakfast is in the main Hotel (5 min walk or shuttle service) or room service. The hotel is not in the centre of town and to get in and out you need some time (10-15 min)but I suppose to sleep this hotel is the quietest in Town.
