"Great place to stay for a short city holiday"
We recently had a lovely stay at the Shilla. Staff was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The beds were extremely comfortable and cozy (I slept like a baby which is quite rare when I travel). The room was well laid out. The bathroom was spacious and very well equipped and stocked though there were no locks on the toilet and shower doors so not ideal for a family really. The bathtub and sink area had a sliding door which again didnt have a lock. The shower had excellent pressure and was very easy to operate. The rooms must have been recently renovated because everything looked new and sprightly. The buffet breakfast is quite a spread … crispy waffles baked to perfection ... few signature items like pistachio roll and spinach bread were a nice addition to the the usual eggs, cold cuts, cereals etc. I wish there were more Korean dishes … we just got white kimchi on one day. The breakfast area looks out to Namsan and few adjoining mountains which were covered in gorgeous bright foliage and we got a table with a view each day which made it quite a unique experience. A special thanks goes out to the Concierge Kevin Jung who was so patient and helpful with all our queries. He recommended a lovely place for dinner and helped to made reservations for us and kindly wrote out the destination names in Korean every time we were stepping out. On the last day I went up to the pagoda and the sculpture garden on the Shilla property… I had the place pretty much to myself on the beautiful, sunny, autumn afternoon and it was such a nice experience and lovely way to bid farewell.
Shilla Hotel was suggested by my Korean colleague. Because it would be my second trip to Seoul, I told myself that I should try some local hotel instead of an international brand. The hotel did not let me down. Good location, close to Meondong and Dongdamon; convenient transportation, shuttle bus for airport transfer, hotel free shuttles to MTR station, Menondong and Dongdamon respectively; luxurious deco and absolutely meticulous room facilities. I stayed there for three nights. Happy and relaxed. I will definitely revisit this hotel for my next trip. The only regret of my stay was that I did not have chance to try the restaurants not even the breakfast restaurant as there are so many good food out there in the city.
Shilla really is an iconic hotel in an ideal location. the rooms were spacious and facilities were great and my view of Namsan Tower is awesome. i really appreciate the shuttle service to duty free shops and myeongdong and dongdaemon. our stay coincided with a celebrity wedding so security was a bit tight though that is no fault of the hotel but the event organizers.. if you get tired of hotel food, there are numerous restos and convenient stores located just outside the hotel staying in opulent Shilla makes one feel affluent as well i would want to stay here again next time i visit Seoul
Great hotel, good location, the room had an iron and complimentary toothbrush in the room . Breakfast caters for all pallets. The shower was epic. Its Perfect. The Staff were lovely and spoke better English than me.
"Superb Week in Seoul "
I spent 10 days at The Shilla while visiting Seoul for business. The hotel is modern and beautiful. I had an executive level room with access to the executive lounge. The food and drink in the lounge were first class. My room was very quiet and comfortable. I would have loved to have purchased the duvet on my bed to take home but, unfortunately they were not available for sale. The fitness center was very large with a variety of exercise equipment, weights, and an outdoor walking area. A colleague used the sauna and raved about it. All of the staff I encountered were very professional and accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel.
