"Great hotel both for business and leisure"
Stayed a few days for business and The Shilla Seoul is top notch on a global standard. And I have travelled alot. Lovely staff, beautiful interiors and food. Great breakfast buffet and the beds are heavenly. Fitness area great as well.
A luxurious accommodation for the suite room with refined room arrangement. Staff in the premier lounge are highly receptive to our needs with impeccable service. The suite comes with free access to Sauna which is so clean and well maintained and private. Guests were treated with respect and warmth and staff on and off ensured health safety of guests. Looking forward to coming back in near future.

"Visually gorgeous with understated elegance and perfect service"
Visited this hotel late autumn and took full advantage of the breathtaking view from the hotel which on a hill overlooks the Namsan mountains which were covered with orange and red autumn leaves. Being a hotel lover, here are a few notes that I'd like to share: 1. Interior & Design: Unlike a lot of hotels you see these days in China and around Asia, there are NO gaudy looking chandeliers or extravagant displays of marble nor ostentatious gold trimmings around every piece of furniture. Hotel Shilla has understated elegance and opulence with a warm undertone of wood combined meticulously with dark granite and leather fitted furniture all under dim but perfect focused lighting. Both the interior are exterior are created with such perfection that I spent 2 hours just walking around the hotel. 2. Rooms: I stayed at the standard 36sq meter room which once again was consistent to the overall theme of the hotel. It was minimalist and relative small but again you have to appreciate the thick white carpet and the carefully selected wood furnishings. The bathroom was sleek with modern fittings and separated from the main room with a glass panel. The best part of the room was the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and landscape 3. Food & Beverage: If you are a lover of fine dining and wine, this hotel offers amazing restaurant and bar outlets. We regularly had wine at the lounge bar where there's a live band every night. The wine list is extensive and if you avoid the old world and focus on the new world, we found a few gems (Duckhorn Merlot, Two Left Feet) at decent prices. The library bar is great for a quiet coffee with very comfortable sofas and a fireplace in the middle. For fine dining, there is La Yeon and Continental. We chose Continental as the food was more compatible with the wines we wanted to have. I recommend the restaurant more for lunch due to its spectacular views during a clear day. The food is modern french and for 150 USD, you get 6 courses which while expensive is immaculately made and presented. And finally if you are not in a mood for fine dining or wining, do not miss the extensive breakfast spread. Its the best I've seen in Asia!! Facilities: The indoor pool is a 25 meter pool which has a one sided glass wall allowing you to enjoy the beautiful view of the landscape while you swim. The gymnasium similarly is surrounded by large windows allowing you to view the garden while you're on the treadmill. The gym is equipped with both free weights and cardio machines. The best part of using the facilities was the post gym sauna visit. Beautifully crafted heated jacuzzis, baths and saunas are available. Service The service was perfect. The staff spoke fluent English and at all times displayed high levels of professionalism.
"A very warm and cozy 5 stars hotel "
This is my fourth stay in Shilla Seoul and it never failed me. The room is comfortable, spacious bathroom and high quality of towel, facial tissue and toiletries (Molton Brown from England) Location is above a little hill where there is a MRT station and 24 hours convenient stores available at the end of the hill. The hotel is very quiet without much tourist crowd and is one of the high end hotel for many local to spend time with. They do have shuttle bus commute between Myeong-dong and Dongdaemun with limited timing. To commute via taxi is very convenient for those who are lazy to walk. It is around KRW5000 to reach Myeong-dong. There are Direct limousine bus from Incheon international airport but it can takes up to two hours to commute depends on the traffic condition. Est KRW16000 per person. Shilla Duty Free is one of the best in town. For those who preferred to have a high end quiet hotel and not worrying to commute via taxi i would highly recommended this hotel.
