Nice hotel but small rooms

Nice locatioin, great shopping mall with awesome food court (basement floor), and subway station stop. Very friendly and professional staff. Only negative comment about the stay is my room was too small (2 double beds). I'm sure they have larger rooms but for $250 - $300 per night I thought the rooms were too small.

Outdated - Great Staff

The room felt outdated, small room - (2) twin beds, not enough drawer spaces to store clothing for a four night stay - more than 4 drawers were used for teh minibar snakcs and drinks, breakfast buffet was over priced at $30 per person with a 33% discount, lobby coffee shop over priced with $13 coffee, lobby level sushi restaurant over priced with over $100 per order of sushi set, carpets throughout the hotel hall way including the room stained and needs toi be replaced, etc... Very friendly and professional staff - one of the best.

Very clean and comfortable

I stay here whenever I come to Korea. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the staff is nice and helpful, like most Korean people. It is a little expensive, but it is attached to the Lotte department store and has many restaurant options onsite.

Pricey, but nice. Good for a more Western travel experience.

Lotte World is a nice hotel. Room sizes are on the small side, but that may be typical of Korean hotels. My not-so-adventurous American family stayed there and liked it quite a bit. The region around it is rather touristy, so it provides "safe" options for those who need at least 1 western meal a day, but means you may need to travel a bit further to find more traditional fare (though it is conveniently located by the main subway line -- and the airport KAL bus stop is right there too). The staff was very eager to help, and though my family had three people originally in a room with two twins and a roll away, they allowed them to switch charge free to a room with a double and a twin. Overall it was very nice, but we would never have made reservations if it weren't for the great 50% off deal we had. Even with that, there are much cheaper hotels which we almost picked, but the pluses above made it perfect for a week in Seoul.

Perfect location

I stayed thee nights with my wife. In a walking distance, it has everything, a department store, a amusement theme park, and a subway station. And there is nice lakeside walking trail. It is very good place for family trip and business trip as well. I would stay here for my next trip to Seoul.

I arrived there at 15:00 after long flight from Abu Dhabi. A receptionist was very kind for fast administrative work so that I could go up to the room and take a hot shower . Check in and out were very convenient.

Great location

Right off a subway station, which means great convenience for transport or for meeting others along korea's great subway system (one of the world's best subway systems in my opinion). Hotel is clean and extraordinarily modern and elegant. Free wifi finally which is a great addition. Gym is on small side but comparable to other gyms you will find on other 5-star resorts and hotels. Staff is extraordinarily considerate and professional and their service is impeccable. Food options are abundant at adjoining mall.

This hotel was ok. I was disappointed in the cleanliness, with a hotel having five stars I would expect it to be almost perfect. This hotel looks awesome as you go in but the room was dirty in the corners and on some of the walls. I just would expect something better.
