Perfect location

Had a great time staying at The Plaza in Seoul! Was able to make the most of the two days staying in the city thanks to the great location. Staff is very friendly and has good language skills in English+Japanese. Room is comfortable but a little small.

Enjoyed the stay

Great location, helpful staff, clean room and good value. I called the front desk a day prior to heading there, and they gave me clear directions on taking the Korean airlines bus from the airport (its called airport limousine, but is really just a bus). The bus was very convenient, it stops right in front of the hotel and is around $16. Good location, walking distance to many cafes and restaurants as well as to insadong market and historic palaces.

Nice hotel, very close to the city hall. Although the price is NOT cheap, I still recommend this hotel to those who will visit Seoul.

Curious Choices - Bad luck?

My room was an odd and curious thing, and felt a bit like a movie set, more than a comfortable place to sleep. (that monstrous lamps aimed conspicuously at the bed were certainly a part--but the paired mirrors, with the infinity effect, helped complete the oddness) The staff were extremely courteous and nice. The only downside was when I attempted to get a local reservation, and was navigated in error by the concierge (and wandered helplessly for half an hour attempting to find the correct kitchen). That said, they were quite nice and tried to be helpful. The location is fairly central, with some items in walking distance, and others a very easy cab away. With a sufficiently good deal (which I felt I had), I'd go back, but be more aggressive in getting directions--and I would get the premium suite, rather than the very curious premium double.

Beautiful Hotel...Just Too Expensive

This hotel is located in the heart of Seoul with a beautiful view of City Hall, City Center Park, and awesome mountains in the backdrop. It's just too expensive for what you can get other local hotels for. Plus everything inside the hotel is outrageously expensive. For example, 20,000 won for a pint of Guiness in the lounge!!!

My dream come true

I loved this hotel. It was like a dream come true. The staff were amazing. They were always respectful and nice. The front desk staff were English fluent but the other staff were limited. The hotel room was a little small, but I didn't expect to spend much time there, so I didn't see it as a problem. The room was high tech, I felt like I was in a movie. The internet was free, so that was a huge plus...but then there was so much free internet hotspots everywhere in the city too. The location is great. It's right across from City Hall, which makes it an easy landmark if you get lost. It can get noisy since there are almost daily public demonstrations or events. On the plus side, some of them are really cool, like the fashion show. There are two palaces right next to the hotel, so the first day of site seeing is made easy. There are also a lot of stores within a short walking distance, such as Lotte Dept. Store, Lotte Young Store, and Insadong. There are four restaurants to pick from, which was great. They were pricey, but you shouldn't expect anything less from a five-star hotel. I think in summary, this is what I expect from all hotels I go to in the future. I would expect nothing less than what The Plaza gave me from anyone else.

You can save yourself a ton of money on breakfast if you just cross the street to Dunkin Donuts. There are a ton of great restaurants around the area too...although you're a little limited if you don't speak Korean or have someone that does.

Our Stay At the Seoul Plzza

The Hoel is right in the middle of the Financial Center of Seoul. The staff are very obliging and helpfu l. I needed a charger for my cell phone. We chatted for a few minutes with the Concierge. When we got bc to the room, one of the bellhops had been waiting at our door with one in hand..
