Not up to expectations

The Shilla Hotel, known as the "best" in Seoul, was very disappointing. The staff and service was excellent, but the room was small and overheated, internet access was not included (although it was implied in the ad)and the location was not convenient. The hotel is located in its own complex. To get to the street you need to take a shuttle bus. The lobby, while very attractive, has no seating area where it is convenient to wait. Both the hotel shuttle bus and the airline limo bus stop a distance from the front door - VERY uncomfortable in cold weather. I will not stay at the hotel again.

Shilla

The Shilla is a nice hotel. Unfortunately, its 20+ years old, and you can feel it. The service is excellent and pretty friendly (for Koreans). Getting to the hotel from ICN by bus is pretty painful too. The business center is good and the restuarants are comparable to all of the other hotels of its class in Seoul
