Grand Hilton Seoul5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Only twin bed has a bath tub(deluxe rooms don't have it). Breakfast doesn't have any kind of cheese no bagels. To use the swimming pool you must bring a swimming cap. It is sold on the reception desk of swimming pool for $3. Room was clean but no toothbrush and toothpaste are included to amenities. Amenities has only shampoo,body wash, conditioner, body lotion and a small soap bar. Don't expect it is five-star hotel. Just old but clean 4-star one.
Located in the business area. Very strategic. Closed to shopping center. Very beautiful hotel. Big and comfortable bed and bedroom. Excellent bathroom amenities. Good choices of breakfast, very yummy too.
It might have been below zero but usually in a Hilton there is someone outside to take your bags and someone else to park your car. Not a person in sight. Another disappointment - we are shown to the checkin counter in the lobby and when we asked where the HHonors checkin counter is the checkin clerk points at the elevators on the other side and says "on the 11th floor" instead of asking a porter to escort us to the 11th floor. Its the little things that make or break service............this is not a budget hotel and we were booked into a Club Room. We went down to the Buffet restaurant to make a reservation and we greeted with "reservations full" before we could even ask. Hello or Anyunghaseyo would have been nice. On the good side, the gym was great with welcoming helpful attendants. The indoor pool looked inviting but we hadn't planned for it so didn't try it out. The café restaurant was not full and the food was very good. The draft that howled down from the lobby every time the main doors were opened detracted somewhat from the dining experience. The bed was comfortable and the room warm and clean. The Club lounge was okay for breakfast but a sparse serving of snacks for evening drinks and no Scotch! Seriously.not even a Johnny Walker red. Checkin and out at the Club reception was seamless and the attendant made sure my car was in the forecourt by the time we got down the elevator. This time there was a porter to load our bag into the car. Being HHonors members we've stayed in various Hiltons around the world and this one is not on a par with the Hilton std. It could do with a renovation to remove the dark 1970's wood décor and give it a more modern brighter feel. The exterior of the building needed a lot of maintenance too. Don't look out your window at the pool roof or the façade of the adjacent wing. The staff didn't seem to know if there was any upgrades planned but maybe the GM has that in hand.
The only draw-back first: the hotel is about an hour away from the Inchon Airport, and you really need a taxi to get there, avoid trains etc - it takes too long! The room was spacious and though it is a new experience with the bahroom sink was placed outside the bathroom, all amenities worked very well. Room service and housekeeping was impeccable and the entire staff helped out showing the utmost professionalism and friendlisness. Dining at the hotel is very easy as there are several restaurants, and the selection seemed very good. The breakfast was ample and fine - took the buffet. All in all quite recommendable for a holiday in Seoul.
This Hilton Hotel is just a great hotel! Rooms are spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable! It's location is not fantastic, but it runs a frequent and free shuttle bus to some interesting places in town. Taxi's are not expensive either, so also an option. Only thing missing, really, is the option to make a cup coffee or tea in the room.
pros: the room is big with warmer. With an automatic bidet and warmer for the toilet bowl(definitely) my favorite place. Staff are respectful and accomodating . I so love the food ..feels like im always at home Cons : far from subway . It will take a lot of time for you to walk to go to subway .to go to your destination area
Pros 1.Strong pressure warm shower. 2.Flat screen TV. 3.Very comfortable bed and pillows Cons 1. Hilton is too poor to give free wifi in the room. Their free wifi is at their lobby. So you can see lots of people gathering at the lobby for their free wifi. 2. Not able to switch on aircond during autumn/winter. If you need to lower the temperature or to get some air running, then you need to open the windows. 3. Toiletries given but no toothbrush. 4. Their tv remote control not able to switch off tv. Therefore, need to get down from bed and manually switch off the tv from the console. 5. There are varieties in their breakfast buffet spread, however no egg station which you can choose eggs to be sunny side or scrambled or omelet Definitely not a 5 star hotel for me.
this is in the old part of town and Seoul is pretty big. If you wanna get more into the zone choose a Hotel closer to Gangnam. If you prefer a quiet Hotel this one is good. You can tell that there is a convention center next door, the rooms are clean and everything works but you can also tell it is frequented quite some times. Staff is great and so is the Gym. Checking in and out was quick and efficiant. Internet worked flawless and is complimentary. Food tasted very good I used roomservice...
The hotel is far away from anyplace and you have do PAY FOR THE INTERNET !!!’ It’s a very beautiful hotel with nice staff. My experience was very good because of the event and the korean people, but having to pay for the internet is outrageous
Beautiful hotel with an outstanding service! Staff is very friendly and professional. Rooms are very clean, quiet and convenient. Behind the hotel there is a beautiful area to hike around (Baikryun mountain area). Shuttle bus brings you to the nearest metro station. Perfect and relaxed place to stay, whenever you visit Seoul.
