Imperial Palace Seoul

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I'm happy with this hotel in almost all aspects except for the non-smoking room I got from them. On the second day of my stay there was strong smell of cigarette smoke inside my room which I suspect might have come in from the vent. And my previous stay at this hotel encounter similar issue. So far I've stayed at this hotel twice. And for both stays non-smoking room have had issues. I'd still recommend this hotel but be very careful and demand a REAL non-smoking room if it is important to you.

If this is supposed to be one of the best places in the city, perhaps skip Seoul... We may have had a dudd room, but even still it was dated (furnishings, technology, style circa 1983) and while clean, showed its age -- in the new "sketchy" wiring popping out from below the carpets, the black edges of the carpet, which may have been mould (we weren't there long enough to bother to find out) and the stretched lumpy carpet that we kept tripping over. Service was good and based on the cars at the door there was quite bit of money here, so I can only guess that somewhere in this hotel are nicer rooms. As far as location, travelers visiting for the first time probably want to stay closer to city hall, as we found were making our way to this part of town quite often. The hotel does have easy access to the subway. All in all, one is probably better off getting a higher end room in a mid-range hotel rather than a mid-range room at the Imperial Palace.
