Somerset Palace Seoul4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I think this hotel offers the best breakfast served with a perfect combination of Korean and western style food. A short walking distance to Insadong, Gyongbok Palace, the biggest book store, and many other places made our day trip easy. Highly recommended.
I found out I paid much ( 30 % ) more than my friend who stayed at the same type of room as mine.
I think I expected too much about this hotel. Most of all, I want to ask orbitz first. Whenever they ask which website I made a reservation for a hotel, the staff correct me it was Expedia not orbitz. I was so confused when they hold my check in process treated me I was lying. So unpleasant experience I can't find any reason to make a reservation through orbitz.
I really enjoyed staying here. I like free breakfast here, health and lots of choices. Good location and quite. I will come back again.
Stayed for four days in March. Everything seemed tired from the exercise equipment to the furniture. Few amenities. Would not stay again. Great location though.
The Somerset is always a great place to stay. It's clean, very well located, and the breakfast is so yummy.
This is a housekeeping hotel so it has a kitchenette and washer/dryer. That keeps me coming back. The location is perfect for visiting the palaces, museums and Insadong shopping street. It is an easy walk to all of them. I've stayed here twice and would choose it again.
I think its better to call it somershine as every thing was shining and great, Staff, Location, Cleanlines and breakfast, it worth every penny we paid
The Somerset is actually an aparthotel, albeit one in an older high rise in very good shape. The room (very spatious by asian standards) has wooden floors, kitchen, washer, flat screen tvs, etc. Excellent location for a tourist, close to the old royal palace/presidential palace complex, museums, shops, etc. Small shallow rooftop pool, but then we din't go to Seoul to swim. Very pleasant rooftop garden. We'd certainly return.
