The VERY Best
No wonder it's the top hotel in Korea. They try their best to maximize the very best experience during the stay. A small jewelry box on the nightstand is one of the examples my wife and I have not experienced anywhere in the world. The room cleaners come in and check for anything we might need whenever we go out for a few hours. Amazing.

10/10 Exceptional

Overall an amazing experience. The restaurants were amazing and included the first Korean restaurant to earn 3 Michelin stars. The staff was very professional and courteous and went above and beyond to find us spots at the restaurants despite very short notice. The hotel itself is positioned in a convenient central location with scenic views and is surrounded by a beautiful and impeccably maintained sculpture garden with an extensive system of hiking trails.

It was a fantastic stay overall for both myself and my parents. Fantastic service and great views of Namsan Tower. Notably, the bedding was very comfortable. I look forward to staying here again the next time I visit Seoul.
