Wen L. Couples Singapore, May 29, 2014
Love Seoul! Shopping is great and fascinating ppl.

Excellent staff are very well trained. All speak very good English, and are friendly. Myeongdong, Lotte and Namdaemun are walking distance by underground mall. So is subway. Spotless rooms.
Very happy with friendly service and spotless rooms. Would definitely come back again. So easy to get to myeongdong and subway!

good but could be better

close location to public transport, restaurants within walking distance to shopping areas and availability of direct airport shuttle bus
As a purportedly 5 Star rating hotel one wonders why free tooth paste and tooth brush cannot be provided free as a basic toilet amenity.....
Muhammed Z. Couples Singapore, April 24, 2014
Always great at The Plaza.

The service. The room. The staff.
It was great service, as usual. Except the breakfast buffet. It was quite disappointing taking into consideration the amount we're paying for it!

Centrally located near major attraction

Easy to find
My stay was just average. I have a bad situation explaining to the stuff when i checked in. Seem they dont have enough patient to talk to customer. And the staff lack of attention to our need. I only like this hotel because it close to the palace, city hall and myeongdong. You can reach them by walking distance.

Centrally located city hotel

Location, location, location...
Our stay at the hotel was excellent - It is within walking distance to most of the historic sites, and also shopping areas. Housekeeping staff was also extremely attentive. One thing to note is that the swimming pool and gym facilities are in a different building so we thought it was too much of a hazzle to visit. Also worth noting that shaving kit / toothpaste at Korean hotels are not complimentary by law, but they can be easily purchased from nearby convenient store.

Oversize Boutique Hotel with Five Star Prices

Location, Location, Location
Unashamedly contemporary: from the use of gigantic 2-metre angle-poise lamps on either side of the bed in an already relatively small Club room, to the nightmarishly freaky fairground 'waltzer'-style seating in both the dimly-lit coffee lounge AND the underground bar. Prices in bar and coffee lounge are so high as to stretch credibility - you seriously feel as if you may have crossed into the Twilight Zone. The staff are generally responsive and courteous: 'friendly' is a word that would never leap to mind. This is a mystery when you consider just how friendly and helpful Seoul people are once you step beyond hotel boundaries. The Club Deluxe Double room I had was half the size of what you could expect for a 5* hotel in Tokyo (!!), and lacked many of the amenities: a bath AND separate shower, drawer & wardrobe space, and a suitcase stand from which to unpack / pack. Space was at a premium. Discomfort was further compounded by the irritating connection between the key-card and the curtains: putting it in the slot upon return at night puts the lights on and re-opens the curtains! To close them again you need to get on the bed to use the bedside touch screen. The Club Floor was a mixed blessing. The peace & quiet afforded by a lounge in which to take breakfast is contrasted with the very limited choice of food. Staff were perfectly courteous when addressed, but didn't go out of their way to help. I was asked on 1 morning out of 4 whether I would like tea or coffee after sitting. Disappointingly, there were no Korean dishes. For someone who travels regularly to E & S-E Asia, I’m not used to having such small rooms and mediocre service for 5* prices. Furthermore, while cost wouldn’t normally restrict my choice of venue for a beer or a coffee, I did feel greatly resentful at the prices The Plaza felt they could charge guests, and so felt the need to don hat and coat and head outside. Eco-friendly? No more than most these days. Back to the Lotte for me.
