Chloe P. Groups South Korea, August 23, 2015
the service was really terrible.

Bed, amenity, room view.
The service was terrible. I don't want to write again here since I've already submitted my review to the hotel. Anyway, I think they don't care the guest's complaints at all. I was so disappointed. I've heard that this hotel is the best hotel in Seoul but honestly, I really don't understand and disagree that.

One of the best, if not THE best hotel in Korea!

Accomodations, amenities, services.
Believe the hype, the Shilla hotel is simply one of the very best, if not THE best hotel in Korea. From the lavishly decorated surroundings, to the large, beautiful lobby, to the many gourmet restaurants, top-notch facilities, expertly-trained staff, and outstanding guest rooms, what more can you want in a 5-star luxury hotel? Even the most basic guest room is large, modern, and meticulously clean. The bedding, in particular, is the most luxurious and comfortable I've ever experienced....better than in most 5-star hotels I've stayed at inculding the best in the US and Europe. The staff are expertly trained, fluent in multiple languages, and very attentive. The facilities, esp. the outdoor pool, fitness center, and spa are amazing. I would also highly recommend the dinner buffet at the Parkview restuarant....expensive but not to be missed! The location is good in that it's up on a hill, away from traffic noise, but a little bad in that a quick access to surrounding neighborhood is a bit difficult.

A gem in the center of Seoul

Location, Hospitality, Room (view, sound proof, amenities, showering facilities, bed and linens were amaizng)
The room was absolutely amazing. The hotel provided many necessary amenities and the room space was designed absolutely great. The bed and linens were so comfortable and the restroom facilities were all so private yet open. The view from our room was the Namsan Tower which was so beautiful at night. The hotel was close to many tourist locations and very easy to get to with the shuttle service provided. The best thing was wherever we were, when we said we were at the Shilla hotel, any cab driver knew right where it was. The employees were also very helpful and accomodating and I was able to use English with no problem. I wish I was able to enjoy the other facilities like the gym and the pool more. Next time on my visit, I will definitely utilize more time to explore what Shilla has to offer! Great and wonderful stay!
