If Heaven had a hotel.

Staff. Comfort of the room. The Executive Club Lounge.
Everything was 5 star all the way. Unreal staff performance. The Executive Club was first class. Again the staff performed flawlessly. The room was fantastic. Comfortable with a great view. The bed and shower were deluxe. Both pools were also amazing. Jenni who took care of us deserves recognition for her service. If you want a 5 star experience, the Shilla is it.

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.
