About The Shilla Seoul


Established in 1973 as the hotel sector subsidiary of the Samsung Group, South Korea’s largest conglomerate, The Shilla Seoul is the national leader in premium hospitality services. The business was established after taking over the historic Yeong Bin Gwan state guesthouse. In 1979, the group’s flagship hotel – The Shilla Seoul - opened next to the Yeong Bin Gwan. For more than three decades, it has been internationally renowned as South Korea’s premier luxury hotel, offering exquisite personalized Korean hospitality and services. In 2013, the hotel underwent a major renovation under the acclaimed designer Peter Remedios.

Very lovely awesome stay!!
Decor, staff, cleanliness
Perfect stay. Was afraid that our expectations are too high because of all the raves and reviews online. However it proved us just right and highly exceeded our expectations. Staff who received you from the moment you arrive till the concierge till the housekeeping staff all made our stay very pleasant. The room was big, comfortable and we love both the bed and bathroom. Nothing to complain!
