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.

6-star hotel in disguise as 5-star
Utmost luxury hotel at every single details from bath room to mini bar. I stayed so long time ago I found Shilla hotel made extreme makeover. We can say 6 star hotel in disguise as 5 star. Staff look so formal and more men than women. You may feel secured. It can be pros and cons. Overall, very detailed presentation at all corners of the facility. Plus, they will bring MOYNAT. Bar and restaurant seem overpriced but it worths. Try afternoon tea: the best in Seoul.
