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.

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.
