Great location, safe and convenient, very friendly staff”
We, family of 3, stayed in a family twin room with 1 queen and 1 twin bed. There was barely any space left in the room with our 3 suit cases. Since the location was great, close to everywhere we wanted to visit, we liked the hotel until we got to know another hotel in Myong dong where the room was much bigger with slightly higher in price. Staff was very polite and friendly though.

Elevator”
I had to wait at least three minutes each time when I used the elevator. It seems that my expectations were too high because it is more expensive than other hotels. But I could not find any other reason to stay there. I recommend this hotel to those who like the fency design .

Great Hotel”
Shilla Stay Gwanghwamun is a lovely hotel. It's in a great location (right next to Gwanghwamun Square, Gyeongbok Palace, and more), the rooms are clean and quickly prepared, the staff are friendly and helpful (and speak English), and the morning breakfast has a great selection. Definitely recommended.

Excellent for long weekend escape”
Convenient location - metro within 5 minutes walk; Restaurants within walking distance (1 minute to 10 minutes); Terrific value for money, the room is nice designed and clean, though a bit small. As in Korea, most taxi drivers are above 50 years ago and don't understand English well. They sometimes find it difficult to locate the hotel.

Great hotel but too warm”
Beautiful design and location. Walking distance to two train stations and plenty of food around. Cleanliness is not great. Wifi is stable and fast. Staff get the job done but look like they rather be somewhere else. They only speak the necessary. Facilities are sufficient. I like my rooms too warm rather than too cold so this is good for me. But I'd say this is uncomfortably warm for most people, even in summer right now when they have all the airconditioning on.

No air conditioning option”
The room was very small. It was very warm in the room and was told by the front desk that the air conditioner cannot be used, only the fan. Even opening all the windows all day and night did not make us any cooler.

Decent hotel with flaws”
The location is decent (but not great). You have to wait a very long time to get into the elevator, and the shower area floods every time because of its strange layout. However, things were super clean and the staffs were very professional and friendly. I would stay again if I am in the area for a business trip.

Quiet, convenient location. Close to Insadong, Samcheongdong & a few subway stations. Staff were professional & responsive. Perhaps a little understaffed such that a couple of services had to be self managed, i.e. laundry had to be brought to & collected from the concierge.

It was a pleasant stay. Great food nearby and we were situated at the heart of Seoul where the Gyeongbok Palace, Gwanghwamun, Insadong, Myeong Dong, basically prime tourist spots were all a walking distance away. Clean rooms with great service. Would stay there the next time we travel again.

1 at first, check in that nite reception front desk look like not welcoming but the next day other ships reception front desk are warmer then check in that shifts staff ! 2. Hotel or Agoda mark this hotel were 5star hotel, as what I’m not agreed with that due to the rooms look like budget hotel kind of small , Also toiletries teeth brushing cup are paper cup rape with plastic outside its look un clean or imaging very low 3. The best value of this hotel will be location are convenient as well as the room it’s very small but clean and comfortable mattress and warm light can have a very good atmosphere!
