DO NOT do your laundry there.”
Honestly, the hotel itself is great. The staff are amazing. Breakfast buffet is among the best I’ve had. My one and only gripe is the extortionist laundry pricing. $23 AUD to wash a single pair of underwear.! The norm even at other 5 star hotels is about one tenth of that.

Service elevated”
I never thought we wouldn't need much service during our 5-day stay last week but unexpected things happened. There is an instance when my daughter vomited at the lobby as she felt very dizzy due to indigestion and upset stomach. The security was quick to assure us that they will take care of the cleaning and not to worry about it. She was totally embarrassed for causing such a scene but with the hotel personnels' assurance and willingness to assist, she was comforted. There was also one morning when I needed to check on my mom in her room. When she was not responding for about 10 minutes, I finally asked a staff from housekeeping who happens to pass by for help. She did all the works of informing the security and the reception about my request and quickly opened her door for me. I truly appreciate everything about The Shilla Seoul.

The front-office staff at the hotel were attentive, friendly and spoke great English. I greatly appreciated the help of one of the staff that helped me to call a shopping department to trace the credit card that I left behind at one of the shops! The bedroom was clean, comfy and quiet.

Not worth the price”
Hotel is overcrowded with local during peak seasons and service is compromised as we can't enjoy the hotel facilities i.e. swimming pool and F&B outlets are heavily overcrowded and hotel is very sticky on late checkout policy. Not convenient as you need shuttle bus to go to nearest subway station or airport limousine bus stop

Regular guest at The Shilla”
The Shilla Hotel has always been my number one choice of hotel in Seoul. Architecturally, it's grandeur is hard to beat in Seoul, and the staff are always so friendly and accommodating. They carry themselves with poise and elegance and are always eager to help, from the doorman to the front desk to the room service staff.

Bad service”
Hotel is overpriced. $100 to just use the outdoor pool in top or the $500 you already pay. $20 for a coffee that is poor quality. Baristas need training. Korean members in the sauna abuse you if you decide not to be naked. They do not respect your cultural/religious differences. The staff in the spa also abuse you and don't understand what privacy is. Never have I had an experience like this. I was humiliated and disrespected. Management did nothing about it. This hotel is owned by Samsung. If you're a westerner. Stay away. Poor koreans are being ripped off by this hotel.

Exceptional service, quality and attention to detail”
We travelled in the countryside for several days before staying one night at the legendary The Shilla hotel in Seoul as a final night in Korea, a little treat for ourselves. It did not disappoint and we were pleasantly surprised with the views to Namsan and over the city with the sense of space and beauty. The rooms were elegantly understated but dripped of quality and great thoughtmanship with design and utility. The room was spacious and the window stood out as a piece of moving art with neat thick black borders enhancing the views. We enjoyed the luxurious bath, shower and clever toilet. What turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience, I hope will now mean several more experience in the near future. My tip is to go sightseeing around the markets, but check out the Shilla duty free first as you might want to make your actual purchases onsite. Also, depending on your room rate, access to the swimming pool may not be included (the Swimming pool is awesome throughout the year)

Probbly the best hotel in Seoul”
We initially chose this hotel for the outdoor swimming pool said to be the best in Seoul but hotel charges 100,000 KRW extra to use it. In the end we didn't have much time to try so we skip. It's the first time in my life I ever was asked to pay to use the pool in a 5 stars hotel. Other than that our stay was wonderful. The hotel is fantastic: nice rooms, large bathrooms, great gym facilities, amazing surroundings, yummy breakfast and above all superb staff

We booked this hotel as part of our anniversary holiday and relax after two weeks of travelling around the country. No regrets on booking the Executive as we just wanted to relax on the indoor pool, jacuzzi and the sauna. To add we had access to the Executive lounge where we had free breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. Never thought it was included. The room interior are well designed. With quality toiletries and other stuff. Clean and well maintained.

The Hotel is located conveniently next to Dongduk University subway station being a 3 minute walk. From here you can access many of the areas in Seoul that are worth seeing. The Hotel is fantastic and the staff and very warm and friendly. I recommend staying in a room with executive lounge access as the Food and Beverage offered throughout the day is amazing.

Beautiful Lobby”
Shila Hotel is one of the landmark hotels in the city. Magnificent lobby and view from the rooms, it is clearly a high class standing venue. However I was a bit disappointed by the room. Decoration is getting old and the bathroom is really small and old for that price range and standards. Bath tub is too small to lie down and the room decoration is not relazxing at all. Honestly the bedroom and bathroom are similar to what you can find in a cheaper hotel such as Novotel. The bed quality however was fantastic.
