i stayed at the grand hyatt in seoul and loved it there. let me start off by saying that the location is fantastic; right in the centre of seoul, where travelling is very easy, since taxis are extremely cheap, and bus routs are easily understood. the staff are all very kind and you can definately tell that they really care about your wellbeing. the rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. also, the hyatt has many wonderful facilities, such as a pool in the summer, an ice rink in the winter, a spa, a fitness centre etc. the food was simply exquisit, and a wide variety, from western, to european, to korean. all in all, my stay at the grand hyatt was short and sweet. i reccomend this hotel to anyone who travels in seoul

Excellent hotel with good facilities”

Excellent service, restaurants and bars, at the Grand Hyatt Seoul - but slightly small rooms

Excellent service level throughout the hotel. Seoul can be difficult to get around especially in the winter but the Grand Hyatt has such a variety of dining choices you can do most of your business entertaining in the hotel. JJ's and the Paris Bar are both fun venues, JJs is loud and big, with a band, the Paris Bar is smaller and more intimate. The service staff at the Paris Bar are particularly good. The rooms at the Grand Hyatt are a little on the small side but they are adequate. The service overall is excellent, within Seoul the only hotel with better service is the the Shilla. Only downside - I got a cheap rate on Agoda and then was unable to het any credit for the nights on my Hyatt Card.

Fantastic hotel in a great location”

Location, hotel decor, cleanliness of rooms, hotel staff

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hyatt in Seoul. The location was excellent as it is situated centrally and the staff was well-informed and very courteous. The rooms were well appointed, clean and the views were very nice. The restaurants are quite nice with a wide selection of menus to choose from. You are also a short cab or shuttle bus ride away from Itaewon which offers a plethora of food styles to choose from. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.

A true 5* hotel (with a few minor quibbles) ”

Room views, breakfast, staff, gym

Our stay at the Gran Hyatt Seoul was really enjoyable. Although the location is a bit strange, most central places in Seoul are within a bus ride reach. In addition, being where it is, the hotel commands amazing views of both downtown Seoul and the Namsan mountain and tower. The breakfast buffet at the "Terrace" was simply amazing, with all kinds of food to choose from (try the smoothies!). The hospitality, politeness, and eagerness to help from the hotel staff was also something that impressed us. All in all a very nice stay! Two small quibbles: the rooms (at least the non-club ones) are fairly small and a bit cluttered with furniture. However, they make up for it with stunning views. Also, although a bath-tub was advertised, we didn't have any in our room, just a shower-cabin. The second quibble is about the prices. Prepare to pay good money for any additional service you might need (ie, sauna, spa, room service, in-house restaurants and cafes). As an example, a bottle of water in the gym (granted it was Evian but still...) costed a bit shy of 10 dollars. That is pretty ridiculous.

Still my fav hotel chain”

Nothing to worry about when you're checking into the Grand Hyatt. Similar experience in Taipei. The rooms are well designed with a modern interior. The lounge area at the entrance offers a perfect view with live jazz and lounge music. Gym, pool, spa, ... everything is available at your convenience. It's close to Itaewon, a bustling area full of nightlife, shops, restaurants, but it does take a bit of a walk. I would definitely book this hotel again. One point of improvement: the walls were fairly thin allowing the guest to hear what's going on in the hallway and in other rooms.

Grand Hyatt Seoul is Truly Grand ”

Staying on club memeber floor gave us access to club lounge which meant free drinks and food all day long. Best part about staying here is the 360 degrees birdseye of Seoul.
The room we got wasn't exactly 5 star level.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and there is a reason we come back to this hotel. First of all we live in Seoul but every once in a while when we feel the need to just go some where to relax for few days we always goback to the Grand Hyatt Seoul. We always reserve club floor which gives us access to their lounge all day long for drinks and food. Best part of staying at this hotel has to 360 degrees of unobstructed view of Seoul. Staff at this hotel are courteous are more than willing to help. If you stay here go try the Terrace restaurent for buffett dinner. One thing for sure like all other high end hotels they are about milikng you for everything you got so check before you use any of their service. Finally I got an excellent rate by booking through Agoda. The daily rate was definately cheaper than booking through Hyatt website. Have fun and just relax and enjoyed the view.

The rooms are well kept and with a great view. The only down-side is that it does not have any traditional Korean restaurants at walking distance.

View, hotel lobby, standing

Grand Hyatt Seoul 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.

The New Year's Eve pound cake wss missing”

I am regular to hyatt seoul for the last 15 years for several reasons, so i could check almost every single point of the hotel. Generally i have been satisfied with the service which the hotel has been selling, but the for the past a few years, i was bothered by annoying attitudes of under trained temp staff or visitors who were just looking at other customers and hotel guests. They kept looking other guests who were swimming or eating at the restaurant. Those who may be the novice to after hotel check in seem to know some hotel crew there since i could witness that they were sharing chatting over food. If the hotel has been spreading around some sales promotion tickets throung travel agencies, i wish they would stop doing that for the season finale. The fireworks show was awesome hooker but the marketing and sales promotion was loser. The hotel management crew show more respect guests who pay real cash. That is the petty. Since my daughter loved the pound cake that she could see on the table of the new year's eve, we were a bit dissapointed at the missing of it. Anyway, the new table needed some welcome singnature. General service, food, cleaning up comditions and attendants' hospitality are good but i really want to point out the irresponsible marketing, sales and management of HR. Definitely, however, i will visit and use the hotel lobby again for several reasons.

I was up-sold a club level room upon check in. I like an up-sell so I took it, but was too busy with work meetings to make use of the club facilities. I had a late night departure flight so asked as I was checking out (at 9am) if I would be able to use the shower/gym or facilities later in the late afternoon when I was done with all my meetings but waiting to leave for the airport (9pm) and got a robotic "no club benefits are allowed to be used after check out". It disappointing and definitely not what I would expect from a 5-star international hotel brand - way to make sure I stay loyal to SPG from now on Grand Hyatt!

The clerks in the executive lounge went above and beyond by offering me an alternative room for early check-in until the room I reserved was ready. Breakfast was amazing and the design of the room was breath taking. The shuttle from the hotel to itaewon and meyongdong were lifesavers as well as the very affordable bus shuttle to the airport.
