    Amazing hotel!”

    The hotel is beautiful and the staff friendly. It’s absolutely perfect! The only thing that I had a problem with was the bed was too hard. It’s was a little uncomfortable. I would still recommend this hotel as a great place to stay in Seoul.

    Schnazzy”

    My friend and I booked this hotel for our Writer’s retreat, wanting a little getaway even though both of us live in Seoul. Felt nice and posh for a couple of poor English teachers, and the price was much better than other similar sites we looked at. Only the cafe downstairs was beyond our price range—like 10-15 for a non-alcoholic drink. Fantastic lobby downstairs. Pretty good location but a bit of a jaunt to the subway station if you’re on foot. Not too bad just not super convenient. There’s a Starbucks nearby and you’re not far from the action of Gangnam or Itaewon. Would definitely stay again.

    skip the breakfast buffet ”

    This is the 10th time I've stayed here and it met expectations as usual. Mike Chung at the front desk was a superstar. He not only was helpful and professional, but also helped us change rooms quickly and painlessly when ours was unsatisfactory. The breakfast buffet used to be exceptional, but I felt it was lacking this time around. Thefood was mediocre and the staff was unpleasant. All in all I'd recommend the Imperial Palace, but I may stay away from the breakfast. And if you are looking for a great staff member who speaks English very well please look for Mike Chung at the front desk.

    great hotel”

    comfortable

    Stayed at the Imperial palace for the few time however this time we decided to stay in a Spa Suite. Although the room had no view and was on the third floor it was beautifully furnished and after being in the room for 30 minutes we were totally relaxed. Even the corridor to the room was spectacular, embedded wood, warm soft light and very quiet. It was a nice contrast to the rest of the hotel and a very different experience. We also had full use of the club lounge on the 20th floor which has great views and the breakfast has improved substancially. The only feedback i would offer regarding this hotel is about the Bacon! For a country with so many pork restaurants the bacon is awful. The quality of food at the Imperial Palace has always been great.......except for the bacon... I will stay in this hotel again, the staff are excellent and the rooms we have stayed in have been beautiful.

    Luxury hotel in the middle of new downtown.”

    It has a great facilities like a spa, several restaurants, bars, and a fitness club.

    it is located in the new downtown area, south part of seoul close to the coex convention center. as a 5 star hotel, it has all the amenities with a top notch service. we stayed in the executive level so the breakfast, internet service in the room, and the fitness club entrance were included otherwise everything you purchase is really expensive. glass of orange juice at the lobby was about $20. also, they charge extra for the outdoor swimming pool usage and the indoor pool is in the fitness club which is separate from the room charge. my daughter who is 10 years old couldn't enter the executive lounge and the fitness club even for the swimming because you have to be 18 years or older. overall, it is a beautiful and luxurious hotel suitable for business travelers or couples.

    Very well-appointed, modern hotel. The size and quality of my room exceeded my expectations, All the staff were very attentive and polite. The swimming pool and free wi-fi were great. All hotels should have free wi-fi in this day and age but you'd be surprised how many Bangkok hotels still charge ridiculous rates! So I was glad this hotel was up to speed. I didn't like the breakfast much, which was cold most mornings.

The service of hotel is really nice. The request that i asked such as check in early arount 10.00 a.m. and check out late at 2 p.m., I got everything that i have asked. The location of the hotel very convenience, the airport bus stop in front of the hotel and the hotel is in good area and near shopping place. The overall of the service i'm still happy on it.
