          Good business hotel”

          This was my first visit to the Seoul Palace and I was pretty pleased with the overall experience. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, although I found the traffic noise from the highway outside to be a little disturbing. The breakfast was very good, if a little pricy (like all hotels in Seoul). The pool was a good size. If I'm honest, I found the location to be a little out of the way from where I needed to be for business at the COEX exhibition centre and meetings around Gangnam station. Be aware that although the hotel is next to the Express Bus Station subway, some of the walking transfer times are quite long, turning a 2-stop ride to Gangnam station into a 30-40 minute journey. A taxi to COEX took between 20-30 mins depending on the traffic. On the plus side, the hotel is a short walk from a lovely low rise area featuring some excellent bars and restaurants.

          Great hotel but more of a business hotel”

          comfortable room, convenient location,

          the room was spotless and very comfortable but for the price, it was expected. we got the executive hot deal which included breakfast (pretty basic but good enough for me), happy hour (beer, juice, and few snacks), and afternoon snack (juices and fruits)...so for all that being included in the price, i thought it was a good deal. the location near express terminal is convenient for traveling outside of seoul. however for some nightlife, you'll have to travel few stations on the subway. but a good choice for a business hotel.

          Great location in Gangnam”

          Location, service and neighborhood

          We have made the Seoul Palace our main choice when staying in Seoul. The location is the main draw. The hotel is just off the Olympic Highway from the airport and also near Highway 1, the Seoul-to-Busan expressway. Garage parking is easy and free. To the north and east is Center City, a large shopping complex adjacent to the intercity bus terminal and containing three subway stations. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from a hiking trail that runs for several kilometers through a succession of parks and other open spaces. The entrance to the trail is by the pedestrian overpass from Center City. The hotel is also just east of an upscale but pedestrian-friendly Seoul neighborhood with a large expatriate community. The executive rooms at the Seoul Palace are the best value. The regular room charges are lower but one pays extra for daily internet (12,000 won), breakfast (35,000 won) and the sauna/gym. The breakfast buffet is very good, and the evening wine bar has enough food to serve as dinner. The hotel service is efficient and low key. We had two minor glitches during our stay, a billing issue and a blocked toilet. Both were fixed immediately and courteously.

          1) Reasonable price with good location and stuff 2) Good breakfast 3) The room was better than I expected - I heard it was a bit old hotel

          Great hotel with very good price. I heard that it was an old hotel but I assume it was remodeled recently and it was good. Especially compared with the 5-star rated franchised hotel right next to Seoul Palace, it was half-the price but the service was almost similar.

          The Staff Were Very Professional”

          The bathroom was great, the room design was fantastic, the staff was exceptionally professional

          I was a little testy when I arrived. I used the Agoda secret deal to book the room, so I received a good price for the room, but I was concerned that I might get raked for all of the "amenities" in order for them to make up some of the difference. In my opinion, at a 5 star hotel, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, comb, and water should automatically be complimentary. That is not the case in some cases, so when I asked, after a long bus ride, and after they wanted my card for "incidentals", I was a little bitchy, but the staff was exceptionally patient and very professional, and I appreciate that a great deal. I didn't mean to be bitchy, but when you offer a deal, as a 5 star hotel, then let it be a "DEAL". At first they were going to charge me for toothbrush/toothpaste and the like, but after discussing it, they upgraded me to a room where these things were suddenly free and all that I had to worry about was the mini-bar, as it should be. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

          5-star quality, convenient location, and relaxing

          I was upgraded to executive room and had an access to special breakfast served on the floor, which was quite relaxing. Although it seemed the entire hotel was under construction and had some noise, hotel staff arranged all the requests that I had, such as providing me with some boxes to mail something, and giving me a separate bill. Very convenient location as the major train station is within walking distance and it is not as crowded and noisy as Shinsa or Myeon-dong. I would definitely stay at this hotel if I have a chance to visit Seoul again.

          For the money you are paying in Seoul, this is an absolutely fantastic hotel. It is in a great location for me, and it has become like a home away from home. The staff (aside from the pool staff) is always professional, courteous, and extremely helpful. They are the best thing about staying at this hotel. It isn't 100% perfect, but for the money? It's as close as you can get. They called to make sure I picked up breakfast coupons I didn't even know I had! I am happy to be able to stay there when I come to Seoul.

          The location

          The hotel staffs were very helpful. Prior to arrival, we've mistakenly made double booking. But with the help of the hotel staff, we were allowed to cancel one of the booking even though the condition says that cancellation will cost 1 night stay charges. Apart from that, the room were lovely and the facilities were excellent. We will definately choose this hotel if were to visit Seoul again!

          Excellent as usual”

          Comfort, location, staff

          My first pick when I am travelling to Seoul for business. The hotel is actually conveniently located and it takes less time than for many hotels to get there from Incheon airport. It is also possible to reach a lot of important HQ and office buildings within 15mn when avoiding peak hours. Rooms are quite large with comfortable bathrooms. Quiet hotel despite ongoing renovation. 10 mn walk to the "French Quarter" of Seoul, with numerous restaurants, bars, izakayas... The only negative point is the service when ordering "à la carte" at the hotel's restaurant: it takes forever to get your dishes.

          Best valued hotel”

          Whenever I come to Seoul, I stay in this hotel! Value, staff service, features, location all excellent. I've been told that the hotel will be a Sheraton hotel soon and hope to maintain same price and service.

          Great hotel”

          Clean and spacious

          Found a superb deal on Agoda for the executive rooms. The hotel has a direct bus from the airport so that is a plus. The rooms look like they've been recently renovated so it's new and clean. The hotel staff are very friendly too. Tried the lunch buffet and the food was pretty good. The only downside is that public transport is pretty far away. IT is walkable but with such cold winter weather, we just ended up taking a cab from the hotel. Which reminds me, the traffic around the hotel gets pretty bad as it's a major junction.

          Sheraton hotel?”

          The Seoul Palace hotel hasn't changed much since I've been coming 5 years ago. The exterior is a tiny bit better. The Breakfast hasn't improve. For a Sheraton name, I expect better.
