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”
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”
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.
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”
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.
Sheraton Seoul Palace Hotel is located in very good area for connecting everywhere in Seoul via public transport, it is very close to subway station, express bus terminal and also airport bus stop. Their staffs also have great service-mind. If you love running, it is around 10 minutes walk to Banpo Hangang Park that offers incredible view of Han River.
One of the best hotels in Seoul”
Given that the Seoul Palace is one of the best hotels in Seoul, I must say that the staff highly contributed on being as such. The hotel staff most especially the front desk and concierge offer beyond excellence service to their guests.
i stayed this hotel 3 days 4 nights. the hotel is close to express bus terminal station but need to walk 5-10 minutes outside from the station. it is good location to enjoy shopping, easy to get to gangnam, dongdaemun and myeongdong by subway. also, there is french street around the hotel, it is good to enjoy wine, cafe and sweets. i like this hotel, the room is very comfortable and the service is excellent but the shower was weak it is only one my complaint.
Luxurious stay in Gangnam”
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.
It's Business Trip”
I enjoyed stay at Sheraton Seoul Palacae Gangnam Hotel, room are comfy and clean, good location near the shopping area. Overall, had a pleasant stay.
Greatvalue that i wouldn't expect to last long”
The Palace touta itself as the first hotel in Seoul's Gangnam district and has recently made efforts, through vast renovation, to back up its legacy.
This place is absolutely great (despite the pool staff)”
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.
i had a wonderfull stay at this hotel. i think is a perfect stay for anyone traveling thru and needs to take a break. after a long days work and many traveling hours i found this hotel to be bothe soothing and invigorating. if you are visiting seoul and after the days travel either in bussiness or in pleasure i recommend you chooce this hotel for a very comforting and relaxing experience in order to gather your strenghts for the next days activities. i definately would stay in this hotale again in the near future...
Good hotel for business travellers”
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!
They taking a very good care of us 4people, 2nights. Very good in co-operate. And providing information for travelling around the hotel. And also help us checked the opened-closed time of the shop we want to go. Very impressed every staffs of the hotel. I will come back here for sure if want to stay in gangnam area.
Excellent as usual”
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.
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.
Incredible very pleasant luxury hotel”
Enjoy it, we'll definitely return here our next trip to Seoul provided we get the same rate. Thank you Seoul Palace.
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.
