Best choice among biz hotels in Korea”
Third time staying at Shilla Stay Seodaemun and always satisfying.. Room is clean, modern, and they provide Aveda amenities!! And there is a gym, not spacious but equipped with minimal facilities and decent enough considering the budget. Staff are always nice and helpful, definitely will stay again whenever visiting Seoul.
Great Stay, Convenient Location”
Shilla stay provided an excellent location if you're planning to explore Seoul. The hotel is right at the exit of the station and the Train is direct to Dongdaemun Design Plaza station which is right where DDM is. This is also the transition station to MyeongDong. From shilla stay to Myeong dong or Hongdae will take you no longer than 15mins and you can be right at where you can eat and shop to your hearts content! The hotel is also very clean with all the amenities you need . The staff is also very friendly and helpful and i can guarantee you'll enjoy staying there. The only downside to it is that though there are numerous convenience stores around, they are relatively small and have limited items. Not many food choices or places as well if you wanted to grab a bite nearby.
New, Clean, Standard”
hotel is new, facilities are new, clean. location is good, right next to subway but subway line 5 requires a lot of transit to other attractions in downtown and no elevator at the subway exit. good bus routes at door step. room is small but good enough for two 26-in luggage. only got one mirror in the bathroom, girls travel together must bring extra mirror for daily make up. Overall, good price for a low-end Shilla level, if not Seodaemun, would try another branch as well.
Everything is quite convenient”
Due to the flight change we called agoda service hotline and received a very perfect service. The hotel is at the exit No.7/8 of Seodaemun metro station. It takes only 10 - 15 minutes to Seoul Railway Station and 40-45 minutes to Gimpo Int'l Airport. Our room is located on 15th floor but taking a elevator does not need too much time. While the socket beside the bed does not work well so we have to use an adaptor to transfer. Finally, this hotel is worth the price.
Convenient Location , Great stay”
Enjoyed my time at the stay with Shilla, location is super convenient for families, friends or any travelers looking to explore the Seoul area of Korea. Being minutes away from numerous places such as DDM, Myeong Dong and Hongdae (all within 15mins) has made traveling to and fro such a ease. Not forgetting the proximity of the hotel to the train station makes it so much more tolerable after a long day traveling around. However the cleanliness could have been slightly better as the bedsheets and pillow cases were re-used through the long stay i had. Would have understood if they change every 2-3 days but there wasnt a single change throughout my 8/9days of stay there. If not, super pleasant stay with great location. Could not ask for more.
Best Biz Hotel ”
Shilla Stay is super awesome in every way. The room is always managed clean, and their modern interior is also impressive. Aveda amenity is provided, that was another good point. There is small but decent gym, and restaurant with reasonable price. Staff were also kind and professional, always eager to help. Strongly recommend and always will use Shilla Stay if possible in other areas too.
Location of the hotel is perfect. No complaints about it. They provide aveda amenities, which is one of my favorite brand. As for the staff I gave them 4/5 stars. Reason being, none of them assist me with my 2 luggages during check-in & check-out. And they didn't offer to help me book a taxi. I had stayed in many other hotels as a soloist and all the staff will asked if I require a taxi to airport upon my check-out. But these were the services missing from the staff in shilla stay. But for the price I think it's fine (:
Modern, clean, neat. Classy & cozy interiors.Aesthetically pleasing. Staff were very helpful&fluent”
Modern, neat, clean and cozy. Best value for money in Seoul. Staff always went the extra mile to assist tourists. Staff were pleasant, easy to converse with. Right infront of Seodaemun station (10 second walk). Very accessible. Well curated - complete quality in-room complimentary items were provided. Overall, we pleasantly enjoyed our stay here, will definitely come back and will recommend to peers.
My 2nd stay at this hotel. Lovely hotel with easy access to the subway system. Easily navigated my way around Seoul from Seodaemun station. Lots of good alley restaurants around the hotel as well - my favourite was Seodamoonjip at 29 Chungjeong-ro 6an-gil, right behind the hotel. Staff was very helpful too - they helped to make reservations at the restaurants which only spoke Korean. Will definitely stay again at this hotel.
Great stay - Frequent traveller to Seoul, and picky”
Frequent traveller to Seoul. Staff was very friend and accommodating, as they've just opened about a year ago. One criticism is when I asked about nearby laundry/dry cleaners, as the rates at hotel are expensive and I can speak Korean. They said none were nearby, however there was one about 30m away, around the corner... come on. However, they allowed me to check-in VERY early ahead of the normal check-in time, and service was otherwise top end in my extensive experience staying at hotels in Korea. Room was very small, and odd that if you slide closed the bedroom separating door (never did) there was a window from the bedroom directly into the shower. However, the room/bathroom were all very modern and well kept. No complaints other than size, and as many other business hotels in Seoul there was free WiFi. Not much of a lobby meeting area which meant there was quite often large groups of people hanging around and a bit crowded. Transportation ok - Seodaemun Stn just out front but a bit of a walk my Seoul standards until you hit the train platform. Not bad but not great for grabbing taxis as you need to grab from the corner of the big intersection. Coffee shops nearby, convenience stores nearby, food selection close by is ok, and typical of north of the river areas.
Its was a pleasant stay! Would definitely comeback for my next visit to Korea!”
Even though its was my first solo trip but everything was smooth. They have a straight bus from Incheon International Airport (6002) and it alighted at Seodaemun station right in front of the hotel. So you dont have to navigate that much. Seodaemun train station exit 7/8 is also right outside the hotel and its only 20/25 mins to Myeongdong and Itaewon. Checkin process was smooth. Room ready when I arrived. The room was comfy and the staff was friendly and they speaks english well.
Shilla Stay ”
Staff are very friendly and attentive to our request, especially the concierge staff Brad. We forgot to state that we would like to have a room with bath tub in our booking, and Brad helped us changed room upon availability as the hotel was fully booked on our day of arrival. He also gave us really good recommendation on the food to have around the hotel when we just arrived and wanted some food nearby. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay with the hotel. Hotel is really near Seodaemun station exit 7 & 8. (Taking either exit is fine as both exit are really near each other and the hotel is between those 2 exits).
Strategic Location infront of MRT ”
We had a great 3 nights stay at Shilla Stay Seodaemun. Room is clean albeit a little small. Location is fantastic just infront of the MRT station.
Perfect hotel right on the 5 line”
This hotel was great. Nice and comfortable bed compared to most places in Korea that are rock hard. The hotel is right on the 5 line so direct subway to gimpo airport. Just take exit 7 or 8 and you’ll be outside the hotel at the Seodaemun train station. Also and close to Seoul station if taking the train to Busan or coming in from there.
Excellent service, accomodating staffs, accesible location, definitely worth every penny.”
We stayed for a week. The staffs are very accommodating, they even informed us that they can help us if we wish to order food for delivery. The location is right outside of Seodaemun Station either you exit on Exit 7 or 8. There are a few restaurants within the area, as well as convenient stores. Also, if you didn't have adaptors with you, the staffs can provide this as well. They even have an extension cord inside the room so you can maximize the available plugs to charge your gadgets and all. The only mishap we experienced was the air conditioner that is stuck within 26-28 which is quite warm for us, we called the staffs but the AC wasn't checked even after 3 days and 2 calls. Setting that concern aside, will still stay here again if we will be back in South Korea as we are very satisfied with everything.
I had stayed at Shilla Stay Seodaemun for couple of times already and were welcomed by very friendly and helpful front desk staff. The location is great and easy for taxi getoffs. Very comfortable bed and pillows. However, the last time when I stayed was quite disappointing as the room was not clean enough and worn out : wallpapers peeling off, visible stains on wall, dusty floor and dirty underbed. Room was still dim and dark, lightings and plugs not working properly. Would be considering a revisit when maintenance is improved.
Convenient location in the heart of Seoul”
Located right outside Seodaemun Train Station exit. Convenient location with direct buses to many parts of Seoul such as City Hall, Digital Media City, Dongdaemun, Myeongdong and more.
The hotel staff are super nice. ”
Pro is nx to seodaemun station,good location, 5minutes to Seoul station. Cons is centralised air-conditioning used in rooms in Sept , we felt v hot which is 28 degree , couldn't sleep. Complaint few times, yet to resolve. We use fans in d room.
Modern, clean and convenient”
The property is modern and clean, with very comfortable beds. Yes, the rooms are a bit small, but it makes up for it through comfort and excellent service. It's also literally right outside the subway station so getting anywhere is extremely easy. Highly recommended - you can't go wrong with this Shilla Stay.
Right outside the seodaemon subway station”
The hotel is just right outside exit 7 of Seodaemun subway station. There is a bus to and from airport in front of the hotel. The room is a little small but amenities are great. The bed is so comfortable, a great place to relax right after long walks from various tourist spots. Hotel staff are very accommodating and speaks good english.
