Nice Hotel in Seoul”
I traveled with my mom. We stayed 6 nights at Somerset Palace Seoul. The location is the best. Surely, I will recommend the hotel to my friends. The room is big, nice bed, sofa and full of hotel amenities with a little kitchen. All I want the hotel to improve is the cleanliness in hotel room. I found a little cup of yogurt under the sofa and also some M&M chocolates. Breakfast is just OK but you can find many good restaurants around the hotel. I will definitely come back to the hotel again.

Excellent value hotel but Construction site nearby”
I stayed for Samcheongdong and the palace visit. It has great location for Sejong food market and Tongin open market as well as boutique shops and restaurants at Samcheong and Bukchon area. Its gym has TechnoGym equipment at 2nd floor. The breakfast was not complete.as 5 star hotel but full of customers giving me impression of good neighbors having meal together.

I love this place”
Size of room, breakfast, location
I love going to this hotel. Not too far from Anguk station, close to Saejon Place and Insadong, the room is large and very comfortable, equiped with fridge and washing machines.The only minus point is that I could never have the dryer machine return my cloth dry ! Efficient staff vry bilingual, the roof floor with the pool and spa is quite nice, even for working.

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suite rooms, which was ideal for our family. The toddler play area was a nice touch. Breakfast choice was great. Located a 5 min walk to the entrance of the Palace and 10 mins from Insadogn, this hotel is great for sightseeing.

a place for 2 families ”
for the location - i like it because we need to walk a distance to each venue // we like to walk and explore so walking is really works for us for Room - i like the layout as it is a reflective mirror layout type & it is big enough for 2 families with Kids running around ..expecially toddler Minus - the towels is very rough and hard to use. it is painful when we used it. end up we went to buy a new set to use it during the stay the staff - if you are lucky you met the nice crew if not the tasty really - bad - first they dont simile + they dont look at you when they speak. so it make hard for us to hear what are they replying. when you say , pardon me , i cant hear you. they look up and Big eyes and replied you with a very firm and stern tone.

refurbishment soon needed”
The whole environment seems to require refurbishment - the air conditioner was such an old model that creates disturbing massive noise all the time while not being able to create a comfortable environment (it did cool down the room after keeping it on for a long while). The bedroom requires a separate cooling system - the cold air does not reach the bedroom if it is turned on the low strength.

Time For a Revamp”
This place has ALL the old stuff if you are into Retro Very old place. All furnitures and fittings looks like my Grandma house. Ascott is an international brand but the in room has no English translation eg usage of washing machine. And no biget for the toilet. The common corridor is so stuffy. Wonder where the ventilation is. Pity the housekeepers having to work in this poor environment esp when the day is sooo hot. Overall. I will not go back again unless it’s revamp. Many other choices around the area.

Somerset Palace Seoul is what my friends call my "Second Home". The location is great, being close to places of interest and it is only a 5 mins walk away from the subway. The breakfast spread is good and the service of the staff is simply awesome! Rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. Thumbs up!!!

We liked everything about the hotel - the staff are friendly and helpful, the apartment spacious, comfortable and very clean, the breakfast offered plenty of different options and the location couldn't have been better for us. We hope to visit Seoul again and would certainly stop here again when we do.
