    This is my second time stay in somerest palace Seoul. At night this is not going to be loud or anything much to see or eat. Just a mart for basic stuff. If you like to walk and check out this area - palace walking - this is the area to explore. We love to walk and explore. So it work for us. Room- the space is good and big enough for us to pack and space to have chit chat moment and yet it has own privacy space. Good with family

    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.

    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.

    Great location”

    Ideal location for sightseeing, shopping & eating

    We've stayed here before. Apartments are a good size with reasonably well equipped kitchen & ideal location for sightseeing etc. Good value. Only complaint is that we paid for apartment with breakfast included but no breakfast was provided on morning of lunar New Year. The hotel did deliver some boxed sandwiches etc to the room but couldn't accommodate us as vegetarians, which was disappointing. Would like to see Agoda ensuring better accuracy in their advertising in future.

    Location, good choice of restaurants nearby, helpful staff

    Enjoyed our weekend break here. Apartment was clean and comfortable. Great beds! Ensuite bathroom a bit dated. Do these serviced apartment places really need to provide such awful detergent by way of soap & shampoo? Given the price paid I would expect something a little better. Breakfast was okay, but would have preferred some fresh fruit. And how about some fresh pastries?

    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.

    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.
