    I was already at the airport when i realized that i left my valuables in my room’s safe deposit box. When i called the hotel, i was told that my stuff was being safely kept at the front desk waiting for me to pick it up. Thank God for the highspeed train from incheon airport straight to the hotel, i was able to make my flight back home with 5minutes to spare. Whew!!!

    Best location and best place in Seoul”

    I am local. I was born in Seoul and have lived in Seoul for 47years now. I am very picky person who get annoyed easily. This was my first time to visit this hotel but I visited bars there sometimes and always I felt welcoming and the service was always marvelous! I have a plan to stay here new years and I will stay longer at that time. Usually I prefer to stay residence hotel coz of the size of room. But comparing all the restauranta and coffee shop around here, I definately this hotel is the best in Seoul. Thank you all of service team. You are the best! Thank you very much!

    Great location, modern & clean”

    This is the 1st hotel we stayed (out of 3 hotels in Seoul). The size of the room was rather small. It was a Deluxe size, but it's ok since we were out most of the time. The concierge and the Bell Boy were extremely helpful with our itinerary and luggage help. They were very attentive. The gym is located next door. We didn't use it, so can't comment. The steam room/Sauna is also next door and is additional charge, which was a bit disappointing, since it wasn't mentioned while I was booking. Location is great, as it's literally next door from the CityHall metro...and is walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. Overall, we had a pleasant stay. Since i'm writing this review after our stay in 3 hotels, I must say that I do prefer the Lotte Hotel instead of the Plaza. They have a gourmet food court downstairs with free onsen/steam room, sauna access, which makes a huge difference during the winter time if you like to end your day with that.

    I use the Plaza three or four times a year for business trips to Seoul. After trying many other hotels, I have found this one to be the most convenient because of its central location but especially because of the tremendous value for money. The facilities, especially, the fitness centre and pool are excellent and the staff are wonderful. They have proved unfailing helpful. On top of that, the views over the city hall and square and down Sejon-ro are unbeatable.

There is also 2 tourist ship within 5mins walk. Real Korean food within 5mins walk wit Bars and Business Clubs. Street food carts also within 7 mins walk if u wanna try the push carts Korean food. Wifi is average but rent your LG wifi donger at the airport so that u have 24hr access to unlimited internet. If u have the budget, this is the hotet to stay in MyeongDong...

    Room, pool, breakfast

    The Plaza Hotel majestically overlooks the main plaza in Seoul’s central district. The rooms are surprisingly small, but very well equipped and much more modern than the rest of the hotel, having been renovated fairly recently. The gym and pool in the hotel are excellent, as is the breakfast, although the hotel does seem to have a rather high-handed attitude about where guests are allowed to sit – be prepared!

I was travelling with my girlfriend and they were kind enough to upgrade us to the premiere suite when we only booked the deluxe double room. the suite came with an amazing view of the city both in the day and at night. the staff were very attentive to our needs and assisted us in any way possible. I highly recommend this hotel and I would definitely return to stay again. I wouldn't stay at any other hotel after experiencing such a romantic and amazing stay.

    Club lounge is suitable for business traveller, comfortable room, good internet connection

    The only issue with my stay was that my room was right below the club lounge where wooden floor is fitted. Hence,noise of people walking about started quite early in the morning. On one occasion, some mental thing fallen on the ground about 5am in the morning which disturbed my sleep. Overall, happy with my experience.

    Excellent service, near shopping area, easy access to food

    The hotel service is excellence. From the point of checking-in until we check-out, the staff never fail to greet us whenever we passed by. What impressed me is that they even have a counter to guide tourists around Seoul, recommending restaurants and shopping area around the hotel, and any place of interest that you intend to visit. The hotel printed their own version of Seoul map (with sub maps for common place of interest like Myeong-dong) for the use of its guests, lots of useful stuff in the map itself. Its rooms are technology savvy and clean with nice design. Easy access to airport with their airport shuttle too. The only comment I will make is that the room rates are slightly above the average rates near the hotel.

    Probably the best location in Seoul.”

    Location, staff, personal attention.

    It was very good, we will stay there again. The breakfast buffet is way over priced and not that good, though the egg chef was good. Even ordering a la carte you can't really have breakfast for less than $50, the price of the buffet (per person) I wish hotels would quit putting quilts in duvets on the beds without a top sheet. Gives guests no options. I had to take the duvet apart to sleep comfortably. We didn't like the furniture arrangements. Made the room too crowded.

    excellent hotel. the hotel staff were consistently professional and very helpful in every way. and you can't beat the location! just a 2 minute walk from the central city hall train station which is near to the major sights within seoul. the room size, while small, had a stylish and striking design. the concierge was also outstanding in the way it assisted to help us book the dmz tours, with a handwritten note to inform us of a slight change in pick up time the night before the tour. food options at this hotel were very expensive, but it was located near streets of restaurants and cafes, so that did not form a big issue.

    The 5-star service started right at the entrance of the hotel. We were greeted with beautiful and friendly smiles of the staff despite the freezing weather that late evening. The check in was fast. We were given a room with perfect views and that was the City Hall and palace view. The room was installed with high tech appliances and a master-control pad for the bedroom. The hotel is located not far from the Myeondong night market and it is connected to the underground shopping arcade. Nevertheless, the room is considered small but with the perfect location and service, that can compensate the downside of it.
