    The best it can ever be!”

    Service of staff is exceptional and goes out of their way to satisfy your needs. All staff speaks English. The room is comfortable and sparkling clean with cleaning twice daily. The teabags given were from TWG and toiletries from Molten Brown. Didn't know they provide fetching service when we arrive and had a hard time pushing our luggages up the slope but when we leave they offered to fetch us to the shuttle bus waiting point, with the staff by our side. Price is high but they make every cent worth!

    Best hotel ever. ”

    I've stayed at top notch hotels worldwide but this one is tops for me. Well laid out rooms, with view, outstanding service staff who are courteous and knowledgeable. Hotel has system on place for all front office greeters to know so your are upon arrival. Executive privileges are substantial and good quality. Food, lounge, drinks, service and spa. While it's set in a park, it is rather far from key shopping areas.

    Wonderfully appointed hotel owned by the Samsung family. The hotel is clearly passionate about service, and aims to deliver the very highest service standards. We were very impressed with the Housekeeping service, which went beyond our expectations.

    A good hotel with a few big caveats”

    Of course this is a good hotel with impeccable if sometimes slightly arrogant service. However, upon our arrival the hotel didn’t have our reservation and insisted it got cancelled. As their reservation department was closed Sunday morning we got stranded for three hours waiting after a long flight. Despite us staying 12 days we weren’t offered an early check-in. When they finally managed to find our pre-paid Agoda reservation no excuse was given - it was just a ‘system error’. The Shilla is huge and an institution. So much that it gets extremely busy with conventions, events and locals - especially on weekends. On several occasions we couldn’t get any seating with our business partners in the relatively small public areas, coffeehouse and bar. The hotel because of its isolated location and limited access is also prone to traffic jams which makes getting in and out of the hotel very inconvenient and time consuming. When big wigs are staying in the hotel the police blocks off the access completely and you get stranded which happened to us twice during our stay. Not good if you’re on business... The location of the hotel is central but away from it all and there are no worthy restaurant options in walking distance. The food at the hotel is excellent but vastly overpriced and its four restaurants are regularly booked out. This is a favourite place for Korean weddings and seemingly a must visit once in your life place for every Korean hence the hotel gets flooded on weekends and it takes patience to get to one’s room given there are only four elevators. Anyway, despite some great staff and an excellent bed we wouldn’t stay there again.

    Superb Hotel with exceptional staff”

    I have stayed in many Hotels around the world but I rank The Shilla, Seoul as my personal favourite. The location and Views are fantastic, with the Metro a 3 minute walk away. I have stayed on the club floor on both occasions and the Food and Beverage offered here is mind-blowingly good. I have never experienced such high quality food being offered on a club floor anywhere. The staff are immaculately groomed, totally professional and always willing to help. Simply a fantastic hotel.

    DO NOT do your laundry there.”

    Honestly, the hotel itself is great. The staff are amazing. Breakfast buffet is among the best I’ve had. My one and only gripe is the extortionist laundry pricing. $23 AUD to wash a single pair of underwear.! The norm even at other 5 star hotels is about one tenth of that.

    Be advised, they charge you to use the outdoor pool. You can use the indoor pool but they only have 3 lanes. (One lane is exclusively for fitness club members.. ) Which makes the remaining 2 lanes freaking crowded. The restaurant was the best part of the visit. Pleasant with good vives and great food. I would recommend this place if you're travelling alone. However if you're planning to visit the place with kids, I would recomment you to look for other hotels which has more facilities.

    Lunch at hotel restaurant La Yeon”

    Had lunch at hoteI's restaurant La Yeon upon arrival prior to checkin. Everything was good except waitress forgot my Sinseollo order and came out after extended wait period after all mains have finished. I didn't really appreciate the attitude of the person receiving our orders as she acted as if nothing was wrong but clearly the order was forgotten. No apologies from the restaurant. The hotel was good however.
