Where We Stayed

Our room for two nights was a Deluxe King room in the Main Tower with an area of around 40 square meters in size. The décor was elegant with warm lighting. The private marble bathroom has a spacious shower and a large bathtub and comes with amenities you would expect in a five-star hotel. The room was equipped with a desk, minibar and safe. Loves

Insider Tips  

  • There are so many places to visit in Seoul; we recommend a Pedicab ride tour of Bukchon Hanok Village which is a good experience. We used Artee Pedicabthey are very knowledgeable about the area and help explore hidden alleyways and their stories.  
  • If you are planning to withdraw local cash from ATMs, some of them only have Korean language options. Get help from one of the hotel staff if needed
