"Hi tech meets location"
The location could not be better for a visitor. Right on top of the metro stop (City Hall) and a fantastic underground shopping complex. Interconnected to other landmark hotels too. It is across the street from one of the grand palaces and a complimentary shuttle ride away from the one that is designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site. There is a typical Korean food street steps away bening the hotel. The hotel is ultra high tech way beyond electric curtains. Even using the bathroom is an experience. Oh yes, the Korean Airline airport shuttle delivers you to the front doors and picks you up again. Staff very friendly and helpful. I am glad I chose it.

Everything about this hotel was at least really good, and most things were great. Attentive service, great location (not too far from the hop-on-hop-off tour bus origin and there was a great enclave of "local" restaurants not too far from the hotel) and very nice room. I recommend the club level - not that much more $, but you can use the lap pool, the gym and the evening and morning snacks/meals/drinks were nice!

"Great hotel in a great location in Seoul"
I was very happy with my choice of the Plaza hotel, which is in a great location across from City Hall, Seoul Plaza, in walking distance to Namdaemun, and right next to a subway stop. Just out the back door is an entrance to an underground walk-way/mall, which takes you directly to several locations including the Lotte Dept store. The hotel is well-designed and modern. The rooms are a bit small, but we had a great view of Seoul Plaza. The bathroom was super clean and updated. Wifi was free in the lobby and rooms. My only criticism is that the fitness center is in an adjacent building, though literally a stone's throw through the back door, and free. Perhaps most importantly, the staff was super friendly and helpful. The front desk staff, & much of the Bell staff, spoke English as well. We ran into one of the Bell staff, Peter, outside of the hotel. He was off shift yet super friend and helpful. He proceeded to help us take a bus, which took us on a direct route to visit relatives.

"Best Hotel Experience Ever!"
This hotel's location cannot be better. I have stayed at many hotels that are supposely better and much more expensive than this hotel, but this hotel's excellent and convenient location and the exceptional service provided by hotel staff make The Plaza the best hotel I ever stayed. This will be only hotel we will stay when we are in Seoul.

"In the heart of the City and excellent service"
With only a few days to stay in Seoul while passing through to Mongolia, this was the perfect hotel for a few reasons: the location was central and on the 6701 bus stop, which takes about 70 minutes from the airport. The service was great, from the front desk to the bellhops. Lastly, the rooms were very modern and clean, not to mention extremely comfortable. Free wi-fi too....although this is to be expected anywhere in Seoul

"Location, location, location (and nice room)."
Loved being within short walking distance of Myeong-dong shopping district, a gazillion restaurants, and enough subway stops to get pretty much anywhere in Seoul. Hotel is also connected to an extensive underground shopping arcade which would let you get really far without ever having to go outside (the weather was nice when I was there, but this would be a great help if it were cold/raining). Hotel room was very nice - had all modern conveniences and was very comfortable. Tip: If you go out the back exit to the hotel and keep headed in that direction, a short distance away are a bunch of street carts where vendors grill seafood and serve drinks -- very fun!

"Awesome Hotel, Awesome Location"
Amazing hotel with crazy good locatoin. Walking distance to all the major sights. If you dont like noise, this hotel might not be the best choice as it is located on Seoul Square where many MANY concerts and events are held. On my 3 night stay there were 2 events in the square. The events tend to end around 9pm so it never bothered me.

Beautiful hotel with nice clean rooms. Very modern appeal.

Hotel staff was polite, attentive, and went out of their way to be helpful. Overall, this was a wonderful experience!

A great stay for a last minute trip to Seoul. Conveniently on an airport limo bus line to Incheon. My room was small, but it's not unexpected. It was clean, modern, room service was quicker than promised, bed was comfortable. The bathroom is big for Asian hotel rooms, great shower stall with rain showerhead and Molton Brown products. Included bathroom and slippers, in room safety deposit. Would return.

"great hotel but noisy location"
The hotel and its staff were excellent; they made every effort to be helpful. The concierge service was outstanding, especially important for a foreign visitor who did not speak the language. Very nice fitness club, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Location is central Seoul, very convenient. Only complaint was that the noise from the adjacent Seoul Plaza was not "occasional," but constant. There was always some celebration, concert, or political rally going on, often quite late, and the sounds of those events were clearly audible from my room.

"Fantastic"
I was only there for a night, but would have loved to stay longer. I stayed on the club floor and received fantastic service in every interaction. The hotel also connects directly to the subway, head towards exit 6 of the City Hall stop and there are signs for the plaza to the right, go that way and you'll find the hotel basement which has some shops. This was really convenient because Korea is so humid in the summer, I was glad to avoid even an extra minute outside. It is also in a great location, close to most tourist sights.

"Clean but nothing else! Too sad to take a photo!"
Although we both are Korean, none of us were from Seoul thus we thought it would be nice to stay overnight to look around during my summer holiday in Korea as I live in London. I looked up a few websites and found this hotel. Like usual 5* hotel, this hotel seemed nice and modern as well as it facilitated everything what we wanted. However, when I checked in, room (twin bed) was a lot smaller than I expected, the swimming pool was in the another building (in a short distance but it was pain) and the hotel lobby looked sad and disappointing. There were no pictures or paintings to look and no comfortable area to sit while you were waiting. I almost felt like I was in the public hall! Most of all, the weirdest thing I ever experienced was that there was a glass section between the room and the bathroom with controlled curtain which was basically you could watch over bathroom from your bed. So weird I must say! I am not sure whether it was the part of “modern” technology environment in your hotel’s motto, it considered as cheap and slightly unnecessary idea to me. Like normal guest, what I was expecting from your hotel service was something more reasonable or basic such as comfortable space and relaxed environment or nice breakfast! Overall, staffs were friendly and helpful but hotel itself was unable to provide 5* service which was very disappointing.

"Terrible manner & good facility...."
This hotel is not international standard which is especially duty manager's mentality and standpoint. I had terrible experience in my last staying. What they provide sream iron per my request but the iron spraied with rust and steamed. So I requested them investigation the iron with my trouser. But they opened my room without my approval to remove such iron and they washed my wool trouser without my order and approval. Finally my wool trouser was ripped. They request me my any receipt of the suit but the trouser and jacket was gift from my business client. Who is get receipt of gift from gift provider? The most shock point is that they open my room to remove the problem iron to remove. I recorded stamement of a duty manager every situation....this is terrible manner despit some officers in executive rouge are very kind....

One palace was right across the street. The room was quiet and beds very comfortable. The decor was nice and very high tech with the lights and shades. We would highly recommend this hotel for its location and hospitality and five star service.

Great courteous staff. Very convenient location. It would be nice if there is a hot tub in the fitness center. We stayed there in February which is cold during that time. To get to the fitness center, we had to cross the street. It's not a big deal at all - that's why I gave it a 5 star rating. The hotel room is very technologically advanced. Everything is electronically controlled including window curtains, lights, toilets, etc.

"Great Stay, bub Lounge bfast could use a boost"
Had a lovely stay at the plaza. Wish it could have been longer. Breakfast in the club lounge was smaller than I had thought. Would have loved some more options, and more ability to personalize. Also, some of the waffles were either overcooked or had been sitting out too long. Everything else was good, and I loved the afternoon tea. The amenity products are Hermes, and smell lovely. The room itself was chic and had an interesting and unique layout, despite being a bit small. Would have loved another 10sq feet of space. Our shower head had a bit of a leak, but the waterfall shower worked perfectly. The slippers were fantastically comfortable. We had a great stay.

The main function of a hotel is to be a restful place to stay.
