10/10 Exceptional

Great staff and amazing breakfast
All the staff members were very friendly and professional. Room condition and bedding were superb. Breakfast was very diverse with a wide range of hot dishes, fruits, bakery etc. One major downside : you need to reserve/book the swimming pool time in advance, and moreover, each slot is only 70 minutes. Very disappointing considering you're only allowed 1 slot per day. 70 minutes is definitely not enough to give a playful time to the kids. It would be somewhat understandable if it's during the peak season weekend, but not on weekdays booking with only a handful of people using the pool.

10/10 Exceptional

Most definitely one of the finest hotels I’ve stayed in anywhere in the world. The Millesme Club in particular is well worth the money. The service and kindness of the staff is unparalleled in my experience in Korea. Hands down the best hotel I’ve stayed in in my 15 years of visiting Korea.

6/10 Good

It's a brand new property in Seoul. I think many potential visitors may believe the name of Sofitel. But, you have to recognize that here in Korea, not Sofitel in other countries. It was horrible to enjoy pleasure breakfast due to visitors.
