Guest reviews for Imperial Palace Seoul

5 out of 5

Excellent Service

Pros: Quiet, helpful english speaking staff
Cons: No free Internet
The English speaking hotel staff was extremely helpful in all aspects of our stay including maps of the area, suggestions for transportation, and even help in making a local telephone call. Our room was spacious and quiet even though the room overlooked the main street. Also conveneint airport bus stop. A great experience as a first time visitor to Seoul

Highly recommended

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, good service, close to station
Me and my friend visited Seoul for the first time in November 2009 and I could say that The Imperial Palace really exceeded our expectation. It has everything you need; very clean and comfortable room (especially the bathroom), nice ambience, the room has everything you need from toiletries to complementary bottled water everyday, and it's close to everything. The subway station is just on the corner street. Not to mention, the staff are super friendly and they speak good english. They even helped us with our luggage all the way accross the street to where the bus stop is on our way to the airport, and it was freezing that day. And they gave us a box of chocolate as a parting gift. Me and my sister are planning to back on 2011 and I'm definitely booking my room at Imperial Palace.

Good to know this local hotel!

I usually stay at chain hotels like marriott or ritz, but this time i decided to stay at the local hotel for some reason. Just like any hotel staffs at five star hotels in Seoul, people are very nice and kind, and they were nice-looking people too! What made this hotel different from other chains were.. the club lounge! The design of the club lounge is very traditional, took a few pics there. Food in club lounge was nice, and it was pretty quiet so that I could concentrate on my readings. I would recommend this hotel to my friends, family, colleagues, etc:)

highly recommended!

i was recommended to this hotel from one of my best friends, and I regret the stay was too short at this great hotel. We had nice breakfast buffet at Amiga cafe, and there were so many comfy place inside the hotel. On sunny day, you can see very far away to Seoul tower in northern Seoul, and we were assigned high floor, it was beautiful to look out from whole-glass window.

Awesome place to be

My first time in s.korea was awesome with Imperial Palace! Staffs were very courteous and always smiling, which made me feel well treated. I stayed in the deluxe room and it was pretty modern and big. The buffet we went for dinner at the hotel was great, tasted a variety of korea food! I would definitely stay at this hotel for my second visit to seoul.

Getaway to Seoul

My then Girlfriend and I visited this hotel while we were in Korea. Only stayed two days but it was well worth it, I proposed to her, she said yes. We had a wonderful time, especially at the Spa. The location is excellent, it is just a short walk to the Aquarium. Overall I would suggest this hotel to anyone fortunate enough to be in Seoul, Korea. Cant wait to visit again but this time take our daughter with us.
