Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower
4.6/537 Reviews

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower

Myeong-dong Seoul|1.62km from MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art) Seoul
Stayed at the Lotte Executive Tower just after the holidays, in a Premier Double Room. Pros: - The entrance of the Executive Tower is absolutely beautiful. Same with the Main Tower. Elegant, refined, beautiful art work. The executive tower check-in desks are on the 15th floor. - Easy access by escalator directly into the Lotte Department Store (from where the escalator takes you to, hang a right to get to the famous food hall!) - Location can’t be beat. Directly across from Eujiro Station (1) and around the corner from Myeong-Dong Walking Street / Night Market and several 7-11s (which are almost as good as the 7-11s in Japan). - Our room was beautiful, spacious, thoughtfully designed and decorated. Very modern touches and upscale finishes. A chandelier in the bathroom?? - Immaculate housekeeping. - Excellent temperature and very strong water pressure in the shower! - Appreciate the 2 complimentary bottles of Evian every day. - Fast wifi speeds. Cons: - Love the Diptyque toiletries but wish they weren’t the communal / shared bottles. There were bits of dried lotion crusted on the pump from the previous occupant. - Weird that neither lobby had a single chair to sit on. What’s up with that? Comes off a bit inhospitable. This isn’t the type of place to attract non-guests / loiterers. A bench wouldn’t kill anyone! - For a 5* hotel and the price we’re paying, it’s disappointing that there is a surcharge should you need a toothbrush, toothpaste or use of the sauna (!!). They claim the charge for toothbrush and paste is to prevent wastage but surely you could just have these small items available upon request at the front desk? - The doormen’s manners range from formal and friendly (some) to indifferent (most) to downright hostile (many), especially if you are not a Korean speaker, as many don’t speak English. I’m not arrogant enough to think they should speak English in a non-English speaking country, but a smile is universal, you know? Would likely stay here again at the right price and given the location.

Sophia Hanok Guesthouse

Insadong / Bukchon Seoul|0.13km from MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art) Seoul
Major security and food hygiene issues. Beware! Food hygiene issue: They provide bibimbap + other side dishes for breakfast. The alarming thing is their re-use of the side-dishes. When the breakfast was over and all other guests have left the dining area, the host casually put the unconsumed side dishes back into the larger pots where they are stored. The reason this is alarming is because the side dishes are shared among all the guests, and the sharing nature of the side dishes inevitably means that their saliva will also be shared. Not only is this gross to think about, but this will also potentially promote infectious diseases. Security issue: We stayed in a private guest room as a couple with our private bathroom. The locks were the old Korean style, with 2 sets of 4 sliding doors - one set on the outside, one set on the inside. The outer set of sliding doors have 2 screw-in locks which can be padlocked. The inner set of sliding doors only have screw-in locks. When leaving the room, I had the inner set of sliding doors shut, with one side of the door remaining locked. We were shocked to find that upon returning, both sides of the inner doors were unlocked and opened, indicating that someone had entered our room. No tampering of the padlock was evident, suggesting that this person had the proper keys to the padlock. What was more disturbing was that there was no good reason for anyone to have been there! No cleaning and no rearranging of amenities! We tried several times to contact the owner to no avail. We immediately packed and left after the first night. Value for Money: Quite expensive for what it is. But, if you want the experience of staying in an old-style traditional korean housing, there are several other such guesthouses. Location: Good location. Close to Anguk subway station, palaces and insadong, but far enough from the main road to not be affected by road noise. Cleanliness: Clean enough. Staff: Questionable business practice & work ethics. There is one elderly woman who appears to be helping to keep the guesthouse clean and to prepare meals. She only speaks Korean, and does so very loudly and abruptly. I am a Korean, and this does not bother me as I do have some idea about how some people speak, but my wife found this very confronting. Facilities: Minimal. Very small rooms with no furniture. But this is, after all, a part of the traditional Korean Hanok experience.

It was a trip with a child, but the boss responded so kindly and the room was so warm, especially because I booked an open restaurant at 11:30, I asked for a forgiveness of the check-out time. The child says he will come again in spring. Fluctuate ~~ Rest.

The transport guesthouse in the middle of Seoul is quiet and cozy, and the staff are friendly and my family visited their homeland stayed comfortably. It was a great luck to find a place where you can stay comfortably without any cost while looking for a suitable place to do Seoul City Tour. There were many restaurants around, so I could have a food dinner. It was great to have a friendly staff guide the restaurants around.

It's good because it's close to Gyeongbokgung Palace. It was good to include breakfast and the breakfast was so delicious. The boss is kind and cozy because it is a hanok.

Breathtaking view over Gyeongbokgung and the Blue House from the 2 windows of the palace-view room on the 5th floor. The owner is very friendly and helps to carry the luggage up and down the stairs.

After booking, uni will make the route clear and detailed. It will also confirm the arrival time. The hotel is not paying attention to the small alley behind the g25. It is easy to ignore the two slightly larger rounds before and after the hotel. I heard someone calling my name. Asked if I happened to have met the dog uni and took me back to the Hanok. It was a more traditional Hanok single room. It was a small bed and a dressing cabinet. But the space of one person was enough before the uni had put the room in the room. The opened ones are very detailed. The accommodation and nationality of each house and the kitchen and public baths that can be used are clean. The toiletries are very complete. The yard can be like a TV series. You can sit at the door and enjoy the sun. The kind of chat is also the high-rise green plant and the sauce tank. There is no mountain climbing to see the faint sound of the TV series. The soundproofing of the jar is not too good. The door next door can be heard loudly and can hear the quiet environment at night. It is not very good overall. Going out can lock the door uni will give a password lock to teach you to use the night to sleep, push the door up and down, there is also a small door buckle can be very peace of mind
