The Grand Hyatt is an emblematic hotel of the city of Seoul, overlooking Namsan Park. The building housing the hotel is somewhat charmless but is fitted with every necessary facility: 6 restaurants, sports amenities, a spa and 2 pools. The outdoor pool and terrace are turned into ice rinks every winter.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The hotel is located in the pretty Namsan park, with a direct view of the N Seoul Tower. As it is a little far from the city centre, the peace and quiet of the surroundings do make up for the distance. Incheon International Airport is 36 mi away, so allow an hour and a half for transfers.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 601 rooms and suites have a predictable albeit pleasant decor - contemporary, with simple colours: light grey wood, straight lines, nothing shocking. Many room categories are available, starting with standards, then club rooms and suites (more traditional in style) or still, the presidential suite. They are all equipped with a desk area, individual air conditioning, a mini bar with a welcome tray (2 bottles of water changed every day), and a safe. The bathrooms are very neat and fully equipped with a bathtub as well as a shower (from the 'grand deluxe' category on), a hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers.

    Accommodation tip

    This hotel's main asset is of course the view. It is important, therefore, that you request a room on a higher floor or reserve one from a superior category - it really is worth it!

    Overview 9.70 /10

    The Grand Hyatt Seoul is aptly named as everything here is grand: 20 floors overlook the park, giving guests a breathtaking view of the city or the hill. A guaranteed surprise is awaiting you on arrival when you walk through the swinging door and see the view on the other side of the hotel. The lobby is very bright, thanks to a large panoramic bay window. Sports amenities are to be found in every corner of the hotel via the Club Olympus, which is a sports centre with both an indoor and an outdoor pool, a spacious gym, 3 tennis courts, 2 squash courts, an outdoor ice rink (in winter only) and a sauna with different facilities for men and women. The spa consists of 14 rooms where body and facial care as well as massages are performed according to the European tradition (skin nourishment, energizers and relaxation), but also according to the Korean tradition, where 6 year old ginger is used for its extraordinary virtues. Of course, you will also find a few boutiques, such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Baccarat or Givenchy. Moreover, on a more practical note, a flower shop, a car hire agency and a travel agency are available.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The hotel has 7 restaurants. Akasaka and Tenkai are two Japanese restaurants where a complete range of sushi and grilled food is served. The Paris Grill was inspired by a Parisian brasserie, serving European classics - it is actually more popular with the local middle class than with European guests. There is a Chinese restaurant. Then there is the Terrace, most exceptional place to eat, as its location offers a beautiful view of the Han River in the warm season (light cuisine: buffet, salads, sandwiches, pasta, etc). The Barbecue is only open in summer, giving guests the opportunity to have an original 'waterside' meal. The JJ Deli serves simple meals. The bars are another one of the Grand Hyatt Seoul's top features, with no less than 4 including 1 night club: the Lobby Lounge - decorated in a colonial style, the Paris - with its breathtaking view, the Helicon - a karaoke bar with 6 highly luxurious private rooms, and the J.J. Mahoney's - the night club offering nine different ambiances, extremely popular with the local golden youth.

    To know

    The Grand Hyatt Seoul has a free shuttle taking guests to the city centre (Myeongdong) every hour, which is ideal as public transport isn't very convenient (mostly because transfers are involved). Although the clientele mainly consists of people on business trips, this hotel does know how to care for holiday-makers, thanks to numerous amenities and a good location. The park can also come in handy for a jog or a stroll.

      Korea's oldest operating hotel, the Westin Chosun has never been better. With a downtown Seoul location, this refined, classy property marries the very best of Asian hospitality and service with the finest European amenities and design. Being a chain hotel, no great risks have been taken in terms of the décor, however the scale is pretty grand and the guestrooms are spacious in a way that us Europeans could only dream of. They are not only generously proportioned but highly functional, excellently appointed and above all comfortable. Close to many of the city's main attractions, the hotel also has top class eating and drinking outlets and an admirable wellness facility. The fine views and quite remarkable service make the Westin Chosun Seoul one of the city's finest accommodation choices.

      The Grand Ambassador Seoul is one of many large scale, high standard hotels in the city. This comfortable hotel is equipped with every necessary facility for guests to enjoy their stay. Within a 10 minute walk, they can be in the city centre or else enjoying the indoor driving range. This fabulous hotel used to belong to the Sofitel group but it now bears the Pullman label. Out of the Grand Ambassador's 5 restaurants, our favourite was the gastronomic Café du Chef, which is the hotel's pride and joy thanks to the excellent French and Korean cuisine it serves.

      • Location 4.0

      Arguably the city's trendiest place to stay, the W Seoul Walker Hill is very much a young person's hotel with outlandish design, a buzzing social scene and some fine amenities. Sat high above the city to the east, the hotel affords magnificent views of the South Korean capital, but its location does mean that it is a little distant from the centre of Seoul. However, being on the edges of the city has its advantages such as the availability of space. The guestrooms and suites at the W are extremely generous and the restaurants, wellness facility and public spaces are all generously proportioned too giving the guest a freedom not found in many other properties. A real spectacle, the W is a must for any self-respecting modish traveller as long as they do not mind being on the fringes of the city.
