Shilla stay Seoul in the middle of Winter
Very nice hotel in the heart of Seoul. The hotel is fairly new and the condition was excellent both in terms of the room, the restaurant and reception. Minor complaints, they need new towels and they were not proactive enough when my room safe didn't work. But minor - apart from that everything was really comfortable and impressive. Level of English at reception was very good. Helpful and provided directions. Hotel was very warm when outside was -6degC to -12degC. You could see the CBD and mountains from my room, but I wouldn't say that Seoul is overly picturesque. Very close to the metro / subway station. Starbucks and Burger King very close by if you get desperate to remember how bad take away food is at home. Otherwise good coffee and good restaurants are about 10 - 15 mins walk. I wouldn't say you're in a strong food district, but there are some local eateries just down the side of the hotel, which could be very nice - I didn't get time.

A good hotel in easy walking distance of main square, shopping and lots of restaurants. Bed and room comfortable. Breakfast a little expensive for what it is, but all foods you expect. Wifi free and good and complimentary bottled water.

Location is excellent for visiting main cultural palaces; room was not clean enough and towels seemed old and not fresh, abundant breakfast but quality could be improved

Shilla Stay Gwanghwamun, Seoul, South Korea
The aircon wasn’t working, hotels explanation was that the season was changing and therefore aircon in the room will only work if The Central hotel aircon is on, which was on only a few hours a day. This meant that my room didn’t go below 26.0 C and had difficulties sleeping.
