Great variety of breakfast choices, very fresh highly recommend! there plenty of service people to help you around, but you better dress well enough. Gym and pool + sauna are quite nice.. there is a korean style jacuzzi in the gym changing room.

The Shilla is a Korean chain hotel and the room is quite small and very Korean, for me I think the room is quite small and very simple deco rather old generation hotel room. I have been staying in many 5 stars hotels and this is one of the disappointted one.The room and bathroom are not quite fit with the international 5 stars hotel room. It is very pricey!!!

Service was excellent // every time we requested something (ice, clean cups, more coffee packets), the delivery was in 3 minutes!!

The room was too warm and the hotel could not put the a/c on as was still in heat mode. The restaurants were too expensive, especially breakfast where the coffee was about 9 US dollars.

Great hotel, and good rate! I've stayed here before and paid a lot more. Probably the best hotel in Korea.

Dining costs are expensive.
