“Exellent hotel!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Excellent hotel with fantastic staff! Everyone here makes a fantastic effort to make you really feel at home - very warm staff. The hotel is situated across the Han river from Gang Nam (very close). I would recommend this hotel for business travelers.

It's my first time to go the this part of Seoul. It's convenient to take free shuttle bus to hotel and the staff there were nice to us. The room is not that big but everything is nice. We can also enjoy the beautiful view of Han River.

Spent a week in Seoul on business... Very glad to have stayed at the Sheraton Walkhill. The location wasn't necessarily convenient to my meetings but was beautiful none the less. The room was roomy and very well apportioned. The hotel is beautiful. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seoul.

First, the good. This hotel had wonderful views and is located within a park. A walk around the grounds is beautiful. Shuttle bus takes you to several subway stations to access Seoul. Concierge was excellent!!

Now the bad. I did not enjoy having to pay $11 USD for my morning coffee and $ 100 for my buffet dinner. If I want to spend that kind of money at dinner, I want some ambiance, not noisy kids in high chairs and people bumping into my table. The other restaurant is mediocre at best. In room Internet is something like $20 a day per device, but lobby area has free wi-fi (somewhat). I sat in the lobby working and returning emails until they kicked me off of wi-fi. When I tried to get back on, it was password protected. Oh, the room we stayed in only had a full size bed, not queen or king! There much better options for hotels in Seoul.

The hotel is fine, it is next to a casino but if you are going to Korea for business you do not want to stay here, as it is near nothing. Traffic in Seoul is horrible and colleagues will not want to trek this far to come meet you. Being isolated on a MOUNTAIN not a hill, your food choices are limitied to what the hotel has to offer including $14 coffee at the cafe.

If your credit card is not Korean you will be billed in US Dolalrs unless you tell them to bill you in KWN, this was a problem for my expense report.

I had a nice view out of my room of the wall next to the building so that was not too pleasant to look at

There was 1 nice lady at the front desk who was pleasant and tried to help as much as she could but just not a business hotel

Even though the hotel location is quite far from most attractions in Seoul, but its complimentary shuttle service seemed to make up for that. Also, the airport limousine also makes stop right at the hotel entrance door, so it's very convenient for guest coming from airport! My room has the best view of the Han river below especially at sun rise! However, room was quite small and nothing spectacular for a "luxury" hotel! Service at the hotel was only average, they could definitely be enhanced.

The hotel is located on walker hill and features very nice views on the river and the city of Seoul. It is very modern and the rooms are very nice and well sized. The service everywhere is excellent. It has a sky bar which is very nicely designed with very nice views. It also has a Duty Free shopping centre and a Casino, both of which I didn't use. The main drawback, if you want to stay close to everything is, that you will need a Taxi to get anywhere. Due to Seoul traffic it can take forever to get anywhere. To avoid the expensive taxi ride from Incheon airport it's best to take the fast train to Seoul station and get a cab from there. The total travel time is roughly the same, but you'll save quite a lot of money that way. Gimpo airport is quite a bit closer. For business travel I would not stay at this hotel again merely because of the long distance to the city. If you don't need or want to stay in the centre this is a very good hotel.
