This is my first trip to Seoul, or indeed Korea, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Overall it's been a very positive experience. Costs here generally run about the same as Australia - at least for a business traveller.
Lotte World is a cross between a shopping centre and Disneyland. The hotel is out to the east of the main city centre so of limited value to most business travellers. Most of the staff have English capability and are vey courtious and helpful. My room rate was very low by comparison with other major cities, however other costs in the hotel are typical of an internation luxury hotel.
In Seoul, public transport is the way to go. The driving is pretty eratic, and quite aggressive, however the train system is very extensive, clean, reliable and by most standards very inexpensive. Taxis are also inexpensive, although be aware that there are 2 classes of taxi - the black ones are supposedly more luxurious and cost about 50% more. Frankly they aren't really much better so go with the regular orange or grey ones.
