Make yourself at home in Seoul by choosing comfortable accommodations that will give you a new cultural experience or offer incredible service. Here are suggestions from our Forbes Travel Guide editors on places to sleep in the city:
The Shilla Seoul. What do George W. Bush, Tom Cruise and Bill Gates have in common? A stay at The Shilla. This luxury Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel offers views of Mt. Namsan and a beautiful driveway that features Korean-style architecture. Stop by the Guerlain Spa for relaxation or The Shilla Duty Free store next door for luxury shopping.
Four Seasons Hotel Seoul. An ancient Korean palace inspired this Four-Star hotel, which opened in 2015. But it's thoroghly modern: it resides in a glass tower, rooms come equipped with espresso machines and iPads, seven restaurants and bars are tucked inside and it's home to a three-story spa and fitness complex.
Park Hyatt Seoul. Minimalists will love the Park Hyatt. Who needs a lot of fussy décor when floor-to-ceiling windows feature views of the city? Modern rooms in the Four-Star hotel have elegant Myanmar oak and dark maple wood, along with granite bathrooms with deep-soaking tubs and televisions.
