TravelPod Member ReviewsTHE PLAZA Seoul
The Plaza hotel in Seoul is an excellent choice for business travel or simply pleasure. The service by staff is high quality, the rooms are modern, clean and of good size. The facility has a SPA located in the front building with incredible views of the city, Golf range, Sauna and steaming room. Hotel guests have access to the GYM and Pool free of cost. The underground levels have boutiques, travel agencies, a professional tailor and a delicious french bakery, among other things. It is located in a privileged location, right in front of the City Hall and minutes away from Seoul Finance Center, as well as 10 minute walking distance from Namdaemun, Namsan Park and N Seoul Tower, Myeong Dong shopping district, and other attractions. There is also a bus that takes you to and from Incheon International Airport at very affordable cost (around US$15), every 30 minutes or so.

... back to Camp Bonifas where we joined our original bus with the South Korean tour guide, a very well-informed and patient woman who did a magnificent job. I must admit that I had to suppress my laughter when she described Syngman Rhee as the first leader of a free and democratic South Korea. Until the first fair election in 1987, South Korea was a nasty little fascist dictatorship every bit as odious as North Korea is now. I'm glad to say that things have changed and South Korea is now ...
... straight ahead, past 3 small blue buildings, at the large building ahead facing us. That building has North Korean soldiers observing us.........
A very strange feeling indeed.
We are told we can now take pictures by the guide soldier who hasn't paused for breath yet. After all, he says, the North Korean soldiers you see ahead are passing information about you all to the soldiers inside the building who will be taking ...
... then realized Janell had to leave for her flight at 1....lucky for her she had a long flight, so the " never go to bed" plan worked in her favor. It was a great way to end her Korean experience and I'm so glad everything worked out the way it did.
In closing, I'm so thankful to have had such a good friend fly across the world to spend a week with me. I got to hug a familiar friend, have a sense of home feeling, show off this beautiful city, share the culture in which ...
