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.

This last trip I was finally able to enjoy more time on my own just getting lost in the Seoul charm. Don't leave without eating at a BBQ joint!

... during Operation Paul Bunyan…..the most expensive tree trimming in history since it was supported by two platoons or US Soldiers, a company of ROK Special Forces Soldiers, US engineers with chain saws to actually cut the tree down and multiple fixed and rotary winged aircraft flying in the area to include a few B-52s.

... overhang of a palace building, but most of our time was spent in the rain.
Eventually it was time to go and we were all more than happy to get onto the warm dry bus. My shoes had soaked through completely and I peeled off my socks to try to work the circulation back into my toes. A short bus ride later and we were out into the rain again (shoes back on) and into the streets.
This time we were headed to a dance performance, but none of us really understood ...
