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.

Rare is a Seoul commuter who reads a paper or a book or even chats. Everybody, but everybody is staring down into their phones, surfing the net, playing a video game, reading an online cartoon strip or even watching TV. Thankfully due the lack of phone signal and Wi-Fi, this will never happen on the London Underground.
... was cleared though customs very quickly. We had agreed to spend the night in the airport spa as the busses stop running at 11pm. So outside we went to post #5 to await the shuttle bus that would take us to the spa. We waited…and we waited…and waited…and finally Carla went back inside where the lady called the shuttle service and determined he’d be there in five minutes. Again we waited…and waited…and waited…and back she went again to ask ...
... Samgyup Sal. It is pork in the hot plate. It is very delicious.
