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!
