So today I'm doing a tour of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) with the USO which I am really looking forward to. I had breakfast early then organised my accommodation for the next few nights before hopping on the subway to Samgakji station then walking to the USO office with their trusty directions. I booked the tour a few weeks ago because it only runs twice a week and I was told it was really popular. There were lots of strict rules regarding dress code so ...
... older brother Nolbu lived in small town and they had strong friendship. However, their parents died suddenly and they leaved a much legacy. Nolbu got greedy from legacy. Nolbu evicted to Heungbu.
A few years later, Heungbu and Nolbu got married. Nolbu and his wife were unsympathetic and greedy. so many people hated Nolbu and his wife. But Heungbu and his wife were kind and sympathetic though they were very pool. ...
1AM.Wish I could sleep like Spencer. She knocks out for at least eight hours a night, even with the lights on and me clicking away at the keyboard. No matter what time I go to bed I know I'll be up at the crack of dawn, but I can’t even think about laying down right now because I’m still wired from running. Probably I should kick the caffeine addiction; it would improve my quality of life significantly. Then again, there are lots of things I could do to make my ...
... purchased, it didn't seem to work. Maybe the technology hates me, or the technology may be too advanced for me. I have to admit that I do not use the train system at home often, and the use of cards is different. At home, you insert the card pass at the slot, while in Seoul, you put the T-money card above the sensor where it says T-Money. So, I may have been your regular idiot abroad at that time. Knowing I will probably have a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews W Seoul Walkerhill
Stayed over a weekend in July. The hotel is very modern, with a funky lobby, neat bar area. Was very crowded with many families staying on the weekend. Our stay included breakfast, which was excellent. Stayed in a standard wonderful room, which was large and well appointed. The bed was larger than a standard king- or at least it appeared to be. Typical W bed - very comfortable, excellent sheets, etc. Had a regular CRT tv, which seemed out of place in such a modern room. Shower and tub were nice, good sized desk if you needed to work. Ordered room service once, nothing special (but very pricey). Had dinner at Spaghetti Hill - affiliated restaurant with the adjacent Sheraton (avoid it). Gym was excellent, and swimming pool was nice (but very crowded with families). Due to the rain, the outdoor pool area was closed (in fact, I didn't even see it).
Facilities were not up to par with 5 star hotels. They lacked a hot tub, and the sauna room was extra charge. The sun deck was not pleasant - small and no service. The pool/sun deck area ran out of slippers and did not get more upon our request. So, there were no slippers to use in the public restrooms.
Best hotel in seoul !
This is the best hotel i ve ever been, very modern and stylish. Check-in was very fast, so after that I went to lunch, terrific buffet and took a massage in the SPA. They really give you the service you deserve. If you are really looking for a hip and first class hotel in seoul visit the W in seoul.
I arrived at W seoul for the first time and was blown away by the sense of arrival, the welcome ambassadors and the very amazing lobby with full bar and life as your entrance greeting. Th eroom was very chic and contemorary - food the best I had in Seoul - if you are in for an international ining experience.
The Spa - WOW - this was great 3 days. You must try it!
I loved my stay at the W. The staff was very friendly and hip. The room decoration is very modern. The bed is really comfy and I love the aveda products that they offer. I'm a big sucker for customer service and I must say that this is one of the best hotels in the customer service department. The only thing that I did not like was its isolated location.
Not for the conservative
From the time you arrive w provides a totally different experience. I enjoyed being introduced to so many different ways of their hospitality in this hotel. If you're not willing to let go of your existing ideas of what a 5 star hotel is, you're not likely to appreciate this hotel.
My wife and I just returned from staying 2 nights at the W Hotel Walkerhill.
Quiet, relaxing location -- Overpriced restaurants
I have stayed at most of the major hotels all over Seoul. The W is the newest hotel in Seoul. The thing I like best about the W is the QUIET. No road and traffic noise. The rooms are very comfortable and modern. The health club is excellent. The pool is amazing. The only drawback is the location -- there is nothing that you can walk to. So you must eat at the hotel. They price the menu to take advantage of this. Expect to pay a 30% premium on the food. The service at the hotel was good.
Unbelievably rude service
The stay at the W hotel would have been fine (as it has been for my stays at other W hotels) had it not been for the rude, clueless and pretentious check-in staff at the W Seoul Walkerhill who acted as if they security guards at a night club trying to keep out customers rather than check in staff at an upscale hotel. It may be trying too hard to be hip rather than a premier hotel. I would not recommend staying here.
The W Seoul Walker Hill is very much a W Hotel: funky, modern, and hipster-trending. If you're accustomed to a more traditionally fancy hotel, with chocolates on the pillow and gold sconces, you probably won't feel too comfortable at this or any W. So, caveat visitor.
