Check-In

Check-in was quick and efficient. I arrived at about 9pm so not many people. The person on the reception was polite and professional. She gave me a list of benefits as a Gold member of Hilton which included buffet breakfast and Executive Lounge access Room Upon entering my room – my jaw dropped. The room is a 1 bedroom suite – which includes a powder room, extra bathroom, Ensuite with shower, double sink and tub. The master bedroom had a nice king sized bed as well as a couch next to it for gazing outside the window to the river and city nearby. There is a TV in the bedroom as well – 42 inch LED screen which also includes Apple TV box – so it lets you use the computer there. No need to bring a laptop.

Breakfast

I chose to have breakfast at Zest – which is on level 2 of the building. I could also have gone to the Executive lounge to have breakfast – but the buffet breakfast is always more appealing. It is a very large restaurant. There is a combination of Western, Japanese, Korean and Chines all in the same restaurant. There is 4 cooking stations as well. See below for the pictures.

Executive Lounge

The lounge is located on the top floor of the hotel – level 37. I had a peak after breakfast – and as most lounges in the world do – they provide a small subset of what is offered in the buffet breakfast. But I was impressed with the hot food variety such as eggs, sausages and mushrooms available. They also has different pastries should the customer which to eat it.

Summary

This Hotel just opened last year. It is luxurious in every way possible. This hotel incorporates all the latest technological advancements that is possible. Staff are professional at all times and the concierge were ready to help. If you wish to stay in one of the most luxurious hotels in the world and your stop is in Seoul -  I highly recommend this to you. This standard of this hotel tops even the Conrad in Hong Kong.
