Good location, Starbucks just downstairs
Front desk service poor, a staff call Chris was impatient and not willing answering question as we didn't book the room with the hotel. He told us to ask Towels are old, yellowish Colorado with holes. Bedsheets have stint and holes. No shower curtain not floor mat, need to use existing towels to dry floor if wet. Stayed 2 days, but no refill of amenities. Aircon cannot control, hot in room and need to open window. Room size is reasonably good. But for bigger size guest, better book double bed as single bed is very single.

Shilla stay Seoul in the middle of Winter
Very nice hotel in the heart of Seoul. The hotel is fairly new and the condition was excellent both in terms of the room, the restaurant and reception. Minor complaints, they need new towels and they were not proactive enough when my room safe didn't work. But minor - apart from that everything was really comfortable and impressive. Level of English at reception was very good. Helpful and provided directions. Hotel was very warm when outside was -6degC to -12degC. You could see the CBD and mountains from my room, but I wouldn't say that Seoul is overly picturesque. Very close to the metro / subway station. Starbucks and Burger King very close by if you get desperate to remember how bad take away food is at home. Otherwise good coffee and good restaurants are about 10 - 15 mins walk. I wouldn't say you're in a strong food district, but there are some local eateries just down the side of the hotel, which could be very nice - I didn't get time.
