The Shilla

Seoul | Deluxe

The Shilla’s location in a quiet area of the bustling city of Seoul couldn’t be more convenient and is one of its many appealing factors. The hotel may be set within Jangchungdan Park, 23 acres of delightfully peaceful private woodland,  but you are never too far from the heart of the action. Seoul’s commercial district and many of its star attractions, including the National Theatre of Korea, Namsan Park and Namdaemun Market, are just a short stroll away.

The East-meets-West interiors include soaring public spaces and a choice of European style guest rooms or Korean Ondol style rooms, that are furnished with genuine Joseon-era antiquities. Even the Standard rooms offer views of the Namsan mountains, but upgrade to a Superior Suite and you additionally enjoy views over the incredibly romantic, two-storey, traditional Korean house that now serves as the hotel’s banqueting hall.

The hotel provides a range of dining options to suit all tastes, with a 3-Michelin starred Korean restaurant (La Yeon); authentic Japanese dishes; modern French cuisine and classic Chinese food that can be sampled surrounded by masterpieces by Picasso and Miro.

The Shilla makes the most of its spacious location, providing a sculpture trail and jogging track within its grounds. Other facilities of note include an indoor driving range to practice your swing at and a luxury Guerlain spa. The rooftop pool offers impressive views of the Namsan mountains and has manicured gardens fringed by private cabana-style rooms, jacuzzis and a bar area.

We Say
An oasis in the heart of Seoul. Fine dining and plenty of pampering make this the perfect escape from the non-stop city.
