Recommended business hotels
Global hotel conglomerate Accor has started a designer line called Ibis Style to cater to those looking for a class up from Accor’s budget brand, Ibis. Hotel ibis Styles Ambassador is the conglomerate’s first chain in Korea and has already established itself as a reasonably-priced business hotel with its personality and quality service.
Shilla Hotel has started a new line of business hotels called Shilla Stay and the fourth location following Dongtan, Yeoksam and Jeju finds us in Seodaemun. Built on expert know-how of hotel management and quality service, Shilla Stay boasts affordable accommodation fees as well. Just a ten minute walk from three main palaces, the beds and amenities in each room are also impressive. Many guests have raved about the 100% Hungarian goose feather bedding and the Aveda toiletries. Other design details include the metal sliding door, which divides the bedroom from the bathroom, and the natural light that permeates every part of the suite, including the bathroom. In every way, Shilla Stay can really be called a "mini Shilla Hotel".
Don't be surprised if your Korean friends may not recognize the brand Four Points right away. The line of hotels has yet to make its mark within the country. However, the lack of recognization doesn't make for a lack of quality here. Just minutes away from Seoul station at the heart of central Seoul, location is key to why the venue is often sought after. The staff is known to be friendly, the rooms rather spacious and parking is rumored to be easy to find.
