Editorial review:

This lavish hotel is located close to Seokchon Lake and is adjacent to Lotte World, Lotte department store, and Lotte mart. It has chandeliers and Korean art throughout and has a European-Asian vibe. The rooms feature natural wood and pastel shades, and less expensive rooms have showers in the bathtubs. There are babysitters available for W10,000 per hour. The executive floor is great for businesspeople who don't want to be bothered by children. You'll probably pay W200,000 or less, holidays excepted.

                    Convenient location on top of underground train station. Easy to get direct Limo bus from airport at reasonable price. Clean rooms with good facility.

                    Need to pay for Internet access in the room. Staff were dry in the way they talk with guests. Polit though but when asking about locTions of interest or advise they provided short brief answers.

                    Location next to the Lotte Theme park, convenient access to shopping and subway stations.

                    Rooms are rather small and the lighting is dim. No free internet access.

                    My kids love t character room very much. Very comfortable, big bed and comes with sofa bed as well. Shopping is just a step away. Our main purpose stay in this hotel is because we wanted to visit Lotte World.

                    Breakfast was not part of t room package. For a room that cost won 290,000 per night, I think breakfast should be included.

                    when we arrived there wasn't any kingsize bed for our reservation, so they gave us an upgrade without additional penny !

                    there were plenty of issues while ordering a movie.

                    Hotel rooms were very clean, staff were very helpfull and they are speeking english very well. location of hotel near the lotte world advantur, which was very good for our kids.

                    it was far away from the downtown and main shoping centeres.

                    The all essential facilities were fully equipped in the hotel and the guest room was clean and sufficiently spacious. The majority of clerks were able to speak Japanese and it seems very convenient for us to explain the difficult situation in case of sudden emergency.

                    There was no explanation in regard to extra services provided by the hotel when we checked in. Therefore, we felt inconvenient for transportation to the center of the Seoul as well as dinning at night. Overall, this hotel was good, however, if they could provide more considerate service to guests, the quality of the hotel was more improved.

                  • Family with children

                    The staff was very polite and prompt. Also it was very convinient to get through all the territory which includes shopping area, adventure and food courts, thus it does need to get out.

                    Yes, the stuff knows english very few, so I had some language difficulties to explain what I'd like when it conserned complicated things. Forexample, they had changed my keys so once I could not get into my room, and the porter coudnot explain me what had happend. They must have good english working at the International hotel.

                    It's in a good location, connest to department stores.

                    The staff and facility is only worth 3 stars level. Room is small and decor is old.

                    The staff was very courteous. Beds were comfortable. The hotel is very pretty.

                    The lighting in the rooms is much too dim. I could barely see to get dressed. The bathrooms need a large bright light and the bedroom needs a large lighted mirror with an outlet near it for dressing. I was also unhappy that the hotel would not give us the discount rate for our function since we had booked online. Our room wasn't anything special and it seems they could have given us the rate as a courtesy. These rooms are very overpriced for their size, functionality and comfort. Probably won't stay here again unless there is nowhere else to go.

                    The facility is getting tired and is in need some renovation; carpet especially in the halls and rooms. Also ridiculously expensive for average breakfast buffet and in the cafe.
