A Royal Oasis

Dubbed “an Oasis in the City” due to its serenity and central location in Myeongdong, the 4-star, 306-room Seoul Royal Hotel is renowned as a place of rest and relaxation. It has become a focal point of tourism that is synonymous with shopping in this city of more than 10 million people, and is actually connected to a shopping center. The Seoul Royal is considered a landmark as the first privately operated hotel in the country, and is popular with both visitors and locals, who frequently patronize the hotel’s bar and restaurants.

Cultural Link

Due to its ideal Myeongdong location, the Seoul Royal is a link to one of the city’s most important social, cultural and shopping areas. The hotel is within walking distance of the Myeongdong Cathedral, a Gothic Revival Roman Catholic Church and the seat of the Archbishop of Seoul. The Seoul Global Culture and Tourism Center is also nearby, offering a global cultural-exchange venue that is freely available for anyone who visits the city. Interpreters who speak English, Chinese, and Japanese are on-hand to provide information and answer all inquiries regarding Seoul. The hotel is also close to the massive Lotte Department Store.

Amenities Abound

The smoke-free Seoul Royal emphasizes serenity, comfort and convenience, from its cozy café with views of its peaceful garden to its air-conditioned guest rooms. In addition to the café, the hotel has a buffet and deli. Whether you choose a standard room or suite, all Seoul Royal accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi, desk, personal safe, refrigerator, minibar, tea set, bath robe, slippers, and hair dryer. Other amenities include a spa, a business center with computer station, meeting rooms, laundry service, and free roundtrip airport shuttle. The Seoul Royal Hotel also offers catered wedding services and certified masseuses who specialize in acupressure massage.        

The Bottom Line

The Seoul Royal Hotel is an oasis of serenity in the asphalt jungle of one of the world’s most populous cities. The 21-story hotel is in close proximity to another island of tranquility, Namsan Mountain, which is also a park and a popular place for hiking, recreation, and just surveying this city of millions and its forest of skyscrapers. The Seoul Royal’s well-earned reputation for rest and relaxation is reflected in its placid guest rooms and abundant amenities that ensure a regal stay that makes guests feel like royalty.
