Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The decor is modern and simple, functional and minimalist. Rooms are not big but have all one needs for a night rest and maybe a little overnight work. The only issue is that there are no English TV channels, not even the usual CNN and BBC World that are commonplace most international hotels, so if you don't speak Korean, Chinese or Japanese, the only channel option is English speaking Chinese channel CGTN, which though international in scope, clearly tows the line of the Chinese regime.
Breakfast food is of very good quality and fully satisfactory. There is also a gym.
Given the competitive price, all in all this is an ideal place for the short stay, individual business traveller with little time to spend in the hotel.

This hotel is located 10 min walk from Yeoksam station and one subway stop away from Gangnam station, main business and commercial area of gangnam district. You can find a few restaurants nearby, but is quite convenient to go gangnam station where you’ll find a hundred more options.

The room is very practical and cozy with everything you need. It has a very comfortable bed and shower (that sometimes leaks from the glass door). Service is pretty good, in line with Seoul average which means a very high standard already. Breakfast is not included but you can find a better deal by booking together with the room in advance.

Overall a great value specially compared to other more expensive hotels in the same region.

My wife and went to spend the night in Gangnam for her birthday and the Shilla Stay in Yeoksam was our final choice of hotel. It has moderate (for the area) prices and the staff were nice. There was some wear and tear in our room that I noticed and the rooms are not as sound proof as they could be (we could hear a drunken party next door) The biggest selling point of this hotel is its location, it was incredibly convenient to both the restaurant and theater we went to. The charging of parking of hotel guests didn't make me too happy though. However overall this is a fine choice for a place to stay.

The rooms are in the average for Seoul, clean and reasonably quiet.
Internet is free and quite fast.
Service is poor. If you don't put the DND sign, they come in to clean up before 8h00. In the breakfast room, that closes at 9h30, they invite you to "clean up your table" at 9h00.
The breakfast is always the same, no variety at all. Food is barely warm and after 9h00 there is basically nothing left on the buffet.

Hotel located in between two stations and both are on line 2, convenience to take the subway anywhere.

The room was just average and service was not good.

There's sign in washroom about saving the planet, but what they provided in the room were paper cup. Some days house keeper would throw away the used cup, collected used tea spoons and left two new tea spoons for me. Some days the house keeper would not throw the used cup away and used tea spoons were still in my room for two days.

House keeper changed the bed sheet and pillow covers, there were two hair left on the bed.

Pillows were super soft, I used all four pillows but still lying on one pillow

They are not attention to details

Great hotel in convenient location. Finally a hotel which has tossed CNN in exchange for FOX News! If you travel as much as I do, you will understand how much this helps. Hopefully others will be brave enough to follow their lead.

Do not stay here, this hotel es below average but what I didn’t understand is how a hotel turn off the air conditioning in the rooms. It is so hot I already called the front desk two times but they keep telling me that this is how it is and they just offered to borrow me a fan.
I do not recommend in fact I really want to change hotels. I will attach photos my room temperature is 26.5 Celsius and 27 Celsius. This is not acceptable

The rude staff at the front desk ruined my perspective of Korea. Not sure if this will be approved but her name is Cindy Lim per her name tag. I was asking her for suggestions on closest street food and she uttered a place which I could not understand. I asked her to say it again and she was talking so fast I didn’t understand her. I ask her to show in a map and she made a exasperated look and pulled out a map and sat it on the counter folded. I told her I’m not familiar with the area and if she could please mark the map. Again another look of disgust as she pulls a marker and opens the map and points to the area. I ask her where we were or the hotel location is and she frowns and circles the map. I couldn’t believe her unwillingness to help me out. She should not work the front desk. I felt discriminated on since I was not Korean. She made me feel I was bothering her with my questions. This is my first trip to Korea and will probably be my last. It’s obvious that there is discrimination here. I’ll take and spend my vacation elsewhere. She treated the person after me much better as I stayed to observe her. Maybe because the next guest speaks Korean?

There is not much in the area. It’s hard to control the room temperature. It was -9c below and it was a sweltering hot in the room. I had to turn off the AC and open the windows to cool down the room. Rooms a bit tiny for the price they charge. Breakfast was a rip off not worth the price I paid.

When purchasing the tickets online, the cost of the room and the tax was shown. Everything seemed fine until the day we arrived and tried to check-in. We were charged an extra 10% and were told that it was additional tax that is always charged at hotels. When we asked more about it they just gave us vague and incomplete answers. We had nowhere else to stay so we payed. The room was extremely small, the hotel staff were rude, and it was just a bad experience. Two weeks later we received the bill and it was charged under "FOOD". We are not sure what is going on with this hotel, but we would not recommend.

I had a really awesome experience at Shilla Stay Yeoksam. Wonderful service and breakfast. The rooms are very clean and has everything you need. Very efficient room service.
I was able to get a check out time extension which really came in handy because of my tight schedule.
I would recommend Shilla Stay Yeoksam to anyone visiting Seoul
