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.

Sant'Antioco, Italy221 contributions216 helpful votes
Unpleasant Hotel Experience. Not recommended. The online photos and descriptions enticed me to reserve this hotel. However, online listings can be deceiving. The room to accompany 3 adults was the tiniest we have stayed in with barely 200 millimeters between the double bed and the single bed. The first night we complained that the air conditioning was not working. The hotel acknowledged that they knew about this (but did not inform us upon check in) They said to open the window on the 10th floor with busy, noisy street below. This we did but noisy and stifling hot. The Hotel promised it would be repaired the next day but, it was not. 4am in the morning I called American Express Travel services in the USA and they were able to cancel the remaining two nights of our booking and refund us for those two nights. But not the two nights we stayed suffering the night time heat of the room and noise from the open window. Moreover, we were left to make other reservations ourselves with no assistance from the Shilla Hotel or Amex. The second morning there was the smell of raw sewerage as the hotels septic holding tanks were being emptied that morning. An awful stench. Sorry, Sorry, Sorry. Yes, words are so cheap but the experience was most unwelcome.

The hotel was clean. The hotel shower was hot. The bed was very comfortable . The downside was the room was small for three people. We did not eat at the restaurant, because there are so many great places to eat around the hotel. It was a fine hotel. Great location

The Shilla Stay hotel in Seodaemum is a very good option for a week-long visit in Seoul. Well connected to the metro system of the city, staying at this hotel allows us to get (more or less) quickly anywhere in the city (as Seoul is a huge city). The room (and the bed in particular) was comfortable although a bit small (relative to what I am used to in Seoul), and the personnel at the hotel were very helpful (especially when directions are in order) and professional. I would like to mention that there are a bunch of small coffee places and restaurants around, that are worth exploring.

Location is very convenient, right above the Seodaemun Subway station. Some eateries on the oppsite street. Room is quite small (Dobule bed room) and not really well kept, remote control is broken (informed front desk and fixed before i came back). The shower is making some strange noise when i turn on the water. The light before the door kept turning on and off by itself (probably problem with the senor). Check in was efficient and express checkout was available.

Solid stay will definitely come here again. Clean toilet and rooms. Although they are very particular about checking in early. Was quoted 12,000 won for every 1 hour of early check in. Room is clean abit small.

Live in Seoul but wanted to travel Seoul more so we took 2 days off and stayed here for 1 night. We went to Gwanghwamun at the night and pick up some food for dinner. View of the room was cool so we can enjoy the meal with baby. Went to seoul history museum by walk in the morning. PRICE WAS RESONABLE and we enjoyed bathtub much. Morning meal was excellent, too.

탁월한 접근성. 시내 중앙 위치. 적절한 가격. 심디어 앞을 가로막는 공공기관 유리창에 반사된 하늘을 마주하면 가슴이 트임. 맑은 날 특히 진가를 발휘함. An easy access by subway no. 5 & close to many, many attractions. 1 busstop away from the heart of Seoul. Affordable yet relaxing.
