Seoul Hotel Insider
Seoul, the second largest metropolitan area in the world today, is a fascinating, ancient city with a history over 2,000 years old. It is one of the most popular destinations in East Asia, and boasts the most visited national park in the world at Mt. Bukhan, the longest bridge fountain with Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, and five UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Furthermore, it’s a technology powerhouse, home to dozens of Fortune Global 500 companies, including Samsung and LG. With all these impressive claims to fame, it’s no wonder there are over 380 hotels in Seoul available to accommodate the incoming floods of Koreans and international visitors alike.

Hotels in Seoul
Seoul hotels are classified into one of five categories: super deluxe (five-star), deluxe (five-star), first class (four-star), second class (three-star), and third class (two-star). Hotels above deluxe class usually have a fitness center, sauna, a business center, restaurants and cafes, while lower class hotels vary in their amenities.

Seoul boasts its fair share of luxury hotels (super deluxe and deluxe). Of course, popular chains like the Marriott, Park Hyatt, and Hilton have established locales to offer convenient resting places for business travelers. But local names like the Shilla, Lotte Hotel, and Fraser Suites are also synonymous with premium comfort and top-notch service. Likewise, the whimsical IP Boutique Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind stay with individually decorated rooms and eclectic decor. Plus, each of these world-class hotels is convenient to central city attractions like Seoul City Hall, the Museum of Korea, and Dongdaemun Market.

Luckily, deluxe hotels aren’t the only option in Seoul: the city has plenty of mid-priced and cheap accommodations for those with less interest in Egyptian cotton bedsheets. South Korea is a backpacker hotspot, and hostels like Zaza Backpackers and Hongdae Guesthouse offer a good night’s sleep in the artsy, college part of town. In addition, budget choices like Beewon Guesthouse, Golden Pond Guesthouse, and Hotel Sunbee are charming options in the Insadong region, which is packed with restaurants, art galleries, and traditional tea houses.

Attractions & Environs
There are literally hundreds of things to do in Seoul. If you love food, the city will not disappoint. With an emerging international culinary scene, you don’t have to go far to try kimchi pickles, sesame seed oil, and barbecued beef. Get your fill at street stalls, outdoor markets, and sit-down restaurants all over town, but especially along bustling Myeong-dong Street.

If you’re seeking city action and shopping, you’ll find that hotels like W Times Square, Courtyard Seoul Times Square, and Hill House are conveniently located near shopping meccas like Seoul Times Square, Hongdae, and Namdaemun.

The iconic Gyeongbokgung Palace is not to be missed, and Namsan Park is right nearby, where you can take the cable car up to N Seoul Tower. You can set your homebase at lodging options like the Metro Hotel and Hotel President, both of which offer comfortable amenities and quality service within walking distance.

A bit further outside the city center, the beautiful people of Gangnam are a wonder to behold, and not far from there, families can play at Lotte World, South Korea’s local alternative to Disneyland.
