Lotte Hotel

Lotte Hotel, Jung-gu, Seoul
We stayed at the Lotte Hotel on the way back to the US from SE Asia. The Lotte is one of the oldest large hotels in Seoul, S Korea. It has been known to be one of the best hotels in town for more than 75 years. With some very nice upgrades and benefits, this hotel provides the most nicest stay for all every type of traveler.

Club Room
When we arrived, we were ushered to the club floor for check in. So Nice. The Lotte  has much to offer. The location is prime! Right in the middle of Myeong dong and at Lotte Department Store.It’s in the center of the town and well connected to the entire city via the Metro. Hotel intakes up the whole block with the Lotte Mall, Lotte Market and Food court on the lower Level. It is in the Myeong dong area (UNESCO heritage) which is the happening shopping district of Seoul. It is in walking distance to city hall, the Cheonggyecheon river project and many historic, old Korean palaces and museums.

Lotte Club Lounge on 31st Floor
Our Club Room was cozy and very close to  the club lounge, which offered delicious food and drink from 6am to 9pm. The room was well equipped with the most modern Bathroom ever. The Toto Neorest toilet was an unbelievable model. Completely automated. The seat opened and closed by a button along with a warmed seat and a warm water cleansing feature that was fantastic. The shower was wonderful too. Powerful and hot with many water jets all over the place. Every thing in the room itself was mechanized from the curtains, lighting, temperature etc, including free fast Wi-Fi. What a super place to stay.

$90.00USD Musk Melons
The entire Lotte staff was always ready to assist and help with any issue or need. Loved the Sauna, Gym, lounge, etc, It was well equipped and they even had warm clean gym clothes and bathing suits for guests to use. Designed very well.

Downstairs Lounge Drinks and Classical Music
The restaurants at the Lotte ranged from very high quality Korean and Japanese food to the Michelin starred Pierre Gagnaire à séoul for rich french food which was very tasty.  Another benefit of a club room is 20% off any of the restaurants at the Lotte. That’s not even mentioning the unrivaled food court in the basement. Very good and very expensive food market too. This hotel is very, very good.

Drinks at the Lounge
This was a beautiful hotel. Wonderful accommodations. Great restaurants. Lounges with entertainment. Great location for shopping! Nonstop shopping! Close to the subway and all amenities. We would definitely stay here again. Wonderful hotel.

Highly recommended!
