About Stanford Seoul

Set in the modern Sangam Digital Media City (DMC) district, this upscale hotel with a business-friendly vibe is eight miles west of Seoul city centre. An indoor pool, fitness centre, and sauna are highlights of Stanford Seoul.

Relaxed guest rooms with neutral tones and carpeted floors offer desks and flat-screen TVs. Mini-fridges and hot-drink facilities are included, as well. Upgraded accommodations provide seating areas; some boast meeting tables.

Guests can treat themselves to massage and spa treatments, and practice their swing on an indoor golf simulator. There's also an on-site convenience store and public-use PCs. Parking and Wi-Fi are gratis.

Buffet-style meals and a-la-carte options are offered in chic Café Stanford. Live music and big-screen sports action are on hand in the convivial Manhattan Bar & Grill.

Positive Reviews

Very convenient setting

Reviews are full of comments reporting favourable opinions about the hotel's location. Guests like the fact they can stroll to the World Cup Stadium, and walk to the train station with relative ease (though there's also a free shuttle bus). Having a wide array of dining options in the area is deemed a big plus point too. Being able to reach the airport in 30 minutes tops things off nicely.

Excellent leisure and fitness facilities

The vast majority of visiting guests who make use of this hotel's leisure and fitness facilities are thoroughly impressed by their experiences. The gym is many reviewers' highlight. Evidently, it is huge and very well-equipped.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast needs some variation

Although guests are generally pretty happy with the overall standard of the buffet breakfast laid on here, many diners feel it would benefit from a little variety. Being greeted by the exact same offerings each morning is, reviewers say, rather uninspiring.

Guest rooms are a little tight

It has been noted that, while the accommodations at this hotel are pleasant enough in most respects, they don't afford much in the way of space. Some travellers, particularly those staying for prolonged periods of time, say the rooms feel too restrictive to be truly comfortable.
