Lonely Planet review
A name like this raises expectations, but they are all met at Seoul’s most luxurious hotel. The antiques and wood panelling create a stately, genuinely European ambience, and from the magnificent lobby to the well-appointed rooms and immaculate spa, opulence and no-expense-spared are the twin themes. A buffet of delights is doled out at Familia.
Our independent authors have visited The Imperial Palace and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Gangnam & Jamsil.
