Address

23-1 Yeouido-dong Yeongdeungpo-gu

Seoul, South Korea

Hotel Lobby

Our room keys and a Conrad pen.

Twin bed with river view.

The TV screen has just welcomed me ...

The bar was so beautiful. There were 2 complimentary bottles of water also.

The work table allowed us to do some checking of emails. Wifi connection was chargeable although we still could get signal from the free Conrad wifi so we tried to connect to the free one instead.

Bathrobes, slippers and safety box

The Tv remote and computer

Telephone

View of the Han River in the afternoon

Great view of the Han River at night. We could just seat by the window and look at this wonderful view.

Ordering the Shanghai Tang bathroom amenity from the Concierge App was so easy.

Both the Aroma Theraphy and Shanghai Tang skin care products were in the bathroom and between the two, my personal favorite is the Shanghai Tang. The tea scent was just so pleasant and refreshing. For more about their latest products, you can check out this link, Shanghai Tang.

Toilet

The bathtub with the "Conrad Duck".

Watching CNN in the bathroom was cool.

And my favorite part: the washlet "Dobidos".

The shower room.

Morning newspapers

Conclusion

 

March 24, 2014 The Marina Bay Sands used to be my favorite hotel. Well, actually it still is but if they don't have the infinity pool, the Conrad Seoul would definitely be on top of my list. The reception staff were very friendly. We arrived 30 minutes early and she asked us if we could wait until 3pm so we could have a room with a river view or get a room immediately but without the river view. We chose the former and decided to check the IFC mall as the hotel itself is one of the towers at IFC.

 

Their iphone app allowed me to order the Shanghai Tang bathroom amenities instead of the usual Aroma Theraphy. Surprisingly, when we came to our room, both amenities were in the bathroom. Cool!

 

We chose this hotel since we only had 20 hours in Seoul and since we have explored this beautiful city before, we just decided to enjoy the pool and the sauna in the hotel. Needless to say, we really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and hope to be back again next time. Kamsahamnida, Conrad Seoul!!!
