We just got back from a very pleasant stay at the Millennium Hilton Seoul. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation and the top four floors are currently closed, including the executive lounge. There is a room at the lower lobby level that serves as lounge now, and breakfast is served in the Cilantro restaurant at the lobby level (06.00 to 10.30). Alcohol was served in the lounge between 17.30 and 20.30 and there was also some food on offer at that time, substantial enough to serve as dinner for some guests. The lounge itself stayed open until 22.00. The KAL limousine bus was a very convenient way of getting to and from ICN, with departures every 30 minutes and a bus stop right in front of the hotel. Tickets for the return could be bought in the reception. The location was fine for a first time visitor, and seemed much better (and more central) than the other Hilton in Seoul. We like walking, and moved about on foot and in Seoul’s inexpensive taxis. The hotel seemed to be almost full, in part because four floors were closed. A surprising touch was the provision of a laptop and a local mobile phone in the room. We had no use for the phone, so I didn’t make a note of the prices. In addition to the provided laptop we used our own computer and iPhones, and all charges had been removed from our bill before we checked out. Finally I want to say that the staff was outstanding in everything except their understanding of English, which sometimes left something to be desired and which caused them great embarrassment.
