1. Grand Hyatt Seoul – Gay Friendly Hotel Seoul
Surrounding the 5-star Grand Hyatt Seoul is the nature preserve of Mount Namsan. Featuring a free schedule shuttle bus around the city, the luxurious hotel has its own shopping arcade, outdoor and indoor pools and ice skating rink.
Air-conditioned with heating, the carpeted rooms provide large windows offering views of the city or Mount Namsan. Amenities include a flat-screen satellite/cable TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi.
This hotel is located at the top hill of NamSan, little away from the downtown area, but the rooms with the river views give pretty good scenery. There is also Gyongridan gil nearby with different restaurants and cafes.
Hotel is located on Namsan hill with expansive 270 degrees view over the city. Large well manicured gardens with waterfalls. A 10 minute walk down and you are in the Itaewon area with restaurants & nightlife & an hourly shuttle bus to the Myeondong area gets you close to shopping, palaces and more restaurants
The room is a bit on the smaller size. The work desk was glass and faced the window. The chair was fairly standard and not ergonomic. Therefore, as a work station, this was not conducive to long stretches of work.
There was a small couch in the room with a very odd side table. This with the small size of the room made it very cluttered. The bed itself was fairly comfortable and the controls for the lights etc were easy to use. The TV set was very oddly placed.
The bathroom was correspondingly small and had an washout toilet seat. The shower was decent and the water pressure and temperature were acceptable.
The hotel takes full advantage of its setting, with beautiful views of the city, an Olympic-size outdoor pool, lovely grounds and a peaceful vibe throughout the hotel. Even though the city is a quick ride away, the hotel feels like a quiet retreat. You pretty much have to take a taxi or the hotel shuttle to go anywhere, but it’s a quick ride to the city center and taxis are inexpensive (under $10 for most locations), plentiful and clean.
The breakfast is great with plenty of choices. The evening cocktail hour had such a large selection that it could easily replace dinner.
The hotel has many restaurant choices and a great lobby lounge with live music.
