Shilla Stay Seodaemun in Seoul is set to welcome its first guests on May 1.
The 27-storey hotel is the first Shilla Stay-branded property to open in the Gangbuk district and is close to the Seodaemum subway station. It is within close proximity of attractions such as the Seoul Museum of Art, Myeong-dong, Namdaemun, and City Hall.
The 319 guestrooms come in three categories. From the Standard room that measures a comfortable 21sqm, or the more spacious 25sqm Deluxe room, to the ultra-luxurious Grand room at 59sqm, each has been thoughtfully designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni.
The world-renowned architect is responsible for designing all Shilla Stay properties. Lissoni is also responsible for creating the Alrov Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam, Mitsui Garden Ginza in Tokyo, Japan and Studio M Hotel in Singapore.
Facilities at Shilla Stay Seodaemun include a separate second-floor meeting room and a fully equipped fitness centre. There is also a restaurant on the basement floor, which serves a daily buffet consisting of local delicacies and international favourites.
To commemorate its opening, Shilla Stay Seodaemun is offering a special package for guests that stay at the hotel before May 31. This will include complimentary breakfast for two, a welcome gift hamper featuring the Shilla Stay teddy bear, free wifi and access to the fitness centre. Prices start at KRW169,000 (US$157) per night for the weekday stay or KRW229,000 (US$213) for the weekend.
