Visiting Seoul – A City Guide

Both historic and futuristic, Seoul is a welcoming city where ancient temples and grand palaces intermingle with soaring skyscrapers and luxury hotels. Seoul, with its fascinating mix of old and new, is one of the most unique destinations on earth.

Seoul: City Layout & Top Attractions

Seoul is a sprawling metropolis bisected by the Han River. To the north, the historic Jongno district is home to magnificent imperial residences like Gyeongbokgung Palace and the galleries and handicraft boutiques of the Insa-dong area.

For proximity to cultural landmarks like Namdaemun Gate and the Myeong-dong’s buzzing shopping and street-food scene, redeem your IHG® Rewards Club points for a stay at Holiday Inn Express Seoul Euljiro.

Itaewon is a lively dining and nightlife area with a distinctly international vibe. The genteel, family-friendly residential neighborhood of Seongbuk-dong is close to Samcheong-dong’s indie art galleries and the popular hiking trails of Bukhansan National Park.

South of the river, stylish Gangnam offers fine dining, luxe shopping on Apgujeong Rodeo Street and uber-cool clubs around Gangnam Station. 

Eating Out in Seoul

For local food, vendors at busy Gwangjang Market offer tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) and kimbap (seaweed rice rolls). The market’s biggest draw is Jeon Alley, where competing chefs present their unique takes on the fried pancake.

Noryangjin Fish Market is a haven for seafood lovers, who can have professional chefs turn their ingredients into surprising sushi or spicy stews. All around the city, hole-in-the-wall makgeolli (rice wine) bars are the place to try Korea’s oldest traditional liquor.

A more upmarket option is Jungsik, a restaurant serving molecular Korean cuisine that’s earned its chef, Jungsik Yim, a global reputation.

Shopping in Seoul

A great way to get to know Seoul’s traditional heart is by exploring a market like Dongdaemun, a vast cluster of malls and speciality retailers where fashionistas snap up the latest Korean trends.

Apgujeong is home to many of the city’s film stars and known as Seoul’s Beverly Hills, with its Rodeo Street modelled after Los Angeles’ Rodeo Drive.

Redeem your IHG® Rewards Club points at InterContinental® Grand Seoul Parnas, and you can treat yourself to luxury shopping at contemporary Parnas Mall.

Nightlife in Seoul

In Seoul, you’ll find everything from K-pop venues in former parking garages to the Korea National Opera and concerts at Zaha Hadid’s iconic Dongdaemun Design Plaza.

Itaewon is a lively neighbourhood filled with sports bars, sleek cocktail lounges and international cuisine, from elegant bistros to friendly Mediterranean restaurants and laidback noodle joints.

Home to exclusive Seoul hotels, Gangnam draws a well-heeled crowd with its VIP vibe and ritzy nightlife. In contrast, Hongdae is the stomping ground of Seoul’s young and creative and has some of the best live-music venues in the city.

Leisure in Seoul

Thinking about visiting Gangnam? Hotel guests are minutes from Samneung Park, a UNESCO site, with the royal burial grounds of several Joseon-era kings and queens.

Ancient Bongeunsa Temple offers tea ceremonies and the chance to make traditional lotus lanterns.

Latest Seoul Hotel Reviews

A great hotel that cannot be missed
By pcdyck
There were times that I wanted to stay at this hotel in the past, but ended up for various reasons I chose other IHG hotels. Finally I was able to spend a night trying out this hotel, and I was [More] surprised by the overall high quality of this Holiday Inn hotel. This made me regret so much that I have not chosen to stay here when I was in Seoul before. There is an Airport Limousine Bus stop right outside the hotel, and it takes a pretty short time to travel between the hotel and the airport. By looking at the map, I got a feeling that there is nothing around the hotel, but ended up I found many different restaurants. Even more, I found a supermarket and Lotte Mart within walking distance. The hotel staffs could speak good English, and they were friendly and welcoming enough to provide an excellent onboarding experience as a whole. The front desk lady was obviously well-trained to handle guest check-in and check-out processes, and I would say she has done a much better job than what should be required for the Holiday Inn level of quality. The guest room was new and clean (because this is a relatively new hotel). The view was still good because the construction sites nearby have not yet blocked the view of the Incheon Bridge. The interior design of the guest room was modern and elegant, which actually I would say it is much more better than what I would expect from the Holiday Inn brand. One thing to improve, might be to add a clearer sign at the subway station, pointing the guests to the right floor for check-in, because the front desk of this hotel is not on the 1st floor. Overall I would give full marks to this hotel and the staffs, and this has been the most satisfying stay experience of mine at the IHG properties in the recent 2 years. If I have chosen this hotel for my past stays in South Korea, I would have been much happier. Definitely I recommend this hotel, and it will be my first consideration when I go to Seoul again. [Less]
New hotel, excellent hardware

Convenient store next to the hotel but it’s far away from the airport (30min by airport bus and the last bus is 10.22pm) and the city centre (i took 1.45hrs on underground to go to my next hotel [More] which is in Meyong-Dong) Spacious room, every staff is helpful with good English. [Less]

Great Service
By holiday
Arrived with a warm welcome but the staff did not realise I was an IHG member and there was no lane for member check in. All front desk staff are well mannered and helpful. Room was comfortable but a [More] bit stuffy, luckily I could open the window to air the room. [Less]
By poppipat
Everything was excellent except some cigarette smell in the NON-SMOKING ROOM. I could sense some smell on the first day I entered to my room. However, the following days, the smell faded out. There [More] could be some problem with indoor ventilation system or my room, in the worse case, was not on the NON-SMOKING FLOOR. [Less]
nice hotel very friendly staff
By Siu B
we arrived the hotel a bit late at around 9.15 pm. The lady at check in was very efficient and everything well prepared for our arrival including the room set up with an extra bed. At check in, we [More] mentioned about Korean beef barbecue and when we asked the concierge after we freshened ourselves in our room, they already prepared a map where we could go at 9.30 pm nearby the hotel. Everyone was very helpful and friendly during our stay. [Less]

This hotel is the perfect place to stay. From the moment you pull up until you check out, the staff ensure your every need is beyond addressed. The breakfast is phenomenal. The rooms are perfect - [More] that’s all I can say. It’s the only place I will stay when work takes me to Seoul. [Less]
