Seoul is a major destination in Korea with over 1300 popular hotels - that's quite a lot to choose from. We've rounded up top 20 hotels with highest guest ratings from budget to luxury category.
How do we compare hotels? Mostly based on guest ratings. If guest ratings are similar for hotels of the same tier, then we rank a cheaper hotel slightly higher (same quality for lower price is better).
It's pointless to compare hotels in different categories, so we grouped the best hotels by price range, star ratings and proximity to key tourists attractions, such as Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung.
