Review: Four Seasons Seoul, South Korea


Book A Stay

The Four Seasons opened Four Seasons Seoul, South Korea, in October 2015.


Four Seasons Seoul is located in the Korean capital’s Central Business District, steps from Seoul’s most venerable historic sites and neighborhoods. This hotel puts you right in the heart of South Korea’s pulsing capital city. Go sightseeing at nearby Bukchon Hanok Traditional Village or Sejong Cultural Center 5, shop the high-end boutiques in the Myeong-Dong Shopping District, or explore the beautiful grounds of Gyeongbokgung Palace, located just a few blocks away.

Seoul provides an excellent public-transit system. From the airport, you can take Seoul Subway Line 5 in the direction of Sangil-dong or Macheon stations and disembark at Gwanghwamun Station. Our Hotel is just a three-minute walk away.

Style & Character

Ringed by verdant mountains and dotted with grand, historic palaces and modern, glass-and-steel structures, Seoul is a dynamic capital city that is both deeply traditional and forward-thinking. You’ll see what we mean when you look outside your room’s floor-to-ceiling windows.

This contemporary Gwanghwamun Hotel brings the Four Seasons experience to Korea for the first time, inviting you to indulge in complete serenity at the urban Spa, and take a dip in the year-round pool..


Four Seasons Seoul offers 317 guestrooms and suites, each designed to be a “private sanctuary” for relaxation. A new, fully customizable Four Seasons Bed is in every room, and features such as motorized window coverings which allow guests to choose between complete darkness, veiled light, or crystal-clear views of Seoul.

Service & Facilities

There’s a fitness club with three pools, an indoor golf experience, and a juice bar available to guests and local members. Another focal point is the on-site spa and Korean sauna. Signature treatments include the Miyeok Slim-Steam Wrap and the Um Yang Ritual, a botanical cure using herbs found in the ancient healing bible Dongui Bogam. Geared toward local professionals and business travelers, the Spa + Snack menu combines 30-minute mini-treatments with an express lunch.
