Comfortable luxury at Somerset Palace Seoul

Somerset Palace Seoul sits beside picturesque Gyeongbok Palace in the heart of Seoul’s business and financial district.

Popular restaurants, shopping arcades and entertainment outlets are packed along the nearby Insa-dong and Jongno District areas. Other parts of Seoul are easily accessible, as the hotel is only minutes away from the Anguk, Jonggak and Gwanghwamun subway stations.

Designed with families in mind, Somerset understands the importance of keeping a balance between work and family life. Whether guests find themselves in Korea for work, relaxation or to spend time with family, Somerset Palace Seoul strives to provide all the necessary services and resources to help them make the most of their stay abroad.

Somerset’s luxurious, family-friendly apartments range in size from studios and one- or two-bedrooms up to penthouses. For traveling executives and their families, each room is designed to be a modern living environment filled with cutting-edge communication and entertainment facilities. With a fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining room, guests can experience luxury and comfort at the same time during their stay.

Each room is wired with high-speed Wi-Fi and includes a writing desk, which means that the hotel room can be transformed into a home office as needed by the guest. Well-equipped leisure and sports facilities, such as a fitness center, billiards room, sauna, residents’ lounge and children’s playroom are also available to enhance the quality of the guest’s stay.

On the hotel’s roof is a rooftop garden - a rare site to be found 18 floors above ground. Part of the “going green” trend, the garden is filled with a carefully selected collection of flowers, plants and fruit trees. The vegetation is chosen so that the garden maintains its greenery and color throughout the entire year.

For families who stay in the hotel while preparing to relocate to Korea, Somerset Palace Seoul provides all the information needed to help them settle down into their new area as quickly as possible, including help finding the right schools or other services they need. This program, called the “Heartware” service, provides extensive local knowledge tailored to each guest’s taste and lifestyle.

Somerset Palace Seoul is managed by The Ascott Limited, a member of CapitaLand. It is the largest international, serviced residence owner-operator with more than 250 properties across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Gulf region. It operates three award-winning brands, Ascott, Citadines and Somerset, in over 90 cities spanning more than 25 countries.
