Disliked: Cleanliness
Lobby area is too tight for check-in. Found a man’s shorts behind cushions which means no one had cared to clean the couch. There are way too many people for intagram pictures in the swimming pool area. Overall, It’s not the right hotel to have a peace of mind.

My husband and I booked Sofitel as a way to treat ourselves for our 3-year wedding anniversary. Right as you walk in you are greeted by staff and led to the front desk to check-in. We had some hiccups in the beginning as we were told our room did not have a bathtub which was a bit upsetting because we weren't aware of those details when booking the accommodation. Ayla who listened to our frustration helped resolve the issue which we were very thankful for. The hotel was super clean, the room was a nice, friendly staff, and great restaurants the bonus was the Lotte Mall right beside us which was great to browse. The Olympic Park is close by so we took the bikes that we can rent and took them out for a stroll. I would very much recommend this hotel if you are planning to stay in Seoul.

Great staff and amazing breakfast
All the staff members were very friendly and professional. Room condition and bedding were superb. Breakfast was very diverse with a wide range of hot dishes, fruits, bakery etc. One major downside : you need to reserve/book the swimming pool time in advance, and moreover, each slot is only 70 minutes. Very disappointing considering you're only allowed 1 slot per day. 70 minutes is definitely not enough to give a playful time to the kids. It would be somewhat understandable if it's during the peak season weekend, but not on weekdays booking with only a handful of people using the pool.
