Overall Good Experience. Perfect hotel for staying one or Two days those who have work in US embassy. Embassy is on walkable distance from Hotel.

Good room, service and location.
Th Shill hotel is located in a strategic center of Gwanghuamun. The D tower and the US Embassy are only a 5 minute walk. I chose this hotel because we had to do our son’s citizenship application. So this was perfect for the location and price. Parking is easy, there is a Starbucks next door and good restaurants surrounding the property - just go to D Tower for food and shopping. The only problem was that the lobby is on the 8th floor - it’s a bit weird. Family rooms are a bit small but does the job if you are there for 1 day.

My room was slightly dirty and there were some stains up the towels so I wasn't sure if they were clean. The staff was friendly and very polite. :) The breakfast was kind of expensive but good food.
