History buffs and captains of industry choose this centrally located hotel, which is walking distance from Korea’s political and corporate halls of power (both modern and ancient). Built in 1914, the hotel has the longest history of any in the city, but a complete renovation in 2004 has brought the property into the modern age. The 453 guest rooms now include chic curvilinear settees and padded headboards, as well as up-to-the-minute features like hypoallergenic carpets and electronic in-room checkout (no reception desk visit required). The Ninth Gate restaurant is a choice venue for Continental cuisine, and the wine bar is one of the best stocked in the city.
