The “Conrad Seoul” is located in South Korea, so the majority of its guests are probably Koreans. I have found various reviews written by Koreans about the “Conrad Seoul”, and I would like to share some of the best reviews with you.”

3.1. Best Reviews 1: “Recommended staycation in Seoul, rooms and Zest breakfast at Conrad Seoul Hotel in Yeouido, a 5-star hotel!

Source: https://blog.naver.com/hjk8427_/223198821241

Summary of the Blog Post

I recently enjoyed a Seoul staycation at the Conrad Seoul Hotel in Yeouido with my mom. The hotel was truly luxurious, and the Happy Hour at the Executive Lounge was a highlight. The abundant food and drinks made our time there quite enjoyable.

The hotel room was spacious and comfortable, and the best part was the stunning view of the Han River. We had breakfast at the Zest Restaurant, where we savored a wide variety of dishes and drinks. The options included Korean and Western cuisine, as well as desserts, so there was something for everyone’s taste.

Furthermore, the hotel staff were exceptionally friendly. As Diamond members, we received complimentary beverages and snacks, and the service provided by the staff left a lasting impression.

I highly recommend the Conrad Seoul Hotel in Yeouido as an excellent choice for a Seoul staycation. The only drawback was the slightly higher price, but despite that, it was a truly wonderful experience.

3.2. Best Reviews 2: “Seoul Staycation at Conrad Seoul Hotel!”

Source: https://blog.naver.com/viphsh88/223207810690

Summary of the Blog Post

Feeling exhausted and in need of a break, my friend and I decided to take a day off and relax at a hotel. However, choosing the right place for our staycation was not an easy task. We had to consider factors like price, location, and personal preferences, and researching multiple hotels was exhausting.

Conrad Seoul Hotel, a 5-star luxury hotel, was a perfect choice. Located near IFC Mall, The Hyundai Seoul, and Yeouido Hangang Park, it was an ideal spot for our staycation.

The hotel’s lobby exuded luxury, from its high ceilings to the grand staircase. We arrived slightly earlier than check-in time but were fortunate to check in right away. The room was impeccable, as expected from a 5-star hotel. It even had a TV in the bathroom mirror!

Our room on the 23rd floor offered a stunning view of the Han River with no tall buildings obstructing the sight. The clear weather allowed us to enjoy the beautiful view thoroughly.

One of the most surprising features was the bathroom, equipped with a TV and a separate remote control. It was a first for me! The room also provided Nespresso capsule coffee and a Dyson hairdryer, while the view from the window was breathtaking.

After resting in our room, we headed to Pulse8, Conrad Seoul’s swimming pool on the 8th floor. The pool was spacious, with a depth of around 120-130cm. Since it was a weekday, there were only a few people, allowing us to enjoy the pool without crowding.

The poolside offered a fantastic backdrop for photos, with a panoramic city view. We had a blast swimming and taking pictures while soaking in the sun.

Feeling hungry after swimming, we decided to dine at Atrio, a restaurant connected to the hotel. We had a 15,000 KRW F&B credit to spend, so we indulged ourselves with multiple menu items, including Margherita pizza and fried eggplant with a tomato sauce. Both dishes paired perfectly with beer or wine.

With the easy access to Yeouido Station and the hotel’s luxurious amenities, we didn’t have to venture outside at all during our stay. We shopped and explored until the night fell.

Back in our room, the cityscape at night was a sight to behold. We ordered room service, indulging in a delicious chocolate cake and pizza from Atrio while enjoying late-night conversations.

The following morning, we couldn’t resist trying ZEST, the breakfast buffet at Conrad Seoul. Although it wasn’t included in our package, ZEST was famous for its variety of options, including a delightful salad tree and classic breakfast items.

The buffet included bacon, sausages, hash browns, cereal, and a variety of beverages. The diverse food options pleasantly surprised us, and even though I’m not a big eater in the morning, I ended up eating more than I expected.

5. Lowest Price Analysis

I will finally analyze the most important category in hotel reviews, which is the price.

I will compare the lowest price results provided by the most famous hotel price comparison websites, “HotelsCombined,” “Sky Scanner,” and “Trivago,” in order to identify the place that offers the best price.

Lowest price search criteria: 1-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday, 1 room (for 2 guests), excluding breakfast(If breakfast is included in the accommodation conditions, the price goes up a lot).

5.1. “HotelsCombined” Price Comparison

Conrad Seoul: lowest price on hotelscombined

The lowest price search result on HotelsCombined is $299 for a 1-night stay. This price is based on booking through “Booking.com”.

5.2. “Sky ScannerPrice Comparison

Conrad Seoul: lowest price on sky scanner

The lowest price on Sky Scanner is $329 for a 1-night stay when booked through “Hotels.com”, “Booking.com”, “agoda”, and “Vio.com”. All four sites were priced the same at $329.

5.3. “Trivago” Price Comparison

Conrad Seoul: lowest price on Trivago

The lowest price on Trivago is $328 when booked through “Prestigia”.

5.4. Official Conrad Seoul(Hilton) Website

Conrad Seoul
Conrad Seoul: lowest price on the official website

I checked the price of the “Conrad Seoul Official website” as of December 6. Surprisingly, the amount searched on the official website was $284, the lowest compared to other hotel’s lowest price search platforms!!

As a result of the analysis, it was confirmed that the price provided by the “Conrad Seoul official website” offered a much lower accommodation price than the other three price comparison sites. Personally, it was quite an interesting result!

Anyway, it is recommended to consider this information when making a reservation.

Please keep in mind that the lowest prices can vary depending on the dates of stay and the timing of the search.

It is important to note that the current lowest price does not guarantee the lowest price in the future.

“The Lowest Price Analysis” I shared should be used for reference purposes only.

When considering a hotel reservation, I recommend re-searching through price comparison websites at the time of your accommodation planning to utilize the lowest price available at that specific moment.
