An unforgettable experience awaits at The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul. 

Under the glimmering light of a majestic, four-tiered chandelier, surrounded by sparkling marble architectural elements, lavish, classically inspired décor, and priceless works of art, you may imagine for a moment that you have been transported to an 18th-century European palace. Yet, as a friendly greeter dressed in traditional hanbok attire welcomes you with a warm “anyong haseyo,” you remember that you are in a place unlike any other, The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul, a luxury hotel near Gangnam Station.

Perhaps more than in any other hotels in downtown Seoul, Korea’s rich traditional past and dynamic international present comingle to create a fascinating and beautiful fusion of design, style and experiential elements. Inside your peaceful guest room, muted earth tones are accented by vivid silk fabrics, echoing the textiles used in the Korean costumes of our hotel greeters. As you jot down a note on your in-room stationery, you pause for a moment, noticing the unusual insignia imprinted upon it. This stately symbol, you discover, is known as the giwa and represents the iconic Korean roof tile, whose presence still dots much of the Seoul skyline today. It is just one of the myriad facts you will uncover while exploring the uniquely beautiful city of Seoul.

Frequented by Korea’s elite, The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul is conveniently situated among the fashionable shops, cafes and luxury hotels in Gangnam, an upscale neighborhood in the heart of downtown Seoul, where business, culture and entertainment thrive.
