The Shilla Stay hotel in Gwanghwamun opened in fall 2015 with the business traveler in mind. Designed by Lissoni Associates, minimal and matte decor projected a calm and Eurocentric vibe throughout the hotel. Onsite, you can find common work spaces, a gym, and a restaurant opened from breakfast to dinner. My main reason for booking this hotel is its central location to three subway lines and many attractions in Seoul. I also loved my chic room with views of the dizzying city lights at night and the misty mountains at dawn.
