10/10 Exceptional

Somerset Palace is a comfortable hotel in an excellent location. The staff spoke perfect English and were very helpful. The room had a small kitchen which was great for light meals in the room. There is also a washer/dryer for cleaning laundry. The hotel is easy walking distance to Gyeonbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces, as well as Bukchon Hanok Village. The Jogyesa Temple is right behind the hotel and worth a quick visit. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying for a first time visit in Seoul.
