Why We Love This Hotel
Access to Seoul’s Top Attractions: Signiel Seoul is located within easy access of Seoul’s most striking examples of modern architecture, as well as its notable historic sites like ancient Buddhist temples. The LOTTE World Tower and Mall itself, which ranks among the top 10 tallest buildings worldwide and houses Signiel Seoul, is worth exploring in its own right. The Olympic Park facility and well-manicured Songpa Naru Park are also nearby tourist attractions recommended by the hotel.
Expertise and Attention to Detail: As a landmark hotel representing Korea for the LOTTE Hotels & Resorts brand, Signiel Seoul offers the ultimate in high-end hospitality for luxury travelers. The hotel’s operations are backed by the LOTTE brand’s more than half a century of experience in the industry.
Unforgettable Fine Dining: Between STAY – the brainchild of multi-Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alleno – and other offerings like the Michelin-starred Korean restaurant BICENA, some of Seoul’s top food and beverage options are housed within the LOTTE World Tower.

The Salon de Signiel is exclusive to hotel guests and designed to resemble a classic European library. Guests commonly enjoy coffee or tea while enjoying views of the Han River, and there are also separate meeting rooms.
The in-house sauna facility is home to both a dry and wet sauna, and an ice fountain – the latter of which helps to lower elevated body temperature and boost blood circulation. The negative ions emitted from the sauna stones are said to be beneficial to overall health.

Located on the 107th floor, this members-only restaurant amazes with its views alone, but the real star is the cooking of renowned Chef Kyungok Yeo. Fine wines, rare whiskies and cognacs, and expertly prepared sushi are also available in addition to the private dining selections of the head chef.
The hallmark culinary option at Signiel Seoul, STAY features the masterful cuisine of Chef Yannick Alleno, who previously operated two three-star Michelin restaurants in France.
