A view of downtown Seoul.

When taking depositions overseas, planning all of the logistics can be stressful and extremely time-consuming, especially for the first-time international traveler. Need a hotel in South Korea and don’t know where to start? We’ve compiled a list of some of the best locations to stay when taking depositions in Seoul, both on the north and south sides of the river. Keep in mind that Seoul is a big city with a lot of traffic. Depending on where you stay, it could take you several hours to get to your deposition location. Choose carefully:

South Side:

  • Hotel Mecure Seoul Ambassador Gangnam Sodowe
    • Great location, offers laundry, fitness centers, with comfortable and uniquely decorated rooms at a reasonable price! There are even nice-sized conference rooms at the hotel that are luxuriously furnished. Room prices range from $101.00 to $150.00USD per night.
  • Best Western Premier Gang Nam Hotel
    • A chain hotel with dependable quality and facilities. Another affordable option with many conference room choices for business meetings and depositions of various sizes. Room prices range from $110.02 to $172.78USD per night.

North Side:

  • Grand Hilton Seoul
    • The Grand Hilton is a bit farther off from Seoul, but its quality is consistently dependable. It’s also convenient if you’d like to take a deposition at the same location you plan to stay. Room prices range from $157.00 to $581.00USD per night.
  • Grand Hyatt Seoul
    • The Hyatt is closer to the river and in the heart of Seoul, with dependability like the Hilton, but the prices are a bit higher. However, this location also has meeting room spaces as well. Room prices range from $210.00 to $411.00USD per night.
  • Holiday Inn Express Seoul Euljiro
    • Though a bit farther out from the heart of Seoul, the Holiday Inn is a great option for those in need of an affordable room near a conference room site. Room prices range from $84.37 to $109.02USD per night.
