Somerset Palace Seoul


The Somerset Palace Seoul is near the largest palace in the capital city, Gyeongbokgung Palace. Its location is ideal for those who seek both homey comforts and urban amenities, not to mention easy access to the magnificent palace, one of Seoul’s flagship tourist spots.

The 18-story residential facility is in the heart of Seoul’s diplomatic, business and administrative district. It is within a walking distance from must-see tourist attractions in the capital city, including Insa-dong and Gwanghwamun. It is also only minutes away from the myriad of restaurants and cafes in the Jongno area. The location also provides quick access to three different subway lines through Anguk, Jonggak and Gwanghwamun stations.

The Somerset Palace prides itself on upscale, family-friendly apartments, ranging in size from studios and one-bedroom apartments, to two-bedroom and penthouse suites. Most rooms have a fully equipped kitchen for residents to enjoy their own home cooked meals, top-of-the-line communication cables and high-speed Internet to meet any business needs.

The premier apartment also has a billiard room, a sauna, a lounge, a fully equipped fitness center and a children’s playroom. Guests hoping to find time to recover from fatigue can do so by taking a dip in a large, rooftop outdoor pool or even take a stroll around the property’s rooftop garden with a variety of fruit trees, flowers and other plants.

The Somerset Palace is managed by The Ascott Limited, a Singapore-based company that has grown to become one of the world’s largest internationally serviced residence owner-cum-operators. Its network spans more than 80 cities in more than 20 countries.
