Hotel classifications in Korea
Hotels in Korea are classified according to the number of stars they qualify for from five-star to one-star, with five-star being the highest rating. (classification modified as of January, 2015.)
Generally, a standard room in a five-star hotel costs approximately 200,000-350,000 won (use of extra services and facilities not included), and a deluxe room costs 400,000-500,000 won. However, these are subject to change depending on the season and special occasions.
Major hotels in the five-star category offer complimentary breakfast and wireless internet in addition to access to a fitness center, sauna, business center, restaurants and cafes. All Hotels add a 10% VAT and 10% service charge. (*Note: service charge percentage may differ by each property.)
