As with other Shilla Stay hotels, Italian architect Piero Lissoni designed the Shilla Stay Mapo interiors. Known for his contemporary style, the designer uses a neutral palette, chic furnishings and minimalism to create a warm, welcoming ambience.

The 383 guest rooms are available in three categories –  Standard, Deluxe and Grand. All rooms feature high-quality Hungarian goose-down bedding and Aveda bathroom amenities. To meet the needs of today’s business traveller, Shilla Stay Mapo includes a variety of modern facilities, including a business centre, conference room, and fitness centre.

Culinary connoisseurs can explore the Itaewon district, famous for its restaurants. Seasonal celebrations held nearby include the Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival, Han River Summer Festival, International Firework Festival, and Haneul Park Reed Flower Festival.
