Afternoon Tea at Signiel Seoul


After attending a seminar at COEX Conference Center last month, my Korean friend and I visited The Lounge at Signiel Seoul, a 6-star luxury hotel located at levels 79 to 101 of Lotte World Tower. I’ve been there many times since its opening in mid 2017 and I love going back for an afternoon tea or early evening cocktails with my husband or my friends.

The Lounge is located at the 79th floor near the hotel reception desk. They don’t take reservations so a wait is always expected. The place is usually packed in the afternoon, but we were lucky to get a table immediately at 5:00 PM on a Saturday. Woot!

Annyeong! Teas and complimentary bread were served first. Oops! Only one left in the picture. Not so hungry. :-p
Royal Tea for my friend and Earl Grey for me
A party for two.. yey!
Bon Appetit!
No more space at the table so we put other things on the side. Hehe.





I really love the ambiance and the view from up there. I must say that the reputation of Signiel Seoul as the new superstar of the city skyline has been remarkably matched by the staff’s 6-star service. They were so nice and attentive to my requests. With impeccable service, it’s a uniquely pleasurable way to spend an afternoon at The Lounge.
