RYSE Seoul

Seoul, South Korea

A jewel in Hongdae


An urban getaway with an unforgettable visual aesthetic in one of the liveliest cultural hotspots in Seoul.

Located in the heart of Hongdae, the area named after the nearby Hongik Art University, the RYSE is influenced by the vibe of its surroundings. The independent music venues, design studios, electric nightlife and street culture all lends inspiration to the hotel. The interiors, created and curated by renowned London designer Michaelis Boyd, combine British refinement with the neon candy box aesthetic of downtown Seoul – bare concrete and dark metal collide with glossy pink flooring and hanging sculptures.

At the hotel, chef David Thompson brings his Michelin-level skills to classic Thai street food, and resident DJs spin eclectic vinyl selections on the rooftop lounge.
