Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Notes

The health club facilities at the Grand Hilton Seoul used to be open to people who weren't staying at the hotel; this is apparently no longer the case. The club is open to registered guests and health club members only. [January, 2018]

Facility Reviews

This is a pleasant pool to swim in, very clean, comfortable temperature, natural light along one side of the building, and generally quite quiet. The gent's changing rooms are cleaned regularly and the showers are very good. The main drawback is that the Hotel / pool are very far from the CBD and even further from the Kangnam or Yoido districts where many people work.
The non-guest price is high, but it's a great pool.
[January, 2015]
The description of "three lanes" is oversimplified: the lanes are double or triple the usual width, so it's common for three to five swimmers to split a lane. The lanes are separated by lane dividers, but there are no lane markers or other guides to help when splitting lanes, so it can get a bit chaotic when busy. The center lane was marked for circle swimming (at least today) but that doesn't work with widely different swim strokes and speeds, so today everyone was splitting. The pool was a bit crowded from 10:30 to 11:15 AM, there were only a few people from 11:15 to 11:45 AM, and I was the only one from 11:45 to noon, when I left.
