The hotel is located 2 blocks are from the famous Gangnam area. Not more than 10 minutes walking distance. It is quite a old hotel with a very 1990's façade and interior. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and pragmatic. It has all the necessities. There is a wide spread of food for breakfast from traditional Korean food, modern Korean food...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 January 2017 via mobile

I was in Seoul for several days for a conference at this hotel so elected to stay there. I have used Novotel before and found them a little soulless - clean but clinical. This one was much better than I expected. The room wasn't large but was well appointed and very modern, with a beautifully set up bathroom. There are...

Overall pretty happy with the room and the facilities but the trouble started when ordering two small cakes and coffee from the lobby lounge. Didn't bother to ask how much was the coffee as even in Korea I never expected to pay more than $7 for a hot latte maximum. When we got our bill it was 38000 won for...

We use this hotel as preferred hotel for the company travel. It's okay but not very lively. Clean, okay food, breakfast they do a nice job. No showers in the rooms, only oldfashioned bathtubs. Strange combination of Korean interior with a replica of the Arc de Triomph.

I had a great stay at this hotel. I'm an accor member and usually stay at the higher end hotels but this hotel could teach most hotels a thing or two about service. From the moment I checked into the hotel the staff could not have been more helpful. A huge thank you goes out to Sonia on the executive...

As you may see - I rarely write reviews. I have to say it was extremely pleasant and refreshing to have the Hotel staff be extremely helpful, and always thinking ahead for us. From Maxime who greeted us, extremely helpful during the 2 days..to Jia and Sophia at the Executive lounge who not only made us feel so genuinly welcome,...

The room is fully renovated with high standards of quality. The bed is very comfortable and the room is well isolated from street noise. The cleaners do an excellent job in tiding up the room. The same quality of service is in the restaurants of the hotel and reception. I had dinner both at the buffet and the bistro. The...

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighbourhood Profile
Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
