Stayed here for a quick business trip and found the staff to be very helpful in helping me arrange transportation and locating my customer's address. The only surprise was toothbrushes were not included but other than that, I thought the hotel was in a convenient location to the subway, quiet and clean rooms, with very good breakfast buffet selection.

We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with the service and amenities offered at the hotel. As a platinum member, I received an upgraded room on the premium floor (room was nicely appointed although a bit small). The premium lounge has a nice happy hour. The breakfast buffet in the main restaurant is excellent with a lot of choice.... More

One small remark, the bath tub seems outdated and ready for replacement for a shower cabin. During meetings also had lunch twice and it was good. First day Korean... More

This hotel is perfect for a business traveler in Seoul. Close to plenty of nice restaurants and has a great gym. One of the best things was how simple the door to door service of the airport bus. I would stay here again.

The Hotel seems very new and has an indoor waterfall in the Lobby. The rooms a very new and comfortable with a lot of very usefull things like a free mobile charger, a Nespresso machine,... The view from my room was also very nice. It's very Close to the bars and Restaurants in Gangnam. I would definitely recommend this place.

This Hotel works on all fronts. The rooms are good, the food is fine, and, most importantly, the staff are very pleasant while being efficient. Unfortunately the lobby bar no longer stays open in the evening which is a loss. Strongly recommended.

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.
