I have stayed here at least a dozen times. I love the location, the restaurants in the area, subway stop right next to the hotel. I always spring for the "privilege room", which gets you a higher level room floor with a view, breakfast, and evening food and drinks with all day tea/coffee service. Front desk staff are always very...

Rooms are not very big, but are very comfortable and have many amenities to make your staying better. Decoration of the room may look a little annoying, but it´s nice (remember you are in...

The un-cozy feeling could be due to just being in South Korea. I found that the city was hustling and bustling but didn't really feel welcoming to visitors. Oh well, I could be off though. The hotel is located around a bunch of stuff (Probably because it's in Gangnam). The rooftop resturant was too expensive. They have a breakfast buffet...

This hotel is conveniently located in the center of Gangnam and very close to subway station. The facilities and the rooms are okay, can't say I was impressed. But overall, it's a good value for money as this hotel has reasonable room rates for the area.

There is an overpowering smell of cheap air freshener as you enter the hotel. Check in staff were decidedly not friendly, maybe I was interrupting their chat on KakaoTalk... Elevator was slow, my room on 16F was on the small side but adequate. However it was not clean with fluff balls around the doors. Clothes storage is barely adequate for...

Our flight came in early and we arrived at 8am. It's understandable the hotel can't get 5 rooms ready for early check in, but they gradually started to make the rooms ready between 10-111AM. In the meeting we relaxed and waited for our room in the Privileged Waiting Lounge, just off the Front Desk. I fell asleep on the comfortable...

The room was very clean and nice. The staff was friendly and helpful, even one of the staff helped me finding the information I needed. Although I only stayed for 1 night I would like to come back again.

We stayed in this hotel for 7 nights and were very impressed with the attentive and friendly staff and the excellent value for money breakfast.

Decent hotel but showing lots of signs of wear. Rooms are small and fairly basic. Exercise area is decent with four threddmill, a few bikes and free weights. Solid breakfast. Staff were friendly. No point in upgrading from basic room.

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.
