I had a terrible time finding a hotel that wasn't booked for a weekend stay-over before a business trip in August. Finally, I found the Tria on AsiaRooms.com and booked a room for a little over $100 usd per night. Was I ever impressed! The room was immaculate, stylish and spacious, especially the bathroom. Great bed and the hotel is quiet to boot. When I went over to the Hyatt near Itae-won for the business part of my trip, it actually felt like a step down in comfort and amenities, and it was much louder.
The big knock against the Tria is its location, but thanks to a reviewer on booking.com, I knew how to get there. Just take the KAL bus to the Renaissance Hotel, walk around to the back and go down an alley until you see the sign for the Tria -- about 100 meters in all. Pretty easy to find if you know where to go.
Also, the Tria's location in Gangnam is a little far from the touristy sites in Bukchon/Insadong, but it's an easy walk to the subway, so I wasn't bothered much by this.More
