This hotel has many positives and several important negatives. The location is good -- the hotel is very close to an express bus stop from Incheon airport, and is within a ten minute walk of two subway stations and the many restaurants and bars in Gangnam. There are also a number of Korean and other restaurants within a two minute walk (on the street behind the hotel). Given that it overlooks a major highway, the hotel is reasonably quiet (at least with the air conditioning going) and is very clean. Free wi-fi is available in the rooms, and worked reliably. My room was reasonably sized (for a solo traveler), but would be tight for a couple. It was equipped with a very comfortable king-sized bed, a sitting/desk area with a flat screen TV, a galley kitchen (that I did not use), a full-sized refrigerator, a washing machine (that I also did not use), and a small but functional bathroom. Thankfully (Seoul is very hot and humid in the summer), the A/C was excellent. With the air conditioning cranked up, I slept very well. On the down side, calling the room decor garish is an understatement -- foil wallpaper, patterned doors, mirrors, etc. -- it is certainly not the epitome of understated elegance. Breakfast is poor; I ended up eating fruit, toast, coffee, and Korean soup every day after the first -- the western food looks pretty awful. The hotel does not air condition the corridors, so they are very hot and humid. The front desk staff were all pleasant, but I was not always confident that they understood English very well.
