This hotel was really nice - we were a bit thrown off by the ladies' night - they wouldn't let our gentleman friends even sit with us, but we had fun during our stay and it's within walking distance of every where you could want to go. They were also very helpful in arranging taxis and making sure we could... More

The hotel is very central and you can walk easy to the Gangnam district with endless number of restaurants and bars. The rooms are rather small but clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly and have a very good service attitude. The breakfast is good and you have choices for all kind of tastes. The gym is really nice... More

This hotel is located right in the heart of Seoul's Gangnam district, close to shopping, restaurants, night life and public transportation. A couple of subway stops away, you will find the serene Bongeunsa temple, which might be the most beautiful place in the city.

Plenty of traditional Korean food restaurants around such as BBQ pork, spicy chicken and fried chicken, Bimbimbap and beef steamboat. Other western foods or Japanese restaurants also available. Few pubs can... More

The hotel is quite nice and the facilities are good. Staff are friendly and polite. The rooms are not particularly spacious but are comfortable. The hotel is in the process of being renovated which it needs as the place is quite dated. Fantastic location close by many bars, restaurant & the metro. The minibar & room service is very expensive... More
