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

The standards of the hotel have been maintained very well and have in fact improved with the front desk staff being much more smiley and approachable compared to when in... More

I have stayed in this hotel about 4 or 5 times now over the past few years. The rooms are quite spacious if a little dated but clean and comfortable. My room was on the front of the hotel and I didn't have any problem with noise (in spite of other reviews) and the back of the hotel would appear... More

excellent staff. Good gym and pool. But can get Best Western which is right actoss the street, at half price, if you have to be in Gangnam. BTW Gangnam is mainly offices and behind the office blocks are small alleys with overpriced restaurants, average Korean foods, and massage parlours. Novotel Gangnam is closest to Sinnonhyeon subway, not Gangnam subway. Remember... More

My daughter was admitted to the er of a hospital. A staff of Novotel accompanied us in the ambulance and stayed with us in the hospital until my daughter is stable. He make sure everything is OK before going back to the hotel. Excellent service
