Hotel is only a 5 mins walk to the nearest subway which is Sinninhyeon. Also near the Gangnam Station and Gangnam food street. Enjoy the free titbits and soft drinks provided as well as the coffee making. As I had come during the spring season, I really enjoyed a warm seat on the toilet bowl which came with a heater....

Novotel is nicely located, a hundred meters from the subway station Sinninhyeon, close to heart of lively Gangnam (Gangnam station). The Hotel is nice with its big Eiffel Tower in th lobby, an appreciated french touch :-) Executive rooms are very confortable and convenient though a bit small. As they are brand newly refurbished, they are equipped with high electronic... More

As an experienced traveler, I enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and and amenities of the hotel were top-notch. Very nice work out room, sauna, and swimming pool, room service, and location (block away from shin-nonhyun station and walking distance to kangnam station). Rooms were above average. The only complaint I have is that the shower/tub... More

My experience (average traveller) ; hotel is very good for (business) stay, emplyees are friendly and servicable. Room (standard) deliveres all you need for your stay, fast WiFi Internet for free as well. Lots of sight seeing, lots of reastaurants on walking distance. Hotel breakfast delivers all for Asian and Western guests.

The hotel is well located. Very quite and close to gangnam. There is plenty of space and boardrooms if you need to manage multiple sessions. The staff is well trained and extremely reliable. The rooms are very cosy, large and clean. The food is excellent. We would highly recommend this Hotelif you stay for business in Seoul.

Average hotel with good service. The rooms could do with a renovation. Restaurant is dull, boring and slow (+30' for a burger?) and, as in all international hotels, expensive compared to neighbourhood restaurants.

Novotel was quite an impressive hotel. You can find it right smack in the middle of Gangnam, which is one of the hot spots in Seoul. From the moment you enter, you are greeted by a beautifully furnished lobby. Their staff were corteous and polite when dealing with us guests. Also, they spoke English very well which was really pleasant.... More

Although the rooms were not excesivelly big, this were very clean, moderns and had a very confortable bed. The Gym and Leissure facilities are the best I seen (I´ve been in few hotels). The only drawback is the exesive prices of Buffe breakfast and drinks at the coffee bar in the hall. Breakfast €30 and one expresso €6 its more... More

By entering the hotel, I was already amused by their lobby. They have such very good facade. I was focusing on the facade because I was't able to sleep in the hotel but I was able to see the room and it was very classy. With all the stuff provided. The thing is everything you get, you get to pay... More

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighborhood 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.
