Great staff, kind and helpful at all times. Plenty of space in the rooms, and everything looks very clean. Breakfast is very extensive, lots of things to choose from, and well prepared. One improvement could be to add some more power sockets in the room, for example near the nightstand.

We stayed here for just over three weeks. The hotel has a nice breakfast buffet with fruit, eggs, omelet station, bacon, smoked salmon, breads, pastries, cheeses, chocolate fountain with dipping items, Asian foods, cereal, coffee, juice, etc. Just about everything you could want. My husband ate at the buffet every morning. Because of my dietary needs, I only ate at... More

The hotel location is walking distance to the popular Gangnam area, where there are plenty of nightlife activities. However, the hotel itself needs renovation. The breakfast menu was excellent even though the room is slightly cramped.

I really enjoyed our stay at the London NYC. The location is fantastic - right in the middle of midtown, a block away from MOMA, a great place to stay if you're planning on going to a Broadway show. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful - every interaction I had with someone at the front desk was great. And... 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.
