Hotel staff very friendly, also can speak fluent English. Even the outside weather is pretty cold, the lobby staff still accompanied me waiting outside for taxi and patiently introduce the destination with us. Wonderful

I am not very keen on Novotels, therefore when my company booked me in this hotel for part of the Seoul business trip, I was a bit unimpressed, but I was completely wrong as I loved the hotel, service, rooms are of big sizes, good location for Gangnam and good food. Certainly a very pleasant surprise

I was on a business trip and stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks. It is very conveniently located close to a street with many restaurants/pubs and close to a metro station. I accidentally injured myself during the stay and the staff helped me greatly in arranging transport and everything that was needed in the hospital. Special thanks to concierge... More

Stayed at Novotel in Gangnam for one night. Service is impeccable and you are welcomed as soon as you get off the taxi/car. Receptionists speak adequate English and are extremely helpful. The room was spacious and phone chargers are made available in the room. Ordered breakfast but the portion was quite disappointing for the price you pay. Asked to have... More

Though the price is very high the location of this hotel is rather good, considering that it is near to the many shopping streets of Gangnam. And also the food street. The service at the Premium Executive floor needs to be improved though. It is very inconsistent, with much to be improved on. For example, sometimes you get no items... 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.
