It insure many restaurants of all cuisines, an array of awesome coffee shops, and great places for shopping, as well. Getting to the Novotel from Inchon Airport... More

The structure is fine and all the facilities also. A real expresso coffee machine is missing at the breakfast, the one they claim to be an expresso is undrinkable, very bad! So, the hotel is very good but they should improve something which is given as expected from such hotel.

Dear Salvo B, I appreciate that you contacted me directly via our in-house guest feedback channel and provided me the opportunity to introduce our new expresso bar in the Bistro, located in the Lobby which opens from 6:00am as a significant improvement to personalize that very special part of the day... the 1st cup of coffee in the morning.

I stayed in a superior room. It was newly renovated - bathroom was updated. Shower was great. Plenty of room. Air conditioner worked throughout the night keeping the room cool. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with lots of choices. Staff was very nice and helpful.

everything about the hotel is dated, including the service. no improvements over the past 7yrs. all the basic services are provided. the restaurant is average. you're essentially paying for the location.

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is very close to the Gangnam shopping and restaurant area and the subway is also only a short distance away. Rooms are comfortable, WIFI works well and breakfast offerings are very good. I will book this hotel again whenever I visit Seoul in the future

Great service, clean room and excellent breakfast. We wanted to extend our stay at the Accor web rate but somehow the site wasn't working. The front desk was very accommodating. My daughter loved the pool as well.

Nice hotel. Have good restaurants and many entertainments. Room is clean and nice. Employees also friendly help you. I Swimming pool and SPA is good. Unfortunately I couldn't experience SPA but looks pretty nice. This hotel located in hot place Gangnam. May you can find some interesting place in the Gangnam street. totally good, but I think little expansive.

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.
