I was in the Novotel the previous week. Great experience. I think the only things I have to mention that disappointed me a little bit were the rooms. They're not modern, and not spacious. I also found some dust in various places of my room, if you're asthmatic, not a place to go to. Beside this, the hotel is great.... More

This hotel is beautiful. The lobby is spacious and inviting. There is a glowing Eiffel Tower on the main floor. The rooms are contemporary and comfortable. The best thing about this hotel is their hands-on customer service. The staff is so honest and friendly that we will come again. We loved it!

It was really great experience staying in this hotel at Gangman street. Almost everything should be rated as 5-star service: front-desk, room, breakfast, bell-desk, but two things should be noted: toooo hot in elevators and corrindors on the floors and they should install ATM in lobby to be accessible for foreign visitors who travels only with CC.

If one want to stay at the Gangnam area close to the Gangnam underground station, this hotel is ideally placed. The hotel is clean and service is OK. On the other side the hotel was in August 2015 slightly worn out and thus the price-quality was not as good as expected. Don't have a drink at the hotel bar or... More

Dear tkmdah, We are fortunate to enjoy such a good location as you kindly mentioned. We have refurbished 6 floors in the lasta 2 years and would suggest you request on your next visit. We can't compete on price with the myriad of small establishments dotted around the area. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Mike Brown General Manager 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.
