Hotel is well maintained, room was comfortable and clean. Warm welcome from reception during check in, commendable service. We had a great rest on the comfy bed. Location was convenient from the airport with the bus stop right outside the hotel.

Dear Mark S, Thank you for your review of the Renaissance Seoul hotel, the teams will really appreciate your praise.

Quite centrally located in the Gangnam area. Check in was fast despite the reception was a bit cold. Room was of average size and the 90's styling was clearly outdated. Everything was clean though and very generous on in-room amenities. Free Wifi for Marriott Rewards members. Good breakfast buffet selection and staff very efficient. The indoor swimming pool was a...

On the plus side, the staff were friendly, the lobby is nice, the breakfast buffet was fine (not the best I have had by any means, but good enough) and the hotel location is good, including being on one of the airport bus routes. However the room was small, looked like it had not been updated in 15 or 20... More

I stay at Marriott hotels over 100 nights in a typical year. This is my favorite based on exceptional customer service. The proximity to the Seoul Arts Center and Bongeunsa Temple makes it a fine location for me. Concierge desk is outstanding. I have yet to come up with a query they can not resolve. Very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.

The Renaissance has quite a central location in the Gangnam area, and is within walking distance to the Gangnam center for nightlife, entertainment, and food. Distance from the airport is quite challenging, and I highly recommend taking the subway and allotting about two hours travel time to Incheon, less for Gimpo. Hotel service was exceptional, and they are very friendly... More

This is probably the only large hotel available this side of the town so you really don't have too many options. Decent food options including some good salads. Great gym and plenty of jogging area around the hotel.

Stayed here for four nights for a business trip. Hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the main shopping strip in Gangnam. Staff is great and very helpful. Wifi is free if you're a Marriott member (you can sign up upon check-in). If you're used to the plush pillowtop mattresses common with North American hotels, then you may find... More
