To be honest, I was a bit worried about this stay given all the reviews talking about an old, dated hotel in need for a complete refurb. I don't think I agree with this after staying there for 6 nights recently with my wife. Service was overall great with few exceptions. It all started with pre-arrival Emails a week before... More

Maybe it was just been treated like a king with impeccable service, or the beautiful suite they upgraded me to, but loved this place. The amenities were great, and the lounge on the 23rd floor provided terrific views. The location in the middle of a lot of restaurants was great, so we didn't try restaurants at the hotel. However, breakfast... More

Wonderful ambience and great multi-national breakfast buffet - my personal favorites were the omelette and the dim sum. The hotel is situated near the Yeoksam Metro Station, which is highly convenient as it takes very little time to travel to some of the tourist hotspots and shopping districts such as Myeongdong and Garosugil. Renaissance hotel complemented my Seoul experience and... More

I stayed 5 days for my business trip. I was really happy with the hotel. Room service was good. Good parties are happened at some nights. Its location is also great, very close to Gangnam and also metro station at Yeoksam.

From the black car airport pickup service with wifi in the car to my daily interactions with the front desk staff, this visit has been nothing but a pleasure. This morning I asked the front desk if they could tell me where to get a classic Korean personalized name stamp made. The concierge not only made some phone calls for... More

Location is good if you are doing business in the area, it's about 7 minutes walk to the closest subway station and 20 minutes walk to COEX or Gangnam station. Taxi are plentiful just outside of the hotel and Seoul taxi rate is relatively great value. The service at the hotel is excellent, very friendly staff. By the third stay,... More

A bit older then some of the newer hotels but very well maintained. Right in the heart of Gangnam area with plenty to do and see all in walking distance. Room was decent size not too too large. Breakfast area very nice with large variety. Easy transportation to and from airport on KAL Limo and its very affordable.

I stayed at this hotel in May 2015 on a business trip. The first thing to say about this hotel is that it is part of the Marriott Chain, so i was expecting it to be quite good. The hotel is in the business area of Gangnam so there are plenty of taxis around at all time, and it is... More

I stayed in this hotel on a business trip to Seoul. It was a good location for the Coex conference centre - about 20minutes away on foot.

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.
