We recently had three nights at the Renaissance, It is a fine hotel with spacious lobby, good bar and music lounge and surrounded by bustling Gangnam. The guest rooms were well fitted out, though a little 20th Century Marriott for our preference. The staff were efficient and helpful. My one criticism would be that the breakfast buffet looked good but... More

This was our first time in Seoul and wow were we impressed from start to finish. The luxury airport bus (with free wifi and loads of leg room) runs regularly and efficiently directly to the hotel.

This hotel was chosen for me because of its convenient location in the Gangnam business district. I have no status at Marriott and don't typically stay in Marriotts or Renaissances. I stayed for three nights on a business trip, Sunday through Wednesday. The first thing you notice is that the hotel urgently needs an upgrade. The public areas, elevators, and... More
