Stayed here with a friend for 7 nights in august 2009. Booked via priceline. We got a great deal, the standard rooms weren't available so we got an upgraded room (22nd floor). My main concern when booking this hotel was it's location, but that turned out to be a pretty convenient one. It's located right in between two subway stations.... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights - good business hotel, with convenient access to the airport via Korean Air bus - bus stop in front of the hotel. Not sure about value for money relative to the rest of the city, but I thought it was reasonable.

Stayed for one night at the Seoul Renaissance in Oct 2008. A very nice hotel overall. The hotel is about 1 hour away from Incheon airport. We stayed at the Club level and hence had access to the club lounge. The spread at the lounge was very nice with good snacks and also drinks in the evening. Rooms very not... More

This hotel was a little older than some of the other hotels, but I did not have any complaints. The downstairs lounge had live music, the lobby was really nice... and this was a Marriott chain. The room was clean, the hotel gave you free bottles of water. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. And there is a... More

Very good hotel, everything so clean and working. We were also lucky to get very good deal for these nights. Also very convenient bus connection to Seoul-Incheon by KAL Bus. However, for a tourist trip you always need metro to get where everyhing nice and interesting is. And metro does not run all night, so taxi back to the hotel.... More

Typical of Renaissance hotels, the lobby as large, with high ceilings. The room was plush and we had a view of the busy street scene below. Smack in the middle of Seoul's business district, the hotel is within walking distance to a good variety of restaurants. It is far from shopping areas and tourist sites, however. We had to take...

This hotel looked very new. Rooms were very nice and staff was incredibly nice and helpful. I stayed at Millenium Hilton on a previous trip and found that hotel dingy, smelly and old. Renaissance Seoul is so much nicer than Millenium Hilton. Highly recommend this hotel. Note that coffee at hotel restaurant is VERY expensive.

This is an excellent hotel to stay in esp if you get it as a priceline deal. It is south of the river and the airport express drops you right outside the front door. Walking up the main street this area called Gangnam has lots of shops and restaurants on the main and side streets. The hotel has a complimentary... 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.
