The hotel seems pretty new and is in good shape, better than some other hotels in Seoul which are quite outdated. Also very good value for money and the location is excellent, pretty much in the heart of gangnam. Can highly recommend.

Spent 3 nights here and will definitely use it again when I stay in Gangnam. Decor is Asian boutique. Reasonable rates, very comfortable quiet room with a great bed. Good location on a quiet side street but close to major office buildings. Lots of small restaurants nearby. Staff was friendly and helpful.

A modern well appointeed hotel with helpful professional staff well versed in English. Excellent location just steps from the metro. Go for the privilege room which has many extra benefits including the great daily breakfast buffet plus access to the lounge with wine, drinks, and hot hor d oeuvres each evening.

The hotel is very close to the Line 2 of the Metro and the bus 6020 stop from ICN. The staff speaks great English and is more than willing to help you with anything you ask of them. The Wi-Fi connections in the room was a little weak from time to time but usually good.

This was my second stay over a two month period. Generally the hotel is functional and fine if you don't look too closely. When you start staying a bit longer (5 days for me) or needing something (like toothpaste in particular), the cracks begin to show.

The hotel is less than 2 minuets walk from the Yeoksam subway and the bus stops to both airports. Check in was quick and simple. The rooms are smaller than some of the larger multi national hotels around, but then for the price it's worth it. Clean, tidy and adequately laid out. The WiFi worked well across several products.

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.
