I stayed at this hotel in the mid 90's and you know what? It's same rooms but the outside was remodeled. This is more of the touristy Japanese tour trap but not bad for the price compared to others in the area and Itaewon as well. Old style rooms like when Kim Gun Mo was popular. Not that bad though....

Dear friends, i want to recommend you to look for another hotel. I could not say that this hotel is complete disaster, but i am sure you can find much better one. People who work there are nice, but the hotel is not. Everything surrounding is cheap and bad quality. I was reading here that this hotel was renovated but... More

Excellent hotel in the city. Close enough to subway links to get around and a short walk to the kukkiwon. I was there on a training break so this was great as I could go to the kukkiwon and to local gyms to train. The food was great the breakfast in particular was outstanding. For dinners though I would recommend... More

This hotel is good value for money and generally cheaper than others of a similar standard in the same road. It takes about 10 minutes uphill from the Sinnonhyeon metro station exit 4. Near to exit 4 is also Bongeunsa-ro 4-gil where if you want to get away from hotel food you can find plenty of variety mostly Korean style... More

This hotel was picked for me by my Korean business associate. My review title says it all for me. I asked for a room with a king-size bed. They gave me a tiny room with a a full-size bed. The carpets were filthy. Although my room was on a non-smoking floor, other folks were smoking in their rooms on that... More

Stay for 2 nights for business. Room is not modern, but comfortable enough. Bathroom is dated, but working well. Breakfast is good. Location is in Gangnum, but quite far away to subway. You have to walk about 400 m uphill for return trip. Airport bus stops at opposite best western hotel.

First, the location is very accessible to companies, establishments, restaurants. Second, the staff are very friendly and can speak English well. Third, I personally like the their breakfast buffet.

I was looking for another hotel since I stayed last. The last experieine was decent but not great. Eventually I realised this is the best value place at Gangnam. So booked this again for 11 nights..... - Check in was swift and no fuss - This time they gave me 11th floor, looked refurbished but the room size were smaller... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week. The room was clean, adequately furnished and the staff helpful But neither one of us got much sleep Friday-Sunday the adjoining very loud nightclub went boom, boom, boom from 7 PM to 7 AM non-stop. The rooftop restaurant is very nice and while not inexpensive, good value for the money.
