The hotel is situated in a convenience location, which is only few minutes walk from Gangnam Station Exit 5. The room itself is very basic and dated. The room was not clean properly either as there were hairs on the floor as well as the bed sheets. In addition, there is no room cleaning service on Sunday, which is a... More

Large apartment style rooms. I think they are all twin bed rooms. So couples need to push beds together. Own laundry . Very quiet. Small kitchen area. Enclosed balcony area. Large shower in ensuite. Clean.

Got a special rate as we were part of a Church group which visited Seoul. The hotel is just 2 minutes walk from the main street (Exit 5, Gangnam Subway Station). The airport limousine bus (No. 6009) also stops here. Hence, it was seamless travel from Incheon International Airport and followed by easy getting around Seoul with the subway and... More

I stayed at Coatel in March 2012. I love the great location at Gangnam. Just 2 minutes from the main road where the Airport Limousine bus-stop located and Gangnam subway station. Big spacious room with a kitchenette, small balcony. Very comfortable for 2 persons, a lot of space for your bags and walking around. TV set is a bit dated.... More

We stayed here over the new year after being relocated from another apartment building that was overbooked. Our original booking was quite cheap, so not sure what the real price of this place was. The room was spacious and clean, and the utilities (washing machine etc) were very useful. Large and comfortable bed, and a good sized shower. Location wise... More
