Pleasant place to stay in Seoul. Have everything near the vicinity of the hotel. Easily accessible via train or bus. Rooms are big and clean, with a small kitchen and balcony. Would recommend to those who are staying there for more than a week.

I heard good things about Coatel so I was a bit surprised at the state of our room when we arrived. It wasn't that it was messy or dirty, but it's very outdated and looks a bit like you stepped into an older apartment on the Lower East Side or something. The furniture and kitchen were dingy-looking but seem like... More

I was pretty shocked to see such good reviews for this place... and adjectives like "clean." Like, fo' real? I wore flip flops in the shower. It's disgusting. Someone seriously needs to take a toothbrush and some bleach to the grout! My co-worker texted me a photo of the wall outside the bathroom with several brown stains on it. Concerning.... More

Arrived at Seoul at late hour and take shuttle to Gangnam Station. Too dark to locate the hotel and a nice gentleman helped us to call the hotel. It was actually very close( 3 min) from the station but on a side street. The hotel was clean and service was good. They serve good breakfast as well which was included... More

1 hour from Incheon airport. Excellent location and accessible to all parts of Seoul. Have amenities like Kitchenette, refrigerator,washing machine etc. More good for longer stay or wants to cook food. Feels like a homely atmosphere. Staffs are very cooperative.

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

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.
