Was in Seoul, Korea last week and my group was booked in Hotel Sunshine in the Gangnam district. Locationwise it was a bit far from myeungdong and other shopping areas and places of interest so a taxi is the way to go. If you're with a tour then transportation wont be a problem. Took a stroll at night to explore... More

Pleasant stay An average hotel.. Kinda small room, with wall mounted tv, clean linens, bathroom is spacious enough. Amenities were complete except for the toothbrush which you have to pay. Loved their digital toilet seat. Heater was working, good thing since the temperature was - 10. We enjoyed the breakfast, not too many courses though, but it was great. Location... More

This is a nice, clean hotel, about a 20min walk from Apgujeong station. Most of the staff can understand English, and are friendly. The biggest problem with this hotel is the noise. It gets very noisy at night since there is a karaoke club next door. We can hear loud music every night, even when we wear ear plugs. We... More

The non smoking room was much better though I would say, hej there is a kind of light cigratte smell but compared to... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week back in end of April - early May 2012. The weather was getting hot but the hotel does not offer air-conditioning which was a bummer because it was almost 29 degrees one night. No joke. This is what the room temperature monitor told me and I'm sure it's correct. The hotel staff... More

I stayed in twin bed room at this hotel. The hotel is okay. Good things: updated rooms with a nice modern design, good service (they carry your bag for you, call taxi, help you with anything you want), 21st century technology in rooms (electric toilet seat, phone/remote to control everything in the room, new TV, etc.). Not so good things:... More

That's a mighty nice professional photograph they have of the hotel. I'm here to say it doesn't look that beautiful. That said, it suited the purpose just fine - I needed a place that wasn't too expensive, wasn't too remote and had a free internet connection, which is exactly what they provided. I found the front desk staff to be... More

I stayed this hotel for a week in 2011. It was reasonably priced and clean with internet connection. It is close to Apgujung area, but not a walking distance to anywhere, Kangnam station or KOEX. if you are new to Seoul and not a taxi or bus savvy, this is not the place for you.

My partner and I stayed at this business hotel for 5 nights. The hotel is situated close to Apgujeong station, about a straight 10 minute walk from exit #3. Easy to find. Hotel is on the left side. We booked a standard double through Agoda for about $80ish per night. Room - clean, wall-mounted television (watch out for the porn... More
