“First Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

I don't travel much, but I think this was an amazing room for $100/night. The rooms were plush and clean and featured all the amenities you would need for a lengthy stay. The area in Gangnam was a good location for sightseeing (the attractions were just a short bus ride away). I would highly recommend this hotel to any of my friends visiting Seoul.

On the plus side, nice and generally comforatble rooms, Decent kithenette (didn't use), nice living room area with large TV, nice staff. Reasonably quiet place. On the negative, tiny bathroom (other than shower) - no vanity,. No ironing board in room. Not the best location. Also, recommend breakfast buffet. Fitness center was ok, unless

We had 3 choices for accommodation in Seoul: 70s style motel/hostel room; 80s/90s style hotel room; or 00’s serviced apartment. We chose 00’s serviced apartment for the price of a 80s/90s style hotel room. Our choice is a total success, and ArtNouveau City II is perfect.

Pros: For the price of a normal 4 star “western” hotel room, you get a beautifully decorated Victorian themed unit with in-house kitchen (including stylish utensils, brand new microwave, even a rice cooker), brand new washing machine + dryer, 45’’ LED TV and foxtel, separate dining area, extremely comfy bed and doona, and an electronically heated toilet. Unit is cleaned/serviced daily, staff is English speaking, location is 10 mins walk from Gangnam Station. We chose ArtNouveau City II because of its close proximity to Gangnam Station and larger rooms to ArtNouveau City I by comparison.

You cannot go wrong with this serviced apartment, either short stay or long stay. I mean, why would anyone want to pay 100USD to 200USD for one bedroom of cheesy 90s decor with zero extras like kitchen or washing machine, while they could easily choose to stay in new-age serviced apartments like this luxuriously presented vintage-themed ArtNouveau City II is beyond me. I love its vintage decor so much that it has inspired me to decorate my own unit back home in Australia in the same style.

The cons: ArtNouveau City II (as of March 2010) is only partially completed. I.e. the spa and barber shop are still under construction, while the restaurant, roof top garden and business centre are finished and open to public. Also, if you are looking for a study desk, I am afraid they only offer a combined TV bench and study area, as there is no separate study desk included.
