I stayed here for 6 nights. The location is very good, 5 mins walk to central Gangnam's shops. The gymnasium is decent, Technogym machines, dumbells to 22kg, olympic bar and bench. Staff are all extremely polite and professional and English speaking. Food is excellent in the hotel, the breakfast is top notch, and the restaurants in hotel also very good quality (but bar and restaurants are expensive). Rooms good size (note shower leaks onto floor). KAL airport shuttle bus stops outside the hotel front door.
Downsides - there is a nightclub outside (Eden), I was on the 11th floor and noise from revellers till 430am on few nights is very audible - take some earplugs. Aircon isnt turned on over winter - so the room was stuffy at night but staff provided a fan. Wifi is not free and expensive but there are a couple of Macs in the lobby.
All in all a very good hotel, I'd stay here again - just remember the ear plugs!
