It's close to COEX on a backstreet (with a great coffee shop and some great fried chicken shops along the walk). Google Streetview shows just a sign where the hotel is, but Domu or Naver (Korean search engines) have updated street views if you want to see the hotel's location before you go (search for 호텔 더 디자이너스 and it's the one south of the river in Gangnam). Everyone I interacted with on the staff was very polite, and the room was kept clean and stocked with free water and Pocari Sweat (an energy drink). Other than the free drinks, the fridge is generally empty, so you could keep whatever you wanted in there. Every room has its own theme, and some of them are kind of weird (I was here for work knew people in a few different rooms). Each room has its own wifi hotspot (so good coverage), big screen tv, laptop (if you don't have your own), 110 & 220 plugs, window that looks like a mirror, and a remote control that controls the lights and the heat/AC (this was a little hard to figure out at first when the room was warm). The hotel has a bicycle that you can rent for free, but I didn't take advantage of this.
