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.

I stayed here for 12 days to recover from my plastic surgery. Great place to have short visit to shopping malls and parks. There are plenty of supermarkets around. The only complaint I have is they don't offer a microwave even in common area to heat my food.

Funky design with a minimalist concept, the rooms were basic budget hotel layouts with comfortable beds and a nice view of the area. Front desk service was friendly and the small gym had proper Technogym equipment. A 10-15 minute walk to Gangnam area shopping/restaurants, a convenient store just next to the hotel, and lots of great local cuisine within a few minutes walk. Price was about $130usd/night and the 2pm late checkout was appreciated.

I stayed for 5 nights in the suite. It was spacious and the staff were very nice and fluent in English! I asked for towels, lotion and other stuff and they delivered it within 10mins. But be aware that there is no USB socket in the room so be sure to bring ur own!

Good location and great vibe in the city center. The room is clean. The staff is very friendly. Communication in English is never a problem. We asked for extra pillows and water without any hassle. Great response and service from the staff. However, do note that they do not provide toothbrush/paste in the hotel. I Guess it’s because they are being environmentally friendly and is aspiring towards zero waste. Good thinking and strategy from both environmental and economic perspectives. Toothbrush can be bought from the vending machine on the hotel lobby.

This is one of the worst Marriot partner hotels that I have ever stayed at. There are many reasons why I would not recommend staying at this hotel (in chronological order): 1. Check-in time was slow. The front desk staff speak a little English and could not really understand spoken English. 2. Shower handlers fell off and it hit my head the first time it fell off. The 2nd time it fell off, I filed the complaint to the front desk and it was really inconvenient as I had to switch room because of it. 3. After switching to another room, the bed has torn mattress sheet about 3-4 cm and the shower door has mildew (See picture). 4. Occasionally there was no hot water during shower. 5. Aircon kept making loud noise. I tried to reach out to the site manager but the manager was unavailable during my whole stay. Although the front desk apologized regarding the issue, they did not take a step up to provide better service for the inconvenience. Overall, I would not stay here again.
