I stayed at Hotel Riviera as part of a global package deal with SM Entertainment. On arrival no one helped us with our luggage. I could manage on my own but I always thought given the rating of the hotel, I would think it was pretty standard for someone to even offer a hand. We arrived at 6pm so it... More

I stayed here one week while attending a conference. I brought family with me. The hotel was excellent. It was conveniently located. The staff were excellent, especially the concierge who was extremely helpful. The rooms were spacious. The housekeeping lady was very friendly and cleaned diligently. Overall, a great hotel and in a great location.

I stayed here for 5 nights whist attending a conference at COEX which was only 12 minutes up the road. Besides being a conference centre it also has a mall underneath. The hotel registration was straight forward and the front desk staff were helpful throughout. On the positive side the room was large and well stocked with good sized flat... More

I spent here 2 nights on a business trip. Most of my meetings were in Gangnam area hence basically within walking distance (Uber black works also pretty well in Seoul). Spacious room, quiet, comfy bed, big bathroom, a bit oldish maybe. Overall a good option not too pricey considering the neighbourhood.

Good location by the river so easy access to most Seoul. 15 min walking to COEX. OK service. A bit old facility. Public places/elevators could benefit form better cleaning. Rooms OK size. Breakfast can be improved...

I stayed at this hotel for a night, and it was just fine. Not a fancy hotel but very clean and spacious. They have a free shuttle to the Coex in the morning so I could check in my luggage at the city airport! You don't have to carry around your luggage all day and you don't have to wait... More

Stayed at the hotel for a full week. Some in smoking some in nonsmoking rooms. It seems the new building's rooms are larger in area than original building. Very noticeably different in size, so if you want roomier accommodation at same price, ask for room in the new building.

Staying in Apgujeong / Cheongdam

Neighborhood Profile
Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their flagship stores here, catering to the neighborhood's mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong and Cheongdam are mostly lavish residential buildings for some of Seoul’s most affluent alongside extravagant restaurants, bars, spas, and other spots for indulgence. And Cheongdam has long been a bastion for flashy clubs and parties, though in recent years, Itaewon has emerged as a strong challenger to those claims.
