Hotel Artnouveau Yeoksam

Reviewed November 20, 2012

A great spacious double room, living room, bedroom, bar, kitchen appliances. A fabulous buffet breakfast included. Due to time difference (16 hours ahead of my Colorado Springs), breakfast became the mail meal of the day. A short walk to subway, restaurants, Samsung Headquarters (if that matters to you). A beautiful decor, a la later 1800s Europe. Internet, command-control of all numerous lighting fixtures. Very happy with this accommodation.

Room Tip: Choose top floor, mini-suite, with breakfast included. You may wish to use Expedia to book.

Who'd expect a serviced apartment in Gangnam would be so decked out for the price? Not exactly budget level but US$190/night is pretty decent for what you get. Very "artnouveau" decor if you like that sort of stuff, almost bordering on gordy for the minimalist - need to check out their website for yourself. It's almost brand new in October 2012. It is clearly well-maintained and spotless.
Only gripe is wi-fi in the rooms is hard-wired only and costs a bit. However there is free wifi in the lobby but guess what? Everybody's got the same idea so it's generally slow. Nevertheless useable if you sneak down very early in the morning. There are 2 elevators which can take a while in peak times unless you want to walk. There are 25 floors!
Location is great especially for cheap eats around the corner. These range from BBQ to live seafood and other Korean staples. There is also a full-size supermarket just in the next block on Eonju-ro. It's in the basement. The local convenience stores like GS25 are good for buying and charging up Metro cards. Location to subway access is not too far unless it's pouring. Seolleung station is downhill and Yeoksam station is uphill over a small rise, roughly 500m in either direction (east or west accordingly).
The KAL limo bus for Incheon Airport stops literally just across the road at the Rennaisance Hotel. That's 15 buck one-way.
Just a reminder, it IS a serviced apartment so no room service or porters. And yes, the staff speak reasonable English.
Highly recommended and affordable.

Room Tip: Face the Rennaisance Hotel, corner room if possible

I stayed at Artnouveau City for 8 out of 14 days for business and vacation in August 2012.
This is a great location. The backside to the hotel has a wide range of really affordable eating and drinking locations. It is 5 minutes from COEX shopping center and has easy walking access to the subway. While a great location, there is little room for personal vehicles to pull up and stop for a few minutes. It is easy to flag a taxi to stop and pick up. Accommodations are built as a residence not a hotel. The key must be placed in the cardholder to activate lights, A/C, etc. AC is found behind the light which was confusing as two remotes are supplied. The bathroom is quite small and the shower is not easily accessible as the door opens inward and size of shower itself is small. While I consider myself a regular size person, I still found it was not convenient to go into and come out of. The bath tub is quite old and I did not feel comfortable taking a bath in it. While appears clean and tidy there were roaches. Staff will come up to kill or spray the room if requested. Staff speak English well and appear to listen well but may not interpret what you are saying well. Overall, you must remember this is not a hotel rather a residential accommodation.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking or non-smelling room. Ask for two room keys so you can keep one card key in...

I stayed for 25 nites, close to the office that I had a businesses. I stayed on 5th floor. The room is clean,equiped wtih kitchen stuffs. I have a suggestion regarding sizing of shower box. To have more space in it, I think soap and shampoo table shall change to wall mounted type of dispancer. Breakfast was good and has a laundry service too....with reasonable price. Close to subway train station and airport bus stop.

Stayed for 11 nights last month.
Chose to stay here due to the length of my stay in Seoul this time.

I stayed on the 7th floor, smoking room, 1 bedroom suite.
The Location was good in Yeoksam, Gangnam which was close to most of my friends living in Seoul and very close to the Gangnam popular areas like COEX, Gangnam station, etc.

My suite had a loft and it was really great! Had a fully equipped kitchen, utensils, dining, etc.
The Toilet and shower room was a little tight but nicely designed still (had a seat bidet so i like it)

Had a 2 seater couch in the living room and coffee table facing the 40 inch LCD tv and had mirrored walls so that was nice.

The bed was comfortable but they only provided 2 pillows. That's fine but 4 would be better.
Room was cleaned everyday and the housekeeper was really polite and nice.
Room SCORE- 4.5

The Staff were very friendly and spoke native level english so I was very much pleased whenever I spoke to them.
Staff score- 5

Overall experience - 4.5

Would I stay here again? You bet.

Room Tip: Get the corner Suites, more expensive but worth it

I stayed here for 5 nights for business in May 2012. The price is affordable and the location is good. The rooms are clean and look very nice but...it's not all that comfortable. The sofa was not very comfy but the bed was great. The bathroom was small and the shower had a door that opened inward so that if you are to large you will have much difficulty closing it once you are in the shower. The lights were very hard to fiqure out (leave your room keycard in the slot above the switch). A/C was also confusing. But I have to confess it is explained if you pull out the guest binder. Point the remote at the A/C unit on the ceiling to work it. It has a small kitchenette and plenty of storage. Breakfast was great. Long wait at the elevators in the morning. The staff were nice although not very friendly, kinda formal. Overall, a good value.

Compared to the branded 4 star hotels, this hotel is much more affordable. I stayed here for 5 nights on business. Includes comp breakfast on the 18th floor. Breakfast is ok, but not great. Mixture of American and Asian food. WiFi is not free. The rooms have high ceilings and mine came with a large fridge, small kitchen area, and a washing machine. It's meant for longer stays. Good location. Lots to eat nearby.
