I stayed here while on a business trip visiting a company in Gangnam. It was a short walk to the office each morning, so the location is excellent.
I was not very impressed with the check in experience, I have an Accor Platinum card but I was not offered any welcome benefits or upgrade. I had booked a Superior room, but when I got to my room it was clearly marked as a Standard room. (The elevator clearly lists floors as Standard, Superior or Executive). When I returned to reception to complain they told me that Standard and Superior rooms are the same, the difference is simply the benefits such as Wifi and Breakfast. If that is the case why label the floors in that way?
My stay did improve after the initial poor experience though, the Japanese restaurant in the basement was very nice and there is a huge breakfast selection in the morning. I also enjoyed a nice burger in the bistro one night. There are also loads of eating options nearby in Gangnam.
The fitness area was quite impressive, although the actual gym area could be bigger.
Airport transfer is very easy with the Korean Air Limousine, tickets available from reception.
