“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

A good hotel, centrally located with decent amenities. The airconditioning is centrally located which makes the rooms very warm. When I mentioned it to the hotel staff, I was provided with a small pedastal fan which made the temperature in the room bearable. The breakfast spread is big but with no variations so it becomes monotonus. Day after day the same food is kept in the same place so one can pick up the food even blindfolded.

Room Tip: Rooms near the elevator will save a long walk

Dear Sheilasarkar ,

Thank you for your general comment regarding the hotel. In regards to your specific comment about air-con my apologies you found the temperature set at 20degree by government mandate uncomfortable. Breakfast buffet in the Square restaurant is extensive and courses European, Asian, Pacific with a focus on Korean and Japanese cuisine.

Dear Webber H ,

Our pricing does fluctuate with the season and accupancy.. The best rate is via accorhotels.com. Due to 100% accupancy, the staff were unable to move your room.. Maintenance did attend the room and advised that the bathroom problem had been fixed.

I stay here for a second time and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel is well located, rooms are clean comfortable and spacious. The breakfast and evening dining options are very good but there are also many very good places to eat close by which the staff are happy to advise on. Staff are very good and helped me a lot on this occasion when a wheel on my case broke they helped repair it which helped a lot at the start of a long trip.

My particular highlights of the hotel are the gym, pool, sauna area which is top draw.

Overall an enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend.

This Novotel is a very good place to stay, very well located inside Gangnam area with top class facilities.
The gym and Sauna is simply great with high end services.
The restaurants are great and the buffet breakfast is just incredibly huge with vast choice of food.
I would recommend to stay at Novotal Gangnam for business trip or even for vacation with family, it's the perfect place to relax after a day of hard work or sight seeing.

Stayed with my family for the 5th time at this hotel and as always we were fully satisfied. We always stay in connecting rooms with the doors open which is very convenient. I guess by now the rooms are a little worn out and that especially the bathrooms could need a renovation, but nevertheless the room felt cozy and as such nothing to complain about. The gym/sauna is very nice and newly renovated and is worth a visit. Location of the hotel is excellent especially if driving yourself. Easy access to all main highways and ample parking space included in the price. Internet is not included, but just register as a-club member and then you get it complimentary. Unfortunately the signal was quite unstable in the rooms demanding constant reconnect despite seemingly a strong signal. Not sure if it was just a problem in our rooms. Otherwise only positive things to say about this hotel. We will for sure be back.
