I stayed in 2 hotels during this trip to Seoul. I just like to explore the old part of the city and the new Gangnam CBD. Gangnam is a very modern city, with wide street compare to the other side of the river. People are more up trend and dress up to the occasion. As the hotel name it's self said, the hotel is really Grand. From the time we set our foot out from the taxi, a well groom tall Doorman in his tall hat like any other luxury hotels have, welcome us with smile and greeting. The service from bell, reception up till the Club lounge were very courteous. As an ambassador member, we were upgraded to junior suite. Room is very spacious, well equiped and even has a iPhone for you to bring along. Only fault i found was the living room standing light power socket was damaged and exposed, it was dangerous to my kid. Housekeeping should pick this up when checking the room, obviously someone was not doing a good job. Just personal preference, I prefer new automatic bidet system with seat warmer than the convention one. Few things I don't like about the room, the sound proofing of the floor is very poor. I can hear our neighbour and upstair guests movement, especially the one staying above our room always wearing her heels walking around, even at 6am. The hotel piping system is building through the living room wall behind the TV. I can hear water draining whole night long. The room is using 2 pieces of vertical blinds for each window, this doesn't shade the room well. I was always woke up by the sunlight in the morning. Nonetheless, the room and bed is very comfortable. I don't think the flooring has warming system, it's freezing during winter. The club lounge breakfast selection is limited. Food are served through the day there. Try the pastry from the pastry shop, the buns are delicious and filling.
Hotel location is very convenience and easy accessible. It's connected to subway at the basement. Another good thing is the hotel is a KAL shuttle pick up point. You can buy the ticket and charge to your room at the hotel reception. It takes almost an hour ride to Incheon airport.
