“Average but good service”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had a single room: small and very basic. Bathroom was tiny with NO space to put your stuff.
What I liked: the convenient location, 10 min. Walk to Gangnam St. And the friendly staff. Nice breakfast buffet but don't get it from room service... Just one tiny cup of coffee, buns and bread not good.

Room Tip: Even if you're on your own, forget the single rooms. Room, bathroom and bed are too small!

Dear our valued guest-Florence L,

Warmest greetings from BEST WESTERN PREMIER Gangnam Hotel, Seoul!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us on Tripadvisor. Our superior sinlge room is pretty popular for those sinlge travelers who look for comfortable single bed, complimentary high speed internet, rainbow shower with comparably lower price. If you found our superior single room small, we recommend you to try our Deluxe double or twin room next time you are in Seoul. In addition, thank you for the nice comment about the breakfast buffet. The menu set of room service breakfast is for the guests who want lighter one than our regular full buffet breakfast, so the menu is simpler and the price as well. Once again, thank you so much for staying with us and we look forward serving you soon again in Seoul!

Best regards,
BEST WESTERN PREMIER Gangnam Hotel, Seoul

I stayed over in this hotel in a single room. This hotel is close to the subway #9, about 5 to 10 minutes walk, this depends on if you are walking towards the subway station or to hotel. One way is uphill and the other way is downhill. It is about 15 minutes walk away from the Gangnam station for line 2. Even for a girl it will be safe walk to/from subway since it is very busy around. There are tons of restaurants around Gangnam area. The price is fine, although if the main purpose is shopping trip, maybe the hotel more near the subway will be better. Can see haling big shopping bags uphill to hotel is not that much fun. Airport bus does stop right in front of the hotel which is a plus. Personal opinion though, I don't find the water to be that hot...it is warm but never to the "hot" level.

Room Tip: I got a even number room, and that I feel is away from the traffic. I am not sure if because I am at...

Average for its class and price. Small clean room (very basic), and average staff. I cannot say much about staff since the only times I talked to them were during check-in and check-out. A walking distance to Gangnam district (15mins) and Shinnonhyeon station. The hotel is located on an uphill (not so steep but still significant). So, you could suffer if you have a lot of stuff on hand. I would give a score of 3 to 4 out of 5.

We booked this hotel on line and it was a great find. The Airport bus stops right outside the door which makes this a very easy and comfortable transfer from the airport. The rooms are warm and cozy. Bathroom is a bit dated but they are clean. Staff is very good, which their English and knowledge of the area very good. We were here for business and everything worked. The BIG plus was the very good wi-fi in the rooms which made doing work a pleasure. I would recommend this hotel, especially since it close to shops, restaurants and a Spa, if needed. Give it a try!

Room Tip: Remember to use the airport bus which stops outside the hotel, very convenient!

For business travelers, Best Western Premier Hotel at Gangnam is a decent choice in Seoul.I stayed here for 3 nights and found the hotel to be very good. The staff is very courteous and helpful and all of them know good English. The lounge area is pretty good and can be used to have business meetings. The food was great and the Chef my request of preparing vegetarian dishes. I recommend 'Bibimpap', if you are vegetarian.

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights while I was on a business trip in South Korea.
Ordered the room online prior to arriving.
I arrived at the hotel around 19:00. Check-in was a breeze, just 3 minutes and I was done with the room key and a FREE Wi-Fi password in my hand.
My room was on the 10th floor with an amazing view (see photos) of the city.
I ordered the simplest single room but actually it's not simple at all and has everything a lone traveler needs and more. The room is quite spacious and if you are like me, you would like the fact that you can just put you suitcase on floor, use it as your closet and still have enough room to move around. The room does have a big closet with a safe that accommodated my 13inch laptop.
There is also a small fridge with (one) complementary bottle of water and other beverages and snacks you have to pay for.
The bathroom is very clean with a nice and BIG shower head (see photos) but it was too short for me to use (I'm 1.88 meters).
The toilet was nothing like I ever seen – you have a small remote/row of buttons that you can warm the toilet seat, wash you private parts and even blow-dry them after you are done! (See photos). You get a nice selection of toiletries and even a comb.
There is also a smart remote on a shelf above the bed that control practically everything in the room such as the lights, AC, TV, radio etc. Very convenient.
Checkout was easy as well, 4 minutes and I was out calling a cab.
Throughout my stay the staff was very polite, helpful and always with a smile. Before leaving I printed my check-in ticket (printing costs money, around 200 Wun a page) but because I only printed one page the staff said I don't need to pay. A small matter, but makes you feel nice.

The hotel is located 5 minutes' walk from the main street (Gangnam) but the walk to the main street is a bit steep. There is a 7/11 just outside the hotel so that’s another plus. If you want to get to the hotel better tell the driver to go to the Novotel hotel, which is just across the street, because the drivers I ran into didn't know the hotel (I guess Novotel is catchier in Korean then Best Western).

All and all, if want a very good hotel, in a reasonable price which is close to the main attractions this is the way to go. Might not have a fancy lobby like Novotel but the room, staff and everything that's important was just great.
