Cheongdam Human Star Ville
Ranked #330 of 505 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Dated furnishings, wallpaper, etc. nice shower. Poor service. Great location. Good value. If I could do it over again, I probably would have opted for the Hotel Riviera nearby. Better yet, I'll try to find a nice condo nearby using airbnb.

As expected. A bit dated but rooms are clean and has everything you need in terms of amenities. Great location - reason I keep coming back. The Page - coffee shop downstairs is a bit expensive compared to others but really convenient.

I have stayed here twice. 2009 & 2011. Planning to return in 2013. I am surprised at the reviews as the place is nice, clean and very close to everything you need. Coffee shop downstairs, across the road (and pretty much every corner!). Handy mart in the basement and up the road and restaurants all around it- you just need to walk the streets behind it.! 5 - 10 minute walk from apgujeong where you will find more restaurants, shops, coffee shops and lots of bars and clubs. Some places can be a bit pricey but you are staying inan apartment so head down to a supermarket and stock up on essentials which is much cheaper. Yes, the place might look a bit tired in the rooms but we have stayed in the suite double high floor rooms and they were great! All you need is in the room (tv, cd, DVD, fridge etc) and the views of the city and Seoul in general are spectacular. Very safe and we have never had any issues. Locals are great and so is the food. Short taxi ride to coex or just jump on the subway and stop at random locations and explore. I am yet to be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose the high floor room!

I have stayed at this residence since it first opened in 2006. My first stay was a very extended one (6 months on a corporate stay) and it was top-class. The furnishings were state of the are and everything has been spot on clean. However, I have come back (sometimes because there were no other alternatives at this price level). on and off with a few years in-between each stay. It has gotten worse and worse. The furnishings/furniture/floors have been through very TOUGH wear and tear - the floors are not clean and the furniture is beat up. Every time I come back it is worse. So after 6 years, I guess finding cockroaches in the kitchen, burn marks in the sofa, barely working computer, and smelly bed should not be out of the question. I only stayed here because EVERYTHING else within KRW 50,000 per day price range was booked in Gangnam, and I would only come back if THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE.

The service was not good. Went in knowing that there was no room-service but did not realize they did not provide any amenities (shampoo, toothbrush, razor, etc.). Hotel was not cheap and was further nickel-and-dimed for basic needs. For example, I needed to leave a 20$ deposit to borrow an extremely bulky 20 pound power converter, and had to pay for all of my local calls. They only had wired-internet and had no internet cords longer than 0.5m. Very disappointed and will certainly never stay there again.

Well, I have to give you my reasonable opinion that I hope you to help you not to have a wrong decision.I care about the cleanliness a lot and this apartment is not as good as other serviced apartments where are near coex.

They clean twice per week and the quality would have been great if they clean well and maintain well in general.
I don't think this is cheap apartment but they don't clean professionally..
If you don't care about the cleanliness, then it's nice to stay. you can order food and they can deliver to your room, which is not possible to do at other hotel style serviced apartments.

Room is big enough to have family. but if you have baby under 3 years old, this is not the right place to come,because it's DIRTY if your cleanliness lever is high..
The insolation is not good that you can hear the car's noisy from outside.
At the kitchen, it looks ok, but when you touch washing machine or dish washer, drawers...etc which are pretty sticky that it seems they don't clean well in general, I don't want it perfect, but at least it should be the same level of the hotel how much you pay. This is the face of Gangnam and it should not be like this..
Location is OK, you have to walk 15minutes from the station Or just take a taxi.
To Coex, it costs around 3000Won.
There is no swimming pool, but there is small gym at the basement.

Let's be clear guys, it's not a hotel - this is suite residences with 4-star hotel services You got suite with completly furnished kitchen, bedroom, living room etc.
Upon your request there are room cleaning service and bunch of delivery options. BIG advantage is location - Apgujeong next door, all top night hot spots are right away on the block. Neighborhood is kinda lavish place with lots of top rated facilities, brand stores, fashion authorities and of course cars .... you can get even dozen of Enzo Ferraris by night or Lambos....or Porsches or else. Korean Beverly Hills like locals named it. True as it is.
