It is well maintained and you can tell that...

The housekeeping staff forgot to replace towels, floor mat 2 days in a row. I was supplied with a bottle of shampoo, shower gel and 2 bottles of body lotion but no conditioner either. In addition, on my last night, the air conditioning vent rattled, started to smoke a little and gave off a peculiar burnt smell so I switched...

Amazing hotel! Stayed there for 17 days, so really felt like home. Rooms on the last 3 floors are renovated, big enough and functional! Good restaurants in hotel - the Square buffet offers great verity of food for lunch and dinner also. Only downside-not good English skills of most of the staff at the reception.

Modern, spacious and very friendly service. Handy Gangnam location- roughly 90mins from Inchin airport. Very close to Coex, with shopping and cultural attractions. Comfortable and modern rooms. Plenty of high quality food and drink venues nearby.

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighbourhood Profile
Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
