The staff are sososo very friendly and they speak English sososososo very well! They're very accomodating and even helped us get a jumbo taxi because we had so much luggage with us. The beds were huge and comfy :) and I loved the buffet breakfast! There was a chocolate fondue fountain?!? And the fruits & vegetables are so fresh and...

Dear giancarlaRN, Thank you for your positive comment which I will share with my team. With regards to the noise in the night, probably cleaning cars were working on the street, but normally it is very quiet in the night. Charles LEE Resident Manager

Happy with the hotel - friendly, helpful staff (with the exception of breakfast). Breakfast could have been a little better - more variety needed and perhaps open slightly earlier and close a little later. Would happily stay here again.

I recently stayed here with my daughter during 25-28 March. The staff were very helpful in all aspects. They speak English. We had a lot of unknown places to visit. We were lucky enough having Mr. Kunte Kim, the Duty Manager, on duty all through our staying period. He helped me on directions, logistic and gave me helpful professional advice....

I went to the Novotel for a business seminar over 2 days, and my family tagged along. The service in the hotel was ok but not first class: concierge was not able to recommend a proper restaurant at short notice and request for short extension at check out was denied with a flat "no". Room were clearly old and in...

This hotel is currently undergoing renovations so at the time of writing the hotel was looking a little tired. I'm sure after the upgrade is complete it will be brilliant. There are a number of restaurants within the hotel, the Japanese/Korean and Brassiere where you have breakfast and buffet dinner. Opt for breakfast at the hotel as the selection is...

Stayed here on a business trip for 4 nights. Location was not too bad with some good quality restaurants down the road. Shuttle service at the door and comfortable rooms. Fell asleep with the laptop beside me, which doesn't usually happen. Bar staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend this place to my associates ;)

Great experience at this hotel. Very pleasant from the minute we pulled up to when we left. My only complaint is that they turned off the AC a few days into our stay and it was just hot enough to make me a bit uncomfortable. I believe they do this to conserve energy? No problem, but when we were brought...

Stayed at this hotel at beginning of business trip. Very comfortable, great location. Healthclub good - have to pay for golf, one price regardless of time spent. Only picky issue is bathrooms in rooms not quite as high standard as rest of room.

For me, this was a very good place to stay. The location is good. It's near a subway station (the best way to get around in Seoul, IMO), there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby, and it's walking distance to our office. Also, the Korean Airlines shuttle bus from the airport takes you directly to and from the hotel....

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.
