Good location, however, there are some notable let downs from this establishment. You can pick up that there is cash flow issue with this place. 1) Expensive breakfast is $75+ USD per person. 2) Extortionate prices for food, $35 USD for a sandwich? 3) The hotel doesn't provide the basics room essentials and tries to sell the products as a...

We stayed in November during a cold snap. Location is good, not great. It seems to be within a business district, so not near a lot of the flashy shopping and dining that Gangnam is known for. Still, it is about a short 2 block walk to the Cheongdam subway station. Nearby are a few convenience stores (CV, CS 24)...

I loved that this hotel was just a short walk from the running/biking path along the Han River, and was in the lovely Gangnam section of the city, with lots of great shops nearby. The breakfast buffet was very good. The fitness center and indoor pool were fantastic. The only things that would have made this better would be a)...

Stayed here a couple of times. Front desk was fine. There's a business "room" where you can use a computer and print documents. They also have a souvenir shop right beside the lobby so that was convenient. On Friday and Saturday nights there a night club open but expensive. Room was spacious but dark. We had a decent view of...

Staying in Apgujeong / Cheongdam

Neighbourhood Profile
Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their flagship stores here, catering to the neighbourhood's mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong and Cheongdam are mostly lavish residential buildings for some of Seoul’s most affluent alongside extravagant restaurants, bars, spas, and other spots for indulgence. And Cheongdam has long been a bastion for flashy clubs and parties, though in recent years, Itaewon has emerged as a strong challenger to those claims.
