A very good stay at this well located hotel. A short walk from the airport bus service, well appointed rooms and excellent front desk. The gym was also good. I stayed here and also attended a meeting in the hotel. Meeting package and lunch were good. A very professional hotel.

Visiting on business from U.K. for 2 nights. Standard room was decent size, clean and had all I needed. Breakfast was excellent with brilliant choice and great freshly cooked omelettes. Enjoyed relaxing on the top floor in the sky lounge. Great, friendly helpful staff. Recommended.

Being an international brand hotel, it lived up to expectations. The rooms were clean (a bit on the small side, but not as small as Tokyo), modern and included free wifi. The staff were helpful in assisting to get taxi to airport, and directions for places in the area. One piece of advice for going to airport during non-peak hours... More

We stayed at the Mercure Sodowe for 5 nights during our East Asia trip earlier this year. The hotel is about 60-90 minutes away from Incheon Airport via a coach bus (depending on traffic), which leaves you only 150 m away from the hotel door; great if you travel with bulky luggage, so you don't have to drag your belongings...

The Sodowe Restaurant on the top floor offers outstanding views of the city with excellent European cuisine. They offer a multi course meal for 77,000 Won. The steak is great, but with the many course meal it is small.

Front desk and bar personnel were pleasant and efficient. All services came with big smiles. Housekeeping was quick and comprehensive, found after my lunch meetings. Except for the "seasonal" room rates, I shall come back here for more good times.

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.
