I booked this place online way in advance of my trip not knowing the layout of the city except the map said it was about 25 minutes by subway to COEX, where my conference would be held. I did not know much about Gangnam except that there was a song by Psy that made it famous, it was a wealthy...

Hotel quite easy to find from Sinsa or Nonyheon (sp?) stations, right behind the Kia motor showroom. Lots of places to shop and eat nearby. Staff super friendly, although the chap on reception warned me that the room was tiny and if I liked I could upgrade for 10,000 won to a bigger room. I hate upselling and so was...

Stayed here in Oct 2014 for 6 nights by myself as a single woman. I wanted a safe budget accommodations under $80 that was clean with a frig, microwave and washer, an ensuite bathroom and free wifi. My room also had a window. It was nicely decorated. This place was pretty self-sufficient. The manager at the front desk (a young...

We had no expectation when we booked this residence. We figured that it is convenient and close to both the subway and the bus lines. Well, it was a pleasant surprise. When I asked for instructions to come to the hotel from the airport via hotels.com, the staff called me right away, and give me detailed instructions. He spoke very...

The Residence's location at Sinsa is perfect for exploring the Gangnam area, it's only 5 minutes walk from Sinsa station, and it is within walking distance of coffee & fashion avenue, Garuso-gil - which. Check out the ㅡ만두 restaurant on your way to the hotel. It's become my go-to place for breakfast.

Seoul is not an easy city to find affordable places to stay if you want to stay out of the hostel game (and I'm getting just a bit too old to be finding hostels a feasible choice for me). For only $10-15 more than you would pay for a single bed in a dorm in a hostel, you get your...

This is a family owned "hotel"... but actually it is like an apartment, feel homy and safe. Me and family stayed here for one week, and we got the best we can get, much more than we expected. I booked a standard double room from Hotels.com, but when we checked in, Mr Lee (son of Mrs Kim) said "Oh, I...

First let me say that this is in fact a residence, not an hotel. You will not have a phone in the room to call the front desk and ask for more soap. In my previous visits in Seoul I stayed at the Ramada in Gangnam and at the Hotel La Casa in Sinsa. Ramada was terrible and La Casa...
