          Book this hotel through agoda.com. Review in agoda is v good. But disappointed with the hotel. Room is clean but not in good condition. Kinda old. Hotel also far away from subway about 15mins walk. Breakfast not provided. Need to find your own breakfast elsewhere.

          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.
