I have stayed at this hotel last week, and I really had a great time. The room was good, the hotel facilities as well, and the location (although not in the old part of the town) was still pretty good for getting around.
The subway station can be reached within 5-10 minutes either by taking the street or going inside the COEX mall (perfect when it rains). If you want to grab some food, do some shopping or go to Aquarium, its right there in the COEX mall as well. The hotel also has busses stopping there on the weekend to bring you to the Yeoju Outlet Malls and the bus to the airport stops every 30 minutes I believe and cost 15000 Won, which is about 10 Euro (the busses are GREAT and a convenient way to get to the Incheon airport)
I have had room service twice and had no complaints about it whatsoever - the prices are not the cheapest, but still fine for the quality of food provided. I also booked two hours of treatments in the INSPA at the hotel - GREAT GREAT GREAT time :-) There is a casino at the hotel, which I did not visit so I cannot say much about it, and also the Duty free shop one story down if you are interested to buy things there.
I will post some pictures in case you would like to see some "details" for yourself ;-)
The only thing that I found sort of difficult was to communicate with the staff - although they really did their best, the level of English was subpar so at times I had to give up and try to figure out things on my own. However, it seems to be an issue all over Seoul - a minor issue compared to the service and the warm hospitality you receive
