I stayed at this hotel for three nights, after leaving another hotel just down the road. The room was comfortably appointed and clean, although the bed was a little firm for my liking. The bar was a nice space to grab a drink although it was very quiet when I was there. The onsite restaurant looked nice but was not open for dinner during my stay. However, there are hundreds of not thousands of dining options in the laneways behind the hotel and in those across the road (the actual road on which the hotel is located has limited options).
The location is good, in walking distance to two subways stations and the Gangnam shopping and nightlife district.
The only real issue for me was the lack of in-room cooling and the fixed central heating (this is common in Seoul hotels) which meant the overnight room temperature sat at 25 degrees Celsius. Reception did provide a fan and we were able to open the window, although this did introduce some noise problems.
It is a good value option in an interesting area, but you may want to ask for a room facing away from the road as you will probably need to have your window open even if it is winter.
Staff were all very helpful and attentive. less

Thanks for your staying at our hotel and kind review. Our hotel is located at main of Gangnam district but the hotel is calm and quite. Also we think that the guest service such as room cleaning and staff response is very important so we are always training and trying to provide best service. We hope you to visit again. Thanks and regards.
