Our recent stay at the Gangnam Novotel was outstanding due to them having a great bell staff. These guys made us feel comfortable in a big foreign city.

Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip and thought although i only used the hotel for somewhere to sleep. The whole experience was good and I have no complaints about any aspect of it. The meals were good and the room was clean and quiet. I would use the Novatel again if visiting Seoul for either business or pleasure.

This hotel is well located only a few minutes walk from the bars and restaurants around Gangnam station and a 2 minute walk from the Seoul Metro.

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.
