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.

Is it normal to get a receipt by chekcing out the hotel? For the lady behind the reception desk was not. You have had to discussed with her for a long time to get it. And she was sooooo lazy but she can speak English... The room is in dark color, and you have to used to the staff who...

After reading many reviews calling it a "love Hotel" I was a little worried about what it would be like. I was very happy with my stay, the rooms were very nice and clean, nicer then many other non- love hotels I've stayed it in Korea. The Hotel was also very near the subway which made it very easy to...

This hotel was a very nice surprise. I had read virtually nothing of the hotel and suspected that it was a love hotel. Though I still think the hotel may double as a love hotel (the hotel gives an amenity package that includes a condom), it's really great for the business traveller. The service is pretty much non-existent in the...

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.

“Note that environmental controls can be controlled by the remote control. Took a bit to figure that out but was nice to control the A/C and fans remotely.”
