“Superlatives for Service and Style”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

You will not disappoint checking into this beautiful property in Gangnam. Whilst the hotel is not located near the most popular tourist spots (such as Meyongdong on the other side of the Han River), it excels in offering hospitality to its guests.

Even though the hotel is not located near tourist spots, it has a subway station just right outside. Hence moving around is not an issue at all.

Starting from the first touchpoint at the car drop-off point to checking in to the escorted walk to your room, the reception is both polished and warm. All staff are very well trained without appearing "plastic".

The room is decked out in warm earth tones - very soothing, fairly minimalistic and most importantly comfortable. The bathroom is a standout - natural stone wall on one side and a deep and big standalone bath tub. You are guaranteed a wonderful relaxing time once you are back in your room.

The fitness center is reasonably equipped and located at the top floor offering you with a great vista of the vicinity. The pool is small and offers very little privacy. I doubt if anyone would use the pool since there is a very good bath tub back in your own room!

I travel quite a fair bit on the job and I have to say that this hotel has left me with a lasting impression because of the level of service.

I love the modern vibe of this hotel and the wonderful service. I travelled to Seoul a few times for business and this is the hotel of choice for my company. The room service is decent; I had a tasty spicy kim chee soup here. They will even give you a ride to the station where you can catch a bus to the airport - don't take a cab! Too expensive.
I could stay forever in their deep soaking bath tubs. They are truly the best I've ever experienced.

This place ranks high with its sibling - Hyatt on Namsan - on the top accomodation list. If you want the best hotel lobby, chose the Namsan one; the ambience is simply unbeatable. However, if you prefer a bit of privacy and gorgeous rooms, this must be your top choice.

Like all Park Hyatts, there is an edge. Yes, the lobby is on the top floor...And the elevator system can be confusing, and the rooms can be quite dark..but thats the quirk. Service is bar none. Rent a local phone from the hotel, and you have a concierge and translator with 24 by 7. Location is right by the metro, and connected to COEX. I have stayed here manytimes, and I think its a great spot. The glass enclosed showers give you the voyeurism...If you want swank, without the swoosh, this is it.

What a great hotel with world class service. From the moment we checked in, most of the staff addressed us by name. They were so helpful during our first visit to Seoul. Even the GM of the hotel helped us with a sightseeing itinerary, and restaurant recommendations. Located right on the Samseong subway station, with underground access to the Coex mall, and convention centre. The hotel provided us with free subway cards and a free shuttle to the City Airport Centre where you can check in for your flight before heading to the airport. The room was spacious and high tech, including a heated self cleansing/drying toilet seat.
