Firstly, i would like to state that this is quite a good hotel. The only point that brought down the rating is my personal experience that I had with the Manager. If this did not occur, then this would definately rated 5 stars.

Firstly the good points. Nice modern rooms, I like the decor, the furniture, the amenities, they were all fantastic considering the money we paid. Large showers, spa baths, even heated toilet seats (first time experience... weird but nice...lolol). Large LCT TV and a desktop computer as well for your convenience. It may be a bit slow, but it was definitely usable. The room service in this hotel is also top notch, every time we got back from a day of sightseeing, everything was organised and cleaned and used items replaced. Staff at the counter are nice and friendly, they speak a bit of English, but surprisingly they also speak fluent Chinese (Mandarin).

The Neutral parts. Location, about 5-10mins walk to the metro station, quite convenient to get there. Area has a few convenience stores around and a few bread shops and little eateries. Here is the WARNING for families, the area has a few "massage" places around the area, so for those with little kids might want to stay away from this area at night. None are all out in the open or in your face but you know whats going on when you see drunk office workers enter the place at night. On the other hand, some people might enjoy the area.

Negative. The only negative we experienced was with the hotel manager. After booking through on Expedia about 3 months prior to our trip, with everything paid for, we arrived at the hotel from the airport to find that there was no booking for us. The girl at the counter was apologetic and was looking into the system trying to help us. She ultimately called the manager, who refused to listen to us and stated there is no booking and there is no rooms available. We enquired about using their phone and offering to pay, it was met with a reply that we should go buy a calling card and call using a pay phone outside. As it was getting late after 2 hours of hassling around, I asked if there is any rooms available for us to stay for 1 night and we would pay upfront. This was met with a firm "No".

Ultimately, I used roaming on my mobile to contact Expedia. Expedia was very helpful in checking all our booking and stated that everything is valid. The girl checked with her manager and offered to speak to the manager over the phone to discuss the matter. As i approached the manager asking if he could speak to the representative, he refused to talk to the Expedia representative and continued to say its not their problem.

As i conversed with the Expedia rep, the manager seemed to get a call from someone, and subsequently approach us and say the rooms are now available and everything is fine. No apologies, just you can check in. Very strange experience and certainly didn't give us a good impression.

Overall, without this negative experience, It would definitely rate as one of the best value for money hotels, but unfortunately, its only a "Average" this time around. Hopefully everyone else won't experience this and have a good time at this hotel.

*Rant over.*

What I like about this hotel is the easy transfer from airport on the limousine bus. Very convenient. A mere 5 mins walk from the shuttle bus stop to the hotel. Complimentary stuffs like facial toner, comb, hairdryer, body wash, shampoo and conditioner ( berries flavour - I like ) A floor heater during the cold season. A 24hr mini mart below and a restaurant that serve bbq meat, kimchi chigae, naengmyeon until the wee hours in the morning.

The cons were

1. The bath towel smells of cigarettes + heavy chlorine smell
2. The front desk people and the manager were unhelpful. Asked for directions, they told me to find it out myself and asked me to take a cab.
3. The walking pavement towards the metro subway Yeoksam were filled with flyers of scantily clad girls. ( Around this hotel are filled with love motels, that explains why )

nevertheless, it's one of the better budget value hotel around.

First of all, finding the hotel after using the shuttle bus (Line: KAL3 - getting off at Renaissance Hotel) isn´t that easy, since the short walk from the Renaissance Hotel isn´t described anywhere. CHECK MY PHOTOS, I UPLOADED A MAP FOR YOU. All in one the hotel is very modern and offers good rates.

What we liked:
- modern furniture
- super fast internet (every room has its own wifi hotspot)
- nice shower (water pressure & great cosmetics)
- sitting area in our room (large sofa)
- surrounded by bars and restaurants

What we didn´t like:
- because of the bar location it is very very loud (the whole day music and disco sound)
- WHY there is a glass door and wall in the toilet area? Who wants to watch someone else sitting on the toilet?
- there is no breakfast or room service
- the location is not very central
- the lights and AC is hard to coordinate, because of the fancy but not good working remote and buttons

I uploaded also a video of room No 605 (Category: Suite)

Paid for a deluxe room. It wasn’t prepared and had dirty towels everywhere. So was given a standard room. The room had trash and used condoms in the bathroom. It was beyond disgusting and unprofessional. The front staff just switched my room again. Was unimpressed with how much they didn’t seem bothered that I paid for a room I didn’t even get it the fact that they gave me a room with a strangers condom and bodily fluids in it. Just disappointing and unprofessional.

Ok, the hotel is pretty nice looking but the Hotel Manager's service is horrifying.
We went to our room and realized the door was already opened and when we got in and tried to close the door, it was stuck and when we try to push it harder the door came out. Yes, the entire door came out!!! And guess what, the hotel manager came up and instead of being apologetic that the door might have hurt me, he blamed us for knocking his door down. And he questioned us again and again how did we bring the door down and made us literally waited and stare at him fixing he door with his colleague without even trying to first offer to find us another room. I had to literally ask him does he intend to make me wait there for another 30 mins to see if he can fix the door before he offers another room. And this is not the best part, he came back and told us that there wasn't other rooms available and he wanted us to go back to my cousin's room and stay there till 11pm so that they can fix the door in order for us to go back to the room in the most rude and untactful manner. He seems like someone who has NOT done ANY hotel management courses or understand customer service to be in this industry.
Also surprisingly none of the receptionists can speak any English except the hotel manager and the hotel is somehow located in a very dodgy area where there are heaps of motels next to it even though it claimed to be in a very cool area, NOT! The rooms are nice but seriously, with this type of service I am totally not impressed and the location is not great as well...will definitely NOT recommend. Oh btw there is NO WIFI in the rooms!!!

Hotels with NO WIFI at this time of the century? Seriously?? They provide a desktop in your room but everything is in KOREAN..how do you expect one to surf the internet???

The worst hotel experience I've ever had.
Stay at your own risk!

Hotel staff don't understand English at all, rude, impolite, discourteous and uncivilized. No one helped us carry our luggage up into the rooms, no offer of any sort of help at all.

Room stinks, aged, dark, STICKY floor, the walls were stained, a/c didn't work, dirty couch, water leakage in shower, the shower curtain had worst mildew ever, just annoying Korean noise channels on TV but nothing else.

Hotel's location is in inner streets, there were pimps all over street corners at night disturbing men who walked by,

It took half an hour to ready a simple breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausages and potato wedges) since it was the same dude in the pantry <- yes, it’s a pantry, who was the chef as well. We saw the same dude 5 days straight but at least he was cool, he was the ONLY hotel staff with a smile…

There was a desktop in the room which has internet connection, cool! Isn’t it?! But the thing is, it’s a Korean Windows and everything is in KOREAN! Yay!

The given 4 star rating is absolutely incorrect, the hotel is simply horrible in all aspects. It’s a 70’s MOTEL more likely.

Stayed here for three nights in May and the room was booked by my friend, so it wasn't quite what I was expecting. However once I had worked out how to use the light panel I found the room to be comfortable and clean. I quite liked the small size and decoration of the room. It felt like being inside Dr Who's tardis! Staff pleasant and helpful, location great - close to subway. Didn't try the breakfast as there are plenty of places nearby to try.

Stayed 3 nights in this boutique hotel on a business trip and was pleasently surprised. Very good value. Hotel cafeteria serves American breakfast but is not open on Sundays. Anyway, plenty of restaurants around. Standard room was very clean and comfortable. Front desk is very helpful and staff are conversant in english language.

When I was researching for a hotel for Seoul in the Gangnam area the names that came up as good are the big names like Renaissance, Best Western, Four Seasons and the likes. I am never a big fan of the international names and always like to try small boutique hotels. I came across Hotel Tria in a few different channels and since it was in the Gangnam area I did a more detailed research on it. I have read many reviews on this from various sources. Some say it was the perfect location for a relatively competitive price while others say the opposite. I decided to take a bet on this as I could book myself in a suite for a relatively cheap price and I was only staying for two nights.

In the end, I was glad I took the chance. The hotel was great. I have to state clearly the purpose of this trip and what I was expecting from my accommodation. I am in Seoul for two nights for some Korean cuisine and just general sight seeing. I was mainly looking for hotels that are convenient in terms of getting around and convenient in terms of getting myself accessible to good food.

I am going to start with the location of this hotel. The hotel is tucked away in a small street in the Yeoksam area and about 5 minutes walk from the Yeoksam metro station. Around the corner of the hotel is the Renaissance Gangnam hotel. There is convenience store just seconds away from the lobby and a dozen of Korean restaurants along the street just behind the hotel. If you are into a few booze, there are plenty of bars, nightclubs and clubs to your likings. And yes there are quite a few nightclubs in the area and around the corners but you definitely are not going to feel uneasy about walking alone in the neighborhood.

The restaurants around the hotel are also great. They offer cheap genuine Korean cuisine and there are many to choose from. Beware if you go between 12-2 during the afternoon then most restaurants can get quite packed with people going for lunch in office buildings nearby.

Checking in was seamless. They didn't even need to take my credit card for deposit and all I needed was my passport. I had a suite up on the 7th floor and the room was quite spacious. I had a small sitting area with cozy sofas and then a bed just next to it in the middle of the room. The bathroom had full size shower and a Jacuzzi bath. Drinks in the fridge are refilled daily and there are actually two doors to the room which shields any sound from the corridor. I have read reviews about bad smell in rooms but lucky enough I had no issues with this.

If you need restaurants, lounges or other amenities in the hotel then this is definitely not what you are looking for. This hotel offers a small parking with about 5 parking space and a small cafe in the lobby only. There are no other facilities. I would recommend this for lone travelers, young couples or just friends. This is not suitable for family especially if you have kids as this just isn't one of those hotels that are suitable for kids.

I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Seoul.

A few friends and I stayed here on a weekend trip to attend a concert at the Seoul Olympic Stadium and party around Seoul. We couldn't have picked a more perfect hotel. We had 3 rooms between the four of us. All of our rooms were conistent in quality, cleanliness, and amenities. They provide you with almost any amenity you could think of, not to mention the silk robes. The small hotel makes the stay very intimate - the maids are friendly and the front desk is very accomodating. The room design is very modern, with a glass separator for the bathroom area. That might not be great if you're not comfortable doing your business with a friend in the room, but for couples, singles, or families - I'm guessing - it's totally fine. The bathroom is roomy with a walk in shower (lots of room for certain other activities) and the bed is comfortable. If you're hoping for a view, you won't get one - the window is about 3 feet from the concrete wall of the building next door, but who cares. It's usually hazy outside anyway. If you want to sleep in, the sliding door-type curtain will black out the room. Air conditioning works great. The maid staff is awesome. They folded all our clothes and neatly arranged them for us. The hotel is right next to a mini-stop, a 24-hr Korean restaurant (yum - we ate there at 3am), a massage place, and a short walk away from 2 different train stations, both on the same line as Gangnam and the Sports Complex. Also, did I mention each room has its own wifi router & computer provided in the room? Wow. Great stay and definitely recommended for friends.

Nearest station from Tria hotel is Yeoksam station(Line 2). or you can walk about 12mins to Eonju (Line 9) and 3 stop to Complex Stadium Station and walk 3 min to Convention Centre. Total time will take about 25mins or so.
