This place is literally only for weddings DO NOT STAY HERE. For a pretty hefty price staying in this place was terrible. The towels were grey and sticky. The room had a perpetual smell of cigarette smoke (infact all floors but the lobby stunk of smoke). The staff say all floors are non-smoking but they let all the guests smoke...

The hotel is living off its reputation and is showing its age; rooms worn out and stink of smoke. Only good point is the buffet. Great variety and their sushi is excellent. Needs rennovation urgently: avoid.

Stayed here for two nights. Don't stay in 809 - whilst I don't know whether the other rooms are better there are some noisy extraction fans outside the window, the lights don't work, the carpet and decor tired and need replacing, the sheets stained, can't control the air con, no drawers, the list just goes on and on. Location is...

I checked this hotel online after the travel agent booked it. The pictures online in no way represent the actual hotel. I was originally given a room on the 11th floor - it stank of smoke, the carpet & bathroom floors were so dirty that I could not walk barefoot on them. The shower curtain was dirty. The shower had...

Wanted to leave as soon as we got to our room. The carpet was stained and in the hallway too. Hallway smelly. At times the bathroom smelled of food. However, evening meal was amazing and staff very helpful. Could not recommend the breakfast. It was a long way from the Gangnam station or to any decent shops and eateries. Fabulous...

I dindt stay in this hotel but we visited here as a large family group for lunch. It was absolutely fabulous, every cuisine imaginable fish, meat pasta, sushi pizza , wonderful grills , tasty salads all delicious and very fresh .Impossible to try everything. Unusual soft drinks, desserts and coffee also included. Only a short walk from Sinsa station

If you have booked this hotel already, and you are able to change, please make sure you do! We booked this room last June through a travel agent (who used their supplier). After reading all the reviews, I tried to change the room but we would've lost the money so we were stuck. Having no choice but to stay with...

Shabby place. Carpets dirty and torn. Mildew in shower. Room big but not very clean. There's a night club in basement which makes for random people staying there til morning and a bit unsettling with drunk people. The front desk staff are mediocre.

Terrible experience. The room was small and dirty. Room phone was not working. Even after requesting the hotel staff this was not repaired. Room service is non-existent. Carpets are dirty and the hotel is smelly. Breakfast spread is very limited.
