I would say that the only thing that they need...

It was my first trip to Seoul. The best way to reach this Hotel is by using Airport Bus, the bus stops exactly at the lobby. Not all hotels in Seoul has this facility. Hotel's Location: Gangnam area is quite huge, so you need to walk a while to reach the restaurants and shops nearby. There is also a metro...

I had three nights at Novotel Ambassador Gangnam. Check in was very quick and the staff very friendly. I had an excellent room with plenty of space and the bed was large and soft. The bathroom was ok although the lighting wasn't great which could be an issue for females needing to apply make up etc. One thing that really...

This is a nice new hotel with the expected amenities. Clean and sufficiently sized room, bathroom, etc. Modern room design. The location in Gangnam is quite convenient. Generous and fresh breakfast buffet. Lounge downstairs had great live music. However, what really differentiated this hotel was AMAZING customer service, particularly at the concierge desk. The concierges went above and beyond the...

I attended a conference at this hotel in February 2017. Guestrooms are nice and quiet. Alarm clock is so easy to use. Nice variety of complimentary tea bags in the guestroom, with electric kettle. My guestroom rate included breakfast in The Square restaurant, which offers a fantastic variety of food. I ate there for breakfast 8 days in a row...

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.
