This hotel is too noisy for a business trip. They have free accommodation and free breakfirst for 2 children under 16 years. You can imagine that this hotel is full of families. I like kids, but on a business trip I don't like the floors, the breakfirst room and the swimming pool to be that noisy and stressful!

Dear Markus B , Breakfast and pool were an anomoly, as we are currently in Korean Holiday period we experienced significantly increased numbers of guests staying per room which has in all truth seriously stretched the capacity of the Square Restaurant and pool. My apology for the inconvenience and looking forward to welcoming you back to experience our standard service....

The hotel was chosen because of the discount prices they had. Normally we don't stay in such expensive places. The first thing I liked was fine aroma that filled the air inside of the hotel. The room was comfortable and spacious, the linens and bed are so nice and comfortable to sleep. And breakfast had so many varieties of all...

I was very impressed with this hotel; it pretty much has it all including a "wow" factor upon entering the lobby and seeing the impressive waterfall. Great room with modern amenities, large bathroom with walk in shower, very comfortable bed and pillows, not the rock hard mattresses that Korea is famous for. I had the breakfast buffet which was rather...

Booked an executive floor queen and was upgraded to a suite upon check-in. A nice little surprise. Didn't have time to use most of the hotel amenities as we were just in Seoul for a couple days to visit friends. "Andrew from Bell" was great though, even entertained my 1 year old during check-in! Breakfast was also a big hit...

The location is not the best since you do need taxi to get here and no restaurant is nearby. You have to walk more than 15 minutes, but once you're at the major intersection, there are many, more than enough, but in the hot and humid weather or even cold weather...... This hotel is next to the Ritz-Carlton hotel. The...

Stayed here three nights on business. Located close to the center of Gangnam, there are literally hundreds of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The hotel room was very comfortable with good wifi. The health club is really extensive with spacious and well equipped gym, swimming pool, sauna, showers, golf range, TV lounge, and even a barber.

Stayed here for a couple of nights during April to attend the coffee expo held in coex. Good location near Gangnam station which allows you to get around the rest of Seoul. Rooms are a bit old fashioned but comfy, and buffet breakfast was great as well.

We stayed here after we come from China. In comparison to other hotel chains in Asia the Novotel in Gangnam is pretty basic, some remodelling might be helpful. The rooms have been simple and a bit dated. The staff at he check in counter have been very strict and not helpful. There are better options in Seoul. The positive thing...

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.
