Nice hotel, not so good restaurant

The hotel is nice, but the restaurant where I had breakfast twice and dined once is not very good. The room and bahrooom are small, but everything you need is there, and all was of good quality and working. One minus is the TV channels, no BBC/CNN or quality sports channels. Another minus was the bed which was too hard for my liking. If you prefer western food the choice for breakfast is limited to ordinary bread, two tyes of cheap jam, and a lttle cheese, plus omelettes. Not worth the price of W25.000. Had dinner once and will not try that restaurant again, the food was standard hotel quality, and I did not finish the main couse (fillet of beef) because it was not tasty.

Solid Business Hotel

I stayed in this hotel Nov 2013 while attending an exhibition at COEX. It has a shuttle that runs each morning dropping off at the COEX South entrance. Taxis to/from COEX are about $4. Rooms are a good size and very clean. I found the bed a little hard even though I generally prefer harder beds to softer ones. I went looking for an ironing board one day but they are not standard equipment in the room. Staff were very helpful every time I needed to interact with them. I enjoyed the food in the restaurants. Wifi was free and available everywhere in the hotel. I would stay here again.

Incredibly hard beds

The hotel was ok but not great for the price. Even though the location is in Gangnam, the nearest subway station is 2 blocks away. This might not seem very far but when the temperatures are below zero, it makes a big difference. The major shops in the Apgujeong and COEX mall were a 15 minute walk away. Everything inside the room was fine but the beds were the hardest beds that I have slept on in a long time which made the nights not so comfortable. However, the rooms are really clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

Incovenience location

Room is quite big but the double bed is just too small compared with other hotels where usually a king size should be provided. There is no no free coffee except only 2 packets of tea bag & no sugar. Other cheaper hotels provide such beverage.

Stayed for two weeks with my wife

Stayed for two weeks with my wife and 4 kids. Nice hotel. Very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Bed is a bit firm, but I think that is a Korean thing. Shower was great with good pressure and hot water. Airport bus #6010 drops off and picks up right in front of the hotel. Cost is 15,000 won (about $15 US). Taxis were always available in front of the hotel. Cost to take one to COEX is about 2,500 won for the 3-5 minute ride. It seemed to me the hotels at the COEX were alot more expensive. There are little convenience stores nearby as well as a number of restaraunts in the area. You have to be 13 years old to use the gym/pool. Subway is a bit of a walk, but that is what you do in Seoul, or you can just take taxis - the drivers all seem to know the hotel, and if not they all have GPS in their taxis now. All in all we had a good stay and would definately consider staying at this hotel again.
