Well priced hotel right in the middle of Gangnam! 30 minutes walk to COEX, 15 minute walk to the shopping & nightlife. Hotel has a really nice indoor pool, sauna, gym, screeen golf, and driving range. The breakfast buffet wasn''t too bad, lots of western options for breakfast foods.

6/10 Good

Gangnam
I have stayed here a few times and usually I have good things to say but I realised that this time I was in a Standard room and my feeling was 180 degrees opposite to my normal positive feeling. It is not a question of "you get what you pay for" issue - the difference between room cost is marginal but the rooms are really poor as standard rooms but very good as superior rooms ...
