Dear JimmyTeddy80, As we have all machines in rooms in English/Japanese, we were surprised on your comment, however, we found one bidet (on 15th floor) which was only in Korean. My apology and ensure you that we rectify immediately. Looking forward to welcoming you back. Charles LEE Resident Manager

stayed at the hotel on a few occasions and found it reasonable and easy to get to from incheon airport due to the availability of a KAL bus service. The rooms are ok and location is good for Gangnam area.

The hotel is located at a great location, very close to many stores, coffee shops and bars at Gangnam. The hotel is also located close to the main street where public transportation can get you to anywhere in Seoul. The service was excellent, and the room was very nice.

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.
