The location of the hotel is very far from the city and tourist areas. But there are many eateries within walking distance from the hotel and the train station is within walking distance as well. I enjoyed my stay in the club room which was modern and renovated - back in 2011. This time we chose to stay at the...

Handy hotel for business located in Gangnam. Meeting rooms available and the hotel is within easy walking access to shops, restaurants and entertainment. Live music in the lobby is a nice touch in the evening.

This hotel is perfectly situated in the newer area of Seoul (south of the river Han), and very close to Gangnam. It is within a short walking distance to the subway and hundreds of restaurants and cafes. The hotel service is impeccable. I could not imagine a better service. This is now the 2nd time we stayed at the RC...

I travel to Seoul for business quarterly, and this is my favorite place to stay. The staff is second to none, the hotel is beautiful, and it is convenient to the city. I will definitely go back. Great places to eat within as well.

This was probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at. I was completely spoiled. Room service 24/7 and it's fast. The staff is very courteous and attentive. Very simple to take a walk outside and explore Seoul as you're in the city center. I don't usually stay in 5 star hotels but I decided to treat myself once, and I...

This is one of the most amazing hotels I have visited, within a city environment. The bars and restaurants were very nice and the staff attention was over the top. Now, the rooms were not as amazing as the lobby or the restaurants, but they were very clean and well maintained.

I think the brand of Ritz carlton guarantees that the hotel is one of the best hotels in the city. My first stay at Ritz carlton was so impressed, I choose here for staying with my friends. This is an old hotel, the room is quite old, but it was well-maintained. I had an extra bed in my room, so...

The lobby was absolutely gorgeous and the entire staff was very courteous. The rooms were pretty average, a bit dated like many of the reviews noted here but it was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice. It wasn't a spectacular experience, although I suppose that is to be expected. Having gone through the Ritz Carlton "Legendary Service" training and...

Overall I enjoyed my stay there. Since I needed to catch the early morning flight I had to leave the hotel 6am. When I got on the taxi at the hotel, the hotel clark kindly passed a little box as breakfast.

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.

Its classical, antique-style design is inspired by that of the 18th century Palace of Versailles, while its unique exterior, which soars upward light a series of steps, following the contours of the land on which it is built, has become one of Gangnam’s local landmarks. A newly opened entrance, offering access directly from Sinnonhyeon Station, along Bongeunsa-ro, has added still further to the hotel’s convenience.
