Neighbourhood
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.

I stayed here for a week on a business trip. The room was great, with a nice view of the city and all the amenities you'd expect. Do keep the nets over the windows though - I managed to get a mosquito in the room which munched on me all night long! Location is perfect - right

A room is small(22sqm) but clean, quiet, and comfortable but a little stuffy without opening windows. A good sized walk-in shower. Close to a metro station(line 2, inner city circle line). I’ve heard there’s also a bus from the airport to the hotel. From the hotel, it takes

Debbie, depends ... they typically have 2 single beds in the room and "in theory" there is space for a spare bed. But they are happy to add an extra bed. Room is really cramped then if you travel with big suitcases....

As you come out after collecting your luggage the bus ticket counter to the left about 50- 100 feet away. Another option is to approach the Information desk at the terminal. The bus stops right outside the terminal almost across from the ticket counter.

Hello, Do read my review on this hotel. Further to my review, I would like to add that this location is in the centre of the Financial District. Are you here for business? If not, at night, and weekends, it is Extremely Quiet. Most shops do not open weekend, however, there is a starbucks at one end of the street where the hotel is , and KFC at the other end of the same narrow street. During weekends, other shops are closed including those that sell Fried Chicken. The subway Yeoksam is just a subway station. the next stops then are where the ACTION IS. i suggest you go further into Gangnam , there are hotels there.
