“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

My family stayed at this apartment hotel for 5 weeks. I have to say that staying at Oakwood made our time in Seoul very enjoyable. We stayed in a 3 bedroom/2.5 bath apartment. The apartment was nicely furnished and very big. The hotel has a nice work out facility with a friendly staff who are very helpful. My kids enjoyed having the Coex Mall right below the hotel which included restaurants, great shopping, and a large Mega Box movie theater. The subway is within a short walking distance. There is so much to see and do just in this area of town alone! The ladies who cleaned our apartment daily were sweet and did a great job of cleaning our rooms! My only complaint is that our a/c never really cooled our rooms to the temperature we desired but the staff worked hard to accommodate us. Overall, I would highly recommend Oakwood Premier!

Oakwood Premier Coex Center is in a very convenient location with easy access to airport buses, subways and some of the best restaurants and shopping areas in the Kangnam area. I stayed in a two bedroom with my kids and their grandparents. The room was very comfortable and large. The buffet breakfast has excellent Korean and Western fare but the waitresses could be more friendly. We also needed to extend our stay by one night and the hotel manager was able to accommodate us although they were pretty much at full capacity. I'd certainly stay here again my next time in Seoul with a group of people.

If you are planning to stay for a long time in Seoul and you are looking for a serviced appartment then I believe this could be the best choice. It is more expensive than other serviced appartment due to its quality and location. However, the location has a big advantage being next to COEX mall, one of the famous malls in Seoul, and COEX convintion center. On the other hand, the location might not be appropriate for those who work in the north side of seoul near city hall.
I stayed in one bedroom appartment which was spacious and fully equipped with all you need.

In view of the good reviews from Tripadvisor, we decided to just stay at Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas for the first night and remaining four nights at Oakwood Premier. Needless to say that its rate was slightly cheaper by about US$100 per night (without international breakfast for two). But there were other discomfort aspects to be compromised.

The one-bedroom apartment was spacious with a double bed room, shower area, separate living room with dining and cooking area. All one-bedroom apartments only came with queen size double bed, which was hard and uncomfortable. We were told by the reception that we had to upgrade to two-bedroom apartment if we want twin beds!

The room became stuffy after a while as aircon was only made available during summer. Hence, we were advised by the reception again to open the window at the bed room for ventilation. However, the traffic noise from the facing main road can be quite disturbing in the night. With the hard small bed and traffic noise, we cancelled all the remaining nights the next morning and moved back to Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas despite the cost as we wanted good sleep.

Room Tip: Most of the apartments faced the main road, request high floors to minimise the noise.

Booked the cheapest room, checked in at way past 10 pm, and got … UPGRADED!

Suddenly I was the master of a one-bedroom deluxe apartment so big that it really sprawled ---- a corner suite on the 22nd floor with two bathrooms (well, one-and-a-half), a king bed, two huge closets, a kitchen, a bar counter, a dining area, a living area, a working desk, a dresser table, two flat-screen TVs, a tiny laundry room, two armchairs, and sweeping views from four large windows of the COEX/Gangnam area and the Han River. It’s a bit much for a three-night stay, but luxuries are appreciated on intense business trips.

The room décor is clean and understated, with a welcome splash of color here and there. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, pots, pans, glasses of various shapes, culinary tools I don’t recognize and even a big pair of scissors for those who left their Swiss knives at home. The refrigerator is big and blessedly empty (no annoying mini-bar goods-for-sale). But do note that two bottles of water are provided only upon arrival ---- you’ll have to buy more for your daily drinking supply (there is a convenience store in the basement, along the hallway leading to the COEX underground mall), though I’m told that tap water is drinkable in Seoul. (Didn’t try it, though.)

There are cabinets and drawers galore, and lots of table surfaces to hold your documents, books, charts, maps and other goodies. There’s also lots of light ---- lamps and overhead lights scattered generously through the suite, not to mention the ample natural light from the four windows if you feel like throwing open the blinds. The glassed-in shower area is also spacious enough to accommodate big-elbowed bathers, and the push-button steam function was a welcome extra-value treat.

The room does take some mastering. The light switches are a bit fussy (took me a while to figure out how to turn on the two bedside lamps), and the bedroom closet doors are the sliding type that are unnecessarily awkward to handle and prone to loud bangs and bumps. The closet lights have motion sensors, but they were so erratic and hard to activate that I frequently found myself scrounging through my suitcase in the dark. The airconditioning was difficult to adjust, with different instructions applying to the controls in the living/kitchen area vs. those in the bedroom area. I found the room a little bit on the warm and stuffy side on the day when it was 10 to 15 degrees C outside, but pleasantly cool and comfortable when the outside temp dropped to zero C.

The bed was perhaps too firm, but tolerable. The pillows, however, were far too soft, and I had to pile up all four pillows to get better support --- and even then I’d wake up with a sore neck. (Maybe there are other pillow options, but I didn’t have time to ask around.) The big armchair in the living area looked comfy, but wasn’t --- the stiffer-looking couch was a far more relaxing choice.

Small nitpicks: a couple of metal shower parts detached easily; it takes at least 3 minutes for shower water to heat up properly; the trashcan in the kitchen had a broken lid. The dining table area is relatively dark, in contrast to the rest of the room. Oh, and the main door had to be shut firmly to lock automatically --- it’s too easy to leave the room accidentally unlocked.

The Oakwood has no grand lobby, just a small, quiet and softly lit front desk reception area on the 5th floor and a small waiting lobby at street level. Service is however brisk and efficient, and friendly in a quiet and unobtrusive way. (A request for extra writing stationery was handled warmly and promptly.)

Breakfast is served in another softly lit hall, also on the 5th floor, but features a fairly limited selection (a far cry from your typical Asian buffet spread). No fried rice, no separate egg station that I could detect. Nonetheless, the food was fine, as was the self-serve coffee (push a button for cappuccino or latte, if that’s your fancy).

The hotel is in the bustling commercial neighborhood of Gangnam, surrounded by office towers and linked to an underground mall (it was easy for me to run to a decent food court for some kimchi rice without borrowing an umbrella, since it was raining steadily outside). Perfect location if you have a conference or trade fair at the COEX center. However, it’s rather far from central Seoul and its attractions.

Overall, the Oakwood is a wonderful pick for a long stay, and likewise great for a short business trip (as in my case). The nitpicks I cited above are minor concerns. Best of all, I enjoyed the room, the little luxuries and all the space, space, space. That goes far in a crowded, hyper-busy city like Seoul.

Room Tip: Higher floors have nice views. Ask for a corner room if that's possible.
