Uncomfortable, noisy, bad/no wifi
big bathtub , excellent location
The hotel and room looked very appealing, however it did not live up to this. The beds were very hard (even for a korean hotel), the wifi was one bar, turning of the lights turned off the outlets (so i could not charge my phone), the walls were exceptionally thin.

Near subway station but far from tourist sites
Huge TV, Huge bath tub, near Yeoksam station
Except for breakfast, the hotel provided most basic amenities. Be sure to remind them to make up your room when you leave the hotel if you don't wanna come back to a messy room. Staff spoke very little English but were very willing to help. Overall, our stay was pretty satisfactory, but in the future, I would rather stay in a hotel that is closer to most tourist sites (even though the hotel was very near to Yeoksam station, our commute to tourist sites were on average 45min.) The bathroom had a sauna/shower and bath tub/jacuzzi, but neither the sauna nor the jacuzzi worked - still, we were able to use the shower and the tub (without the whirlpool).

Very near to the subway
Location, location, location
This is not a hotel for fussy travellers. It's rather dark and dim in e room. Only a small window which is pasted over with so obscure the view. Anyway there isn't much of a view at its direction, it was facing e building nxt to it. This hotel is more like a live motel. However its location is great as it is close to the yeoksam station.. For its price, I'd say it's reasonable as it's just a stop away fr gangnam. But honestly, I'd rather stay in a betta hotel further away fr gangnam than stay here. E room is so dimly lit it gives an eerie feeling. Perhaps it's due to the rundown of the hotel.

Does the job
Location, Location, Location (near metro and gangnam)
We were happy to see the hotel within 50 meters of stepping out of the metro. After a long-day, the last thing i want to do is walk farther to our hotel. The hotel is more like a motel, but prices in Gangnam are high and this does the job. The room overlooked an office building, so we couldn't open the windows without feeling watched. The main light is a dim light and the other lights were not wired in or working. The bed was ok - box spring type. The furniture seemed....well, we didn't want to touch the furniture. Interestingly - we got the double, but it came with 1 queen and a 1 twin bed. The walk to Gangnam and Sinnonhyeon - the main area for "Gangnam Activities" isn't long.
