Good convenient location to restaurants and the Ga
The hotel location is very convenient within walking distance to the Gangnam train station and many local food restaurants. This is our second time in this hotel. But this time the air-con in the room was not working so well. We had to set the temperature to the lowest 15 degrees and it took a long time for the room to cool down. The hotel lobby was a bit too warm even though it was not cold outside. In general the hotel staff were polite and friendly.

A trusted place to stay
I have stayed here many times and find it a convenient location with direct links with the airport limousine (coach) service. It is a trusted place to stay, I wouldn't say luxurious but the staff are attentive, food reasonable and a popular option for many business travellers and several airlines.

Solid, but could use some improvements
Food, staff service, pool
I thought my stay at the Novotel went very well. I have stayed at other hotels in the Seoul area, and personally I felt like the Novotel could use some improvements. I thought the room itself was just a little too small. And the bed itself was not a real queen, it was clearly 2 single beds put together. So although it was actually a little bigger, it had a small space in the middle. The food for the breakfast buffet was excellent. I loved all the options and it stayed open till 11 AM. And I enjoyed the pool as well, it was quiet and peaceful. The staff did an excellent job of bringing up wine glasses and plates, and they were very polite and respectful. Personally, I enjoyed the experience, but for that price I could probably go to other roomier hotels with better wifi. I did enjoy the staff and I really enjoyed the breakfast, so I would definitely consider coming back.

The location wise is great. It is in the city of Gangnam, so you have all the restaurants and bars around the hotel. Staff were nice.
