    Good Staff, Decent location, but Thin Walls ”

    Usually Tourists don't stay in Gangnam ,but if you are planning to stay in this area- this location is pretty good. There is a Airport bus drop off across the street, and the train station is a close walk away. The staff is great! However, we had trouble sleeping well. As of November 2019, there is construction next door and my room was located at the end of the hall next to the construction and we could hear them early in the morning (around 7am) . There is also a night club next door (the other side) which my friend who stayed on the other side of the hotel building could hear music from. One night, our neighbor room blasted music at 3am. The music was so unreasonably loud where we can hear the lyrics clearly. Not sure if its because the walls are thin, or the speakers they provide are too strong. I had earplugs on, but we still did not sleep well for the whole trip. While the hotel value is pretty good, I think next time I'd pay more to have a good nights sleep.

    First of all the hotel is located near downtown Gangnam, only 15min walk to Gangnam shopping district and 5-10min away from the subway. Staffs are very friendly, they offered great service and responded to most of our requests. The food and drinks from Leafy cafe on the first floor was very nice as well. Would recommend this hotel for sure.

    It’s easy to find, just a couple of minutes away from the station. Amazing mattress! Nice and clean. Good view over Gangnam (if the air is good). It was very clean. And the stuff was very friendly. Usual check out time is at 11, but if you ask the reception if you can check out later you will get a free hour and every other hour is 20,000Won extra (but you have to ask!!) we really liked and enjoyed our stay!

    Staff were very helpful and friendly. Even though concierge was not on duty yet, front desk helped me with my luggages. And front desk has initiative and provide me with a bottled water when I was flustered and tired after losing my wallet. The room is clean and furnishing modern and functional. The bathrobe were light and comfy. Toiletries nice.. Only grouse is breakfast offered is boring. Could have offered simple korean breakfast porridge with fish or a meat dish. But I have to pair porridge with western sausage, rather cold scramble eggs...

    Lovely minimalist and trendy hotel Very clean and nice warm toilet seats. Soho feeling However gym lighting is not friendly and feel stuffy after exercising There is direct airport bus service that drop opposite the hotel. I will stay here again and recommend to friends
