              The view is good and there are free laundry machine within the resort. The staffs are well behaved. The houses are well equipped with cooking tools and its accessories and beautiful cups etc. The only thing is that you need to be alert and cautious if you travel out to town after evening time. There is no street lamps and the road is a little tiny. You might probably miss the entrance road to turn into the resort when you speed up your car with the mountainous area.

              I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Gangnam Star! The staff speak some English; it's literally around the corner from Yeoksam Station (Line 2, the green line) and the airport shuttle; it's a pleasant 10-minute(-ish) walk to Gangnam Station and everything in that neighborhood; there are a variety of cafes in the area and a Dunkin Donuts just a few blocks away, so breakfast is easy. The room had a nice flatscreen TV whose menu could easily be switched to English (handy for finding the free on-demand movies!), a mini refrigerator, and a hairdryer, and the provided toiletries were nice (no soap in the bathroom, strangely, so I just used the body wash). The bed is a bit hard, and there seems to be only one accessible outlet (which required moving the bedside table to reach); but overall, I'd definitely stay here again!

              We were a sport team of 14 people in 5 rooms with a double bed + a single bed by room. Early checking could be made, was very appreciatedby all team. We already took this hotel before, now it is renewed, the lobby is very big modern with a stay room. The staff is very helpful and comprehensive. The equipment of hotel is always top (air con, big TV, wifi, bathroom with all, etc..). Even for personal travel we book this hotel because it good place (Gangnam district, subway, airport shuttle, shops, banks, restaurants, hairdresser, Taekwondo shop, Kukkiwon, COEX, fastfood, etc...). 200 m from the main street, so rooms are very quiet. it will be perfect if breakfeast could be included.... Star hotel and Stay hotel are the same but Stay hotel in new one part.

              The hotel is very near to Yeoksam station (exit 3). Halal restaurants are also available within the vicinity, i.e. Yanggood BBQ Lamb and Kervan at Gangnam Finance Centre. We booked a family room and very satisfied with the condition of the room. The room & toilet are spacious, really good value for money. Will definitely choose this hotel again if we want to stay in Gangnam area.

              Worth the money and super convenient!”

              If you’re on a tight budget for hotels, I recommended Hotel Star. It is hard to find the first time you reach but the close proximity to the Yeoksam Subway Station is a major plus point. You can’t be too picky though the bed is a little board-like and cleanliness isn’t a priority (I think) but it’s a good hotel to stay in nonetheless. Many convenient stores and restaurants close by too!

              It is an old version of Hotel Stay. Basically, both Hotel Stay and Star are side by side. They have shared counters. Hotel Stay is modern, clean and nice place while Hotel Star is old and a place fine for not longer than a night. - Location is awesome; 1 min from Yeoksam Subway Station Exit #3 - Staffs are friendly and supportive - Rooms are old - Sheets clean and washed - Duvets don’t seem washed very often; really didn’t enjoy touching the duvets - Internet cowerage somewhat okay. Not every room has wifi router; shared among rooms - Didn’t hear neighbors voices - A lot of noise comes from the windows - Mattress is really hard - Toilet is humid - Smoke smell came to the room through the toilet vent in the night - was hard to sleep - Not so many restaurant choices, but okay - Draft Asahi and Guinness places are close

              Great great location, but it looks like motel.”

              I stayed 1 night in this hotel during my holiday. It is located in YeokSam Station (Line 2). It is so close to the station. That's the best thing in this hotel. Also, staffs are all nice people. And the room is big enough to stay 2 or 3 people, the bathroom is big, too. It looks like the motel, in my opinion. And the window is too small to see outside. But it's reasonable price makes me forgiving person.

              Well taken care of after a bad experience”

              One of those converted love hotels into a Korean style business hotel. Room looked clean but when I moved a chair, it was hugely dirty underneath with broken glass on the floor. Hotel is actually connected to a much more modern and boutiquey stylish hotel next door where the common check-in is. They immediately upgraded me to this new wing, which as far as I was concerned was an amazing room worthy of 5 stars everything. Only downside was that room didn't have an in-room safe.

              Clean, convenient love hotel”

              Location, neatness, appearance

              Came here to crash during Ultra Seoul - come here to be close to the Gangnam metro and surrounding nightlife. It IS a love hotel, though, so though clean and nice ... it's a tiny bit seedy like all those places are.
