    « Generally speaking a nice hotel except.... »

    Stayed for 4 days in November (11/15 to 11/19). Generally speaking, a nice hotel, good location, easy access to subway, front desk staff very helpful, clean room. However, there are a few issues: 1. When I left, I was in a hurry, I ask the front desk staff to e-mail me the bill, so far, I did not receive it. They have my email address, but no action. 2. As I left really early in the morning and in a hurry, I forgot to bring one piece of clothing, it should be in the room. Again, nobody contact me. No action. 3. I check the hotel website, I cannot find a email address for them. There is a form to fill, but I cannot enter my email.

    « Good for business »

    Spent only one night in Seul at the Best Western Gangnam for business. So I wouldn't be fair by rating than less than ok since my experience there was ok with a quiet room, , good internet and an assorted breakfast.

    « Good hotel, not sure I've slept on a harder bed »

    Hotel was clean, inexpensive and in a decent location. Staff was friendly. I wasn't able to get the room cool, even opening the window on a 35F night. I had to remove the rainfall shower head to stand up in the shower and I'm only 6' tall. There was subway station a short walk away, but the 2 line is really about 15 minutes. Wifi was good and fast as necessary for a business traveler, and the concierge was quick to get a taxi and translate destination.

    « OK for a short business stay, nothing special »

    Can't really complain or positively comment on anything in particular. This is really a standard, no-frills business hotel in the Gang Nam district. Not bad, not great. Room was OK, bathroom reasonable, bed was OK. Breakfast was pretty good. Language is an issue with the room service staff who have a hard team understanding English, but after a few calls up-and-down, they got my order right. Mini bar was relatively empty, unfortunately.

    « Good hotel in a top location »

    Good, clean and convenient hotel. Good value for money, as international chains are always more expensive. Location is excellent very close to Gangnam avenue, with thousands places for dining within a short distance. It os served by KAL limousine to/from ICN with bust stop at the front of the hotel. Convenient for metro line 9 as well. Room, bigger than Asian standard, complimentary bottled water and good wifi connection are the pros. Bed is really hard, we could hardly sleep well, some personal items such as razors and tooth brush for sale and the cons. Staff is willing to help but they don't speak as fluent English as Occidentals would like but they try...

    « Very Clean and easy access subway »

    I booked this hotel through tripadvisor. I reservation this with breakfast included. This is more cheap rather than you buy breakfast separately. When I check in the hotel, staff was very kind but not enough English conversation. Very good food and you can walk to GangNam main St. by 10 minute. Very clean and modern business hotel near Unjoo station in Gangnam. The rooms were pretty spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a bit of privacy issues but nothing serious for business travelers. The bedding was super comfortable and the big floor to ceiling windows that opened partially was nice. Hoped for more outlets but nothing bothersome. Wifi worked great. Cons: The walls were so thin that I heard sneezing and voices from other rooms. Woke up to curtain rolling sounds from other rooms thinking that someone was in my room. The hotel does not provide any room service! They have a cafe in the premise but closed in between breakfast/lunch/dinner. The hotel driveway is in the back of the building which is VERY uncomfortable for pick up and drop offs. Had to get off on the street with cars honking from behind. There are a lot of restaurants and bars across the street from the hotel.

    « 3nights stay in Gangnam : expo and shopping district »

    This hotel is best provided in room facilities with adequate power outlets, USB ports for any kinds of modern gadgets to plug-in. The room space so wide with comforts. The restaurant for breakfast is very nice with both korean and international breakfasts. The fitness center is well maintained with equipments and things to comforts during workout. One disadvantage is just only the complimentary ready to dronk inroom coffee is not OK without creamy or artificial sweeteners.

    « Cozy hotel »

    Hotel staff are very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable about local places& shops. I didn't have to walk around to find a place for dine out. The bus stop for a bust to Incheon Airport is just in front of the hotel.

    « Mr phil »

    Very nice room, clean, cozy. Very accomodating front desk. Highly recommended ?? 3min. Walk to a variety of korean restaurants. Not too much shops around the hotel. Access to the limousine bus is just outside ??

    « Brilliant hotel »

    Staff are brilliant and more than happy to help in whatever way possible. The rooms were nice, clean and not too small. The location is superb, just around the corner from a hive of activity- loads of shops (particularly cosmetics) and a wide range of restaurants and cafes! Two subway stations and a few convenience stores are a few minutes away walking from the front of the hotel. Breakfast was fantastic- lots of choice. I highly recommend this hotel to all, whether you're coming for business or for a holiday!

    « Quite hotel »

    Convenient hotel to stay in if visiting events at Coex as the metro station Sinnonhueon (line 9) is about 10 minutes down the road (turn right when you come out of the hotel). The hotel is also served by the KAL airport bus with the stop right outside the hotel. Staff were helpful although if you use the Business Centre, you will need to pay for printing. You can also take the Airport Express train to either of the two international airports in Seoul.

    « Decent hotel at a competitive price »

    Stayed for 3 nights on a biz trip. Conveniently located with service by the KAL limousine bus from the airport. Room was clean but compact. Breakfast was ok for this class of hotel. Only minor point .. even 30 minutes before closing their breakfast service several items in the (limited ) buffet were empty and were not being replaced .. even after asking ..so i felt cheated .. i felt like asking also part of my money back .. so get to breakfast at or before 9 am. Frontdesk staff was helpfull in arranging transportation for me. Some staff level of english was indeed quite poor..but ok for me. Overall would recommend because of price and location ..

    « Nice Hotel »

    A nice hotel. Nothing over the top but it did its job and the price was fair. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The WiFi worked and the beds were comfortable. It was easy to get there from an airport (the bus brought you right there) and it was close to public transportation and things to do.

    « Good! »

    calm, clean and very modern room (equipped with AC, very important during summer). Friendly staff working at the hotel. The bar offers pricy but delicious cocktails. Breakfast is suitable for all kind of tastes: korean-dish and european food. Nothing to complain about

    « NICE FOR BUSINESS TRAVEL »

    I have been in this hotel during July 2016. The hotel il located not far away from two metro stations of line num. 9, and it is 10 minutes walking distance from Gangnam square. The check was fast even if the english was not fluent. The room was large clean and with good air conditioning. The same for the bathroom. The gym is good with modern machines. The restaurant offers excellent variety of food with good quality. WIFI is free of charge and very fast. It is the perfect hotel for business travelers. Fast clean and easy. I will come back here for sure.

    « Son's wedding held here! »

    Lovely venue for my son's wedding up on a rooftop dining area - delicious! foods and tasteful decor. Our rooms for the night where comfortable, tastefully decorated and very reasonably priced for a large city like Seoul. Staff were friendly and helpful as well.

    « Relatively Good »

    Stayed here for three nights with my brother. Good central location for nightlife. Hotel is boutique sized and the rooms are pretty small, we had twin room and it was too small for two men to share, especially the bathroom. Well priced amongst other hotels in the area.

    « Great area! Great hotel! »

    Just a perfect hotel a very central area, for restaurants, bars and shopping. Clean, rooms very modern and furnished, and staff extremely gentle. You can find also. Rey nice pieces of modern art. Subway is just 100 meters away! Must come and stay! Really Suggested

    « Director of Export Sales »

    My worst hotel experience over the last 2 years, staff at the front desk lacking common sense approach. After a 4 nights stay in the hotel, at check out i requested a 30 min complimentary room / shower, for later in the day (b4 flying back to europe). The morning staff confirmed to me it would be okay. The night shift staff argued and argued that they could not grant me a room for 30min, in other words, they said they could not keep their colleague's agreement. Uaw, not much to add further on. I could have not experienced worst customer service in recent times.

    Front desk is helpful and speaks English. They provide umbrella when it rains. We stayed for 7 nights and was very pleased with this hotel. Very near all kinds of food places and short walk to the metro.

    « You get what you pay for »

    Can't complain for the price I paid. I guess this is one of the more affordable hotels if one would still want to stay in an international chain. The location is very central, in the Gangnam area. The first room I was given was a non-smoking room but there was smell of smoke, so I changed rooms. The second room was good when I checked in, but when I returned to the hotel at night, I could smell smoke, not sure if this is via the air ventilation. The room is comfortable and provided with complimentary bottled water, which is appreciated. The only thing I am not used to is that they did not offer a shower facility once you checked out and returned in the evening for a moderately long international flight.

    « A nice high standard basic hotel »

    Its not a hotel that is fancy but it has everything you need of high quality standard. Rooms are compact however they are perfectly adequate, good breakfast, and transfer to the airport. To be honest i didn't spend much time in the hotel, but its a perfect location for Gangnam.

    « Great hotel, great location »

    Stayed here on a 2 day business trip to Seoul. Not a prancy hotel, but the service was very proffesional. Easy and curtious check in. I had bokked a suite trough Expedia at a fair price, and got a room at the 14th floor. Nice view of the city towards Seoul tower. Needed a ironboard, got it immidiatly. The aircon was sentralized, so it was not possible to adjust the in room temprature, but they rectified it offering me a big fan. Breakfast was plentiful, barservice and menu in restaurant was more than adequate. Prices was what You would expext in a hotel. No worries, a lot of stores and eateries near by were one could dine for a few bucks. All in all a nice experience.

    « Nice hotel, good location »

    We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. Subway is closeby and lots of restaurants and shops at walking distance. Friendly staff and good service. We stayed at top floor and the room got quite hot, but a fan was placed immediately upon our remark. We recommend this hotel for tourist purpose.

    « Worst Attitude Ever »

    During my stay in Seoul, I stayed in three 4-star hotels of similar price. I expected this hotel would be at least average from the review. The room and the location is really great but there are few things that I was disappointed during my stay: 1. Complimentary Shuttle Bus Service ? It is stated on the hotel's website and other booking sites that the hotel will provide free area shuttle. I asked the front desk at three different times. At the first time, a woman with a pretty smile said that I should book the shuttle bus one day before. So after I confirmed where and when I want to go, the second time when I go to the front desk, the other woman pointed to the screen showing the KAL timetable. Obviously, she couldn't understand English well so I gave up talking to her. The third time I see another women, and she said there is no area shuttle. Can someone please tell me if they have experience in taking the shuttle? 2. There is ICE Dispenser in the corridor but it was not working. 3. I asked for a fork, a guy asked me to get it from the restaurant. So I went down to the restaurant but no one was there. Then, I went back to the room and called for assist, the guy who picked up the phone was very impatient and said "I told you to get it from the restaurant!" His attitude makes me feel like I do something really wrong and my request is over the line. I was quite disappointed and speechless at that time as this is not the service I expected from Best Western. - Pros: 1. I sleep quite well, the room is quite. The room's insulation is really great as even if my room is close to the elevator, I could not hear any noise. 2. The hotel is right in the middle of the two subway stations. 3. Airport shuttle to and from ICN is right in front of the hotel, that means, you don't have to get your luggage to cross the street. This was the main reason why I booked this hotel. -- I am totally disappointed to this stay, and this is the worst hotel during my stay. I see no reason of booking the hotel again. I stayed in few other Best Western hotels before and they are average. I won't consider Best Western hotels out of U.S. again after this stay. One more tip: If you would like to take the subway, you may go left or right to either station. However, I highly recommend you to exit from Eonju station when you go back to hotel. It is less steep and the distance to hotel is shorter.

    « Standard hotel in a great location »

    Walking distance from the bars, restaurants and shops of Gangnam, and well connected by public transportation, this hotel is in a good location for exploring Seoul. The hotel itself is very average, rooms are basic but fine for a few nights, and staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is pretty extensive and reasonably priced. Definitely not a luxury choice, however, it's convenient and comfortable.

    « Not Good value for money »

    Breakfast is awful, the rooms are tiny, very few plugs. Location is good. but i would not bring my wife or children to this one. There are better options so please find them. Next time i will spend more money and go to a proper grown up hotel

    « Very good hotel »

    Very good quality overall like all Best Western Hotels. Well located a quarter of a mile from the metro station. Going down the boulevard to the junction, a small street on the right and left, full of restaurants, cheap and nice. Hotel staff is very nice, typical korean, helpful and smiling. One hitch: breakfast. Strangely enough, very expensive. Just by yourself some bread at the Paris Baguette baker shop (that small street, right at the bottom of the boulevard) and coffee at the 7/11 supermarket next door and take your break fast in your room, using the kettle supplied.

    « Perfect Location »

    Stayed here before for business. The hotel is ideally located close to the metro, shops and plenty of places to eat and drink. This area is very vibrant, safe with many young people around. The only downside if you are being driven is the evening traffic on the main road outside. The rooms are a little on the small size for Asia. However the price is very reasonable compared with other hotels like the Novatel and Ritz Carlton opposite. My room was quite despite facing the front road, clean and the free WiFi works very well. The aircon turned heater worked well which was convenient since it was very cold outside. There is a restaurant which I did not use, but I did have room service once plus a snack in their bar area which was extremely quite, good for meetings. My only criticism was that there was a kettle plus 2 bags of coffee, but no tea (not that I drink tea), and also no milk or any sorts or sugar.

    « Excellent location and superb service! »

    Super service, very friendly and helpful receptionists. Breakfast was excellent and five minute walk to the main shopping street and vibrant restraunt district. Easy to get to and from the airport via the very comfortable and cheap ($16 AUD) limousine bus service (1 hour travel time from airport). My bed was on the firm side but that is normal for Korea. The views of the cityscape are stunning, request a room with a view!

    « Great hub, nice room and only need to care about money exchange »

    Location more than convenient. Gangnam is within walking distance. Plenty of food choice. Subway station is also easy to reach. The subway from and to Gimpo airport is No 9 line. You can take the express one that will not stop endlessly. The subway station is about 500 meter away, easy to recognize, a tall building with many holes. Sleep quality is very good in the hotel. Comfortable bed, tidy restroom, international outlet. Not stable WIFI. I like the view from the room. Exchange 350 dollar, they made mistake 2 times, giving me 60% of the money. I don't expect that. So be careful to count the cash they give. The breakfast is of good value. Sufficient choices.

    « Gangnam Style »

    The hotel is located conveniently in Gangnam District so there are plenty of restaurants and shops available. It is fairly convenient to the subway stations. The KAL limousine bus service to Incheon Airport stops at the hotel which is VERY useful.

    « A well sleep »

    I reached the hotel at 11pm. Check-in took my group only 3 minutes. Nice staff who guided us nearby restaurant at late night. Rooms were very comfortable. But it is quite small. Good to stay for business trip I will stay here next time too.

    « Best Western - good location and warm people »

    I stayed for 3 night in the 3rd week of August. Its very convenient for business visits to Gangnam area, has almost all types of eating & Drinking joints nearby. Only let down was 1. no Tea bags or sugar in the room. They keep only the premix coffee powder. If you ask for Tea bag or Sugar, they politely regret. ( we North Indians are more fond of Tea than Coffee) 2. During the breakfast, if a simple item like Milk or Corn Flakes have finished ( there was a big group when I visited); the waiting staff will not replenish. Even upon asking to get something, they wil say,"we don;t have"

    « Good Decent Hotel »

    Hotel staff is courteous. Hotel room is good in size. AC is good. View from room is not great. Hotel is on slope so getting to subway stations nearby is quite a task Also main bus stop nearest to Hotel is about 10 mins walk.

    « Very welcoming staff, good location and reasonable. »

    This hotel was super clean, the staff very helpful and pleasant with good English skills. It is a short walk to the line 9 subway, with tons a places to eat and enjoy a cold beer close to the hotel. It was really nice have a place this in a foreign country, the rates were very reasonable.

    « Perfect location »

    The rooms are quite large and well furnished. Clean large bathroom, though the bath itself was a bit on the small side. Hotel staff is friendly and gives excellent advice about the immediate area of the hotel. And while their English might not always be perfect, they put a lot of effort into trying to help you. In terms of transport it's well located; Sinnonhyeon subway station is a few minutes walk away, making it a good base to explore the city. And the airport shuttle bus stops at the front door, which avoids you having to navigate the subway with your pile of luggage! Also nearby there are multiple convenience stores, some of which seem to be open 24/7. And just before you reach the subway station/Take Urban there is a little street that seems to go-on forever with nothing but pubs and restaurants. Enjoyable neighbourhood to hang around at night, and seemed quite safe as well.
