The Hotel seems very new and has an indoor waterfall in the Lobby. The rooms a very new and comfortable with a lot of very usefull things like a free mobile charger, a Nespresso machine,... The view from my room was also very nice. It's very Close to the bars and Restaurants in Gangnam. I would definitely recommend this place.

This Hotel works on all fronts. The rooms are good, the food is fine, and, most importantly, the staff are very pleasant while being efficient. Unfortunately the lobby bar no longer stays open in the evening which is a loss. Strongly recommended.

The room is just perfect for my needs, comfortable bed, good pillows, air conditioning works well, good internet. If you want some air from outside you can partially open the window. It is well maintained and you can tell that...

We stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is nicely located on an happening area (a little bit far from the historical centre - about 45 to 60 minutes by metro) but great room, great breakfast and lunch buffet. We would definitely come back

Stayed here for business. The A/C was not working well. The rooms are a bit dated. Location was fine for the business meetings and dinners arranged but would look elsewhere in future for a fresher hotel.

Novotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming. The entire place is always clean and tidy. Great place to stay, it is not inexpensive. The breakfast buffet is good with a variety of types of breakfast foods.

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighbourhood Profile
Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
