The Novotel is a good hotel at a top location. On walking distance of many great restaurants in the Gangnam area. The hotel is good, and the staff is helpfull and service minded. Rooms a a good size, but the bathroom is small with a small bath/shower in one. For a guy like me (1,95m) too small.

Average business hotel with great location. Minutes walking away of the best Gangnam bars & restaurants area. The hotel itself is clean and modern but nothing special, just what you would expect from a Novotel elsewhere...

Even for western people such as me Japanese, all of customers will be satisfy all of this hotel service. However, compared with another hotel located in Gang Nam area, the fee is too expensive unfortunately. 世界的に有名ブランドであるノボテルはここ江南のホテルであっても西洋人だけでなく日本人でも充分に満足出来るものであるが、やはり高価。予算的に節約したい向きには、対面のベストウエスタン辺りが日本語が通じやすい事も含めて望ましいかと。

Very good quality food. Great service. Polite and responsive. Meeting rooms equipped with good facility and equipment. Except the view outside window is not too attractive. Good wifi everywhere. Bedroom included smartphone charger with adequate electrical sockets, wonderful ! 150 M from the nearest underground station.

When you are on business in Seoul this is the perfect hotel. Rooms are perfect, service impeccable. WIFI works perfect at no cost. Rooms are very quiet. The food is is good. Price of the wine is a little too high.

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.
