Pros: 1) Great location, walking distance to the palace and Myeongdong via underground passage. 2) Metro entrance is just around the corner. 3) Great free breakfast at the club lounge if you are platinum or above on BonVoy. 4) Helpful English speaking staffs. Cons: 1) Gym is not in the same building, you will need to cross the street. 2) Tacky weird décor...The bed is in the center of the room with giant Pixar like lamps and see-through shower stalls. I just think they need to update their rooms. Overall, great hotel if you are looking for supreme location but if you want to relax in your room probably not the best. Price is affordable but next time will stay in Gangnam as they have newer hotels there.

Terrible. First 3 nights restaurant full - and not with guests. If you like a drink by the glass - 2 wines and 2 whiskeys available. If you smoke - no smoking anywhere...even outside. Need to press clothes - no iron in room....can borrow but 3 hours wait, or pay for pressing. Noisy due to activities in park. Pool and gym in another building.
