Great Business Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 13, 2005

The hotel was located in the business and commercial district of Gangnam. I stayed here when I had business meetings in Seoul and thus benefit from its location. If you're visiting Seoul for a vacation I would stay at a different location since there is not much to explore in this area. Hotel service was great.

Directions: Gangnam
