Rough Guide
Very convenient for Apgujeong’s classy shopping strip, though the twelvelane road outside is a conduit for traffic rampaging over the Han, rooms are so quiet that you’ll barely notice.
Lonely Planet
This large luxury hotel is an inconvenient walk from the subway but just a short taxi ride from the COEX Convention Centre.
Ask for a room in the new wing, and hit the Sky Bar early to grab seats with a river view.
