The location next to the bus stops and Gangnam Metro were very convenient for my sightseeing. Room was very comfortable. Really enjoyed my kitchenette, being able to make my own breakfast in the AM is important to me so providing a space with a fridge, two gas burners and cookware was very nice. Shower was refreshing! The hotel staff were very kind and helpful at the front desk and the guys working at the Rolling Pin Cafe in the lobby were great as well!
When I first checked in the bathroom wasn’t as clean as it could’ve been, found some hair that wasn’t mine. But after that the next days it was cleaned properly. The beds are really firm but the bedding is comfortable so I still had great rest despite the mattress being more firm than I would like.
Kitchenette which I thought was nice. Although I didn't use it this time, it's good to know it has one for future reference. The location was good as well. Although it was at a back alley of a larger street, access was not that bad. Only thing that extremely bothered us was the people smoking everyday right next to the hotel and couldn't believe how much cigarette butts were on the side of the street next to the hotel.
The cigarette butts left on the side of the street and the people smoking all day right next to the hotel. Another thing I could mention can be the water runs off of shower door towards the area where it should be dried. There is a drainage for excess water to run down right where the water is coming from the shower. But if there is a guard on the shower door at the bottom, I think it will prevent the water from coming out of the shower area. Otherwise guests have to constantly use towels to dry the area which is a waste of a towel. I did use my used towel to dry...but it can be a hassle and a waste of a towel.
Near the subway station
It was quite hard to locate, especially since I’m a foreigner. I had to ask help from a local.
Just it might be mentioned that the Hotel is located at a good place for traveling with the subway and when you look for some restaurants in Walking distance.
The rooms are old. The interriour defintely needs some massive makeover. Ist nice if you have a small kitchen. But there is no meaning anymore coming with this if there are no sufficient plates, cups, bowls, pots etc. Furthermore, the rooms are quite small. The photos at booking.com and on the hotel website are misleading in that regard. The internet access via WLAN breaks down quite often. So it is difficult to do some work via this. The hotel Elevators are a disaster. They are slow and not coordinated between the (just) two tubes. In result you may have waiting time > 5 minutes while rush hours.
This was my 2nd time staying here. Everything was good. You got all the basic things. Location is great, only a short walk to Gangnam station. There are plenty of cheap (for Gangnam standards) eating places. Staff is friendly and can speak english very well. It's also modern which is a big plus for me.
Elevators are slow and are sometimes hot in the summer.
A stay at Urban Place Gangnam places you in the heart of Seoul, a 5-minute drive from Hyundai Department Store and 9 minutes from Lotte Department Store. Featured amenities include a 24-hour business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
