5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room is very big and the staffs are working with very good service and polite. The location is very good and we can take the lift directly go to the oakwood shopping mall. We are no need to go outdoor and can arrive all restaurants and shops. There are hundred of shops and restaurants. I enjoy so much.

Property is located in Gangnam. It is close to Samsung Subway station, a large underground mall and the Hyundai department store. The room was very clean and showed no sign of aging. The staff were all very helpful. No issues during my stay.

We checked in and got to our room and even though it was non-smoking, we could smell the smoke. We complained to the front desk and went out to eat dinner and they tried to deodorize and air clean the room but it still smelled like smoke by the time we returned. They gave us a little hard time stating all the other rooms were booked for the night and they couldn't do anything but we insisted to switch rooms since my daughter would not be able to sleep with the smell of smoke and they finally were able to find a room to switch. The front desk staff was really nice during the whole conversation and in the end were able to get results. It was an awesome stay once we switched. We got the double room with 2 full bathroom suite and it was very spacious, elegant, and clean. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms were spacious with really good water pressure, there was a full kitchen and even a laundry machine, it almost felt like home. The elevators had security where your key card could only access your floor and no other floor. There was an included luxurious fitness area with pool and sauna/hot tubs. It was full service with included change of clothes if necessary. The fitness area had ample equipment and good trainers available to help and train you. There was an adjacent casino if you like to gamble and it was also connected to the Coex mall which allowed you to shop without having to step outside. You really can't beat the location if you need to get anywhere. It's a little more expensive than other hotels but definitely worth it.

This hotel was fantastic a great location while we transfer our life to Seoul. Rooms were of a good size and the kitchenette was a a good addition. We brought our dog with us and he was able to stay here with us, so perfect. We did have a few noisy neighbours especially at the weekends, id suggest in future the staff should arrange the accommodation better when you have long staying guests, we were here for over a month. I wish i had organised a time for the housekeeping to come to the room especially with the dog it would have made life a little easier! The hotel offered weekly courses in flower arranging, plate painting and soap making, this was brilliant and a real highlight for me, plus they have DVD that you can rent, when your staying a long time this is a fantastic addition to a great hotel. Plus they also arranged a special “Christmas” evening for long staying guests, this was outstanding for a hotel to take the time to do this. The stand out has to be ALL the staff that work here, all so amazing and helpful.

I had a perfect stay and this hotel will be my definite recommendation. Perfect location - Just above Coex Mall where you will be able to find pretty much everything. Many eataries around this place inside and outside of Coex. One building away from City Airport which is connected through Coex. A train station, 2 Intercontinental Hotels, Casino are all connected. Hyundai Department store is also connected and the supermarket, bakeries, cake shops & food court on B1 are good. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was very decent with nice layout, spacious, clean, and quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped and very clean. Just need to be aware that Toothbrush will be charged and the Hotel WiFi was a bit slow / unstable sometimes.

Really amazing from start to finish. I checked in after a grueling taxi ride through Seoul and was met with a friendly, patient, and polite response by all of the staff. No silly question was met with any amount of contempt, just genuine compassion and eagerness to help. The staff remained this wonderful throughout my entire stay. My room (apartment) was so spacious I wish I had more time to enjoy all of it's features! It's really an oasis of comfort after spending the day shopping in the ever so conveniently located Coex underground shopping mall. (It's attached to the hotel building.) There's a cinema, aquarium, dozens of restaurants, and more stores than one can visit in a day. Coming back to my room was the highlight of my day. I loved the extra large bathtub (the only one I've found in Korea to fit my tall frame.) I also loved the shower which had a nice steam option if you enjoy a spa-like experience. The bed was also very comfortable too! Not as firm as I've found most Korean beds. Check-out was easy. The staff showed me how to reach the CALT which was a two minute walk for my long legs. I could check-in for my flight and check my bags right there. No wait! A quick luxury bus ride to the airport and I got to skip all the lines! It's really the best location is Seoul.

Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the Oakwood. We splurged on a two bedroom superior room, and it was much larger than I anticipated. The kitchen facility was wonderful, and the entire room was spotless. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room (at least on floor 7) was very quiet. Most impressive was the hotel staff; they were extremely accommodating, and genuinely enthusiastic in helping us in any way they could.

The good: The room size is awesome. Excellent for families with bigger children (ours are 11 and 14). The location is excellent. Entry into Coex and convenient for anything South of the Han River. The gym is nice. The pool is great. Service is good, especially the bellmen. The not-so-good: The room smelled like smoke. When we called down for an extra blanket, there were none. For two days. That seemed weird. Not sure why that was the case. Have never found that in any hotel. The water in the shower was extremely temperamental. We would likely stay again, given the size of the rooms. I just expected a bit more from Oakwood.

Oakwood Premier was the third hotel for the last trip but the best hotel. Nice location and convenient for food, shopping and transportation. Front desk was kind and knowledgeable. Bell boy was helpful. Room was wide and arrange and display was excellent. City air terminal was next door. But it’s very inconvenient to move heavy luggage. Hotel should provide luggage transportation for customer. There looked ventilation problem because I could hear air flow noise in everywhere. Usually Korean hotels they don’t renovate their facilities. Please update Oakwood sometimes. I want to come back.

Excellent choice for staying in Seoul:. It has spacious rooms, with good facilities. Very good cleaning services. Many choiches at the restaurant for breakfast. Handy underground, mall, restaurants, cinema, acquarium, library in Coex.
