Feels like I am home with my dear wife , is nice and comfy . Variety of restaurants downstairs and and huge shopping mall beside you. I really enjoy the trip , and Oakwood premier I will visit u in the near future .

I stayed a week for business and very pleasant with Oakwood Hotel. The location is very convenient in Gangnam and connected to the CoEx mall and subway station. The room is clean and spacious. The kitchen was great and has everything you need and also have washer !! Seven luck casino voucher and T-money card are plus.

I resided at the Oakwood Premier Hotel at the World Trade Center in Seoul, South Korea for seven months while on a business assignment and I could not be more pleased with my accommodations, the staff and hotel amenities! Also, the entire city block under the hotel is a huge shopping mall that provides access to two different subway lines. Over a seven month period, I really got to know much of the staff and I truly felt like family. The General Manager, Mr. Shim, was very accessible and down to earth; so easy to talk to and we soon became good friends. He would personally host a social gathering about once a month for the long-term residents and it was one of the highlights of my stay there. The food at the hotel restaurants was fabulous, and I especially enjoyed the breakfast buffet! Also the mall was loaded with great places to eat like Pauli's pizza pub. I also enjoyed the fitness center and the men's spa (two hot water pools, a cold water pool, a steam sauna and dry sauna, plenty of showers, men's grooming area, barber, and tv lounge. Everything was provided except the gym shoes! The hotel staff were truly exceptional, setting the standard for excellence in customer service. For example, while enjoying one of the monthly socials, I experienced a medical problem that required a trip to the hospital emergency room in an ambulance. I was there without family and could not speak the language; just imagine! Mr. Shim and two of the hotel staff (Ms. Jay and Ms. Joy) saw to it that I was well taken care of. Ms. Jay rode with me in the ambulance and was my interpreter. She stayed with me the whole time! I was rushed out of the hotel so quickly that I did not have my id or any funds or credit cards to pay the bill. Ms. Joy showed up with the equivalent of over $1000 US dollars from the hotel to pay my bill (of course I reimbursed the hotel at the first opportunity). It all turned out good, and Ms. Jay and Ms. Joy rode back to the hotel with me in a cab to make sure I made it back ok. I am not the only one to experience such exceptional treatment at the Oakwood; there were several others there that I met who had their own stories to tell. The hotel was fabulous and a really great place to stay, and the staff provided by far the best customer service I have ever experienced. The Oakwood Premier under the direction of Mr. Shim has surpassed the gold standard - they are the very best in my book! Jim Tatum

Location: The hotel is at very convenient location. Transportation is easy with subway station (Saumsung station) and plenty of bus routes available. There are Coex right under the hotel and Hyundai Deaprtment close by, Lotte duty free, which make it easy for shopping as well. Tons of restaurants in these shopping areas. Staff: Very professional and prompt services. Flawless services provided. Room: By far the best hotel room I have been in. The room was bachelor with full function kitchen. Unlike other hotel rooms I have been which were much smaller room, this room took a bit of time to cool it to the temperature I desired. South Korea in late July is very hot and steamy, thus slow but working a/c was the only flaw I found in this hotel room. Other than this, the room itself was perfect, great view nice interior high end appliances in the kitchen. I would have given 95/100 in percentile.

I had an amazing experience staying at this hotel. The rooms were spaciously laid out and the view of the city was rather spectacular from the higher floors. The whole experience totally felt like a home away from home where I could do everything from my laundry in the apartment to taking DVDs from the front desk to watch at night with my friend. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel staff helped me secure booking for a visit to the DMZ as well. I also have to say that the staff were rather friendly and helpful. I would especially like to thank Ben Lee who helped me with every bit of my stay at the hotel right from checking-in to getting the best room at the best rate and also taking quality time to explain the rich culture and heritage of South Korea. He suggested some great places that I could visit and I would like to give him a five star rating for exceptional service that he offered me and my friend. Overall, I had a wonderful stay at the Oakwood Premier and I hope to go back there soon!

Dear GM I dont normally write review but this time I must write review for the best hotel in Korea It was most beautiful experience in my life. It was my first time to use oakwood. Room was very spacious and staff were well trained. Specially thanks to Lisa. It was my first time to visit Korea so i didnt have much information about Korea. So i was asking about things to do in Korea and she recommended tourism spots and some foods(samkyukssal-pork belly was wonderful). It was great business trip and once i get back to Korea I will definitely stay in Oakwood again. Thank you GM, Lisa and all staff Best Regards Tom

The newly renovated Oakwood Premier Coex apartment hotel offers excellent value for the room size, full kitchen with vanity top, and the its excellent personal touch for frequent returning guests as compared to the other two Intercontinental hotels nearby. Front counter staff immediately recognized my return for every visit. I received quick attention and efficient check-in service from Cathy. Customer service Sally and Lucy had arranged for a room upgrade to premier studio. More lovely surprises awaits when I got to my room, a nice bottle of red wine and a fruit plate was delivered by team manager Sean and Lucy. Nice contemporary decor with full height drapers that darkens the room. Super comfortable bedding with four big pillows, a full size fridge, the type that you will use at home, double wash basins and plenty of storage space for clothing and generous wardrobes with sliding door. To complete it, you get a large LCD TV with DVD player and a washing machine, Sound proofing was excellent as I can hardly hear any noise from the corridor or adjacent rooms. This time I was surprised the air condition was not turn off ( as in summer to conserve energy) and I was able to lower the temperature at night. Front desk Jaden had arranged for engineering to help me and explain the temperature controls. I had also gotten good assistance from Jane who help with ribbon wrapping for some corporate gifts I brought along. Frequent stay at this hotel will get you instant recognition and plenty of personal touches. I will miss the good services of Sophie and Ashley who had left recently, and Zech. However on my checkout day, Manager Jin made it a point to be present to ensure all went well. You can almost feel that your local Korean host was present to send you off. In this respect, Oakwood Premier Coex staff themselves had done well to make up for the turnover of their colleagues. If you want a blend of business hotel efficiency and enough space to feel at home with all the plush furnishings, then Oakwood Premier Coex will not disappoint you with its excellently trained staff. This combination together with the City Terminal for rapid check in, immigration clearance and direct airport bus service is hard to beat, The one thing that Oakwood should include in their next renovation is built-in USB charging points on the wall.

Booked their 2 bedroom apartment, it was spacious and comfortable. Finding the hotel was at first difficult as the taxi did not know where it was. Located just next to the coex, it was really convenience to go shopping at the coex mall. Staffs were all friendly and helpful. The price was value for money and a good choice for families.

"Great value ! " Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The location was great. It was very convenient to go to shopping and to take a subway. The staffs were very friendly and professional. I would like to say thank you to staff Lucy. I asked some questions about the transport and the city, she helped us even detail things. We enjoyed our stay at Oakwood. I will certainly be staying here on all future visits back to Seoul !

The property is in a great location next to City Air Terminal with a good range of restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean and of a good size with all of the features that you would expect from a modern business hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful.
