            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Great pool and fitness facility. Free LAN internet in room and WIFI in the lobby. Clean and spacious rooms, modern bathrooms. Helpful and extremely polite staff.

              Difficult to tell taxi drivers how to get there.

            • Single
              8.4

              This is the second time I stay at the Riviera hotel, and my experience has again been very satisfactory. The room was confortable and clean, and the staff extremely helpful. I forgot my laptop adapter after checking out, and when I came back a few hours later they had set it appart inside a sealed envelope.

              Only a bottle of mineral water is included as complimentary beverage in the room, and breakfast is not covered by the standard room rate.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Spacious and clean room, firm bed mattress, safe big enough for my notebook computer, lan cable internet, big tv, etc. Fitness club with swimming pool, golf range and sauna is a bit outdated but has a nice workout atmosphere and plenty of equipment and space. Hotel is in the Gangnam business and quality shopping district. Main tourist and nightlife attractions are quite a bit away, but underground connection is ok and taxis are very cheap. Some 200 metres away is the Ellui hotel club, which some regard as the finest (house and techno music) club in Seoul.

              WiFi in the room in the iPad age would be nice.

            • Single
              10.0

              Small store in lobby, nice bar on the 15th floor for meetings, location close to COEX exhibition center, internet, room service, around many restaurants

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Decent hotel, with good value for money for the frequent business gueast!

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              it is a very good hotel but the room rent is not comfort with medium type people.

              room rent

            • Single
              7.4

              Low prices. Good value hotel.

              Metro station is not nearby. Took taxi everytime to and from due to the lack of nearby public transit.

            • Single
              7.4

              Whenever I wanted to change foreign currency they didn't have enough money to change.

            • Single
              6.2

              Location.

              Should renovate the interior and update the facilities and appliances.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              The location is really good + the staff was really friendly with the kids.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              I like the hotel & reasonably priced. The only negative comment is I like softer mattress. Samir

              Need softer mattress

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Good place to stay for business trip. You have all you need, Internet, luggage servic, Place to meet partners. I do need nothing more.

              One small bottle of water free in room. Greedy :)))) The service of ironing things could take rather long. Better to do it by yourself.

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              Poor location - not within walking distance of anywhere. Cost of food and drinks extremely high and poor quality.

            • Single
              7.4

              Good for business. Room and Fitness Center were the essentials I needed and I was very happy with both.
