Glam and Sass...
One of the nicest hotels in Seoul.

Convenient Location but dated facility
Carpet in front of the bathroom was wet. When I asked to clean, the service person came in and checked and may need to change my room. He left saying he will be back but never came back...

Suffered a centipede under my bed.
Service was excellent - staffs were very welcoming and professional. However, I have to say that I was disappointed with the condition of my room. On my day 1, after getting out of my shower, I saw a centipede crawling out of under my bed. It nonchalantly walked toward a gap underneath a wall and slid into it. I was dumbfounded and called the front desk and asked to be moved to an another room. They moved me to an another room with the same layout and same size. Due to the similarity between my old room and new room, I had to wonder if I would see another centipede in my new room. Fortunately I didn't. It was great that they moved me immediately, but I did not get compensated for it any way. I wonder if this was a common enough problem for them to not take it seriously. I took some photos of the said bug in my room but not sure if I want to post it here. If Imperial Palace moderator is reading this, I stayed in your hotel from Sep 27th to Sep 30th under my name ( Seulgi Kim ). Although the staff service and nearby neighborhood was great, I am not sure if I want to go back due to the condition of the hotel.

Nice staying in Gangnam, Seoul
Great hotel. I stayed 10 days at this time and it is one of my favorate hotel in Seoul although dinning is very expensive though. Hotel guest discount is very minimal. Location is great. Coffee at lobby area cafe price is somewhat high.. almost $18 per person. My room card bwcame disabled twice. Room cleaning missed towels and other stuff a few times. Phone in the room did not work for the fiest week.
