3. Showcasing Top-tier Reviews from Korean Guests

Being situated in South Korea, it’s no surprise that Andaz Seoul Gangnamplays host to a significant number of Korean guests. In my quest for understanding guest experiences, I’ve come across a plethora of reviews penned by Koreans. Allow me to share some of these standout reviews with you.

3.1. Best Review: “Recommended Seoul Hotel: Andaz Seoul Gangnam – One of Only Four in Asia under the Hyatt Brand / Review of Andaz King Bed Deluxe Room (Including Breakfast)”

Summary of the Blog Post

Today, I’d like to introduce you to a hotel perfect for a staycation, ‘Andaz Seoul Gangnam’, a part of the Hyatt brand. This hotel is located right next to the exit 3 of Apgujeong station, providing a convenient location for foreigners visiting nearby plastic surgery clinics.

Andaz, a luxury brand of Hyatt, first opened in London and Korea is the fourth in Asia to open such a brand. The exterior of the hotel exudes a modern, urban vibe, and though the interior is modest, it gives off a sophisticated atmosphere.

The ‘King Bed Deluxe Room’, where we stayed, was surprisingly spacious with ample storage spaces, making it convenient for those planning a long stay. Also, the room featured a large bathtub, and the shower space and toilet were separated, which was very convenient. Most of the drinks and snacks in the minibar were offered for free, which further enhanced the comfort of our stay.

The breakfast had a variety of menus, and each dish was prepared with care. The servers were friendly, and the quality of the food and coffee was excellent.

However, the location of Andaz Seoul Gangnam in Apgujeong may not be suitable as a lodging for sightseeing. And it was a bit disappointing that the soundproofing was not effective, with the noise from the road traffic audible. But apart from that, we were very satisfied and would like to visit this hotel again.

5. Diving into Price Analysis

Finally, let’s delve into arguably one of the most critical categories in hotel reviews – pricing.

To pinpoint where you can get your money’s worth, I’ll be comparing rates from renowned hotel comparison platforms like ‘HotelsCombined,’ ‘SkyScanner,’ and ‘Trivago.’

Our criteria for this low-price hunt? A one-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday for two guests in a single room—breakfast excluded (as it often significantly bumps up costs).

5.1. Price Comparison via ‘HotelsCombined’

Andaz Seoul Gangnam: lowest price on HotelsCombined

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $258 when booking through ‘Agoda’, ‘Booking.com’, ‘Expedia’, ‘Hotels.com’, etc. The majority of websites showed the same lowest price.

5.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

Andaz Seoul Gangnam: lowest price on Sky Scanner

The lowest price on ‘Sky Scanner’ is $283 for a 1-night stay when booking through ‘Hotels.com’, ‘Agoda’, and ‘Vio.com’.

5.3. Price Comparison via ‘Trivago’

Andaz Seoul Gangnam: lowest price on Trivago

Sky Scanner’s lowest price for a one-night stay, when booked through ‘Super.com’, is an enticing $239.

Intrigued by the unfamiliarity of ‘Super.com’ and its notably lower prices compared to other platforms, I decided to explore this link. Indeed, I was able to confirm that a reservation could be made for a mere $239. Personally, I found these results to be quite fascinating.

5.4. Official Website of ‘Andaz Seoul Gangnam

Andaz Seoul Gangnam: lowest price on the official website of the hotel

I also explored prices directly from the Andaz Seoul Gangnam official website. The lowest price on the official hotel website was $260, based on non-member rates.

Our analysis reveals that out of all four sites considered, ‘Trivago’ offers the best deal at USD 239 for a stay at the Andaz Seoul Gangnam when booking through ‘Super.com’. You might want to keep this information handy while booking.

★ Do bear in mind, these rock-bottom prices are subject to change based on your stay dates and when you’re conducting your search.

★ Also crucial to remember – today’s best deal doesn’t necessarily promise future savings.

★ Consider this ‘Lowest Price Analysis’ as a guiding light rather than an absolute rule.

★ For savvy hotel booking, I’d recommend revisiting these comparison sites during your accommodation planning phase – you never know when you might stumble upon an even better deal!”

And with that, we wrap up our review of the Andaz Seoul Gangnam, seen through a distinctly Korean lens.
