I have stayed in Four Points Hotel by Gangnam for 5 months+, from May to October 2020.
This is the hotel take extra mile. Warm people. Great service. Best location. Superb View.
I am so fortunate to be there.
First, extra mile. Before out of quarantine, they were the only hotel out of more than ten hotels that I contacted, to take all the trouble to contact authorities, to get all necessary certificate and document, to fulfill pandemic government requirement for hotels. No one else did these, just refused me. And the person helping me, was Ethan.
Second, Warm people and Great Service. Ms Jennifer Lee, the General Manager, was so kind to meet me for insightful chat over coffee just before I left Seoul. I know each of front desk people. Jimmy Hwang, the manager, and his team would greet me every time see me, by my name “Mr Chow”. Jimmy helped me a number of things out of his capacity. Bruno helped me moving my lot-of-things when room change. Other staffs help me a lot too — Sophie, Josephine, Grace, Leah, Claire, Jinny, to name a few. What’s more, I was always surprised to find snacks, cake, or cheese platter complimentary from hotel when I got back room, even more surprising was the Chusoek paper fan, and Chuseok traditional snack that Jimmy personally brought over to me in the room, and Jimmy in traditional costume!
Third, Best Location. You can’t imagine how convenient it is. Walking distance to Garosu-gil, prime shopping and dining area for youngster and tasteful people; also nearby is Dosan park and Apgujeong area, where all the local and international luxury names are there, plus having highest density of Michelin starred restaurants. No trouble at all to get taxi in front of hotel, or subway / bus all are nearby. Last but not least, there is a nice park on a small hill opposite to hotel, where I had jogging every weekend!
Forth, Superb View. Four Points Gangnam is the tallest building in the neighborhood. Every room are with more than 180 degree panoramic view of several kilometers. Seoul tower, mountains, Breath-taking sunset!
I am sure I will be back Seoul, I am sure I will return Four Points Gangnam. It’s my home in Seoul!
I miss you, Four Points Gangnam!
