A new party hotel for Gangnam

Calling itself a 'curated lifestyle' hotel, GLAD LIVE GANGNAM is a welcome new addition to Seoul, where over the past few years there's been a flourishing of good new hotels combining sharp interior design and cost-consciousness.

GLAD LIVE's location is good too, in the heart of trendy Gangnam and right above Exit D of the National Assembly subway station on Line 9, making it a convenient base for exploring the Korean capital.

Rooms are big for a budget hotel with entry level options starting at 24.5 sqm - good value for money especially when those rooms go for less than $100 on some dates.

There are three bars and a restaurant within the hotel. Younger travelers looking for a party will appreciate this but if you're sensitive to sound (and like a good night's sleep) you might want to look elsewhere as the beats reverberate through the building late into the night on weekends.
