    clean, spacious and quite convenient

    riviera is about 100 metres away from a subway station of line 7. the room is spacious and reasonably equipped, but with no toothbrush, shaver etc. (most of the hotels in seoul are the same). the double bed is quite large, much larger than those hotels in tokyo of similar price. staff are friendly and can communicate with simple english. haven't tried the restaurants of the hotel but there are many restaurant at the vicinity, with a 7-eleven opposite the hotel. taking into consideration the price, i.e. for five nights, riviera is a good choice, value for money.

    I reach early at hotel around 9am, so I requested early check in. I heard from hotel that early check in would be required extra pay equivalent of half day stay. But they help me to check in after one hour without extra pay as soon as room is prepared. I had kimchi soup for breakfast while I was waiting just near hotel. There is really famous casual restaurant for kimchi soup in gangnam. It takes only 2-3 min by foot from hotel. Hotel room condition was very clean. I liked bathroom with large bathtub Location is very good. You can access easily to nice place in gangnam such as garosugil, gangnam station, coex besides very very near to chungdam subway stataion and club

    I ever lived several hotels in Seoul, but only Riviera hotel impress me very much. I think Riviera hotel has a good reputation in Seoul, no matter in Incheon airport or in other districts, it's easy for bus/taxi drivers to bring me to hotel. they're very familiar with Reviera,which is very convenient for me, you know, I can't speak korean. Besides, Riviera has various sports equipments, e.g. jogging,swimming and even golf. more surprisely, they're all free. I enjoy my stay in Riviera hotel.

    Second attempt to resolve atwo charge issues”

    I asked you a few days ago to look into two charges that have appeared on my Visa bill from the Riviera Hotel in Seoul. The first charge posted is dated May 15th, 2019 the day I arrived at the hotel, and the second charge is dated May 18th, 2019 the day I departed the hotel. You told me these charges were resolved, well they have not!! These charges have gone beyond pending by my Visa company and are now on my account as charges to be paid. I mentioned to you in my first message a few days ago that I charged nothing to my room, nor did I use anything from the refrigerator or snack/ razor/toothbrush area. I mentioned to you that housekeeping never placed any snacks in my room so there was nothing to use. I am disputing these charges, and want them removed from my Visa charge account. Please respond. Thanking you in advance, Frances Lamb

    We had a very good experience at the Hotel Riviera”

    The pool, the friendly staff, and quiet environment made this hotel a great place to get away for a while.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Riviera. The staff was very friendly and almost every staff member spoke at least some English. Originally we were only going to stay one night, but we decided to book an extra night because of how comfortable the hotel was. One big selling point for us was that the hotel had a pool, which is relatively rare in Korea. Overall, we had a very enjoyable time at this hotel.

    nothing special, nothing to complain about. ”

    extremely fast internet, good location, efficient staff

    this was my second time at Riviera Hotel. Their rates are usually really competitive and their rooms are fine for basic needs. There is something "old" feeling about the rooms (the decor, the furniture, the carpet) that doesn't feel as clean as one might like. It's a very standard conventional hotel that I would say rating at 5 stars is a LONG stretch. There's nothing to explicitly complain about but def not a 5 star hotel. That said, they dont' charge you 5 Star rates, so again, no complaints. I do feel like they need to update their interior though. The place is showing it's age (whatever that may be). Location is great, service is friendly and efficient, and rooms are a decent size. Internet is BLAZING fast here even relative to how fast internet is in seoul in general. So if that’s a priority, this hotel should be on your shortlist. The rooms are a good comfortable size (even spacious by asian hotel standards) but I personally prefer a smaller yet tidier (newer, cleaner) hotel experience.

    I was really impressed with all the friendly receptionists, the delicious breakfasts, the clean and comfortable room and loved the colour changing shower lights!! I will be recommending this hotel to anyone that is visiting Seoul and wants a reasonably priced and friendly place to stay.

    Lovely hotel with great location”

    good service

    As a foreigner and first visitor to korea, riviera is quite good. it is clean and its price is reasonable. its location is great cause we can take a "tour" by walking just for looking around the hotel. I stayed there only for 3 nights but it was great to stay there cause I could take a little walk to enjoyed snow (Sure..I could not find any snow in Indonesia......). if I have a chance to came to seoul (again) I won't mind to stay at this hotel

    I have been staying at the Riviera for a number of years. It is convenient to where I work and I can count on creature comforts necessary when I need quiet for work and rest. Love having breakfast downstairs and the hotel staff is attentive and efficient.

    Nice hotel, location not so great”

    Very nice hotel, with clean big rooms and nice facilities. Staff courteous and professional (but English wasn't great). View was of the street, was nice. There was a dance club next door (but you wouldn't hear it, sound insulation was excellent). Looks very high end, but I didn't pay a high price (booked through Agoda). Airport bus literally took me to the very front of the hotel! Now, the bad part... There really isn't much within walking distance. Yes, there's a restaurant in the lobby. But it was kind of expensive (dinner for 2 would have been more than my room!) and it was empty. (We all know what they say about empty restaurants and skinny chefs.) I walked around the area and found some cafes, couple restaurants. None were memorable. The good part is that the hotel is located on a big boulevard, with easy access to bus stops and taxis. COEX/World Trade Center is only about 3 bust stops away, so it's not exactly isolated. But if I were to stay in Gangnam again, I'd look elsewhere.

    Good location in Gangnam, Seoul”

    Even if the nearest subway station is around 10 minutes walk from the hotel, it is actually loacated in the center of the Gangnam in Seoul. Bus stop is right in front of the hotel and it's easy to catch taxi. My wife and I enjoyed the stay for the purpose of participating the year-end parties occurred during the weekend. In-door pool was also a great plus.

    Classy Hotel”

    Hotel itself is a typical old classy hotel . I like this type of hotels such as Chosun and Sejong. Compare to other classy hotels in Seoul, this hotel has smaller rooms and beds. Staffs were just okay not as welcoming or accommodating like other classy hotels. As far as the location is concerned, this can either be inconvenient or daring due to awkward access to public transportation. Hotel bell hops won't even try to help you get a cab. They just tell you to go out on street and find one. This hotel is geared towards those who are brave enough to drive in Seoul. If you are not driving, look elsewhere.

    Comfortable rooms, good value, friendly staff

    highly recommended. the staff are extremely helpful and willing to help out with everything, especially translations and directions cards, invaluable for non-korean speakers. my room on level 12 was very comfortable, great heating systems, lovelybed and bathroom. i would recommend for business or tourism. only slight downsides are it is quite far to get to the seoul station and downtown areas, especially by the mrt but very manageable. i would have preferred wi-fi access in the rooms, not just the lobby area. overall, a pleasant and value for money stay.
