I have been to Novotel Gangnam for work (my company holds their conferences here) twice this year, and both times, the service, food, rooms and overall experience exceeded my expectations! The staff were extremely helpful and constantly at our service, willing to go beyond what is required of them. The event moved seamlessly from one day to the next, with... More

Very comfortable, incredible spa/gym/lap pool including free weights and machines. Everyone jumps to help you and meet your needs with a hop in their step and a smile on their face. We had a wonderful week stay!

I was pleased to return to this very high quality hotel. Excellent service and I got upgraded to the 17th floor which was really nice. I had several business meetings in the lobby bar which was a really good place for such things. A very good breakfast and other meals were also of high quality. Overall an excellent stay.

Despite the average nature of the room in general, I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The lobby is beautiful, the service is efficient and friendly, the bar is a fun place, and the location is terrific. It's easy to walk to a lot of very fun things from the hotel. The neighborhood is the attraction. I suspect none... More

First time staying in the Seoul Ambassador it is ran with the usual Korean efficiency. Check in was easy and straight forward. The room small but clean and functional. Did not like the bed as it was to hard and the pillow too soft. Food quality was good. Paul's Hotel Rating 1 - 5 1. Disaster will never stay again.... More

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighborhood Profile
Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam
If you thought business and fun couldn’t mix, look no further than urban Gangnam and the nearby neighborhoods. On the surface, Gangnam comes off as a strictly business district with a plethora of high-rise office buildings jutting into the sky and the steady streams of office workers bustling about. But interlaced within are a string of shops, restaurants, bars, and other spots for entertainment. If Myeongdong is the generic meet-up and hangout spot north of the Han River, Gangnam is its answer for those on the south side. As evening comes, Gangnam comes alive with its countless neon lights attracting hordes of office workers, friends, and couples for food, drinks, perhaps a bit of singing at a noraebang, and more drinks. And the smattering of clubs around also draws plenty of folks looking to unwind and show off their moves on the dance floor. On weekends, the crowds gets bigger, the energy buzzes to a seemingly nonstop high, and Gangnam makes it clear why so many call Seoul the city that never sleeps.
