Therefore, i booked 4 nights for a nice getaway in Seoul. I am glad i went with this hotel, the staff were fantastic as was the provided service. Room was clean (and... More

I had a good stay in Novotel Ambassador Gangnam Seoul in the executive floors. Service, facilities and included aneminities are all up to very good business hotel standards. Location in Gangnam-Gu is a good spot to do business in Seoul. All in all a very good stay. Nothing to complain. Price level is normal for Seoul.

Dear Travellkm, Thank you for your balanced view… As you can understand it is difficult to enlarge the room however our refurbishment plan does provide more free space in the rooms. Best regards, Mike BROWN General Manager More

I spend 5 nights in the hotel recently. I had a great experience; most likely it helped a lot I stayed in an executive room.

The rooms are big, clean and quiet with all the facilities inside (coffee...). I love the fitness center with a very nice swimming pool and all sport facilities opening from 6am to 10 pm which is very convenient. And my favourite, the breakfast : just huge and delicious, a big buffet with Asian, western salt and sweet food. The staff... More

This is my second time staying at this hotel and both times I've been treated very well. Fortunately I've been on the executive floors which might help with the rating. For the business traveler they have it taken care of.

The rooms were quite small, front lobby obviously looks much nicer than the actual rooms, the most expensive breakfast I've ever had was at this hotel (a l a carte american gets you half the food portions for double the price that you might be used to) and they charge you 1,000 won / about 1 USD per printout page...
