Stayed there for a few nights on a business trip. Good location close to the hustle and bustle of Gangnam, but still fairly quiet. Nice spacious room, comfortable mattress and quiet (stayed on the 14th floor). Great breakfast buffet ! Would pick this hotel again.

Thanks to a promotion, we booked Novotel Ambassador Gangnam for a good price (given the Christmas/New Year holidays). Tucked in the Southern part of the Han river in Gangnam, the hotel is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle which is usually felt in the Northern part (and where many of the must-see attractions and shopping malls are located)....

During my stay in this hotel (> 5 weeks) I experienced friendly and helpfull staff. The furnishing in the rooms is a little outdated, but the bed is comfortable. I like a cold, quiet and dark bedroom. With the quiet airconditioning, good insulation (hardly any outside noise) and dark curtains this was not a problem. This hotel offers good amenities... More

I stayed in Room 1714 on the Executive Floors. The hotel room was nothing special with very average facilities. I was very disappointed with the TV because of its very poor picture quality - probably because of bad connections and bad TV set - one expects these things to be of the absolute best quality in Korea. On the 16th... More

I stayed here for about 11 days in total. Didnt have any problems with communication with frontdesk or concierge. Overall I am quite happy with the hotel. The rooms are nice, spacey with a king size bed. But I do not understand why the King size bed is actually 2 single mattress with a really uncomfortable and obvious centre divide.... 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.
