Like the location of the hotel. 10 minutes walk to the famous Gangnam area. Breakfast they serve was great with wide selection. The only down side experienced at the hotel was the room. Bathroom need a facelift as the condition is quite old.

I was in Seoul for several days for a conference at this hotel so elected to stay there. I have used Novotel before and found them a little soulless - clean but clinical. This one was much better than I expected. The room wasn't large but was well appointed and very modern, with a beautifully set up bathroom. There are...

It is one of those hotels where they take care of every details in a pleasant way. Comfortable clean bedroom, quiet with no noise whatsoever, notwithstanding it was full. User friendly shower, well served breakfast buffet, careful but not invasive waiters, I have only found one single aspect that could be improved: the power socket on the desk where I...

I have just returned from my second visit to the Novotel Ambassador Hotel in Gangnam. This property never disappoints. The staff, rooms, and facilities are excellent. I had spent 4 days in China earlier that week and even though the hotels I stayed in were satisfactory, the Ambassador was a fantastic place to arrive as the last stop on a...

We stayed for 5 nights in this hotel with the family (including a restless toddler). Instantly felt the warmth upon check-in. No queue and everybody was smiling. Even if my booking was fone in 3 separate deals, they still managed to consolidate everything in abreeze and even gave us an "upgrade" to the next room category. Going around Gangnam was...

We moved here from another hotel and were delighted that we did. We are members of the accor group and stay with them as often as we can. This hotel was well up to standard and the staff could not have been more helpful. One of the best novotels that we have stayed in and we would recomend to anyone

I spent a Saturday night here and it surpassed my expectations. The room was relatively small, but very modern. The shower was big with multiple shower heads, the bathroom had a built in bidet, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast package is overpriced but there is a large selection of both American and Korean items, all of which were...

We recently stayed here for 12 nights during a business trip to Seoul. The hotel is modern and very business friendly. Many staff members speak English very well. The location is in Gangnam and is in walking distance to many shops, restaurants and stores. The hotel has 4 places to eat, including a buffet that is open for breakfast, lunch...

Great ambience and professional operation, room was euro-modern design and everything worked faultlessly. Breakfast buffet is a fantastic smorgasbord, esp. the grilled salmon. Location is great also, a short walk to the Sinnheyon Station on the #9 line, which connects to everywhere.

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.
