We stayed at the hotel from Jan 24-28. It was during that time, that a terrible accident happened...there was a “FIRE”!!! It happened around 5 am when everybody’s asleep...whatever positive experience we had prior to the event...it was overshadowed by the stress caused by the tragedy. I would like to highlight the seriousness of the SAFETY ISSUES LACKING FROM A FIVE STAR HOTEL!!! To name a few: 1. THERE WAS NO FIRE ALARM 2. A single phone call was made to our room. 3. No fire sprinkler. 4. Total Lack of communication/updates from the staff with guests who made it to safe place. And rescue staff are all talking in their native language ONLY. Foreigners were definitely left clueless and alienated... 5. The staff were all standing and watching like a bystanders when the event was happening. 6. No safety protocol on hand DURING and AFTER a EMERGENCY SITUATION like this. I could go on forever...The amount of physical and emotional stress we had..was unimaginable! The experience was really a total letdown!

급작스런 화재 사고로 경황 없었을 것을 가만합니다. 홈페이지와 전화 불통, 예약 확인 불통 등 여러 점이 미숙했지만, 애써준 직원들 덕에 마음을 풀고 대체 숙소로 이동했습니다. 그러니까 아래 평가는 그랜드 앰버서더 서울이 아닌, 강남 노보텔에 대한 평가입니다. 강남 노보텔은 전반적으로 준비되지 못한 모습을 보여주었고 식사나 객실 청결 등에서 실망스러웠습니다. This result is for the replacement which is Gangnam Novotel, caused the fire accidents in Grand Ambassador Seoul.

jeongk305 고객님께, 안녕하십니까, 그랜드 앰배서더 서울 풀만 호텔입니다. 먼저 갑작스런 화재사고로 고객님께 큰 불편을 끼쳐드려 대단히 죄송합니다. 어떤 말씀으로 위로를 드리고 또 양해를 구해야 하는지 엄두조차 나지 않는 상황입니다. 물론 고객님은 더 불안하셨고 당황하셨으리라 생각됩니다. 부디 직, 간접적으로 피해를 입지 않으셨기를 간절히 바랍니다. 이와 관련해서 저희 호텔은 최대한 빠른 시일내에 원인을 규명하고 다시는 같은 일이 재발하지 않도록 철저한 관리를 약속드립니다. 현재도 호텔 화재 감식이 진행되고 있어서 보다 명확한 답변을 드리기는 어려운 상황입니다. 부디 너그러운 마음으로 양해를 구하여 새로운 모습으로 고객님께 다시 인사드릴 수 있기를 바랍니다 송구한 마음으로 재차 사과의 말씀을 드립니다. 감사합니다.

EXCEPTIONAL ! Great location (near Dongguk Univ. Subway station) although there's a hilly road between, it's quite troublesome if you're bringing many luggages with you. But other than that, great spacious and very clean room with fast free wifi. Also, free shuttle bus hourly to Myeongdong, Insadong, and Dongdaemun is a dealbreaker for us. Greatjob !

Dear kkoesoemo, Warm greeting from Grand Ambassador Seoul associated with Pullman. Thank you for staying with us and taking your time for review. The positive comments you leave are a big motivation to our staff and have a positive impact on the numbers of guests who will visit in Seoul. Using subway to our hotel, it is recommended to exit #1 instead of #6. So you can reach the hotel on a smooth uphill road. We are also planning more various shuttle service especially on weekends. You can also use a new shuttle service on your next visit. Once again thank you for your comments and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Sincerely,

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Ambassador for 15 days and absolutely loved it. The room was very spacious, super clean and refurbished with all we needed. A plus was the minifridge, the Nespresso machine and the complimentary bottles of water (replaced every day). We did not buy the breakfast in advance but ended up eating at the hotel’s magnificent breakfast buffé almost every morning as it offered a wide range of delicious dishes (Western, Chinese, Japanese and Korean) with plenty of choices, even for our daughter who is vegan. My husband visited the gym a couple of times and was fully satisfied. Another service that we really appreciated was the complimentary shuttle service (running every hour) offered by the hotel to all guests to go to Seoul’s city centre. The best thing was however the staff, always extremely kind, helpful and professional. They all spoke English. We would in particular like to thank June Ahn who helped us navigate Seoul (a huge city) with his precious advice and his friendly manners. He truly made us feel at home. We will certainly stay at this hotel again when returning to Seoul!
