Novotel Ambassador Seoul Gangnam
Ranked #26 of 506 Hotels in Seoul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I stayed here for 6 nights. The location is very good, 5 mins walk to central Gangnam's shops. The gymnasium is decent, Technogym machines, dumbells to 22kg, olympic bar and bench. Staff are all extremely polite and professional and English speaking. Food is excellent in the hotel, the breakfast is top notch, and the restaurants in hotel also very good quality (but bar and restaurants are expensive). Rooms good size (note shower leaks onto floor). KAL airport shuttle bus stops outside the hotel front door.

Downsides - there is a nightclub outside (Eden), I was on the 11th floor and noise from revellers till 430am on few nights is very audible - take some earplugs. Aircon isnt turned on over winter - so the room was stuffy at night but staff provided a fan. Wifi is not free and expensive but there are a couple of Macs in the lobby.

All in all a very good hotel, I'd stay here again - just remember the ear plugs!

This hotel is a very good business hotel with good sized rooms and a friendly service. Breakfast is in European style with a large choice. There is no need to stay in the more expensive Ritz hotel next door. The hotel is on the route of the inexpensive and luxury KAL shuttle from and to the Incheon International airport.

I stayed in this hotel for a week just before Christmas 2012. Everything about the stay was great. Room was spacious and clean, service was excellent and the location was great. It is basically less than a five minute walk to the center.

The Novetel is right next to the Ritz Carlton. I really like the gym. It's huge, I think it's also a local gym for Korean businesmen. The Novetel is in a nice location, near Paris Baguette, Hooters, etc...

The stay at Novotel was great. Though we do not speak the language, the service at the information counter was good. He attended to all of our queries on directions to places of interest and guided us in the use of the train.

Dear Teresalen,

Seoul is both an exciting city and easy to get around. Making use of concierge was a good idea as they are both informative and multi language speakers. Hope to see you back.
