Staff are friendly and services are excellent, facilities are great especially the swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Room is spacious and bed is comfortable. Decent study table if you need to get some work done. Close to eateries and shops. The only thing is the room interior is a little bit old. Time for renovation maybe? Will definitely come back...

The Novotel Ambassador certainly makes a five star impression when you walk in, the lobby and restaurants on the first floor are very impressive. I would not recommend eating there if you are at all budget conscious since the restaurant prices are sky high. However the rooms are really below par at the price they command...the Best Western across the...

Novotel is a great hotel for shopcoholics since it's just a walking distance (3 small blocks away) from Gangnam shopping district where one can find boutique stores selling high end and trendy products/clothes. Cheaper products are in basement stores with entrances at gate 9 and 12. The hotel rooms are as expected beautiful with an automatic ( soft and unobtrusive)...

I stayed here for Roughly 6 months this is a very good business hotel. It has good facilities. Some downfalls were that the gym was very busy, the staff were not the most helpful at times compared with other hotels. The location is very good located to everything you need downtown.

Good location if you want to visit the whole Gangnam area. Near restaurant and shopping streets. Good bell & concierge service. We travelled with our two young daughters and the staff was always very helpful and nice with the kids.

Staying in Gangnam / Nonhyeon / Yeoksam

Neighbourhood 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.
