We stayed twice on adoption trips in the past two months. The staff and service were both wonderful, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We enjoyed the free internet use, which we would have had to pay for in other hotels in the area, and everyone did a wonderful job taking care of any other needs we had.

I stayed at Novotel Ambassador Gangnam Seoul in February 2014 when on a business trip to Korea. Good location. Hotel rooms are very well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Service was excellent.

We enjoyed our stay mainly because of the perfect location, easy access to restaurants, shops and subway. The spa has very good sauna, steamroom. the pool is small and very high air temperature. The concierges are very helpful and knowledgeable.

Nice hotel but was not best pleased when checking in to find Exec Floor closed as well as Exec Lounge. Had to change rooms as my smoking preference not logged even though I have a Accord Platinum Card. Not good to have to change rooms when checking in late. Other than that no complaints. Atmosphere a bit soul less--no pun...

I arrived at the hotel from the airport on the bus at around 7:30 am. Having taken an overnight 6 hour flight I was really tired. The staff were very polite and extremely helpful. Although I had no right to expect it until much later in the day, they found me a room to check in to. The rooms are...

Clean, friendly and on the spot hotel. Nothing to worry. I can recommand to stay there. A welcome drink is included. I did not use any facilities, so I can not judge teh quality of e.g. the parking garage or other amusement areas. Gangnam street is a 5 minutes walk, many bars and clubs nearby

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.
