Value for money hotel
Value for money with decent-sized room and great room amenities (close to a 5 star hotel). 2 minor negatives that mar the otherwise positive experience: a. Both bedside lamps were not working in the room b. Concierge and staff didn't seem too friendly and make guests feel warm e.g. nobody helped with my luggage when I was making my way into the hotel lobby.

Bed, cleanliness, bathroom strong water pressure
The hotel is located in the middle of myeongdong and dongdaemun but both are more than 1km away so it's neither here or there. Good thing is hotel provides hourly shuttle service to these two locations.

Short stay
Good Location. Close to most shopping areas.
This being our 4th trip to Korea - 3rd stay in Ambassador but room disappointing as claimed by reception as 35sq M but our last stay in bigger room which we note as 30 sq M.

Not so good or bad
Comfortable, Nice and Old
Not very convenient but has a shuttle bus service which was very helpful. Staff is very nice and gentle, but the designs in the hotel were very old and not up to date, the furniture made me felt really disintereseted. But the pillows and mattresses were very comfortable and cozy.
