Good but not the 5 Star

Hourly Suttle Bus, Good value for money, Nespresso in the room, Close to Subway station
8.3
Stayed Grand Ambassador Hotel Seoul for 3 nights. Good value for money for 5 star hotel close to Downtown Seoul. I felt very uncomfortable at the check-in desk due to massive Chinese group making unbareable noise in the lobby. Stayed in their basic room (superior room), therefore room was quite basic but comfortable enough with all the amenities, including iron & iron board,personal safe, free bottles of water daily, bathrobe & sleeper. I love the Nespresso machine in the room. 6 pods were provided, 2 free daily and extra pods charged 2000 won (U$2) each. Free Wi-Fi avaiable in the Lobby and cost 15,000+ in the room. I think it's free in Deluxe rooms. Hourly suttle bus to downtown shopping area is very handy. Easy 5 minutes walk to the Subway station (Orange Line) Airport limousine bus stops right in front of the hotel. Good Gym with heaps of cardio machine and some weight equipments, but swimming pool(indoor) is very basic and not inviting (ok for doing few laps but definitely not resort style) Overall I was satisfied and nothing to complain about. I would stay Grand Ambassador Seoul again if I could get similar price

Good Location

Really helpful staff.
8.3
it was nice hotel to stay in. good breakfast (included in fee). the only thing have to say against it was the air conditioning... the room would not cool below 25 degrees. i thought the air conditioner was broken and ended up changing rooms... same thing. other than that - no problems.

the location is good. only 3 minutes to undergound subway. and there are shullte bus to three different tourist spot, including mindone, dondamen and itawon. i prefer min-done shopping area . and shuttle bus help to save a lot of time. the room itself is quite good, and it offers two cups of coffee for free from the coffee machine. the hotel staff all speak english. it is qutie easy and feel quite relaxed in this hotel. the swim pool is quite ok.defenitly, if i have chance to go to seoul, i will choose this hotel again.

Great location plus free shuttle bus services

Free nespresso capsule; 3 mins walk to subway; free shuttle to myeongdong
8.3
a overnight stay before heading to incheon airport in the early morning up to 5-star in most aspects - nice bedding and pillow; spacious room for single traveller; free shuttle to major tourist spots including myeougdong. cons: did not feel welcomed by the reception at checkin; sauna is not free; decor in the bathroom is kinda outdated; hotel keeps sending me emails to give feedback (almost feel like it's compulsory) afterall, i think the hotel offers good value in seoul.

Agoda price book cheaply for star hotel

overall is good. location is good, closed to subways and other places. the worst thing was the toilet is very dirty. It should have been cleaned without hair on the floor and no dirt on the toilet. please do something on it.

Awesome place to stay

room is pretty big and clean, its also very close to metro station and most important free shuttle bus
7.3
I stayed in grand ambassador Seoul <3 for 6 days with my friend for high school graduation trip, and we enjoyed it very much. The staffs are very helpful and polite. The room is pretty big and clean. The metro station is around 5mins walk from the hotel and its pretty close to the tourist spots too, especially myeondong and dongdemong. The hotel has free shuttle bus service which goes to most of the tourists attrations, eg insadong, etc and they go very frequent (once per hour).

Neat and Tidy Hotel.

Comfortable Beds
7.3
It is a basic hotel with no frills and thrills hotel Improved resturant with a good spread for Breakfast and Dinner. However, the resturant is inflexible with breakfast timing and breakfast closures is too early a 10.00am (shoudl be at least till 10.30am. Service desk is great to communicate with. TV programs offerings is very limited for visitors and TV is bad receptions.

Good Hotel, need to get a cab or take a walk thoug

Good Hotel, City and Tower views
7.3
Ambassador is a perfectly adequate hotel, reasonable for the money (although US$10 for a beer in the lobby is robbery), Rooms are clean, comfortable and reasonably equipped (but no free internet). It's set near the University, 10 mins walk to Silla Duty Free, 10 mins taxi to the shopping at Dongdaemun and 5 mins to Myeongdong. Taxis are very cheap so not an issue. The local area is worth a wander round for a bit of 'real' Seoul. Best bars and food to be had at the bottom or in the back streets when in Myeongdong. 70's Radio bar is good, friendly staff and good beer. Would stay again.
Hotel Feature Tip: If you take the Limo bus - Ambassador is the end of the line so on the way out, you spend 55 mins stop/start before the real journey starts - get a taxi to the last pickup hotel (Ramada?) and save 40 mins
