              Very comvinient location. You can reach to subway station in 5 minutes walk and also big book store, tons of restaurants, cafes around Gangnam area. It's not that luxurious but you can feel very comfotable. I also very satisfied with breakfast, which is mix of Korean and western food.

              First trip to Seoul and the stay at Novotel Ambassador Seoul Gangnam was extremely pleased. Centrally located and a wide variety of F&B in the vicinity. Not forgetting the breakfast spread was outstanding. Wouldn't consider other hotels in the near future.

              I have stayed here many times and find it a convenient location with direct links with the airport limousine (coach) service. It is a trusted place to stay, I wouldn't say luxurious but the staff are attentive, food reasonable and a popular option for many business travellers and several airlines.

              Staff's are polite, good location, clean

              I really enjoyed staying at Novotel Seoul Ambassador Gangdam. Good location, it was very near to Kangnam station. Many places to eat and drink around the area but since the hotel's entrance was up on the hill (not too high though)a bit of excercing when going back to the hotel. The staff's were polite and the room was clean. The breakfast buffet was nice. Willing to visit again.

              Clean, comfortable and near restaurants

              The hotel is clean. The staff are nice and helpful. The room is very comfortable and the room size is not small comparing to other Gangnam area hotel. There are direct airport shuttle bus from Airport to hotel. Not too difficult to get to the hotel. Many restaurants and cafes are located at the back of the hotel. And two convenience shops are opposite to the hotel. Generally speaking, it is a good hotel. But it was a bit noisy due to the construction work at the higher floor.

              Very good and attentive staff, good location. Price for food/drinks in the hotel was quite high compared to all other places nearby but location was great with great shopping and restaurants nearby. Have to walk up a hill every time coming back but not so bad. Staff were all courteous and willing to help with anything.

              Location, great staff and some great restaurants nearby.

              Stayed recently for three nights. On arrival receptionist was friendly and spoke good English, got a room on the exact floor that I requested (much appreciated!). Room clean and comfortable, bathroom slightly small but was functional. Ideal location for visiting the various 'Gangnam sites', 'Sinnonhyeon' underground station is moments from the hotel, so easy to get the tube. I can't stress enough that the staff were all really helpful and pleasant. We have stayed in several Novotel hotels over the years and this rates as one of the best.

              Great location, international standard hotel. Not the most luxurious but comfortable with range of food outlets and a near entertainment bar with live music for the evenings - Jazz style. Sits between the Best Western and Ritz Carlton in more ways than one - solid reliable.

              Very accessible hotel due to Airport limousine being able to stop right outside the hotel. Near to Sinninhyeon station, and within walking distance to Gangnam shopping street. Only regrettable item was that there was no free wi-fi in the rooms

              Great location for business and pleasure. ”

              Good amenities, English Speaking staff, close to shops restaurants, great service.

              Highly recommend the Novotel Seoul Ambassador Gangnam. I was there for business meetings and stayed two nights. The staff are all really friendly and pretty much everyone speaks intermediate English. There is a cool lounge on the lobby floor which is perfect for business meetings. There is also a few restaurants although I went out for dinner. The location is superb with close proximity to a main shopping street in Gangnam. One IMPORTANT thing to keep in mind. If you are staying there on the weekend (Fri/Sat) be sure to request a room that is street facing. There is a club on the back side (EDEN) which is very noisy on the weekends, with clubbers coming in and out, cars, etc. I had a backside room Fri night and the staff were very cool and changed my room even though it was 11 pm at night. Overall highly recommended and I will stay again.

              Hotel with romantic surrounding and Gangnam Style!”

              Near to hundreds of restaurants and shopping places!

              I stayed at this hotel for 3 days, 2 nights solo. The room is very comfortable and spacious. It is clean and quiet. I love this hotel. The staff are very helpful especially the gentleman Scott Lee at the reception counter. Once out of the hotel, you will walk down a downslope with nice row of trees. Very romantic place. In about 100m, you will reach the endless shopping places of Gangnam. This is a happening place! There are hundreds of restaurants, mini-marts, cafes at both sides of the road and the alleys. It is unbelievable the number of shops, restaurants and cafes at the alleys. You would not be able to finish walking past all the shops..... The hotel is also near to the subway Gangnam and it is very convenient. I woke up each morning yearning to take a walk in the cool air. Have breakfast at any of the many cafes. Very very good for relaxation.
