massimobF7629RL Business - 26/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

I stay every year more than 100 nights in this hotel. The location, and the staff are great. the hotel rooms are small with a noisy air condition and a strange light system. the hotel is expensive for such a small room. the hotel is very well connected with the public transportation system and he has a nice health club with pool and good but expensive restaurants

Dear massimobF7629RL, Warm greetings from Novotel Ambassador Seoul Gangnam. First of all, we thank you for your loyalty to our hotel and taking a moment to write about your hotel stay experience. We really appreciate your compliments about our hotel and staff. Regarding air-conditioning and lighting system, we will share this with the relevant department for further improvement. Once again, we really appreciate your kind words and look forward to welcoming you soon. Sincerely, Lea You Guest Experience Manager

Well located. Top notch service. Cozy room

This hotel rewards customer loyalty and extended a warm welcome. Overall a great and enjoyable stay. One thing that could be improved would the shower. The hot/cold water pressure doesn’t seem to be very consistent. The water coming from the shower would turn cold for a few seconds then back to normal. Happened a few times during my stay.

Fabian Business - 20/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall the stay was great. Good breakfast, amenities etc. However, two things bothered me. Even I left the towels on the rack, they were changed every day. This is not in line with the stated policy of using less water. Also, please don't remove the shampoo bottles if they are almost full. It really creates a lot of unnecessary waste.

Nice stay at Novotel Ambassador Seoul Gangnam

I would like to specially mention one of your concierge Daniel who assisted me when I was stranded late night without a cab. After going the extra miles to call me a cab, he call my room just to ensure that I have return safely. Top notch service. Well done.

Solid Hotel, Good Location

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Couples - 09/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have stayed at this property for years particularly during the Christmas holiday. We stay because the service is solid and the location is great....easy to subway and to Gangnam area. Was a bit disappointed this year....we usually are able to check in a bit earlier before...this year seems like the hotel was fully booked....this means that breakfast was quite crowded and we had to wait. As well, because it's so hot everywhere in Korea during winter, we keep the air conditioner in the room on. The air con only worked about 50% of the time....if you open the windows you hear the traffic noise below. Overall, hotel was fine.

Nice place to stay.

Generally speaking I feel good. But I still feel uncomfortable with some of service experience. I started to stay in this hotel since Aug 2019 until now. Steadily for over 90 days. Every time when I check in, I experienced differrent troubles. For example , the guy in receiption did not know how to pre-pay buy credit card , or they insist to let me use credit card guarantee even though I would like to pre-pay my bill...ext Feel not good

Amazing!!!

Jeremy B. Business - 30/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great experience at the hotel. Excellent accommodations and kind, helpful staff. The only thing I'd change is to have a few minute grace period for cleaning up breakfast, especially in the Executive Lounge. The staff was very prompt to clean up, which is fine, but it may be better to do that task a few minutes late, to accommodate the last minute guest.

Laundry fee charge

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Business - 30/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The 3pcs laundry was included in my deal, and I knew it was only 3 pcs but they counted it as 4 pcs and charged me 1 pc. And I left one box of my facial masks in the fridge so called the hotel after several days but they said they didn't see it. This also still doubtful...

Good Location, tired hotel. Bedrooms and bathrooms need updating.

Very good location, nice concierge, willing staff but lady who checked us in was rather inexperienced and irritating tho deal with esp. after a long flight. Also hotel needs updating. Like most AccorHotels, maintenance is an issue. Tired and worn at the edges. Bedroom and bathroom need serious updating.

it was lovely to stay there. From front desk they upgraded the room and gave me free drink coupons. Room was cosy and spacious for 2 people. It takes 8 mins from sinnonhyun subway station. Also the decorations at the 1st floor was marvelous which goes well with this season.

David C. Families - 10/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Executive lounge was extremely disappointing. I didn't expect much, but during the daytime, no cold beverage was on offer, only tea and coffee, where the staff did not refill necessary items on a timely manner. (i.e. paper cups, sweets) Though the quality of food during happy hour was outstanding. We were given our room after the Standard check in time, 60min late. Staff were not too proactive about this issue since they claimed because it was the weekend. I asked the concierge staff to send my luggage to my room, staff's intentions were good, but ended up entering the room without knocking or ringing the bell. Room conditions were pretty good. Well kept despite the age of the hotel. Friendly housekeeping staff
