Prior to my business trip, I searched a bit for the right hotel for my 1 week stint in Seoul. In the past, I have been quite happy with the Accor group's ibis and Novotel franchises. So for this trip, I decided to try the Mercure brand. The Mercure Ambassador Gangnam was a good find : (1) convenient bus stop...

Business is business isn't it? And this is a business hotel that does what it needs to do. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean and breakfast is good. It's not a romantic hotel, but it suits you well when you're miles from home and you need wifi that works, and amenities that suit your 8am - 10pm lifestyle. The one...

Good Hotel in Gagnam. Rooms are compact but ok. It was however difficult to get right temperature in room, quite cold at the window. Breakfast was OK. However, closest area seems to be sloppy, we choose to not take a walk

Spent here 3 nights on a business trip. Very fast and efficient check-in, cool reception hall ambience, maybe the music is just a bit to loud?

This Mercure is a good location while staying in Seoul. In the heart of Gangnam it gives a simple access to the busy city. Comfortable with an excellent service it is a recommended location. Breakfast will satisfy all Asian or Western appetites. Lunch break at the hotel is not my favorite (limited choice) bit surrounding numerous restaurant shall cover that.

This is a good value hotel in the expensive Gangnam area, so was not expecting too much. The service was wonderful, the room was small but comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic , one of the best hotel breakfasts ever, would definitely stay again.

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.
