Great hotel

So the hotel itself Is nice, the amenities are great, the only issue I have is that some of them are not included in the hotel stay price. If you are in town for business, this hotel is great, if you are just trying to get away for the weekend, it's just what you need. The restaurants near by are great, the smokey saloon, probably has the best burgers in Korea and quite possibly in the region. Fit kitchen (bear by as well) also has a great selection and prices at both are reasonable. As far as the amenities, they were great however not included in the price, you have to pay separately for the sauna and bath house, which the price is acceptable. It is around 5k won ($5 U.S. Dollars). The breakfast states complimentary, however all it is, is coffee and a pastry. The breakfast offered at the hotel is awesome however it is around $30 U.S. Dollars. The nearest train station is about a half mile away which is well withing walking distance, however my wife wasn't having it. So taxi is pretty much the only way to get around if you are in a rush. The room was great, the toiletries are not included either, you will get charged. Ultimately for the price of the stay ($99) Italia expected. Bottom line: with all the amenities, your stay averages to about $130 USD a night. Would I reccomend? Eh, yeah I guess I will. Oh security is awesome, you need your room key to use the elevator.

A conveniently located business hotel

Close to Samsung Subway Station and Coex, which means there're a wide variety of eateries, shopping and entertainment hotspots nearby. I was given a room which was smelly, so requested change of room. The staff accommodated my request and gave me a cleaner room. Rooms, though small and outdated, are good value for business travelers who need to stay in Gangnam.

Convinient and Good Value

The Ibis Seoul Ambassador is a hotel that I'll stay at again when I'm doing business in Seoul. It is centrally located in Gangnam Gu businees area, close to the COEX shopping mall and has a lot of good restaurants in walking distance. The room is small but the breakfast buffet at 18,000 won is great.

Excellent 3* Hotel

The service was brilliant. Staff will help or assist in whatever your needs. (e.g. Arr jet lagged - gave me breakfast at 4am). Rooms clean and comfortable. This is good standard 3* hotel.
