Recent guest reviews
Situated in nice location within walking distance to Gangnam station. Room is nice but small. Breakfast in the hotel has limited variety and everyday the food is similar. They should introduce different varieties each day. Also beware!! This is the only Accor hotel that I have stayed so far that charge the guest for lost key card. I mis-placed my key card and was charged KRW 3,000/-. After strong negotiation with front desk during checking out that I managed to have the charge waivered. Thanks to the check out staff for his understanding to waiver off the charge.
Hotel is clean, well maintained, service is ok. Rooms are very small, not even a cupboard if you want to empty your suitcase. Ok for a few days stay. The top floor restaurant is nice, with good service, but 15000 won for a beer is too expensive. Located close to Yeoksam station and at walking distance to Gangnam station.
I actually love this hotel, it's simple and not too fussy. the rooms are ok size, the furniture reminds me of ikea which is a good thing because I love Ikea :) The location is perfect for me, it's right next to Yeoksam station and one of the airport buses stops nearby. It's only one metro stop or a short walk away from gangnam also. The only thing they needs to do is to bring back the smoking area at the front!
I just stayed at the Mercure. The staff was helpful. The location was good and close to the metro station Yeoksam. The room itself was clean but really small and faced another building. The breakfast buffet was really good but expensive. I had it one day for 27,500 won. I went to a local convenient store for a snack and then had some time to kill so I wanted to stay downstairs and check out the ambiance, which for whatever reason was a big no no. I sat down where there were tables and chairs and the said I couldn't stay there. Then I want to the lobby and they told me I couldn't sit there either. Very disappointing. So then I had to go to my room. I will never return to this hotel. The location was just ok and the hospitality was just ok as well. In this great city, Seoul, I am sure there is a better place that is in a more central area and that is more hospitable.
Stayed at the Mercure Ambassaor Gangnam for the October holidays. Great home base to discover Seoul as the Yeoksam subway station (line 2) is around the corner. Hotel still looks relatively new and rooms all have the same standardized size, no matter the configuration. Suites are double (2 standard rooms). If the breakfast buffet at the 2nd floor (KRW 25k) looks to big or expensive, go for the M Cafe at the 1st floor and enjoy the continental breakfast platter which comes for KRW 11K if you use the complimentary coupon you got at check-in. The Sky Lounge on the top floors looked busy over the weekend. Staff is friendly and helpful to the extend possible. Booked the hotel on booking and got a great deal.
I've stayed at this hotel a number of times now. It's highly recommended especially if you are on business travel and have to live somewhere close to Gangnam and need access to the subway. The airport bus 6020 also stops basically outside, so its a quick ride from the airport. The only qualm I have is that they do not have a 24 hour room service menu especially when I work late, there's no food available to be ordered from my room. They have a great gym in the basement and great hotel staff at front desk ready to help.
It was my first time staying in Mercure Hotels, I usually choose Novotel. But Mercure Gangnam exceeded my expectation. It is suitable for both business and leisure. Great food, good surroundings. Walking distance to the Gangnam Station (15 minutes). Pleasant and helpful front representative. Hotel cleanliness is spectacular.
The Mercure Ambassidor is a well positioned Hotel near Subways and bus stops. Taxis are also easily avilable from the hotel.The airport bus has a stop close to the hotel. The room is clean and has all the amenities such as mini bar, hair dryer, iron and ironing table but by US standard, it is compact. The hotel has laundry facility which is great. The breakfast menu is awesome includes continental and asian food. The front desk satff is very efficient, polite and obliging.
Very good hotel nice clean bathroom minibar and very good breakfast buffe. Very nice view from the rooftop bar and good service from staff very friendly good location near Kukkiwon Taekwondo Headquarters.
Friendly, efficient and helpful staff. Room was spacious and clean l. Wifi good. Dont force me to write a 200 word review. I nearly didnt bother which would have been a shame as evry thng was so prfct
