I chose this spot for a staycation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a bit of miscommunication about my food allergies, but they quickly fixed the problem and I was able to continue to enjoy my stay. The bed was very comfortable and having a washing machine in room was very useful. I was also able to enjoy some of the food at the hotel. It was very delicious. I'd love to come again.

I was delighted to stay in the highest floor. Food was great, location was great as it is short walking distance to Yongsan station. My only issue that I had was when I tried to book another day, via the room I was currently in, I was immediately told that they we were all booked/sold out and I needed to leave. It seemed like the woman didn’t even check to if she could accommodate us. I immediately got off the phone and book the same room on the Novotel website without ANY issues. This was extremely disappointing and inconvenient because we had to check out, wait three hours, then check back in. We ended up losing 3 hours in our day plans. This could have all been avoided if the woman would’ve just took the time to check if we could keep the room we were already in.

Nice View

I stayed on the 32nd floor, a suite room. The view was amazing. As a platinum member I get to enjoy the breakfast & evening cocktail at the lounge on the 26th floor. All sounded good until the breakfast que was more than a 30mins wait! Apparently it’s always overcrowded on weekends- so I was told to go to the 2nd floor- the food exchange - not a dine in - also overcrowded- I was given some boxes to do a take out to eat in my room. The buffet was the same food every morning. So I was already bored with the breakfast by day 3. Wasn’t what I expected when I booked a weekend trip!! Housekeeping was good, the in room menu had a good variety & the food was good. The hotel has a bridge that links to the yongsan station & also some malls. Easy access. There are several hotels that’s connected together to form the Dragon City. Worth a visit.

Mediocre room service and entertainment options not a good look for Novotel Suites

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Hc Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

For a supposedly five star hotel, this experience was definitely dissatisfying due to two main reasons. Probably the biggest issue was the fact that the suites lacked any sort of Video on Demand or Netflix/streaming options--which was deliberately not mentioned before check-in. For the demanded price, in 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the lack of this option and its intentional obfuscation was simply appalling. What's more baffling is that we were told that only some suites have the Netflix option, which devolves what should be a five-star hotel experience to a "Squid Game" of sorts where only the lucky survive with what should be basic in-suite entertainment. This dearth of entertainment options was topped by lackluster, and therefore perceived as quite expensive, room service. Coming in, we were excited and more than happy to spare no expense in exploring the room service options. However, what we got instead of a five-star worthy dessert was a mouth-numbing, frigid panna cotta that was not only extremely cold but literally frozen solid (a proper panna cotta should be soft enough that it should quiver when you barely touch it)! Desperate for relief, we turned to the pumpkin cheesecake, which to our horror was also about as cold and hard as a refrozen store-bought ice cream. To add insult to injury, they didn't even offer ice cream options in their room service menu. Overall, I would say this experience was not a good look for this hotel or its company, as the issues that I mentioned were not limited to service itself (check-out staff was rather unresponsive and aloof when we noted the issues) but rather managerial, structural problems within the menu, service structure, and the entire system.

Overall satisfied. Room cleaning can be improved. One house-keeping staff came into a room without ringing a bell which was annoying as I was in the middle of the meeting.

Nice Worcation for 36 Hours

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Daydream15564947693 TripAdvisor review

I have reserved the hotel from Accor All app. I have booked the Indulgence Package, and the staffs graciously upgraded my Junior Suite to Deluxe Suite(thanks to my Accor Gold status) The room was clean and well designed, able to host two-people-at-work. The food at The 26 was delicious, yet the signature Mega Burger from the Megabite was a little bit disappointing(too much grilled veggies). Because of Covid19, some F&B outlets offer limited services; the hotel is famous for its fine outlets such as Sky Kingdom, Food Exchange, InStyles, covering wide spectrum from economic scale to luxury level. If you want to enjoy the full service, you should stay during the weekends. It was a shame that I didn't receive the usual Welcome Amenities(+Letter) usually the Accor chain offers to their Gold-Level-And-Above members, but since they have upgraded the room for 36 Hours, I chose not to claim about it. I would like to revisit the property sooner or later.

Good Stay turned below average

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Danl Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

I am a platinum member, travelled with my junior colleague from the US to South Korea for business. Novotel Yongsan offered a good value for my 3 days stay in Seoul. A lead staff handled/miscommunicated at the executive lounge on the 26th floor on Thursday July 1, which made my trip unpleasant. We stayed past 7:30pm (a normal closing time of the executive lounge) and left around 8:30pm, I picked up a couple of soft drinks (~ $3 or $5 each) on our way out. The lead staff approached and informed me that the hotel does not allowed to take the drinks out after 7:30pm, however he "will not charge this one time, please don’t do again next time". I would be happy for pay for the soft drinks, however his English was not good enough to convey the message, i felt embarrass in front of my junior colleague. In my previous trips, I stayed at Novel Ambassador Doksan, Swissotel (encouraged) in Singapore and had no problem of taking out beverage during and after hours of the executive lounges. Hope your staffs are trained to better handle the same situation next time.

We spent 3 nights before we fly back to Copenhagen and it was a perfect choice to stay at Novotel Suites Ambassador Seoul Yongsan especially since both of us had to work in the Central European Time Zone. The room was spacious and well equipped, we thoroughly enjoyed the great view of N tower day and night. The housekeeping service was very thoughtful and consistent. One disappointing part was the breakfast, perhaps we went down too close to the ending time.

Sang Cheun P Business - TripAdvisor review

The best facilities and overwhelming scenery are excellent. It also satisfies with a professional service system. However, the fact that two hairs came out of the room's towel indicates a decline in the quality of the room service. It wasn't like that before, but something seems to have changed recently. If they're more interested in the cleanliness of the room's equipment, i can say it's the best hotel.

excellent hotel close to yongsan station, which makes it easy to travel throughout Seoul. Rooms are very modern and comfortable. No noise and a good bed make it a pleasure to stay. Around the hotel all is quiet in the evening, so if you are looking for lively entertainment it's a 5 min taxi ride.
