Almost a good experience, however there was no iron provided (had to be sent up and ironing board was wobbly and peeling) and was charged for breakfast though was told this was included! After pointing out the charge I was told it was deducted from my charges only to have it resurface again at checkout! Not sure if this was due to a language barrier or not. Also there was trouble booking a DMZ tour which I was told I had plenty of time for, only to be told that due to increasing tensions there would have to be a three day advance booking. How is that helpful? Aren't you the concierge, not me?Business travelers who like wrinkled clothes, this is your place. Leisure travelers, look elsewhereView management response »
Management responseThank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Seoul Ambassador Gangnam Sodowe. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies.Regarding the iron & iron board, we have the plan to set them up in all guest's room in the near future. And for the DMZ tour, I assume that there was a miscommunication between sttaffs and you with DMZ and Panmunjum tour. Only panmunjum tour needed to make a reservation at least 3 days prior to tour day.At Mercure, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence.We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.Sincerely,Jenna JUNGAsst.

"Excellent Gangnam location"

Great value and very convenient access to Metro and an airport bus stop. Good for Gangnam area stays to Gangam station and COEX mall is just 2 stops away. Hotel is quite new with a modern spacious all-glass bathroom design so pick your roommate carefully! There is a privacy partition.View management response »

This was my second time to stay in this hotel. I was satisfied in all aspects last time and I just booked this hotel again with my family. As compared with last time, I was totally disappointed. The carpet of the corridor was very dirty. The housekeeping did not wash the used cups and spoons during our stay. They gave just one bottle of complimentary water instead of two for each room.As a member of accor , I booked through the hotel website. I choose the package of free breakfast and free flow of soft drinks from the minibar everyday. The front desk even did not notice what I have chosen and have no idea about this offer. They finally just offered us welcome drinks at the lobby for one day only. Besides, I have chosen one twin room and one double room for 3 nights. I made request to ask them to arrange for us on the same floor. However, what I got was totally not what I wanted. Overall, the hotel location and the breakfast were still the best part of the hotel.View management response »

"Mercure or ibis?"
24th July 2013, hohohaha, Boston
Maybe my expectation was too high but the overall service was worse than nearby ibis.High-handed attitude of check-in staff to non-existence executive floor lounge even though the one page leaflet said we can check-in or check-out there. Happy hour was so mediocre and my friend found a huge stock in his cereal. Reported but no formal response.Have one more stay next month but I am not really expecting anything. No more stay here after next month. Period.View management response »

"Review of Accor Mercure Ambassador Seoul Early July 2013"
5th July 2013, adwaus, Melbourne, Australia
The room was well organised, not overly large but well appointed with things being in the place where you would expect. The bed was very comfortable, the room and its surroundings quiet. The desk was modern and extremely well appointed for the business traveler. The chair was comfortable even after extended periods of use at one's laptop. The Shower was easy to operate and the water pressure was excellent with good temperature. The personal amenities we good. Laundry Service was efficient and punctual. The breakfast service was very good and while buffet style was very good quality - international and Korean in flavour with the staff cooperative in style.Very good value for money, great location for Gangnam Style stays :)View management response »

"Do something to improve breakfast quality!"
19th February 2013, johnp3j, Singapore, Singapore
Great location, nice gym and spa facilities. Perfect stay if it wasn't for thepoor breakfast quality and by extension poor value for price paid. industrial tasteless scramble eggs, poor sausage, terrible quality of bread, without mentioning the tiny viennoiserie which are systematically burnt every morning. KRW24,000++ for breakfast is poor value for price paid.
"Showers that leak into the toilet area - light switches other side of the rooms"
7th February 2013, HarryTokyo_Japan, Tokyo, Japan
This hotel looks great ...but the functionality of the rooms isnt - light switch to turn on bathroom light/main switch is over near the bed , shower was blocked and filled with water , also water leaks through the gap in the shower door into the toilet area - water everywhere- had to ask three days in a row for it to be fixed.......service at front desk isnt attentive.
