Featuring 317 rooms, the newly refurbished and rebranded hotel is located in the Teheran-Ro business area of the trendy Gangnam District, near several entertainment and shopping attractions, and just a 10 minute walk to COEX Convention Centre.


“The renovation and rebranding of ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Gangnam will offer both business and leisure travellers a new level of service and style representative of the ‘all inclusive’ Ibis Styles brand that resonates simplicity, generosity, quality and conviviality,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for AccorHotels Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. “It is the second ibis Styles in Korea following the opening of ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong earlier this year. The hotel represents our continued commitment to strengthen our network in the country, which includes plans to open six new hotels by 2018.”

“By upgrading the physical spaces and broadening the scope of service, the renovations and rebranding transform the hotel into a lifestyle destination that better caters to  the needs of travellers today,” said Cho Min-sook, General Manager of both ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Gangnam and ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong. “ibis Ambassador Seoul Gangnam was Korea’s first business hotel in 2003, and with the new concept of the ibis Styles brand, ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Gangnam will cater well to the design-centric, tech-savvy crowd, which is one of the fastest growing segments in the hospitality scene.”
