Seoul’s rising hotspot of Hongdae, a precinct in the northwestern part of the Korean capital, is set to welcome Mercure Ambassador Seoul Hongdae come August.
The hotel will be the third Mercure-branded hotel in South Korea, and adds to Accor’s existing 15 hotels in Seoul, said Vincent Lelay, vice president of operations at the French hospitality chain.
Featuring 270 guest rooms, the hotel boasts an all-day-dining restaurant, a lobby bar, fitness centre and laundromat. A business corner and meeting facilities are available for corporate meetings and events, and an outdoor courtyard garden can host private parties and cocktails.
All guest rooms are fully equipped with Internet of Things, allowing guests to easily control amenities through their own smart devices, while Chromecast and Bluetooth speakers enhance the digital experience.
Located in close proximity to four universities and a host of cafes, galleries, fashion stores and bars, the vibrant and youthful vibe of the Hongdae district will be showcased through the trendy art pieces and murals of the hotel.
The Hongdae Subway Station connects the property with three subway line connections, enabling guests to explore the district’s bustling urban arts and music scene.
Mercure Ambassador Seoul Hongdae is managed by Accor Ambassador Korea Hotel Management, a joint venture company built in partnership between Accor and Ambassador Hotel Group. The company currently operates 24 hotels across seven cities in the country through management and franchise contract.
