All the staff in the hotel are very friendly, especially front desk and concierge really helpful.
비지니스 목적으로 그랜드 앰배서더에 방문하였습니다. 모든 직원들이 너무 친절해서 좋았고 객실도 깨끗해서 맘에 들었습니다. 한국에 방문할때마다 꼭 들릴것 같습니다. Thanks to all and see you next time!

My wife and I traveled to Seoul to visit my son and his family; he is an airman in the US Air Force. Seoul is a good place to stay and is about an hour from Osan Air Base. I'm a blue-collar worker like most people reading this review. My travel agent suggested this hotel for our stay. I'm so glad that she did. This place is a great place stay while visiting Seoul. I've stayed at many places and have been to many places in my 55 years. This hotel was probably the best place that I've stayed. The facility is very clean. The rooms are very clean and modern. The hotel staff is amazing. Many of the staff speak and read English well. They are very eager to help you in any way they can. I would like to point out 2 people that were very helpful to us, and they were Julia and Jade on the 16th floor. I will also say; the entire hotel staff is very helpful and respectful! In all fairness to write an honest review, I found one thing that I thought may be a negative, that is, everything sold by this hotel, whether it's food, alcohol, services, coffee, etc. is all overpriced. I could probably say that about any hotel, but to be fair, I wanted to include that. There is also no one or nothing at the hotel that is telling you to buy anything there. There is many other places outside of the hotel you can eat if you want. There is so much more I would like to say, but I'm limited by TripAdvisor on the length. In short, if you're coming to Seoul, stay here! You won't be sorry!

I arrived early in the morning after almost 13 hours of a long flight. The check-in agent
Lee,JH offered very welcoming and efficiently checked me in right away despite early hours. The room was very spacious, feels cheerful and clean, well arranged nice furniture, fluffy white towels, specially requested anti-allergy non-feather pillows were all in place already. The temperature was getting too warm in the room but it was no problem for the professional staffs. The problem was solved right away. Staying 8 nights there, I felt home and happy. Especially, the reception and concierge staffs provided seamless perfect services. All the staffs were courteous and helpful.
Thank you so much front desk team once again. I felt home while staying at G. Ambassador.

I did not get a chance to try all F&B facilities but I do have a comment on the Chinese restaurant. I wasn't feeling well one-morning and I contacted the Chinese restaurant hoping to have a quick warm lunch but I was told that the restaurant was fully booked and no-table for one person. I informed the girl on the phone that I was the hotel guest. But the answer was no! The receptionist was very rude. (I heard later that the restaurant is not managed by the hotel. It is privately owned).
Out of frustration, I contacted the Hotel duty mgr. Lim.JH., who went over to that Chinese rest. and managed a table for me for lunch alone. Guess what! There were several private (or group) rooms occupied, but not in the hall. I was the third person sitting there for lunch. Since the rest. is located inside the hotel property, I hope to see service improvement towards expected 5* hotel services on my next visit in April '20.
The hotel location was convenient, practical shuttle bus services, Nice park around the corner, and the Nam mountain in near distance for light hiking. Subway station nearby.
Small fridge and safe box, good wifi connection were also in the room.
Yes, I will be back.
