AccorHotels to welcome four properties to Seoul Dragon City

Seoul Dragon City will open on October 1st, featuring four AccorHotels brands.

In total the French hospitality giant will offer 1,700 rooms, 11 restaurants and bars, 17 meeting rooms, two multi-function grand ballrooms, and four floors of entertainment in a Sky Bridge suspended between two of the towers.

The new ‘lifestyle hotel-plex’ is located in the centre of Seoul close to major business districts such as Yeouido and Gangnam, as well as commercial districts including Itaewon and Myeongdong.

The complex is adjacent to malls and shopping centres, movie theatres, tourist attractions and embassies.

It is 57 kilometres from Incheon International Airport and 22 kilometres from Gimpo International Airport.


Seoul Dragon City will feature the 202-room Grand Mercure Ambassador Seoul Yongsan, 286-room Novotel Suites Ambassador Seoul Yongsan, 621-room Novotel Ambassador Seoul Yongsan and a 591-room ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Yongsan.

“This year has been a record-breaking year for AccorHotels in South Korea, highlighted by this launch of the largest project we have signed in the country featuring four hotel brands in the same complex, including the introduction of Grand Mercure and Novotel Suites in this market,” said Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of AccorHotels, upper south-east and north-east Asia.

“Together, the four brands can cater to the needs of every guest.

“Grand Mercure combines rich Korean culture with elegant service, making it a great option for long-stay guests who require full residence services.

“Our Novotel Suites will attract medium to long-stay business travellers and families on urban holidays.

“By the end of this year, the group will have 24 hotels in South Korea, which will be followed by eight more in the next two years.

“We will also be diversifying our brand portfolio to the luxury segment in the near future.”
