Accor to Open Four Hotels in One Complex in Seoul, South Korea

Seoul Dragon City, South Korea’s first ‘lifestyle hotel-plex’, will open on 1 October, featuring four AccorHotels brands, 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 57km from Incheon International Airport and 22km 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.

“2017 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 Southeast and Northeast Asia.

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

The Seoul Dragon City’s pièce de résistance is the Sky Bridge, with highlights including:

• King's Vacation - offering a range of cuisine and beverages, an indoor miniature swimming pool, Skywalk, and performance stage.

• Sky Beach - where guests can experience a private beach club, with music and international cuisine amongst a setting reminiscent of the legendary beach clubs of Spain, Greece, Singapore and Las Vegas.

Seoul Dragon City is located at 95 Cheongpa-ro 20-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, 04372, Korea.
