Ascott Opens First Citadines Serviced Residence in Seoul

Ascott has expanded its portfolio of serviced apartments in South Korea with the opening of its first Citadines-branded property in Seoul.

Situated in Yeongdeungpo-gu, close to the Yeouido and Gangnam financial districts, the 149-unit Citadines Han River Seoul  is close to Seonyudo metro station and is well connected to downtown and suburbs through the Olympic-daero, Gangbyeonbuk-ro and Gyeongin highways.

The property is also near to a wide array of tourist attractions, department stores and entertainment outlets, including one of Seouls largest shopping malls, Times Square, Seonyudo Park and Lotte Sweet Factory.

Guests can choose from studio apartments of three sizes: Studio, Studio Deluxe and Studio Executive.

Citadines Han River Seoul also has a fitness corner, a meeting room and a rooftop garden for guests to unwind.

Mr Max Phillips, Ascotts Country General Manager for Korea, said, Citadines Han River Seoul is our second Citadines-branded serviced residence in South Korea, catering to the growing number of independent travellers who prefer the flexibility to choose the services according to their lifestyles. Since Ascotts acquisition of the Citadines Aparthotel chain in 2004, Citadines has become one of our fastest growing brands and its portfolio has more than tripled from the initial 5,100 units to almost 16,000 units in 64 cities across Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.

With the opening of Citadines Han River Seoul, Ascott now manages more than 47,000 units in over 290 properties around the world, of which more than 29,000 units are operational.
