Earlier this week, AccorHotels announced a new hotel in the heart of South Korea's posh Gangnam district. Slated for opening in October, the Alcove Hotel Seoul features 108 rooms across seven room types, as well as a commanding view of the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Seolleung and Jeongneung (Seonjeongneung) Royal Park.
"Last year we celebrated 30 years of our partnership with Ambassador Hotel Group, and today, we are excited to embark on a new chapter together. The opening of Alcove Hotel Seoul offers travellers to the city a design experience with personalized service and an individual charm that are hallmarks of the property," said Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
In terms of culinary offerings, there's the Salmanazar Restaurant, which serves a range of American classic dishes. Salmanazar Cafe, on the other hand, offers all-day and all-night dining, complete with gourmet coffee, freshly baked pastries and a selection of wines. For something more intimate and exclusive, guests can head to Bluewood House lounge and bar - members only.
"Alcove Hotel Seoul Managed by AccorHotels is perfect for guest looking for a short getaway. The hotel is located in the heart of Gangnam which is well-known for its underground shopping centres and malls. We look forward to welcoming guests that appreciate creative design with a touch of personalized service in Seoul's most hip and stylish district," said Jae-Yeon Kang, general manager of Alcove Hotel Seoul.
