Hotel Naru Seoul MGallery Ambassador (Deluxe River view, King bed)
To celebrate both my birthday and Christmas, I went on a hotel staycation with a friend in the last week of 2023.
My Friends told me about this hotel, and I was excited to stay there since it would be my first experience with a hotel that had a view of the Han River.
A lovely tree greeted us, maybe because it was the last month of the year.
Upon entering the hotel from the parking lot, we noticed a cafe on the left and an elevator leading to the lobby on the right.
There is a valet fee of 30,000 won for every vehicle that uses the parking lot. If I had known beforehand, we would not have brought the car.
You can find the lobby on the 20th floor.
A panorama of the Han River appears when the elevator door opens.
We were informed that we may be moved to a higher floor if we waited for around one hour, but because it wasn't necessary, we decided to check in immediately and were given room 708.
Room 708 (Deluxe River view, King bed)
Bamseom Island and the Han River are visible as soon as you go into the room. Once the sun goes down, I think it will take on an even more beautiful appearance.
Although it wasn't particularly large, the room had a comfortable atmosphere.
The amenities in the bathroom were "Grown Alchemist" products. Having all the necessary toiletries provided was a lovely touch, especially for someone as lazy as me.
Within the shower booth, you'll also find shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
Fortunately, there was bath salt, even though I forgot to bring any. So, I filled the tub with water right away.
two sizes of room slippers: small and large.
Beverages are available in the fridge, but they will all cost you money if you drink them. The bottled water at the home bar is complimentary.
The box on the desk contains two wires for charging your mobile device.
A king-size bed with so much space.
I made myself a delicious espresso in my room after drinking some bad coffee just before checking in.
While having a bath, I looked at the clock and saw that it was a bit after sunset. I quickly went to the window, but it was already dark. Still, I'm glad I saw at least a pink sunset.
We got hungry after gazing at the sunset for a bit, so we had Kimchijjim (steamed kimchi) delivered. You have to pick up your food from the first floor and be sure to ask for disposable cutlery when you order for delivery.
Breakfast (Restaurant Voisin)
Since I had heard great things about the hotel's breakfast, I booked a package that included breakfast. I was really looking forward to it.
The buffet restaurant was very spacious and all the food looked so fresh and tasty. Looking back at the images makes me sad because I regret not trying more foods while I was there.
Everyone has the option to order egg dishes; we went with an omelet.
My favorite Kaya(coconut) Jam was also there. With Kaya jam and butter on toast, it is absolutely tasty.
A little distance from the primary salad bar you'll find the bread and desserts.
This hotel is really fantastic. However, there are no trendy spots like well-known eateries or cafes in the area, which is the one real letdown.
Free use of the pool, sauna, and fitness center is also available; however, I was unable to take advantage of these facilities since I forgot to pack the necessary equipment.
