Grand Ambassador Hotel

Time Out says

Listed as one of the top 25 hotels of TripAdvisor's 2015 Traveler’s Choice Awards, the hotel is well- loved by tourists for its proximity to DDP, Gwanghwamun, and the national palaces. It isn’t exactly set in the trendiest of neighborhoods, but rooms overlook Namsan tower and a shuttle bus takes you straight to Dongdaemun, Itaewon, and Myeongdong. But what's the hotel's real highlight? The answer is diversity. Not only does the hotel offer the typical western-inspired hotel rooms with clean sheets and tall beds (duh), but it also provides ‘Korean Style Traditional Rooms’ heated by an ondol system. This means you'll be sleeping on plush bedding right above the heated floor, just like the Koreans do. But if you are not looking for overnight accommodation, the Kings Buffet features a seafood feast for, well, a king. Oh, and the head chef of Sushi Hyo? He made a cameo appearance in the "Mr. Sushi King" manga series and runs the main restaurant branch in Cheongdam, too..
