Accor Ambassador Korea has announced the launch of its first MGallery hotel in partnership with Pungnong Co., Ltd. Set to open in 2022, the project will include residences, offices and a hotel.

“The signing of an MGallery Hotel in Seoul marks a key milestone for our Group, as it represents our focus on expanding Accor’s luxury hotel portfolio in South Korea. The MGallery brand is a beautiful collection of addresses where each hotel is individually styled allowing guests to experience a range of locally-inspired offerings. We are delighted to expand the brand’s presence in Northeast Asia following the recent launch of our first MGallery hotel in Japan with the successful opening of MGallery Kyoto Yura”, said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.

Located in Mapo, Seoul, the hotel overlooks the Hangang Rive and only five-minute walk to the central business district, shopping malls and local attraction sites.

The hotel will feature 197 guestrooms, a range of dining outlets, an outdoor swimming pool and meeting spaces for weddings, conferences and events.

Accor Ambassador Korea Hotel Management Co., Ltd. currently operates 24 hotels in South Korea with 5 hotels in the pipeline slated to open by 2022.

The MGallery Hotel in Seoul joins a collection of more than 100 boutique hotels in 26 countries, including Hotel Molitor Paris, INK Hotel Amsterdam and Hotel des Arts Saigon in Vietnam to name a few. The brand will also expand its collection with captivating new hotels under development.
