Accor Ambassador Korea Hotel Management Co Ltd has announced it will launch the MGallery brand in the heart of Seoul in 2022.
The MGallery hotel in Seoul will join more than a hundred boutique hotels in 26 countries, including Hotel Molitor Paris, INK Hotel Amsterdam and Hotel des Arts Saigon in Vietnam. The property will feature 197 guestrooms, a range of dining outlets, an outdoor swimming pool and meeting spaces for weddings, conferences and events.
Located strategically in Mapo, Seoul, the hotel will provide views of the Hangang River and the Yeouido city skyline. Also accessible are the central business district, shopping malls, as well as local attraction sites.
Mapo’s residential district is known as the ‘Land of Morning Calm’.
“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.
“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.
Made up of historic luxury hotels, the MGallery brand aims to be “a gateway to another world” such as a bygone era or a dreamy landscape.
“A bewitching mix of ancient and modern metropolis”
“Seoul is a bewitching mix of ancient and modern metropolis that has earned its title as the UNESCO City of design. Enriched with a history dating back 600 years ago in the Joseon Dynasty, the city offers a diverse array of lifestyle, entertainment and dining options.
“We look forward to sharing enriching stories with both visitors and locals that showcase Korea’s vibrant culture with the opening of MGallery Seoul”, added Vincent Lelay, vice president of operations for South Korea.
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.
