Hotel Question

by roongrot99

Is "Novotel Ambassador Gangnam Seoul" and "KANGNAM IBIS HOTEL" the same one?


Re: Hotel Question

by olddude

No they are are not the same. The Ibis and Novetel are near each other and belong to the Ambassodor group of hotels but are two completely seperate establishments. Ibis is only about a year old and the Novetel was built in '93 I think. Both are near the COEX.

Re: Hotel Question

by tyusen

For your information, the Accor Group has 4 hotels in Seoul; Sofitel Ambassador, Novotel Ambassador Kangnam, Novotel Ambassador Doksan and Ibis Seoul. These hotels except Ibis have their own bars named "Gran-A". You can enjoy a nightlife of Seoul at Gran-As. Of course with live music by Filipino bands!

Travel Tips for Seoul

Vending Machines

by machomikemd

Like Japan, South Korea has Lots of vending machines to cater to anyone but the japanese have more of these ubiquitous vendos! They offer 24 hour convenience of buying anything you crave that is available in a vending machine. Disadvantage is that you need to have small bills (1,000 won and 5,000 won).

Drinking in Korea

by Ewingjr98

Beer, or "Maekju" in Hangeul, in probably the most popular Korean drink for foreigners. The two most common brands are OB (Oriental Brewery) and Cass.

OB, first brewed in 1933, has 4.4 % alcohol and claims "timeless enduring heritage, craftsmanship and new rice addition deliver refreshing smoothness and clean aftertaste, making OB the most drinkable beer." I'll admit, OB is VERY drinkable, but I really couldn't taste their "new rice addition."

Cass is the newer brand, and has 4.5 % alcohol by volume. Rather than taste, Cass declares itself as "the Refrashing Beer that Vitalizes Youth and is Cold-filtered for the most Freshness." If I can say one thing about Cass, it certainly Vitalizes Youth, if my understanding is the same as theirs... During my time here, I never quite figured out how to say "Cass" so that Koreans understood me... I tried cass, cahs, caws, cassa, cassu, caus, and other varients with no luck. If anyone can give me the correct pronunciation (and something it rhymes with), I'll be forever in debt!.

You will occasionally see Hite beer, Hite Stout, and Cafri but none are as Drinkable or Vitalizing as OB and Cass. Through my most dilligent research, I have concluded that OB, Cass, and Cafri are all brewed by the same company -- see Oriental Brewing Co's website at Hite's website is
