Ascott Limited has opened its first Citadines-branded property in Seoul.

The Citadines Han River Seoul serviced residence is situated in Yeongdeungpo-gu, close to Yeouido and Gangnam districts. Incheon Airport is roughly one hour away.

The property offers 149 rooms – 56 Studios, 41 Studio Deluxes and 52 Studio Executives – with sizes ranging from 20 to 29 sqm. Alternatively, 22 Studio units can be connected to a Studio Executive, creating a two-bedroom apartment with 49 sqm of space.

All rooms come with a 40-inch LCD television, with cable channels and free wifi. Both Deluxe and Executive categories are equipped with washing machine and a kitchen which has electric kettle, glassware, crockery, cutlery, utensils, microwave oven, fridge, toaster, induction cooker and rice cooker. Housekeeping services are available three times per week.

The residence also offers 24-hour reception, fitness corner, and a residents’ lounge.

The opening of the 149-unit Citadines Han River Seoul marks Ascott’s continued expansion in South Korea, with more than 1,000 units now in operation including the 410-unit Somerset Palace Seoul and 468-unit Citadines Haeundae Busan.

Max Phillips, Ascott’s country general manager for Korea, commented: “Citadines Han River Seoul is our second Citadines-branded serviced residence in South Korea, catering to the growing number of independent travellers who prefer the flexibility to choose the services according to their lifestyles.”

Two Citadines also started operation early this week in Hong Kong – Citadines Harbourview Hong Kong and Citadines Mercer Hong Kong.
