ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong
Ranked #69 of 505 Hotels in Seoul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Spent just two nights here in April 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Location is perfect - the bus from the airport drops you off literally right in front of the hotel. There is so much shopping, food and activity around the hotel that you can walk everywhere, and the public transportation subway station is right outside as well. The room was pretty small and the bed was a little hard, but I found that to be pretty standard throughout all of Asia. Great customer service. Would recommend this hotel.

The Ibis is a business-looking hotel at an excellent location in the center of Seoul in the happening Myeong-dong district. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is great, and the gym and spa are excellent additions. The staff is helpful, and in general the stay here was extremely comfortable. The only thing is that for what it is, the hotel is not cheap, but I understand that hotel prices in general have been skyrocketing in Seoul.

I've seen Ibis from my corporate hotel across the road, and having cleaned out my room reward points in January, I booked two nights at Ibis to meet up with a friend who had a three day Seoul stopover.

I downgraded my expectations prior to checking in at Ibis, but ended up pleasantly surprised. My friend who is used to four or five star hotels liked Ibis Myeongdong too. Ibis management and staff do go the extra mile, rerouting the airport bus to stop at its doorsteps helps tremendously, plus an A+ location on the fringe of Seoul shopping central. Clean room, comfy bed, a good blast from the shower, service oriented staff, diligent housekeeping- basics for a good stay were all checked. Now, for the extras that Ibis provide that the expensive Lotte Hotel and Westin Chosun on the opposite side of the road do not - free wifi in room and scheduled guest shuttle services to popular tourist hotspots like Itaewon and Insadong. If I am paying for my room in Seoul, Ibis gets my vote.
