“Convenient and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

We stayed 6 nights at the Ibis. It Is located in a very convenient area and the airport bus stop is right in front of the hotel. The hotel is also close to the metro and we bought a t-money pass which makes it easy to ride the metro. The room was on the small side but clean and quiet -- bed was comfortable. We had the hotel buffet breakfast which was good and their coffee machine was great.
Hotel staff were very nice and spoke English. I left my sunglasses at the hotel and when we returned a week later for 2 nights, I asked if, by chance, they had found them. To my
surprise, housekeeping had them and returned them to me right away.

We recently stayed here and agreed with other travellers that the airport limousine conveniently stopped in front of the hotel. The back lane of the hotel is like a night market paradise filled with lots of things to see, shop and eat. I particularly like the restaurant just behind the hotel, so convenient. You can also walk to the train station as guided by the reception staff. The hotel room is small but cosy with free WiFi and quite many TV channels to watch. The view outside the window is the Lotte Shopping centre!!! Definitely coming back here again (^_^)... I love Seoul....

We recently stayed at the Ibis in Myeong-dong and can highly recommend it. The location is excellent. We had seen several reviews (prior to booking) complaining about the size of the rooms, so we paid the extra and had a junior suite and it was well worth the extra. The room was a great size and we had a good view looking towards Namdaemun and overlooking the nightly market stalls.

The airport limousine but stop is right at the front door as is a subway stop. The food on offer around the area (street food and restaurant food) is sensational and very good value. We left Seoul for a few of days and on returning decided the Ibis was the best location in Seoul, so all up we ended up spending about two weeks there. When we returned we did have a standard room for one night which was small but it served its purpose. We then moved back to a junior suite the next night.

The housekeeping staff did a sensational job and every afternoon we would come back to an immaculately clean room. Their housekeeping staff must be the best in Seoul and should be commended for their efforts.

We found the bathrooms to be completely adequate. They are small but extremely functional and the shower had the best water pressure I’ve ever had in a hotel.

Additionally, the coin laundry facilities on the 10th floor were a sensational idea. Got most of our washing done before leaving Korea which saves a lot of work when returning home.

The staff on reception on the 19th floor were fantastic and efficient as were the concierge staff on the ground floor. Nothing was too much trouble and they spoke English very well which was handy for us as we unfortunately don’t speak Korean. They were very helpful with directions etc.

We will definitely stay here again when back in Seoul.

Room Tip: Go for the junior suite - we stayed in 1426 and 1226 - would recommend either.

For tourist like me, this hotel location is one of the best. Located center of shopping n dining district. Very easy to tour around n beside subway station. Although the rooms are quite small, for a family you may request addtl pillows n blanket n get it yourself. They have no extrabed. They give nice freebie tumbler.
Dont expect good room service n housekeeping. But at least they makeup room daily. Price of hotel is quite higher
But i will complement this hotel's nice location.
