Bonus points: A coin-operated laundry room and a refreshing hot spa.
Of all the hotels I've stayed at in Seoul (possibly some 15), this hotel had the only disappointing bathroom I've experienced - very small, and with no bottled water. The spa, however, redeemed the hotel.

5mins from Subway Exit
The picture shows a rooftop view, but there is no access to it. Otherwise everything is good, free water dispenser and convenient store just next to the hotel.

Amazing location and more
The location not just close to Insadong but also to Jongno 3-ga subway and neighborhood. The hot tub and gym were perfect to relax after walking all day and the beautiful rooftop patio is a huge bonus

Extremely comfortable, affordable, central
Price, central location, comfortable room
Ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong Hotel is one of the best non-luxury hotels I've ever stayed at. Rooms are extremely clean, the bed is soft by Asian standards, breakfast and lunch buffets are generous for the price point, and facilities are modern. Ibis cuts cost in ways that don't impact the stay much: there are no disposable toiletries (there is a shampoo/body wash dispenser in the shower) but you can buy a toothbursh, razor, etc for a reasonable price. There's no mini bar, but you still get a fridge in the room. Porters do not carry luggage to your room, but there are luggage carts available. Service is oriented towards self-resolution. For example, when asked to book a taxi, front desk staff wrote down the name of our destination in Korean and instructed us to hail a cab outside, which proved easy enough. When we asked more general questions or had issues with facilities (a safe with low batteries), staff responded quickly and comprehensively. Notably, laundry machines let you wash or dry your clothes for KRW 1,000/load, which is very competitive. There are also hot/cold/warm water dispensing machines on each floor, so there's no need to get bottled water. The rooms were wonderfully cosy. They were not large, but there was enough room for a desk, closet, shelving, and a bench. My companion and I both slept unusually well while staying here. Finally, the location is fantastic. A short walk to 2 different train stations and to Insadong street, this Ibis is central, surrounded by restaurants, and easy to find.
