      Trip was great until the staff.....”

      Loved everything about IBC Hotel. Room was clean, make up room was relatively late so we could sleep in without worrying if the cleaner is coming. Aircon was strong for the hot summer as well. Everything was great until the staff provided us with a WRONG (LONG) way to the airport limousine bus route. She gave us a printed naver map routing towards the bus stop, but decided to advise and draw us another route to the airport WHICH IS WAY LONGER AND HARDER TO GO SINCE WE ARE CARRYING BULKY LUGGAGE AND GOODS FROM LOTTE MART!!!! The actual naver map route is so much simpler and easier to walk but stupid us trusted her and walked that long route. Moreover, i asked her if the 6002 bus stop is the same as the one we alighted when we came, AND SHE TOLD ME YES. Its either she did not know the route well, or just could not understand my question. All in all, the stay in IBC was great and would come back again, since i already know which bus stop to go to. 🙄

      The best hotel in this area!”

      This is a new hotel and things are still well maintained. This hotel is a little bit further away from subway stations compared to other similar hotels nearby, it is sort of in the middle of two subway stations. The area is very lively during weekend, food in this area is really cheap.

      Good Experience Here!”

      We really liked our stay here, the location and gym were our favorite parts. The only real downside was that it was a bit loud. We could here people in the next room on our first night and the doors are so loud when they close - they basically don't close they slam, they're too pressurized or something. If you're sensitive to noise then you're taking a bit of a risk at this hotel. Overall, we were happy here and would recommend it overall.

      Nice and clean room. Helpful hotel staff.”

      This hotel is a little far from the airport limousine shuttle bus stop and the metro station (Sinseol-dong station, exit 10). It is not that convenient if you have a bigger briefcase and need to carry it all the way to the hotel, especially during rainy days. Without big luggage, it is fine anyway. Just about 6-8 mins walk from the hotel to the metro station. Hotel room is clean and the space is just nice for a single occupant. It was a pleasant stay in this hotel as the hotel staff are helpful and they could direct guests well when I need the direction to the nearest metro station. Recommended!

      Well worth the price ”

      The hotel was value for money. Located near exit 10 of Sinseol-dong station Line 1, it was only 2 stops away from Dongdaemun. However, it's far enough to escape the hustle and bustle of busy commercial areas. Line 2 is less used due to the orientation of the lines. Be prepared to walk a lot to get to Line 1 though it's an interchange station. Back to the hotel, they let us check in early without additional charges. The front desk staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean and adequate. The hotel toiletries were very good and in some ways, better than the commercial products that we had (the conditioner and body lotion was superb!). Breakfast was a small selection of east and west but for KRW9900, I couldn't complain. One thing that we missed was the weekend folk market which is near the hotel as we had to go to our next destination on Saturday. If we do come back to Seoul, this hotel will be on the shortlist. Minor issue: smoky smell in the bathroom on first day as the ventilation carried the smoke from other rooms. Though this was a non-smoking hotel, they couldn't control what some guests did. The hotel staff did promptly sprayed and cleaned what he could to make it tolerable. After the first day, the smell was less. Presumably the smoking guest checked out.

      Very nicely decorated hotel. Staffs were friendly and attentive. Clean and there's even a cafe and a convenience store at the lobby. However, the hotel could've been much more closer to Dongdaemun. But fret not as the subway stations are only a few metres walk away.

      The hotel is in sinseol-dong in Line 1. It's near the metro exit and not far from the airport bus stop too. There's an Emart nearby which is quite convenient for shopping or buying some snacks as souvenirs. Down there's a local food restaurant which opens for 24 hours. The taste of their food was out of my expectations --- so delicious !! The room was clean and the staff were helpful. I would surely recommend this hotel to my friends.
