Very nice hotel. ”

Value, Cleanliness, location
None

I stayed at the Ibis Myeong Dong after reading a few reviews of this hotel on this site, as well as others. I was not disappointed. The best thing about this hotel is the value and location...in the heart of Seoul. The hotel is located in Myeong Dong, which is the heart of the financial and shopping district of Seoul. Right outside the hotel are many shops, restaurants, both local and foreign, and even a night market. It is close to the Seoul subway, and is centrally located, so it is easy to access other parts of Seoul. Inside the hotel, it is very modern and clean. Note that it is not a five star luxury hotel, but is is clean and good enough so that anyone who stays there cannot really complain, especially given the price compared to the luxury hotels in Seoul (Shilla, Park Hyatt, InterContinental, Lotte, W, etc). Overall, if you are looking for a nice, comfortable, and clean place to stay in a great location for a very reasonable price in Seoul, the Ibis Myeong Dong is hard to beat.

Perfect location for shopaholic”

Best location, super fast internet, very friendly and helpful staff

best decision we've ever made to stay in Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong! it was our 1st trip to seoul. airport shuttle bus from incheon (10,000KRW per trip) stop in front of the hotel, and it's just next to myeongdong shopping center, on the opposite of Lotte Young Plaza, Lotte Duty Free. Hotel is very close to the subway, walkable distance to city hall. staff are friendly and very helpful, on our 3rd day they help us book the bus to go to everland. very near to dongdaemun so you don't have to worry on the taxi fare after those late night shoppings. convenience store and coffee shop are just in front of the hotel. there is a small shop too selling super cute korean socks at only 1,000KRW ea! explore the myeongdong underground shopping as well, as you step out out of the hotel entrance. amazing stay and highly recommend Ibis to all our family and friends. definitely will stay here again on our next visit to Seoul.

Short holiday in Seoul”

Great location; quiet, clean, comfortable rooms; high-speed internet; friendly and helpful staff; easy access to public transportation; walking distance to Seoul Tower, museums, palaces; in the center of great shopping and restaurants.
Rooms are a bit on the small side

My wife and I live and work in Cambodia. We had a short time to take a holiday and decided to go to South Korea on a whim. We were extremely glad we did. It was our first visit to Seoul. I found the Ibis Hotel on Agoda and chose it because of location and good reviews. We were very satisfied with the hotel for the reasons listed above. A bus from the Inchon airport picks up and drops off right in front of the Ibis. Because we only had 4 days in Seoul, we filled our days with sight-seeing at the many beautiful palaces and gardens, museums, shrines, etc. The Ibis is located in the center of Myeong-dong (business and shopping district). It's right across the street from a high-end shopping center called Lotte. But we never went inside a single shopping mall, because we were more interested in cultural and historical sights. The fall weather was great! We walked from the hotel on 2 separate mornings to the walking trail at the base of the Seoul Tower. We found many great places near the hotel to sample great Korean food. The hotel room was small, but clean and comfortable. The shower stall was well-arranged. We would definitely recommend staying here for the price we found on Agoda. We didn't eat at the hotel, so can't comment on food at Ibis.

Great location and service! ”

great location, English-speaking staff, water and ice dispenser on each floor

We took the Airport Limousine Bus (no. 6015) from Incheon International Airport right to the doorstep of Ibis Seoul Myeong-dong Hotel, which was extremely convenient, especially if you are carrying a huge luggage like me. The hotel is smacked right in the heart of Myeongdong which is perfect for shopaholics (again, like me)! Two subway stations (green line and blue line) are less than 5 mins' walk from the hotel, which really makes travelling within Seoul easier. Myeongdong also has a lot to offer for meal options from MacDonalds to their local delights. The receptionist greeted us with a wide smile and very good English. We were so relieved to be finally able to communicate properly with someone in Korea as most locals and even staff at the airport (e.g. DFS) do not speak much English. The hotel room definitely meets the standard of an international hotel and we were surprised to have a hot and cold water dispenser, as well as an ice dispenser and vending machine, on each floor. Overall I was very satisfied with the hotel and will definitely stay here for my next trip to Korea!

Our Second home in Seoul”

This is our 7th visit at Ibis Ambassador Myeongdong. We have been coming back here mainly because this feels like our second home in Seoul. Besides having the perfect location in the middle of Myeongdong which guarantee easy access to shopping and eating, We also enjoy the facilities of the hotel such as Hot bath daily. Of course having coin laundry facilities is also another thing that we look for as long stay travelers. It saves us a lot of luggage space as we do not need to bring a lot of clothes with us during our 1 month stay in Seoul as we can do laundry in an affordable price here at 4,500 won which includes wash, dryer and detergent price. The hotel also gives out free amnities such as tea, coffee, water daily which help travelers save lots of money I think. We are definitely going to be back again for another long stay next year when we visit Seoul!!

I am pretty impressed after reading the reviews on Ibis Myeong-Dong and hence decided to book it. And just like in the reviews, I only have good stuff to say about this hotel. A lot of Japanese, European travellers stay here as well. I highly recommend staying at Ibis Myeong-Dong! Good value for money! 1) Location (subway, tourists attractions, convenience stores, shopping stores and malls, food, etc all below hotel or within walking distance) 2) Hotel amenities (free hot & cold water & ice dispenser, free in-room internet, free rental of electrical stuff [i.e. dehumidifier], coin laundry [if u wana do your own], free shuttle from airport limo bus stop and vice versa, etc) Tip: Best to ask for a room with window (automated shutter) as I realised there is no airflow within the room [the hotel blocks usage of air-con during winter] 3) Room and en-suite bathroom (very clean, safebox, coffee/tea making amenities, work table, LCD TV, slippers, etc) 4) Hotel service (multi-lingual staff, pleasant service, etc)

good location, for shopping and food, near church

we enjoyed our 2 more nights at ibis seoul myeong-dong hotel. after returned from mr sorak. the location is so convenient for shopping and food. the room is clean and good service. feedback on improvement : the front desk staff, do not provide much information on the surrounding in myeong-dong or nearby. for us, we stayed total 7 nights at myeong-dong; so we are able to move around to know and get information outside the hotel. also, the free shuttle to some places, only have 10 seats available, so it is disappointing. the staff also do not provide much information on the places to explore. but, overall, we enjoy the stay; for it location and cleaniness. the lunch buffet is good with reasonable. thanks the staff and god bless. plus, with 7 nights, stay, is should be much cheaper, will be great and attract more people.

Great location, cozy room, good service”

location

This is my second time staying in this hotel and of course, I wouldn't have chosen it again if it wasn't a lovely stay the first time round. This hotel didn't disappoint me again! Firstly, the location is great. The airport buses stop right at the doorstep, so if you carry big pieces of luggage (full of shopping purchases) like me, this means that you don't have to lug your luggage around at all. The hotel is also right smacked in the middle of Myeong-dong, which really needs no more words to describe the joy of shopaholics like me. The Lotte Mall (including DFS) is just opposite the hotel. Even if you don't shop much, the hotel is footsteps away from exits of the Seoul Metro system, which makes it highly convenient for you to explore Seoul via metro. I discovered during this trip that the hotel is within walking distance from Euljiro 3 (sam)-ga (<2 mins), Myeong-dong (5 mins), Hoehyeon (5 mins) and Jonggak (10-15 mins) - that's accessibility to 3 different metro lines! You can also walk to Cheonggyecheon stream (5-10 mins) which is a must-see in Seoul, and from there, you can walk to Cheonggyecheon Plaza. A lot of other attractions like the palaces and museums are only a few metro stops from the hotel. I will definitely stay in this hotel again if I visit Seoul!

The hotel is within walking distance to Myeong-dong shopping area/night market and within 5 mins walk to the nearest subway station, the Euljiro-1. It is located within walking distance to Lotte Department store and Shinsege Mall. The hotel provides free shuttle service to certain tourist destination and there is a direct bus service from the airport. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay in Ibis Myeong-dong when we visit Seoul again!

Best Hotel for the price and location ”

It's really easy to get to Ibis Ambassador Myeongdong from Incheon airport. There's a direct limousine which alights just in front of the hotel. Trust me, This service is really helpful when you are going back to your home country; especially after getting tons of shoppings done in Seoul. Having the experience of living for 6 years previously in Seoul, I definitely recommend tourist to stick around Myeongdong area. This will save you time and energy when you get around. Besides shopping and food, once can also watch Nanta show in Myeongdong. This hotel also have a coin laundry service and free sauna for guests.

Perfect location , excellent and helpful staff ”

Im a business solo women who travel seoul every 2-3 month .... thats the hotel i need !!! Prefect location that airport bus just like infront of ur door step ( is just right infront of hotel lobby ) its definitely a good choice for those who traveling with big huge heavy luggange like me . Lotte department store is just oppside of ur hotel , myeongdong shopping district and nice food is just all around u within a min . Another great things about this hotel is , staff are so friendly and helpful and most of them speak well english , as in i travelled seoul nervous time , most of the hotel staff are not so friendly in seoul . Another adding point is , in seoul taxi driver dont really speak english ,even u give them a full address in english words they cant understand , but ibis hotel is well known by taxi driver , i can say 90% of the driver when u say ibis hotel myeongdong they will know where to drive u . With this price and service they provide i can say is worth it amang those hotel at myeongdong area . Highly recommend to those first timer in seoul , thats the hotel u need .

Our second time to stay in an Ibis group of hotels after Dubai. And as usual we are satisfied with the outcome of our stay at Ibis Ambassador Myeongdong. Great location within Myeongdong area just a walk away going to City Hall,to Cheonggyecheon Stream,Gwangmamun Square,Gyeongbokgung,Namdaemun market and a lot more. Plus we were there during the New years Eve countdown at the Bosingak bell ringing ceremony just a few blocks from the hotel. And there were a lot of Starbucks around the area. Was really amazing the bus/shuttle going to Vivaldi was also just a street away and bus 6015 to Incheon Airport the bus stop is just in front of the hotel. Will definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again if ever we can visit Seoul,South Korea again in the future. Thanks

Great Location and Convenient”

Great Location and Convenient

We enjoyed our 5 nights at Ibis Seoul Myeong-dong Hotel. The location is so convenient for shopping and food. The room is clean and good service. Feedback on improvement : The front desk staff, do not provide much information on the surrounding in Myeong-dong or nearby. For us, we stayed total 7 nights at Myeong-dong; so we are able to move around to know and get information outside the hotel. Also, the free shuttle to some places, only have 10 seats available, so it is disappointing. The staff also do not provide much information on the places to explore. But, overall, we enjoy the stay; for it location and cleaniness. The lunch buffet is good with reasonable. Thanks the staff and God Bless.

Wonderful Stay at the Ibis”

Best location, great service staff
Inconsistent cleaning service

My friend and I just returned from a 4night stay at the Ibis Myeong-Dong. We took both our 2year olds as well as a nanny. Although the rooms were small, they were more than sufficient for our stay. They weren't as small as some in Europe. Despite the busy and central location of the hotel, the rooms were very quiet. The walls must be full of concrete as we barely heard any noise outside. There is no better place to stay in terms of price and location. The Ibis was smack in the middle of the best shopping area, and readily accessible by subway, bus, and taxi. Restaurants are only a stone-throw's away, and the Lotte Shopping Center provides any food, amenities and groceries we needed. The only problem we had was the inconsistent cleaning of the rooms. Because we had toddlers with us, the rooms were constantly getting dirty. The cleaning crew often missed days and our beds weren't made. I spoke to a few cleaning staff and found out that they were Chinese and Mongolian. The Korean service staff, however, were excellent. They all spoke several languages and had the best service personas, rivalling those in 5 star hotels around the world. Stay at the Ibis if you want to stay in a central part of Seoul that is close to shopping, food, and business district.

Great location and fantastic service”

The hotel has excellent location, right in the downtown of Seoul. The staff are very helpfull and nice,

I couldn't have chosen better hotel for my stay in Seoul. The hotel has excellent location, right in the heart of Myeong-dong, and it was easy to reach the most interesting places from there. There's a subway station, shopping mall, cinema and bank nearby the hotel. Airport bus 6015 stops just in front of the hotel. Service is just fantastic, and everybody was so nice and charming. They were very helpfull and gave me a lot of tip regarding what to do and where to go. If I ever go back to Seoul I will definitely choose to stay at Ibis! The only thing I wasn't so fond of was the musical background in the restaurant / bar and lobby area (jazz all the time). I also recomend to choose buffe in stead of ordinary menu when dining at Ibis. They also have the best coffee in town!

Best Choice.”

A subway station and An airport Limosine Bus stop locate right in front of the Building. 20 meters walk to Myeong Dong.Free sauna and hot bath for hotel's guests. Washing Machine available.
My room smelled not so good.

Hotel Ibis Myeong Dong is a best choice for those who travel alone just like me.Especially if you have only a day or two for shopping. It locate in the center of business Area just like Siam Center of Thailand. There are many shops and stores for you to enjoy shopping. The prices is not bad somewhat the prices is cheaper than market area. There always have a special sale promotion. There are many different prices for clothing. It is depending on your budget. I bought a nice skirt only W 5,900. That is about 180 Thai bath. The beauty product is also cheap especially for local brand such as Etude House, Missha, The Face Shop etc. Food & Restuarant is so many either Fast Food francise(Mc,Burger Kings,Star Bucks, Seven Eleven etc.)I really enjoyed my staying at Hotel Ibis Myeong Dong though I was there only one day and alone.

Ibis Myeong-dong Hotel”

accessibility. I liked the digital and heated water closet...so cool!
It was winter time when we went to Seoul and it was really cold outside the hotel, but the temp was really warm in our hotel room. It would have been better if there was an individual thermostat in each room instead of a centralized a/c. Also if you have children to share the room with, it would be a little uncomfortable because the size is just good for a couple.

Ibis hotel was really comfortable with soft pillow and bed. It even has a fitness room and a bath house that is exclusive to the hotel guests. The check in counter was at the 19th floor,(quite unusual) but a good choice because there you will have a better view of Myeong-dong. The hotel staff spoke good english and very helpful and always smiling. The hotel was close to restaurants (lots of good and not so expensive), malls (Lotte City Duty Free and Mall),and if you don't mind walking, was even just a few mins walk to namsan tower, namdaemun market and a palace.It was safe to walk even at night,Seoul was really a nice City. Limousine bus going to the airport was just in front of the hotel and from Incheon Airport,take 6015 bus(KR9,000) and it will drop you in front of the hotel. Will definitely choose this hotel when we go back to Seoul.

Fantastic location, clean and quiet room”

Convenient location, free shuttle services to Namsan, Dongdaemun and other places of interest. Airport bus stops in front of hotel

I stayed at Ibis Myeongdong with my mother for this trip. I would definitely stay here again simply for the super convenient location. It's prime location is near to places such as Dongdaemun, Itaewon, Namsan etc (taking a cab to these places costs less than 10SGD per trip). Just right opposite the hotel is Lotte shopping mall and turn to the left you will find yourself at Myeongdong shopping paradise. Walk further up from the hotel and you will find yourself at Namdaemun as well as the huge shopping mall -Shinsegae. Getting to the hotel is simple - just proceed to the bus ticketing office and buy tickets for bus 6015 -10,000 won (approximately 11 SGD) and the bus will stop right outside Ibis hotel. When returning to airport, you can purchase the bus ticket directly from hotel on 19th floor at 10,000 won as well. You will need to wait at the bus stop which is just right outside the hotel. The room is quiet (our room is on the 18th floor) and we slept like babies throughout the night. Room service is done daily and there's a safe, ironing board and complimentary toiletries. There's coin operated laundry available if you need them. Toilet is small but I am not particular with that but if you are one whom must have a bath tub then you may want to ask before booking if there's one available. We booked the junior suite and the room size is ok, not sure on the normal room sizes though. Water dispenser is available on every floor. Check-in is on 19th floor and concerige personnel are friendly and able to converse in English. I would suggest to get high floor room. Breakfast was not included in my package and we tried their buffet breakfast at won each (approx SGD each) It was ok for us but I will recommend walk about as there are many restaurants and coffee places to have your meals Overall, I will definitely choose this hotel again for my next return trip to Seoul.
