The rooms and bathroom are clean and well equipped. If you are on a budget but want to stay somewhere good this is the place. The guesthouse is located in Myeongdong... More

Satisfied with this guesthouse. Facilities are good and sufficient. We stayed in the twin room on the 1st floor ( right beside their office). We could hear people speaking right outside. This guesthouse is walking distance to Myeondong. Down the street, there are also several eateries.. and convenience shops.. You can also walk up to namsam tower or park from... More

Thanks to Ray and family. IB Ville has a good location. Clean and near to tourist attractions. Small but cosy. Staff can understand and speak in English. Free wifi and breakfast (bread, jam, butter, coffee and tea) Reasonable price

It's my 2nd stay in IB Ville in 2 years. The overall experience was like my last stay. Very very affordable and excellent place to stay for tourists. I can attest to all the other positive reviews about IB Ville in tripadvisor. Highly recommended! =) Keep up the good work, IB Ville!

Location is not bad, a 5min walk up a gradual slope from the myeong dong station. A small place with no lift, so you have to carry your luggage up 3 floors if you are staying on the 3rd. Small room, but cosy enough. Free wifi available. I think this is good for youngsters and young couples who just need... More

I would highly recommend IB Ville. We had planned to stay here five days in July, before we went on a round-trip. After the tour we had another place, but we changed it and stayed at IB Ville when we came back. The Guesthouse has clean rooms, nice ambiance, helpful and english speaking staff. There’s free Wi-Fi (with good strength)... More

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay, this is the one! It's location 5 minutes walk from Myeongdong Station! We stayed at the hotel type, deluxe room and we were amazed by the room size! There's a microwave and a kettle provided so when you are hungry, scare not! You'll pass by a lot of restaurants to...

Have always made hotels my choice whenever I travelled but chose IB ville for my first visit to Seoul after seeing the rave reviews on tripadvisor. True enough, I wasn’t disappointed at all! From the first email encounter with them right to the end of my trip and beyond (more on that later), it was nothing less than pleasant and... More

The main pros of IB Ville would be its cost and location. It is within a short 5-10min walk to Myeong Dong subway station and Myeong Dong shopping area. So if your main priority is location, convenience and shopping this place has it all. It is also at the bottom of Namsan and you can walk up the mountain to... More

Decided on IB ville after reading the reviews here. Their response to our email enquiry was prompt. So are the subsequent correspondences. Getting there from the airport via subway was a little tricky especially the flights of stairs that you have to overcome with your heavy baggages. When u exit the subway, u have to walk abt 8 mins to... More
