The POSITIVES: The staff is very helpful, and many speak English, which was good since my husband and I are from the US & don't speak Korean (we tried & failed-lol). The location is close to the old parts of Insadong that are so fun to walk around and shop in, as well as some neat castles and parks. The... More

Central but not fantastic, staff polite and helpful but english not great. Got there 10am but didn't get a room until 2pm. Clean and tidy, just lacking Intimacy Very central and near underground, but beware little English spoken locally and very expensive

We were rather disappointed on the hotel. Firstly, the bed was simply too soft. My back ached a lot after the the first night. Secondly, the room was not very clean, especially the bathroom. Considering the money we paid, I reckon there must be something better at the same price. The only thing we appreciated was that the location was... More

Dear hereist, Thank you for choosing ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong while you were in Seoul. However I'm very sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the hotel. We are using specially designed matress and the latex bed topper for good night sleep. Most of customers are really fond of this latex topper but it's too soft for you... More

Stayed with a friend for the week end, my third time in this hotel. Location is great, near anguk station and a palace, lovely walk to nearby areas with hanoks (traditional Korean houses). Rooms are great, small but functional, slightly noisy though, the walls are too thin so you will hear conversations and doors banging which is not so nice.... More

Some of the reviews say this place is small but for a solo traveller like me it's more than enough space. There is even a coin operated washing machine and dryer. All up including detergent (you can bring some for a front loader from your home if you don't want to use theirs (costs 500won) is 2,500won which is a... More

Hotel is beside the Insadong and very close to the Bukchon Hanok Village. From Incheon International Airport, it takes only 1 hour to the Anguk station and 10 minutes to the hotel. There are many restaurants near the hotel. There is a map guide inside the TV program to show you how to get the scenic spots. Very good concierge... More

I selected this hotel based on good location, nearby to Airport Limosine Stop and MRT Stop. This is only a decent low-cost budget hotel closeby to the palace and MRT. The MRT stop for Jongno -3 (Sam)-ga is 500m away by walking through a narrow lane. Anguk Stataion is further away, being a 15 min walk. The Airport Limousine bus... More

This ibis is cheaper than the Myeongdong one, locates in few mins walk from subway station. Many restaurants nearby. Historical tourist points are in walking distance. Reception speaks good English. When we arrived at 8am, the room is not ready for checkin. They provide us a key to public bath at basement to enjoy shower and bath for a good... More

Our Korean business associate recommended Ibis Insadong. Location is very close to 3 palaces and the presidential house. Very good place for those keen in visiting the historic places of interest (Gyeongbuk, changduk palaces) and arts museum etc. Rooms are slightly smallish but very clean and comfortable. It's about 10 mins walk to the Angguk subway and from there you... More

Located a short walk from the metro (Jong-go 3 ga), in the historic area of Seoul. There's a mini mart across the road and a good bar (Brew 3.14) down the road. A few eating places, but nothing too exciting. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, standard ibis. Bed ok. Free wifi is a big winner, and a good... More
