“Clean rooms, great service, and good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

Stayed at the Ibis in Gangnam for 2 nights in June. Had the non-smoking double bed. My thoughts:

1) Really clean room! The cleanest I have seen during my 2 weeks in Japan and Korea.
2) Free internet! Can't be beat and it is high speed! Only LAN though
3) Very helpful staff but don't expect a concierge or a bellhop.
4) Free internet in the business centre
5) Good location, 10 minute walk to Samseung station in the COEX mall. COEX has great shopping. Gangnam area has lots of shops and restaurants to check out. My only gripe is that if you want to go north of the river, to Myeongdong or Dundaemoon or Hondae, it is an hour subway ride one way. If you are planning on staying south of the river, this place is amazing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

We stayed 2 nights during May and booked the room during the 50% off promotion. We could see the hotel was designed for the business traveller hence the brown interior tone throughout the room. I was however fascinated by the toilet with the attached keypad- I dubbed it the iToilet. The hotel suited us fine, it was close to the Co- Ex centre and subway and everything in the room was functioning and clean. Dongdaemum and other surrounding areas is a short ride away.

- The rooms are clean, have good levels of storage, are light and bright
- There is free internet access (that I really like. I don't need to find a internet cafe)

We stayed in the Ibis for 2 nights, we basically only slept there. Check in was each time in the middle of the night and check out early, but each time staff was very pro and friendly-I would definitively go back there for a stay in Seoul!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2009

This ibis has seen better days from some of the Ibis I have stayed in. Rooms can be dirty at times, but when I complained, it was always fixed quickly. As usual, the service is very friendly and good, and in addition, the location in the poshy Gangnam district is hard to beat at that price. Its near the Coex shopping mall, and Subway stations are nearby.
