Ibis Ambassador is (as the helpful lobby receptionist always say, is it Eric?), just 3 minutes away whether you're going to Gyeongbokjung Palace or to Seoul Tower, by cab. So as adventurous as we were, we just walked from Seoul Tower back to the hotel. There we were able to pass through Namdaemun street to do some shopping. To top...

The breakfast is plenty and varied with delicious options for western and Korean tastes. However, that is just the beginning, the list of little things that this hotel has thought...

This was my second time stayed at this hotel. Located in the heart of Myeongdong area. Heaven for cosmetics and skin care. Easy access to and from the airport. The bus stop is in front of the hotel. There're two subway station nearby: Euljiro 1 ga (5 minutes walk) and Myeongdong (10 minutes walk).

Neighborhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
