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 Seoul Tower and Namsan Park or 5min walk to the cable car to take you up.
The rooms are very clean and has all the ammenities; air con, flat screen tv, mini fridge and bathroom. The staff were friendly and they provide drinking water and hot water. The room I had was at the back so I could open the window for fresh air and had no problems with noise.
The main complain is probably that its located on a gradient and if its the 1st trip up to the guesthouse it does seem a rather long and steep climb especially with luggage. But dont let that scare you, after a couple of time it will seem normal, its not a streanous torturous climb (unlike climbing up the mountain to seoul tower).
The main thing for me when deciding this guesthouse was its location and it lived up to it. very convenient for everything, food, shopping and transportation. Infact I could get around to almost all the sites in Seoul using the subway for won1000.More
