We stayed at IB ville for 4 nights in mid-Oct 2010. We agree with all the nice things about this place mentioned by other travelers. However, we didn’t like the following:-
(a) lugging our luggage up to the 2nd floor as there is no elevator. It was harder on our last day as our luggage weighed much more than the lst day.
(b) agree that the two people in charge of this guest house are friendly. We saw them for the first day and during breakfast time on the second day (they provide free toast and coffee) but after that, they were no where to be found when we needed their help. We called them from the phone at the pantry/computer area but no one answered the call.
(c) At night, we left the window opened slightly instead of turning on the air-con. We could not sleep well as their blankets were not thick enough to keep us warm. We asked for extra blankets but we were told to turn on the heater instead.
(d) This guesthouse is rather difficult to locate as it is situated in a small road off the main road.
(e) It’s also rather inconvenient to get to the guesthouse from the airport bus drop-off point at Hotel Sejong. From here, you will need to lug your luggage towards the Myeongdong Station and get down a flight of stairs at this station and up another flight of stairs to the other side of the road. So far, we did not see any escalator or elevator in the Korean subways.
