“Very good value for money in the gang am neighborhood”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

I stay there for business and find it very convenient. Special mention to wifi high speed and easy connection. This is otherwise the expected standards of IBIS hotels. No surprise, but good location and good value for money.

Dear Frankois2012

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.
We all our staff are happy to hear that your stay was convenient.

As you mentioned, complimentary High speed WiFi internet is a standard service for all Ibis hotels in the world.
However, Ibis Ambassador Seoul Gangnam is providing more services than standard such as bathroom amenities, minibar items, Sauna with reasonble price etc.

We are trying to listen what guests really need and what guests do not like. We will keep on listening from our guests valuable comments and try to improve our service and enhance guests' satisfaction.

Thank you very much for staying with us and wish your next visit is much more convenient than the previous one.

Best regards,

Min-sook Cho

This hotel is perfectly located to COEX convention center - it is a 3 star hotel. So the pics in the hotel description might misslead to a higher class. Service is good but with fully booked hotel the breakfast area is too small. Waiting line for a seat, seating card do not work. Empty bowls, not functioning coffee machine makes breakfast challenging.
Rooms small, with small bathroom (plastic inbuild bathroom).
As mentioned ok - friendly service - great distance to the congress but rooms small.

Room Tip: elevator is quiet and so it does not depend where the room is located - all are ok

Dear ALYX_KFB

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.

I would like to apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced at the breakfast area. I will share your comment with restaurant manager and try to figure out how to handle the guests when all the seats are occupied. Currently we open the bar area for breakfast when crowded but we wil look for better solution so all the guests can satisfy.

Thank you again for your staying with us and wish your next visit is much better than the previous one.

Best Regards,

It was my first trip to Seoul and stayed here for 2 nights before I continue to Busan trip. The room was ok for single traveller, great free wifi, tv with many channels, everything in room was working fine and clean e.g. air con, toilet etc. I was lucky they allowed me to check- in early when I arrived ard 10am, given me opportunity to refresh before explore Seoul. Check in & out is fast. ( I did use the express check- out). The hotel staff do speaks English. Convenient to get food & snacks - there is a Paris Baguette bakery around the corner. As many have mentioned, it took 10-15 mins walk to subway/metro and ~ 30/45 mins to town centre like myeong dong.
Check out for good deals from Accor hotels booking.

Dear Travel:)hippo

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.
It is our great pleasure to hear that your stay was contentable.

As we know that those guests who came early in the morning to check in travelled the whole night and very tired, if we have rooms available, we provide early check in. And you were lucky that on that day morning, room was available.

We will continue to provide the service what our sincere guests really want and try to find more.

Thank you very much for staying with us wish your next Busan trip was also enjoyable.

Very good accessibility to get to COEX, metro stations,and even to ICN airport.
Room is compact but very tidy and quiet, and the restaurant provides quality menues with reasonable price.
Staffs were very informative and friendly to my various requests.
Plus, the food street starting from the entrance door toward Seolleung station is full of recommendable korean restaurants and cafes, and visiting them was another big fun during my stay.

In brief, Ibis was excellent choice for traveling. I will stay in this hotel for the next visit to Seoul again.

I chose Ibis Ambassador Gangnam as it is located within walking distance to my office at Teheran- ro. It's really a business hotel , reasonable cost and within walking distance to COEX and the business district of Gangnam. The metro station is about a quick 10 minute walk away. It takes a while though to get to the touristy parts of Seoul (most attractions are about 40 mins away by subway). The hotel has not been refurbished so expect pretty basic rooms (they are clean and sufficient though with purified drinking water available on each floor which is pretty handy) Amenities are not provided so make sure you bring your own. Plenty of food outlets in the vicinity. The hotel provides a shuttle bus to the airport bus terminal which is a cost effective way of travelling to the hotel from Incheon.
