“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

The hotel has a good location. The airport limousine bus stop is in front of the hotel, and near to myeong dong street which has many of stores and food. You can choose to go to subway green line or blue line also. Accros the hotel you can find lotte department store and also lotte duty free.

Perfect location for a quick trip to Seoul. Located right in the heart of a young shopping district, the Ibis puts you quickly into the action and just a few minutes' train ride from any attraction in the city.
The hotel is clean, somewhat spacious, has a nice bathroom and a shower, a horrible view of the building next door, lots of tv channels to skim thru, a cellphone that you can borrow while you're out and about and a few restaurants and a bar.
Anything you need is here. This is a great spot to stay for 1st or 2nd timers to Seoul. If you travel to Seoul a lot, I'm sure you know somewhere more off the beaten path. But this place is great.
One cool thing, the hotel is one of the stops on the bus route straight from the airport, that made it really easy.

The location of Ibis Myeongdong is excellent - right in the heart of the shopping district. There is a airport limousine bus stop right outside the hotel which offers convenience to guests. The double room we got was spacious, new and very clean. Despite being in the shopping area, it is very quiet all day when we were inside the hotel. We did not get the breakfast package with our room but it was fine since the hotel is surrounded by restaurants, convenience stores and bakeries.

A decent Ibis-hotel. We had a suite, which was confortable and decent-sized, but the normal rooms are tiny, OK for one night but not for a week. The best thing about the hotel is its location, on the edge of Myeon-dong, with an airport bus stopping right in front of it, and all the street food carts, cafes, and restaurants within walking distance. Most of the tourist atractions are within walking distance as well.
We also appreciated the coin laundry in the hotel, much cheaper and convenient then getting the laundry washed by the hotel.
We did not eat at the hotel, but drank our morning coffe at the cafe located on the ground floor.

Room Tip: Splurge for a suite if you're staying more then a couple of nighs, otherwise you'd be very c...

We stayed at the Ibis for four night in May 2013. The main reason for choosing this hotel was the easy access to various sites including the shopping district. The Lotte department store is right across the street. The main palaces are within walking distance from the hotel. I enjoy walking so it didn't bother me to walk about 30 minutes to either palace (e.g., Changdeokgung or Gyeongbokgung). Bus #6015 from Incheon Int. Airport will leave you in front of the hotel. The fee is 10,000 Korean Won. The room was average but comfortable. The buffet breakfast was excellent. Please keep in mind that the reception of the hotel is on the 19th floor. Many things to do in the surrounding area and many small Korean restaurants in the neighborhood. If you are a coffee drinker, you will enjoy the many coffee shops in the area. We would stay here again.
