If you are travelling for the first time to Seoul, Korea or with family, there cannot be a better place than IBIS Seoul meyong Dong. The hotel is located in the heart of the shopping area which is connected by airport limousine. The bus from the airport - bus no 6015 stops just in front of the hotel for 10,000 won i.e 10usd. If you take an independent taxi it will cost aroung 120 USD. This also means that going will be easier as the airport bus comes in every 20 minutes. Another advantage is the market place which is just below the hotel. If you are an indian or an Arab and wish to eat Indian cuisine then there is an restaurant called saffron just below the hotel. The rooms are standard and very neat and clean. The staff members excellent and try to help you. Overall the stay was excellent. Many of the tour operators come to the hotel to pick you and drop you after the tour. Seoul Railway station is just 2 km which is not too far if you intent to walk or 2500 won by taxi. Overall I loved the place and its location. Another new feature which I noticed is the toilet seat which by pressing few buttons will make the seat warm, warm water will gush out to wash your bottom and finally there is air blown which dries your butt. Another thing for single adults is please do not bother to watch the adult movies shown on tv it cost 13,500 won but you will regret why you subscribed as the rating was double x....(I hope you understand).

We were quite pleased with our stay here. Having read other reviews on this property on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay here. I must say, this hotel is in a hot location. Lotte shopping was right across the street, which encompasses 3 whole blocks and connects underground. Lots of business people walk around during the day, sharply dressed. At night the area outside turns into an outdoor market with people selling everything from purses and wallets, clothing, and great street food. The area was very safe. The hotel is also relatively close to the subway. There's 711s and Circle K stores right downstairs

The hotel lobby itself it on another floor, forget which. You have to take the elevator up. The room was a typical hotel room per se but very comfortable. Nice big screen TV. The view of myeung-dong outside was brilliant. Lots of flashing lights and a huge LG TV. But all the lights went off early so as not to keep you up. The bathroom had a bidet and was very modern.

Be sure to visit the fitness room. It has a spectacular view of the city and lots of equipment. I highly recommend this hotel because of the value and location where comfort and safety are not
Compromised.

I went to Seoul on July 1 to 7. Ibis had very friendly good English speaking people. We did have a non smoking room because I cant have smoke in my lungs and they gave us a smokey non clean room. Then our next room was very smelly carpet, but too tired to come back up. this hotel is for solo who wake up early and come back late. I think it is way too overpriced. And they ALWAYS VACUME WITH SOUND BLOWING YOUR EARS!!!!!!! THEY LITERALY WAISTE ELECTRICITY!!!! NOTHING GOT CLEAN IT JUST LOOK DULLER!!!! And there breakfast is the same everyday all cand. I was shocked to see a 92 thumbs up. But i thank ibis for the first time i use high tech toilet :3. i could say more bad, but i will say good staff.

Room Tip: don't get top room. Elevators FOREVER TO GET YOU close on their own lol. ONLY TWO WORK. sorry in...

I stayed at the Ibis Myeongdong for 3 nights. The positives: Excellent location-you can walk to the night market next door, the Lotte department store, City Hall, Deoksugung Palace, NANTA Theatre, plenty of restaurants and shops, and a subway station nearby. The airport bus stops right in front of the hotel which was a big plus for me. The hotel and rooms were nice. Staff was very friendly and gave me directions to Camp Kim in Seoul (my DMZ tour started here) in Korean so that the taxi driver could find it easily which he did.

The negatives: Check-in was many floors up so a bit of an inconvenience and they wouldn’t let me check in early so I had to do my sightseeing right after a redeye flight from Cambodia and without a shower. Breakfast buffet was very expensive and was my first and last meal there. Rooms were a little small but I’m sure this is normal in Seoul. Bathroom was small and reminded me of a cruise ship bathroom.

Overall, this is a nice hotel in a great location. Because Seoul is such a large city, you should book a hotel based on location so it really depends on where you're going to spend most of your time. If you’re going to be in the Myeongdong area, this hotel would be a good choice but do your homework.
