“Nice Hotel!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I think Ibis has been quite successful in running budget hotel chain and its standards remain very consistent. Basic, simple, clean and convenient.

Actually I am quite happy with its simplicity and human design of the room. The room is very small, I even need to squeeze myself into the toilet but it is cozy enough. I totally agree that budget hotel should remain a small room size with things that you can get from reasonable distance, unlike some budget hotels called themselves budget but pretend to be upscale and arrange a spacious room with no content in it.

Nothing much about this hotel but I would like to emphasis on the location. It is super convenient. Downstairs you can access to exciting cosmetic shops and metro just two minutes away!


Bed is fine and sheets look clean. You can try their jaccuzi, very strong water power! Very good to relax after a long day walk.

Staff are friendly and efficient.

I oils recommend this for budget travel.

Location is simply fantastic as it is very near to the subway and next to the main myeongdong main street. Directly opp Lotte Department store and there is even a cafe next to the hotel.

We stay in a junior suit for our family and find the room spacious enough for our luggages and even our stroller. Auntie cleaning was prompt and helpful. There is even a gym and a hot bath for guest to use. In the gym, there is a massage chair that you can sit down and relax looking at the city lightings..The best thing about this hotel that I really like is that they even provide coin laundry services with washer and even dryer.
Will definitely return back to this hotel again if I come back Seoul next time. Keep it up Ibis :)

What won our hearts during our 5 day stay at Ibis was the staff. They were really warm, welcoming and courteous. We have never seen such a dedicated group of people and, the way they did everything to make us feel at home, it was really heart-warming. The hospitality began with our arrival itself as all the formalities were completed in record time and we were shown to our room. The rooms were lovely. The décor, the lighting, the warm, soft glow of the lampshades made the room come alive for us. Also the hotel has a great location. Many tourist attractions in Seoul are located near it. The shuttle service made roaming the city easy for us and they did not charge us anything for the service. It was certainly a very good stay for both of us.

The staff was very helpful with a lot of our questions about getting around and with booking one of our tours. The hotel location is conveniently close to great shopping areas and is full of activity at night time. So much to see, buy, eat and experience just a few steps outside of the hotel.

The hotel and the room we stayed in however, is starting to have a little run down feeling. Carpets were a bit grungy, scuff marks on the walls, and I was not a fan of seeing pipes in the bathroom. The hotel definitely needs an upgrade but for the price and the location it was not a big deal.

I would consider this hotel as a budget hotel because of all the other fancier hotels in Seoul. But for the price and location I would definitely stay here again. Hopefully the rooms will get a facelift soon.

The Hotel is a bit worn, a bit tired.
The reception and restaurants are on the 19th floor, while the rooms are on floors 10-18. This means that when checking in or out you have to take first your luggage up to the reception and then back down to your room or out. As there are only two elevators there is a lot of waiting time particularly in the morning.
The rooms are OK, they are clean, but age is starting to show. The bathroom was a plastic module built in a corner of the room and quite cramped. As a sort of a compensation the hotel offers a good "hot spring" bath on the top floor with a great view. The bath is free of charge.

The Ibis in Myeongong certainly is centrally located, this is the great strengths of the Hotel, but there are many choices in this area. Ibis does not give adequate value for your money.
