“Mid-Winter stay in an ideal location”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Access is excellent from the subway, and the airport limo bus arrives at the doorstep!
This hotel is adjacent to the Myeong-dong shopping district, ideal location for a shopping trip.

Highlights include the heated spa on the top floor, gym, easy check out, concierge service which tells you when the limo bus arrives.

Special mention to Kevin downstairs at the concierge who is friendly and very helpful with suggesting times and places to visit, and even ran out to stop the limo bus for us early in the morning.

was lucky to book a good promo rate from the hotel direct website. stayed 4 nights and was given a corner room on the 12th floor. room size is adequate for 2 paxs and we both have two big suitcases and until our last day with 4 additional boxes lying on the floor, we could still move around the room quite easily. clean room and comfortable bed except that the pillows are too soft for me.

check-in is on the 19th floor, same level as the restaurant, fitness centre and sauna bath. hotel provides free strong wifi in all rooms and hot/cold water and ice dispenser on every floor. there is a laundry room on the 10th floor with 2 sets of coin-operated washing and dryer machine (1 dryer was down though) at only 1000won per machine. washing powder dispenser (500won per packet) and coins exchange machine provided.

location wise is excellent in the heart of Myeongdong, opposite Lotte Department Store and about 3 mins walk to the nearest Euljiro 1(il)-ga station (exit 6). airport limousine bus #6015 to Incheon airport stops right in front of the hotel, approx. 90 mins journey every 20 mins interval (10,000 won). note last bus leaves the hotel at 8.20pm for those departing on midnight flights.

as our departure flight was at midnight, we asked the receptionist after we checked out the hotel if we could return back to use the sauna bath to shower before we leave for the airport and she happily allowed. overall, the hotel has a wonderful English speaking service team from the reception to the concierge on the 1st floor, all providing excellent service with a genuine smile on their face. kudos to ibis Myeongdong for an enjoyable stay!

Stayed here for my honeymoon in Korea and have absolutely no regrets. The hotel has very polite and friendly staff! I would like to compliment Benjamin, who had been extremely helpful to assist me with communicating and resolving an issue I had too. The best selling point is the location of the hotel. Airport limo stops right outside, Blue and Green line are minutes away of walking, shopping and restaurants are conveniently available just outside the hotel. Free Wifi was a huge plus, and the internet speed was great too. Would definitely return when I make a trip back to Korea.

One of the more ambitious Ibis hotels, with a full-scale restaurant. Very central , very helpful staff with good English, good choice of Korean and international food, and remarkably inexpensive at about (UK) £80/night including breakfast. Free wifi in the room works smoothly, airconditioning quiet and effective. The rooms are smaller than luxury hotels but ample for single travellers, likewise the shower (no bath). Really a very good bargain.

very good location, faced LOTTE department store, nearby subway station and Myeongdong. Room is not very big but very clean and tidy. Every day we have nice sleep. Next time we will choose IBIS again.
