Stayed for 2 nights in a twin standard room, 17th floor. The view of the skyline and Mt. Namsan was interesting. The staff was super friendly, very helpful and spoke English very well. The beds were firm but comfortable and the pillows, duvet covered comforter were nice and of good quality so felt smooth. The rooms are yes, small, but more than adequate. We had two large suitcases which we were able to leave open. The bathroom was small, but they are efficient and provided a good hot shower with good water pressure. The toilet was high tech with many features!

I needed to buy a cable for my camera and the front desk took lots of time with me to find a store location, calling for me and giving me a map and print out with location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the location was great. The big
Lotte department store is really right across the street and a pedestrian area just a few yards away...very interesting at night.

I recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for 1 week in a Junior Suite. We were so happy with our choice of hotel and room. The location is unbelievable for access to shops, the subway, tourists spots and markets. We walked everywhere. The room (17th floor) had a wonderful panaromic view, through a massive window, of Seoul Tower and Seoul streets. We loved our room for the comfort, views, the space and our comfy, king sized bed. The airport shuttle has a stop outside this hotel making it so so handy. We didn't eat in the hotel because the great food choices outside are incredible and cheap.

Room Tip: Book early for great discounts.

Dear Mr. kevinbreen01,

Warm greetings from Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong-dong!
I would like to thanking you for taking the time to write a review of Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong-dong on trip advisor. We are most concerned with the satisfaction of our guests and your feedback is of great value to us.

As you wrote in review, Myeong-dong area is indeed vibrant which is part of what attracts many of our guests. Especially, as you mentioned, our location is very helpful to the traveler because it is very near to tourist attractions like palaces, temples and shopping area. Also it is very near to the Seoul Metro stations (Euljiro il-ga) and has Airport Limousine bus stop in front of hotel.

In addition, I'm so glad that you loved the room which has a nice view. If you visit our hotel again, we will try to assign the same room.

Again, thank you for staying with us recently and we would like to welcoming you in the future!

Best Regards,

Jae-Kyung Lee

The Hotel location is Ok and strategic. but kind of weird that the reception Desk is at the very top floor. Due to high occupancy, they kind of forget to include the complimentary drink at my room as usual

The location is very nice, it locate a the beginning of myeongdong street. Place for shopping and food. Very close to train station.
The hotel has free shuttle service for few tourist attraction points(which I only found out on the last day of my trip, so little down side on the service which no one tell me about this free shuttle service).
The hotel is clean.
Same as other ibis hotel. It is always a nice choice for a budget hotel.

I normally dont like to stay in shopping areas as the noise and also the crowds. But Ibis hotel caught me by surprise. Since I am travelling with a friend and our flight arrived SEOUL in early morning. We took the airport bus straight to the hotel.. very smooth traffic all along. As soon as we arrived, they have room for us to early check-in but with a early check-in charge which only cost us a little. Therefore, we immediately agreed and got into our room right away. Again, requested high floor which is noise free. The room is quite spacious for two people but the bathroom was a bit compact especially the shower area. Apart from that, the room is perfectly fine and easy to access to the shopping areas and also LOTTE department store is right across the street.

Highly recommend this hotel to those who are crazy shoppers!

Room Tip: High floor as on friday night you can hear people screaming and laughing from streets
