“Great location!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Ibis Ambassador was located right in the city centre so it's a bit far from the beach. It's a bit disappointing as there is nothing you can do in the city centre. Luckily the train station was situated just right outside of the hotel.

On a downside, the room is pretty small but that doesn't bother me much as we spent most of our time outside. I also requested for double room but we were given a twin room instead since the hotel is fully booked.

We booked this hotel because we're familiar with its brand. It was also value for money in a city like Busan.

When we arrived, we were informed that the reception is situated on the top floor. Although this is refreshing and unique, it can be confusing at times. There is an information counter on the ground floor. The staff at the information counter was very polite, helpful and friendly.

The room was small which kind of makes everything small; the bed and the shower. There was not much space to store our luggage. Having said that, we were surprised to find the shower plus toilet functioning well despite its size. The design and positioning of the shower and toilet seemed to work out well in view of the space. What we didn't like was how cold the shower room was. There was no heating. We also didn't like the fact that we had to go to another floor to fill a small bottle (provided by the hotel) from a water dispenser. It would have been more convenient if there is a water dispenser on every floor, or the hotel could have provided a bigger bottle.

What we liked most about the hotel was the coin-operated laundry and dryer machines situated at one of the floors.

The breakfast was very disappointing. For the price the hotel charged, there was not much variety and the food was not so great.

In summary, the hotel was slightly above average.

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from ibis Ambassador Busan!

Thank you for your time to share your experience with us. Your comment regarding the size of the room and temperature of our shower room has been carefully noted for our next planning.

In regards to the usage of the water dispenser, we apologize for your inconvenience as it seems like the information was not delivered correctly. We actually do have a water dispenser on each floor, so you don't need to go to another floor to get water.

We are sorry to hear the breakfast was disappointing. I'll speak to the concerned department about your comment on the breakfast and make sure not to disappoint our guests in the future.

Our entire team would like to thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon to better serve you.

Best Regards,

Tommy Yoo

The hotel was near to Bujeon market so there were plus and minus points. It was crowded but quite an experience to see and buy something in the market. Bujeon-Dong subway station was the nearest one. However, you can walk through underground shopping mall to Seomyeon station (10 minutes) which was a bigger station that can connect you to Haeundae Beach, Centum City and even to Gimhae Airport (transfer at Sasang station to an automated light rail train). But, off course if you want to skip the walk, you can take the subway from Bujeon-Dong to those places through Seomyeon. If you have big luggage, try to find the available lifts. Note: They have lifts to platform and lift to exit the station. However, not all stations in Busan has lifts. Nothing much to see around the hotel beside the market. The room was clean and nice. The service was excellent. It was quite a pleasant stay in this hotel.

Comfortable and clean bed. Nice warm room in December. Adequate room facilities. Locates next to the metro station, convenient to get to any places in Busan. Only from Busan airport, by metro, need to change 2 times with big luggages is a bit inconvenience.

Great service, clean and basic room. The hotel was close to station, which made it convenient to get to. The room was spacious, but would have been nice if the bathroom and especially the shower be a bit bigger. I had mixed feelings about the reception being on the top floor compared to traditional hotels. Kept pressing the wrong floor when wanting to get to the reception. Free wifi in your room was awesome!

Dear Valued Guest,

Greetings from ibis Ambassador Busan!

Thank you for your time to share your experience with us.
Your comment regarding the size of the bathroom and the shower booth is carefully noted for our future planning. As our lobby is located on the top floor to catch the best view of the city, it is different from other hotels and it may confuse our guests. Sorry for any inconvenience caused from that.

We thank you again for staying with us and wish to serve you again in the nearest future!
