Ibis Suwon Ambassador
Ranked #3 of 53 Hotels in Suwon
Reviewed September 15, 2013

The main negative points are: small rooms, no air conditioning control, the bathroom is very small, no even simple amenities, not enough wardrobe space.
Staff is very friendly and willing to help; food quality is acceptable, for both breakfast and buffet dinner, but offer always the same choices.
The hotel is positioned in a pretty good area with a considerable amount of different restaurants, they are just 10 minutes walking in the direction of Galleria Shop Mall.
I have been in this hotel several time, but usually for short stay, mainly due to the small rooms.

Its economical, though rooms are small. The wifi is not at all good. You ll need to use the LAN cable. The staffs' try to be as nice as possible.I like the Le Perisian at the ground floor. Especially, Han Kyeol, Aree and Sun Hwa are awesome and warm.

Room Tip: Get an upgraded room or the corner room.

Ibis Ambassador is in close proximity to major offices in the area, and is one of the best hotels to choose from if you're visiting this part of South Korea on a business trip. The rooms are very clean and the food is good.
I have stayed here for close to one year and have become very comfortable with my stay. The staff is very welcoming and warm at all times. Jangmi and Romie (at the front desk) always greet me with a smile. At the bar, Rana and Sun Hwa make sure my dining is a pleasurable experience. And they go out of their way to help when needed.
Thumbs Up! Although the air conditioning could be better, this hotel is overall a very good choice for business and vacation trips alike.

A good option for business trip for people who plan visit Samsung campus in Suwon. It takes around 10 minutes to Samsung gate.
Rooms are relatively small and equiped with basic stuff. TV is small, bathroom is reasonable.
Breakfast is very good.
Dinner buffet is offered. quality and variaty are good. but price is a little high.
Note: KAL Limousine is not stopped in the hotel but in the Castle hotel - ~10 minutes from the hotel Ibis hotel by taxi.

Room Tip: "most rooms are the same"

The rooms are small, stuffy and noisy. The heavy traffic outside and anything that happens in the room next door or on the corridor can be heard, not contributing to a good rest. Airconditioning is centrally controlled and often leaves the room very hot. When it cools, it is very noisy.

With the exception of one very helpful gentleman, front desk staff speak very limited English.

The breakfast is OK, but no more than that. A la carte lunch and dinner are very expensive; food is much better and cheaper at nearby restaurants.

When we left, we needed to travel to Seoul with luggage. We confirmed with the staff that the bus would have a luggage compartment, but it turned out that we could not take the bus with luggage at all. We ended up taking a cab, which we would have done much earlier had we been given correct information.

In all, for US$ 250 per night, I would expect better. In Seoul, this gives you 4- or 5-star options.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel

Good and friendly service overall. The room is small but clean enough. The location is strategy where you can get food, shopping...most of the thing here. The hotel provide free shuttle service to certain locations which is convenient for peoples.

The hotel is good for business travelers or with group of friends. The hospitality service make me choose them next time. :-)

I recently went to Korea about 2 weeks ago for the first time due to business. I must say that the hotel itself is mostly a business hotel. Meaning small standing shower and limited room size. I arrived to the hotel early in the morning before check in, unfortunately no rooms were ready.

I must say that the front desk service was excellent. The front desk attendant, her name was Romie, recommended a 설렁탕 (ox bone/beef broth soup) restaurant nearby. Great restaurant that's open 24 hours!

I returned to the hotel and Romie informed me that she had a room ready and gave me my room key. They have a rewards program that helps you earn free nights, so I signed up for it. Might as well get points towards a free night while on travel, am I right?

I will most likely come back to this hotel again when on business or visiting Suwon.

Room Tip: Just put average for the swimming pool and room service because I did not use those.
