I am 20 years old and this is my first time to be really traveling alone, let alone to a foreign country. My first night at Ibis, all of the receptionists and personnel were not only kind, but also willing to help me in whatever questions I had. Soya and Lydia were the receptionists who I first encountered and they were nothing but spectacular at helping me to get accommodated with Seoul. I have had nothing but a wonderful time, great recommendations, and the hotel itself is of excellent quality... Read more

I stay in ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong 3 night in end Jan. It is a very convenience hotel in Myeongdong. Near airport bus stop, metro, and main street. The most important is near exchange money shop, I can exchange money every morning. About the price, ibis is more expensive than other hostel or small hotel, but Accor always has promotion, I bid the room in a cheaper price than others, so why not ibis? I trust the famous brand.

Have halal restaurant near hotel. I took a direct bus from the airport to the hotel. Very easy. Hope they will be more halal restaurant. The negative side is they have adult channel in the room. The staff is friendly, have free wifi and its fast. Have computer and printer to do job.

The Ibis Ambassador is a wonderful hotel. It is right in the middle of the action of Myeongdong and the airport bus no 6015 stops right outside. Rooms are well appointed and quiet which is important as this is a noisy city. Staff are very friendly and helpful- they also have a free shuttle bus to take you to the major sites. I highly recommend this hotel

we traveled as a family. the location is just perferc - behind the main street in MayondDong. major attractions are just a short train ride. close to the train. in the middle of everything but quiet and cozy. the room is not as big and as not as fancy but worth the price. breakfast is nice but very basic. coffee machine was the life savior!

It is a basic hotel, reasonably priced , nothing fancy but the staff deserves credit as they make an effort to make sure you have a comfortable stay. The night markets, shopping, food etc is just at the door step. The comfortable limousine shuttle bus to the hotel is nice and easy and the hotel has a train station 20 meters from the entrance. Would stay there again for a night if Myeongdong is my destination!

Ibis Ambassador Seoul has a very good location. In terms of location, It is right smack at the heart of Myeongdong and very near the Main Street and restaurant establishments. The airport limousine 6015 stops right in front of it so its very convenient. It is also walking distant to the Myeongdong Cathedral (3min) and Palace (15min). Several bars and restaurants are located nearby. As for the hotel facilities, the room was quiet small and looks rundown. The carpet looks a bit old & stained while... Read more

We had stay in this hotel last year, and everything is nice. Now, we are staying from June 19 until 25. Wrong decision.. I think they have a problem with the central AC. It is really hot and can reach 27C in the room during the night. Luckily, we insist that they need to do something or we are checking out of the hotels.. the front desk argued that it is a centralised AC and they cannot do anything about it..

We had a 1 week stay in a king room that was spacious and clean. It was our first time in Seoul, so we were looking for a centrally located hotel. The location was great - short walk from food and shopping, but also quiet at night. Short walking distance to subway stations to get to various sights in Seoul. The only negatives: the centrally controlled airconditioner, which was a little bit too warm for us at the end of March, even though the corridors were quite a reasonable temperature. We rang...

Overall it was a pleasant stay. I always stay in IBIS Ambassador Myeongdong whenever I am in Seoul. Convenient to get to from the airport and right around the corner from Myeongdong main street. The nearest subway is Euljiro (il) ga - green line. Since I was travelling alone, I value security and safety. I had no worries when I was staying at the hotel and overall the concierge and the reception were very welcoming.

This is my second time staying at Ibis Ambassador Myeongdong. This hotel is easily access via Airport Limousine (the bus stop is directly in front of the hotel). A stone throw away are all the eateries, shops and malls. It may not have the most comfortable bed, but if your trip is to shop and eat, this is the right hotel. Note: if you are a light sleeper and are travelling with someone, having 2 single beds will be more comfortable.

Great location and friendly staffs. Most of sightseeing places are located within 30 mins. We found that taking bus is easier than the subway (less stairs too). Plug converter or transformer is available from the front desk. There is also a spa on the top floor. The room is a little dated and the carpet can use some updates or cleaning. The hotel is very busy. Be prepared to hear noises from other guests at nights.
