Recent guest reviews
Stayed in two rooms 7-10 April 2018 at 15th floor (1506 and 1516). Room design is very useful, one of the fastest WiFi we had experienced. Front desk and restaurant is at 17th floor. Restaurant is surprisingly very good, extensive breakfast buffet and smart a la Carte menu for lunch and dinner. Jun at restaurant who usually work in the evening and 2 young ladies who work during breakfast were very accommodating. Receptionist who checked us in another young smart lady was incredible. We felt that we are in a top class luxury hotel (like Shangrila-La). Aircon worked very well. It’s just that rooms could have been bigger and it would be nice if there would be a bath tub in the rooms. Also a good location
This hotel is nice, clean and saved our Busan trip. It is outside a subway entrance into the underground walkway to Bujeon-Dong. There is a restaurant, C24 store, Starbucks and lounge in the building. Shower was triangle shaped and usable but small for a large person. The water pipes and neighboring noise was on the high side so if you are light sleeper or don't use ear plugs you may want to plan accordingly. There was a safe and small refrigerator with two complementary waters. There are some good notes for this location. 1) up the street from this IBIS is one of the largest markets in Busan (Bujeon Market) it mainly caters to restaurants and businesses but it is still a sight to see... I think it is almost 1 sq. mile large. 2) the main cross street down the hill from the IBIS has several bars and eating places, two chicken wing and beer places which we tried one and was very good.
We want to go to Busan station by taxi and asked the front desk to call us a taxi. After we loaded our Luggage only the hotel information staff informed us that the cab fare will be 10,000 won flat rate. We were surprised but we were in a hurry to catch KTX train. I dont think it is nice for them to inform us on the fare after we got in. They could have told us ahead of time so we can find a different cab. For tourist this is unpleasant experience. Hotel should make sure the guests get the best experience. Other than that other things in this hotel is average. Room is not that big and a bit older than usual.
We found the rooms in the Ibis more than adequate. Could be larger but everything worked well and cleanliness was excellent. The staff was outstanding. Everyone we struck went out of their way to make our stay trouble free.
I really liked this hotel. The restaurant in the last floor. The really easy access to the subway system ( just outside of the front door). The wifi was excellent and the room very large. The staff were extremely kind and helpful. Surely will come back soon. It was really near the night life of Busan and the Central Market.
As I was posted in Geoje to work with my family, I recommended my parents come and visit South Korea for a while. One weekend, we made a quick getaway to Busan and stayed at the Ibis Ambassador (note stay was actually July 2014). Whilst not the most glamorous of hotels, it is amply adequate. The rooms are not massive, but are on par for Korean standards, and the breakfast was fairly nice (I did enjoy the soft-shell crabs). It is well located, adjacent to some typical Korean markets and a Lotte mall, so there is a bit of culture and plenty of food / basic entertainment options close by.
I booked 2 deluxe double rooms and I was happy with what I got, clean and spacious. However the lighting wasn’t good enough, but considering it is ibis, you get what you pay for. Breakfast was good too, but they take a little long to refill the finished items, some of them were never refilled too. Apart from that, my stay at ibis was alright.
Room was clean and new but the lighting was too dim to my liking. Would be better if the room were brighter. Room was huge considering the standard sizes of hotel rooms in Korea. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. The welcome drink offered was however a let down as there were only coffee and tea to choose from. Location was really convenient as it is situated right next to Bujeon Station (which is connected to Seomyeon Station via an underground mall). Front desk was very helpful to call us a cab to the airport which costs only KRW20,000. Will definitely stay here again if we return to Busan =)
I left a pair of genuine pearl earrings on the table of Room 1510 on day of check-out 5/8/2017. Emailed them on 5/8/2017 on the way to another part of Korea and they replied on the same day. Received my earrings after 1.5 weeks back in Singapore! I would like to comment Susan Um (Um, Su Jin) - Revenue & Reservation Manager for following up even when I was in Singapore and had difficulty tracking the parcel. Susan remained helpful and professional !! The Housekeeping lady (lost her name) who found my earrings is FANTASTICALLY HONEST and totally saved my trip from turning disastrous!!! God bless such kind lady with a BIG heart. Ibis Ambassador Busan City Centre: Please locate this honest-to-goodness housekeeping lady and recognise her richly for bringing honour and repute to your hotel!!! She gives me hope that HONESTY exists in this world !!! Thank you!!! This hotel is near everywhere - Seomyeon underground shopping, Bujeon market, restaurants, cafes, hair salon, beauty salons, subway, etc, etc!!! Convenient to the max!!! I love Busan and will be back again next year and of course will be staying in this wonderful clean and safe hotel !!!
The hotel is conveniently located near Bugeon Railway Station (4 minutes walk) and just opposite Bugeon Metro Station. The shopping district of Seomyeon is the next Metro Station and is within walking distance through the underground shopping mall. From Busan Railway Station, you can take the Metro Line 1 (Orange) towards Nopo and Bugeon Metro Station is the 7th stop. Go towards Exit 1 and enter the underground shopping mall through the glass door and turn right and exit through Gate No. 9 of the Mall; the stairs will take you just at the entrance of the hotel. The huge and vibrant local market (fish, vegetables, spices etc) is besides the hotel and there is a 24-hour super market 'Boamart' just across the road to the right side of the hotel. The hotel reception is at 17th Floor and there is a very helpful information desk on the ground floor at the entrance of the hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, workable and consist of everything you require for your comfortable stay including a safe. Wifi works well and there is a desk top computer station at the Reception which is very handy for getting printout of your documents (free of charge). We have been staying at IBIS properties for the last several years and we do not hesitate to say that Busan hotel proved to be the best. We stayed for four nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hospitality of each staff member there. We will surely return if we visit Busan again.
