ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is very good, has the plus of having shuttle and massage chair. We were treated very well and were very pleased.

I have stayed multiple times and multiples times the staff has been friendly and helpful. They go the extra mile to help make your stay better. The cost is perfect for the amount you are getting maybe even more than you are playing.

I have frequently visited Seoul and IBIS Insadong became my new place for more than about 65 days from 2013-2015 since its opening. Smartly designed, quiet and practical. Only issue was the weal signal of Wi-Fi. Great breakfast and even greater lunch buffet! Will recommend to others!

It was nice and clean. There were useful amenities in the hotel. It would nicer if they were a little bit more friendlier.

This IBIS, like the others, was clean, modern, comfortable, and great value for the price. The room was a bit small, but nothing drastic. The shower was also small, but again, not drastic. The location is perfect, close to Insadong where there is lots of shopping and cultural sights to see. It's also close to the subway (Jongak 3-ga with access to 3 lines). It's also very close to Seoul station, where you can catch bullet trains to anywhere in the country, as well as the airport. I would definitely stay here again.
