Recent guest reviews

Location, location, location! We were close to everything. The view was great. Staff was very helpful and friendly. If I went back I would definitely use this same hotel.

Clogged Toilet on first flush. Fount desk dispatch a maintenance staff only, no cleaner. Fount desk said that no room services at p.m., so I had to be a cleaner to clean the toilet on first night. And worry about will it clog again on coming 3 nights.

The staff was friendly and helpful, I need to send parcel to oversee and the post office was closed, they helped me to pack and send . Save me a lot of trouble. Great location and the hot spring is a plus to the hotel too.

This was our 3rd stay at this hotel, and we had a good experience. Having found the standard rooms a bit cramped for us in the past, we chose a junior suite with a kingsize bed and found it comfortable. The bathroom is quite small and built for efficient use of space, but we wish there was more counter space and another hook to hang things. We enjoyed the breakfasts in the 19th floor cafe, and the service was good. As we were on a long journey, we needed help with our luggage as well as late checkout and the operations manager helped us with both. We would stay here again.

Airport buses from both Incheon and Gimpo airports pick up and drop off at the front of hotel. Easy for people who don't speak Korean or English. Lots of shopping and food nearby.

The hotel is ideally located. The bus, subway, taxi stops right in front of the hotel. Restaurants and shopping is right next door.

It was only one night, but i stayed in a good hotel in Seoul.

Hotel located across from Lotte Dept,just walking to Underground,exploring shopping and excellent food amenities at Lotte Department. airport Bus from Incheon Intl Airport stops in front of the hotel, what a relief. reakfast Buffet is also great with good selection. Cannot ask anything more with this great rate. what is missing a bell boy to help with luggages in & out of hotel.

The location of this hotel doesn't get any better, and it was way cheaper than anything else around. The room was clean and comfortable enough, but it's not a luxury hotel. For the price, I would definitely recommend it.

great location - lots of shopping and eating places. will definitely return. will recommend to friends. Felt safe and staff is helpful. room is small but efficient. need to bring soap next time - not liking the all in one kind of soap. great to have free wifi and coffee bar in the room with frig is great.

Convenient to shopping and eating places catching the bus to/from the airport. would stay there again. Will bring my own soap to wash and shampoo - not sure what is there - a basic liquid soap that doesn't really lather up much. like the refrig in the room and the hot pot with coffee is a real nice touch! The restaurant downstairs is very good - Korean Food. The location felt safe and clean.

liked the location, close to lots of eating places! lots to see - great shopping areas near by.

Outstanding location. Very friendly staff. Helpful suggestions. Free internet/wi/fi.Staff multi- lingual. Reservations staff spoke English very well.Very cheerful. Great location. Easy location. Airport bus stops in front. Lotte Department store across street. Perfect place for shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions. Will always stay here while in Seoul. No regrets. Highly recommended.

The hotel was in a perfect location, within walking distance to all shopping, and a lot of tourist attractions. Airport bus from hotel to Incheon was only $10 pp, and pick up was right in front of the hotel. The rooms were very clean, and beds were comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend the Ibis.

The hotel is easily reached from the airport by the 6015 bus. It's in a shopping district, with good restaurants steps away. I found the room well appointed (with internet, good selection of TV channels in several languages, and a squeaky clean bathroom.) I will stay there again next time I'm in Seoul.

Airport bus stops right at the front door to the hotel! The hotel is right in the middle of all the action. Wonderful shopping at your doorsteps. The Lotte Hotel across the street has a terrific food court. We ate there several times on this trip and was not dissapointed. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was tiny but overall, cannot beat the location!!! We had a wonderful stay and we will gladly return to this gem of a hotel!

friendly staff, but no wash towel, you need to bring your own, I thought they forgot to give me one but they do not supply it, which is really strange - how was I to know that I needed to bring my own wash cloth?? they did supply the bath mat, hand towel and bath towel. great location for shopping and taxi fares was cheap.

This was my first trip outside of the United States for simple recreation after more than ten years and it was a pleasant one. My stay at the Ibis hotel in Myeong-Dong Seoul, South Korea was great too. The staff was really nice and professional. A great deal of them knew a good amount of english and were more than willing to help me with some korean. They also were helpful answereing my questions about finding certian places to dine and also find places to shop for specific items. The room was comfy for an individual traveler like myself. I was pleased that it had a safe to store items and a small fridge. It also was quite clean and well kept considering how long the hotel has been there. If there is to be a gripe about the room, I think the walls are a bit thin. I could hear my neighbors talking across their room so I suggest talking at a regular conversational voice level. The location is great, the airpot bus drops you off right in front of the hotel for 10,000 won at the time of my trip. A subway entrance is not far, just down the street not even a block away. Which is great since the subway grants you access to all major tourist locations around Seoul. There are plenty of shopping centers nearby and places to eat are all around the hotel. Eateries around the hotel range from cheap to expensive including local cuisine, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and western style establishments. I would gladly stay at this establishment again.

I've only been to Seoul once, so I can't compare, but over the week we were there, this proved to be a great choice. Myeong-dong is an incredibly dense shopping district full of tiny shops and ringed by world-class department stores. Hundreds of places to shop and eat from street meat to $$$$. Note: Myeong-dong is not relaxing - it's total stimulation most hours of the day. Don't confuse this Ibis with others in the city - Myeong-dong is better located. Walking distance to tons of attractions, near 3 subway lines, and a central stop for dozens of bus lines (including the Airport Bus, which is super convenient). The hotel itsself is fine. If you're staying in downtown Seoul, you'll only be sleeping there, and for that, it's fine. Small rooms, but with a mini desk, and small but well designed bathroom. Oddly, no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby, but there was an ethernet cord for a laptop in the rooms. The staff spoke plenty of English. The hotel bar/restaurant was overpriced with mediocre food - the only reason to go is of you want a western cocktail or wine which can be difficult to find elsewhere. Averaged out to a little more than 100 a night because they vary the prices by day of the week. Prices were great for staying right in THE center of one of the worlds great cities.

This hotel is located in a shopping district, Myeong Dong. Across the street from this hotel is the Lotte Dept store where you can literally do your shopping until it closes at 8:30 then shop at the street markets outside. This hotel is cleaned, has amenities like a water pot boiler, hairdryer and even one of those Japanese style toilet seat. My room had no bathtub but a shower stall with glass doors. The room is quite small compared to the rooms in the US hotels. The tv has a wide variety of different language channels. The American channel features news that is a day old. Just to note that the subways in Seoul are mostly stairs so my suggestions is if you have large luggage to take the airport limosine bus #6015 to the hotel. The bus stops right in front of this hotel and is very convenient for 10,000 won which is like almost $10 US. The hotel lobby is on the 19th Floor and also free wifi is located there. The rooms in this hotel has no wifi but an ethernet connection. Just to note that they have free shuttle to touristy places nearby like the palaces, tower, etc. but you have to find your way back. Also, I booked a DMZ tour at the reception and I had 3 people and we asked if we can book for the price listed for 4 people (which is like 10,000 won less) and the receptionist called and asked and we got the price we wanted. You can negotiate the tour prices. I think this hotel is conveniently located in the middle of every tourist place and with a subway nearby you can get to wherever you want without relying on tours.
