Very Good location! Very close to Myeong Dong shopping area! and just opposite side of Lotte. Room is clean and the hotel staff very polite! Airport 6015 bus stop just outside the main door of the hotel.

I didn't have much expectation being an ibis property. However, having an excellent location I proceeded to book and booked their junior suite (2 rooms). Airport transfer was a breeze as the airport bus stops directly infront of the hotel. They seems to be pretty strict about the check in time (14:00hrs) as the ground floor was filled with luggages...

I stayed at Ibis Ambassador Myeong Dong for 3 days in late December. I have stayed in other Ibis hotels before so I know what I was expecting. The room was standard Ibis style.

First off, the bus 6015 from the airport stops right outside the hotel which is so convenient! It is also about 100m away from the green subway line (Euljiro 3 station) and if you walk down the main street you can reach the light blue line (Myeongdong station). The biggest plus about staying at the Ibis is definitely the location....

I had a decent stay, but my room smelled of stale cigarettes despite requesting a non-smoking room. When I told the front desk when checking out, the individual didn't seem to care, suggesting a prior occupant smoked when he shouldn't have had. While that may be true, customer service could have been better; a "tough luck" comment after giving you...

This hotel was good but a couple things stopped me from rating it higher.

It makes the room more functional. Staff were extremely friendly and...

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
