Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong
Travel Blogs from Seoul
Aujourd'hui, nous avons foulé le sol de la République Populaire Démocratique de Corée, communément appelée Corée du Nord.
Un moment historique. La ligne de démarcation entre les deux Corées est l’un des rares endroits sur la planète où subsiste un climat de guerre froide.
Une journée cool en …
... someone else needed it.
In response to a public demand on Wednesday February 13 2008, the Labour Government of Australia led by Kevin Rudd apologised to the Aborigines and Stolen Generations for their ‘profound grief, suffering and loss’ in a statement made to the Aboriginal Australians. ‘Our nation, Australia has reached such a time and that is why the Parliament is today here assembles’, he said. ‘To deal with ...
... leave forever, or stay forever. Hence its name. We also stopped at a monument in memory of two US soldiers killed in 1976. A poplar tree was growing too high and blocking the line of sight between two UN observation posts. A work detail of US soldiers was set out to chop the tree down. The party was attacked by North Korean soldiers wielding axes - axes! Such high-tech! - and two GIs were killed. Camp Bonifas is named after Captain Arthur Bonifas, one of the two killed. Then ...
... The advice in the listings is superb. The writers all universally have empathy towards the cultures they are writing about. Information is generally accurate, except for prices and opening hours which change without notice and rarely by much. But for crying out loud, will Lonely Planet please hire some decent cartographers?
I eventually made it to the Suwon Fortress, after sunset. It was worth it. It's like a miniature Great Wall of China and deserves ...
... larger, with a beautiful garden, and had a slightly higher entry price-3000won (£1.75)-and bigger crowds to boot. It was another national holiday, celebrating literacy and the simplified Korean alphabet, which added to the number of people out. The buildings were similar, and the throne room again had carved dragons in the ceiling, which were my highlight. I sat outside for a while, polishing off a pile of food from the handy Home Plus-or Tesco, if you ...

Service was great - facilities were pretty good - room was worn but I was shocked at the price!

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong
I got a good deal of 112,000 won including breakfast. We flew in late on 25 Jan and stayed until 5 February. Very helpful. Stayed in room 1825 which has a good view of Seoul Tower.
Still looking for a real nice korean hotel
Okay, but impersonal. We still look for the nice real korean boutique hotel
Great hotel, great location
I was surprised to find such a hotel for the price I paid. It is a true 4 star hotel and maybe it should get 5 stars considering what I paid. I had the room 1835, which had a nice view, although I know they have better views.
- Great location, next to restaurants, Mall
- 5 minutes walking from the Shuttle drop point (Actually the hotel offre a service shuttle that drives you to an alternate pick up point for the Airport Shuttle
- Free Internet
- Free adapters at the Desk
- Great Price. I paid 119$ USD per night, including Room Tx
- No Iron. But maybe this is the norm in Korea?
All in all, highly recommend this hotel.
The Ibis Myeong-Dong is a great place to stay in Seoul. I was there for three nights, and enjoyed the comfortable rooms and excellent location.
Love the View and the Style
The hotel was a new just recently opened hotel. It was so clean with such a city style. The check in is on the 19th floor along with the cafe, buffet, bar, gym, sauna etc...Especially during the night, the view is really nice. It's not a 5 star hotel, but it was a really high service providing hotel with new facilities and great service manners. There are a lot of Japanese tourists but the hotel was quiet compared to the hotels I've been to
Good value, great location
Just come back from a 4 night stay at Ibis Myeungdong. This is a new conversion of the top 10 floors of a building directly opposite the Lotte department store, so very central. I don't generally have high expectations of Ibis's but this one was exceptional. Keen, friendly staff with good English (not something you take for granted in Korea). Good breakfasts, a small gym, free broadband (they give you an ethernet cable), clean, comfortable rooms and overall very good value. My firm has just booked it for a small conference.
A small hotel accessed from a small alley. Very
friendly staff. Very good rates for Seoul. Lots of
amenities: free laundry, free internet, free breakfast,
free safe, small fridge, water cooler. Fairly good
size room for two with two chairs and small table.
Korean style room sleeps four on the floor.
Conveniently located, only a short walking distance
to the subway and about 15 minutes walking distance
from the Myeong-dong and Namdaemum shopping
area. Limited spoken english but email's are fine.
Many japanese tourists.
