    The staff is unbelievable! So curteous and so helpful! I've never stayed at a hotel where the staff was so wonderful. Also, the rooms were just enough, not over the top, but great. This hotel is such a good value for the money. It is right in the middle of Seoul, so it made getting anywhere so easy. The subway station is so close to the hotel, and there are plenty of good places to eat and shop.

    the hotel is centrally located and an airport bus stops directly outside

    Location is great for foreign tourists. This hotel is located at a very central location in downtown Seoul. It is within walking distance of the stations of two main subway lines which will enable you to travel anyplace in Seoul easily. Streets around the hotel are always crowded until almost midnight. Many places to eat, shop for essentials, shop for groceries etc. If the weather allows, hotel is at reasonable walking distance to nice museums (palaces etc.), shopping malls, landmarks, essentially most of the must see places in Seoul. If the weather is rainy you can still take the subway or take a taxi to these places. There are numerous money exchange places close by. Many places accept credit cards. If I were you I would not hesitate to stay at this Hotel if the price fits to your budget (it is not a cheap option).

    Very convenient - near subway station and is served by Airport Limousine bus. Free internet and free wifi - a plus point.

    Very centralize location, handy public transport, friendly and helpful staff. Good shuttle bus service.

    Cleanliness of room needs improvement.

    Exceptional

    First, the location of this hotel is really good. All of the staff can understand English and speak fluent English. Sometimes I could not find the location of a shop and asked the information counter, they could provide very clear explanation. There is a board next to the information counter, telling the tourist about the weather in English. This also helps a lot. Rooms are clean. As it locates at the best location in Myeong-dong, the rooms are very small. You can't expect a junior suite is really a suite at all. Anyway, I need to say it was a very present stay.

    Excellent location!

    Airport bus 6015 stop right in front of the hotel, lotte dep store right across the street, tons of restaurants and stores around!

    Very good location for who wants to explore Seoul city. Small but cozy and comfortable rooms and basic amenities. I will be staying at IBIS any time I go to the Seoul for business purpose.

    I should only complain about wardrobe which is extremely small for long time visitor. They should change their concept to breakfast included. There are not many European style breakfast places so having breakfast at the hotel is good but expensive.

    Geared to Japanese clientelle, the hotel has a neat small spa at the top floor. Very nice!

    the service was excellent. the front desk and the staff on the first floor were friendly and efficient.The location was perfect.

    the hotel room was small and dirty considering its price.

    Fabulous

    Prime location. Very convenient for metro, taxi and airport bus. Buffet breakfast is rich.

    Only one coffee machine can be use at breakfast and thus the queue is long. No sofa inside room. Only a bench and a chair for sitting which are not comfortable at all.

    Traffic conditions survived very well. I think it was very good in the heart of the city. Also very kind to us for the sudden request. Thank you.

    The most benefit of staying this hotel is Shopping (if u like). surrounding hotel areas are shopping area. Mostly is the cosmetic shop --Etude, food skin etc.. Zara, H&M and so on. The closet metro is 5 mins walk.

    i do not like the room, the carpet looks dirty, the towel looks old. better bring your own.
