Have always made hotels my choice whenever I travelled but chose IB ville for my first visit to Seoul after seeing the rave reviews on tripadvisor. True enough, I wasn’t disappointed at all!

The main pros of IB Ville would be its cost and location. It is within a short 5-10min walk to Myeong Dong subway station and Myeong Dong shopping area. So if your main priority is location, convenience and shopping this place has it all. It is also at the bottom of Namsan and you can walk up the mountain to...

When you exit at Exit B from the Myeongdong Station, on you right (across the main road) is the Myeongdong shopping area and on the left, you will see Pacific Hotel.

“If you plan to buy a lot, try choose the second floor, coz there are no elevators so you will need to carry ur luggage up and DOWN... Book early, as they are quite full most times.”
