This is an excellently located high-rise hotel in the center of Myeongdong. Getting to the hotel from Incheon Airport is very easy – take the # 6015 bus which drops you off right in front of the hotel. Pick up for the airport is at the same location. The main lobby is on the 19th floor (with the restaurant and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 January 2017

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....

Hotel location was the number one plus point. Myeongdong shopping street is just one block away, Airport Bus 6015 stops right in front of the hotel and the nearest subway station Euljiro 1 Ga (Line 2) is around 3 - 5 minutes walk. Exit from exit 6 at Euljiro 1 Ga station. Myeongdong subway station is further but you can...

The hotel is comfy and affordable, it has coin operated laundry too. Strategically located beside Myeongdong Shopping Street and Euljiro 1 Station. The main drawback I experienced is the housekeeping has the tendency not to knock/ring the bell prior to entering. Sometimes it surprises me when I was in the room. Overall it was still a great stay though...

Excellent location. Easily access from/to airport by airport limousine bus which just few steps infront of the lobby. Only few steps to the famous myeongdong night market. I and my wife stayed 6nights at this hotel, felt very comfortable, and room is big enough.

Hotel staff was very accommodating and willing to work with us as non-Korean-speakers. The free shuttles to palaces and other points of interest were incredibly convenient - and hot baths every night! Great place to stay for first-timers in Seoul. Myeongdong is close to night markets, plenty of shopping, and public transit.

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.
