The hotel is ideally located and fairly well priced. The staff are super efficient and very knowledgeable. Perfect hotel to combine business (free broadband) & leisure (hotbath, gym, shopping close by). I use this hotel quite often (2-3 times a year) and do recommend it strongly. Besides the KAL bus which drops/picks up up from the Lotte Hotel (100m) away,...

We had a wonderful stay at Ibis Myeong-dong in June. The place was immaculate and the staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were a bit cramped but expected in the price range and hotel rating. Maximum guest per room is 2 adults and maybe a kid. Room had wifi, electronic safe, mini fridge, and a LAN connection. Although we didn't...

This was my second stay in three years at this particular location. The hotel maintains it's place as the best central downtown choice for a hotel. I still love the setup. Reception on the top floor, rooms underneath with key card access. With the convenience of on-floor ameniteis this is more like staying in a serviced apartment than a hotel....

This hotel is a typical Ibis standard. I paid around 160000 won for a night, which was a bit on the expensive side for the room I was given. I arrived at 6pm tp be told that all of the non-smoking rooms were gone, even though this was the type of room I'd reserved. The room itself was a bit...

Located in Myeongdong, it's a no frill hotel. Rooms are on the smaller side, but good for the night rest. We've stayed here 3 times. There is a good indian restaurant located just outside of the hotel. And if you like foot reflexology, there is one just next to the hotel and it's affordable.

I am happy with this hotel. I stayed there for 3 nights. Though the room and bathroom was small, it was well maintained. It was clean and orderly.

Trip Advisor steered us to this place, located in what I later found out from a Korean acquaintance is an area (Myeong-dong) that is very popular with Japanese tourists. It is walking distance to the two most important palaces in Seoul, which you reach by first going along the newly renovated riverfront. Myeong-dong at night is charming, full of good...

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.
