The Ibis Myeong-Dong is well placed in the tourist area of Myeong Dong and there are a number of attractions within an easy walking distance of the hotel. There are also a large number of eating places in the immediate vicinity. The 6015 airport 'limousine' (actually a bus) will drop you right outside the hotel - and you pick up...

Stayed in a Junior Suite for 3 nights as a stopover in Seoul, the Ibis was excellent value and could not be in a better location (got a good deal with Expedia). The room was very spacious (more than I expected) and to be honest was the most comfortable hotel room we stayed in during our 5 week trip which...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel when we were in Seoul. The location is excellent. It locates in Myeong-dong shopping area, which is a paradise for shopping lovers.

Found this hotel at the last minute as the hotel we initially booked and paid for was horrible. The location of this hotel is right at the shopping area of Myeong-dong which was full of shopping and foods. There is also a 24/7 convenient store a few meters from it. The front desk and infomation person are all very helpful...

1) Airport bus #6015 stop in front of the hotel, very easy access from the airport . 2) This hotel is located close to subway station "Euljiro 1-ga" and fairly close to "Myeong- Dong". So you can get around easy around the city. 3) It's located in shopping area "Myeong-Dong"and close enough to walk over to Namdaemun Market, so if...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a long weekend in Seoul, where we stayed at the Ibis Hotel in Myeong-Dong. The location was great. We were about equal distance from two major subway lines, which took us almost anywhere we needed to go in the city. The Myeong-Dong area on it's own though, was pretty cool with great restuarants...

Very nice hotel! It has all of the qualities of a deluxe hotel but at a very reasonable price. Clean lobby and rooms, excellent staff, and decent on-site restaurant. I would consider this place first the next time I visit.

We were instructed by a Korean-American friend that Ibis Myeong-dong is THE place to stay in Seoul. Having been there for six days during this first trip to Korea, we confirm our friend's advise. What a great location, great hotel, and wonderful value. We opted for a room-only fare (without breakfast), because right behind the hotel are plenty of delicious...

The hotel has a good location downtown, right on the airport busroute and close to the green-line subway. We rented a junior suite with a supposed view.

When I booked this hotel, I expected it is a simple business hotel with small room, yet its size is actually much smaller than what I expected, but it is functionable.

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.
