Easy to find and walk from the Airport Limo bus stop (Ibis Hotel). There is a Starbucks at the street level which makes it easy to spot. The Lobby/Front Desk is on a highest floor but the guards on the ground floor will direct you. The guards also provide bottled water every time you step out of the hotel. We were here on business and extended with our family. They can set up a meeting room with a projector, coffee and water beside the breakfast area and around the corner from the Front Desk. Our contact Ms. Sue made sure we had everything we needed for our meeting and was a delight to deal with throughout the reservation process and our stay.
The Myeondong location is perfect for shopping and eating with all the cosmetic brands, restaurants and street food in the area which stays open till 11pm. It is less than 5mins from the Lotte Dept store which has a huge supermarket and food court in the basement and Duty Free. You can purchase your Duty Free here and pickup at the airport before your boarding gate.
The hotel is also within 5mins of 2 different Metro stations, and there is more shopping in the underground area of the Metro. The rooms are well laid out and have enough space for luggage and inevitable shopping bags. Breakfast is also free. Wifi was never a problem.
Would definitely stay here again!
