Travellers from Europe might know the Ibis chain as typical low- cost hotels, offering cheap accommodation for a satisfying standard. This hotel, though, is far above average compared to all other Ibis hotels I have been to in Europe and beyond.
I stayed for only 2 nights in April 2012 on a tourist purpose. Location is probably not the best, however there is a subway line (Bujeon stop) just only a few steps from the entrance which offers good connections to other parts of Busan. It takes about 30-45 min. to get to the beaches of harbour district. Nevertheless, there is nothing special to see and do in the hotel’s vicinity except for the open- air market.
Check- in and check- out was fast and efficient. Staff were frienly and polite and had a good knowledge of the English language. The hotel building itself is high rise (18 floors or so) and seemed to be very new. Reception and restaurant are both located on the top floor what is quite uncommon for a Ibis property. There are some computers available for public use but they also offer free internet access in the rooms.
I was assigned a room on a higher floor with a decent view over Lotte apartment blocks. It’s possible to open the window (what I highly appreciate) however there is some street noise. The room itself was clean and quite comfortable, the bathroom was typical Ibis style (very small with shower only). Lighting is brilliant for a budget hotel and there was a LCD TV in my room what is not even the case in some upmarket hotels.
All in all, I would not hesitate to stay again at the Ibis Ambassador. Also the city of Busan was a huge surprise: quite unknown in Europe but very vibrant with some great modern architecture and marvellous city beaches.
