we were on a over night flight to Seoul and arrived at the hotel around 9am. We were asked to pay for half a day room rate inorder to check in earlier which we did and the front desk agent was not too friendly. I expected to pay some money but not half day rate for just a few hours.
Small rooms with minimal amenity as with other Ibis/Style hotels but centrally located and very short walking distance to Insadong. Staffs were very nice especially the gentlemen at the door/parking. Breakfast could use some major upgrade. Very basic or even less. Many good/cheap eats near the hotel so I would recommend not to include breakfast if you have to pay for it. Overall, good budget hotel with good location and nice staffs.
I find the location of the hotel is ideal for a tourist. The people who work in the hotel are excellent, and friendly. The food is also very good. In fact these points motivated me to choose the same hotel for my stay in future also.
The hotel location is very convenient to travel from one place to another as it is near the subway and bus stop. There are tons of traditional food, intriguing stores and tourist attractions around this area.
If you need a base from which to explore this vibrant and extraordinary city then the Ibis Ambassador Insadong is the perfect location. Initially we chose this hotel for its location close to our son’s flat in Seoul where he works. We were not disappointed. Our room on the top floor, close to the pleasant roof garden, met all our needs for a two week stay. There was adequate space and all the facilities we needed. Plus a view over the rooftops of a city that was just begging to be explored. Within walking distance is the tourist area of Insadong and right across the street from the hotel is the fascinating warren of shops,eateries, galleries and “you name it” district of ikseon-dong. We explored other areas of Seoul by walking to them or by using the comprehensive subway system. Taxis are also cheap and easy to use. At no point did we feel in the least uncomfortable in a city that is safe no matter what time of the day or night. The hotel staff were courteous and at all times helpful most especially when our plans had to change. We loved our stay in Seoul which was facilitated by the Ambassador hotel and its staff. If we visit again it will most certainly be our choice of place to stay. Thank you Ibis.
Manager Park is always available and front desk staffs are great led by Ashley Park. Love location with so many good places for snack, foods and cafe! Recommend to anyone stays Nothern Seoul! Easy to move around with near by subways.
Best service, Best price Minimal difficult for access the main subway (near Orange & Purple line) (far from blue and green) Hot bath is very interested point in this hotel In this time i have only one thing not impressive (my room have many stuff of the old guest
I stayed at the hotel 10 nights. It was the first time I stayed at the hotel. PROS (1) I arrived at the hotel around 11 pm. Arriving at the hotel, I felt at home, thanks to Mr David Lee, Reception Manager's hospitality. He is excellent - in terms of efficiency, successfully building positive images towards the hotel, information - how to get meeting venues + the workable solution for any issues, while staying at the hotel. He was extremely helpful. I would like to express my deep appreciation to the hotel management for excellent staff training. (2) Hotel Location: 5 minutes on foot from exit 4, 5 or 6 of subway Line (1, 3 and 5 Jong-ro 3 ga subway station) / 5 - 7 minutes on foot from Anguk subway station (Line number 3) (3) Free shuttle bus - 6 times a day (9 am, 10 am, 11 am, 12 30 pm, 2 30 pm and 4 pm - Sending only) "Why sending only?" It was understandable. The traffic condition of Seoul is unpredictable. I used 3 times the shuttle bus services - Myung dong, Anguk station, and Seoul Station. The Shuttle Bus route comprises Chandeok Palace - Myungeong - Namdaemoon Market - Seoul Station. (4) Free Hot Bath - Lower Ground floor) towels, toner and lotion. (5) Wifi - free, fast and stable. Very convenient for work with computers + smart phones (6) Shower - not big, but clean + water pressure strong (7) Cleaners - doing good jobs. (8) Breakfast - variety of selection, good price (less than USD 10, KRW 10,000 - hotel guest price, 10% discount applied) (9) Lobby restaurant opens only breakfast/ lunch. Dinner - Only Buffet at Roof Top (10) Convenience Store is located just next door. (11) Hotel rooms - facial tissue (12) Free Fitness Centre (13) Ice machine - Top floor (14) Coin Washing Machine, Iron board/ Iron (15) The hotel is surrounded by interesting areas - 3 minutes on foot to Insadong, 4 minutes on foot to Changdeok Palace etc. (16) Guests can open the window - hotel rooms. The hotel is located in near mountain and the air condition is good. Cons (1) Hotel Room Size - small but big enough (2) not providing free toothbrush/ toothpaste/ shampoo+rinse Guest can buy a toothbrush/ paste + shampoo/ rinse at the reception (KRW 1,000 each) Hotel rooms - only small soap/ shower gel/ enough number of towels (3) No free water
This is still my choice of stay for its location. Its my 3rd time stay at this hotel and I think they should consider the following - 1) they should provide toothbrush and bath soap and 2) they should consider decreasing their aircond temperature from 26 degrees to 22 degrees as the room is humid and stuffy when you step into the room after coming back from a hot outing day (it was hot sunny day at 26 degrees when we were there) and 3) It is an international hotel in Korea, you need to provide computer facilities with choice of travellers language. I was trying to check on my travel itineraries using the hotel desktop and it was all in Korean language.....how can anyone can do anything there? Other than these, it is a great hotel to stay.
I stayed in IBIS Ambassador Insadong for 4 days. When I first entered the room, it smelled of damp. It was ok once I turned on AC and room temperature went low though. IBIS Insadong doesn't provide amenity to protect environment. I didn't know it before I checked in. Considering the price, the room is spacious and clean. The place is very convenient to go to major palaces, other travelers' spots in the center of Seoul.
Good central location with many interesting places within walking distance. Front desk staff took time to explain how to get to parts of the city and readily helped with all kinds of information. Rooms are standard IBIS format as expected, a bit small but just about do the job. Breakfast a bit disappointing as it's not particularly cheap and there is virtually no fruit on offer, which is surprising given that ACCOR Hotels is an international chain.
Very helpful staff, specially Vivian! Perfect location, to explore the old and modern Seoul. Beautiful view, modern WC with bidet! Boiler with different teas, A/C, international TV Channels, market in front, souvenirs shops close.
Hotel rooms though small are clean and organized with lots of sockets for gadget/phone charging Personnel from fromt desk to house keeping are courteous and helpful. They are willing to help from packing, to getting a taxi, helpful in helping with directions, etc. Special mention to Joan Jeong and Chris for their exceptional customer service.
Thank you so much for the early check in, we treasure it the most after the midnight flight to Seoul. The concierge staffs were polite and prompt. The size of the family room is decent for 3 persons. Complimentary drink vouchers were given cause it's my birthday during check in, however it would be a nice gesture if we don't have to email and ask for it. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Ibis Insadong.
I checked in at Ibis - Insadong on a Friday night and was expecting the hotel lobby to be packed with our customers. There were only a handful of other people checking in, and the staff at the front desk were able to check me in with ease. I was afraid there would be a language barrier because I only speak English, but they were easy to communicate with and got me to my room quickly. I returned to ask the front desk for suggestions on where to eat and ended up talking with a woman named Rachel. She was very professional and gave me a handful of suggestions right down the street. Overall I had a great experience at Ibis, and would return if ever in Seoul again.
It's a short walk from Anguk Bus Station where we got off from our bus ride from Incheon Airport. The hotel is clean, 'tho our room is quite small as we have triple sharing bed, with hot water but no more bathroom amenities like toothbrush, shower cap, etc We have coffee and tea which are replenished everyday. The front desk staff is friendly and courteous, especially Vivian :)
I brought my friend from Philippine & its the first time for him came to Korea. Ibis Insadong one of the best Accor hotel network in Seoul where give him good impression cause close to these hotel got Insadong market where offer Korea culture, original Korea food with Korean traditional style home. Its also these hotel close to subway station, Anguk Station, & its easy for us to going around Seoul. Its good to know that Ibis Insadong will be in y priority list if willing to know Korea closer.
I stayed for 3 nights in Ibis Insadong with my wife and we had such a good stay with Ibis. First is about it's good location, It is located near the subway station, just 3-5 minutes walk to Jong-no 3 ga subway station, with the subway ride for 2-3 stations we can reach several tourist spot such as Myeong Dong, Gong Byeok Gung Palace, Dong Dae Mun, etc. And with 10 minutes walking we can reach the Insadong road where you can find some unique souvenirs for our family and friends. Second is about their rooftop garden which is very beautiful at night with the all lightning and also you can see Seoul in light from the rooftop. Third is about the friendly staff that always ready to help if we have any question. Lastly they also sells good umbrella in case you don't bring any umbrella with you and with a cheap price also, KRW 5k for the small one and KRW 10k for the big one. I think it also can become a good souvenir (LOL). I bought the big one when the snow was pouring down in Seoul but then i lost it in my flight back, so shame.
Everyone at the hotel was very helpful, keeping our luggage when we checked out for a weekend trip. The room is small but so nicely designed that we did not feel cramped. We love the convenience to Insadong and the subway. The neighborhood is quaint and rapidly changing with lovely restaurants and tea rooms.
ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong is an unexpected find, a hidden gem in Seoul. It's walking distance to the shopping district of Insa-dong and has amenities such as the money changer and 24-hour convenience store across the hotel that were unexpected delights. Nice and courteous staff, comfy beds and awesome pillows. A value for money hotel. We had a great stay.
