« Most unpleasant nights sleep ever in a hotel »

Do not visit South Korea between November and April as all hotel rooms i the country are over heated. Accor group hotels are always extremely hot and heated to close to 30 degrees. If you do stay in the Ibis Insadong you will struggle to sleep even with the window open on a cold night. If you do need to travel to Korea I would recommend the Best Western Incheon as it has individual AC units so you can run the AC to overcome the excessive hotel heating. Further there was confusion over the booking and the staff had great difficulty determining who was actually a registered guest in the hotel. Due to the excessive heat I got less than 2 hours sleep so I would certainly advise against staying at Accor hotels until they address the overheating issue. A simple 5 degree adjustment down to 20 or 21 degrees would mean an enormous energy saving and a pleasant stay for all guests. There is nothing wrong in having to wear a light pullover in your hotel room in the winter.

« Comfort and quiet »

Comfortable and quiet . Which is what you need after a long flight. Staff helpful. Most understood English. Best location for most attractions. Can walk everywhere. From Palaces to Shrines to shopping and food. Perhaps a bigger room for 3 people.

« [Seoul] Have a great experience in Ibis »

I visited ibis insadong at 07/16. The location is behind the ik-sun dong, one of most famous korean traditional house-town. If you go through ik-sun dong, you can go chungyecheon (korean park near water : good to walk) About parking, It need sometime to park the car because parking have to do by machine. (Tower parking) it needs about 3~5min. If you get in ibis hotel, you can meet kind manager with smile. They can help you check-in and check-out. About room condition,it is very clean, and in 9 floor, there is massage machine. oh, I recommend you need to prepare your own tooth paste and brush. I just stay 1 day in weekend, and it is great experience.

« Room is clean. Location is great. »

The location is very good, located near subway 2 stations (Jongno 3-ga & Anguk), only a short walk to Insadong street where there are many shops and restaurants. There are convenient stores nearby the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room is clean and very comfortable. Also the gym and coin laundry section are available at the basement floor, really great!

« Excellent Ibis Seoul »

Ibis Seoul is excellent, especially when it comes to breakfast, lunch buffets and staffs with Asian manners courtesies. Breakfast and Lunch includes coconut ice cream, kimchi, and tasteful beef cooked well. Staffs are Koreans, and they speak good English. Thanks Ibis Seoul for better buffets than couple other Ibis I have went so far.

« great location »

Great location and convenient to get around from the hotel. Ammenities such as gym and laundry machines were well-appreciated. BUT the air-conditioning in the hotel room was a huge let-down due poor thermostat control. We also found the mattress and pillows were extremely soft.

« great location »

I wanted a hotel in an area that would allow me to walk to most cultural sites and local markets or have easy access to subways, so I chose Insadong. Ibis Ambassador was perfectly located on a side street so traffic noise was eliminated. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet meant I could get going in the morning without having to look for a place to eat. Hot bath downstairs was great for relaxing after a day of walking. I would return to this hotel again. Good value, especially if you get a promotional deal online.

« Unorganized »

The staff member at the front advised that a shuttle bus is in operation. I and my wife went down to the front 10 minutes befre the scheduled departure time. I doublechecked if the shuttle bus will come on time. The staff member advised that the bus will definitely come but may be a little bit late due to traffic jam. I and my wife waited for further 30 minutes. When the shuttle bus arrived the driver advised that the shuttle service scheduled on 5:30PM was cancelled and the next service would be at 7PM. My valuable time in Seoul on the last night of my stay in Korea was so wasted and no one apologized.

Zett_HB, 매니저 at Ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong, responded to this review

And, we deeply appreciate you for taking the time to provide us a helpful feedback which assists ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong greatly in monitoring our services and facilities. Your comment has been brought to my attention immediately, and I was disappointed to learn of the inconveniences you have encountered.
