Dusty room and run down

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Darlin6 24/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

My first time staying in this hotel and is also my kids first time coming to Seoul. Room very dusty, we are either sneezing or skin itchy. You can see the dust moving around. The tap is faulty and slanted to 1 side.There is no breakfast available here. If you’re an Accor member you will entitled to a free drink. Please do order from the list and don’t order with food together.(There is 10% discount no matter how many pax)Waited for quite sometime and food arrive very oily (the olive oil fill up the 1/4 of the bowl when u finish the pasta) and salty. When I receive the bill I got shocked that they charge the welcome drinks when me and my daughter did ask is it welcome drink? The lady say Yes to both of us (at different timing). They is no Cctv and no manager for the restaurant at all so whoever serve you need to rectify it. My kids very upset and angry with everything. They can’t wait to check out. My last night then they repair the tap. I left another 11 days and I choose other hotel instead. There is really a distance from subway. If you stay here for first time and you do carry luggages and want to use the lift instead of stairs u will need to walk more to reach the hotel. With kids and during winter time quite challenging. If I come with my parents I won’t choose this hotel unless I drive if not every time they need to walk from subway is really tiring. Using the subway lift you will need to cross the road and then you will walk past the stairs then continue all the way down. Is not that obvious so keep a look out. I came across 3 staff and (only check in staff) her english is better the rest need to buck up.

Excellent stay!

SereneSwee 01/03/2020 TripAdvisor review

This is our 2nd stay after 7 years. There are now many other new hotels options around Myeongdong and the price are all very competitives. Being an Accor+ member, we decided to stick with this property. Stayed 5 nights and was quite disappointed mainly because:- 1) No complimentary upgrade for long stay despite the low occupancy due to uprising Covid 19 situation in S Korea 2) No complimentary sweets/cakes for anniversary celebration 3) Need to collect extra towels and toiletries from Reception as Housekeeping delivers only pillows. Subsequently we just made do with 2 towels for 3 pax. 4) Accor+ dining benefit is not eligible at this property 5) Bring your own shampoo and bath gel as the ones provided are very poor quality. 6) There is rarely someone at the Concierge counter on level 1 so need anything, have to go to level 19 reception. Despite the above, the property is clean. The standard room with 1 small queen bed is sufficient for us as 2 adults and a 5 yr old. Did not dare to use the common spa bath due to the current situation hence not sure if it is still good. We will not stay here again if we return to Seoul. Myeongdong is a convenient place to stay if your visit is short, however, other than cosmetics, food and shopping are generally more expensive there. And the place is lack of character.

Dear Serene Swee Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the ibis Seoul Myeongdong. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; As you mentioned, regarding your anniversary request, unfortunately, at that time already stay guest who more than Gold Members used. That's the why it was difficult to provide upgrades. We wanted to celebrate your anniversary.So we provided additional welcome drink coupons. If this is not enough service for you, we will seriously discuss it and try to provide a higher level of satisfaction. and also please allow me to express my sincerest apologizeto regarding we didn't deliver to your room. Of course we have to visited your room, Housekeeping is not a 24-hour. so we asked for your understanding because it was difficult to visit depending on the situation. Finally, We will try to improve other inconvenient things by sharing it with the entire department. We can clearly see from your feedback that something went really wrong. Please note that the Front Office Manager have reviewed your comments with their teams. We would like to thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention and to reiterate our commitment to high quality standards. Please accept my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience you encountered. We do appreciate your feedback, which is most valuable to us. We hope you haven't lost the trust you've shown in our organization and you will give us an opportunity to serve you better in the future.

Room is not entirely clean up. Hotel should provide free shulte to nearby place of interest (which was provided previously). Size of the room is much smaller, and price is slightly higher, as compared to nearby hotel, e.g. Pan Pacific.

PatrickS26 Business - 04/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

This hotel has been recently refurbished. It is opposite the Lotte Dept where you can do good shopping for clothing and accessories. The basement has a good food court and supermarket. Go to Ops for bakeries. Myeongdong market is at the door with great street food, restaurant and good shops. Room is clean. Check in and check out is very efficient with polite service. The concierge on the ground floor is also very helpful and knowledgeable. Airport limousine bus 6015 at the door every 15 mins. Each way trip is Won 15k. Famous BHC Chicken and Beer is in the street behind the hotel. If you like Korean chicken ginseng or Ox bone soup there are some very good restaurants nearby in the market. Go to Kyojo for great dumplings and noodle soup. Be prepared to queue at peak times.

Dear PatrickS26 First, Thank you for choosing ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong and taking the time to share your feedback following your stay at ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong. As you mentioned that our hotel location is central of Seoul therefore tourist can approach tour spot and restaurant that can enjoy korea.

Kohbees Family - 30/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great location and hotel facilities! Pleasantly surprised that hotel has a hot bath which was great to soak in and soothe the tired muscles after shopping the whole day. Breakfast was good as well! However, we wished the staff were more knowledgeable in providing directions and information to the more popular places such as dongdaemum, namdaemum, etc. Nevertheless, they are very helpful and tried to Google the info for us.

Dear Kohbees, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback following your stay at ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong.
