Good morning from Seoul! After a great few days in Seoul last week I thought I would continue my stay here at Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong Dong. Since I had such an amazing time in the last hotel at Ibis Styles I thought I would try out the other Ibis hotel in Myeong Dong.
The location of the Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong Dong hotel is still quite central in Myeong Dong and the best thing is how convenient it is to travel to and from the airport to the hotel. The 6015 bus literally drops you right in front of the steps of the Ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeong Dong hotel and the hotel is also conveniently next to a subway station. It is not only convenient in terms of transportation, it is literally situated in the middle of both the markets and streets of Myeong Dong as well as the high end luxe malls which are only a short walk across the road. Other great features include the fact that the best rate foreign currency exchange is located right around the corner of your hotel (in front of Zara), it is convenient for night time market shopping (I recommend checking out the street vendors for some amazing affordable street snacks as well as some cute fashion finds).
The reception of the hotel is located in the top floor of level 19 and has a pretty neat view of Myeong Dong. It also has a restaurant, gym facilities and a public bath within the top floor. The staff are also well trained in English and are so helpful when it comes to assisting with directions or with giving directions to your cab driver.
I was lucky enough to be staying in their Junior suite with a king bed which I found to be quite spacious. The room itself boasts 28 square metres, features free wi-fi, a tumbler, fireplace and separate seating area. I felt truly spoilt with the amount of room and space this suite allowed me to relax in.
I would definitely recommend you to try out their public bath facilities if you have the time. It’s a great place to debrief on your day’s worth of shopping and if you can, try to go early in the morning or in the afternoon where it is less busy.
When visiting and staying in Myeong Dong don’t forget to check out my favourite store LINE FRIENDS. If you have stayed here before let me know about your stay and experiences, if you haven’t please let me know your thoughts on my review.
