Hello from the busy streets of Seoul! I’m currently in the city of Myeong Dong in Korea and wanted to share with you my stay at Ibis Styles Myeong Dong. This is a cute boutique hotel that’s a part of the Accor Hotels brand. It’s my 5th time in Seoul but my first time staying at Ibis Styles.
Living in Ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Myeong Dong is incredibly convenient as it is located only 2 short minutes away from Myeong Dong station. Getting here is also rather easy as you can take the 6015 bus from Incheon Airport and it drops you very close to the hotel. The ride is around just over an hour long.
Not only is this boutique hotel conveniently located in the heart of Myeong Dong, the hotel also boasts a private bath and a spacious rooftop restaurant. The view from the breakfast lounge is amazing and there is quite a variety of different food to choose from their breakfast lounge. If it’s your first time visiting Seoul I would highly recommend staying nearby Myeong Dong as there are a lot of shops and street vendors in this area as well as nearby markets such as Namdaemun markets which is only a short distance away from Myeong Dong.
The last two days here have been so relaxing because the hotel has its own bath, sauna and gym. You also get free wi-fi here! It’s convenient for mornings right before going shopping at Myeong Dong. The shops generally open at 10am so there’s plenty of time for you to take a dip in the bath and enjoy breakfast with a view before heading out for the day. The streets of Myeong Dong are also filled with streetstyle markets that sell food, clothing, accessories and more. These street vendors sell some amazing items and generally start opening shop at 4 or 5pm and finish at around 10 or 10.30pm.
Where have you stayed when visiting Seoul? Have you ever stayed in Ibis Styles? I would love to hear about your experiences!
