About ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong, Seoul

Clean, comfortable hotel near shopping in central Seoul

Myeongdong shopping

ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong is in Seoul's bustling Myeongdong shopping district, across the street from Lotte-Young Plaza and Lotte Department Store. Euljiro 1-ga Subway Station is a 3-minute walk, and the KAL Limousine airport shuttle stops right outside the hotel.

Markets and heritage

You can spend an afternoon browsing Seoul's largest and oldest market, Namdaemun Market, a 12-minute walk. Or if you're interested in culture, you can walk through historic Insa-dong, stop by a tea shop or art gallery, and continue to Changdeokgung Palace, a 30-minute walk.

Sauna and dining

At Le Bar, you can sip a cocktail while enjoying stunning views of downtown Seoul, or have a buffet dinner at La Table for something more casual. After a full day of sightseeing, why not have a workout at the 24-hour fitness center or enjoy a steam in the sauna?

Free WiFi, TVs

The 280 modern and clean guestrooms make relaxing easy - you can update your social media with free WiFi and kick back with cable on the TV. Or you can brew a cup of coffee and do some work at the desk - suites have a separate living area, too. Amenities also include a refrigerator.

A quiet comfy base for my visit to Seoul.
The hotel was juts right for this visit. The location was good, the facilities were very comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Joshua at the concierge desk was especially kind in directing me on how best to get around and writing some things in Korean for taxi drivers.

ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong, Seoul
Convenient and Comfortable
Value for money hotel. With so many eateries and street food surrounding the hotel, there is no need to book Room with Breakfast. Fantastic location if you are in Seoul to shop for cosmetics. Upmarket Departmental stores Lotte and Lotte Young Plaza are just across the road. The Subway statuon Eujoril1 is within a short walking distance. From this inner circle line station, one can get to any tourist site or shopping districts like Gangnam or Insadong easily. ONLY caution, if you plan to get from the airport to the hotel by taxi, make sure you give the hotel's telephone number to the driver. By keying in the number into the GPS system you will be driven to the correct Ibis Ambassador Hotel. There are many IA hotels in Seoul. We were sent to IA Insadong before getting to IA Myeongdong!
