Everything was in good condition, room was clean and spacious and the location was perfect
Emma, us2 night trip
ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong, Seoul
Location is good as there are various attractions nearby, lots of restaurants around too. Check in was fast and there was absolutely no problem in communication as some of the front desk staffs speak good English. Rooms are small but it was all expected. However the washroom is unexpectedly small and there is no countertop nor shelves nor hooks to lay/hang your clothing! We booked a room for 4 nights with breakfast included. Of the approx 20 food items offered in the buffet, only 1 item got changed daily. The other 19 items remained exactly the same every day. This is unbelievable. The hotel has a free shuttle bus service to the Seoul station. This is nice as it saves a lot of hazzle walking to the subway station & transferring between subway lines. Unfortunately the frequency is 2 hours apart most of the day which is not very convenient. You cannot reserve a seat as they do not have such a system. The service is offered on a first come first serve basis, which means you have to come early and wait in the lobby. But even if you are the 1st one to come, this doesn't guarantee you a seat. The shuttle bus is just a 7 seater. There is also no registration system to record who comes 1st, 2nd...last. If there are more than 7 people waiting and it comes time to board, you could become the 8th if you are slow to reach the car. A very simple registration system could solve the problem but it wasn't implemented. Therefore can only give it a two star.

I like ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong !!
I like the location, which is central to old town of Seoul and near to public transportation such as metro, etc.

Daria, us4 night trip
ibis Ambassador Seoul Insadong, Seoul
Very disappointed.
Bathroom was almost similar to mobile bathroom. Door would open without a card, so I had to locked it manually. No amenities. Towel was located near to toilet, thus hinting at low hygiene. Would not stay twice.
