Profile: Myeongdong

Profile: Myeongdong

Myeongdong is a vibrant shopping district situated southwest of the City Hall in Jung. It’s one of the most visited areas in Seoul, and is a great spot to shop for upmarket brands or catch a fashion show in the spring or summer. This is a place where people come to see and be seen, and it’s a great spot to people-watch over some ox-bone soup or oyster pancakes.

The Gothic Myeongdong Cathedral is a stunning building that dates from 1894, and provides a tranquil place for reflection, while the bustling Namdaemun Market is the largest traditional market in Seoul.

8.4.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The front desk staff were quick to assist when needed. It was central heating during winter and we told thwm we found it very hot and stuffy. They changed us to a room where the windows could be opened. They also sent up a cooler fan. Hotel has coin laundry which is super convenient! Hotel is also right next to Myeongdong street. The airport shuttle bus stop is also smack in the front of the hotel. Very ideal location!

    The area shuttle bus services had terminated. But this service is still listed under the hotel facilities. Therefore, i am disappointed when i realised that after i checked in.

    Good location but room too small for two person. Friendly staff who can speak good English. Situated near the Myeondong food street and shopping area.

    Love the location. It is just right beside the main myeongdong food street and the airport bus stops right in front of the hotel. Subway is also about a minute walk from it. The only downside is that the bathroom is small. If you are of a bigger size, may feel uncomfortable using the bathroom. Overall the location compensates for the small bathroom.

    The location is excellent - near subway, shopping and the airport bus stop right in front of the hotel. The housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel breakfast is decent however would be nice if they will change some of the items daily. We have been eating almost the same food for 6 days !

    Satisfactory stay at ibis ambassador myeongdong

    The location is great, in between 2 subway stations. It is nearer to Euljiro1-ga which has a lift to the subway entrance. Great for those with strollers. The junior suite is spacious and you can request for a king-sized bed. Food variety on the 19th floor restaurant is limited. Better to eat along the Myeongdong street. They will not change towels and clean your room unless you request for it. It was promptly done once we left the hotel for our day activities. Overall, we are satisfied with this hotel.

    One of fave hotels when in Seoul

    Unbeatable location. Hotel does show signs of wear n tear (eg towels are slightly frayed), and room can be snug if 2 pax. But good service and a decent comfortable stay.
