Great place for family holiday
Great stay, well heated, practical basic room, nice shower and toilet. Great location too!

Very helpful staff and excellent location
Very helpful staff. I wanted to change my SIM card but I didn't have the little pin with me, friendly front-desk staff didn't hesitate to give me one. Location is excellent too, many local barbecue shops and Korean food. Room was very clean, but just the ventilation of toilet was not very good but not a big problem. Air-condition is centrally controlled, you can't turn on or off. Generally speaking a very good stay, will stay again if I have a Seoul trip in future.
WAIYAN, jp2 night business trip
Good 6.0
Okay but not ideal.
Service was good, staff was friendly and spoke English well. Bed was uncomfortable especially if you don’t have a good back. I could feel the springs underneath and it was painful. Breakfast was 9000 won and decent but it should have been free since it was more continental style food. Location was far from the bus stop, a 10 minute walk and from the tourists attractions like Insadong and the palaces. For a first trip I would not recommend this place as it was not as convenient as I would like.

Great place!
We had a great stay at Ibis for our first time in Seoul. It was in a great neighborhood, walking distance to a lot, but not in the middle of a crazy loud or hectic area. The rooms were super clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everyone was very nice, and we felt great there. Highly recommend. Especially if it is your first time in Seoul.
Jaclyn, gb3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Pros: location, personnel, toilet :) Cons: cleanliness needs to be improved (don't look under the bed, you will get scared), we had a couple of issues, one of them required us to change rooms and the other one involved the washing machinr that works with coins. Not a perfect stay, but the staff was good solving our issues.

Great value hotel with excellent location.
Excellent location with nearby subway. There’s also a lot to do around there. There’s an art and culture street, a ton of excellent eateries around there. Would definitely stay there again

Excellent stay!
Very good location, not far from metro station, also walkable to the palaces. There is also a hanok village right in front of the hotel, with plenty of cafes and eateries. Staff are very polite and welcoming too
