My husband and I stayed at Ibis Ambassador Hotel Myeongdong for 4 days last December 2019.

Our room at Ibis Ambassador Hotel was quite small, but is well-designed so that it was comfortable. The bathroom was also quite small, but ergonomically- and efficiently-designed.

Ibis Ambassador Hotel’s location is excellent! The airport shuttle stops right outside the hotel, so it is not a problem if you have a big luggage filled with winter clothes. It is right beside the subway station too.

The hotel is centrally located to shopping and eating options. Ibis Ambassador Hotel is a street away from the famous Myeongdong Night Market, known for its street food (we sampled grilled lobster and scallops, sausage, Korean fried chicken, tornado potato, glazed strawberries, mochi strawberries, Takoyaki, and so much more). This same Night Market Street has rows upon rows of skin care shops (like Nature Republic, Innisfree, Laniege, The Face Shop and Pretty Skin). Nearby, there are also clothes shops like Uniqlo and Spao (the Korean version of Uniqlo).

Right across the street from Ibis Ambassador Hotel is the high-end Lotte Department Store. A short walk away is another high-end department store Shinsegae. (Shinsegae has a food court with a good selection of food choices.)

The hotel is a comfortable 5-minute walk to Myeongdong Cathedral, where my husband and I attended Sunday Mass.

(Apologies for the delay in writing out this review. After a busy 2019, we are now all staying at home due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Our prayers for everyone’s good health, safety and well-being, including the hotel staff and employees. We look forward to the time when we can all safely travel again and enjoy the hospitality of good hotels like this one.)

This is our 2nd stay after 7 years. There are now many other new hotels options around Myeongdong and the price are all very competitives. Being an Accor+ member, we decided to stick with this property. Stayed 5 nights and was quite disappointed mainly because:-
1) No complimentary upgrade for long stay despite the low occupancy due to uprising Covid 19 situation in S Korea
2) No complimentary sweets/cakes for anniversary celebration
3) Need to collect extra towels and toiletries from Reception as Housekeeping delivers only pillows. Subsequently we just made do with 2 towels for 3 pax.
4) Accor+ dining benefit is not eligible at this property
5) Bring your own shampoo and bath gel as the ones provided are very poor quality.
6) There is rarely someone at the Concierge counter on level 1 so need anything, have to go to level 19 reception.

Despite the above, the property is clean. The standard room with 1 small queen bed is sufficient for us as 2 adults and a 5 yr old. Did not dare to use the common spa bath due to the current situation hence not sure if it is still good. We will not stay here again if we return to Seoul.

Myeongdong is a convenient place to stay if your visit is short, however, other than cosmetics, food and shopping are generally more expensive there. And the place is lack of character.
