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.)
