Recommended friendly hotel, great staff
I stayed at this hotel for 4 days whilst i arranged my final departure from South Korea after completion of work. The hotel was recommended to me by my family who had stayed a few years earlier. Was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel and found staff had an exceptional attitude and could not do enough to help me. Great places to eat and drink (....and i do like a few craft beers myself). Would highly recommend Ibis for it's excellent rates, friendliness and location within Seoul for access to tourist destination. When i pass through again, i shall certainly book this hotel.
