The stay was generally really good, especially staff at reception were great. Two points with room for improvement: 1. The breakfast (plain, cold, not exciting) 2. Cleaning staff used informal korean language with my mother. This was upsetting and rude.

Dear Sabine S., Thank you share your meaningful comment with us. First of all, I am apologize about cleaning staff's rude attitude. We have various nationality cleaning staff and they can not speak korean not fluently. So they tried to speak korean formally but not perfected. We will try to teach polite korean to cleaning staff. I am sorry for inconvenience and please give chance to improve service to you. Thank you :) Sincerely, Park Mi Ran Front Office Manager

Great for its price. Not too fancy, kind staff, has a convenient store right across the street.

유경 고객님, 안녕하세요 가성비가 좋은 호텔~친절한 호텔~위치가 좋은 호텔로 코멘트 남겨주셔서 감사합니다. 더불어 객실 내 샤워가운과 조식메뉴에 베이컨이 있었으면 좋겠다는 개선의견도 같이 공유해주셔서 감사해요. 그러나..현재 전 세계 아코르 이비스 호텔은 환경보호 참여 호텔로서 객실 내 일회용품 및 어메니티가 비치되어 있지 않고 있습니다. 저희 또한 고객분들께 조금이라도 편한 시설을 제공해드리고 싶으나 체인호텔의 스탠다를 지켜야하는 사항도 있기에 고객님의 깊은 이해 부탁드리겠습니다. ^^;; 또한 조식메뉴에 베이컨 추가에 대한 건은 현 코로나 바이러스 상황이 해결되면 차 후 메뉴에 추가해 볼 수 있도록 하겠습니다. 앞으로도 고객님의 따뜻한 의견 부탁드리며, 항상 좋은일만 가득하시길 바라겠습니다. 감사합니다. 박미란 드림 Front Office Manager

Decent, clean, no frills hotel in Insadong. Very friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff. Had stayed here for a month two years ago and fora few days a few years before that. This time it felt a bit run down or perhaps less effort was being made. Some immediate reactions: - no more in-room bathroom items (like a toothbrush) readily available. - breakfast buffet has gone down in quality and variety. - no more parking garage available. What I noticed immediately

Dear Sven D., Thank you so much your feedback and interest our hotel. I understand what you mean and why you leave comment such as some part of delete and reduce parts. During 3 year, Cost and Payroll was huge increased in South Korea. But I and our team decide that we do not increased our rate, instead of it, we think how to change our operation. It is kind of result how we keep our price without decrease our human service. I know you like our hotel so leave comment for us and our hotel. We will keep study how to improve better and better. Please keep in touch with us and keep advise for us what we have to do. Again, Very thank you to leave your opinion for us. We always waiting your great feedback. Have a wonderful week and really really hope to meet you in sooner future. Sincerely, Hwangbo, Suk

location is center of Seoul, but neighboring area is dirty and shabby place which is awaiting renovation from metropolitan city authority. The hotel meets the budget hotel standard, but you cannot expect the more. The staff is very friendly and professional. Especially, the cleaning staff is excellent, the room and toilet is spotlessly clean. I admire the cleaning staff's efforts and the cleaned standard of room. I stayed at 7th floor. The food is so so. But restaurant is not busy and food is well refilled, so you can enjoy the breakfast comfortably.

Good location, where it near the Ikseon-dong and Insa-dong areas. Many restaurants nearby. Just like all IBIS Hotels, it provides basic needs. The room is medium size, 29" luggage cases can be open just fit the space. Since there are guests from the world, the receptionists speak English well.

Dear Mengshan T., Thank you for using our hotel first. The hotel has a good location, so many guests come. We will keep trying to be a hotel where our customers come. We wish you a healthy and happy year in 2020. Sincerely, Front Office Manager Park, Mi Ran

Great stay in this hotel. Stayed for 4 nights and staff are very nice. They accept domestic delivery so i can order online and pick up at the front desk. Room and bed are large, though the washroom is comparatively small, the place is clean. Those with luggage going to airport shall get to exit 6 instead, there is an lift for disables that go straight down to Line 1 after going down the stairs. (Yes Exit 4 has escalator but it takes long time to transit to Line 1 and there are stairs also) Right turn from exit 6 there is an alley up the slope, take the left one and go straight then you will get to the hotel directly. There are lots of restaurants and 2 convenient stores nearby. Will consider staying in this hotel again if i visit Seoul next time.
