I was staying in Superior room which doesn't cost a lot in comparison with other hotels close by. This hotel is highly recommended for business trip since location itself is just super good to reach everywhere in Seoul and restaurants are located nearby. I have no idea how to write more than 50 characters. If you have time for tea, I recommend Fell A Coffee which has a delicious milk tea and chocolate. Their chocolate is good for gifts. I can say their service is magnificent. The owner is so friendly.

AramSeo96님께 저희 호텔에서의 경험이 만족스러우신것 같아 호텔리어로서의 보람과 기쁨을 느낍니다. 소중한 고객님의 리뷰는 더 많은 직원들에게 공유될 것이며 이는 지속적으로 높은 서비스를 유지할 수 있도록 노력하는 직원들에게 있어 큰 버팀목이 될 것 입니다. 앞으로도 고객님께서 언급해주신 접근성 이외에도 늘 마음을 담아 고객분을 환대하는 서비스를 제공하는이비스 스타일 강남 호텔이 되도록 하겠습니다. 다시 고객님을 뵐 날을 기다리며 다시 한번 저희 호텔을 이용해주셔서 깊은 감사 드립니다. 감사합니다.

Just like most other Ibis hotels worldwide, Ibis Gangnam is reasonably priced, clean, practical, comfortable and convenient

The room was not exactly spacious but it was clean and well maintained. Not to mention that breakfast is delicious as well.

It is conveniently located beside various eateries and groceries.

For those travelling via metro - the nearest station is Samseong or Soelleung - both about 8mins walk away.

It is worth mentioning that KAL limousine bus takes passengers directly from Incheon airport terminal to Posco bus station - which is just 3mins walk away from the hotel. We found this option easy and practical as we were travelling with a few luggages.

Overall a pleasant stay and would highly recommend this place.

The staff is very kind and there are many delicious foods. The location is the best place in Korea. It has good accessibility, so we can easily go anywhere in all parts of Seoul. Also, hot places can be accessed by walking around.

Pros -

1) Relatively convenient location in Gangnam with quite a few eateries around (use NAVER maps to find places to eat because Google maps doesn't really work)
2) Complimentary internet and quite a variety of TV channels (as opposed to hotels in Japan)
3) Rooms are adequately sized for a single traveler but definitely not for couples or families.
4) Breakfast was commendable for a 3 star hotel, with porridge, pastries, bacon, eggs, sausages, fruits, salad etc.

Cons -
1) Though the toilet looked clean, it had a faint dried pee smell.
2) There is a safe in the room but it wasn't working (it couldn't lock even after multiple tries of following the instruction card)
3) Wifi signal is weak and disconnects often, which is terrible if you are trying to work or have a VoIP call.

As other users have pointed out, this hotel is stock standard for an Ibis, relatively no frills but with all the necessities. It is clean, relatively convinient and affordable especially given its location.

Unfemy experience was not so pleasant. Their staff are in dire need of training. They kept overcharging me for my pre-booked rooms, they couldn't seem to figure out their accor point system.

I didn't appreciate that one of their staff members was dismissive about my concerns about the incorrect charges, amounting them to be "because of the tax", which made no sense. It was clear to me that her priority was to ensure I went away along with my overcharge issue.

After finally spending my own time working out and then explaining the issue, I wanted to provide feedback so that this wouldn't happen again. That wansnt going to happen. From the staff and the night managers point of view, my issue was resolved so no further problem existed.

I was exhausted out of providing meaningful feedback with these people and I'd wasted enough time. When you stay at a hotel it's supposed to be a nice and smooth transaction. This wasn't, and only I appeared to be the one paying close attention, the staff weren't interested.

I have made complaints but I have no faith anything will come of it. My suggestion to fellow travellers is to scrutinise your bill as they are careless. My advice for fellow accor ALL members is don't bother, they don't care about your loyalty and they certainly find your membership perks problematic. Its a waste of time trying to provide feedback, they don't appear to care or unseestand that people don't like to be dismissed about their overcharge.

The breakfast was fantastic. I love the food selection from salad, soup (especially broccoli soup and pumpkin soup) and main dish. Though the hotel location was a bit far far from train stations, the surrounding neighborhood is such a treat. Restaurants and cafes are just around the corner.

Only stayed for one night for a quick in and out, but very pleased with the stay.

The hotel is located halfway between Solleung and Samseong station (the line that runs through Gangnam), and both within 5-10min walking distance. It's very close to COEX/Starfield Mall where you can find lots of shops and restaurants. Otherwise, unless you have business in the area, other hotels may have more useful locations.

Rooms are as expected, small but functional, clean and comfortable. Was upgraded to a superior and the bathrooms are very spacious and modern.

Did not try any of the hotel's facilities, bars or restaurants so cannot comment on these.

Not enjoying my stay. The standard room I’m in has a very strong unpleasant smell (seems to be the whole floor) and the room is not well maintained. The carpet looks filthy and stained, the walls need painting and the lighting is dim. There is also long black hair in the bathroom which I assume is from housekeeping. So far the bed appears clean but that would be the only positive so far. I have stayed at a large number of accorhotels including other Ibis properties around the world and this is the only hotel I have stayed at where I immediately wanted to leave due to the condition of the room. I don’t recommend

Hotel Ibis Styles Ambassador Seoul Gangnam is in a good location, close to Coex and in the trendy Gangnam area. I was disappointed with the outdated and ageing rooms.

Breakfast was fantastic. Service excellent.
