I stayed at the Ibis Myeong-dong in January 2012.
Location, location, location, and the Ibis Myeong-dong has it. I have been using this hotel for almost four years now and it continues to meet my needs (thus my rating). The staff is always very friendly and helpful, and the location is excellent. The airport bus stops in front of the hotel (it didn’t use to) and many places to eat and shop are right out your door. The hotel is also not far from such attractions as the N Seoul Tower (nice view of the tower from the bar), Gyeongbokgung Palace and Insadong. I walked from the Ibis to the U.S. embassy.
Yes, the standard room and bathroom (only a shower) are small, but they are clean. And yes, the beds/pillows can be firm (common throughout Asia).
The standard room has a small TV, a small refrigerator and a kettle for instant coffee/tea. There are free PC’s and Wi-Fi. And, there is a decent buffet breakfast with an early start. Myeong-dong is not an inexpensive area, and you should keep that in mind when looking at hotel prices. If you are looking for a hotel in the Myeong-dong area, and do not intend to spend most of your day in your hotel room, I definitely recommend the Ibis. I know I will continue to stay there.
