The newly-built hotel has 195 guestrooms and is located north of Seoul’s Han River in a commercial district renowned for its traditional markets and shopping centres. Ibis budget Ambassador Seoul Dongdaemun is a 10-minute drive to Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Myeong-dong District, Chunggyechen Stream and major shopping malls. The hotel is a stone’s throw away from the subway lines 2, 4, and 5, which connect it to the rest of Seoul.

Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for Accor Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines said, “With the successful opening of our ibis hotels in Seoul and Busan, we are proud and excited to introduce the first ibis budget hotel in South Korea. Ibis budget is one of Accor’s leading economy brands where at a value for money room rate, guests will find cosy beds, spacious showers, soft duvets, and an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.

“We saw an increasing demand in Seoul for international-standard accommodations coupled with affordable pricing; we therefore believe this hotel will become a favourite amongst domestic and international travellers visiting this vibrant city.”

All rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV with multi-media hub, individual reading lights, Wi-Fi connection, work table, safe, mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, and a sizable en-suite bathroom with shower. 
The hotel also features a 24-hour business corner with free Internet access and printing services.

The hotel’s General Manager, Tchang Lee, said, “Ibis budget Ambassador Seoul Dongdaemun integrates the core values of the ibis family brands – ‘simplicity, modernity and well-being’ and promises guests a quality accommodation at an affordable price, with the highlight being the signature beddings - Sweet Beds by ibis budget - for a good night’s sleep.”
