We spent the first week of 2014 in this hotel. The hotel is located in a nice area, within walking distance to train station, supermarkets, large shopping malls and restaurants. The rooms are always clean and cosy, just what you expect from any ibis worldwide. The hotel even has facilities on every floor that provide hot/cold water and ice as needed. We had a great time!
My only complaint was about the hotel's the "misleading" marketing trick. Before booking the hotel, I received an email from the Accord Hotel group that ibis hotels offered 30% discount, ibis Ambassador Seoul Gangnam was on the list. However, upon payment, we asked the hotel staff, we were told that the published rate was the discounted rate. We paid the published rate but I kept coming back on the website to check a few months later, I found that the rate either remained the same or lower BUT never higher than what we had paid. I had to wonder if the "30%" discount was a genuine offer or was it just a marketing trick to get people to fill up the hotel???
