Great Location, but Not Worth the Price

Posted Nov 13, 2017
Pros: Great staff, comfortable mattress, lovely Japanese toilet, great location
Cons: Cleanliness of the room hallways and cleanliness of the bathroom floors. The buffet needs more staffing to clean up around the food.
Location: I walked to some nice restaurants and saw a play in the theater district.
Ibis can be a great budget hotel, but for the price I paid, I could have gotten better value elsewhere. The hotel is easy to find and it's walking distance from many attractions. The staff was presentable and very kind/ friendly/ professional. The overall building upkeep was good and clean. The gym was nice; it had a variety of clean equipment. The hot bath was OK-- it consisted of one bath at about 33C. The hot bath was not ideal for more than one party. It was too small to share with strangers. Breakfast was not worth 12,000 won. The dining area was nice and big for the crowd, but there was not enough food to keep up with the crowd. A pile of dirty dishes was stacked in the same area as the food was served and there was spilled food all over the buffet. My biggest concern was the cleanliness of the rooms. The upper floors were too dry. I got an electric zap every time I touched something. Dust was built up on the window ledges along with dead bugs. The room had a weird bathroom that felt like a port-o-potty was just placed inside the room. The floor of this bathroom was pealing up with mold everywhere. It had a nice clean Japanese toilet though. My bed sheets had a small hole ripped in them and I found a couple hairs. I wouldn't pay more than 50,000 Won for this.

Near the beach

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness, relaxing, A/C, free water in the fridge, beach nearby, food nearby
Location: Beach and street food. Main transit station wasn't too far, maybe 5-10 minute walk
Near the beach and not to far from the main part of the beach life, with a food alley just west of the main drag. Found lots of great street food options there. The beach was two or three blocks away. Nice to walk along and get my feet wet and stare out at the Pacific.

One night stay for a quick staycation. Exactly as pictured and expected. Rooms were nice and fair for the price/location. TONS of good food options nearby. Would 10/10 stay again.

Clean and convenient

The room is very clean, bed comfortable. The location is ideal for visiting palaces and shrine, all within short walking distance.

Close to everything

Air conditioning needs some work as my room was to warm at night given it was 90 degrees outside. Great place to stay!
