Millions of real travelers worldwide have helped identify these outstanding hotels, recognized for their exceptional accommodations, service, and value.

Hotel ibis Myeong-dong Seoul has been recognised by TripAdvisor® in its 2009 Travelers Choice® Awards as one of Asia's top 10 bargains and ranked number 29 of 100 of the best bargains world wide.

Patrick Basset - Vice President for South Korea, Japan, Philippines and Vietnam for Accor says "ibis Myeong-dong is a likely recipient of such an award. The hotel has a location in the main shopping and business district of Seoul that is second to none, offers extremely competitive and transparent pricing and the quality of the hotel product and services sees the hotel perform very well with Accor's internal guest feedback measurement systems". He went on to say "in the economic times like today, customers seek value accommodation, and ibis Myeong-dong Seoul offers the value for money that you have come to expect of the ibis hotel brand".

Now in its seventh year, the TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards honour the world's best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best - real travelers. Unlike any other hotel awards program, TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice® winners are based on the millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on tripadvisor.com™ and content from across the web.

"TripAdvisor travelers always appreciate great values, and 2009 is certainly no exception. The 2009 Travelers' Choice awards highlight more bargain properties than ever before with 190, nearly five times as many as last year," said Michele Perry, vice president of global communications for TripAdvisor. "Millions of real travelers worldwide have helped identify these outstanding hotels, recognized for their exceptional accommodations, service, and value."

ibis Myeong-dong, like all ibis hotels around the world, offers around-the-clock service, meaning that regardless of their time of arrival, guests can rest assured they will find bar services and snacks available at the hotel. The "8-hour non-stop" breakfast concept implemented in all ibis hotels globally is adapted to the pace of guests - available anytime from 4am to 12pm, and the quality of each guest's stay is guaranteed by a "15 minute Satisfaction Contract".
