5. Diving into Price Analysis

Finally, let’s delve into arguably one of the most critical categories in hotel reviews – pricing.

To pinpoint where you can get your money’s worth, I’ll be comparing rates from renowned hotel comparison platforms like ‘HotelsCombined,’ ‘SkyScanner,’ and ‘Trivago.’

Our criteria for this low-price hunt? A one-night stay from Wednesday to Thursday for two guests in a single room—breakfast excluded (as it often significantly bumps up costs).

5.1. Price Comparison via ‘HotelsCombined’

ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong: lowest price on Hotels Combined

After searching through ‘HotelsCombined’, the best deal I found was $84 when booking through ‘Booking.com’, ‘Hotels.com’, ‘Expedia’, etc. The majority of websites showed the same lowest price.

5.2. Price Comparison via ‘Sky Scanner’

ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong: lowest price on Sky Scanner

The lowest price on ‘Sky Scanner’ is $90 for a 1-night stay when booking through ‘Trip.com’ and ‘Vio.com’.

5.3. Price Comparison via ‘Trivago’

Strangely enough, it was not possible to check prices on ‘Trivago’.

5.4. Official Website of ‘ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong

ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong: lowest price on the official website

I also explored prices directly from the ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong official website. The lowest price on the official website was $84, based on non-member rates.

Our analysis reveals that out of all four sites considered, the ‘HotelsCombined’ and the ‘Official Website of the Hotel’ offer the best deal at USD 84 for a stay at the ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong. You might want to keep this information handy while booking.

★ Do bear in mind, these rock-bottom prices are subject to change based on your stay dates and when you’re conducting your search.

★ Also crucial to remember – today’s best deal doesn’t necessarily promise future savings.

★ Consider this ‘Lowest Price Analysis’ as a guiding light rather than an absolute rule.

★ For savvy hotel booking, I’d recommend revisiting these comparison sites during your accommodation planning phase – you never know when you might stumble upon an even better deal!”


And with that, we wrap up our review of the ibis Ambassador Seoul Myeongdong, seen through a distinctly Korean lens.
