It features an F&B outlet that serves poplar Mexican dishes as well as a bar. Recreational facilities include a spa and fitness centre, while there are two meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 180 people in a theatre setting.

Patrick Basset, chief operating officer of Accor, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia said: “The two openings reflect the successful partnership between Accor and Ambassador Hotel Group. The Ibis brand was first introduced to South Korea ten years ago, the dual openings of Ibis Ambassador Seoul Dongdaemun and Ibis Busan Haeundae will give corporate and leisure guests added hotel choices when they travel to the country”.
