J Hill is a boutique hotel centrally located in the heart of the Myeongdong shopping district. What more can you ask for? Be greeted by their chirpy staff every morning an absolute delight! The only setback, the breakfast isn't too appetizing and the rooms are rather cramp.

Took off from airport bus at Ibis hotel then facing Lotte take your left heading to the first block. Take left and walk straight until you see hotel JHill. It is less than 5 minutes for the walk. So convenient. Given the price we paid for 7 nights with breakfast can't complain much but room is too smelly.

Perfect location. You can walk right out the door to the many shops of Myeongdong and is a very short walk to the subway. The rooms are small (normal for Korea) but clean and very comfortable. They do offer breakfast which was average. I stayed here 3 times and all were great stays. No complaints.

The staff where very enthusiastic about their job. This was the first time I have been to Korea and the area that the hotel was in, was very convenient. The train station was only a five minute walk away from the entrance to the hotel and there were numerous restaurants scattered around the area. The small problems where that the... More

Small rooms but perfect location. You can shop in myeongdong and go up to you room to leave your things, then go down and eat at the food stalls. Staff are friendly and accomodating. I'd like to come back soon!

I have been to Seoul three times now. The previous times I stayed in Dongdaemun, Namsan Tower, and now, Myeongdong. The location of this hotel can't be beat! Many times, I would go shopping, drop off my bags and then go back out. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants, and banks around the hotel. The staff are wonderful and very... More

Standard double room priced at 143,000 won, with breakfast for 2 inclusive. Room is a bit small but suitable with a double bed, all the necessary amenities. Most rooms comes with a bathtub, and you should request for one if you want it. Comes with the complimentary soap, full length towels etc, the whole standard works. Breakfast is free and... More

I would surely recommend this hotel to others. + Very good location, 5 min.walk to airport bus and metro station, good breakfast (asian and european), central heating, which was very important in January, smoking place (outside terrace with a nice city vew), washing machine and laundry facilities. If you need any information, better ask tourist information office, which is next... More

Located right in the center of Myeongdong which is great. Plenty of restaurants, clothing shops at walking distance. Very clean. Unfortunately the room is extremely small. You basically have to place any your luggage right behind the door and constantly move it as you enter and exit the room. The room itself is only slightly larger than the bathroom. Breakfast...
