The location is perfect, right in the heart of Myeongdong but just on the border so you don't hear the noise from the late night vendors and shops. You're about a two minute walk from the 1 and 2 line and 5 minutes from the 4 line. You can even walk to the N Seoul Tower. The rooms are quite... More

Seoul Royal is in the heart of Myeongdong. Everything is just at your doorstep. You will find money exchange places just around the corner, restaurants, food stalls, taxi and many more just in walking distance. The hotel I booked for was a twin share, a bit small but it's still lovely, ,clean and good service. We arrived at the hotel... More

We stayed for 4 nights. This is a great location to enjoy the shopping of Myeondong and the food stalls which set up at the end of each day. Staff were friendly and courteous and our room was cleaned generally while we were at breakfast which left it free and tidy for us all day, not always the case at... More

The best thing about the hotel is its location, right in the center of Myeong-dong shopping street, easily connected with busses and MRT. Staff was okay, not that courteous... We got a upgrade to executive suite, room was nice, view was okay. If you are looking at a good accommodation and flavor best of Seoul street food, and shop shop... More

Unfortunate - The staff were accommodating and allowed us to check in a couple hours early. They were kind enough to give us a bit of a larger room. All in all, that was fine. The issue was when I woke up with 10-15 bug bits on my legs and feet - and when we moved the bed and found... More

The service is excellent. Very well located. Close to everything. The restaurant is small but well organized. Even though 4 stars they have currency trading system that helped me a lot. Despite being right in the center, the hotel is very quiet and no noise. Very clean. They are to be congratulated.

We booked for 4 nights in this hotel and got a really good price at $125pn. This place is situated in the heart of Myeondong so very good location. However the service here was very poor. Requested a non smoking room and was told by the guy that it was a non-smoking but people may smoke in it sometimes. Room... More

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
