Room is good enough for backpacker but not for shopper due to its small size, fitting for only 2 persons and luggage and no elevator. Location is superb as it is just across the road for Myeodong shopping area. Staffs are helpful but lack of knowledge for tourist places and suggestion (have to find 2nd opinion). We have just found... More

I stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and chose this residence primarily for it's location and the price. I travelled solo so safety is a concern. If you are looking for concierge service, scenic room views and spa..this is not for you. The rooms are small but the shower and toilet is located inside the room. I just needed... More

There are numerous places like this dotted around the Korean capital- family-run guesthouses with tiny, ensuite dorm-sized rooms. This place was very clean and had all the necessary amenities; shampoo and soap, towels, TP, hair dryer, refrigerator, a TV that actually works (many don't!), A/C and complimentary breakfast. Unfortunately the breakfast area didn't open till 8:00am and I'm usually up... More

I have stayed in Vestin Residence Myeongdong for 11 days. The location is fantastic. It is very near to the Myeongdong subway and close proximity to the Myeongdong shopping area. There is heater available. The only thing is the place is too small and could be noisy at night if there are people checking in or out but for the... More

Everything was fine except for no lift available. My room was on the fifth floor and I had 2 big luggage with me which i have to carry up. Families with many luggage are advised to consider this factor in. Room is pretty small, mind that might not have enough space to open your luggage. Overall, still good for its... More

We stayed in a tiny room for 1 night only, but we were pleasantly impressed by the cleanliness of the place, the friendliness of the staff and the great location of this property. Yes, the room was a small 'box' but it had everything we needed and was super-clean. This budget hotel is a good option for Myengdong, and I... More

This is a great value place which is very convenient. It’s located right in the heart of Myeongdong, one of the major tourist areas, and is just steps from the metro. The airport shuttle bus also stops right across the street, an added bonus. This is a hostel-style accommodation, but with lots of small private rooms available at very good... More

If you are a backpacker in Seoul and need a clean place to stay with reasonable price in a decent location, this is a good choice. It's right off Exit 1 of Myeongdong station (line #4). The staff are friendly and helpful and they speak fluent English and Chinese. They provided bottled water, unlimited supply. Room cleaning is available upon... More
