Stayed here for my birthday in January and it was a very pleasant experience! The hotel prepared me a bottle of wine and chocolates, which I loved very much. The Grand is a nice little boutique hotel located in the middle of Myeongdong. I was very surprised to see how well it mixes European and Korean styles together. The room... More

Seoul was a very friendly, clean place. Not to mention - SHOPPING GALORE! We liked the location of this hotel in proximity to the restaurants and shops yet were somewhat tucked away from the evening noise. The room was a fair size but very clean and modern. Getting around via bus and subway was easy as well. Really liked it... More

Spent two nights there before proceeding to Hokkaido. Not good at writing so just two points (great ones): 1. Arrived Incheon 0530 and normally couldn't check in until 1400 but the staff offered us a complimentary early check in about 0800 when a room was available! 2. Was looking for the local sauna house 汗蒸幕. There's one just a few... More

We chose The Grand Hotel Myeondong due to its location in Myeondong area. It is near to the hustle and bustle of Myeongdong shopping street but yet not too near, hence it was quite peaceful walking back to the hotel. And Myeongdong Metro Station is a walking distance away. We booked the Family Twin and the Grand Family room for... More

We stay 5 nights in the family room, all the details in the room is very well decorated. We went to the Friday happy hour drinks provided by the hotel for free, drinks and snacks are very good. Must say thanks to the staffs to let us check in earlier. The only disadvantage is the room is a bit small,... More

Hotel staff was great, room was a little small but location was walking distance to shopping area so convenient, bathroom could have been cleaner.

We selected the Grand Hotel Myeongdong based on very positive Trip Advisor reviews, its convenient location, and its small size. We definitely made the right choice. Having just 50 rooms allowed the staff to focus on service and provide a pleasant environment that felt like you were truly in another country. We walked through a couple of large, international chain... More

Location is wonderful, within a minute walk from Myengdong station. Though it is not a large hotel, it is tidy, clean and the most impressive is "smile from staff". They are very helpful. I was there on Christmas Eve, we did have free "happy hour time" with drinks (red wine as well) and snack, lucky draw, free instant photo..... seemed... More
