Hotel staff was great, room was a little small but location was walking distance to shopping area so convenient, bathroom could have been cleaner. Happy hour was only on Friday so if you are lucky to be there it is a nice treat. Great to have free water bottles in room, free wifi. We could only get a room with... More

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

Locationwise, as per all other reviews, you can't go wrong with this hotel. This is a very contemporary hotel. We had a family room with 2 double beds. The beds were obviously a bit small for 2 adults and 2 children, but the room itself was adequately sized. It was well maintained and clean. We enjoyed good free wifi in... More

This is one of the hotel right in the smack of Myengdong! The location is fantastic, the staff are great. We stayed in a family room but just the size is too small for 4 adults. Nevertheless, the hotel is clean, very well maintained. You can easily access to the train station and all the shopping street. Walking distance to... More

It's not luxe and the rooms are a bit small but I could find no deficiencies. For us, the location could not have been better. Close to the action of Myeongdong, the subway, the big department stores and the airport bus service. We stayed 6 nights. The staff were charming and helpful. We had no major communication problems.

A great boutique hotel, new and very clean. Hotel front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The room was extremely clean and had little extra touches like a full set of toiletries.
