The hotel is located less than 5 mins away from Exit 10 of Myeongdong Station. We took the airport limo from Incheon Airport and alighted at Sejong Hotel stop. Although the room is a little small, it's very clean and the staffs are very friendly. Myeongdong shopping area is just to the left of our hotel. I will definitely stay... More

I visited Seoul several times before and stayed at different hotels. I was looking for a clean, safe, & affordable hotel for my stay in Seoul this past April. I was quite happy to find out about The Grand. I was very happy with my stay here. I enjoyed sleeping in my comfy bed and the Innisfree amenities. It's near... More

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights (total w625,000 via booking.com) in June 2014. Chose it because it was a pretty new hotel (opened last year) and located inside the Myeongdong shopping area. It took an hour or so from Incheon airport to the hotel by airport bus no.6015 (w10,000). Got off at Sejong Hotel and walked to the hotel... More

We stayed at the hotel for three nights following the positive rating of tripadvisor, and we could not be happier. The best, as mentioned by many of the reviewers are: 1. The location: central, very easy to access and lots of things to do around; 2. The spirit: Very helpful staff members who are all young and fluent in English;... More

We booked the hotel following tripadvisor's ranking. The hotel is just "perfect" Location: in the middle of everything happening in Myeongdong less the noise and the crowd.

We stayed there for 6 nights last week with our 2 young children and the service the hotel provided is beyond our expectation!! Location is superb, it's 2 minutes away from MyeongDong station, steps away from really good food, 5 minutes away from the main hub, so you still get a little peace among the noise. All the staff are... More

We stayed here as the last hotel on a 2 month trip so really wanted something clean and comfortable to relax in. We certainly got that! Staff were excellent. Couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Room is spotlessly clean and surprisingly large for Seoul. Bed was comfortable and weren't rock hard like many in Asia. Location is great. A... More

Our pleasant experience with this hotel started before we even arrived at the hotel. I had initially booked a standard room via expedia but had decided to upgrade our room to a deluxe for the extra space. Rooms on expedia were already sold out by then so we thought we'd try our luck and emailed the hotel whereupon the front... More
