This is a great hotel for a couple or a small group of friends. It doesn't have all the frills of a full-scale hotel, since it's considered a "boutique" hotel, but the service and amenities of this establishment more than make up for that. The location couldn't be better. You're a 2 minute walk from the Myeongdong subway station, but... More

Went for a shopping trip with my gf's. Stayed at the family room with two large double/queen beds. Pros: Friendly service, ease of navigation to myeongdong and public transport areas, convenient amenities, great 24 hour desk. Cons: Be warned there is a huge hotel being built nearby so may be noisy at times. But other than this nothing. Location: LOCATION... More

We spent three nights in this hotel. As a first timer visiting Seoul in the midst MERS outbreak, we had a very pleasant time to stay in the hotel. The service is excellent, and its location is great--among shopping places and nice restaurants. Breakfast is sufficient. They have arranged taxi for us to pick up from airport. This hotel is...

Perfect for a quick jaunt into Myeongdong. Very clean and comfortable room, though extremely small, so don't plan to spend much time. Staff was friendly, although unable to recommend any restaurants after 10pm on a Friday (McDonald's should never be a recommendation!).

I stayed here last month with my family. Room was clean and location is very good for shopping. Staffs were very helpful. But room is a little bit small. I will stay this hotel again if I visit Seoul next time.

I stayed in this hotel for three nights this May. Like it's location. It's very near from Myeongdong station. The room was quite small,but it's comfortable and provided everything! Wi-fi for free. Some spoke excellent English while others spoke less good English,but all were very helpful in finding answers to any questions. I think no one could be disappointed if... More

Just a change from our usual Seoul abode of The Plaza. The Grand is a really smallish, 50 roomed hotel tucked behind Sejong Hotel, and a couple of steps from Myeongdong Station. The plus points : location, cleaniness and friendly staff that converses in English. The cons : mosquitoes that probably came from a construction site, a slow single lift,... More

The location is right inside Myeongdong yet not along the noicey and busy street market, slightly away and close enough to drop off shopping bags and short breaks and be back on the streets within mins.

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.
