This hotel has a good location for shopping as it is located right in Myeongdong so for lovers of Korean cosmetics this is where you want to be. There's plenty of restaurants around as well so you'll be spoil for choices. The staff are helpful and polite. However, the room is a bit small. We stayed in a room for... More

Stayed here last week for 4 nights and it was great! The hotel was in a really good convenient location on the quieter side of Meyongdong so you won't be bombarded with shoppers the moment you are on the street level. It was just around the corner by the airport bus stop (about 3 mins walk away) and very close... More

All you need to do is step out of the hotel and you are in the main shopping and food area. Walk some 200 meters and you are at the subway station. Take the bus limousine 6015 from Incheon airport and you are dropped off right in front of the Myeong dong station. How convenient is this? The rooms are... More

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.
