Staffs are very easy to speak with, friendly, and swift to attend to requests. Very tidy and well equipped hotel, incomparable services, very quick and easy check-in. My booking got messed up with dates and the hotel management got it sorted out easily. Didn't realize I've booked a twin room and upon arrival I asked for an upgrade to deluxe... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with breakfasts included back in November 2014. It ranked No. 1 in TripAdvisor at the time when I made the reservation. Its ranking is 11 now when I am writing this review and I think that this rank reflects the hotel better judging from the money that I had paid. Location It... More

We stayed for three nights. It's in a very busy district and two mins from the main underground station. Within 15 mins you can be at all the major tourist attractions. The nightlife is busy near the hotel, not many western restaurants (pizza, burgers available) there's loads of shops and coffee / cafes to get a snack. The staff on... More

This hotel is blessed with the most amazing staff who go out of their way to make your stay perfect. When we got in after an exhausting day on the Friday, we were told there was a bottle of wine in the room for us to enjoy. Not only was it a bottle of wine but cheeses and chocolate and... More

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.

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.
