Very descend hotel with good view from the hotel room. Good location, only 5 minutes distance to Namdaemun market and less than 10 mins to Myeong-dong. Easy access by the Airport Bus. Good service with nice staff, well trained and no problem to communicate in English. Will choose this hotel again!

Hotel location was great, near to shopping and eating area. But the room was too small, there. Toilet was so small that you basically can't put much stuff and it creates inconvenience and the lights are so dim that even with the curtains up, you can't see that clearly in the mirror. There's not much space to put luggage. Room... More

I was really sorry to read of your disappointment following your stay with us and am especially sorry not to have known of the elements of disappointment during your time with us. Being a smaller Boutique hotel Hotel ShinShin is very different in its style to that of the larger mentioned hotel that you previously stayed at. Since opening as... More

I stayed for 8 nights in August 2014. Had read reviews of others on TripAdvisor and chose this hotel based on reviews and its location. I wasn't disappointed...the staff was VERY friendly on check-in, especially since I arrived fairly late (after 9pm) after a 12-hour flight. Kudos to Kevin (front desk trainee) and Hasim Hwang, assistant GM...they were most helpful!... More

I overnighted in Seoul on my way to NYC and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and friendliness of the Hotel and staff. clean comfortable chic and good location. Easily accessible from the metro station and close to the Myeongdong shopping area. Would've easily stayed longer.

Cosy and comfortable room, great service, quiet and centrally located. The hotel is clean and well maintained though the room is little bit small but that can be easily dismissed because of it's other strong points. Cityhall station is about 10-15mins walk away. Access to myeongdong and namdaemun market is so easy. Myeongdong is just less than 10 mins walk... More

Shinshin is centrally located and well-priced, with lovely rooms and terrific staff who are attentive and helpful (with strong English-speaking skills). There are many restaurant and shopping opportunities within a few blocks, and some of Seoul's most popular tourist sights are just minutes away. I plan to return whenever I visit Seoul.
