The major problem I had was that they do not provide necessary cookware or cooking equipment. Otherwise perfectly adequate and a good value. The staff are helpful although they have minimal English. Most of my issues were quickly resolved except for the cooking paraphernalia.

I've been to Seoul 3times now (2012/2013/2015) and all 3times I stayed here, the hotel is about 5-10 mins walk down a straight road to Dongdaemun History & Culture station. From Incheon or Gimpo airport you can take the airport bus 6001 (costs 14500Won p/p when I traveled not sure if this has increased!) If your main purpose as mention... More

This is my first time to visit other countries with my friends. The package that I found on the internet was attractive and the trip (20/5 - 24/5) was so unforgettable to me. Our flight was around midnight. We arrived at the Incheon Airport at 05:00 and the hotel at 07:30. The lady at the reception helped us store the... More

This service apartment type of accomodation is located within 3 mins walk of the underground station and Zaha Hadid's architectural landmark and the airport limousine bus stops directly outside the building's entrance whether you're going to or coming from the airport. The nearest station is served by 3 underground lines which covers most of the popular tourist spots, so convenience... More

I have stayed in Western Coop on all my 5 official visits in Seoul. First of all, its not a typical hotel. You can safely call it as a place with rental apartments. The rooms are small yet incredibly designed to accomodate all the necassary things for comfort. I like following things about this property - 1. The interiors are... More

Pros Location: to and from airport- there is an airport shuttle bus which stops right in front of hotel.

Staying in Dongdaemun / Sindangdong

Neighborhood Profile
Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centers – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
