The rooms were clean. The staff were very helpful and they let us check in early as our flight arrived at 7:30am. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Location was central so taking a taxi was cheap. Breakfast buffet was a little pricey over $22 but a lot of coffee shops in the area. Love the night shopping next street... More

Very nice hotel with a great view of the street and malls. Excellent location near Euljiro-il-ga station. Across from Lotte dept store. Steps away from night street stalls of Myeongdong. Great street food at cheap prices. Plenty of restaurants too. Several convenience stores in the vicinity in case u need food or toiletries anytime. Free wifi and spa.

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.
