It was very nice the stay in Seoul. The hotel was OK but the staff was very helpful and helped out booking the DMZ tour and finding good restaurants as well. The hotel location is convenient and close to the metro. DMZ tour is a must for sure. Going down the tunnel is a unique experience. Don't miss it

After a dreadful check-in I am enjoying my stay here. Contrary to other reviews, I did not find the standard of English so good at reception. [It varies and some staff are fluent but not all].

Stayed for 5 nights. Staffs were very friendly, courteous and helpful. Clean room but size is rather small. Excellent location is - few steps from Myeongdong Shopping Haven & plenty of restaurants. A few minutes walk from subway & right in front of Airport Limo bus stop (makes traveling to & from airport very easy). Will definitely come back to... 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.
