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

Arrived at Gimpo Airport after trip to Jeju. Problem getting onto airport bus 6001 (direct bus to ibis) as the buses are fully packed after Incheon Airport.

I tried to book Junior Suite the second time around but bathroom was... More

It's unusual we stay in a 3 star hotel but since I was traveling with my partially disabled mom, I needed to find a good hotel right smack in the heart of where it would be best for shopping, food and transportation.

This hotel is opposite the Lotte department store and close to Euljiro 1-Ga station (change at Hongik University if you're coming from Incheon or Gimpo airports on AREX). They got in my good books immediately by allowing me to check in several hours early after the long haul flight. Rooms are clean and room service excellent. Didn't try the restaurant.

Great location in the shopping area of Myendong. Rooms were clean with usual amenities. Staff were very friendly and helped us greatly with booking tours. Great views of the city from the restaurant during breakfast.

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.
