“Excellent location, clean and value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I stayed at nine nights in this hotel in October 2012. The room was quite small but it was cleaned well everyday. The room was equiped well (water kettle, minibar, satellite Tv). There is very busy road in front of the hotel so light sleepers may have so problems. I didn't use hotel restaurant because it was easy to get breakfast from nearby cafes.

The location was fantastic. Prince Hotel was very easy to reach by airport bus nro. 6015 (buy tickets, hop on the bus at Incheon airport, exit last stop, cross the street and you are there). Myeongdong metro station is near so it very easy to travel around the city. Myeongdong are is several kilometers long neighourhood for shopping and dining. Large upscale departmentstores like Shinsegae and Lotte are also nearby.

In my opinion Prince hotel is a great choice for active travellers who does not need a big lobby, extra services, a pool or a gym. I didn't spend much time in the hotel during daytime in my holiday because there was so much to do and see in Seoul. For me it was good value for money!

Room Tip: Ask no smoking and upper level room!

Very close to airport bus stop (Sejong Hotel), subway line 4, and shopping in Myeongdong. The hotel staff was nice and even offered us umbrellas one day when we were about to head out. We stayed in a Double B room and thought it was okay for 2 people. Other reviewers said that the rooms were small. However, the room was big enough for us to spread our suitcases on the floor and also work on the desk in the room. The room was not big, but enough to be comfortable; nice and clean and comfy bed.

Stayed here for 8 days and no doubt its the most convenient hotel we've ever stayed. The room is not big but its clean & spacious enough to move around. Ours was a queen size bed and its comfy. They provide kettle & mug but no coffee / tea. Rooms don't come with breakfast but front desk will give you a discount voucher which will cost 14000won ($14). If you choose not to have the breakfast, there are 2 bakeries (Tous le Jour and Paris Baguette) and a Coffee Bean across the street. Wifi is free even in the rooms and toilet is in excellent condition. The airport bus shuttle no.6015 is just 8min away across the street (in front of Sejong Hotel),the underground subway is 3min away (located on both left & right of the hotel) but the best part of the hotel is it's located right across the Myeongdong Shopping Area. Ladies will go wild and men can indulge on food & beverages. Lotte Shopping Mall and Shinsegae Mall is also located nearby (10min walk) and N Seoul Tower can be seen behind the hotel although you might want to take a cable car instead of walking all the way up. Be warn, Seoul has many stairs and steep walkway. Wear comfortable shoes if you plan on walking / sightseeing.

Room Tip: For non-smokers, don't forget to request for a non-smoking room.

Located across from the Myeongdong shopping area and close to other sites in Seoul. Also conveniently located near the subway and airport shuttle. The rooms are a bit small, but they're clean. Staff is very friendly too.

Nice and cheap hotel with perfect location in the middle of Myeong Dong. Is also next to the subway line number 4 and also close to line number 2.
Clean rooms and friendly staff.
Poor breakfast and not worth the money. Better to walk across the street to caffe benne and have a coffee and a sandwich there for under half the price.

Room Tip: High floor.

It was not too far of a drive to the hotel destination and the staffs were pleasant and professional. They all were sufficient in Japanese/English. The hotel room was clean and neat. We had a wonderful time shopping at the Myung Dong Shopping District which was just across the underpass from the hotel. During the Weekend the shopping areas are extremely crowed but there are some great looking knockoffs, if you are looking for a bargain you might some some items.

Right next to Myeong-dong, a very popular shopping area, my wife and daughter had no complain at all. There is an underground train station just 2 minutes walk away, so you could easily hopping from one shopping area to another, all you need is a underground train station map and a travel guide.
The room size of our Deluxe Twin is very comfortable considering this is a hotel in a metro area. By the way, you can take the airport bus no. 6015 at Incheon Airport, and get off at the last stop and the hotel is just 5 minutes walk across the road.
