Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.

Room is small but expected since it is an Express Hotel but then the service and room experience is superb! There are free breakfast provided in the hotel for all in-house guests. Room is clean and service from the staff are excellent. Location of the hotel is good and convenient since it is of walking distance to the train station and hotel itself is linked to a Shopping Mall. Staff will also provide member recognition services to me upon checking in as I'm an IHG Member as well but such recognition may not be received in other IHG Hotels.

Hotel was clean, had a very comfortable bed; everything I needed to have a comfortable stay. Free bottles of water whenever I asked and the breakfasts were delicious and varied. Go there early! This hotel is right at a subway entrance—it could not be more convenient. Very kind and helpful staff. I would stay here again without hesitation. Price was also reasonable.

We enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Express Seoul Hongdae. It is very easy to reach by the Arex train that runs from both airports. Take exit 5 at Hongdae University Station and you are almost right in the lobby. You can’t miss it. It is also easy to get downtown – just 6 stations on line 2 that is also accessible from Hongdae University Station. The room was small, but exactly what we needed. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was buffet style as usual. The area south of the hotel is also very nice – full of cafes, restaurants and lots of street musicians. This hotel is a good no nonsense hotel where you get exactly what you get at other Holiday Inn Express Hotels. We can definitely recommend that you stay here.

The location is great, as the hotel sits above the station from Airport Express. Very good and professional service provided by the Front Desk. The room was spacious, clean and tidy as expected. I did have an incident in the lift and I reported to the hotel as the lift was stuck and repeatedly shook up and down. Quite scary moment.
