The hotel is in a great location, right in the center of the shopping district and close to great food. The lobby smells great and has a pretty good feel. The room was clean, furnished well, a very comfy bed and was pretty quiet. However, the room was very warm. I have a condition where if I get hot I...

This is actually quite a nice hotel but service is a bit patchy and website pricing somewhat misleading. We arrived in early evening with no greeting outside then sent by ground floor desk to another floor for check in, no help with heavy luggage and another guest showed me where the lifts were. We were expected there and allocated a...

Enjoyed the hotel and its simplicity. Most times less is more. It's location is convenient and in the middle of the town - basically step out to buy anything you might be lacking. The shuttle bus drops you a few feet from the Reception door.

Hotel is neat and clean. Nice receptionist and concierge. The most important is that hotel is located right at the beginning of Myeong-dong. Very convenient. All the important sightseeing areas of Seoul are in the walking distance from the hotel.

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.
