If you are looking for an affordable accommodation with great service in Myeongdong, this is probably the best you will find! I was worried it would be noisy, due to being in the heart of the shopping district, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. Our rooms were clean and serviced daily. The staff were cordial and spoke good...

Perfect location, superb service, best price --- Royal Hotel got all these magnificently for us. It was so easy to find, gave us an upgrade after a very late arrival at 2am, and all for the price of a hotel with lower category. I love the understated elegance of their rooms and the pampering amenities of the toilets. So high...

After moving from another hotel where we complained about the cramped space, this was a welcome treat. The hotel room was spacious for two. We were booked at the business floor and had access to free pastries and hot beverages. The best part is that it is located along the main shopping street of Myeongdong just across Leonidas and Starbucks....

Location is good, near to the myeongdong food street. But far from train station. Would be good if the hotel has more timing for the shuttle bus to and fro airport. Service is not good, housekeeping is good.

This was a first time stay in Seoul I had 2 nights at the hotel. The room had marble floors, a couch, desk everything you needed. The staff were helpful and friendly. Across the road is a park it is huge. All in all a good hotel would recommend.

Definitely one of the best location to stay in Myeongdong and yet quiet away from the bustling street. A very short walk to main shopping street and opposite you can find Starbucks or another local coffee house which has good coffee. Hotel room is modern and very comfortable. A very short walk to bus stop for airport limo and city...

Great location, helpful and accommodating staff. Except for the aircon in the room which i think is controlled that the room is quite hot. May i suggest that aircon temperature can be adjusted or provide fans. Nevertheless, we have a great stay in this hotel.

Paid extra for the breakfast / club, no bacon or anything only dry cereal and cold pancakes. Hotel staff unable to assist, or unwilling to work with me on arranging a golf booking as well. However, great location - would just recommend somewhere like Plaza or others that are much nicer.

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.
