Lovely 5 star hotel. Rooms are well appointed and lavish bathroom. Toilet was separate and very high tech. Seat automatically lifted up as you opened door. If door was opened it automatically opened and closed as you walked by. :) Drinks and food out of line expensive. Most negative issue was employees spoke and understood very little English which ruined... More

Total top to bottom refurbishment and upgrade of this fantastically located property in the heart of Myeongdong just opposite the Cathedral and at the end of the pedestrianised main street. It is a serene oasis in the midst of a bustling district. The rooms are small, in line with the original hotel structure but everything works well from the new... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Royal Hotel Seoul. It's in an area of Seoul called Myeondong and we're happy we stayed there. It's a very active place in the evening, with street vendors selling all kinds of food as well as toys, luggage, clothing, whatever. The market area goes on for blocks and blocks and it's great fun.... More

Excellent location, we arrived about 10pm hungry and most restaurants are still open. Step out of the hotel and there are restaurants, food stalls, shops, shops and shops, MRT stations less than 10 mins walk. Room is very small, with 2 large luggage you would hardly walk but clean.

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.
