I made reservation at Grand Hotel Myyeongdong due to friends recommendation, we had a lovely stay here. It is a location at the central point of Myeong Dong, that we would like to have as the hotel is not on the main street, we could have a good sleep every night without any tourists' noise. We were pleased when we... More

A modern boutique hotel within Myeongdong with shopping just steps away. What's great about this location is that while its close to the shopping areas, its situated on the quiet side. Rooms is a little bit small but very modern.

The Grand Hotel is tidy, very compact in size but pleasant. The location is key to this hotel. It is right in the center of Myeong Dong so an ideal place to crash for a quick shopping spree in the area and a couple blocks from the Airport Buses. We used this as a 22 hour layover pitstop before heading... More

The Hotel located in the middle of tourist area. You can just walk around out side the hotel and you will be in the street mall. The hotel's rooms are very small The staff are helpful and speak English very well.

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.
