Very good location, in the heart of Myeongdong but still quiet and away from all the music and noise from the shops. Room was small but clean and modern. Hotel kindly let me borrow their freezer in the restaurant to store my ice packs and breast milk, very friendly and helpful indeed.

Located about a block or two away from the main Myeongdong shopping area. Airport limo stop is right around the corner, Myeongdong station is a block away. Location is excellent for those planning to do a lot of shopping in the area. The hotel is located far enough from the main shopping area that noise was never an issue. The...

I am very satisfied with The Grand Hotel Myeongdong. Whatever the room, the service and the staff. After the staff have checked there was available room, they let us check-in when we arrived the hotel before the check-in time. Their staffs are helpful and polite.

Hotel has excellent location for shopping in myeongdong and in our case, airport bus 6015 for very early flight. Staff service attitude/quality is excellent and hotel is located at quiet end of the shopping street. Only real negative...

The location of this hotel is perfect. It is within a minute walk to the Myeongdong Subway station (exit 9) and the 6015 airport bus stop. The hotel is on a smaller street but very easy to find (near/behind the big L7 hotel). It is walking distance to the very busy Myeongdong shopping area so lots of restaurants, shops and...

I stayed here for six nights in late October. The hotel is situated on the outskirts from the busiest places in Myeongdong, but you're definitely within walking distance of the main places in Myeongdong (<0.25-0.5 miles). It's close to the street food stalls, the shopping, etc. It is also quite convenient to end up here from the 6015 bus that...

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.
