After arriving to Guesthouse the Maru at Namdaemun I was surprised how tight and small the place were compared to the pictures. It seems that the room looked wide in the picture, but in reality it was small (the bed took all the place).
It is cheap that living in shared room ~usd23 per night.
The location is good. 10mins to city hall station. But quite far away to myeongdong ~20mins. Quite tired to walk back after shopping.
The basement was full of flies. Never end. I didn't live...More

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.
