We stayed at this hotel at the end of August for 3 nights and had a very pleasant experience. The staff was super helpful with ordering cabs where needed and by giving directions to famous sights. Good restaurants in the area and in walking distance to the palace and namsan cable car station are also a big plus. The staff... More

A small hotel in a central location close to Myeongdong, Namdaemun and City Hall. Lots of restaurants close by. The airport bus stop is right outside (bus no. 6001 and 6015 to Incheon Airport). We stayed in a twin bed room here for 6 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. Free WiFi in the room. Be prepared though for... More

We had a great stay at Hotel Shin Shin. The hotel was clean and comfortable for our 6 nights there. It was a short 10 mins walk to Myeongdong and 5 minutes walk to Namdaemun Market. There's money changers with great rates around the China Embassy which was just nearby. The subway station was a 7 to 10 minutes walk,... More

This is a small hotel with probably less than 100 rooms spread across under 10 floors. It's located near Myeongdong area as well as the Namdaemong market, so shopping is a breeze which includes the Lotte shopping centre and other upmarket shopping malls. Good wifi in the room and elsewhere in the hotel. Due to its size, don't expect any... More

We stayed 7 nights in Hotel ShinShin and found it was the prefect base for exploring Seoul due to it being close to 2 metro stations and walking distance to many museums and palaces. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the modern rooms, ours was well furnished with an absolutely huge king size bed, high quality Egyptian cotton... More

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.
