We’re stayed here for 6 nights in November 2015, we got the Twin room with 2 single beds and was staying on the 9th floor. After reading numerous reviews regarding this hotel I wasn't expecting much but to my pleasant surprise the hotel exceeded my expectations and more! The rooms have a desk area with shelves, table and chairs and... More

First, the location was confusing because there is another Western co-op building in front of it and it was embarrassing being told we got the wrong place. The room it self was ok, it was spacious enough and looked clean and tidy. However, I am not a fan of the room layout. There is a big open area for the... More

The hotel is near to Dongdaemun market, Design centre & Dongdaemun shopping malls area (Lotte FinTin, AM/PM etc), each approximately 15mins walk from hotel. Airport bus stop to/from (Incheon Bus 6001) is just right in front, very convenient. Guests can enjoy free parking. The room is decent for 4 pax (1 double bed, 2 single), there were 3 of us... More

The location of this hotel is reasonable, I say reasonable not excellent, it is somewhat off the hub of Dongdaemun shopping area, you need... More

If you plan to spend your time in Seoul shopping, this hotel is the excellent choice. Only a few steps to the big shopping part of the city with many malls open 24/7. Unbelievable to see people awake just for that reason. Hotel has weak, but free internet connection. Rooms have a kitchen part. Noise from the street in ok... More

Staying in Dongdaemun / Sindangdong

Neighborhood Profile
Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centers – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
