The Airport Limousine 6015 stop just in front of this hotel. Although it has some kind of old feeling, but I like the wooden floor. Myeongdong Station exit 10 is just in front of the hotel door and Myeongdong area at the back of the hotel. The deluxe twin is just the right size for 3 people.

Namdaemun market is within walking distance.
It has a perfect location to stay in Myeongdong.

The hotel is a very gd location cuz the airport bus just stop directly infront and there is an underpass to the subway there. Myeondong is just behind.

However, the rooms we got has a musky smell and the towels were not all that clean.

Great location for shopping and sightseeing.

Airport bus 6015 bus stop right in front of the hotel is truly convenient because we had morning flight, Myeongdong is few minutes away by walk.
Subway station just below the hotel.
Spacious room, comfortable bed, helpful concierge

Excellent location. Bus stops right in front, which is very helpful for a first time visitor to Seoul. Staff is helpful, with adequate english. Beds a little hard. Air Conditioning seems to be typical for Korea in April..."Open the window", which is ok for spring visits, but would not be acceptable for a summer visit. Just make certain that the air conditioning really works for the hot months. We found this hotel good for the first couple of days in Seoul, as it allows one to get their barrings and then move to another hotel, should they find the Sejong does not meet expectations.

Room Tip: make sure air conditioning really works

The hotel is in great location, airport bus no. 6015 stop right n front of the hotel and subway exit is also just outside the hotel. Myeongdong's shopping street is just a 2 minutes walk away.

Hotel room is clean and spacious. Bed is very comfortable too. I had great night sleep throughout the 4 nights stay in the hotel.

I would recommend this hotel to whoever visit Seoul.

Some reviewers have commented that the Sejong Hotel is a bit old and dated. I personally found the hotel to be like a grande dame, aging but still graceful and reminiscent of a past era. The hotel style feels very 19th century with the marble and wood accents and the impeccably outfitted doorman/bellman/staff.

I was very welcomed and the reception was nice enough to suggest changing my room from a twin-bedded to a queen sized bed at their own initiative. The standard room I booked was good enough for a solo traveler or couple, relatively well-maintained and clean. Room service was impressively fast - my lunch was delivered in 5 minutes although they had initially informed that it might take up to 20 minutes to be prepared.

The best part about Sejong Hotel is its super convenient location - the airport bus stops right in front of Sejong for both Incheon and Gimpo airports and the subway exit #10 of Myeongdong station is just mere meters away from the entrance if you should wish to venture further afield to Namdaemun and Dongdaemun. The shopping streets of Myeongdong are just a short stroll away and you can shop to your heart's content, return to the hotel and dump your loot, refresh and head out once again!

TIP : if you use the side entrance next to the washrooms/side elevator you are nearer to Myeongdong compared to using the front entrance!
