“Prime location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Nine tree hotel is a prime location. Myeong-dong comestic streets is just below the hotel. The staff are very helpful and speak fluent english,chinese and japanese. From incheon airport to nine tree hotel, just take bus limousine 6015 about 70 mins to sejong hotel. From there just walk straight down towards myeong-dong exit 8 or look out for oliva young store, turn right and walk in to nine tree hotel at the right side.

There a lot money exchange shop around. I stayed in family twin room for 3pax. The room is clean, neat and spacious. I am able to open 3 big luggages.

Overall, i had a pleasant stay at nine tree hotel.
Definally a good choice to stay when you are in Seoul.

Four of us checked into Nine Tree Hotel for a 6-night stay. The hotel is just great - clean, well-furnished and in a great location. We had a great time in Seoul and the Nine Tree was a big part of that experience.

Positives
1. Location - if you love being close to the buzz, noise and lights of Myeongdong, this hotel is perfect. The hotel is at the south of this district and everything fantastic is within walking distance. Shops, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores are all just really downstairs. It's a 100 metres to the Myeongdong train station. Passing through Myongdong, it's a 10min walk to Shinsagae Mall, 15min walk to Lotte Dept Store, 15min walk to Nandaemun.
2. Cleanliness - top notch.
3. Pillow menu - we were surprised the hotel had one and the variety was just incredible. We ordered buckwheat pillows. Beds are very comfy.
4. Extras - the room has a air purifier, a Korean teapot set and a foot massager. We very impressed and with all the walking we did, the foot massager came in handy. It's a little painful but worth the squeeze.
5. Guests' lounge - there's a cozy lounge on Level 11 with a TV, computer, a soda vending machine, ice and a coffee maker. A good place to meet others.
6. Coin laundry - there's a washer and dryer that runs for 2000 won each. Useful for those on long stays. Soap powder is an additional 2000 won.
7. Bathroom - Two types of showers, strong pressure. Loved the overhead rain shower. The hot water is really very hot. There's an automatic bidet toilet with all the wash/dry bells and whistles.

Negatives
1. Bathroom - There's a unique problem with the bathroom design. There's a small vertical gap between frosted glass door and the wall. The gap is next to a shiny chromed surface and the reflection can make for slightly awkward moments.
2. Bathroom - The bathroom is enclosed by frosted glass, except for 10cm gap at the top of the door. It's not exactly the most noise-proof and light-proof. The frosted glass also makes for potentially revealing silhouettes since the shower/bath area is next to the wall. There's a screen on the bedroom side that we pulled down that improved the situation.
3. Door lock - On a few occasions, the door didn't close and lock properly when simply allowed it to close on its own.
4. No toiletries - Not a big deal but goos to know that the hotel doesn't provide any so bring your own or buy some downstairs.
5. Aircon - the aircon cut off in the middle of the night a couple of times. We had to set it at 20 deg to get the ambient temperature to 23 deg. Weird but just happened once.

Always wait for good advice with mind-set to make you sure comfortable, cheerful and creditable.
However, it was to be regretted that we were unable to meet your expectation during your stay in our hotel.
Even though we always trying to meet the guest’s expectations as far as possible but from time to time we do not live up to the guest’s expectation as you already have experienced.
As a newly opened hotel we have a lot of things to be improved and we are on preparation for those things to help the guest who are visiting our hotel. We believe that this will be improved soon.
And we do have toiletries at Front desk such as shaver, body lotion, tooth brush, tooth paste, cotton for our dear guest.
Hereafter, whole staff at our Nine Tree hotel Myeong-dong will offer better services to our dear guest.
I'm asking you to be unchanged affections and unstinted praise to our hotel. and we looking forward to see you soon at Nine Tree Hotel Myeong-dong. Thank you.

We stayed at Nine Tree Hotel from 3 nights at the end of August.

Hotel is easily accessed and close to Myeongdong Station. You can found many cosmetics shops, shoes shop and restaurant around the hotel.

Staffs are nice and some of them can speak Mandarin.

Room is spacious and clean. It is much appreciate that lower the height of bathtub so that guests can be easily to get in there. Guest can choose different hardness of pillows and that is so great.

I will choose Nine Tree hotel again when I visit Seoul again for sure.

It's located just 1 minute from exit 8 of myeongdong station. It has excellent views of the city and cozy, small rooms perfect for couples... It has a cafe on the 2nd floor, a restaurant and small lounge... The staff speak many languages, and are very kind... Use the sejeong hotel if you want to use the airport limo bus to here but not from here, the arex trains are faster

I stayed here with my hubby for 6 nights.

The key thing about this hotel is the location. It is about 1min walk from Myeongdong station (exit 8). Come out of the station and turn into the road where the bakery is. The sign for the hotel is quite high up so we almost walked past it.
A 15-20mins walk to N Seoul Tower.

The rooms are quite small (we stayed in a standard double) so we just about managed to have enough space to open up both our suitcases. We got a really good rate here so didn't mind as much. The bathroom has a shower and there is no door so once you're out of the shower and you have the air con on, it's gets a bit chilly.

We didn't try the breakfast there but we did pop downstairs to the 2nd floor to get a coffee from 'The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf' - very handy having a coffee shop in the same building.

There is free wifi in the rooms and also a coin laundry facility next to the business centre. If you didn't bring your own detergent, there is a vending machine there where you can buy detergent.

In conclusion, this hotel is a good hotel if you want to stay in a central location and on a budget. It is clean and has all the necessities.

I moved into Nine Tree as Sejong was fully booked and unable to extend stay. Its a stone's throw away. The small hotel entrance, which leads to the elevator to the front desk, was not too tough to find. The rooms are modern decorated with striking colours like lime green. The front desk staff are nice and friendly. I would say in all that this is a splendid alternative to Sejong Hotel due to its pricing and good location. Great for friends in a group! Room could use more space for bags though. A little tight.

I stayed at the Nine Tree for a 2 nights this past week. The hotel is a tremendous value, and is certainly one of the best values in the Myoungdong area, in my opinion. It is a fairly new hotel, clearly aimed at the budget tourist, but is conveniently located for business as well. The rooms are small but extremely functional, and the bathrooms are well equipped and clean. The bed was very comfortable, and the room as a whole was clean and well maintained. Rates are extremely reasonable, and the location is superb (it is literally a 1 minute walk from Myeongdong station exit 8, and is a 2 minute walk from an Airport Bus stop).

Free high-speed internet is provided, and speeds are generally good. Some rates include breakfast, but frankly, this is probably not worth it, since there are several restaurants and cafes nearby.

Service was good, and the folks in reception spoke English reasonably well.

Given that it is only 30 minutes by train from GMP and only 1 hour from ICN, I will likely stay here again in the future; this is now high on my list of Seoul hotels for a quick stopover; it certainly isn't a premium hotel, but is excellent for sleeping in a good location.
