Stayed at Grand Hotel, Myeongdong in July. This is the rainy season. Skies are cloudy but no thunderstorms, mostly showers. This hotel has easy access to Seoul Subway, and is steps away from shops, restaurants and street vendors. Twin room is pretty standard, spacious enough and more like 3 - 4 star.
All the reception staff are fluent in English, and are helpful and friendly. Clearly well trained. In particular, I like to commend Mr K M Lee who was very cheerful and pleasant, and always happy to offer assistance and advice.
There are a few Grand Hotels in Seoul. If you come by taxi, do take pains to inform the cab driver the hotel address in Korean. I was initially despatched to a Grand Hotel in Namdaemun.More
