We stayed for a 5 nights at this centrally located hotel, located within Myeondong shopping district. Just step out of the hotel you are ready to start your shopping trip :D. Our room is consist of a single bed and double bed just right for our small family, hotel room is decent in size and consist of basis amenities. Hotel lobby is rather small but staff is helpful and all the staff are english speaking. We will definitely come back to this place!

Ideal location, fantastic staff, a stone's throw from the wonderful Seoul Metro, great shopping and dining just outside your door - you can't ask for more. Add the little things like complimentary Metro cards, chocolate chip cookies, and free breakfast- this hotel delivers value above and beyond expectations. My only complaint was the street noise coming from the Outback Steakhouse, which was cured by a pair of earplugs.

Room Tip: Book well in advance and try to get a room on one of the upper floors.

We chose this hotel because of all the positive reviews here in Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed.

The rooms are quite small, but just right for how much we paid for. The breakfast table has not much variety, but quality of the food are all good, and filling.

We appreciate the freebies upon check-in, a pair of coffee mugs and Ben's cookies. I even bought a box of cookies from the store in Myeongdong.

The best part is, the hotel's location. Very convenient for shopping, and even close to sites to visit, such as N Seoul, cheonggyecheon stream, etc.

Should we plan to be back to Seoul, I'll be staying in this hotel again. :)

Stayed for a week in this hotel. Location was great. Right in the heart of Myeongdong, few minutes walk to the train station. Hotel staff was extremely helpful and the rooms were although small, clean and comfortable.
I will definitely go back and stay if I have the chance! :)

Our room was clean and comfortable but pretty tiny. The bathroom was also tiny, the shower pressure was good but the tub was so small that the water just sprayed everywhere. It is in a good location though if you want to eat/shop, close to the subway station as well.

For a hotel of this price, I was really surprised by their attention to detail. The hotel is a convenient location yet not as swamped as the ones near the Myeongdong station. In fact, Euljiro 1 station is better if you travel to other parts of Seoul. The staff were always polite and willing to help.

Stayed here with family while visiting Seoul. Very comfortable, clean and at the center of town. Close to the metro and the service was great. Plus, I made the reservation by calling them from abroad. The hotel was very affordable and the staff was very helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
