We stayed there for 7 nights and this hotel is in the heart of myeongdong.. Shopping, eating and even transport is so convenient.. Hotel is clean and staffs are very friendly.. I will stay there again next time if I am back to Seoul..

Only thing the hotel need to provide is toothbrush and toothpaste which some travelers do not bring..

The location is great and right in the heart of Myeongdong. We booked 2 non-smoking rooms. However when we arrived, the guy at the counter told us that there were NO non-smoking rooms in the hotel (really??) but instead upgraded us to a bigger room with a double bed and single bed but SMOKING. The stench in the air was quite bad and we had to open the windows to air the room but we were given the third floor so the noise was quite bad with opened windows until about 11pm at night. But a consolation was that the rooms were sound-proof with the windows fully closed. Overall, sheets and toilet were clean. Toilet design was abit flawed, my husband knocked his head against the headboard because it was too low. Location wise, 5 stars. Everything else, probably a 3.

Checked in quite early because korean flagged airlines arrives at 5;30am. Got to myeongdong via airport bus by 7:00am. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by the front desk person (woman) who apparently doesn't know how to smile. Good thing our spirits were lifted up by their security guard and bell boy. I asked if it would be possible to check in even an hour earlier only and she bluntly shut me down in a very rude manner. For 4 days, whenever we go down to the lobby, front desk staff do not care to greet guests that walk by. They don't even smile!
As for the room, we stayed in a deluxe room. Although it is relatively small (too small for people who intended to shop in myeongdong), it is clean and well kept. Breakfast buffet is not good at all. We only ate at the restaurant for 1 morning and never repeated it. Would I stay in another hotel around myeongdong in the future? Most probably so.

First off, the good. The location is really unbeatable. It is in the middle of Myeongdong. You are literally just a few steps away from all the eating, shopping and action that Myeongdong is famous for. There is a small convenience in the courtyard for those little things you need. The metro station is less than a 5 minute walk away and line 4 is one of the better subway lines to be if shopping is on your itinerary as Dongdaemun and Namdaemun are on the same line. Hotel service was also very prompt when needed. And free wifi in the room.
Now the ok. The hotel is in decent shape, the beds are ok, the fixtures are ok, the size of the room is ok. While the in-room free wifi is a nice touch, why then charge to use the desktop computer in the lobby?
And the bad. The AC did not work at all the several nights we stayed there. The average temp in the room was 25 degrees C, or 77 degrees F. The first night, we asked the hotel to take a look at it and they promptly arrived, but couldn't fix the issue and blamed it on the hotel being fully occupied and every room running AC. They provided a fan afterwards, but that's not the same. Not other attempt was made to resolve the issue thereafter.
If not for the AC issue, it would've been a great visit.

Great place to stay for shopping, close to good food too! Transportation: i.e train station (Myeong-dong station) is just a stone throw away. Convenient transfer to the airport by bus shuttle which is 10,000 won. Friendly and helpful hotel staff. comm24 hrs convenient store just next to hotel. Highly recommended and value for $$.

It is the best hotel in Myung-dong area. I've been to other hotels around Myung-dong area which looked nicer but the service and location did not satisfy me. However, Savoy provided my family an excellent service and the location was just perfect. The shopping and food area is just around the corners of hotel and the price is really good for its value. The hotel was clean and staffs were nice.

This is our 2nd time to stay here. We were here last year too. This is at the heart of Myeong Dong. Everything you need is just outside: food, shopping, subways, bus etc. Very helpful and friendly staff too.
