Navigating narrow side streets whose names we couldn't read would have daunted us, but not knowing this beforehand sure made our first-time visit to Seoul that much more exciting! We thought we were booking Irene Hotel (a whole building) located near a corner of a major road in Jung-Gu, not its sister hotel which occupied only two floors of another...

The location must be the best asset of this hotel, but in our thoughts it didn't dissapoint in any other area either. Our room certainly wasn't too small and we could easily spread both our luggages on the floor and still move around. Sure it was smaller than some hotels we've been to but unlike other rewievers, we didn't feel...

Sleep quality acceptable. Just that one of the nights, heard people outside quarelling and knocking on the thin walls.

United lost my luggage somewhere between SF and Seoul (or TSA screwed it up) and I stayed here hoping the luggage would show up before I took the KTX to Daegu. It was $48 for the night. Small room, no real room for luggage, but so what, you get what you pay for. I slept fine. It is only a...

As many reviews have mentioned, the location is great. Walking distance to myeondong, takes about 15mins. And, it is about 5mins walking distance to metro station. The room size is really small, and the cigarette smell in the room is bad. Am very glad that I am only staying for 1 night in this hotel. The weird part of the...

In the midst of one of the most vibrant areas of one of the most vibrant cities in the world. The location is fantastic, close to the airport bus and surrounded by restaurants and bars. The room was clean. That's as good as it gets though. The room was tiny, so small that there wasn't enough floor space to open...

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

Neighbourhood Profile
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.
