This hotel reminded me of great memories being in the hospitality industry. TLDR: Overall, a congenial, convenient and cozy stay!

I checked in late on Feb 27, 2024 in the evening and a cute and nice lady checked me in around 10pm. Unfortunately I could not get her name. Upon check in, I was given a welcome drink token! It's awesome that the check in area is at the bar and food buffet. They have a foosball table and arcade machines to play some retro games!

The room is small, which is expected when I reviewed the room size online, but I think it was cozy and there was enough room for myself. The layout was great (City View, 1 Queen Bed configuration) and the TV in the room was bigger than I thought. It was perfect for me being a solo traveler, but it may be a tight fit for a couple unless you book the bigger rooms. The room itself can also be voiced activated. I had fun changing the air conditioner temperature via voice or closing the lights, etc. The hotel and the room smelled great and is obviously themed around a certain grapefruit scent. I was spoiled by the auto-flushing toilet + bidet combo. It was too comfortable during this really cold time (end of February into March.) I was spoiled by the laundry that was INCLUDED (and the humor with the laundry sign, iykyk). The washer and dryer are NOT coin operated and does not cost you anything extra. The washer was auto-loaded with detergent. The only thing would be dryer sheets if you care about cloth static, but honestly, this convenience is missed in too many hotels. The breakfast buffet does cost extra, but the selection was great. The food does change slightly each day but the taste was great for a buffet.

Feb 28, one of the tall and beautiful front desk agent for the morning crew, Pela, was very helpful in assisting with currency exchange and answering some of my questions. Wendy was a jolly lady who helped with the breakfast buffet and bartended a delicious mimosa welcome drink.

Feb 29, around 7pm, a handsome gentleman, Sun, assisted with some questions about the welcome drinks and the next day, Jane, one of the concierge was very helpful in calling a taxi and assisting me with my luggage.

The atmosphere was fun and bright. The location was amazing with nightly street vendors for food and other items within a few minutes of walking. Plenty of stores nearby and getting tax free deductions is hassle free in this area of Seoul. I felt very spoiled compared to the location I went to afterwards. Overall, I would consider Moxy Myeongdong an extremely high on my list to stay if I go back to Seoul, South Korea.

I stayed in Moxy Myeongdong a week after it opened. Location was easy to get to and walking distance from Myeongdong Exit 5.
Room was clean and modern. We were able to access the lift and room using a mobile key on the Marriott app which was cool.
Bathroom had toilet seat with warmer, bidet AND auto flush.
Bed was comfortable and clean. Comforter was fluffy and warm. Side of the bed offered USB ports AND light switches so you didn’t have to leave the bed to off the lights.

TV in the room was HUGE and offered a wide array of channels as well as the function to cast your device onto the screen (Netflix, YouTube, Spotify etc)

Room had an abundance of hooks, making hanging our jackets, coats and bags during winter a breeze.

Reception at 4th floor offered seating area and instant noodles for purchase. Perfect for supper!
CU convenience store located within the building as well for last minute purchases.

Lots of eateries downstairs and walking distance to main Myeongdong walking street. Money changer conveniently located opposite the hotel with good rates as well.

Front desk and concierge were fluent in English and very helpful anytime of the day.

Very impressed at this new hotel and I can’t wait to be back.

This is our fourth time staying at the Moxy hotel within a year and we enjoy the staff and amenities. The room rates are reasonable with a centralized location that makes it convenient to use the subway for travel. The staff are consistently customer focused and very pleasant. My only critique is the convenience store attached to the property. I usually pick up snacks at the CU store but this particular female worker pushed me as I must have been taking too long or was in her way while she was stocking products. It wasn’t strong enough as I was able to keep my balance but nonetheless a disappointment. I hope the CU owner reviews their March 31 morning CCTV footage and provide training that physical contact with customers should not be tolerated. While this has left a bitter taste for travel with me and my son, I plan on frequenting Moxy in the future.
There are a number of eateries and stores nearby and we’ve felt very welcomed.

This was our first time staying at Moxy. We arrived early and the reception greeted us with the big welcome smile. She asked whether we wanted to check-in now or waited until our room’s ready. We didn’t ask for an upgrade but they allocated us to the spacious corner room with the view of the tower! It was a very nice upgrade. We could only stay for one night as we need a gym and a pool and they don’t have them.
The room is compact, efficient but they’ve got everything we need. Chairs, table, drawers and safety deposit box under bed. Chairs and table are basic, it was a bit uncomfortable if you have to work. There was a laundry and ironing room that you can use at level 5.
Housekeeping, bartenders and all staff that we encountered made us feel welcome. Thank you ladies and gentlemen at Moxy, keep up the good work!

Compact room with enough space and clever design of the hanging bar as Moxy dna. Small lobby but there are music, books, bar and game to enjoy with friends and kids. Friendly staff. Location is really good.

Unfortunately, there are insects in my room kind a bathroom insects or something, when I told the staff she said that maybe due to hot and humid weather lately.

Overall is good and impressive. However, being Marriott elite may not give any more priority or interesting benefit here. And I found that booking through another site may get more benefits with cheaper or equal price. So no need to book direct, recommend to compare the price and benefits before you book.

For my point of view , this is a new trend of hotel, chic, colorful and creative designed. Location is a great as located in Myeongdong ( opposite Shinsege ) the same building with Le Meridien. Room is not spacious and also not too small with comfy bed and good wifi. I really love their bathroom which is a new trend of white and black instead of something glossy or shiny from stainless tap. Friendly and helpful staff from concierge till front desk 👍

Great location, had the family room with 4 bunk beds and kids really enjoyed it. And free video games in lounge!

Check in staff were very professional & friendly. Shares services with LeMeriden Hotel which is a plus. Valets very helpful in arranging transportation to airport. Hotel also had free self service laundry which is big plus (however long waits only 3 all in one machines which took on average 2 hours to complete cycle).

Would definitely stay here again, steps to everything!

It is right in the heart of Myeongdong's action and close to the Lotte and Shinsigae department stores. The road and pedestrian entrances are on B1 and reception is on 4/F at the bar. A 2nd set of elevators takes you up to your room, which was clean although a bit narrow. The heating was on at full blast while the blanket was thick and comfortable, but the pillows were a bit thin. The highlight is the free laundry facilities on 5/F with both washers and dryers.

Just stayed for a fun staycation at the new Moxy Seoul (Myeongdong) right in the heart of downtown Seoul. We were upgraded to a family room with two queen beds - just perfect for our family of 4 though very small. The continental breakfast was delicious and part of our welcome gift as Bonvoy Titanium members. Staff were very kind and friendly and the location allowed us to hit many highlights of the city easily via walking or subway.

Always love the vibe and energy of the Moxy brand and this hotel did not disappoint. Definitely recommend!

Likes: Location. Location. Location. Trust me. The retaurant/bar is small but it has a great trendy vibe. Complimentary drinks. Complimentary laundry, which btw is a great place to meet travellers and hear their stories even if it's a for a few mins. Convenient store. Staff is friendly. We enjoyed the Fussball and free Arcade games, it was such a long time since I played Streetfighter. TigerUpperCut hehehe
Dislikes: Room is very small for the price. The café wasn't very inviting but probably not their fault as there are so many other options just a stone's throw away. No international sockets, luckily they had 2 usb sockets.
