Reviewed 22 April 2006

The service was quite good, typical of Korea and Japan. However, my room was rather shabby, and the bathroom smelled. I asked for a non-smoking room, but was told there were none available. There was a strong contrast with the luxurious (albeit 50 percent more expensve) room I had in Tokyo the following night. The Hotel Dongdaemun has a restaurant...

This hotel was ok. It looked like it had seen much better days and you could smell it in the air. However, it's in a very busy intersection of the city and sits right above the subway line. Very good location. The clerk at the front desk was not nice at all, and my friends and I didn't feel welcome....

This hotel is pretty much a regular Best Western. The room was okay, a little small but we've become used to that in Asian countries.

Neighbourhood Profile
Dongdaemun / Sindangdong
For shopping enthusiasts, Dongdaemun is a must visit. Enormous shopping centres – stacked with multiple levels of boutique and independent shops – offer the latest in Korean fashion, cosmetics, accessories, and other goods while prices are relatively low. The night shopping (between late night and early morning) is particularly well known here, making Dongdaemun a place where you can literally shop until you drop. If fashion isn't what you’re looking for, the long-running wholesale markets nearby sell everything from cloth to utensils at lower prices. The rows of food stalls that set up at night ensure shoppers get refueled, and foodies will enjoy checking out nearby Sindang-dong’s Tteokbokki Town as well as some non-Korean offerings from the Central Asian Village near Dongdaemun.
