Stayed here for a few nights for my first time in Seoul and I was blown away by the convenience and location of this boutique hotel. Despite being built in the 60s, the property is completely remodeled from the top down. Rooms are tiny by US standards as a regular room was a few sq ft shy of 20 sq...

I have stayed here on 4 occasions, 6 nights each before the renovation, & 3 nights each last April & May. I have to admit that I have enjoyed my stays a bit more during the first 2 stays 3-4 years ago. I have stayed at both standard room & deluxe room on my own last year, I found the...

My family and friends stayed in this hotel last Dec. The location is superb, 1 min walk to the subway. The hotel lobby is nicely done up and there's a massage chair for guests to use. About 10 of us travelled together, 4 children and 6 adults. The rooms were well made, towels were changed daily and water replenished promptly....

Conveniently located with eateries, shopping & convenient stores surrounding the area. Subway train station was also within 5 mins walk. Breakfast was decent & coin laundry came in handy. There's even umbrellas available at the concierge when it's raining. Overall, quite a nice experience & will come back again.

Location: You cant ask for more in terms of location - it's in the heart of Myeongdong which means close to everything--food and shopping at our doorstop! The ground floor entrance is linked to Starbucks. Room: We had a family suite on the 2nd floor - rooms are equipped with both heater and airconditioner, we also have a bathtub in...

Fantastic location - 4 minutes' walk from Airport Limousine Bus Stop at Ibis Myeondong & Euljiro 1-ga Subway Station, food and shopping at our doorstop! Since Myeongdong is now a No-Smoking Zone, smokers can find the nearest smoking booth 3 minutes away! Near main road and everything, but still secluded enough for peace and quiet. The ground floor entrance is...

This hotel has a good location that is tucked in a quieter part of myeongdong. Staff are friendly. Hotel room is neat and simple yet it is quite decently equipped with all that a traveller needs. Breakfast is great, with a few very nice local dishes and the usual eggs sausage bread salad etc. Staff are polite and it is...

I was only in Seoul for a short visit and chose the Metro for its convenient location in Myeongdong - just a few steps from the Metro line and a short walk for night shopping and Department Stores.

Although the standard queen rooms are small, the location, facilities and service from the front desk and security post more than made up for it. Front desk staff speak English and were forthcoming in helping to attend to our enquiries. Location is just a few steps from exits 5 and 6 of the Euljiro 1 station. Myeongdong station is about...

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.
