To the left is Namdaemum, to the right (and in front) is Myeongdong. Behind is Namsan Tower. It's only 2 min walk from Myeongdong...

Was here for a trip in June. Location of the hotel is superb! Within 2mins walk from exit 4 of myeongdong station. Highly recommended!! It's the exit that's less crowded, so you won't hear noises from the hotel rooms as well. Love our stay here!
