Place is conveniently located at the center of myeongdong so you are very near the shopping center and food stalls/restaurants. It's also a few minutes walk from the metro station. Room is well-cleaned but very small. Same with the shower. Towels provided are very small much like your normal face towels so i suggest you bring your own bath towel....

The single room i stayed in was better than what it should have been for. With the great location, literally in the biggest shopping district and home to the greatest street food, it is what any tourist could ask for. Receptionist was also nice and can speak English. There's also room cleaning service on request which is really convenient. Although...

Located right off a shopping street in Myeongdong, when you exit the building, the original Myeongdong Kyoja branch is on your right, Yoogane is on the left, Artbox is further down the road and Myeongdong Cathedral is right behind, accessed by a 'secret alley'. Great if you're doing a lot of shopping in Myeongdong and want to put down your...

Stayed at their 2 bunk beds room. It is more spacious then expected. Staffs are very helpful and caring. Explained clearly the "guest rules" at check-in thus knowing exactly what to do in regards to the change of bedsheets and towels. Nice team!

Location is very good because it is right inside Myeongdong shopping area. Easily within reach of eateries and all cosmetics shopping. The rooms are exactly what you'll see in the photos.

Spent a few days in Seoul during Chinese New Year. It's a good location for those who enjoy shopping and street food in Myeongdong, specially if you don't mind about the room size. Easily accessible from Incheon Airport by bus for a fee. Good WiFi connection in the room as well.

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.
