They have free shuttle to certain places as shown in the pictures. Fantastic location as the myeongdong night market is right behind the hotel and there's a shortcut to there; and the MRT station is just outside the hotel. The airport limousine stops right in front of the hotel too, bus number 6015 and cost 14k won. What I dislike...

We love the location of the hotel and the hotel staff were polite. What was disappointing was that during our stay, the water and electricity was shut for maintenance at 2am on 13th May. Even though a notification was issued a day before, we would really appreciate if such information was provided when we booked the hotel or during check-in....

Location was excellent. Very near the hotels are the subway going to various places and the underground shopping centers. Customer service personnels were very helpful. No bellboy, have to carry own luggage to the 19th flr. Aircon was centralized, so had to call frontdesk all the time to adjust the room temperature.

Staying in Myeongdong / Namdaemun

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.
