Great base for Myeongdong in the heart Seoul!
Excellent quality 4-star property right in the heart of Myeongdong for shopping, eating and buzz. We had a Junior Suite with separate toilet and bathroom area. Room is on the small side for a suite, but bed was comfortable and sitting area more than adequate for watching TV. Really liked the ambience of the tranquility every time we stepped through the revolving entrance door. But strangely, there was an unmistakable stench at the entrance for the last couple days while we were there. Breakfast is good, and Club Lounge access was brilliant with a wonderful view of the Myeongdong area, serving afternoon tea and apéro in the evening. We also had dinner at the Michelin-starred in house restaurant that was also very good. Only gripe was having to miss the breakfast on our last day due to an error printed on the given info sheet when we checked in.
