Profile: Myeongdong

Profile: Myeongdong

Myeongdong is a vibrant shopping district situated southwest of the City Hall in Jung. It’s one of the most visited areas in Seoul, and is a great spot to shop for upmarket brands or catch a fashion show in the spring or summer. This is a place where people come to see and be seen, and it’s a great spot to people-watch over some ox-bone soup or oyster pancakes.

The Gothic Myeongdong Cathedral is a stunning building that dates from 1894, and provides a tranquil place for reflection, while the bustling Namdaemun Market is the largest traditional market in Seoul.

8.4.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Best location for shopping. Myeongdong markets downstairs, lotte department and duty free across the road. Many food options. Airport bus drop off right outside the hotel. Free hotel shuttle service to Namsan Tower and few other locations. Rooms are OK. If your out all day and only back to the room to rest then it's fine. The hotel is rated a 3/4 Star anyways. For the room rate, location and convenience this hotel has great Value. This is the second time to stay here.

    Nice Clean Modern.

    Nice clean hotel, recently renovated. The room is a little small but normal for Korea. Really bad pillows, but the rest of the place is very good. The location is amazing. That's why you stay there. Would be nice if they helped with airport transfers. All they do is point to a bus station. Not really very helpful.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We had a 20 hour layover flight in Korea during January, so we booked this hotel in Myeongdong. We enjoyed our stay! Location: The airport bus brought us straight to the outside of the hotel. (Make sure you double check the airport bus #) It was like a 1 minute walk to the Myeongdong shopping street! Super convenient! Check in/out: The staff were very friendly! They guided us how to buy airport bus tickets. Room Condition: Everything was very clean in the room. They had all necessities, AND slippers! The only thing that I would want to ask to improve is the temperature of the room. We were not able to adjust the heater, so it was a bit stuffy. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again when we go to Korea again!
