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.

    Great location

    Clean hotel right in the center of Myeong-dong. Friendly staff, the hotel was small but appropriate for the price. It’s also very near myeongdong station.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Upon checking in, there was a strong smell like someone had smoked in the hotel room. I reflected this to the hotel staff and they came with an air freshener spray. After that, I found some mosquitoes in the bathroom area due to moisture and killed 3 of them. As I was preparing to unpack, I noticed more mosquitoes and asked the front desk. They said the hotel was at capacity and there were no rooms to change into. After 45 minutes of waiting for all mosquitoes to emerge, I had killed 6 fat and juicy (with blood) mosquitoes. I suspect that the mosquitoes came in through a window which was previously open. My total stay was 2 nights and I didn't end up getting bitten as I caught them all. The second day upon returning to the hotel, I noticed the smell again. I asked for air freshener again but the smell lingered (possibly seeped into the walls). All in all, there are issues with the hotel (old) however location is very convenient. I do however question the star rating of this hotel as I see other hotels with this rating with much better quality overall as I booked this hotel based on this rating.

    Great location!

    Great location in the heart of Myeongdong. Just one block off the main road, so noise wasn't an issue. It's about a 20 min walk to Seoul Station with plenty of shopping and food right out the front door. Rooms were on the smaller side with very comfortable beds (603). Staff was very friendly and the front desk spoke good English. Our only complaint was the size of the bath towels....very small.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I travelled solo but had booked a double room. The room was simple and possibly more roomy than a single room for me. Most important it is near the Airport Limo stop and Myeongdong station as well as in Myeongdong shopping area itself. There is a lift so bringing baggage is not a hassle. I arrived very early in the morning and staff allowed me to check-in early at a small price.
