Neighborhood
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighborhood 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 neighborhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighborhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.

Small size hotel in the busy shopping street of Myeongdong. Staff members are very helpful. Keep up the excellent service level. In fact some of the bigger hotels could learn a thing or two from this humble establishment. Great location too.

We stayed in a Standard Double room for 4 nights. Staff friendly and helpful. Location is ideal - shopping just further down the street, Myeongdong metro station just round the corner, food establishments everywhere. The airport shuttle stop is about 150m away, so that's a big

If cost is not an issue, book the Airport drop off from Klook but you will be charged under 'Night service' since your flights are pretty early. This is what I did for my trip previously when my flight departs at 8 am.

"Road facing"
"Air conditioning needs improvement as the thermostats kept turning off every now and then unless you put it at 21C"
"Clean and tidy"
"Choose bigger room. Otherwise no room for luggages."
"Request for higher floors since the street can get noisy at night"
