The style of hotel looks a bit classic. Overall the room was ok, comfortable and cosy. The best thing was it was located at Myeongdong area, take a walk to the street right behind the hotel to enjoy shopping. Other than that, there are numerous convenience stores and bakeries around. Basically you can get everything you want there.

I booked this hotel through agent. Originally I want to book standard double room but my agent can only book semi double room. I thought it should be ok as I also stayed in semi double room in Japan before. However the room is far away from acceptable. It was old and dirty. It was non-smoking but got strong smell...

Known to all taxi drivers is a plus, also being a few steps from Myeongdong, subway station, airport bus stop, and food alley few blocks away. We stayed on the 14th floor, the room looked in dire need of renovation. The switch for lights and air con are part of the night table that looks like radio dials from the...

Hotel is located in Myeongdong near Exit 10 of Myeongdong Station. Airport Limousine from Gimpo & Incheon stops near the hotel. Room is spacious for Triple Room and quiet. Hotel is clean but it is slightly old compared to the nearby hotels. Would recommend a stay here for the location and proximity to the subway and airport bus stop as...

It's close to a stop for the airport limousine bus (1 min walk). Right in front of the hotel, it is exit 10 of the Myeong-dong underground station. I find the location more pleasant that other hotels in the area located in the centre of Myeong-dong or other hotels located near the exit 6, 7 or 8 which is the...

I booked this hotel at the very last minute and they confirmed my booking instantly. I booked a standard room but it was so comfortable (king size bed, duvet cover, nice fluffy pillows, mini bars) and the best thing is that it is very convenient to Myeongdong. 2-3 minutes walk. Greatly recommend for convenience and easy access to shopping.

This is my second trip to Korea. I have stayed at the Sejong hotel twice. It's an older hotel and probably needs upgrades to the building to remain competitive. The hotel has a good location myeongdong shopping is just behind the shopping centre. The air conditioning in our room is not working and the room temperatures hovers between 24 to...

A good hotel to stay especially if you want to do a lot of shopping which is just a few blocks from famous street market. The breakfast was filling and had egg station and service was good. The rooms are a little dated but comfortable. The prices in their hotel restaurant were outrageously overpriced, just eat out before coming back...

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.
