Hotel choice - Myeongdong vs Hongdae
Save

Hi, we are deciding between Mercure Hotel Ambassador in Hongdae vs Lotte Hotel in Myeongdong. It's our first time, we would like to see the city sights, shopping, Kcosmetics and Kpop. Not too much into nightlife, maybe night market. Prefer close to public transpo. Our mother can walk slowly and for short distances. Maybe go to Nami Island, iti not confirmed yet. which hotel would you recommend? thank you for your replies

Except the location, which hotel do you think the better one is?

Hi the Mercure is better ranked on the Trip advisor list and I think it’s newer, but the Lotte has bigger rooms. But both seem very modern and nice

If you're with your older mother - definitely Lotte Hotel Myeongdong. Hongdae is cool but young and might get annoying with crowds and young uni kids etc.

Stay in Myeongdong is definitely better, like Michael said. Roads in myeongdong are generally flat and Hongdae has more inclined roads. If you stay in Lotte, subway line 2 is just there which takes you to many popular places. Line 4 is pretty close too.
