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.

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.

Location wins
Room was extremely small, but is to be expected in a super crowded district like Myeongdong. It doesn’t matter too much because there’s so much to do in Myeongdong you won’t be spending much time in your room anyway!

Small room for family with kids. Great location. Convenient

Fair 4.0
tiny rooms
this hotel was so tiny that we didn't even have space to open our luggage fully. the bathroom was also very small and the toilet gets wet when you shower. the staff didn't speak english and we had to pay a deposit of krw for the room key card which was unheard of in other hotels we've stayed in. the location was good, though, right in the middle of busy myeungdong
