I had a decent stay, but my room smelled of stale cigarettes despite requesting a non-smoking room. When I told the front desk when checking out, the individual didn't seem to care, suggesting a prior occupant smoked when he shouldn't have had. While that may be true, customer service could have been better; a "tough luck" comment after giving you...

This hotel was good but a couple things stopped me from rating it higher. The good: The room was exceptionally clean and I liked the bathroom setup where the sink was in the room and there were simply a door for the shower and another door for the toilet. It makes the room more functional. Staff were extremely friendly and...

staff is very courteous and hotel in great location. The only drawback was the hotel let some of their "uncivilized" hotel guests to pile up all the garbage outside their room in the common area along the corridor which was really an eye sore and bring down the hotel rating.

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.
