Hotel J Hill
Ranked #132 of 500 Hotels in Seoul
Reviewed 23 November 2011

This is a brand new hotel located in the middle of Myeongdong shopping street. The location is central, right in the middle of all the action. But it was very hard to find since the apparent location on the google map and all of the internet booking sites was way off when we booked it, and it took us over an hour to find the hotel when we got there. We had to call the hotel 3 times and enlist the help of a very kind local who literally walked us to the hotel. It is diagonally across from the Myeongdong Theater. I believe they have since then fixed the location of the hotel on Google map and all the internet booking sites, so now it may be accurate. Even the hotel staff themselves did not know where they were located - we asked them to mark the location for us on the downtown map, and one person had to ask another person, and then they marked the wrong place on the map.

When we showed up in early October, the hotel has opened but was still being renovated. The elevator was working sporadically due to all the construction, and at times we had to walk up and down 11 floors to get to our room. The rooms are TINY- it fits a bed and a small desk only, but the bathroom is surprisingly large - at over 50% the size of the room itself. It comes with all the basic amenities you need neatly packed into a tiny space- hairdryer, air conditioning, etc. If you are claustrophobic, I do not recommend you book this hotel. But we were hardly in our room and only used it to sleep at night, so it was quite adequate. The best part of the hotel really is its location. Also the price is decent given its excellent location. I anticipate the price will probably skyrocket once they become fully renovated and better advertised. To get there, you take the airport limousine bus to the Ibis Myeongdong stop and then it's a short 3 minute walk.

The hotel is on the same street as the Myeongdong Theater. Walking distance from the MRT station, Bus stop, shopping malls, Catholic church, convenience store -- everything. You are practically neighbors with 2 H&M stores, Forever21 and the newly opened Uniqlo flagship store which everybody is so crazy about. In the afternoon till late night, vendors line up the street selling various items as well as food. You'll definitely get your street food fix whenever you want to... Breakfast buffet is pretty decent, the hotel's resto is small tho so there can be a line/waiting time if you go towards the end of the breakfast hours (tip: be early!) We stayed at a double room, which is pretty small. Considering, however, that the hotel is relatively new, we didn't mind much since the facilities are comfy and the bathroom is nice. There's a flat screen tv but almost all channels are in Korean. The hotel occupies levels 9-13 of the building. Staff is excellent (tho more English lessons will be helpful) =)

Room Tip: Better get twin-sharing rooms if you want more space. (and especially if there are more than 2 guest...
