Best Western Premier Gangnam

Pleasantly surprised!

The breakfast buffet was great, and I loved the bedding--I had a great night's sleep. I also utilized the gym, but only wish it had a water cooler in there. The location was also awesome since the KAL limousine takes you right to the hotel.

L7 Myeongdong

Beautiful Property in Myeongdong!

As my first hotel in Asia EVER, I am very glad I chose this one! At check in, Grace was super nice and very enjoyable to talk with. It was a very nice introduction to my first stay in Korea. The original intention for my journey was just to be on the Delta 747-400 retirement flight on the 19th of December, and buy some holiday gifts from Kukje Electronics Center. But after receiving a warm welcome by the entire staff, it quickly became much more than that. After our discussions, I made it to the N Seoul Tower, and tried lots of delicious Korean food all across the Myeongdong district. As for my room (1207) it was in fantastic condition, and perfectly clean. The in-room clock is also really cool! You can hear a little road noise at night, but it is expected--and did not take away from my enjoyment of the property. Having a coffee shop downstairs was also a great help for when other restaurants had closed, and I needed somewhere to grab a bite to eat late at night. All in all, I really enjoyed the unique charm of this hotel--and I hope I can return someday for a longer stay.

metro Hotel

Highly recommend this hotel to foreigners

First trip to Korea and wanted to stay in Myeongdong because it is the best place to be. Tons of shopping and restaurants. Very comfortable for foreigners too as there are many western restaurants in the immediate area if you are unwilling to try Korean food. The hotel is beyond wonderful and offered breakfast even though we didn't include that with our reservation. Breakfast is different each morning and offers Korean and western options. The staff is immensely friendly and most speak perfect English if you are ever having trouble understanding something. Our room was incredibly comfortable, but the only thing was it did not have a view. We unfortunately we're on the side facing another building, but probably could have asked for one. Would absolutely go back.

Hotel Skypark Central Myeongdong

Nice hotel close to the shopping area

Hotel room is small as expected. Just 1 min walk to the shopping area and restaurants, 3 mins to subway station. Hotel provides 3 different shuttle bus lines to Dongdaimum, Seoul station and Shilla dutyshop.
