The Royal Hotel Seoul is located in the heart of the old part of town in Seoul. It is a high-rise building with great views from the upper floors. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms are spotless. There is a Japanese style toilet seat, which adds to the comfort. The beds are comfortable even if the room itself...

The hotel is well situated on the heart of Myeongdong shopping district but yet, not too noisy fr the shopping crowd. Price is reasonable for its comfort and excellent location. However, take note that though advertisement states 1. Free airport shuttle; it means only 2 trips daily. 2. Free breakfast; it means per stay; ie 1 time for the entire...

Wonderful hotel! great location, quick courteous service! In the middle of a nice shopping district close to the stream. Nice street food stalls at night. Very vibrant location, highly recommended ! Club lounge has light fare and drinks available for most of the day might be worth your extra payment

Location was great location to downtown shopping, subway and street markets, however the room was very small and narrow having too much furniture stuffed into a small room, very convenient airport shuttle with various arrival and departure times available though, would recommend based on location and amenities. Avoid the 30+ dollar breakfast on the 21st floor, instead go to the...

We recently stayed in this hotel during a business trip to Seoul. The hotel is located in Myengdong area, which is located about 90mins from Incheon airport. We were hoping to take the limousine bus service from the airport to the hotel, but unfortunately there was a demonstration in that area and the bus service was unavailable. We then ended...

Located right in the middle of things in Myeongdong, the night markets start literally a few steps from your front door. Highly recommend eating your way through these on one or two evenings.

If you are looking for an affordable accommodation with great service in Myeongdong, this is probably the best you will find! I was worried it would be noisy, due to being in the heart of the shopping district, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. Our rooms were clean and serviced daily. The staff were cordial and spoke good...

Perfect location, superb service, best price --- Royal Hotel got all these magnificently for us. It was so easy to find, gave us an upgrade after a very late arrival at 2am, and all for the price of a hotel with lower category.

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.
