          Rate very good for location. Namdaemun market is on the other side of the street. About 300m to Myeongdong area, about 1km to Seoul Tower, 15 walking minutes to Hoehyeon subway station. Recommend to solo traveler. Small room but ehhh... for the price.

          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
