The location is good, just at the corner of Myeongdong, walking to shopping centre like Lotte is just 8 mins.
The hotel is nice and new, the staff is good especially the housekeeping staff. The things have to be improved are breakfast and recognition of platinum member.
The Nook restaurant offers breakfast until 10am, it is too early in my experience to other hotel. Also, the food varieties are not enough, refill is not on-time. The egg station is best.
The recognition of platinum SPG is just for the welcome points, and they just put me in the very low floor with the standard room, so far it is good experience to hear sound of the street near the heart of the city. I know the benefit and so I am satisfied.
It would be a nice try if you did not come this hotel before, for myself I will try other SPG/Marriott in my next visit.

Room Tip: Good location

Beyond the great location in Myeongdong area, close distance to 2 train lines and a very comfortable hotel, this place has the most amazing team that is fully committed to service at the highest level.

Special thanks to the Front Office Team - Danny Song, Elle Lee and Linda for giving my family and I such an unforgettable experience during this first visit to Seoul. From the moment we check in, we felt like special guests. Although it was only due to the room complications on the first night, you and your team went all out to make sure we are comfortable and we really felt appreciated and relaxed staying in Aloft Seoul Myeongdong.

Aloft and SPG Group should be proud to have such a team like yours. Well done and we are sure to come back again in the future.

Conveniently located near a stone's throw from eateries, street food and shopping at Myeongdong. 5-10 minutes walking distance to Myeongdong Station (blue line).

Excellent service for a mid-tier (to economical) place to stay.

Reasonable breakfast. Small but functional gym. Very clean, quiet and modern rooms.

Looking back I would have leveraged this location and pre-planned the trips via subway. Taxi drivers seem clueless (even with Korean addresses and phone numbers) -- and Google Maps doesn't work in Seoul.

Room Tip: Higher floor for a city view

My family and I are very satisfied. We stayed at Aloft Myeongdong for 1 whole week. The staff are very welcoming and speaks English. Special mention to Jen from conceirge, she is the most fluent English speaker among the staff and she was very helpful to us and has answered all our questions, queries about the locations and places we are going and all other concerns we had. What is lacking is a service that could take guests to other points of interest in Myeongdong area following a specific schedule (e.i. Myeongdong Station, etc.). Other hotels in Myeongdong area has that service and also a 24-hour housekeeping service. I once request for make up room at past 7pm but the staff said, there are no housekeeping service during those hours. The location is superb, accessible and close to the pick up and drop off point of Airport Limousine Bus. Ride bus number 6015 from Incheon Airport T1 or T2. The drop off point in Myeongdong is Ibis Ambassador Hotel and is 5 minutes walk to and from Aloft Myeongdong. The hotel is also 5 minutes walk to and from the main Myeongdong street food and shopping district. There are a lot of underground shopping and shopping malls across the street like Lotte Young, Lotte World, Duty Free Shinsegae to name a few. There is also a coffee shop beside the hotel that is open early morning. We arrived at the hotel before 8am and took breakfast at that coffee shop which is cheaper that hotel ala carte price. There are also 2 Starbucks nearby. 1 is at the post office and the other is as you walk towards Myeongdong street food and shopping district. It is both about 3 minutes walk from the hotel. There is a small grocery store nearby that is open until 11pm, it is the Lotte Market 999 and 7-11 convenience stores are closed to the hotel too. We just did not try ordering food at the hotel this is because of not so good reviews here at Trip Advisor. If you’re a family travelling with kids 12 years old and younger, I highly recommend the Urban room because aside from the mai. King size bed, the has a sofa bed, I think it’s queen size if you convert is from a sofa to a bed. Rooms are well-kept, stylish and modern. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family and will stay at Aloft Myeongdong when I visit Seoul again.

Location:
Right in front of the Myeongdong market. It takes only two.minutes to the market, which is the best place in Seoul.

Service:
Very courteous, sincere, and thoughtful. They provide you a card with the hotel name etc. In case you get lost. They also offer an early check-in without even being asked. I now understand why this hotel become the best hotel in Seoul.

Design:
Being the little sister of W Hotels, I did not expect anything less than this hotel delivers. Modern, unique, and whimsical (somehow this hotel seems a bit obsessed with horses?).

Bedroom:
Really comfy! So small and warm, make you feel like you are at home. Even though it not spacious, space just sufficient. Two large window gives you sufficient lights and great view to the busy traffic down there.

Bathroom:
The shower experience could be improved though. The pressure not really strong, and the temperature could drop down randomly. Imagine you take a hot shower and the water becomes cold for two seconds before it gets hot again.
BUT, they compensate it with a state of the art toilet. A pre-warm seat, a different type of washer (as most toilets in Korea did not provide washer) all it needs is music, to match Japan’s toilet. After a long day, it is such a pleasure to sit on the toilet and warm your thigh there.

Others:
The wardrobe and bathroom sharing the same sliding door. Means if you want to close the wardrobe, you need to left the bathroom open, and vice verse. This might not a big problem during the day. But at night, people like me cannot sleep with the bathroom door open. But if I close the bathroom door, the wardrobe will be left open, and the wardrobe light will automatically turn on. So I need to do some work at night to cover it, as I could only sleep in a pitch black room.

This property provides a water station in the hallway, where people could refill their own water bottle before they go to bed, or before they go outside. So thoughtful! This should be a green initiative by not provide an additional bottle of water to guests, as they could always fill their water by themselves.
They also provide laundry machine in the building. for the first time in my traveling history, I go back from holiday with a bag full of clean clothes.
You could also find the business center at the front desk, which could be used as a waiting lounge.

Will definitely come back!

Stayed: March 2018, travelled as a couple
