Such a happy hotel!!!”

It was my first time in Seoul, and I was traveling with girl friends. We wanted an affordable but nice hotel that's close to Myeongdong's shopping area, and we successfully found one! aFIRST Hotel Myeongdong is definitely a place I'll recommend to anyone visiting Seoul! Location is great. While you'll have to walk about 5-10 minutes to the shopping street, it's all good because the surrounding areas of the hotel won't bore you. There are lots of restaurants--and I really mean "lots"! Getting around is also quite easy once you get the hang of it. :) As for the rooms, they have the PERFECT room for three people! We got their Triple Room with three separate single beds, which are super comfy by the way! Room is spacious enough for three girls with a lot of items. Room also is very new and exceptionally clean. Room has many mirrors--something I always look for, and has a good-sized window which can bring in more than sufficient sunlight when you're tired of using fake light. Haha. Room design is also very pleasant--simple but stylish and refreshing to the eyes. Also, when I stay in hotel rooms, I get a feel of its aura and this one's definitely a positive one! My friends and I, after we were done with the trip, would always talk about how we miss this particular room we stayed in. Would definitely love to be back in Seoul and stay in this hotel. <3 P.S. They also have a weighing scale for your luggage at the lobby!!! No need to worry about getting overweight bags!

Very nice hotel at Myeongdong, Seoul”

Staying at aFirst with family for 4 nights on our first time Seoul visiting, the hotel gave us very good impression, very clean room and comfortable bed, very closed to Subway station and Myeongdong shopping area, but in a quite street - Super location! Around hotel, you can easily find a lot of restaurants, hotel shuttle bus is also convenient to go many main places like Seoul Station, Nam Shan Tower cable car, etc., Hotel Staffs are all nice to response all our requests!

Good Hotel Location and Value for money”

The hotel is about 5-8 mins walk from Jonggak Station exit 5, City Hall Station and Euljiro 1-ga Station Exit 2. It took 8 mins walk to Myeong-dong and Young Lotto. Hotel provided shuttle bus service to a few locations (Airport Bus stop, Seoul Station, Myeong-dong, Gwanghwamun and etc) and Seoul tours information. Room Service is good, bed is comfortable and room is spacious.

We booked for twin bed room for 1 adult and 1 child (10 year old). The room was equip with chargers for all sorts of brand cell phone/devices. They have "meet & greet" tea /coffee and cookies Mon-Fri from 5pm-7pm. It great location 15 mins walk to City Hall, and 10 minutes walk to Lotte Department store & Myeongdong underground shopping. Many eateries near by, Paris Baguette, 7Eleven, ect. They also offer shuttle service to near by locations, Seoul Station, Namsa Tower, Gyeongbokgung Palace, however even with the set displayed schedule, you need to let the staff know. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only thing was the "aromatherapy" scent as you enter the hotel, it can be strong, and the walls are a bit thin as we can hear other occupants close the door or talk loudly in the hall way. But overall great deal, location and staff.

Great location & family rooms.”

The hotel is perfectly situated near restaurants (just across the street), coffee shops, barbecue and also, perfect for shopping. The Lotte Department store is a 5 minute walk and also, Myeong dong Shopping strip. There are many palaces within minutes walk from the hotel, too. There is a shuttle from the hotel that will drop guests either to the business districts or shopping area, however, you will need to find your own way back. There are rooms ideal for families, ex. couples with 2 children or even 4 adults, see the family room, with 2 double beds and 2 bunk beds. There is a rooftop bar, Japanese restaurant, and another restaurant bar on the 2nd floor, but, lots of better options to eat out.

Mitch from PH”

Value for Money: We got a good deal for a triple room since this is off-peak (summer) season. Still it was a steal compared to other hotels. Location: The hotel is situated in Myeongdong but not in the shopping area which is about a 10-15 min walk for a big guy like me. Very convenient to walk to the nearest metro or bus stop. There are nearby 7/11 or GS 25 stores, near drinking places. The only thing that irked me was when getting a cab from the Myeongdong shopping district though near the access to the hotel is from only one-side so your car-ride could actually be longer than walking or about the same. Cleanliness: Hotel is new, nice and clean. I love the smell when you enter the lobby, smells like teeming plant life in a good way. Staff: Only encountered staff in the lobby. Generic, helpful but not too informative or cordial to be a factor to your trip. Facilities: Just visited the lobby and hallways. Lobby got seats and space. Clean Water/Ice station in your floor.

Little gem hidden in and around Myeongdong ”

The hotel is hidden 2 blocks away from Grevin Museum (which locates opposite of Lotte Hotel Seoul). There are 3 ways to the hotel, from Cheonggyecheon Stream (from the back lane behind K-style hub), from Euljiro-1-ga Station (Exit 1), a short walk about 5 or 10 min and from the side lane off Grevin Museum. Decent hotel with basic facilities and amenities. Nothing to complaint for the price paid. The hotel is surrounded with alot of eateries and convenient stores. Finding foods never an issue. The only complaint I have was the "pillar" in the room (I booked the deluxe double) that blocked the walking space in the 24sqm room. Kind of weird. The hotel offers free shuttles to key business buildings and to shopping areas. For those who are heading to the airport, I would suggest to take the free shuttle from hotel to Seoul Station at 10am, 1230pm, 2pm, 3.30pm an 4.30pm (Weekdays) and 9.30am, 10.50am, 1pm, 4.20pm, 3.40pm and 7pm (Weekend). The journey is about 10 mins or less depending on traffic. Then head straight to AREX departure hall (Level B2) for the express train to the airport. The one-way AREX train ticket is 8,000KRW and the express train takes 43 min from Seoul to Incheon (every 30 min), 10 min walk to airport check-in counter at Incheon Airport). The airport limousine bus stop for 6701 (16,000KRW one way) is quite closed to the hotel, yet a distance for us to walk, especially with heavy luggages. The estimated travel journey is around 90 min, depending on traffic condition and also how full is the each limousine bus. If the bus load is full, you have to wait for another 20 to 25 min.

Excellent Stay at aFIRST Myeongdong! One of My Best Experiences Ever”

Pros: - Excellent location - 10 minutes walk from Myeongdong shopping district, Namdaemun shopping district, Shinsekai and Lotte Departmental stores. 7 minutes walk from nearest train station. Wide range of good restaurants nearby that open till late. - Fantastic amenities provided in the hotel (laundry facilities, ice water dispenser) and in the room (big HD TV screen which allows casting, and also good wifi) - Decent sized room, carpeted floor and comfortable bed. - Good city view. Grateful to hotel staff for agreeing to provide a room on highest floor - Excellent service provided by hotel staff. I was travelling with my fiancee and planned a surprise proposal for her in the hotel room. Hotel staff went out of the way to decorate our room with balloons and ribbons; and also to take photos for us - all done perfectly on short notice. Kudos to them! Staff was also willing to answer questions anytime and provided helpful travelling advice Cons: - Fridge was not working very well

Hotel's room is really clean and nice. Staffs are also very friendly. What I love about a First Hotel Myeongdong is it really easy to access from Incheon Airport. You can take the limousine bus to the New Kukje Hotel stop and walking to the street next Seoul Finance Center. And it's not that far from Cheonggyecheon, Gwahungmun and Shopping Street in Myeongdong.

We were disappointed because The room was too small . And i thought it has a bath tub. Coz I saw it on the site. The location was hard to find. It was hidden besides on other tall bldgs. And y the bfast was too pricey and u can have is just very light meal? Y?! And how come the gentlemen in front office doesn't know all the locations of historical places. They at least have an idea coz there are lot of travelers visiting korea. . In laundry area I had to figure it out myself how to use it. Coz besides from they don't know how to explain in English they don't know also how to use it. This was my second time in Seoul . And Well what I like about the hotel it was near in myeongdong and restaurants.

Great hotel”

Just spent 10 days at the hotel. Everything about the hotel was A+ except one little issue in the beginning but was quickly resolved. From easy of finding, check in, daily service, facility to check out was all great and as expected. It’s continently located close to many busy stops, subway station and easy walking distance to Myeongdong, city hall..etc. *one quickly resolved issue. So apparently hotel has central air that is controlled by them and not the control in the room. First night, temperature never went below 25c(77F)even tho thermostat was set to 22c, which was too hot for me to sleep, especially since it’s so humid this time of the year. Next morning I spoke to front desk and they “lowered” the setting to the room. Rest of the stay was set at comfortable 22c(71F). In summer, When you check in and you don’t feel the room cooling after about 10 mins, you’ll probably have to request to adjust the temperature. Overall, I would stay again.

Excellent hotel in good location”

Hotel is located in a quiet area near Myeongdong. Has good facilities for washing clothes and gym. Only one bad point is the shuttle bus driver when we left the hotel to transit to the airport at the Airex, which he dropped us at the main road despite the rain and a drop zone near the train terminal at Seoul station.

Awesome”

Located in the quiet area of Myeongdong which I appreciate. Surrounded by many restaurants and cafes, and a short distance from Eujiro Station. It was also a short walking distance to MyeongDong. My room was spacious and had sufficient space to put up to 3 luggages. There are also USB charging ports available. Hotel is also near a KAL Limousine station that rides towards Incheon Airport. All in all, a really great stay.

Great for a first time visit to Seoul”

Whilst not at the heart of Myeongdong, it was only a 15-20min walk over (or you can take the shuttle). The location is great as it is located on a street with many dining options. The complimentary shuttle service to several stops near major tourist attractions was also a pleasant surprise. Would definitely return should we visit Seoul again.

Excellent Location”

Hotel is within 5 minutes walk to 2 subway stations, Myeongdong shopping street and airport limousine bus-stop. The good connectivity made it very easier to travel to other places of interest. Room was comfortable enough. The limited furniture in the room made it spacious for us to open up 3 medium size luggages at the same time. The only disadvantage is that we find the wardrobe space a little small especially if you have a lot of winter clothing to hang. Will stay here again if we come to Seoul!

Excellent Hotel”

My family and I stayed ten nights in a family room and loved this hotel. The room was spacious enough and well designed. The hotel itself was hard to find initially, perhaps management could do more to guide people from the subway or airport bus. Once you check-in, you will realize how great the location is. It is a 5 minute walk to the subway, Lotte department store (check out the food area in the basement) and the Myeongdong shops, among others. There are so many restaurants nearby as well and we always felt safe walking at night. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location for food and shopping”

Walking distance to Myeongdong shopping district (Euljiro station side) and near Namdaemun market where we bought cosmetics and cheap snacks to take home. There's also a Lotte Duty Free nearby. The hotel is surrounded by all kinds of restaurants (seafood, grilled meat, chicken barbecue, etc.) so you'll never run out of choices and that was great for our group. Our room was clean and had enough space for our luggages. Staff was helpful and allowed us to extend our stay for a very reasonable fee. We'll definitely book here again!
