Pleasant 5-nights stay”
Location for DH Naissance hotel is good, only 5mins walk to train station and many shops are located nearby for shopping, very convenient. The General Manager, Mindrum was very kind enough to lead us to find a few eateries on the 1st day when we reached. He also included a spectacular free night tour for us to some sightseeing places that normally tourists doesn't know. Hotel also serves us free “pizza, chicken or beer” to choose from. I would like to compliment on the hotel’s hospitality too as their staff are friendly and also attended to us promptly. We were also upgraded to a bigger premium room for the 4 of us. Definitely a pleasant 5-nights stay for us. We will go back to them when we visit Korea in the future again. Thank you Mindrum and your team! :)
Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It's something our staff takes great pride in, so we value your feedback. We hope you will visit us again.
Senior Solo Traveller”
I would highly recommend DH Naissance Hotel. The room was very clean and fully equipped with what is necessary AC, mini refrigerator, complimentary bottled water, tea, TV, bath/ shower and toilet/bidet. They served a very good complimentary buffet breakfast. The hotel is also surrounded by many restaurants, shops, markets and convenient stores. It is 5 min walk to the subway. All the staff at the hotel were very welcoming, courteous and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, there were no communication problems as all the staff spoke at least two languages, I can’t praise the staff highly enough. A special thank you to Charlie and Marco (my heroes) between them encouraged and help me work out the train journeys to various tourist attractions/places to visit and for making my first visit to Seoul a wonderful and stress free experience, especially for someone who traveled for the first time alone at the age of 69 to Seoul. I can’t wait to visit Seoul & stay at DH Naissance again.
dear Magdalena! its so good to hear from you again and we are very glad that you had such a wonderful experience stay in the hotel! Of course we are happy to help you with all the directions/places and i hope Seoul was nothing short but beautiful memories for you. We truly hope to see you again ! Have a wonderful merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
DH Niceness ”
Thank you DH NAISSANCE for accommodating us on early arrival time for free. Good breakfast, nice room, easy access...highly recommended to my family and friends! kudos DH NAISSANCE! hope to see you again... :) The room is well structured. The amenities and helpful appliances are outstanding. There were LG home products such as: Tromm Styler which irons out your clothes by steaming in a closet, Air washer which clears the air from the fine dust coming from China and humidifies the room as well. There's floor heater, PC, refrigerator (which gets refilled everyday with bottles of water), safe, huge TV, and a lot more, just check the huge list of things they have before booking. The separation of the bathroom and the toilet room is a huge plus for us, it kept the toilet room smelling good since the reed diffuser will have a little room to diffuse to. The bathroom has a nice jacuzzi that massaged us from a long tiring day of walking around seoul. There were hanging lotions, shampoos and soap. The breakfast is nice. It didn't matter that it was regularly the same. All of the choices in the breakfast buffet is delicious. The milk used on their cereal is I think the best in seoul since it's the best one we've tasted. The kimchis are on the sweeter side and favors our filipino tastebuds. The pizza from the pizza pub on 2nd floor is very good that we can't find a quick alternative here in the Philippines. It's better than yellow cab given the same price point. The location is I think the best there is, better than Myeongdong actually. The Myeongdong like market outside the hotel is authentic and not for tourist pleasing therefore, you'll just see koreans roaming around compared to Myeongdong which is full of tourist and expensive things. The hotel is very near to the subway station, that is I think a 2 minutes walk. The staff are friendly and all can speak English. They will really help you at anything you need, even the most unusual ones. The assistant Manager helped
Good afternoon Dear Corazon, such a nice name! with the spanish meaning of heart! First of all we want to thank you for taking your time to writing us this wonderful and detailed feedback! it s so kind from you! We also wants to thank you by your understanding with our regular with no variety breakfast, since we are a little hotel that with his short budget just invest in trying to give a freee breakfast to all our customers, thanks a lot dear Corazon, we hope our staff and service met your marks and we will keep working diligently and even harder in order to provide you even a better service next time! We are looking forward to see you very soon, meanwhile please stay health in this hard times we are passing through with the COVID19 outbreak! Have a great day!
Best experience ever !! ”
Staff are polite and very helpful. Room is super nice and spacious with a super cool jacuzzi. We stayed for 2 nights and the manager told us that we were entitled to free pizza slices each person. Yay!!! Free pizza ware super delicious. On the day for checking out , we decided to order a pizza delivery to our room before we leave, just to have one more awesome taste of it ........ unfortunately the restaurant was closed. Then, to our surprise , the assistant manager volunteered to personally bake us the pizza & deliver it to our room, with a complimentary can of coke! Super tasty huge pizza! Super nice , super friendly staff. Definitely will come stay again during my next visit to Seoul. Thank you DH Naissance Hotel, great job! We feel so happy to have stayed at your hotel. You have sweetened our holiday experience in Seoul.
haha!! this is General Manager Min. I am the General Manager who MADE your pizza by myself !! I am not a assistant manager haha my you were confused because I am looked so young.. haha anyway thank you so much :) hope to see you again !! General Manager Mindrum.
Great hotel for its price point!”
DH Naissance is a no-frills budget hotel, in a non-touristy part of Seoul, easily accessible by subway, and with various local restos and convenience stores accessible within a few minutes walk. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the area is safe, and the staff are extremely helpful (very important for non-Korean-speaking visitors like us). For example, they helped us arrange a buffet samgyeopsal dinner for 16 people at just 12,000 KRW per head, at a nearby local establishment. Complimentary breakfast is the same every day, but quite edible and practical. But with their modest room rates and with the friendly/supportive staff, what is there to complain about? I would strongly recommend this hotel to foreign travelers who are looking for a moderately priced option, who are not averse to eating/travelling like the local Koreans, and who view a hotel as just a place to sleep at after a whole day of touring. Thank you to DH Naisance for making our week in Seoul very comfortable!
Thank you so much for your lovely review and the time you have taken to share with us. We are amazed seeing that your stay with us was great ,and you had an enjoyable overall experience. We do look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Have a great day:))))
Friendly and Helpful Staff. Value for Money.”
I always read reviews before booking a certain hotel. I read about the good location, the friendly staff and the clean rooms of this hotel. After staying for 6 nights, I have proven that all of these were true. The room is nice, good size and is cleaned everyday. Marcos and Luis from the reception were extra helpful. They never got tired of answering queries and were very friendly in answering them. Breakfast is good, too. Free brewed coffee from 6am-9pm! But if I am to look for a con, I would have to say the "crowded MRT line going to and from the hotel." Sure the hotel is only a 2-minute walk from Sungshin Women's University Station (Exit 1). But Line 4 can get REALLY crowded. When traveling, we usually take the MRT so this was a concern for us. Especially if you will be carrying large suitcases, this will be a problem. But other than this, I highly recommend DH Naissance Hotel. I especially love the shopping street going to the hotel. Hope this helped.
Good afternoon Dear Eleanor thank you so much to taking your time to writing us this great and kind feedback to us, we really appreciate every single word you said about our property and service including your special mentions:) We are happy seeing that you have been satiesfied during your stay and we hope we meet your expected marks due to our service during this 6 nights. On the other hand indeed i have to agree with you, that the line 4 gets overcrowded, Line 1,2,4 are the crowded ones since they are the ones who goes to the main spots or downtown, bussines center etc...Once again thank you so much to choosing us, as your place to stay during your holidays, and we hope to see you in a very near future! Meanwhile please take care due to this Covid Outbreak we are passing through, Have a great your day!!:)))
A wonderful staying in DH Naissance Hotel Dongdaemun”
Thank you DH Naissance Hotel Dongdaemun for your openess, kindness, hospitality! Our room was very nice and neat! With two floors and a beautiful staircase. It was like a small house! The view of the city from the 9th floor was also amazing! Our room was clean and fresh every day! But what made it speacial was the staff of the hotel! Every person was very helpful and attentive! We had free welcoming pizza and went on an unforgettable night tour around the city with manager Charlie. As I am studying Korean language I will always and always remember the lessons of Korean I had almost with every member of the stuff (of course in thier free time, not distracting them from work). Especially, thank you, wonderful woman I am so sorry I cannot remeber your name! You inspired me a lot to continue studying your beautiful language! Reading and talking Korean was a pleasure with you! I will always remember you and your kindness! To sum up, we loved this hotel! Worth staying! The best in Seoul!
Thank you so much
I very much recommend DH Naissance Hotel! It’s very convenient, near the subway station (Sungshin Women’s University). There are also a lot of restaurants and bars around the area. Staff are friendly and attentive to the needs of the guests. They even have not just welcome drinks but a slice of pizza or chicken. Best monster pizza, super yummy and it even comes with a sauce. Room is a bit spacious especially the bathroom. It comes with a jacuzzi wherein you can have your bubble bath after a full day tour! The best thing is you can also schedule your free private tour with General Manager Min! He will take you to places wherein only locals go to and all are amazing. He even treated us with delicious coffee and bread during the tour. Very personalized and accommodating! Will definitely stay here again when I visit Seoul!
And we very much recommend a customers like you! with this positive energy and with eager to enjoy at the finest with us and the activities that our GM provides, we are so happy seeing that you enjoyed your holidays in our property and of course in South Korea, we will mention your amazing feedback with our GM he will melt probably heheh, thank you so much once again and we hope when the corona disappear we can enjoy of your company again! please stay health!
Friemdly, Convenient, Courteous., Clean and value for money”
It was really a good first time visit to Seoul especially staying in DH Naissance Hotel. The staff are extremely friendly especially CHARLIE. We stayed in this hotel for 10 days and the room was superb and clean everyday.. we were treated with Free Pizza on the first day of arrival and we were also given a free upgrade during our stay. The location are very convenient with lots of shop and food within walking distance. Transportation is just 3 minutes walk to the subway. Last but not least we will definitely be staying here again when we visit Seoul next year...👏🏻👏🏻👍🏼👍🏼

A gem of a hotel! ”
I found this hotel by accident on booking.com as it was having a great discount. Reading the positive reviews and seeing the big size of the room (I was looking at VIP Double), I made the booking. Upon arriving at the hotel, I was very pleasantly surprised by the friendly counter staff who spoke English, the free services offered (free breakfast, free SIM card, free tour, free welcome pizza/fried chicken), a free upgrade to the VIP Family room, and a permissible early check in at 11am (I was lucky the room was available!). The hotel is excellently located, with a 2min walk to Sungshin University train station, and a 2min walk to a bus stop that has so many bus services that takes u directly to many tourist spots. I loved the convenience that I wasn't expecting. Although there's no swimming pool, the whirlpool tub became the swimming pool my 1.5 year old son loved playing in every afternoon. All in all, this was a very wonderful stay! Thank you DH Naissance, and well done!
Thank you so much!! this is General Manager who made your welcome food!! it was great pleasure me to help you !! we all member still remember you :) hope to see you again General Manager Mindrum
Great location 2 min. from subway and 30 seconds from shopping”
We had a great 7 days at DH naissance hotel - our room had a spa steamed shower (out of order tho) a steam for your clothes and a “living” toilet. A great place to stay if your in Seoul - would definitely recommend it to everyone. The hotel is located at sungshins women university (subway stop) which has a great shopping street and filled with bars an restaurants that hasn’t been closed since 1995 (24/7) Only con was that our steam didn’t work and the breakfast was basic and the same everyday also only open till 8:50 am. The pros do definitely overcome the cons - would stay again if in Seoul. Thanks DH
Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It's something our staff takes great pride in, so we value your feedback. We hope you will visit us again.
Great hotel, very nice location since it's near to the subway. Entire staff is helpful and accommodating, special shoutout to Charlie who assisted us on our first day looking for the subway station. Breakfast option is limited but it's ok since it's a budget hotel. And my most favorite - the super delicious welcome (or farewell) pizza prepared by Mindrum!!!!! I'll definitely choose DH Naissance in my future South Korea travels. 😊
Good Morning :) Please make sure you comeback soon, we got your welcome pizza nearly out of the hooven by now :) Best of luck and thank you so much for your review!
Just very strategic hotel”
This is the first time I went to Korea, and my daughter recommended this hotel : Pros : 1. Surrounded by many restaurants, shops and convenience shops almost 24hours 2.Very near to subway and bus stop which are very helpful 3.Well maintained rooms, modern and well equipped rooms 4.I found the rate was amazingly good for the class of hotels Cons: 1.Breakfast menu was the same everyday (reminded during the check in time), for somebody who stayed for 5 days it was quite boring 2.Some staff (some, not every!), seemed didn;t have basic hospitality sense, it's quite rude for me. Conclusion : Mostly will stay here again if I visit Seoul. And Thanks for me to the DH Naissance management for you r hospitality.
Thank you for taking your precious time to share your detailed feedback with us. It gives us great pleasure to hear that you had such an amazing experience at our hotel. We will continue to strive to provide the best service and we hope to serve you again soon. Thank you~
5 Stars for Friendly DH Naissance Hotel!”
Mindrum and the staff at DH Naissance were amazing and helpful to make our stay in Korea a memorable one. The hotel is in a very convenient location close to shops, restaurants and transit. If you have the chance to go on the city tour with Mindrum you won't regret it! Thanks again DH Naissance!
Good Morning Dear Customer,Providing high quality of service is our responsibility. Still, it feels great to be noticed for our efforts. Thank you very much for your encouragements. We will let our GM Mindrum your special mention he will be happy to hear about that!:)
Great hotel with good location, free breakfast, caring staffs”
Great location with easy access to subway / airport bus. It is also close to a couple of convenient stores (7-eleven, CU, etc.), cosmetic shops (Missha, Etude House, innisfree, etc.), restaurants (Pizza hut, KFC, Korean restaurants), local food stalls, etc. The hotel provides free buffet breakfast which includes boiled eggs, fried rice, kimchi, sausages, miso soup, cream soup, seaweeds, bread with jam/butter, cereals, milk, juice and tea. With the free breakfast, it helped our family to save a lot of costs especially when we were traveling with two young kids. The hotel also provide one free welcoming pizza served by their general manager as well as free bottle water for each person everyday. Again, this is a free bonus that helped our family to save some cost for this trip. In terms of staffs & customer service, i’m giving a 5 stars. Most of their staffs were able to speak proper English and all of them were very helpful and caring. Thanks DH Naissance!!!
Thanks for sharing helpful feedback. We are grateful for the chance to host your visit!y. We are appreciate you recommending and detail review. We do hope that you can come see us again! Hope to hear from you soon, Sincerely, DH Naissance Hotel.
Awesome Place w/ Amazing Staff”
This is actually my 3rd time to check in here this 2018.. This hotel live up to their reputation as the "Friendliest". Communication is not a problem because almost everyone speak very good english. Its like a home away from home.Staff will take care for you like a family. We've already found a friend with some of them especially my good friend Charlie. The "most charming,talented,nicest and very good-looking" assistant manager you'll ever meet in Seoul. (he told me never forget to mention all of these hahahaha!!) But kidding aside he truly is everything what I said...What an awesome fellow!! Back in January he took me to the hospital when I felt ill with flu. And even bought me chicken rice porridge. Kudos to Marcus,Handa and to others I failed to get the names.You are all wonderful!! I will see you again DH Naissance! More power to you!
First of all, I am grateful for your stay at our Hotel and would like to thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review. It is a great pleasure to know that you were highly satisfied with our hotel especially regarding our service.

Once again thank you very much for staying with us and we will be very happy to see you again soon in the near future, take care and have a nice day!!!:)
Great customer service ”
The hotel was good as well as the price. They provided toiletries (cream, razor, shower cap, toothbrush, etc) and 2 bottles of water (one for each). The location was very convenient for public transportation. Many buses and a subway station nearby. Convenience store right around the corner, many restaurants and a shopping area a few minutes walking distance. The customer service was excellent and the best we ever had (beyond our expectations). We are really thankful to all the friendly staff (especially Charlie, Marco and the manager MinDrum) for making our trip more pleasant. The 'handsome' assistant manager Charlie (how he compliments himself and wants us to remember him, 🤣) was the best, was almost like a friend to us since he took his time to help us everytime in anyway he could, not to mention he even printed a map for us to a good gingseng chicken soup (samgyetang) location and took us to a nearby restaurant for cold noodle soup (mul naengmyeon) and to a nearby supermarket. We also got a free trip to the border of the city wall of Seoul from the manager MinDrum where we enjoyed the nice view of Seoul city and received a free slice of cheese pizza each made by the manager (which could be improved since they were a bit raw), can't really complaint because they were free😂. All staff were always eager to help, especially with providing directions and recommendations for food around the area. Last but not least they all speaking decent to very good English. If we ever go back to Seoul we will definitely stay there again. We really recommend you to stay here if you want to have a fun and comfortable place to stay.
Dear Etienne We are pleased to receive this wonderful message from you. Will be happy to welcome you again, to our friendly hotel :) Manager
Home away from home”
Our week long stay in Seoul was full of fun filled memories. Our stay at Dh Naissance provided our kids the comfort during winter. The hotel’s proximity to the train station and beauty shops are a plus. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here on our next trip and will recommend to friends.
hi this is General manager DH Naissance Hotel we really appreciate that u had a happy times the review like this makes us very happy we hope meet again. I will make a pizza for you next time too. sincerely General Manager
Very Pleasant Stay for 3 Nights”
The hotel is located in an excellent location, which is close to everything. The room is small, very clean and comfortable and everything is well equipped with a mini fridge. It is indeed value for money. We are very please with our stay at DH Naissance Hotel Dongdaemun. I would surely recommend friends to stay in this hotel.Welcome pizza is Super delicious made by the manager Min Drum.
You should try one of our very best rooms next time you came to Seoul, you would be surprised! We are waiting for your return and this time we will provide "Welcome back pizza" , even better than the first time!! We appreciate your very kind review !
Hotel with 5 star service and staff”
This hotel really suprised us given the affordable price. We were a group of four and we stayed in the Deluxe Family Room. Check-in was smooth and the receptionist was very friendly. You also get a very filling Welcome Pizza from the manager, a unique touch by this hotel. The room we had looked 5 star. The beds were comfortable and you can be moved upright or lower via remote control. The bathroom was amazing and equipped with a whirlpool bathtub! Our room was cleaned everyday and they constantly replenish our toiletries. Breakfast starts early at 7am. This is good because it means you can do more in a day. Other hotels only start at 8 or 9. Also unlike other hotels in the same price range, this hotel's breakfast is extensive. Breakfast usually consists of rice, sausages, 2 kinds of soups, salad, bread, banana, cereals, orange juice, milk, and of course kimchi. Wifi is fast and reliable. Small things I like is that you get connected easily without inputting the password. Location wise, Sungshin Women's University Station is a 3 minute walk. This line is the same line as Myeongdong and Dongdaemun so you don't need to transfer lines. The area around has lots of restaurants and a Starbucks. If your into skincare, most of the major cosmetic shops you find in Myeongdong like Innisfree and Nature Republic, you will also find in the shopping street a block away from here. We actually just did our shopping here. But what I like really best about this hotel was the friendliness of the staff. Believe me, I am Filipino and we know what friendly is. :) Everyone was approachable and knowledgeable. Special thanks to Marco, Luis, Charlie and the girl from Singapore for being patient with my 75 year old father. He can be a handful. But he really appreciated the small talk and wishes all of you the best in your life. I never write reviews with the hotels I stayed in but I wanted to write about your hotel because I really was impressed. PS. The hotel's staff is so international (Spa
dear Manuel, I remember you! thank you for your kind and wonderful review for us! Im really glad you like our rooms and is our pleasure to help you. yes our hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the shopping district and is easy to get stuff. dont worry we love talking to your father and he is definetely not any trouble to us(: we enjoyed talking to you too and we hope you to see you soon! Please come back! Roxanne ( Girl from Singapore) DH Naissance Hotel
