Nine Tree Hotel Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"A brand new hotel, minimalistic (which I appreciate), very friendly staff, a 4min walk underground to the gate entrance of the subway. Unfortunately, we were not able to try breakfast due to pandemic restrictions. However, thats hardly a problem, because the hotel is located only 6min walk to a very popular Kwang Jang Market, a target location for many Netflix specials about different food stalls and restaurants. Would definitely recommend the location for anyone trying to check out Dongdaemun. "

Hotel Skypark Kingstown Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"Firstly, we would like to thank Mr Sam Jung for going out of his way to help us during our stay at hotel skypark. We were overcharged for some expensive items and Mr Sam helped us to communicate with the store and retrieve the money back for us. He was polite and professional throughout and we really appreciate his kindness. We stayed in the princess room which looked as pretty as what was seen in the photos. Room was big, with a kitchenette that comes with a microwave and plenty of space for us to enjoy our takeouts. Hotel was located within the Hyundai outlets and right beside doota. The rest of the dongdaemun wholesale area was also within close walking distance. There is even a convenience store right at the lobby where we could stock up on some snacks before going out or after our late night shopping. Great hotel, we really enjoyed our stay here. "

Seoul N Hotel Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"We booked this hotel just 2 days before the trip as problem with previous hotel. Quite rush, but we were still lucky. The room is quite small but still ok for 3 of us (parents and 8 year old kid) as we just use room for sleeping at night. Staff are very nice; the hotel is clean, new, have washing machine and balance (scale) to weight your luggage also. It is 10 mins walk from subway station, 5 mins walk to airport bus (Bus no. 6002-Cheongnyangni station), have many convenience store like 7-11, GS25, Emart 24 around. There is also a big supermarket E-mart near hotel, 10 mins walk. They also serve breakfast which is ok for us. We have had 3 nights here and really like it. Will recommend it to my friends and will be back next time in Seoul. Thanks Seoul N Hotel Dongdaemun."

Hotel the Designers Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"This hotel is one of the cutest hotels I've ever been too. Although it has no gym or swimming pool or facilities like that, the room is very cute. Each room has its own unique interior design and you get to choose your room at check-in. They also have a cafeteria on the second floor that is also a lounge. The hotel across the street from one of the exits for Dongdaemun History and Culture Park station and is conveniently located on 3 different lines. It is a great location for shopping and there are many great restaurants nearby as well. The staff was extremely helpful, I realized my A/C was not working and they immediate switched me to another room. Also, they let me use the lounge after checking out. Will definitely stay again."

The Summit Hotel Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"The hotel was superb. Great location. 5 minute leisurely walk to Dongdaemun History and Culture Plaza Station (lines 2,4,5). Walking distance to the Dongdaemun shopping area. Food establishments 2-3 mins away. Staff were very helpful and served with a ready smile. Even the cleaning lady was cheerful and gave us whatever extra amenities we needed. Room was spacious and clean. Wi-fi was strong. To top it all, the airport limousine bus stopped right in front of the hotel entrance and so with all our luggage, there was no hassle of getting a ride to the airport. Really, really convenient. Only drawback (if you can call it that) was that there was no breakfast included with the rooms. Other than that, everything was ok. I recommend this hotel for a place to relax and rest after a whole day touring the city. "

Uljiro Co-op Residence
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"hotel was very convinient. it's a stone throw away from dongdaemun history & culture park station and the dongdaemun fashion town. and just 2 stops away from myeongdong on subway line #4. the room was basic. and if you are not expecting any luxury, uljiro co-op residence would be the perfect place to stay at. all the necessary things required are available. they have free wifi at the hotel lobby. and if you prefer using the desktop, there are two of them available for use at no charge. they even allow you to print stuff out free of charge as well which was really nice. as for the room, i would say that my stay was actually really good! stayed 7 nights there and i had good rest each night. my friend and i shared a room (double sharing with a queen size bed). the bed and pillow was not too bad. there is also a small table with 2 chairs. and a plasma tv mounted on wall where we watched various korean drama and variety shows each night! many channels to choose from. there was a small kichenette where we made hot drinks everyday too! the first 2 bottle of mineral water was complimentary as well. after reading reviews from various sites, there were negative comments on the toilet. it was kinda small but it's actually okie honestly. there's no seperate shower room, but it has a small cabinet where the clean towels were placed. the spare compartments were used to store the clothings without getting them wet! so that solved the problem. and rooms were kept clean each day. the ahjummas were really nice to replace with fresh towels everyday too. by the way, from incheon international airport, you just need to take bus 6001, and it takes you directly to the door step of the hotel. this made the return trip much easier for me and my friend with our heavy luggages. and it only cost per trip. there is also a convinience stall gs25 less than 2mins away."

Novotel Ambassador Seoul Dongdaemun Hotels & Residences
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"It's a wonderful well-kept hotel with options of warm indoor pool, sauna, and good restaurant. Great 20th floor lobby ambiance with LED wall showing this hotel embracing hi-tech as part of its offering and soothing roof deck with lounges as well as open yoga area. Kids area is wonderful and safe, catering not only toddler play but also bigger kids with the availability of PS4, they just need to provide more games. Good selection of western with a section of Korean breakfast, enjoyed the daily fresh salmon as well as the warm chocolate croissant. Walking distance to a famous landmark, hop-on/off bus stop, subway, & restaurants. Downside: Even though the hotel location close to a noticeable landmark (Dongdaemun Design Plaza), a lot of taxi drivers didn't know the hotel. The main drop-off lobby located on the back part of the hotel instead of the front part (main highway) of the hotel, creates confusion for all cars when dropping off the guests."

Ramada By Wyndham Seoul Dongdaemun
Dongdaemun,Dongdaemun - View on map
"firsty.. location: this hotel is located between 2 subway stations. it's about a 5 - 10 minute walk from either subway stop - (euljiro 4-ga or dongdaemun history culture park). you can walk above ground (not much to see though, small cafes only) or underground sports markets. the underground walk connects directly to the subway station (exit 17 is the closest to the hotel). walking around here, also feels very safe. we were walking at midnight and it was fine. the dongdaemun markets/shopping area is open until 5am! so the location of the hotel is great, as after a day of touring or activities, you can go shopping til late, and simply walk home at 3am. to and from incheon airport it takes about 1.5 - 2hrs... you can take the subway straight from the airport (have to transfer lines 2 times i think, from memory), or there's an airport bus (bus 6001) and the bus stop is only 3 - 5minutes walk around the corner from the hotel (in front of the co-op). price: i (24) stayed here with my partner (27), cousin (17) and friend (25). we had a 4 single beds room (which is rare!) with included breakfast. we stayed for 5 nights. the price was soooo cheap considering it was a deluxe (korean standard) hotel. breakfast wasn't a traditional continental breakfast, it's a mixture of korean and western things. the menu isn't very large, but it's good, and it changes everyday to prevent it from getting boring, for those staying more than a few days and have breakfast there everyday. in comparison to other hotels, the price was really value for money. room/staff: the room was very clean! the bathroom was very clean! the shower water was nice and warm. we came here when it was the end of winter so it was still quite cold weather, and the heating system was a lifesaver. the place doesn't have a heater, but it has heated floors! and that was enough to heat up the whole room, even to the point where it was so warm, we needed to open the windows to let some fresh cold air in."
