Great Location and Great Value for Money ”
Ehwa hotel was definitely great value for your money. The location was great because it's a short walk to Myeongdong station, Myeongdong market, and Myeongdong cathedral. Since the weather was great, we even walked to Lotte Mall. Expect an uphill walk when you go the hotel from the station or bus stop. You can either go through the market or around the corner. Either way you will encounter an uphill walk. But with a cool weather it's really not a big deal. I like that it is central to a lot of things so I go walk around the market whenever I want to. 👍🏼 We arrived earlier than check-in time but the staff let us leave our bags at the hotel lobby while we go around the market before check-in time. The room size was satisfactory for the 4 of us. There's adequate space for luggage. Water dispenser at every floor so we had free water for the whole duration of stay. The bed was super comfortable! Breakfast at the basement with daily ham, cheese, bread, cereals, noodles, coffee and juice. But for me it was more than enough because at the price of the hotel, this breakfast was already beyond what I had expected. Staff was very very nice and answered my inquiries kindly. I just want to emphasize how nice they are. There's only a few of them and they are always busy but they always attend to your inquiries politely. Again this is really great value for money, especially the location. If you're a traveler on tour, Myeongdong station is nearby so you have no problems with getting to tour meet-ups or getting to a bus stop. Lots of convenience stores and restaurants nearby. For the price, the space was enough. Seoul was a great destination for me and my family and in the next years if I come, will definitely book Ehwa Hotel. Thank you Ehwa Hotel staff for making my stay at Seoul great. More power to you!
Hey Maridi, How are you? Thank you sooooooooo much your kind compliment!!! :D Really glad to hear that you had a delightful stay with EHWA!!! :) Being with your family was also great to us as well. We appreciate everything you've done here, especially your big smiles to everyone.^^ You guys are such a beautiful people and definitely one of the best guests we ever had! We all miss you, so please come stay again at your next visit to Seoul. Look forward to seeing you. Take good care and Thank you! :D
This was my 2nd time in Seoul and I’m so glad that I was able to find Ehwa in Agoda! We are a family of 7, all adults and the loft family room fits us perfectly! The loft has 4 queen beds, 1 on the 2nd flr, 1 inside a room and the 2 just on the main area. We have 2 bathrooms, a retro fridge, TV, huge AC and table and bench inside. We really got the price we paid for and MORE! The staff are really nice, and can speak and understand English pretty well so again, perfect! Location is superb, because it’s only a good 2-3 mins walk to myeongdong food and shopping street, myeongdong cathedral and myeongdong and euljiro subway station. I hate walking, so believe me when I say that those places I mentioned are really near the hotel. Hehe I plan on going back to visit Seoul again in the near future, and I would gladly book again here! Over and over if I’ll be given a chance! Enjoy a hassle-free trip to South Korea!
Hi Pamela. Thank you for leaving us a great review!! This detailed information should be pretty helpful to our future guests. We feel great of your having stayed here well. Was it never better ? :) This review reminiscent me of your family again. Hope you had a great time in Korea. Please let us know when you hit on the road again to come over here. Repeatedly thank you for the closely, perfectly written review. Thank you Best regards
The staff from this hotel are a gem! My travelling buddy and I were stranded on our first night in Seoul because our accommodation that we booked initially had screwed up when we arrived. We were so helpless because we did not have any place to stay since it was so last minute to check in any hotel that night (it was the new year's eve!). However, one of their staff literally became our saviour because she helped us checked if there would be any hotels in the vicinity that have vacant rooms for the first couple of days before checking into Ehwa Hotel. Our stay at Ehwa Hotel was also pleasant indeed. We got a free upgrade and the other staff were always willing to provide assistance whenever we need. I will highly recommend Ehwa Hotel in Myeongdong if you're planning a visit to Seoul!
Hi, RAIHANAH :) thank you for your amazing review. we are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We all miss you a lot(even though we can see you everyday in the photo on the front desk haha). If you visit Seoul again please just let us know! Thank you and have a nice day :))
Surprisingly great choice”
Couldn’t totally make up my mind on this booking up to the very last minute. But I am glad i did choose Ehwa in Myeongdong. Although the room was kinda small (it was a challenge moving around with our huge luggages in the way), i believe it was good value for what I paid for. Was just in the room to sleep at night, anyways. Location was excellent! Just around the corner was the shopping hub of Myeongdong. Behind the hotel was the Myeondong Cathedral (a big plus for a Catholic family like ours) and it was comforting to know that there is a hospital nearby. The Euljiro station was just a short walk from the hotel and the bus station is just across the street. Breakfast was very simple, with the same menu everyday. Good thing we weren’t picky eaters. They don’t clean the room or change the towels and linens unless you specifically request for it. All in all, it was a pleasant stay. Would definitely stay here again when we go back to Seoul.
Dear Daisy, How are you? Thank you so much for nice review. We're glad you had a nice time with us. We'll keep working hard and make sure that your next stay wolud be much better. Hope to see you again. Thank you so much~^^
This was my first time visiting Korea and I chose Ehwa Hotel Myeongdong, just about 10mins walking distance from Myeongdong Subway station exit 10. It’s a great place to stay, value for money, comfortable & the hotel is very clean. Breakfast are provided too. The staffs are very nice & friendly. Communication is easier as they can speak English very well. They even direct me how to go to some nice places around Seoul. I definitely recommend this hotel as it’s very convenience to go around Seoul via Subway. Myeongdong Shopping Street, Namsan Seoul Tower, Namdaemun Market ( to name a few) just nearby, delicious food can be found around this area too.
Dear, Guest Thank you for your staying and Review about us :) It was really glad to meet you in Seoul. Please contact us again when you visit Seoul next time. We are looking forward to meet you agian. Thank you!
Perfect stay for Myeongdong”
Loved Ehwa Hotel at Myeongdong. I was given a room on the 7th floor and the view out the window was the serene Myeongdong Cathedral. If bringing big suitcase and taking AREX from Incheon Airport, suggest to exit at Seoul Station, instead of traveling to Myeongdong station. I was struggling to carry my luggage up and down staircases from platform to the main road at Myeongdong station. Taxi fare in daytime costs KRW 4,500. Taxi fare at night costs KRW 8,500. Arrived at 9am, too early for check-in. They kept my luggage and kindly put it into my room for me. Tip: if asking for room cleaning, it only gets completed by 4pm. They clean the rooms that are due for check-in first. Warm service and 2/3 staff spoke impeccable English.
Dear marianne. we feel touched your having satisfied with the property. Your detailed review should be absolutely helpful to our future thanks. We still remember you were warm-hearted, gentle. It's our pleasure to have had you over here. We, all the staffs, are always trying to the best to the solid satisfaction for the guests. we are looking forward to seeing you here again asap. Hope you were safe back to your country. Best wishes :P
Had an extremely pleasant stay at Ehwa Hotel. The service provided by the staff was excellent and they were able to converse in good English so we were not lost in translation. Definitely a 5/5 for the cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel in general. Location was convenient and only a few hundred metres away from the shopping district of Myeong-dong which was great! The rooms we stayed in were on the small side especially since we brought fairly huge luggages so two people in one room would be a bit of a squeeze but it wasn't a big issue since we were mostly out travelling. Simple breakfast was provided - bread (with toasters), various spreads, cereals and milk/juice. They also provided cup noodles and meat to be eaten with the bread but for muslim travellers, do take note that it is not halal; or at least when we stayed there. Overall, pleasant stay (:
Dear, Lin. Thank you for your stay and review for us :) and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Also, we will consider about your advice for noting that it's not halal food. we are looking forward to meet you again!
I like this hotel because it's very near Myeong Dong (MD) Catholic Church. Staff were friendly especially Sean and Mr Lee who is always making sure that guests are well fed during breakfast Sean went out of his way to always help us with our inquiries. Ehwa is very near the MD Shopping district and the MD subway station exit 10. We will definitely stay in Ehwa again if we happen to be back in Korea.
Hi, Maria :) Thank you for stay with us! We're glad to hear that you had a pleasant time here. We'll keep working up to make your next stay much better. Hope to see you in Seoul again. Thank you so much!
The place is in a very good location if you want to stay around Myeong-dong. It's very near the shopping area but you can still have peace and quiet during the night. and it is also very near the Metro (Myeong-dong) where almost all the tours like Nami Island and Everland have their pickup and drop off points are. Staff are superb and very helpful. The only negative side is that the room has no closet to put your clothes and no safety box. But hey! for the price of this hotel and for its location, I will book here again anytime i will visit Seoul.
Dear Noelino, Thank you for your review written in detail! How was your flight? Your country will be much warmer than here. The weather is colder and colder in Seoul >< ... Please visit us again in Spring! How was your Nami Island and Everland? In Korea, there are lots of beautiful islands. We hope you can look around every beautiful destination in our country. Moreover, next time we also recommend you to visit Lotte world, too! There is an ice link inside too! It would show you different attraction compared to Everland. Thank you very much, Best regards, Ehwa in MD
Amazing Hotel!!! And Very Beautiful Hotel”
A must stay hotel in seoul. Very near to myeongsong food and shopping street. Near to tourist attractions. And near to subway stations (walking distance). Very accommodoting staff. Rooms we got is 2 quadruple and it’s very spacious and clean. And I saw their couple and single rooms, it’s spacious as well. Breakfast is includes. Very fast wifi at the hotel.. I suggest that don’t buy simcard in the airport if you’re going to stay in ehwa, because they offer egg wifi with 4g internet & it’s very fast, and cheaper than in the airport. 5000won/day is the egg wifi in ehwa with deposit of 20,000won. To sum up our stay. PERFECT!!! We really had fun in korea and in the hotel. Recommended!
Dear HANS ! Hello, Hans :) This is manager Vitta ^^ Thank you for leaving us a great review with a perfect score!! We also really recommend your review for other guests in the near future. Your information will be quite helpful for other travelers. We appreciate that you recommended three main merits of Ehwa in MD. First of all, very easily accessible to Myeongdong area! As you said, you can get there in 5 minutes >< Secondly, spacious room and friendly staffs ! :D Lastly, unlimited wifi inside of Ehwa building!! Thank you for recommending our guest house as PERFECT!! Your review is also PERFECT !! We will wait for your next visit ~^0^ Best regards, Vitta, manager
We had a very pleasant stay with Ehwa hotel. Very near Myeongdong shopping area, and subway. Lots of convenient stores nearby. Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating; will answer your questions on the spot and teach you how to go to a certain place. They even lend us socket adapter for our chargers. The only negative thing about them is that their reception closes at 11PM and opens at 8am so as their kitche; breakfast is served a little late at 8am especially when you have an early tour. So when you need to ask something or need something, you needd to wait till they arrive. But overall, we had a great time. Will definitely go back there when we visit Seoul again.
Good Afternoon, Ms. Joann! Thank you for enjoying your stay with us. It might be discomfortable for our guests, but We really appreciate for your understanding our reception time. and Hope you definitely come back EHWA again!
Ehwa in myeongdong is perfect for tourist that just want a comfy place to sleep after doing site seeing and shopping. Its so close to the myeondong shopping district and theres lots of places to eat at either in the resturant or street foods. Its is easily accessible by train the Euljiro 1 and 3( line 2) and line 4 of the subway. The staffs is very helpful and accommodating to their guest needs.
Hi Monera. Thank you for the perfect review. We are easily accessible to public transportation. Shopping districts(special districts for tourism) are nearby(Easily get tax refund right away). A different of room types from single to Deluxe Family Suite. Your review maybe helpful to our future guests. Good day: )
Location is good, very close the the train station and Myeong Dong. We had a day tour with kkday, and the meetup place at Shinsege is within walking distance from our hotel too. The double bed room appears smaller than expected, without much room for us to put our luggage on the floor. It would have been better if there is a wardrobe with drawers, and a safe inside the room. Breakfast is the same everyday. This room is okay for short stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, a good stay. I will stay here again if i return to Seoul.
Hi Christabel, Thank you for very nice review about us! :D It's great to hear that you had enjoyable experiences during your stay. And so sorry for all the inconvenience you went through. We'll take your suggestions into account, and working on to make your next stay much better. Please come stay with us again at your next visit to Seoul. Look forward it. :D Take care and Thank you!
Ehwa in Myeongdong Is an excellent place to stay at when you’re in Seoul!”
Nice room, friendly staff, excellent place, great value for money, good location... we have nothing but good words for Ehwa in Myeongdong and we will definitely stay here again when we’re back in Seoul!
Hi Ma~ Wow~ Thank you so so much for nice review about us!!!!!!!^^ Wonderful surprise!! :D We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay here. Your family was great people as well.

We're all waiting for you~!! Take good care. Thank you! :D
Very convenient, Value for money, Great Customer service”
Perfect location. Great facilities. Really value for money. The water dispenser, daily breakfast, and free luggage storage (when you checkout or checkin) would save you from a lot of extra expenses you could have incurred from staying at Airbnb (late realization). I really regret that we moved to an airbnb apartment (around Hongdae) after our stay at Ehwa. Personally speaking, Ehwa is really the place to be for us. I don't mind if the breakfast is the same everyday. Considering its price and accessibility, I think it's like a bonus already. We also can't forget Ms. Vita who helped us call a taxi (when we moved to Hongdae) and she even carried my heavy luggage as we tried to catch the taxi during the rush hour. We have so much praises for their service. If ever there's a downside that would be the cleanliness since they don't do it automatically. But you could just inform them about it and they'll act accordingly. Highly recommend this hotel!
Hello, How are you? :) Thank you for your priceless review about us and staying with us. Hope we can meet you again for the next time you visit Seoul!! :) We will wait here for you with warm heart. Thanks again and have a nice day :D
Good Location for travel, eating and shopping in Seoul with reasonable price”
This Hotel is located at the centre of Myeong Dong. One of the tourist attraction hot spot. There are three subway lines surrounding the hotel ie Line 2 (within 3 minutes walk) and Line 3 & Line 4 (within 5 minutes walk). From here you can easily travel to most of Seoul tourist attraction places. Hotel charges are including Breakfast as well as laundry which is value for money. Eating and shopping areas is within 3 minutes walk.
Hi, Chiew :) Thank you for stay with us! We're glad to hear that you had a pleasant time here. We'll keep working up to make your next stay much better. Hope to see you in Seoul again. Thank you so much!
We loved our stay at Ehwa. Being a 2 minute walk from Myeongdong Shopping Street, it was an excellent price for the location. The hotel staff was really friendly and helpful - the gentleman at the front desk remembered us and followed-up with us each day as we came and go from the hotel. Albeit the room was a tad small, the bed a tad too hard, it was a wonderful stay. We'll definitely be going back!
Hey Helen!!!!!, How are ya? Did you back home safely? Hope you were. It was very nice meeting you guys! And yeah, with all the concerns we got from your email, we worried you guys a lot. But finally you made it.!!!!! And so sorry you felt the room wasn't good enough you expected. We'll try find a way to make it better. Wish to see you again someday in the future. Take good care! Thank you! :D
Very clean hotel, accommodating staff., convenient location”
We had a good time staying at Ehwa in myeongdong . Walking distance from myengdong street shopping center. The staff are great and english speaking we had no problem communicating with them regarding our inquiries. Surely we will go back! Thank you ehwa!
Thank you so much for your kind comment. It's really nice to hear that you had a good time in Ehwa. We'll keep working to make your next stay much better. Hope to see you in Seoul again! Thank you :)
The hotel is located behind the Myeong Dong Cathedral which makes it very easy to access Myeong Dong Market. Obviously, the only thing that you have to pay attention to is the hilly route to the Hotel. If person with walking problem, then it might be quite a challenge. Overall, great, clean, friendly staff and I would have to mention Mr Sean who was very2 helpful and informative. I had a pleasant and great stay at the Hotel
Hi Tengku, How are you? Enjoying cool weather down there? (That's good!) Hope you're doing well. Thank you so much for staying with EHWA and also very nice comments.^^ It's glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Seeing you was great experience as well. :D We appreciate many things you've shown during your stay. (Esp, you made others smile and happy all the time. very kind & sweet of you!) We already miss you and your friend (it was too short time for both of us though.) Wish all the best for you guys and look forward to seeing you again next year! Take good care, Thank you! :D
It was the second time that I stayed with Ehwa in Myeongdong. This time, with my parents, two sisters and nephew. It is a value for money accommodation as it is strategically located to the subway and the shopping area in Myeongdong. The food for breakfast is just the same as the last time. I hope they would offer rice and viand for a change☺️ The room will not be cleaned up unless you ask them to. I really liked that we could self- check in as we arrived very late. It was also a good thing that instant coffee and tea are free and available at the lobby. The manager Sean was accommodating and he speak English. So, no language difficulty there. Oh, there is a welcome snack once you booked for 5 days or more.
Hey, Thank you so so much for staying with EHWA and taking your time to leave nice comments which will be very useful for next guests here!! We all glad that you had a delightful time with us. :D We'll keep working on to make your next stay way more comfortable. Look forward to having you soon. Take good care. Thank you! :D
