Awesome affordable choice of accomodation”
The decision to stay at this hotel was a wise one. The location was awesome because its right in the middle of busy Myeongdong street, its just next to Hotel Skypark I, so if you do get lost, its easier to get directions. There is a money changer directly at level 1. Lots of street food available and since its near to the cosmetic shops, you could always lug your heavy purchases back to the hotel before buying more! The best part was, it is just 1min away from Myeongdong station and about 12mins from Eujiro 1-ga station, very accessible by foot. And the nearest airport limo bus was just 3mins walk from the hotel. Ekonomy Hotel Myeongdong Premier exceeded my expectations in terms of the service they provided at the low price I paid. The television at my room didn't work on the first night and they gave us another room just to watch the television till it got fixed the next day. I wasn't expecting good quality tolietries (no toothbrushes though) but they surprised me and the furnishing are so new. The simple breakfast included eggs, bread, jam and butter with beverages such as fruit juices, coffee and tea. It could get boring, so why not try the local breakfast places instead such as Issac toast (exit 5), paris baguette (exit 4), 24hrs local kimbap store (exit 4). My family really enjoyed our 6 nights at Ekonomy Hotel Myeongdong Premier, thank you! (:
Good Location, Helpful Staff”
I travelled from Incheon Airport to Ekonomy Hotel by Arex and MRT. And here's a tip for traveller who brought a huge luggage with them. Similar with other MRT stations in Seoul, there are only a few exits with escalator. The nearest exit to the Hotel with escalator is Exit 7. When you reached Myeong dong station, make sure you find the way to exit 7 before going one floor up. This is because the exits are not linked. If you no luggage you may come out from exit 6. The Hotel is at a very good location, near to most skincare shops, the famous bibimbap store and opposite the Hotel there's a Beans Bin Cafe famous for its waffles. There are many street snacks available too. Do note that the lobby is at level 7 and elevator is available. The staffs speak good English and were very helpful. I ordered a Wifi egg to be delivered to the hotel. However, the hotel did not receive the WiFi egg. The staff helped met call the WiFi company and find out what happened. It turned out that the WiFi company sent my WiFi egg to another Ekonomy hotel nearby. I was able to collect the WiFi egg later. The free breakfast was handy, as we could grab a quick breakfast and head out thereafter. It's just toast with butter, jam, hard boiled egg, juices and milk, but they were sufficient. There were also two free computer for customers to use at the lobby. They wanted to change the wallpaper of our room the day before we check out, so they offered to change our room and gave us some free souvenirs as apologies. Many complained that the room was small, but we bookes a Deluxe triple room and the room space was sufficient for 3 of us though it could be larger. No complain for the amount of money we paid. Overall, its a good stay and I would recommend this Hotel!
Good location, clean rooms”
Walking distance (6 min) from Myeong-dong subway station from exit 6. Best to walk to hotel with luggage in the morning or at night after 10pm, because the street will be very crowded when the shops are open, especially during lunch or dinner time. There's a good Korean BBQ restaurant at 3rd floor in the same building. I recommend guests staying at Ekonomy Hotel to eat there, as the food is delicious and it is convenient. The hotel room is quite small, but some rooms are bigger than the others. Enough to place 2 medium-size luggage. Comfortable bed. Water from the bathroom often flows out a little if the shower is accidentally aimed at the door. The water from the shower is often changing from hot to cold and vice versa even after setting it. Around 11pm, the lights at the hallway will be switched off, leaving it quite dark if you were to go out or come back late after 11pm. Water dispenser is provided at the hallway each floor. Breakfast is served from 8am to 10am, making it very inconvenient for us since our activities start at 8am. It would be better if the breakfast starts at 6am or 7am. Guest would have to stand or bring the food back to the room to eat because there are very limited seats. Not much variety, mostly bread and hard-boiled eggs. Check-in and check-out process is fast.
Excellent location! ”
Booked with Ekonomy Hotel 3 days prior my flight to Seoul, South Korea for a very affordable price! Staff are very accomodating. Double rooms are not the typical hotel rooms you expect but it's still worth the price. Light breakfast is also being serve. Free coffee, tea, bread and fruits. This hotel is so near myeongdong train staion! Very busy shopping street! It was a good stay though!
Cheap, Good location”
Close to the bus station, train station and myeongdong shopping district. The comfort room is a bit small but cant complain, the price is cheap and the room very clean. Staff were friendly with a few exceptions. Will Try other ekonomy hotels next time.

affordable, convenient, good communication skills for the hotel staff, courteous ”
over all everything is superB, the only thing that would make your stay a bit difficult is the room size. we were 6 in the group and booked 3 rooms with 2 people in every room. but the it seems quite difficult to move freely in the room. but the whole stay was great. you get free drinks at the lobby. use of computer is available. airport transfer is cheaper compare to other existing companies. they have all the information you'll need for getting elsewhere in seoul to nami island. everything is available in this place. 101% recommendable for everyone who would be able to stay in a small room. you can find buffet around the hotel if you find it quite expensice to eat around the nearby restaurants. at night you can enjoy street foods oh my gosh this is the most exciting part of staying in myeongdong (shopping and street foods)!!! if i will be back anytime sooner i would still love to book this hotel..
Awesome location and helpful staff”
I was at Ekonomy Myeongdong for 5 nights and I enjoyed the 5 nights I was there. First of all, location beats everything. It's right above Myeongdong and you don't have to worry about food cos there's convenient stores across the street and down the road. It's 2 minutes walk from MyeongDong Exit 6 and has a lift to your floor. Staff were helpful when I first got there. They have staff that speaks Cantonese, Mandarin, English and Korean. The hostel common area are clean and tidy. The only little complain I had was that since its central heating, there was no (cold) air conditioning. But lucky my room had a window so it's ok. I had a great time staying there. One of the staff who works night shifts was my age and we happened to both been in Australia and share the same religion. I forgot to get his contact but that lights up my trip since I was traveling along and it's great to meet someone that have something in common! Wish we kept contact tho. Maybe I will see him next time I stay there again! I would definitely recommend this hostel and stay there again!
Best choice ever”
Very nice. Location is perfect, shopping street outside the building, 24/7 Free drinks (juice, milk, coffee and tea) breakfast bread, jams and eggs. Bus Stop for 6015 nearby. Convenience stores are also very close and other restaurants. Had a very nice stay at Ekonomy Hotel MDP. Thank you to it's staff. Will surely stay there again.
Best place for backpackers”
It’s less then 5mins from myeongdong station exit 6! It’s very conveniently located and you can easily identify the place as it’s located above the line shop. I got the single room and it’s very compact for 1 person. I can also open my big luggage without any problem. I would come here again when I visit Seoul next time. For breakfast there’s toast, boiled eggs, coffee, orange juice. But breakfast starts at 8pm abit too late if u have a tour booked in the morning. It’s better to serve breakfast at 7am just like any other hotel I’ve stayed before in Seoul . Overall it’s value for money!
Thank you very much for your stay. Your suggestion will be appreciated.
Great location and staff”
If you want a place in the middle of the shopping district (myeongdong) of Seoul, this is your place. The rooms are small and not sure the value for money is there, but you can't beat the location. It is only a block away from the subway and right in the heart of the shopping district. Walk outside and you are right in the mix of things. Great shopping, restuarants, street food, and easy access to anywhere in Seoul via the subway. Best part of the location is that it shuts down at around midnight so need to worry about noise. The staff is really great too. Everyone speaks good English and is willing to help. Upon arrival our room had not been clean, I believe a simple mistake, and was taken care of straight away. The staff immediately offered us a new room. All in all a great place to stay if you do not mind room size. Like I said I am not sure the value for money is there, but many places in Seoul are not.
Nice place nice location”
The location was great.. very close to myeongdong station and this hotel located upstairs of line store in myeongdong - very nice location The room is okay comparing to other similar hotel (with similar price or location), breakfast is enough (there are bread, jam, boiled egg, cheese, choice of juice, choice of tea and coffe) The staff very helpfull
Best bang for the bucks!”
Perfect location for traveler who likes shopping. Very near to subway - Myeongdong St exit 6. And it is right above the famous Line Store. Walking distance to 6015 airport shuttle bus (along the main road next to Ninetree hotel). Definitely a 5 star location. I stayed 3 nights at Double room and 1 night at Twin room. To my surprise the twin room has more walking space than the double room at 7th floor. Please avoid room 703, too small for 2 persons and toilet is smelly. I got the room 602 during my last night stay and it's more spacious. Unfortunately the toilet door is not properly sealed, so be extra careful not to point the showerhead to the door side during shower. Other than this I have no complaint, for the money that I spent it's very well worth the price. Breakfast is the same daily but you get free flow of different juices :)
Great Location, Clean and Nice Staff”
This hotel located less than 100 meters away from Myeongdong Station Exit 7. Very nice location, street foods are everywhere near to this hotel. Although the hotel is at the center of Myeongdong, the room is quiet and comfortable to sleep in. Wifi is available in every room. Microwave is also available at their receptionist area for those who needs to reheat the foods they brought from homeland. You can borrow the universal adapter from the staff by giving deposit of KRW 10,000. Breakfast is served every morning starting from 8am (bread, jam, eggs, muffin, etc)
Little Gem in Myeongdong”
Had a great stay at the Ekonomy Premier. Excellent location and a good value for your money. Would definitely stay again.
Great Location for shopping”
The room is pretty small but we were out all the time so it was okie for us. The hotel is just in the heart of Myeong-dong shopping district. It is very near to their metro station too. Is just walking distance to everywhere.
Would definitely come back again”
It was really a pleasant stay and I am really impressed with everything despite it being a 2-star hotel. Checking in took only 2minutes the hotel is just beside the LINE store in Myeongdong, 1 min walk from exit 6. I booked a double room with no window and I feel that it is just nice for 1 person, 2 people might be a little squeezy but manageable. Wifi was working very well, there were charging ports everywhere and they even provided a mini fridge. hot water were running well from the shower for all the days i stayed and my room was just beside the water dispenser. Yes there is a water dispenser on both the levels. there is lift to each level so carrying a huge luggage like I did wouldnt be a problem.
Value for money”
The location is way too convenient, it's very near the metro station, accessible to other part of seoul, and it's easy to get a cab since myeongdong is a tourist attraction there are many cabs waiting for you. The receptionist staff was able to speak english, which makes your overall stay much pleasant. The room was really very small, but since I only stayed for a night alone so it doesn't bother me.
Awesome location; value for money ”
The location is really good; just beside the Myeongdong line store along the main Myeongdong streets. 3-4 mins walk from exit 6. The room was rather small, but just nice I think! For the price was really worth it. Just that the toilet is really really small. Also, a little hassle to have to request for housekeeping (not by default). Free breakfast provided (: and friendly staff who can speak English (but only from 8am-11pm)
Thank you for your feedback. we hope to meet you again and and will repay you with a better service.
The hotel is quite new and clean, staff were very friendly. LINE store is just same block with the Hotel located on ground, 1st and 2nd floor. The are certain rules clearly stated and outlined by Hotel which you need to follow strict. For house keeping, you must inform the front desk daily before 11am otherwise no housekeeping for the day. Location is very convenient, just less than 5 mins walk to Myeongdong Metro exit 6. the Uniqlo flagship store just around the corner. I have got my Colleague to stay there on her June visit.
