This is our 4th time in Seoul and our 1st time to stay in Hotel Skypark 1 Myengdong. We highly recommend the hotel especially if you intend to shop, tour the city and just enjoy the street foods. The lobby is at the 11th floor and we are glad to be readily welcomed by the staff of the hotel as we arrived and checked-in at around 1am already. Breakfast starts at 7:30am-10am at the 11F terrace area, serving a variety of food and different menu during the duration of our stay. Free shuttle bus service (by advanced reservation) is offered going to Seoul Station, Dongdaemun and Shilla Duty Free. Rooms with 2 single beds is quite small but okay because we have a view of the Myeongdong shopping area. The hotel is just a few steps away from the Airport Limousine Bus terminal, taxi and city bus stops and train stations. There are nearby convenient stores, fast food stores, restaurants and street food stalls. Myeongdong Cathedral is about 5-10 minutes away on foot. Daiso, Uniqlo, ABC Mart, Folder, H & M, Top Ten etc can be found in the Myeongdong shopping district. Bus tour for Everland, Nami and Lotte World pick-up can be easily reached by walking (Myeongdong Station Exit 1, 3). The hotel also have an currency exchange machine located at the 11th floor/lobby. Eventhough our request for a late check out was not granted because we checked in late, we still recommend Hotel Skypark Myeongdong 1. We will definitely stay here again.
superb location & a comfortable stay”
i enjoyed my stay tremendously at hotel skypark myeong-dong 1. although it's small, i simply love its location. it's situated right in myeong-dong and the shopping street is at its door step! the hotel lobby is located on the 11th floor so do look out for the small hotel front signage. the hotel is clean and new and the bidet is great! i love the the decor and the lovely outdoor roof garden. i usually walk a lot when i visit seoul so i rather have a hotel conveniently situated than to have a big room. but if room size is important to you, this may not be the right hotel for you. do also take note that hotel skypark myeong-dong 3 is nearby and you don't confuse yourself with this other hotel! ;)
Well-spent Christmas Vacation”
I had a memorable Christmas 2018 holidays and of course, Hotel Skypark Myeongdong 1 is one of the reasons. It has been a while since I visited South Korea so I was really excited. The hotel is in the heart of Myeongdong, the shopping heaven! Really, really good location I must stay! We arrived around 5:30 AM from the airport. Check-in time was 2:00 PM (from what I remember) and we didn’t booked a room for the day before since it was a waste of money and half of the day, we will not occupy it. We regreted it though since we were so tired and we just wanted to sleep first. There were no available rooms when we arrived since it was peak season so we stayed and sleep in the sofas of the reception. Receptionist was accomodating. In the end, someone checked out early and we were able to have a room— we just paid an extra. Their room is quite small though, which I believe is normal for hotels in Seoul. Facilities is good for a small hotel. Aside from that, they have a mini restaurant too near the reception. Not that fancy but its okay. There are nearby coffee shops for your breakfast anyway. My main problem in this hotel was their WiFi. The internet was really slow. I thought South Korea has one of the fastest internet in the world, not in this location though. Also, if you are going to take Airport Limousine or train from/to hotel, with all your heavy luggages, it will be a challenge since the tiles of Myeongdong is not flat. Expect also a lot of people since the area is crowded. :)
It was truly a pleasant stay! ”
My group of friends and I stayed there for 8 days. It was really a pleasant stay and we would definitely go back again if we were going to Seoul. Firstly, I love it that Myeong Dong shopping area was just below the hotel. It brings shopping more convenient and more accessible. Myeong Dong shopping area closes at approximately 11pm every night and there are a variety of shops found there. (The girls and I went Crazy over Etude house, innisfree, skin food, missha, face shop and Artbox!) A number of affordable restaurants could be found below the hotel area. Myeong Dong area comes alive in the late afternoon at about 4pm where e the people of Seoul set up their 'pushcarts' and they sell a variety of things such as food, caps, clothes, bags and accessories (everyday). There are also shopping centers or bigger brands stores such as HnM. Plus it's near Myeong Dong Mrt station. A number of fast food chains could be found near the hotel as well. Paris Baguette could also be found at one of the exits at Myeong Dong Mrt station. We love this hotel for it's central location (one stop away from N Seoul Tower) and the shopping places. :) Would definitely recommend it for travellers who love to shop. ;) Also, there are a few money changers near the hotel which is important for tourists! Furthermore, the rooms are also clean and comfortable (though the rooms are not spacious). Staff are friendly and speak English and the lobby is located at the top level of the hotel. It's a little pricy though, but if you are willing to pay for the location and convenience, go for it! ;) Also, there are rooms for 3 pax. Makes it convenient for us as I travelled with two of my girlfriends. :) Overall, had a pleasant stay at the hotel and would love to stay there again if we were to go back to Seoul.
Highly recommend! Took airport bus 6015 and got off at Sejong Hotel Myeongdong Station. 5-8mins walking distance to hotel which located at Myeongdong shopping street area (At SPAO shop). Free airport express AREX passes to airport provided and staff asked us toothbrushes n toothpaste proactively during check in. Good cleanliness of room: Housekeeping replenished towels, 2 bottles of water, amenities everyday. Well service of hotel: I found the WiFi connection problem and the staff provided router to me but it had been fixed shortly. Air conditioning n in room sound proofing is good although it is located at shopping centre area. Perfect Location at shopping area: Shops, restaurants, food carts, eps Lotte, Shinsegea n Myeongdong station are closed to hotel. Face masks will be given during check out. Shuttle bus arranged at Skypark 3 to Seoul station to get AREX express to airport. (Registration needed for shuttle bus). Baggages can be kept at Skypark I or 3 after checkout.
Best location, helpful and friendly staff ”
Before booked this hotel we read some reviews saying that staying at Skypark you can bring back things you bought and then go down continue your shopping. Yes it is true, we are a group of 5, what we wanted was to buy a lot, so it is really no worry of carrying heavy shopping bags made shopping tiresome and can't buy more after our hands is full, one or two of us would bring things we bought back our hotel room then rejoin our group to shop again. Everything you want to buy in Seoul almost all can be found around this hotel. It is also less than 5min walk to Myeongdong metro station which is pick up point for most tour transports, and also easy for us to travel by train. We booked 2 rooms arrived 1 hour earlier than the check in time, the frond desk staff is so helpful that he allow us to check in one of the room which was ready. We stayed 6 nights in this hotel we highly recommend Skypark for your stay in Seoul.
Small room but very good location ”
SkyPark 1 has excellent location since it is located right next to Line Store in Myeongdong. Room is very small although we stayed in Twin Sharing. We had barely enough space to walk after opening our 2 medium luggages. Good thing is there’s a bath tub in the toilet. Our room was very clean and bed was soft and comfortable. There are also free shuttle buses from SkyPark III (walk 5 mins from SkyPark I) to Dongdaemun, Seoul Station & Shilla Duty Free that need to book in advance. On our last day in Seoul, We took the public airport limousine bus 6015 @14000KRW right in front of the SkyPark III to Incheon Airport Terminal 1. Hotel has excellent location, we get to anywhere easily. We did not try the breakfast since the room rate did not include it. There’s also free coffee /tea/ water dispenser at the lobby terrace to warm yourselves up after shopping. We will definitely stay at the SkyPark hotels in our next trip to Korea. Excellent service!
Great location and affordable room rates”
We do know about the small rooms so we do not expect a lot, in fact, the rooms looked bigger than those reviewers' photos. We booked this hotel as it is one of the cheapest in Myeongdong area. Convenience and budget is what we are looking for. Location: It is right in the middle of Myeongdong shopping area! Do a little more research and you can easily find those famous eatery like Gogung and Myeongdong Kyoja which aren't very far away from our hotel. There is also a restaurant located at 5th floor of this hotel. Go all the way straight and you will be able to find the NANTA theatre *awesome show*. Some shops which are less than about.......10 steps away are SPAO / Skinfood / Etude House. Room: We booked a standard double room and it fit comfortably for two, although not much walking space after laying flat our luggages but we have no issue for that - because most of the time we are out anyway. Room is clean and smells good when we checked in. Bathroom comes with bathtub and has heated toilet seat. However room seems to be lack of heater and it can be rather cold at night. Services: Check in time is 2pm but we managed to get our room at 1pm. Staffs are polite and speaks good English, they are also patient in giving directions and the timings for the airport bus. Overall we are pleased with Skypark I room and services, we are glad that we got the room with window. I wasn't aware that they have rooms without window until I saw their storey plan, those rooms located at the middle of floor doesn't have any and I guess that will be the most uncomfortable for me cos
Perfect location for shopaholics”
We had a very pleasant stay in Hotel Skypark Myeongdong I. In addition to its very efficient and friendly staff, it has a great location. It is in the heart of Myeongdong shopping district which is perfect for shopaholics and for foodies. Its room facilities is also very satisfactory. It's like having the comforts of your own room. We would definitely be staying in this hotel again when we come back to Seoul. Did I mention is is budget-friendly too?
Great hotel and great location”
Hotel Skypark was a great hotel. The location was fantastic. It's only 2 corners away from the subway and it was right in the heart of the Myeong-dong area. Staying in Myeong-dong area was great. It’s close to all the attractions, plenty of shopping around plus always had food to eat at all hours. We were never worried about coming back to the hotel late at night as there was always people around on the street. Hotel itself was new, clean and quiet. Breakfast had an OK buffet, not much variety but quality was good. The rooms itself were a bit small, but that was OK since we only really came back to the hotel for sleeping and dumping off our shopping goods! Compared to other hotels like Toyoko Inn, rooms were bigger and bathrooms were much more bigger and better.
Great Stay. Throughly enjoyed it. ”
We arrived early morning and when we reached Myeongdong I, they asked if we would like to change to Skypark Central - same room type at no extra charge and immediate check in. They will also sent us to Skypark Central by car. Check in is a breeze. Staff is also helpful and help us to book a day out to Everland. Self laundry machine available next door (Skypark Myeongdong II) - at KRW400. While your clothes are being washed, you can have free coffee and foot massage. Shopping, cafes, restaurants etc are within walking distance (mins away when you step out of the hotel).
A step away from the famous Myeongdong Street Shopping. A place where you can buy everything in there. Tha room was small, but its maintanced well. The room and the bathroom was cleaaaaan.. The bed is comfort enough to laydown your body after shopping in Myeongdong area. Very close to Myeongdong Station (Exit 6), so you can go anywhere via this Subway. From the Airport, i suggest to take a Limousine Bus No. 6015, especially if you bring big luggage , instead of taking an Arex or another train option, because the final stop of this Bus is close to the hotel. Have a great stay in Skypark Myeongdong I.
fantastic hotel with superb location”
Stay at the above hotel for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is just a mere 5 mins walk from myengdong station exit. The directions to the hotel from the station is extremely straightforward - making a left at the first junction upon coming up from the station and walking for 3 mins. The hotel is also situated just right above SPAO shop which makes it easily identifiable. SPAO is pretty well known in myengdong and retails clothes and kpop stuff. The room is a decent size and has all the standard amenities. Even though you may find it a little small at times, it is actually adequate. There are spaces for you to open up your luggage fully. The bathroom is also quite standard and have adequate headroom for the usage of the bathtub. The reception desk is manned by korean whom are bilingual in English, Japanese, Chinese and Korean. You just have to see who is on duty. They are also very helpful when I approached them to help me stored by perishables in their chiller as mine room chiller was already filled. Honestly I have no complaints with this hotel. Everything is coordinated well and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is the one that is the main draw for this hotel - I have to say its location is superb. The other myengdong skyparks are actually pretty similar and rated based on the luxury level. However none of the 2 other skypark hotel can be compared to this hotel's location.
This is my secobd stay in skypark hotel myeong dong and I still loved it. Although the rooms are small, the location more than compensates for it. The free hotel breakfast and wifi is also a big plus. It is right in the heart of myeong dong shopping district with lts of good shops and restaurants nearby. It is also walking distance to nam San park. the staff were really helpful in getting us transfers to the airport for out late flight.
Great location but room was a little too small”
It was a pleasant stay in Hotel Skypark, with its perfect location, right in the middle of Myeong Dong and next to subway station. Room was clean, and tidy and we liked the idea of its sky lounge that overlooks Myeong Dong. Room was a little too small though. Nonetheless, we will still be looking to stay there the next time round.
the hotel is located at the heart of myeong dong and that is where you want to stay, its only a two minute walk to the subway station and walking distance to cheongyechon stream as well as namdaemun market and isandong. the rooms are tiny so if you are looking for a big spacious room this hotel wont work for you, as for ourselves we did not mind the room size since we hardly spent any time there. the breakfast is very good and you have different options so you try something different everyday. if we go back to seoul we will definitely stay here again the staff was amazing and extremely helpful. there was one guy in particular that stay to help us after his shift was over, he helped us rent a car in jeju and gave us good advice on how to move around jeju-do.
Skypark 1 Myeongdong”
Located in the centre of the cosmetic shopping street in myeongdong near a big uniqlo and also the night eating carts and the restaurants. You will need to walk out to the main street nearby to get a taxi as the streets are filled out with people walking so cabs do not like coming in. We booked a car to bring us from the airport to the hotel and back to the airport and those are willing to drive in. Myeongdong Subway is located just around the corner to the main road. The hotel isn't very large, it sits on the 6th to the 10th floor with the lobby on the 11th floor. Rooms are very small as compared to Sejong where we stayed previously. The entrance is through a small door that leads to two lifts that can get pretty crowded at times. The hotel provides complimentary toothbrush but only at the lobby. There is a water cooler in which you can get hot and cold water on the 6th floor where we were located. Free shuttle to a few stations are located at skypark III nearby.
Excellent location in shopping heart of Seoul”
We stayed in Skypark for 1 night in Seoul, before joining our friends in another hotel for two more nights (also in Myeong Dong area). SkyPark is excellent value for money, given its location at the southern end of the Myeong Dong shopping district, which has rows and rows of cosmetics shops, fashion shops, street food, restaurants, etc. Room was also clean, albeit a bit small for two people. After the luggage was brought in, there was barely space to move. But for someplace to rest for the night, it is good enough. Nice touch also to have a small cosmetic table and desktop with internet access at the lift lobby.
Excellent Location and Friendly Staff”
this is my second stay at skypark myeongdong i. located at myeongdong shppoing area, with metro station just few steps away. friendly english speaking staff. small room - clean, quiet and equip with all you just need. airport bus station is just nearby (bus 6015 - sejong hotel stop). namdaemun and itaewon is just walking distance.
Nice cosy hotel in an excellent location”
A pleasant stay at hotel skypark. It was very clean and new as we first stepped into the hotel. I like the idea of the lobby at the top floor and a sitting lounge that overlooks the entire Myeong Dong. Room was a bit too small though. Toilet was great though. Overall it was quite a pleasant experience.
