A Vibrant Oasis in Myeongdong: Royal Hotel Seoul”

Located right in the heart of Myeongdong, this hotel offers the perfect blend of comfort, convenience, and vibrant city life, making it an ideal choice for travelers seeking an unforgettable experience in Seoul. The hotel's prime location in Myeongdong means that guests are just steps away from a plethora of street food stalls, shops, and bustling markets. Whether you're in the mood for Korean barbecue, traditional snacks, or international cuisine, the variety of dining options nearby ensures that every palate is satisfied. Plus, with the convenience of being able to explore Myeongdong's vibrant nightlife just steps away from the hotel, guests can enjoy the city's energy late into the night. The spacious and comfortable rooms at Royal Hotel Seoul provide the perfect retreat after a day of exploring the city.

High-quality hotel with impressive standards in the Mueang Dong area”

Our family stayed at this hotel with a 7-year-old child. When booking, we did not specify that we had a child with us. When checking in at the hotel counter, the check-in staff was very accommodating and helpful. They helped us print the RTPCT test certificate for free and provided good travel advice. The lobby atmosphere was very relaxing, as if we were staying at an important place in Korea. When we woke up in the morning and wanted to sit down to work and have a cup of coffee, the Starbucks in front of the hotel was open from 7 am. If you want to book this hotel, I recommend getting off at Myeongdong Station and exiting at Gate 7 or 8. However, Gate 7 has an escalator. The room was very standard with a large comfortable bed and premium amenities. We slept very well after a tiring day of sightseeing. When filling out the K-ETA registration before entering Korea, we specified that we booked this hotel. The approval result came back very quickly, within 30 minutes. I highly recommend this area for Thai or foreign visitors who want to stay in South Korea. Very impressed.

Best Hotel for first time in Seoul”

It's not my first time in Seoul, particularly in this hotel. My first time was during the World Scouts Jamboree. So when I decided to come back with my family, I have no other hotel to think of, but the Royal Hotel Seoul. The reason why I love this hotel is its location. It perfectly situated in Myeongdong where you'll experience the best Seoul experience because of the street foods and the shops. I am sure my wife loved it because of the beauty products/shops scattered in Myeongdong. Also, it is very accessible to public transport, especially the railway that will connect you to other beautiful places of South Korea. As to the room, hotel facilities and guests relations, this hotel offered me a perfect deal. The room was good. Make up room was excellent. Elevator is not slow so there's no guests congregating in the first floor waiting for the lifts. Lobby was very welcoming. Hotel Staffs are the best! In fact, I decided to extend one night and the transaction was very smooth. So if you are looking for a perfect hotel to stay in Seoul, I strongly recommend Royal Hotel Seoul. For sure, I'll be back here!

My fav amazing hotel.”

When I choose my hotel for journey to Seoul, Royal Hotel is always my top list. It has its own vibe and always satistying. 1. Great Location. If you have your plan to travel to Myeongdong, Royal Hotel could be the best choice. It's very easy to go public transportations spot and go to anywhere famous old palace or department store. 2. Friendly and kind staffs. I've always chosen this hotel for over 8 years and the staffs always kind and helpful. Of course, there could be exceptional situation of person, but mostly good. 3. A clean hotel. While I've spent my time for years, the sanitary could be kept fine level. Not super clean like seven star hotel but at least it always keeps fine level. I really love this place and I'll definitely come again. :D
