    Best hotel in Seoul ”

    We were initially staying at AIRBNB, but the room was way too small so we decided to book Grand Hotel Myeongdong, it cost almost the same as AIRBNB, which is damn value for money. One of the best decision we made in Seoul! Upon arrival, we got a free upgrade to deluxe room, thanks to the manager on duty! The hotel staffs are all very helpful and polite. It feels super great to come back to a sparkling clean room after being out for the entire day and for hygiene purposes, they change the towels everyday. Service is really top notch! Location, it’s right smack in Myeong dong, but surprisely it’s not noisy at night. Just go with Grand Hotel, it won’t go wrong.

    Boutique Hotel in Convenient Location”

    Convenience, Proximity to Everything, Fantastic Service

    The Grand Hotel really lived up to everything I expected. It's about a 2 minute walk from the Airport Limousine 6015 Myeong Dong stop and is centrally located to everything. I loved that it was on the outskirt of Myeong Dong so it was quieter and more calm but only steps from the liveliness of Myeong Dong's shopping and eating district. The service is impeccable and the front desk staff spoke very good English. They gave me recommendations on where to eat nearby when I wanted a particular type of Korean food. The housekeeping staff was extremely pleasant and was prompt to supply me with what I needed. Unfortunately I got very ill on this trip and the staff helped me with getting a humidifier for the room and anything else I needed without bothering me. Their laundry room is free to use with one washer/dryer and you just purchase detergent pods for 1000 Won. It was super clean and quaint. Overall, it was a very comfortable stay. The only thing not really worth the price was the 16,000 Won breakfast but it was ok. Happy Hours on Friday are great - free food and drinks for hotel guests. I'll definitely be going back to The Grand Hotel next time. They also accommodated my late check out with a modest fee. There's a GS25/7-11 downstairs and tons of coffee shops nearby. I wouldn't hesitate to book this in a heartbeat if I were you.

    The hotel itself was great. The rooms are clean and the location was awesome. It's in the heart of Myeongdong shopping district and also very near to Myeong-dong subway Station so it's really convenient for us to move around. Just opposite the hotel is a convenient store which opens 24/7 plus a restaurant that opens to late night around 1am to 2am. The staffs were excellent and they were great at all times. Very helpful and also very patient with our questions and demands and also helped us with directions as well as booking taxis and other things. Highly recommended for all types of travellers who which to stay at Myeongdong area.

    The Grand Hotel Myeongdong is a boutique hotel with class, located at the heart of Seoul, very close to everything and convenient when having to use any kind of transportation. Line 4 of the Metro is just a few steps away and the bus the takes you to the airport is also steps away. The staff is the best, very helpful and courteous. Food is found in every corner and for every taste. Myeongdong, where the hotel is located, is a very lively and fun place to stay, and excellent place for shopping. One of the best hotels I’ve stayed, and would come back in a heartbeat.

    Located about 3-5 mins walk from Myeong Dong station exit 9/10. Located right in Myeondong and you may easily spend whole day in the busy town. 3-5 mins walk to bus stop which can bring you to Gangnam (Bus 140) and it only takes about 25 mins. Room is just right and cosy for couple with 2 large luggages. Asked for room service and it came within 10 mins. Staff are Super friendly and helped us to keep stuff that we accidentally left. It will be my choice again for my next trip with family ! Thanks Grand hotel :) it’s a great awesome stay !

    Favourite hotel accommodation in Myeongdong ”

    Initially planned to stay in Pacific Hotel but due to no room available, we booked the Grand Myeongdong for 7 nights. We were assigned room 309. It was worth the change. We were welcome by Hotel Reservation staff Ms B.H KIM. She was pleasant, helpful, efficient, proactive, and displayed wonderful initiatives where all hotel guest service staffs in Korea can emulate. As a recipient of numerous service excellence awards for myself, I strongly recommend that Ms B. H. KIM should be rewarded. Well done ! Ms B. H. KIM A job well done also goes to Ms Y. L. KIM for being efficient and helpful. Also to staffs Y. H HONG and Mr K. M. LEE, Mr S. M. KANG for their wonderful and excellent service and kind gestures. Kudos to them. We managed to book the Deluxe Twin room. With my two kids, we have to joint the 2 single beds so we can sleep comfortably. Our heartfelt gratitude also goes to the house keeping room attendant Miss Lee, who is polite and cheerful who was proactive and had a wonderful initiative to make our stay more memorable by arranging a queen size bedsheet cover for the 2 single beds. Such a wonderful and brilliant idea. Heartfelt gratitude goes to everyone from the hotel house keeping team. In addition, we received some wonderful snacks and drinks courtesy of the hotel initiated by GENERAL MANAGER, Mr Alex Min. A wonderful surprise, despite the small surrounding size of a 4-star hotel, this hotel sure has a 5-star service. It has lived up to its high level of service.

    i had a superb stay at Grand Hotel Myeongdong as the staff were very attentive and polite and the location is superb right smack in Myeongdong which is a great place for shopping. It is also less than 5 minutes to the Myeongdong Subway Station. What more can you ask for, this is probably the best hotel you can stay in Myeongdong. The rates are also reasonable given the location it is in. Last but not least, though the room is abit small, i find that it is cosy and comfortable. Highly recommend!

    The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Excellent service. The Grand Hotel Myeongdong is superbly located in the heart of Myeongdong, but the street in front of the hotel is not overly crowded with pedestrians or vehicles. The hotel handed out a very handy booklet for recommended places nearby to eat so we didn't get lost when we wandering around the area. The rooms are big and clean with convenient bathrooms. We could use the balcony/terrace at our leisure. We really enjoyed staying at this hotel.

    I have been to Seoul many times and each time I stay on different districts looking for one that I like most. Finally I find it in The Grand Hotel, Myengdong. Hotel locations is excellent with airport bus (6015/6001) stops round the corner, train station next to it, and lots of wonderful shops and food choices all around the hotel area. Hotel staff was so very helpful to introduce an excellent eye lash extensions place nearby. My Daughter and I both look so much prettier leaving Seoul 🤣 I will totally come back toThe Grand again when I next visit Seoul. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    If you like being close to 2 of the major markets, like walking around, like cleanliness and polite folk this is the place for you. It's about a block from Myeong-dong market (lots of food carts after 3pm, skin care galore, socks, scarves, purses... it's about 10 min walk to Namdaemum market- lots of trinkets, 100s of shoes and purses, clothes, huge indoor wholesale market there too. Lots of yummy restaurants and cafes. Many coffee cafes within steps. Great shower head and water pressure. Good sized room. Friendly staff and very helpful. We would for sure stay again. Breakfast is not worth the money- just walk close by and get one. It's a smaller hotel and perfect for any couole or single!

    This was our first stay with the Grand. We traveled in two and had a twin bedroom which was not big but comfortable enough for two ladies. Love the Innisfree toilettries. Hotel lobby provide free coffee machine we can easily have hot cocoa or cappuccino any time of the day. Staff are helpful they will even do food delivery booking for you if you need one. What most appealing to us is the Location!!! Hotel is just 2 mins walk from exit 9 and 10 of Myeongdong Station. Convenient store G25 just outside hotel. If you travel with big suitcases you may want to exit from 7 for the elevator. I will recommend this hotel for friends and will stay here again if we are in Myeongdong.

    Love the location of the Hotel, it is near to Subway station, and the airport shuttle station, it is close to the nigh market and most major shops in Myeongdong. I can get anything from here, shopping, food, the night market. Hotel itself is clean, the room though is not big, but enough space for me and my friend's luggage. Toiletries provided is complete, whatever needed is provided, disposal toothbrush provided every day, it gives body and hair shampoo, conditioner refill everyday.. bottle of waters are provided every day...nothing more to complete. Staff is friendly. If you are visiting Seoul, and no idea where to stay, this hotel is a good choice....the location is every tourist would look for.

    We booked the family room as we do not want to go back to a mini tight room like the usual hotels in Myeongdong. Airport express 6015 drops at Myeongdong Station and is just less than 3mins walk to hotel. Hotel is also just 1min walk to the start of Myeongdong street. Very convenient. Everything is good about the hotel except price is on the higher side (probably due to us booking the family room) but you pay for what you get! You also get complimentary drinks on the house on every Fri 530pm-8pm, from the lobby dining area. Recommended!

    Staffs are very easy to speak with, friendly, and swift to attend to requests. Very tidy and well equipped hotel, incomparable services, very quick and easy checkin. My booking got messed up with dates and the hotel management got it sorted out easily. Didn't realize I've booked a twin room and upon arrival I asked for an upgrade to delux double and they did without further charge. Breakfast wasn't a big selection but just adequate enough and good food. For 2 days, there were 3 dishes changed which was great for people staying for more than a day. It was a very reasonable price....and the most important was the great coffee using my own DMZ mug :) Computers work great but printer didn't coordinate with me so well. It took me 2 hours trying to figure it out... still unsuccessfully printed the document. It was a great stay so instead of one night, I extended for another night and as a result I missed the event in Daegu for not leaving Grand Hotel on schedule :)

    The Grand Myeongdong is a quaint little hotel in the heart of Myeongdong. The room was nice and neat but I'd say the location is the biggest strength here. It's right near Myeongdong Station and by the action, though it's not noisy and such. The only weakness I'd say this place has is the limited selection of breakfast, but this is minor. I'd definitely stay here again.
