    Good Location”

    What I love in this hotel is that it has a very good location. It is very accessible to train station, shops and food stalls. It is not recommended for travelers with small kids since the rooms are just small. I think this is best for travelers who are out of the hotel all the time.

    Everytime i visit Korea, I never miss to stay in this place. Wonderful and accomodating staff, location is great. It is just a walking distance to major shops in Myeongdong. Breakfast is included (cereal, coffee egg, milk) which is a plus if you are on a budget. I would recommend this place to my friends if they visit Seoul

    Great location, homey, and nice and helpful staff!”

    Pros: location is very near subway, there is free simple breakfast (it is really up to you to make a variety of what you will prepare everyday). Rooms are comfortably clean, they have elevators since the hotel rooms are in the 5th, 6th, and 7th floors. It is near Myeongdong Station (light blue line) exit 9 or 10. The location is near Myeongdong shopping street but in the quieter side and best of all, the staff is nice and super helpful. Cons: I could not think of any, except for the little noise in the kitchen (since our room is practically just beside it) every time there are people there (but very tolerable). Thanks for the comfortable stay. We’ll surely be back in this hotel if we come back to Seoul.

    Great Location, suitable for short stay”

    I travelled alone and stayed in this hotel. The room was quite small but good enough for me as a solo traveller. The challenge I had though was none of the staff are fluent in English so I had a hard time communicating. Also - after a certain time in the evening (I arrived at the hotel at 7), the keys and instructions were left at the counter for us to claim with no assistance - the front desk wasn’t 24/7. They also don’t clean your room daily so I was a bit surprised coming back to my room the way I left it. But overall, good enough place to stay in for a short trip in Seoul - located in the relatively quieter area in Myeongdong and yet not far from the main shopping district.

    Good Location”

    Pros: - Airport Bus is 3-5min walk away - Located at Myeongdong - lots of restaurants, cosmetic shops and cafes nearby - Elevator at the building - Helpful and friendly staff - Heater in room during winter - There's a kettle in the room - but have to get paper cups from the shared kitchen - Weighing machine available at the lobby Cons: - Heater doesn't seem to be working in the room in the last few days i was staying there - Walls are not sound proof - could hear people talking, slamming their doors and walking outside even though my room was right at the end - My room has a bit of a foul smell coming from the toilet but i got used to it - No safety lock in the room Other comments: I would consider young residence hotel myeongdong to be more of a guesthouse than a hotel. Like other guesthouses, there is bread, jam, butter, egg for breakfast. They only do housekeeping upon request, but if you would like to clear your bins, just put it outside the room.

    Great Location with Warm Room”

    This Residence is fine with good location right behind Sejong Hotel and comes with a lift for easy access. Even though I was not allowed any control of the room's temperature, I was able to feedback and have my room kept warm throughout. The only worry I have was the main glass door with keypad lock on Level 6 (where my room was) was kept open after midnight. Felt a bit insecure cos I was alone, in a room closest to this main door, with the reception far away (1 floor down). The room was a good deal nonetheless.

    I came to the hotel at around 8pm and the reception was already closed but they left a letter about the infos and my room key. They gave me the room 505 which was very clean when i came. Love the shower and floor heater. Stayed for 5 nights and the weather was very cold but good thing there’s a floor heater that helps to keep me warm at night. Near to the shopping district and myeongdong station exit number 9 and 10. Near restaurants and convenient stores! It was really a good experience!

    Excellent location and great security features”

    Loved the fantastic location! It was near both the shopping streets and subway. I could easily carry my purchases back to my room before continuing to shop on! Many great restaurants and cafes were a stone throw away. As a solo traveler, I greatly appreciate the security lock features of Goodstay Nana Residences. A tap key is required before anyone could enter the accommodation at that floor, allowing me to feel very secure and at ease during my stay. Wifi was great and I could stream videos quickly and effortlessly in the comfort of my room. The staff were all very polite and one of them could speak excellent English, making communication a breeze. All in all I enjoyed my stay and would come back to stay again.
