Neighbourhood
Myeongdong / Namdaemun
Arguably Seoul’s most famous neighbourhood and undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of one another. The rise in popularity of Korean cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a must-see for visitors who come and marvel at Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and Shinsaegae’s massive department stores are also popular draws for both Korean and luxury products. The department stores, just like Myeongdong’s streets, are crowded around the clock. Myeongdong’s many street food carts are also immensely popular for their inexpensive and quirky offerings (French-fry-encrusted corn dogs, anyone?). The neighbourhood’s popularity, as well as its close proximity to other popular sights and neighbourhoods, makes it one of Seoul’s most popular places to stay.

We were sent here on a Air Asiana stopover flight, and whilst they said it was five star, and it wasn’t, it was still very good. If you are flying through it’s worth bearing in mind that it is right in the middle of Seoul. That means in reality that it’s about an hour door to

Got in after being up for 24 hours, and pleasantly surprised at very nice room! Located on a main 4 lane road but it was so quiet and the room was very nice. Especially LOVED the warm toilet seat!! Very close to loads of shopping, eateries, subway etc.

There are two huge department stores nearby, Lotte Department Store and Shinsegae Department Store, about 5 minutes of walking from Royal Hotel Seoul. Royal Hotel Seoul also is in Myeongdong, which itself is an outdoor shopping mall. There are hundreds of stores and restaurants around. There is also a large underground market in Myeongdong. The subway stations are about 5 minutes of walking from the Hotel. Gyeongbokgung Palace and Cheonggyecheon Stream are nearby. We walked to these from the Hotel.

The hotel is exactly at the unsheltered big shopping complex. But if you are looking for particular shopping mall, Lotte department store is about 15 mins walk from the hotel.

The hotel provides free shuttle bus from and to both Incheon and Gimpo Airport. However, it runs only twice a day - from Hotel to airports at 6:00 AM and 16:00 PM, and from airports to Hotel at 13:30 PM and 20:00 PM. If the time is not convenient for you, you can take limousine bus 6015, which stops a block from the Hotel. That is what we did.
