How to Get There
My family stayed here for nine nights. This is an excellent hotel for extended stay. Only 5 minutes walk to Myeongdong and right at the metro station exit. The iconic Sungyemun Gate is also very visible from the hotel. There are many good restaurants and coffee shops around the hotel. We always ate nearby after a day of busy activities. Across Nandaemun-ro is a small market street leading to Myeongdong but the street sellers close early. The grand check -in lobby is at the 2nd floor and not mostly international guests. Room is sizeable and clean. Though a 4-star hotel, the breakfast buffet is of higher quality than Marriott hotels in other countries. We would like to thank the managers and staff of Momo Café who have been very helpful, friendly to take of my family during our stay. We had three rooms in our stay and a minor complaint is that only two rooms had high floor and TV tower view. The other room was facing the adjacent office building. Hope that all our rooms will have the same TV tower view in our next visit!
Stayed 7 nights. Genuinely friendly staff - it's the way they talk with sincerity and good eye contact.
From Incheon airport, there's airport limousine bus to the hotel. After dropping off, it's about 3 mins walk to the hotel. Fantastic location - Namdaemun is just across the road, Myeongdong is less than 10 minutes walk away, City Hall MRT about 7 minutes walk. The breakfast and evening cocktail hour (dinner) at the Executive Lounge were substantially good and filling, not to mention the quality of the food was excellent too. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Located in a local neighbourhood (and not office/commercial district) so lots of local colour/flavour.
Will definitely stay here again.
Excellent location just 10 minutes' walk either way to Myeongdong or Seoul Station area. Lots to eat around with 2 convenience stores just around the corner and Namdaemun market literally a stone's throw away across the street. Local restaurants and fried chicken joints abound. Public bus transport all around.
Excellent service from concierge to front desk to housekeeping to Momo cafe staff.
Rooms were big and clean. Ice machine located on every floor for customary nightcaps.
Food in Momo cafe was well presented and flavorful. Eventhough buffet breakfast items were repetitive in our 1-week stay, we found the ingredients always fresh, not leftovers from the previous day.
This will be our go-to hotel in Seoul from now on.
