Hi guys,

I would strongly recommend Airbnb if you are comfortable without breakfast/swimming pool/gym.

I stayed in Sinsa (Gangnam) and Jongno area. The apartments all clean and nice. I have positive experiences so far.
hi looking at airbnb too..
can share with me which one u stay ?

Just stayed one night at Metro Hotel in Myeongdong.
Located at the north part of Myeongdong.
They totally renovated the hotel and it looks nice and modern now.
Free wifi, decent tv but the rooms are a bit on the small side.

Very convenient to get to the airport as there is a limo bus just one block away.
Subway station is also in the same area.

If u book on their website, u get a free breakfast.
Breakfast is not bad, a decent selection of breads, fruit, some korean dishes, eggs etc.

The price can be a bit high depending on the dates.
If the price is high, then it probably isnt worth staying there.
If u can get the rooms at a good price, Metro hotel provides good value.

I have 3 hotels in mind:

1. Ekonomy Hotel Myeongdong Premier/Central
2. Savoy Hotel
3. Hotel Skypark Myeongdong I / II / III / Central

Anyone stayed in any one of the hotels listed above in Myeongdong area before and care to share your experience?

Going to stay for 16 nights
Any reviews on Ekonomy Premier?

Looks very near Metro.

Any reviews on Ekonomy Premier?

Looks very near Metro.
Its very close to exit 5 / 6 of the subway.

But the TWIN room is super duper small at 9.6sqm !!! If you just need a place to sleep and don't mind the small space, its fine.

Weekday rates can be lower than SGD$90 / night including tax.

Peyto Gangnam is not recommended.
Near subway but nothing much in that part of gangnam.
Not many restaurants around though there are a few cafes.

The rooms are also not very soundproof n street noise is very audible.

Never stayed at any of these but:

-Sheraton Incheon Hotel is in Incheon and not in Seoul
-Grand Hyatt Seoul is not really close to a subway station. Dont recommend it.

The M plaza location is quite good.
Off on a side street so not too crowded or noisy.

Ello guys! I have a group of 2 elders + 6 adults + 1 child going to Korea in April and we plan to stay 5nights in Seoul. The last time I went in 2013, my friend booked Metro Hotel at MyeongDong for us which I felt was okay (quite near station) but seemed a bit expensive. Looking at the rate now, it's $139/night after taxes per normal room.

Was wondering if:-
1. Is $140 considered mid-range or expensive for MyeongDong hotels? We have 2 elderly with us (56/61yo), would like to make things easier in the event we have to carry their luggage for them (aka accessibility more important) and
2. Should we try for airbnb instead? Suspect that any airbnb in MyeongDong might cost almost as much as a hotel room and would be cramped, in which case I would rather go for hotel since no need to share toilet haha. Would be great if someone could compare both for me.

TIA!

MyeongDong hotels last check is about 80+ per nite for two if u r staying at 3 stars hotel ...

depending on how many person u have in the room
what type of room u r looking at ...

if u r going with elderly, would be good to stay nearby shopping malls , so that at least if they wanna walk walk abit, also no need to travel so far ...
