Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower

Lotte Hotel Seoul Executive Tower

Myeong-dong Seoul|2.62km from Lock Museum
Stayed at the Lotte Executive Tower just after the holidays, in a Premier Double Room. Pros: - The entrance of the Executive Tower is absolutely beautiful. Same with the Main Tower. Elegant, refined, beautiful art work. The executive tower check-in desks are on the 15th floor. - Easy access by escalator directly into the Lotte Department Store (from where the escalator takes you to, hang a right to get to the famous food hall!) - Location can’t be beat. Directly across from Eujiro Station (1) and around the corner from Myeong-Dong Walking Street / Night Market and several 7-11s (which are almost as good as the 7-11s in Japan). - Our room was beautiful, spacious, thoughtfully designed and decorated. Very modern touches and upscale finishes. A chandelier in the bathroom?? - Immaculate housekeeping. - Excellent temperature and very strong water pressure in the shower! - Appreciate the 2 complimentary bottles of Evian every day. - Fast wifi speeds. Cons: - Love the Diptyque toiletries but wish they weren’t the communal / shared bottles. There were bits of dried lotion crusted on the pump from the previous occupant. - Weird that neither lobby had a single chair to sit on. What’s up with that? Comes off a bit inhospitable. This isn’t the type of place to attract non-guests / loiterers. A bench wouldn’t kill anyone! - For a 5* hotel and the price we’re paying, it’s disappointing that there is a surcharge should you need a toothbrush, toothpaste or use of the sauna (!!). They claim the charge for toothbrush and paste is to prevent wastage but surely you could just have these small items available upon request at the front desk? - The doormen’s manners range from formal and friendly (some) to indifferent (most) to downright hostile (many), especially if you are not a Korean speaker, as many don’t speak English. I’m not arrogant enough to think they should speak English in a non-English speaking country, but a smile is universal, you know? Would likely stay here again at the right price and given the location.

Snowflower Guesthouse

Snowflower Guesthouse

University Road area Seoul|0.74km from Lock Museum
The guesthouse is within walking distance from Hyehwa Station. The nightlife around this estate is also very lively, so rest assured should you need to return back later in the evening. The complimentary breakfast served is decent - you get a choice of toasted bread with spread, instant ramen or oatmeal. This is coupled with some milk, fruit juice, coffee, tea and water. However, you will need to prepare the meals yourself and clean the dishes after that. A caution that the room can seem rather small and cramped (for those needing a spacious design when selecting your overseas accommodation). My individual shower facilities also had a stench odour of what seemed like sewage, which was the main disappointing portion. If not, the rest of the facilities are good enough - e.g. The toilet bowls are clean and fitted with smart toilet seats, providing a warm sitting experience for those relieving yourselves during the winter season in Korea. The hosts were also very friendly, despite their limited proficiency in spoken English Language. There is also a shared desktop computer for your internet usage in the balcony, as well as a smart television in each room with internet-based programmes (e.g. Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus etc.). I will strongly recommend this accommodation to those seeking a value-for-money option, solo travellers wanting a communal yet safe space to have a roof under their heads for the night. Not for the introverted nature - you will have plenty of opportunities to interact and dine with many strangers, of which some might become your global friend!

Dongdaemun Market
Every time I go to South Korea, I live in their home, I can cook by myself, the boss speaks Chinese, it is safe to live there, the room is clean, and the toothpaste inside is very easy to use. I want to know where I bought the toothpaste? I originally planned to go to South Korea from March 13th to 17th. Now the epidemic situation can't be controlled. I'm really drunk. When the epidemic situation ends, I will fly to Korea and live in your home. I am used to a friendly shop.

Dongdaemun Market
The landlord speaks some Chinese and English and is also accessible. It's super close to Dongdaemun Station of Subway Line 4. It's not far from Gwangjang Market. It's a ten-minute walk. Very delicious. The hotel is clean. It is a bit like a homestay but very welcoming. Will consider staying here next time

Dongdaemun Market
In 2024, South Korea🇰🇷The first flight to Seoul chose to stay at the Gru Hotel near Dongdaemun🏨The hotel space is okay. It is only one stop away from Lines 1 and 4, especially it is very convenient to go to Seoul University Road. There is also a bar on the first floor of the hotel.

Dongdaemun Market
The young lady at the front desk of the hotel is super good, and the booking on Ctrip is also very fast. We searched for several hotels, but they were all booked and refunded, and the online and offline were inconsistent. This one was booked online, and an email was sent immediately, very much. There is a convenience store around, and you can store your luggage in advance. It's very good. There is a big cockroach in the room, and the trembling slippers are killed. I still hope that the cleaning can be done. thanks

Mayplace Hotel

University Road area
It's a difficult location to find. It might be easier to find it if you look for the Hyundai Headquarters or the Orakai Hotel across the street. There are several subway stations in the area, but they are all within a 15-minute walk. There is no bus stop nearby and there are various courses, so you need to do some research. There are three convenience stores within a four-minute walk. The front desk was nice, but the room was small and I didn't know if I had upgraded to a superior type room. It is a room that has been elaborated.
