Best location in myeongdong seoul”

Prefect location in Myeong-dong, just 1-2 minutes of walk will reach the heart of Seoul Shopping Streets and 30 minutes slow walk can reach Dongdaemun Market. Direct opposite the hotel, there is a 7-11 convenience store can get all your bottled water needs. There are famous Korea ginseng soup and beef Ox tail soup just opposite the hotel too. There are 2 trains stations within 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel. The head Manager of Royal Hotel Seoul assisted us (a family of 4) to change to a proper room with 1 Queen sized bed and 2 singles and even gave us free welcome drinks (orange juices) at the ground floor garden restaurant. Overall it’s a popular hotel, it’s fully booked in Oct. Tour Vehicles will find it hard to return guests back to hotel lobby at night cause majority roads will be closed for night markets. There was this one night we had to be dropped opposite the main road to walk 10 minutes in as the taxi driver can managed to drive in with all the jams.

Small rooms, but value at a Superb location”

Location; Public Transportation; Heart of the City

I frequently travel to South Korea and ave stayed at a variety of hotels. The Royal hotel is an excellent choice for staying in Seoul. It is located in the heart of Myeong-Dong, the city centre of Seoul. The hotel can easily be reached from the airport with Airport bus 6015 (10,000 KRW or 11 USD - exit at Eulji-ro ipgu). The bus travel takes about 1 hr and tickets are available in the boots near the bus stops just outside the arrival teerminal. Staff speaks English and credit cards are accepted. Avoid bus 6001, which comes to Eulji-ro ipgu as well, but is more expensive and takes 30 minutes more. Traveling by airport limousine bus is by far the best way to get from the airport to hotels. The rooms in the hotel are small, but clean and fully equipped. I found the room comfortable and enjoyed my stay. There are two subway stations near on 2 different lines. It is easy to reach most part of the city quick. The level of English in Korea has increased since 6 years ago when I first traveled. Although Itaewon district is still to be considered the place where foreigners can easily find their way, I find that Myong-Dong has caught up and many Koreans can speak a bit English here too. Excellent hotel at reasonable price. Following western system of stars for hotels I'd say 3+ stars, close to 4-star hotel.

The location is one of the best part about this hotel, it's right in the middle of Myeong-dong. Shopping and food are easily accessible, all the staff speak good English and were very attentive. There's a free shuttle bus service to/from Seoul station and both Seoul & Gimpo airports. Room is of a decent size, beautifully decorated and bed was comfortable. Will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Seoul!

Seoul Royal”

Great location.
Airport transportation limited.

I only stayed in the Seoul Royal hotel for one night as was heading up to airport but found the hotel to be excllent value. The location was superb being right in the heart of one of Seouls shopping and market areas. The staff were friendly and had good english. The room itself was spotless, we stayed in a triple room as it was all they had available due to being fully booked. This room would be ample for a family, it was large, clean, comfortable and fairly priced. The only negative we found was that the free airport shuttle bus times was limited, and the stop for the public transport one was a short walk round the corner. However it was cheap and ran every 20 - 25 minutes.

best location, clean room, friendly staff

We arrived at the hotel at 4 pm, very friendly staff, neat and nice hotel, afte taking a nap, we woke up and going down at 7 pm. Voila, a crowded night market just next to the hotel! It is a United Nations funded restoration area with beautiful brick roads intesecting one another, literally with hundreds of stores, food, clothing/fashions, souvenir, luggage, cosmetics, you name it. Clean but crowded and orderly. A lot of food! The hotel is 5-7 minute walk to the closest euljiro, and 10 minutes to the other 2 euljiro subway gates. Airport shuttle from incheon knows where to stop for Royal Hotel, the bus stops behind this hotel, hence we needed to walk about 6-7 minutes (with luggage) and needed to ask people where the hotel is since we could not see the hotel due to another tall building behind the hotel. overall it was no big deal. But the hotel provided airport shuttle on the way back, do not forget to schedule itu right away after you check in. he hotel has a very good wifi at room. Very close to cultural places, 10-12 minute walking distance to the river Walk Cheong Gyecheon, 10 minutes later to Saejong Daero where Admiral Yi Soon Shin and King Saejong monument is, another 10 minutes walk s will arrive at Gyung Bok Gung. The Grand palace. We walked from Gyung Bok Gung about 12 minutes to Deuk Su Gung and then another 15 minutes to Namdae Moon Market. Voila, Our hotel is about 10 minutes from Nam Dae Moon market. if you like Korean food, the hotel is agreat location. You would find within 10 minutes walk peripheral hundreds of small restaurants from soups to grill! not to mention minimarket. you won't be hungry, the price is good. lotte, and dept stores are also in 10 minutes distance.

Short Weekend at Myeongdong”

Royal Hotel Seoul is smack right in the top of the hill of Myeongdong where the night market is. Opposite it is 7-11 and a 24/7 Korean sliced beef stew shop that also serves the best kimchi (very garlicky). Hotel is posh looking from the outside; very brightly lit which makes it easy to recognise at night. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Royal Hotel Seoul is pretty well known by cab drivers so it is a plus point for ease of going back to hotel after a drinking session.

The best bed I've found in Korea”

Comfortable bed, pillows like heaven, free drinks, food, etc in the executive lounge, very clean

great hotel. we have yet to find a hotel in korea that feels like one in north america (size, comfort, etc) but this one comes close. the beds were very comfortable, which is a rare find here, and the pillows were divine. the room and hotel in general was very clean. the staff was helpful, spoke very good english, and there was even money exchange service. we stayed on one of the executive floors which offered an executive lounge with free drinks (soft drinks as well as a happy hour with free alcohol), food, and some of the best hot chocolate we have ever tasted. also a big plus for this hotel is that the cab driver knew exactly what we were talking about ( if you have ever stayed in seoul you know how great that is!), and the location is phenomenal. for the money you can definitely find a cheaper hotel that you may be just as satisfied with, but overall we were very happy with our experience at the seoul royal.

Pleasant stay”

We had a pleasant stay at Royal Hotel Seoul. It’s easy to find. Just take bus 6015 from the airport and hop off at Ibis Hotel or the next stop. The room is adequately spacious and the hotel staff are nice. They can let you check in early starting at 10am for 11usd per hour, which we graciously took as we arrived at 8am. What I like most is the rooms are really quiet. I noticed though that they had a double bed for a king size bedroom. We immediately requested for a room change as my husband and I don’t fit in a double bed. They were kind enough to transfer us to another room. The pillows are a bit small but we didn’t mind. Try to avail of their airport shuttle to save money!

Exceeded my expectations”

The best thing is that they were very accomadating to US speaking citizens.

It was a great stay. My room was very nice and the hotel staff was very helpful. I don't speak any Korean but they were able to help me find my way around. I actually had no problems with not knowing the language during my whole trip. One nice moment was at the end when I was about to hop in a van that was going to the airport. The hotel doorman told me that it was dangerous and I should instead use another bus. He walked a far ways away from the hotel to show me where to go. I will stay at this hotel again and recommend to my closest friends. I don't usually recommend hotels. But when I do it is the Royal Hotel Seoul. Stay thirsty my friends!

Best location”

I had to use early check in and the process was clear and simple. Extra cost is needed based on room availability. Reception was good and kind. Most of all, the location is great I can easily access anywhere in Myeong dong. I always use this hotel when I go to Seoul and it proves my decision is right whenever I visit.

Central of everything ”

Location, Food and Transport - pretty much the essentials when booking a place

Seoul Royal is in the heart of Myeongdong. Everything is just at your doorstep. You will find money exchange places just around the corner, restaurants, food stalls, taxi and many more just in walking distance. The hotel I booked for was a twin share, a bit small but it's still lovely, ,clean and good service. We arrived at the hotel checked in and after we came back from a long day of shopping. we saw 2 bottles of wine as a welcome gift. Everyday after room service we would be rewarded with chocolates as a good night gift. I found that this was very sweet and thoughtful. If you ever get lost there are English and Chinese speaking tour guides around the area (wearing a red coat) to direct you where you would like to go. A step outside of the hotel and food, night markets, shopping and taxi is at your door step. A 3 minute walk and you will reach Myeongdong subway. Walking distance places: 1. N Seoul tower cable car - 15 mins 2. Insadong - 10 mins 3. Subway - 3 to 5 mins I would definitely recommend this hotel for those who would like to shop till you drop, because is walking distance to drop off your bags and go for more. A place to eat and for night markets.

Great Hotel ”

+Its in myeongdong but away from the hustle and bustle which makes it more quiet and relaxing. Shops are walking distance . The nearby Church is also a breather . Infront, there is 711 , Starbucks, Korean eatery(underground), etc. and Paris Baguette cafe and bakery near beside the hotel. Room is big enough. Free shuttle to/and from airport and Seoul station but with a limited time schedule. I didn't bother to check train stations distance as I always ride the free shuttle to Seoul station at 11am. -it's a hit and miss when it comes to taxi going back to the hotel due to the crowd and traffic jam. You can change your pin location maybe to myeongdong cathedral and walk a bit to the hotel. It's the easiest way possible. The carpet seems stuffy but the hotel cleaned it and provided an air humidifier upon request. Overall, it is still highly recommended . The hotel price is a bit higher but you will get what you paid for.

Great location with a reasonable size room”

Location is the best for shopping

7-11 is just a stone throw away. Myeong Dong shopping and shopping carts are all a stone throw from the hotel too. Shopping till 11pm. A lot of restaurants and cafe nearby. Staffs able to speak English n Chinese. Rooms are comfy and clean. My twin bedded room consider Spacious and not too small. Only bad point is finding the Hotel when u alighted from the 6015 bus stop. Juz walk the route like a letter 'C' and u will b able to find. Let say the bus stop is at 630 position on a clock, the hotel is at the 12 position.

Great Stay at Royal”

Spacious Room, staff are very friendly and speak good English
Internet in the room is rate per day and not that pricey.

The location of the hotel is convenient, walking a minute or two you are surrounded with shops at Myeong-dong. There is free shuttle provided but need to check the time schedule with the concierge. There is paid airport shuttle also where they drop you (not in front of the hotel) but very convenient. Cheaper if you take the shuttle than taxi as it is about 1hour10minutes to get to the hotel. The subway station is about 5 minute's walk from the hotel. Highly recommended to stay here.

Beyond Expectation”

The location of the hotel is probably the best thing ever, smack in the heart of Myeong dong, close to the subway - only 5 mins walk down the hill. The room was spacious and comfortable for my old folks that we are able to layout our 4 luggages and still able to walk around. Everything is comfortable but only the centralised AC is the down side as we are unable to either turn the ac up or down due to the drastic change of weather at night and morning. Other than that it was good! will definitely be back!!
