Good location”

Overall I should say Summit Hotel Dongdaemun is a very good hotel to stay in Seoul as its close to all the shoppings and with the airport bus stopping right in front of the hotel door. The only negative remarks I have to say is the hotel room is rather small for 3 persons and there is no porter to assist you at the hotel. On a final note, I would say I would stay at Summit Hotel again if I were to visit Seoul again. Thanks to Summit Hotel Dongdaemun staff for the excellent service and pleasant stay.

Hotel to stay while in Seoul”

The hotel was superb. Great location. 5 minute leisurely walk to Dongdaemun History and Culture Plaza Station (lines 2,4,5). Walking distance to the Dongdaemun shopping area. Food establishments 2-3 mins away. Staff were very helpful and served with a ready smile. Even the cleaning lady was cheerful and gave us whatever extra amenities we needed. Room was spacious and clean. Wi-fi was strong. To top it all, the airport limousine bus stopped right in front of the hotel entrance and so with all our luggage, there was no hassle of getting a ride to the airport. Really, really convenient. Only drawback (if you can call it that) was that there was no breakfast included with the rooms. Other than that, everything was ok. I recommend this hotel for a place to relax and rest after a whole day touring the city.

comfortable room and bathroom. the staff were very helpful and polite n accomodating. the ambience is good too. centrally located. clean n tidy.

I enjoyed my stay at the Summit Hotel Dongdaemun and will stay there again if I visit Seoul again. I felt at home. My only suggestion is that the breakfast menu should change from day to day and provision for chicken or beef dishes should be made as not everyone eats pork. Otherwise I recommend the hotel to travellers to stay. Black Tea sachets should be provided in the rooms. Breakfast coupons were supplied for one person only when there were two. A set of breakfast coupons had to be paid for separately. Nevertheless I like the hotel very much.

I stayed in Summit Hotel for 5 nights. The location is absolutely ideal for shopping and wandering around. A lot of department stores, restaurants, convenient stores and shopping streets are nearby. Also it only took us 5-10 minutes walk to the bus stop or the station. Rooms are really nice. The staff can speak English fluently and help us a lot. I appreciated their help during our stay in Korea. My whole family were very satisfied. I definely will stay in this hotel again if I have a chance to travel to Korea next time.

Absolutely impressive!”

I'm so impressive with the hotel cleanliness and amenities. Hotel maid has done a fantastic job everyday of my stay. Even the slippers were changed everyday. Airport bus stop is right in front of the hotel. City bus stop though is 3-5 minutes walk away. One in front of KY Heritage/DDM cultural center Subway entrance is 광희동 stop. You may take the green bus from herr to transfer to many other buses at 종로 3가. Another stop is at the other end of the street around Dongguk Uni subway stn called 장충동.동국대입구. This one is nearer to the hotel but not many buses. Across the street from the hotel in the lane next to GS25, there's food street at night including the 24 hr restaurant. All in all Summit Hotel is convenient and clean with helpful friendly staff. Will definitely go back and totally recommend.

Very friendly and helpful staff (they can speak English very well). Clean hotel, but too bad we stayed there for 9 nights they didn't change the blankets even had a food stains on it). Airport shuttle bus stop just in front of the hotel; so much subway station gate nearby (around minutes by walk); close to convenience store, bread shop (Tous Le Jours and Subway) and Starbucks; close to dongdaemun market and so much restaurants nearby (around 15 minutes walk); only around 15 minutes by taxi to go to Myeongdong, Namdaemun, Itaewon, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul Tower.

A room is small but neat, clean, a bathroom has a warm toilet seat. A person in a front desk is very helpful. Will stay in this hotel next time

we booked last minute and it was great”

cleanliness, staff service, location

We booked this last minute as our booking at Airbnb did not work out that well. we canceled and had to find another hotel at 2am for next day. Found this one with great location and almost lowest price i can find near the central Seoul area. It was only 5min walk from the station and you can walk to the Dondaemon shopping district. Since that shopping area opens til 5am, we shopped til 2am and walked back to hotel. Even saved Taxi cost. Hotel reception was very nice and helpful. Answered all my questions and helped me write down address in Korean so I can show the taxi drivers (which was VERY helpful since most taxi drivers don't speak EN) Room & washroom was really clean; we had a bad experience with the previous place so we were real sensitive with the hygiene, and this was 9/10. Size is good, just a bit crowded with the luggage open, but very acceptable. The only thing i wold criticize is that the water went down really slow in the tub, I told front desk about this and they said they'd check it out, but it wasn't fixed when we came back. I assumed it was not fixable, but I stayed only 2 nights so was not a big concern. Overall very good and I recommend to anyone who want a decent comfortable and clean hotel at reasonable price.

Great Hotel!”

Location, Staff, Comfort

We were impressed with this hotel. We booked the Twin Deluxe. The room was just right for the 3 of us. The bed was really comfortable, clean room and staff could speak good English. They even provided us with breakfast coupons although we did not book the room with breakfast. However, the coupons were only meant for 1 person but there were 3 of us. It was a great gesture anyway. About 10 to 15 minutes walk away from Dongdaemun shopping district and subway. There were many restaurants nearby. The only drawback is that if your room is closed to the road, you could hear the vehicles outside as the rooms are not very soundproof. We would definitely return to stay at this hotel again! Keep up the good work!

Great value for money”

Stayed for 7 nights in the royal twin room. While the room was meant for 4 pax, the space was quite small for walking after placing 2 luggages. Given that our intent is to stay in one room as a family, for the price we paid, the room is considered good value for money. Room was clean and quiet as we requested for higher floor. Hotel was a good 8 mins walk from the main Dongdaemun shopping area and the Dongdaemun history and cultural park subway station. Airport limousine bus stop is right in front of the hotel. So it is convenient for airport transfer. Will stay again if I visit Seoul again.

Two nights at Summit.”

This hotel met my requirements of price, location, and amenities. While this hotel is not extravagant, it does meet my "baseline" standard. The Summit met my needs for what I had planned that weekend. One thing worth mentioning, and this is a big thing for me, is the bed and pillows. Most places I've stayed throughout Seoul seems to have hard beds and small/soft pillows. I'm a big guy with a heavy head, (haha), so decent pillows are a must. All in all, I slept good on their bed and pillows decent.

Friendly & accommodating staff, location & stores/restaurants nearby

This hotel is conveniently located between the Dogguk University Station for Subway Line 3 and Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station (Lines 2, 4 & 5). Plenty of restaurants, stores around the area. For being in the city, the hotel rooms are incredibly quiet. More importantly, the front desk staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. Loved the fact that there's a bank literally on the premises where we could use the ATM to withdraw money. There's a grocery store close by as well as a Paris Baguette & Tout Les Jour bakery nearby.

Hallelujah ”

We started out our Korea experience at one of the cheaper "motels" that was claimed to be an amazing option for the money. Horrified by the standards we sought out sanctuary for a clean, quiet and non decaying place to stay. The summit was a welcome savior being exceptionally clean, quiet, and centrally located to absolutely most everything you'd want to do in Seoul. Subway stations were a 10-15 min walk, close to multiple markets, art districts, close convince stores and coffee shops to walk to, as well as a very accommodating and professional staff. (English secondary but fluent and easy to work with)

near shopping center,clean,new

-This hotel is very clean and new.I stay at corner twin room (hear the sound of the elevator and walking,which is really bad) -From Incheon airport you can take a Limusine Bus no.6001 (14,000w) its take about 1.45hrs ,Limusine bus is more convenient than the subway(for those who have a big luggage) -The hotel is not far from the bus stop(Toyoko inn bus stop),about 5mins walk. -Near the hotel have a small supermarket that you can buy a things in lower price. -You can walk to the shopping center ;Lotte young plaza,Dongdaemun

Well Done Summit.”

clean, upgraded room, close to dongdaemun shopping area

My initial choice of Seoul was to stay in the Myeongdong area. With no luck, I decided to expand my location to Dongdaemun knowing the metro was not far away. Upon check it, the kind staff promptly checked us in and to our delight complementary upgraded our room size. The lobby was large, well lit and had a cafe. It was extremely clean. Upon arrival to our room, we found one large queen bed and one single, a desk, chair, closet, full length mirror, a night table with lamp, bedside lighting controls, coffee, tea, kettle, two mugs, two bottles of water, a bathroom with great vanity space, lots of toiletries and bathtub. The room had no odour as it was extremely new and was very comfortable. We called for more towels and were promptly met with our request. My friend decided to take a shower and we noticed the drain was slow in the tub. It was as if it was plugged. We thought maybe it will be better the next morning and decided to relax and not stress about it. The next day, the problem continued and we left a note for housekeeping and went about our day. Unfortunately, the problem was still not resolved and we spoke to the front desk about it. They informed us they would call in an engineer to tend to the problem. The situation had improved slightly however, water was still slow draining. The one downside of the tub was the drain would privet as the water ran and caused the drain to close. We eventually became used to the situation and overlooked it in comparison to the benefits.

Exceptional”

Nice hotel with good service. Walkable to dongdaemun culture station. Booked nami island and everland package and meeting point is at this station as well. Super convenient. We stayed in royal twin with two queen beds. Suit my two kids age 10 and 8. Marts are nearby as well. Only thing is the pillows are too soft. Also take note that most money exchange in Korea dun accept Singapore dollar. Not sure why also. Even hotel reception does not accept as well.

Great location and friendly receptionist”

the summit hotel located is very convenient as we can travel around with 2 different subway lines (the hotel is in the middle). we are able to shop around till late night around the APM mall and good morning city and walk back in a short distance. so you do not need to carry your shopping haul from far to the hotel. believe me you will buy alot of stuff in korea!
