|Hotel New Oriental Myeongdong
| 1, Toegye-ro 14-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul, Myeong-dong, Seoul, South Korea
Stay = 2 nights (15 and 16 Oct 2016)
Located just opposite the popular Myeongdong shopping district, the location is just superb. Out of of Myeongdong Station (line 4) Exit 6 – walk straight about 2 minutes – Hotel New Oriental Myeongdong is just in front. Lotte Departmental Store and Shinsegae are just a stone throw away.
We were here for 2 nights for triple sharing room with attached bathroom at SGD150 per night. No breakfast included. Nearby are McDonalds and Paris Baguette.
One morning, I went to Myeongdong where one street stall manned by ajumma selling pan fried bread with egg/ham/cheese (can choose) and shredded cabbage as topping for breakfast. Nice. She is here only in the morning. Something like one gets from Issacs.
As usual, the comforts of a hotel are available. Room is big enough for us. Were quite disappointed with one single bed and a double bed. Hoping for 3 single beds. However, it is clean. I like the 2 armchairs available.
Bathroom is also big with strong hot/cold water pressure.
Check-in is fast and service is professionable. At the lobby, there are some cosmetic items for sale.
There is a roof-top garden where you can have a good view of Namsan Tower and surroundings.
