We'll be staying three nights in Seoul on our way back from Europe the last week of June. It will be our first visit (not counting the compulsory one night stop over on the way over).
While I'm obviously reading the forum and getting a lot of useful info I wonder what the experts would suggest as a good area to stay for a first time visitor.
We'd like to be in an area where you can pop out at night for interesting local food, and perhaps do a bit of sightseeing (if Korean Air are good no doubt we'll be back in Seoul soon!) We don't need nightclubs or shopping or US fast food.
Any suggestions for a nice hotel (under $150US?) would be also welcome.
