“Loved It”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stayed at the Prince Hotel in Seoul for 3 nights and found it to be in the perfect location and very comfortable. Its a small boutique hotel located in the heart of the main shopping area Myeong-dong. From the airport (1 hour drive) you can catch a cab for about AUD$77 or the 6015 airport bus for about AUD$20 which stops across the road from the hotel at Sejong Hotel. Check in was easy and the staff were very friendly, English not that great but that didn't bother us. Our room was small (but you are in Seoul), modern furnishings and the bed was very comfortable and we had a great view of the Myeong-dong. Past reviews complained of cigarette smoke in their room, we did experience a little (very little) waft in our room a some stage but soon disappeared.

The hotel is across the road from the main shopping area with heaps of restaurant options and great shopping. Its also walking distance to the night markets and the N Tower. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but there are many options around the hotel. It's a great place to base yourself and discover Seoul, we would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is ideally situated right in front of the myeongdong shopping Street. A subway entrance to connect to the Seoul network of subway trains is less than 50 meters away. The subway entrance also serves as an underground shopping center with small shops that would interest both locals and tourists alike.
The hotel staff are quite friendly and have a good command of English and so communication should not be a problem.
Rooms have ample amenities and wiggle room. But the whole point of choosing this hotel is location location location :) a McDonald shop is really close by for those who are not that adventurous
I would definitely consider staying in this hotel in my family's next visit to seoul

Situated just a stone throw from exit 2 of myeondong station (u can exit at exit 3 if u want to use the escalator. Just 1 min extra walk), it is excellently situated near the hub of myeongdong shopping district. U can easily walk to lotte or shinsege so the price was actually cheap considering this. Room was surprisingly spacious n hotel staffs were helpful. We left our luggage after check out time to do a bit more exploring too!

Travelled to Seoul with hubby and adult son.

Smooth and easy direct communication (Ms. Lily & Mr.Matthew) with hotel reservation as we special request for room with configuration of 1 Queen + 1 Single beds.

Upon arrival and presentation of reservation confirmation, check-in was smooth and fast after credit card guarantee transaction.

Location: Great.
a. Cross the road or via the underground and you are in Myeondong shopping haven. Close to retail therapy. After shopping there you can return to hotel and be away from the noisy and people traffic congestion!
b. 10 to 15 minutes walk to tourist attractions such Namdaemum market, City Hall, Lotte Dept. 20 minutes walk to Insadong. Catch a bus shuttle to Namsan Park and Seoul Tower.
c. Almost next to the Myeongdong subway station.
d. Check with hotel concierge for helpful information. We got ours from Mr. David (Concierge).

Room: Comfortable
Blue room – spacious, clean, boutique ambience. Good bathroom amenities. Comfortable bed and fluffy pillows.

The room itself was spacious, well kept and cleaned. It was cosy and comfortable to rest and relax after a day out.

Free Wifi available

Breakfast: Good
Sufficient variety for a hearty breakfast.

Airport transfer : Convenient
The shuttle stop for the airport coach is just a few minutes across the road. See current time-table attached and directions to the shuttle stop. The airport coach bus is quite comfortable and arrived on time at the shuttle stop and airport. Rate: KRW10,000 Time: 60 – 70 mins to Incheon Airport. Note: This shuttle stop also serves transfer to Gimpo Airport.

Hotel staff : Attentive, Polite, Helpful

Will definitely stay again on next visit.

Just next to the Myeongdong Subway Station Exit 2 and Airport Shuttle Bus. Thus, transportation is not an issue anymore. We stayed here for 3 days 2 nights and I would say that it's not enough to explore the area yet. It's also walking distance to N Seoul Tower or to the Namsan Cable Car and just asked the friendly staffs for the direction. They will give out a map and point the direction. We decided to walk to the Namsan Cable Car as my kids want to explore the Cable car.

Across the street are the shopping areas and not to worry about food. As lots of eateries around the area.

You won't get lost if you stay in the hotel as you could just go to any subway station and ride to Myeongdong subway.

I travelled in June 2013.

Location is good as it's near the airport shuttle bus stop across the street and also a minute away from Myeongdong subway station exit 2. Shopping is just across the road and there's many eateries around with 2 convenience stores below the hotel. Can walk to the namsan cable car tower or even to N Seoul Tower from the hotel.

Staff are polite and rooms are clean (stayed in the business double room and twin room c). There's 2 bottled water provided daily and reception is 24 hours.

Will recommend people to stay here and will also stay here the next time!

The location is excellent. The room service is excellent.
The reception is friendly and excellent including Kevin Lee and the Mandarin speaking staffs who gave us a lot of help.

The morning buffet is beautiful.

Only the shower door is a bit hard to get in when the shower is turned on.

Room Tip: higher floors better view
