Reviewed 12 August 2014

We stayed at Hotel Shin Shin for four nights on our way through Asia for a family wedding. We made sure to ask for a king size bed and were assigned a room in the tower above the restaurant. Overall, we found the room comfortable and relaxing, and truthfully, more modern and cleaner than some hotel rooms we've seen in the US of comparable price. I know folks had issues with construction in earlier reviews, but we never heard it...though that might be because most of the heavy structural building seems to be done, and we always had the white noise of the a/c going when we were in the room.

Foodwise, there's a 7-11 down the block, and a few bakeries within a block or so. There's also a few 24 hour restaurants within two blocks that were great to visit as well! The hotel restaurant is "ok" and honestly, with the cheaper food options nearby, there's no need to rely on it if you don't feel like it.

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and explore more of the area, as it's just up the block from Namdaemun Market, a great place to wander around!

We took the opportunity to stay in a superior room, and really enjoyed our stay. The room, set in a separate building from the main hotel, was new, clean, and all the equipment was top-notch. Since the hotel is very modern, you won't get a cultural experience while staying, of course.

We found Shinshin to be an excellent base for expeditions around Seoul; the location is great and the room comfortable enough that you are always fully charged for next day's sightseeing.

Great small hotel, totally new, with comfortable beds, near metro station and with plenty of restaurants to choose from in the neighborhood. The price was fair. The staff were kind and willing to help. Absolutely recommended.

The concierges at Hotel Shinshin were truly amazing. They each spoke 3-4 languages (English, Korean, Japanese, and some spoke Mandarin as well) FLUENTLY, they were extremely polite and very helpful and efficient with everything - from helping with subway directions to calling a cab, etc.

The location of the hotel is also very convenient - right in Myeongdong's shopping area, and near the City Hall subway station. It was very easy to get to the subway station and although most stores close around 9PM, there's also a few 7/11s nearby for late-night outings to buy snacks or amenities.

The hotel rooms were very clean and pretty standard (except the toilets were pretty high-tech), and there's free wifi.

Unless you're looking for a hotel with a good view (which you probably won't get because there's construction next door), there's really nothing to complain about in regards to Hotel Shinshin and I would definitely recommend that you stay here on a trip to Seoul.

The hotel is modern and lovely. Comvenient location. The room was small but clean. The smart toilet would be easier to use if it was labeled in English (my was set for long heavy flush every time). Service desk Katrina Kim was one of the best experience- she was so helpful and been detailed oriented. I will come back to stay in this hotel.

We stayed three nights in hotel Shinshin. The staffs there were very nice and helpful, most of them can speak multiple foreign languages, such as English, Chinese, Japaneses, and of course Korean.

We were in and out of the hotel during 10:00am - 2:30pm 7/25/14, we did not feel any noise from next door's construction.

It is clean and convenience hotel, even the taxi driver recommended by the hotel was excellent (English speaking one).
