Where to Stay in Seoul Myeongdong

If there’s one famous street you should know in Seoul South Korea, it is Myeongdong. Bustling Myeongdong is a shopping area packed with international fashion brands, luxury department stores and homegrown cosmetics shops. Many travelers visit there to buy super valued local cosmetic products and indulge in delicious local eateries. Hotels there, as a result, are very popular. So you may be wondering, where to stay in Seoul Myeongdong? Out of so many hotels, I decided to choose NINE TREE Premier Hotel Myeongdong 2 and I stayed there for 3 nights. Here’s why I think it’s the best hotel in town.
