Hi guys,

I will be transit in Seoul from US on a return trip to Singapore.

I am thinking to have a stopover in Seoul for 2 nights.

Its my first visit to Seoul.

Any recommendation for hotel (about S$100~S$120 per night)?

Any places of interests should go?

I will be staying 2 nights only. Prefer not to travel too far from the city.

Thanks in advance!

stay at co op residence., fits your budget. Dondaemung is stone throw away and you can shop till you drop happy.gif .

move around the city is easier than in Sing as their metro subway is easy to understand and cheap.

Go stay at ibis Myeong dong, right beside all the shopping and restaurants and across from Lotte Seoul.... subway station is a few steps away and the airport limo bus brings you right to the door step....

dongdaemun has a bigger nite market and more local food, where myeong dong and lotte is more for youngster and more up market. Anyway, its walking distance between them, less than 1/2 hr walk. Take a train if you think its too far.

i walked during the winter cos i wanna to be freezed, something you dont get to feel it here....... rolleyes.gif

Look into the hotel website and there are directions on how to get to it from airport. At airport itself, ask around, the Koreans are very friendly people......

Bro, the Ibis Myeong dong location is good but for 2 nights, the rate is from USD 360.

I see if I can find something about USD250 around this area. If cannot then I will book this hotel.

Ibis Myeong dong will be the cheapest in the area, and fyi, they have free wifi throughout the property.

Depending when you are going, Closer to Christmas, all hotelsmwill be expensive.... i checked the rates, Jan is cheapest, down to US110 per night....


The other way to get Cheaper rate for ibis is to call up Accor in Singapore and join the membership, and you will a few free nights at all their hotels. ask them to book two nights for you and you will have some nights leftover for other of their hotels all over the world...
