A lovely hotel in the heart of buzzy Seoul surrounded by shops and eateries. Easy access to the metro to travel round, but we largely walked everywhere. Very friendly staff - helpful with good English. Our room was very clean with a comfy bed and a great bathroom. Breakfast was included and it was a buffet with all you could want A great option for this area of the city

Super convenient if you love to shop for masks, accessories, snacks and general brands. If you love street food then this is the place to stay. Check in is on the top floor. You are welcomed with a nice view and the front desk staff are all very welcoming and can speak good English, Korean and Japanese! Very courteous with good japanese hospitality experience. There is a WOW pass machine at the lobby which made it extra convenient. Otherwise I wouldn’t really know where to find one. Room is a bit small. I could still open one large luggage to pack and unpack. If you have more luggage then you just need to take turns to open them. Although room is small, layout is good and you have everything you need, except toothbrush and tooth paste. I like that the toilet is separate from the shower and there is also a separate bath tube in the shower area. Housekeeping even folded my child’s clothes on the first day. Though the other days, they didn’t. Breakfast doesn’t have a lot of varieties although it was sufficient with healthy options. It also wasn’t crowded so it was relaxing to have breakfast there unlike other large hotels. Would definitely stay here again if I can arrive and depart before 10am. Why? The roads close for street hawkers and pedestrians so it was a hassle to drag my luggage for 5 mins from the drop off point. One point to improve are the pillows, one is too soft and the other one is too hard. Otherwise I loved the hotel and would recommend it for sure.

100% satisfaction. Room cleaning is completely excellent. I have young children always make the room completely messy but the room cleaning personnel never fail to perfect the room as though we first staying. Buffet is just right for me and my family. Simple but cosy. Comfort and extremely convenient as we stay right at the heart of Myeongdong night street market. Excellent staff service and very helpful. Train service is very near. About 2 minutes. The only setback - taxi or car transport are unable to come after evening due to the crowd. Other than that, I strongly recommend with family can considered staying here.

Solaria is located right in the middle of Myeongdong, just acrss the street from the famous Myeongdong Kyoja Main Store - a great location. The room is of decent size and the service staff members are friendly, including the chambermaids who greet you as you walk past them. The hotel is within walking distance to a few subway stations and many restaurants and cafe. A very convenient location if one would like to be based in Myeongdong to explore Seoul.
