Comfortable Lodging Close to Universities and Financial District

Four Major Universities Nearby

Lotte City Hotel Mapo, a member of the Lotte Hotels & Resorts organization, is convenient to several universities, government buildings, and Seoul's business and financial center. Ewha Womans University, Hongik University, Sogang University, and Yonsei University are in Mapo district. Nearby, guests will find Naru, a buffet restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel also offers a health club and an indoor swimming pool. Other amenities and services are 24-hour business center, conference space, on-site shopping, tours and ticket help, and smoking in designated areas.

Excellent Public Transportation and a Choice of Restaurants

Three subway lines and an airport shuttle bus stop near Lotte City Hotel Mapo. Gongdeok Station provides a direct link to subway lines and the Gyeongui Railway in the basement of the hotel. Several popular restaurants are in the neighborhood—if you're looking for Korean table barbecue, try Mapo Chincha Wonjo Choidaepo. Mapo Yangji Seolleongtang, a favorite of both local residents and visitors, serves several varieties of kimchi. 

Sightseeing and Shopping Near the Hotel

The N Seoul Tower, an observation and communications tower on Namsan Mountain in the center of Seoul, is the highest point in the city. Visitors ride a cable car up the mountain and then walk to the tower to enjoy panoramic views that are especially beautiful at night. Myeongdong is Seoul’s main shopping area, and visitors can spend hours exploring the shops on the narrow streets off the main thoroughfares. The Hongdae Area is a neighborhood containing inexpensive clothing shops and coffee houses near the universities and a fun place to people-watch. People who like haggling will love shopping in the maze of stalls at Namdaemun Market.

Free Internet Access in Guest Rooms

The hotel offers free wireless Internet access and free high-speed wired Internet access in all guest rooms. Amenities include coffee- and tea-maker, refrigerator, complimentary bottled water, separate bathtub and shower, and bidet. The beds feature a pillowtop mattress and down comforter.

The Bottom Line

Lotte City Hotel Mapo is conveniently located near the universities. The hotel is a well-situated base for exploring Seoul via the subway system, with just a short train ride to many sightseeing venues and corporate offices. The Grand Hotel Myeongdong, at one end of the shopping area, is similarly priced, but there is a large construction project underway behind that hotel, which means extra noise and less privacy. Guests looking for a relaxing stay are better off choosing Lotte City Hotel Mapo.
