Midrange Seoul Hotels near N Seoul TowerJody Houton
South Korea is second only to Japan when it comes to cool Asian city status. Its capital, Seoul is one of the most vibrant and awe-inspiring metropolises in the world, and the iconic N Seoul Tower can be regarded as one of its highlights, not only as a sight and attraction, but also as an area where you can experience hip local culture.

The historically-significant Metro Hotel Seoul – widely credited as being one hotel operating during the initial South Korea tourism boom of the 1960s – is a stylish 3 star hotel in the heart of Myeongdong, and nearby not only the N Seoul Tower but also the wide selection of stores, eateries and cafes in the area. Guests can take the Namsan cable car to the top of Mount Namsan – where the tower is perched – to explore the area around the highest point in Seoul. There you will find restaurants and observation decks.
One popular activity for visitors is to hang padlocks on the tower fence as a symbol of their love for their partner. Spend the day enjoying the outdoor sights of Seoul and the early evening shopping at the different brand name stores in Myeongdong.
Also close by Myeongdong is Hotel Skypark Myeongdong 3, equally as suited to both business and leisure travellers. Located just one kilometre from the city centre and its many attractions, the hotel, like most places within Seoul, is not too far away from a subway station – in this case the Myeong-dong subway station. After a full day shopping and pounding the streets trying to find that bargain or delicious street eat, take the weight off and treat yourself at the Chunjiyun Spa. Other places of interest include the unique Myeongdong Cathedral.
Situated just around the corner from the huge Lotte Department Store, are the tastefully designed and traditionally Korean rooms of the Savoy Hotel Seoul. Guests can choose to shop till you drop at the behemoth of a department store, or along the frenetic streets of Myeongdong. Culture vultures are also in for a treat as the National Folk Museum and beautiful (especially in the Spring season) Gyeongboksung Palace is close by. This area is also great for keen photographers, with the Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine providing awesome opportunities for truly beautiful Korean photos.
