I finally decided to come back to Seoul after skipping on it last 2022. I initially booked this trip because I wanted to see cherry blossoms again but unfortunately, they were already gone by the time I was there 🥲.
I initially wanted to book a room under Hotel the Designers but the prices were too high for me since I was paying for this trip again😆. After browsing through Agoda, I came across Dongdaemun Golden City Hotel!
My only checklist for a room was a bathroom that has a shower head because I’m having a hard time already taking a bath with me having to hold the shower 😅.
Checking out Google Maps, I saw that there was a convenience store right beside the hotel and the subway and bus stops are near the hotel so it was a perfect choice for me!
Coming from the airport, we took the subway to the hotel! Not gonna lie, I was super dependent on Naver Maps during this trip!
I booked a Standard Double Room during our stay and this is what our room looked like! I was so glad that I booked this hotel! The only thing or only downside that I didn’t like was there were only a few sockets and they were so far from me or where I needed them. Bring extension cords if you’ll be booking here too!
Reasons why I love this hotel or why this hotel will be my new favorite hotel for Seoul –
Close to a subway station
Close to a bus stop
Walking distance to my favorite restaurants/bakeshop – Paris Baguette,신마포갈매기, BBQ Olive Chicken
I mean what more can I ask for 😭

We were supposed to have dinner at 신마포갈매기 after Everland but unfortunately, the restaurant was already closed for the night 😩. We decided to walk around the area to look for a restaurant and we’re glad 신마포갈매기 was closed because we discovered a good Samgyeopsal restaurant near 신마포갈매기!
