Travelodge Dongdaemun

Situated in the city’s central Jung District, the 242-room hotel will offer new and loyal guests, defined by the brand as ‘Travel Trailblazers’, unparalleled access to a dynamic mix of top global attractions and local hidden gems.

The hotel’s 242 stylish and well-equipped rooms are designed to reflect the contemporary and electric undercurrent of the city, with a selection of room types ranging from Superior rooms for solo voyagers to spacious Deluxe rooms for families.

Corporate travellers have access to fully-furnished conference rooms in the hotel for private business meetings. The Travelodge Grab n’Go nestled in the lobby provides time-strapped guests with quick and fuss-free breakfast options. Alternatively, travellers with the luxury of time can enjoy a leisurely breakfast between 07.00AM and 10.00AM at The Lodge, Travelodge’s signature all-day dining concept serving meals throughout the day. The hotel also features a rooftop garden where guests can kick back in the evening and enjoy chimaek – a quintessentially Korean set of fried chicken and beer with breathtaking views of Dongdaemun on one side and Seoul Tower on the other.

Access to a shoppers paradise, from day to night
Located in the globally renowned fashion and design epicentre of Seoul, Travelodge Dongdaemun is only a short walk from signature wholesale shopping destination Dongdaemun Shopping Complex, the popular Pyounghwa Fashion Town and multi-level fashion plazas Doota, Migliore, and Hello apM, which stay open into the early hours of the morning. The shopaholics paradise of Myeongdong is also located just three train stations away, featuring tax-free shopping across a huge range of luxury and high street fashion and cosmetics brands. Once travellers have had their fill of 24/7 retail therapy they can take to the surrounding streets, which come alive at night with neon lights and regular live concerts and dance performances.

Outdoor markets like Dongdaemun Night Market, Open Market and Gwangjang Market are also key shopper hotspots not to be missed. The oldest market in Seoul, Gwangjang Market, is a short walk from Travelodge Dongdaemun, offering an expansive array of traditional Korean hanboks, fabrics and textiles. The adjoining food alley boasts an impressive line-up of the city’s best street eats, from freshly cooked noodles and handmade dumplings to spicy rice cakes and mung bean pancakes.

For culture vultures
The hotel is located at the exit of Eujiro 4-ga Station and in close proximity to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station, putting culture seekers in the heart of the action with the likes of Heunginjimun Gate and Dongdaemun Seonggwak Park on their doorstep. The architecturally iconic Dongdaemun Design Plaza is also within walking distance – a must-see hub where young Korean buskers, emerging culinary talents, and local artisanal craftsmen descend as night falls. Euljiro, a recently gentrified neighbourhood with independent artist studios, quirky cafes, record shops and hidden bars, is also just one train stop away.
